** complete chat can be found here **

later we found that there has been two simulation running:
Simulation 19194127
Simulation 19194128

There was a new channel named #settings.

The Tower Bot

The Tower sent this message:

" https://discord.com/api/oauth2/authorize?client_id=768485938623283210&permissions=0&scope=bot

Server Shutdown Imminent"

The Link is a Discord Bot which we put into a channel #the-tower-primary of the OOG Discord server.
From a test channel we know that the bot expected a synchronize command
Now we were abel to directly chat with the Tower "bot"

SYNCHRONIZE_TOWER

SYNCHRONIZING.

Synchronization Complete.

Time and time again, explorers venture here to discover the secrets of the Tower of Lost Times.

But time and time again, their time here ends and the progress they make is lost to the ether.

Now you are here, and soon you'll fail. Will your knowledge of what you've discovered be preserved until the next time someone encounters the Tower?

You find yourself in front of a large door at the base of a Tower. The Tower rises imposingly above you.

The door is slightly ajar.

What do you do?

Go inside Tower

we needed for players that inputs the same command

4/4

You push the door open and find yourself at the southern entrance of a large hallway.

To the north, at the far end of the room is a massive double-door. A symbol is carved into it.

To the left side of the room (west), there are 4 doors, equally spaced.
The right side of the room (east) also contains a set of 4 doors, equally spaced.

You see small cracks running throughout the walls.

What do you do?

Check my inventory

4/4

You examine your inventory and find a strange bag.
Reaching into it you feel an almost limitless space.
You recall you can call to mind an item you've previously put into the bag to recover it.
You do not recall what you've previously placed within.

Examine all of the symbols on the doors

On the left side, from closest to furthest, you see the symbols of Order, Stability, Knowledge, and Schemes.
On the right side, from closest to furthest, you see the symbols for Peace, Judgement, Death, and Chaos.

Synchronized.
19194127: Balance Door
19194128: Balance Hall

All 8 of the smaller circles on the door are glowing.

The north door is open.

Beyond you see an octagonal room.
There are 8 doors (one on each wall, including the one that they just opened).

Speculation: the other group has opened the north door. It seesm that there is another simulation running which is synchronized with our simulation. That is the reason why the norther (Balance) door is now open.

Enter octagonal room

As you enter, the door behind you slams shut.

The northwest, northeast, southwest, and southeast doors begin glowing faintly.

You can hear the sound of something moving behind those doors.

Examine doors

From the northwest door, you make out the sound of loud stomping. From the southeast door, you hear slithering. From the northeast door, you can hear what sounds like barking. From the southwest door, you hear nothing.

The doors have no markings you can make out.

Reference to the Tower communication results: FOUR CREATURES AHEAD FIND FOOD A LOUD SOUND A SOURCE OF FROST AND A MIRROR TO CONTINUE PAST THE ROOM

Congratulate the person who opened the North Door

You start to talk, when you realize there is no one else in this room.

You look a little bit silly talking to the air.

Open West Door

You attempt to open the west door, and find that it doesn't budge.

The Snake an the Mirror

Open SE Door (snake room)

You begin to open up the southeast door, when it slams open.

You can make out the shape of a large snake beginning to slither out from the darkness beyond.

Hiss.

Take Mirror and use on snake

You take out a mirror from your bag and aim it at the snake. After a while, the sound of slithering stops.

Look

You see a stone statue of a large snake. It appears very lifelike, albeit much larger than any snake you've seen before.

Search Snake Room

You find nothing of interest in the snake room.

The Dog and The Food

Open NE room (barking room)

You begin to open up the door slightly, when it slams open.

Inside, you see nothing.

You hear the sound of slobbering behind you.

You feel a warm breath over your shoulder.

Turning towards it, you see a ferocious dog of some sort.

Take meat and throw it

You grab some meat from your bag and consider in which direction to throw it.

Throw meat into snake room

You throw the meat into the southeast room.

As you do so, the dog disappears and reappears inside the southeast room, beginning to chew at the hunk of meat.

Close Door (of snake room)

You attempt to close the southeast door, but it remains open.

The dog continues to chew at the hunk of meat.

Distracted…for now.
