I'm hopping mad.
Well, I have to say that I'm disappointed with everyone's performance. All I wanted was to get out of the
city for a couple days and maybe spend some time working on my stamp collection, without having to worry
about my idiot sister. Instead I come back to find that she's been doped up with 2-Diethylaminoethyl
4-aminobenzoate lethe-chloride again. Couldn't you people at least try to keep her out of
trouble? You know that she's denying-the-antecedent; she'll just throw her past away if you give her
If you don't start being more careful, then you're not going to have any place at all in the New Order that I plan to create.
Anyway, you're probably wondering what I thought of Romania. The touristy areas in Bucharest are nice, but once you
get out into the countryside, everything is just completely infested with vampires. (I thought that vampires
were only a problem in the Transylvania district, but apparently they've been multiplying lately.)
They're not the sexy goth kind of vampires, either; they're about two steps up from zombies and they're
just completely tedious. I had to stop every five miles to buy more ammo, and I finally just gave up
and went back to the hotel.
Speaking of vampires, I've always thought that society has done Dracula a great injustice. Everyone
assumes that he's like he's portrayed in that Bram Stoker novel and all those Hollywood movies. But the
historical Dracula was a lot more interesting than that.
For today's first puzzle, tell me the historical Dracula's real last name. (Same rules as usual. Replace the word
"index" in the URL with your answer, and use lowercase letters only.) If you can follow that trail all the
way to the end, I'll give you the location of the Fourth Key.
I'm also going to throw in a bonus puzzle. This is rather harder than the first one...I don't think you'll
be able to find the answer on the Internet, or anywhere in Paragon City. You might find it out in the world,
if you know where to look.
I'm sure you've all seen the statue of the superhero Atlas near City Hall, and you've read the plaque at
its base. So you know that Atlas died during the invasion of Paragon City, on December 7, 1941. My idiot
sister and I hadn't even been born then.
Had things played out differently, Atlas might have lived longer, and he might have met us. He might also have
met our creator, the late and unlamented Dr. Ferris. He might even have encountered one of Dr. Ferris' projects,
the "Thompson Harmonizer".
So here is my question to you: Had Atlas known about the Thompson Harmonizer, what would he have done? The answer can
be given in one word.
Your reward for the right answer will be information about "Project X". Actually I'll be suprised if anyone gets
this one right. I might give out another hint in a few weeks.
