Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Welcome, CBers, to the October~November 2018 scavenger hunt~

This is an adventure the likes of which you haven't known.

Of humor, of wit, of joy, of pain, of sorrow, of mystery, of laughter and tears, music and silence, clarity and confusion...

Prepare to have your world upturned twice and over again without warning or caution--

Beware: You are about to pass the point of no return. For once you start--once you behold the first clue--you will find yourself unable to stop searching.

CBers, you will go through many trials and ultimately be required to solve three individual Locks. Only then will your mission be complete.

What is this mission, this adventure? What secrets does it hold? Why have YOU been chosen for it? And what is that standing behind you???

These answers lie beyond the first clue...Are you prepared to take the dive?
A wave crashes onto the sandy shore, chasing the heels of a swiftly retreating figure.

Farther inland, on the edge of the forest, a breeze blows to meet the waves. Another figure, cloaked, follows the wind down to the sand. The two figures meet.

"It is time," the first one says, and the other nods.

"Are they prepared?" the cloaked one questions and the second one peers off, staring into seemingly nothing.

"They are eager," the second one replies after a few moments, with a shrug.

The two figures stand in silence.

The waves grow louder.

And the scene is bathed in white.


The first clue is easy, or so you might think

On the thread that never sinks.

Its name is a lie
And that's where I hide
Nestled between
Pages seven and nine.

Go, CBers. We are waiting for you, ready to deliver the next clue.

The thread that never sinks... a thread that is so popular that it’s stayed on the first page?

The thread that never sinks? AKA, the Ultimate Guide?? I just looked through page 8 and I didn't see anything of significance...

Stellarbee? Staying up till midnight? Winning?

Art Posting? I didn't see anything special on page 8, though.

Maybe "he puts it under the water"?

I know what you’re talking about, and I saw you posted on it but I can’t find your post on page 8...

It could be on pages 7 or 9, maybe.

Yeah, same here. I checked seven and nine as well. Perhaps it’s the wrong thread? They did post on it, though.

The Longest Thread Ever, maybe?

Deepest apologies. This clue lies between pages 21 and 23.

Got it.

Aaand I'm so lost.

Wait no I think I get it!

Yup, I found it! I eagerly await the drop.

Ok...I found the dead drop location. What do I do now?

Message received, lone agent.

The coded instructions as to where you will transport the picture have been sent to the place where you started.
