PostSubject: Treasure Hunt - Mathew Howard   Mon Apr 17, 2017 7:11 pm

The Great Hall begins to empty as the students trickle out from breakfast. Eventually, the Hall is bare of any students except for you, and as you stand from your seat to leave your attention is pulled away from the treasure hunt by something unusual out of the corner of your eye. At the front, where the Professors usually sit, is a pedestal. It’s not that tall, perhaps only half your height, and is pure white. You can see intricate designs of leaves carved around it.

On top of the pedestal is a chest. You take a few steps closer to investigate. It’s not too large but you know that with magic, it could hold far more than meets the eye. It is a bit shabby and old looking, as if it's gone unopened for many years, a layer of dust and what seems to be cobwebs covering it. There are hints of water damage; the lock is tight and made of a strong metal that has some traces of rust on it, and there is moss growing on the side of the chest.


What do you do?

a) Approach and investigate the chest
b) Open the chest with Alohomora
c) Ignore the chest and leave the Great Hall

Signing up to the Treasure Hunt had been a decision made on a whim. Not something Mathew did often, but he had done so on the guess that others would follow him. More specifically, he was wondering if a certain Ravenclaw would do it. This would create an opening in conversation. Not that Mathew was a big talker. But an opening.

It was therefore unsurprising that as the hall emptied, Mathew was presented with a chest upon a pedestal. The Hufflepuff gave it very little regard before he got up, wand almost instantly in his hand as he moved closer. He might have been born Muggle, but the wand he'd gotten on his eleventh birthday had been something of a welcome, empowering addition to his life. Something he never went without, either.

Mathew's eyes took in the chest, though. Water damaged. It had been in the Lake, perhaps? Maybe there was a portal... or some kind of creature that could walk on both land, and in the water. Narrowing his eyes, but not moving any closer, Mathew opted for the safest option. Open the chest from a distance, and then deal with the consequences.


b) Open the chest with Alohomora

Deciding that the best option is to use Alohomora, you get out your wand and cast the spell, moving the wand in the familiar ‘s’ shape. The purple light hits the chest and a click echoes around the hall as the lock opens and drops to the floor. Nothing happens for a moment and you take a step closer. Suddenly, the top bursts open and there are squeaks that fill the empty hall. There is a blur of blue as something emerges from the chest and flies over your head.

The door to the great hall slams shut and you turn to find that it’s being guarded by six creatures. They are eight inches high and are electric blue. They have long pointed ears and long arms, three fingers on each hand. You recognise them as Cornish Pixies.

They start chattering to each other, loud, shrill noises that hurts your ears. You notice one of them is holding a piece of paper -- that must be the clue! Gripping your wand tightly, you prepare to fight them.


a) Defeat the pixies in order to receive the clue. End your post with picking up the clue.

Using Alohomora to open the chest was a wise decision, even if not necessary, Mathew had summarised when six blue creatures flew from the box. In an instant, he knew that this was definitely the Treasure Hunt, and seemingly the professors were not going to make it too easy for any of them.

Mathew's eyes followed the creatures, setting two of the beasts on fire before they could do much more damage. But, after the second had fallen in a ball of flames, the Hufflepuff had noted that one of the creatures was holding a note. A clue. Biting back the word Incendio in that moment, Mathew's eyes focused on the pesky creatures left.

"Immobulus!" He spoke, voice deadly low, as the spell hurtled towards the four creatures, and froze them in place. "Accio clue." Mathew added, snatching the piece of paper from the air once it was close enough.

A small, sinister smile touched the Hufflepuff's lips. Perhaps this wasn't going to be as bad as he first thought...

The clue reads:

Brewing potions isn’t easy unless you have all the ingredients and the skill. Luckily, three have already been made for you. Find them where you first learnt how to use your cauldron. Choose wisely and your next clue will be revealed.

Quickly, you make your way down to the dungeons, bypassing empty classrooms until you reach the Potions Classroom. Stepping inside, you find, as the note had said, three small glasses on the table. You approach them.

The first contains liquid that is clear and has no special scent, instead appearing to be water. Upon closer examination, you realise that it’s slightly thicker than normal water, but other than that there’s nothing to give away what it could be.

The second glass has a light gold liquid inside, reminding you of the sky at sunset. It’s got swirls of orange inside, and smells faintly of carrots, but other than that has no scent. It’s thick, like medicine, but doesn’t look unpleasant.

The last glass contains a beautiful dark blue liquid that sparkles in the light. There appears to be bits and pieces of glitter inside it as it refracts the light. It smells familiar, but you can’t quite place it. It makes you feel safe and relaxed.

You are now faced with a choice.


Which potion do you drink?

a) The clear, almost water-like liquid
b) The bright golden liquid
c) The dark blue, sparkly liquid

(OOC: At the end of your post, please make your choice clear by writing it in another colour, or bolded.)
