- Elodea Show Spoiler
On the 54th expedition of the Fan Ages Touring Club we started the exploration of Elodea, by Dulcamara. See Minasunda’s video for part 1!
First released on May 2013 – with an exploration party that inspired these expeditions – Elodea is one of the most popular fan ages released, and one of the largest, so much that it was split in four ‘levels’: the Upperworld, the Underworld (Unterwelt), the Tunnel Passage (Tunnelgang) and the Treasure Rooms (Schatzkammern).
Each level can be solved individually. Each level has 7 journey cloths: finding all cloths for a level opens a previously secret area and a ‘key’ that will be needed for the last puzzle. The order does not matter, and anyone in a group can touch a cloth to activate it.
The initial link-in point is a large hall, with a special cloth on the wall that will link you close to the last cloth touched. Close to the main island there are smaller ones that act as ‘places of protection’ for books to other ages by Dulcamara, Alabaster and the yet unreleased Gallardien.
A walkthrough by Dulcamara herself is available in this thread, but keep in mind that the age is updated every now and then, and some parts of the walkthrough are no longer current.
The initial release had rather basic lighting; a few years later it underwent a complete overhaul, adding shadows and expanding a few areas, making Elodea an age that reveals a new surprise at every new visit, even after all the puzzles are solved.
A recording of the Twitch stream is available.
Next time (March 7 at 11:00 KIT) we will continue our visit to the second level of Elodea, Unterwelt. Until then!
