Find out who, what, when, where, why, and how
Find out who, what, when, where, why, and how is the first of two in a chain of mini-quests. It is rewarded with a wonderbox and followed by Go there, do that, get the t-shirt. The hero will encounter no boss.
There are times (and quests) when "42" is not a sufficient answer. This quest is such (a quest, not a time, of course!). How to solve this quest, then? While heroes tend to do so by killing monsters and more monsters, we shall think about each of the questions for itself:
There are four major demographic groups in Godville:
- The heroes: The heroes can be excluded as they neither possess the necessary intelligence to host such a what. Also, they wouldn't have to solve the quest, then.
- The traders: Traders can be excluded as well, as the quest has got a reward. Were traders involved, it wouldn't.
- The monsters: Although it is known that there can be friendships between monsters and heroes, their relationship is tensed. Apart from random encounters on the street, there could never be such a what featuring monsters and heroes.
- The boss-monsters: Boss-monsters aren't evil. They just don't like being disrupted in their personal area. Usually, they are great hosts! Is it really that improbable that a nice skilled boss-monster celebrated a what and thanked a hero for coming with a self-created Wonderbox?
What does a hero aim for in life? Correct, beer! The boss-monster hosts a party with loads of beer!
In the second section of this quest chain, Go there, do that, get the t-shirt, the hero seems to finally go there. If we now add the estimated durations of these quests, assuming ten minutes per quest, we get:
- 10min + 10min = 20min
- This means the party will take place twenty minutes after the beginning of quest of the quest Find out who, what, when, where, why, and how. With
- t = x + 20min; mod 1440
- where x equals the time of day and
- [x] = min
- one can easily calculate the exact time of the party.
As mentioned in the introduction, "42" is not always a sufficient answer. Here it is, though.
This interrogative particle doesn't start with a "w" and is thus, according to §54b, 74-85, not valid.
