The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #143 - Quest Mode

04.4.12

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives
for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure activities,
and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm
at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
We'll endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight).

On this bike ride, you might expect:
- inconvenient passageways
- oblique strategies
- Oulipian constraints
- disorientation
- reorientation
- "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- amateurish enthusiasm
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- karaoke
- geocaching
- full moon picnics
- traffic median tea parties
- rivers that no longer exist
- smell tourism
- Couchwick v2.0

Furthermore:
- usually 20-35 miles
- usually some hills
- a medium pace (probably not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- few stops, short stops
- but we're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light
- victory donuts!

This week:

Quest Mode


Behold: the Mountain of Fire. Home to the Goron race, it engulfs much
of the Fire Realm in the re-established land of Hlyrule. At its summit
is the Fire Temple, one of the four special temples that power the
Tower of Spirits and sustains the existence of the Spirit Tracks. It
is located in the northeastern quadrant of Hlyrule, with the two known
paths to it leading from the Tower of Spirits and the neighboring
Water Realm. The mountain rises well above sea level and is inhabited
by three large Snurglars that roam its slopes. In recent years, the
Mountain of Fire has been violent and unstable, wreaking havoc on the
Goron tribe and their village.

This week we venture out in search of the realm's guardian Lokomo,
Embrose. However, the Fire Sanctuary, the abode of Embrose, is closed
off to wheeled vehicles, even those upon which we shall be traveling.
Therefore, beyond a certain point, our steeds must be abandoned and we
shall continue on foot. We will be forced to dodge the multiple
boulders of fiery rock and ash that fall from the sky and blast them
with our Cannon of the Spirit Train as we make our way upward. If we
are successful in our quest, we shall perform a Lokomo Duet with the
guardian and fully restore the tracks leading up the mountain. Our
names will be entered into the Fire Tree Chronicle and we shall return
to feast upon the finest donuts in the realm.

* Minimal mileage, but a solid three-donut quest nonetheless. For the
hills they are steep and the off-roading will be on foot. Indeed, the
hiking portion is somewhat steep in parts and either soft or rocky or
both, so again I recommend against shoes with clipless cleats. If you
must wear those, bringing an adtl. pair of shoes to change into is
advisable. No joke. We don't want anyone to get hurt (or fall off a
mountain). ...Oh, and bring locks!
