the first page

you have died
You Have Died
  • Oh, brave adventurer! What happened? What went wrong? Where did your path into The Secret Palace meet such an end? Aren’t you glad this is only a game?
  • Only one thing to do then: Start Over!
amazing
Amazing!
  • The moment the pages touch, a blaze of color and light explodes from the book. Birds take flight around you, and a bright door, like shards of glassy power, opens in the air. It might be time for another adventure!
  • Or…
the snake
The Snake
  • You lean in close to read the note in the painting. The print is very tiny.
  • You can lean in even closer to the note,
  • or you can stop inspecting the note in the painting.
the snake34
The Snake
  • “I am not a painting. Yours truly, Snake” Uh oh.
the unicorn
The Unicorn
  • The Unicorn looks noble, standing amidst glorious oak trees. It has one leg raised and seems to be pointing towards the top of the picture with its horn. The sun is rising on the right hand side of the painting.
  • The brass plate on the picture frame says “Message in the Morning.”
  • Stop inspecting the painting.
the knight
The Knight
  • The Knight rides proudly upon his armor-clad steed. However, behind the Knight is a scene you didn’t notice from far away. At left there are thin hedges and steep cliffs just on the other side. At right there is a path that runs straight through a forest, but goes on forever off to the right.
  • Stop inspecting the painting.
the mirror
The Mirror
  • In the reflection of the mirror, you see yourself get closer as you lean in. You look carefully, and see the room behind you, but leaning in, you are lower and can see the reflection of the ceiling too, which is painted with an ornate pen writing in some ancient language on the pages of a glowing book.
  • Stop inspecting the mirror.
the vase
The Vase
  • The vase is made of rough, almost jagged green stone. It has no hole in the top, so you cannot see inside. It looks heavy, but it isn’t too large.
  • Try to pick up the vase.
  • Stop inspecting the vase.
the vase39
The Vase

  • Smash the vase on the ground.
  • Stop inspecting the vase.
the vase40
The Vase
  • The vase sloshes. There is definitely liquid inside.
the vase41
The Vase
  • No sound comes from the vase, but with it this close to your face, you catch a whiff of its scent.
the vase42
The Vase
  • The vase shatters. The brittle, jagged stone pieces scrape and grind against each other, sending a shower of sparks everywhere, which instantly ignites the volatile liquid inside in a gigantic fireball.
  • You know your eyebrows are gone… but are you missing anything else?
the vase43
The Vase
  • The vase reeks terribly, and your eyes burn a little when you smell it deeply. Your hands feel a little oily, so you decide not to wipe your eyes, and instead take it away from your face.
the gold coins
The Gold Coins
  • There are thirteen coins in the stack. Around the base of the stack on the pedestal is a tiny inscription in black script: “One to all, two to none, three for me, and the other ton.”
  • Take a coin.
  • Don’t take a coin.
the gold coins45
The Gold Coins
  • You take one gold coin. It is heavy for its size. The coin bears the inscription “XIII” on both sides and is ridged on the edge.
  • A ticking sound begins, and slowly, the stack moves upwards. Another gold coin appears at the bottom of the stack! The ticking sound slows, then stops.
  • Take another coin.
  • Stop inspecting the stack.
the gold coins46
The Gold Coins
  • You take another gold coin. A ticking sound begins, and slowly, the stack moves upwards. A bright red coin appears at the bottom of the stack! The ticking sound doesn’t slow down this time, but continues.
  • Take another coin.
  • Stop inspecting the stack.
the gold coins47
The Gold Coins
  • You take a third gold coin. The ticking sound slows… and slows some more… until it stops. Suddenly, there is a loud crack, and the stack of coins falls quickly into the pedestal.
  • Suddenly, what sounds like crashing cymbals from above draws your attention quickly to the ceiling! COINS! Uh-oh…
the gold coins48
The Gold Coins
  • You do not take a coin. You step away from the pedestal, and as you lift your foot, the tile beneath it snaps up with a click.
  • A voice booms out from somewhere above. “You are too good for my generosity? I said one for all, not only those who choose!”
  • That can’t be good. And what’s that ticking coming from the pedestal? Uh oh.
the gold coins49
The Gold Coins
  • A voice whispers from somewhere above. “The wise know that neither too few nor too many is best. What is best, is best.”
  • You look up. There is no one there.
the gold coins50
The Gold Coins
  • A voice whispers from somewhere above. “Two to NONE!” it hisses.
  • You look up. There is no one there. Tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick tick… tick… tick… snap. Uh-oh.
ka boom
Ka-BOOM!
  • Oops. That probably didn’t feel too good.
  • You know what that means…
the gold coins52
The Gold Coins
  • You do not take a coin. You step away from the pedestal, and as you lift your foot, the tile beneath it snaps up with a click.
  • A voice booms out from somewhere above. “You are too good for my generosity? I said one for all, not only those who choose!”
  • That can’t be good. And what’s that ticking coming from the pedestal? Uh oh.
