“Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, and its edge was hard and keen. And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West.”
MadPea likes to keep its group, now counting 15.000 members, busy in between new games by organising exPEAditions. The format is a simple hunt build around a little story with a cute gift at the end, if you manage to find the 10 items you need to gather. This time the exPEAdition was hosted by Anduril.
Anduril is a fascinating mix of nature and urban jungle. Part forlorn and lost in time, part seemingly inhabited, as if some people stumbled upon a lost city and started living there, slowly building a new existence around the remnants of what could have been a thriving society once.
There are plenty of spots perfect for quiet contemplation or meditation. Some areas feel quite ordinary others seem to be from a page in a fairy tale book, till you turn a corner and end up in a place with a past so dark it is plagued by eternal rains, chilling you to the bone. The darkness makes you want to run away, yet the secrets pull you in deeper.
In this crazy varied landscape with a million and one little things to discover, MadPea had me looking for the parts of a little robot that sadly had fallen, scattering its pieces all over the place. Once I had found all the pieces and a handy screwdriver as well as a book with the self-explanatory title “Robots for Dummies”, I was finally able to put him back together again and we became the best of friends.
Now go become friends with MadPea by joining the group (it’s free!) and keep yourself in the loop of what’s happening.
