what does a body have to do to get into the hospital? What does fur cones have to do with it and how many? I have checked every nook and cranny and can't fine it. Please help me!!!

oh, one more thing. What is a triple header?

AEG

This is a fictional story that playingthegame and eastendteddy (Randy) started........ Randy is soon to go into the real hospital shortly for a scheduled procedure (I really don't think you will want to go there) so that was incorporated into their fictional story. Fir cones is just a random item mentioned from the Christmas decorations to maintain an MC theme for the thread. 

Triple Header means that Randy achieved 3 items with one final task....(1) He finished the Castle Challenge (he thought he would be in the hospital before it was over)....(2)....finishing the Castle Challenge gave him a new avatar........(3) That avatar he got from finishing the Castle Challenge also helped him meet the Master of Disguise achievement.....so he got the Werewolf (wolfie) avatar. 

Don't take this thread seriously......it will hurt your brain (at least it does mine) to try to figure it all out.

Putting my broom down, having done its punitive work, I bow slightly towards A.e.gram  

“Thank you, Oh! archivist”, who has a brain far more succinct than that grey-whiskered pre-op RoboRandy.   

She has notebooks and papers all over her own room; so much so that we can’t even find any dust-bunnies however hard we try when sweeping it.  

I wasn’t aware that she was aware of our dire predicament, never mind being in the same room as us. We feel honoured.  

She fixes me in a stern gaze: “I strongly advise you hold the poor man’s arm as he is about to get all dreamy and serious as he does his best to scare the bloomers off our young acolyte Jenny wren!”  

That flipperty-gibbet does love the animal kingdom so much that I have decided she is a bird (but not of the coarse-minded sort!).  

There are also a young fledgling MC player huddled in the corner, hoping that she has escaped notice. But eagle–eyed Annie smiles at her and encourages her to watch and learn, before weeping.

I look cautiously around the room, then unzip my mouth. 

"Wait... am I about to die?" I panic. "Because I have a bucket list!" 

I whip it out of my corset. There are screams and pleas for me to put it back. 

"Oh, sorry", I find my bucket list instead, clear my throat and begin... 

1. Reach level 74 
2. Get first place in the tournament 
3. See a whale up close 
4. Visit Karlskrona 
5. Spend an entire day rolling around on the grass with 20 puppies. 
6. Steal a blimp

10. Find out how Game of Thrones ends

"Well Randy, the criminally insane do tend to get distracted easily." 

I notice orderlies peering in the Tavern window. "Found them!" One calls out. 

"Pre-op Cap'n Robo Randy for the love of God, finish the story!!!" I cry. "We don't have much time! Who is Murk? Look at PTG! See how desperate she is?!" 

PTG hits me with a broom. "I'm a MAN!" 

I am startled. "But... but... " I slowly extend my hand towards PTG's face. He slaps it away.

The orderlies and guards slowly surround pre-op Cap'n RoboRandy. It takes a while. 

"What da heck is you all doin surroundin MOI wif such stelf… and bats?!"

Pre-op Cap'n RoboRandy is set upon. The ensuing struggle upturns the dice table, Santa, PTG and all his carefully swept up Christmas baubles. 

"Oh well that just does it!" 

"PTG, NO! Don't eat your new broom!" I shuffle back into the corner where Abbi the seahorse hid in terror for so long. A stray snow globe rolls my way and I tuck it into my corset. I'm surprised it doesn’t look odd. I know what is coming, so kick one to PTG. He either understands, or just shoved it up his wedding dress for kicks. 

The monkey has officially had enough and leaps out through the window.

"Hey, you didn't pay your tab!" Salty runs after him. 

"There's no avoiding this Randy!" One orderly grunts as he's kicked in the face. Pre-op Cap'n RoboRandy is putting up a great fight! 

