I surrender, finally...
« on: September 20, 2007, 10:42:30 pm »

Does someone knows where is the creature searched by the VUX captain??

I am so tired of visiting constellations  Undecided... serpentis?? No. Scorpi?? No. Camhaleontis? No!!

Maybe then Hydra, or Camelopardis... no, all wrong places Sad

Don't tell me the solution please, but just give me a suggestion... maybe I simply haven't seen the energy point on the right world...

Here's a small hint: maybe you shouldn't look for energy points :-)

As the previous post suggests, the creature is a biological. I spent oh so many days
looking for the thing. I'm so glad it was an option side-quest.

In fear of giving away to much, the answers to your questions would be yes, and no.

It may speed up your quest to know that the world you seek is near a QuasiSpace portal; which reduces the pool of candidates to around 15 systems.

You'll know it when you encounter it from the lander, as it matches its description in that it's 1)unique and 2)very dangerous (compared to other biologicals, anyway.  Hope you've gotten lander upgrades!).

Having the original printed starmap and being familiar with Antoine de Saint Exupéry's The Little Prince might also help. Wink

(Always wondered if FF and PR3 actually got the riddle's inspiration from this book)

Vulpeculae???  Shocked

I can't believe it... a little discrimination for the players that haven't read the fable  Angry Angry Angry

P.S.: I haven't encountered any race with hints about this... but I have visited almost all... boh

Hmmm... no, the story says it's a boa... but the creature isn't around the only yellow star in Serpentis (Gamma)...

Ok... so the latin traslation is...?  Smiley

Try using the untranslated word, "Linch-Nas-Ploh", as a hint.

Well, you only get these hints if certain conditions are met.