"You thunk I goin wif you, ya got a hed full a wet mice!" Pre-op Cap'n RoboRandy wails before a guard hits him over the head with a bat. "As I was saying, I'm quite scared and do not want to go with you and I'm asking you to respect my wishes and my personal space!" 

Through a thick mouthful of ice cream I cry "Don't hit him again!" 

But it's too late. "Git offa me! FROST! Where MOI rider?" 

"Oh for crying out loud…"

I come to and find myself sitting on the floor in a circle with several other people and a man in a white coat. 

"Hi, I'm Nancy, and I've been addicted to Midnight Castle for about two years now." 

A dull, medicated chorus chants "Hi Nancy." 

Oh dear God not again! 

"At first I'd just play for a couple of hours a day... then it was like most of the weekend... then I'd start calling in sick... I mean I have to get gifts to everyone! And the shards! The shards! Trina wants them so I can get a key to open up a room - but I NEED the shards to furnish it! And she just wants more and more! And the Unique stamps NEVER drop! Where are they all? Who has them all? Do you?! You have them! Turn out your pockets! Do it!" 

While Nancy randomly accuses and attacks her fellow group therapy participants two orderlies sneak up, sedate her and carry her back to her cell. 

The doctor turns to me. "Alright Jenifer, now that you're awake, lets talk about-" 

"No!" I fold my arms to show I'm serious. 

"-let's talk about-" 

"No!" 

"-about the past events-" 

"No!" 

"-many things have happened-" "No!" "-over the last few days-" "No!" "-We have to talk about this!"

Oooooo! She is such a feisty creature and soooo bossy!  

Doesn’t she realize that I am the alpha male here; even if I am wearing a lovely tailor made white robe that to her looks like a wedding dress.  

On her it would be such a dress but on me it is a white robe (with a few adornments). 

 [Now that we have got that sorted out in our worthy saga, let us proceed]  

I will admit that she is very good at picking up stray bits and pieces that are left over from the HOS. She has managed to acquire quite an assortment of useless junk.  

I repair (what a wonderful use of the word!) to the Gnome’s Kitchen to get a spare broom and more importantly the miner’s pick, which I know will come in useful in the rescue of our dear incarcerated Randy.   

You see I have yet another “cunning plan”, which is fool proof.

Now we all know that those orderlies can move quite quickly when they have to, and especially if they want to catch moi

But never have I seen two move so fast as they do when Jenny Wren lights the dynamite.   

I stand there full of admiration for her multifarious skills.  

And then the penny drops.  

She is next to me holding two sticks of lit dynamite    and our dear leader is still trapped under his bed puffing and panting declaiming previously unknown or unheard of expletives  

I catch a brief thought passing through my head: She must have a plan!

I have persuaded my partner to return to the Confessional with the promise of an ice cream (if it hasn’t all melted yet)  

As my ice-cream smitten partner licks and slurps on an ice cream cone with disgusting bits all over it  , I try to process all the extraordinary events and sights that we have just seen.  

There is something here that is just more than “afoot”. There is mega-evil of a kind I have not seen in a long time and certainly not in our wonderful home.  even  

There is even a special word for it: TECHNOLOGY!   

Snow globes are one thing – they are fantastical and contemporary  

Picture screens showing various bits of the Castle with hieroglyphics under them are entirely from another dimension.

GRIM

In the workshop I give the password to the jeweler's assistant. In the back room is a door labeled "in case of elevators do not use fire." (You didn't think I would really say the password out loud where anyone could hear it - did you?) I've reached the compromised Cloud City tunnel. 

My phone buzzes with a text message. Cash the ferret wants to know the turn rotation if three people are playing double solitaire. I shove the phone away. 

I traverse the tunnel, looking for any tears in the local universum, or signs of actual physical construction of lairs (secret, evil or otherwise). Nothing, just a tunnel with nice stonework, lit by the occasional light bulb. Except by now I should have reached the intersection for the passage to the Dream Palace, and it isn't here. 

I pull out the phone to access its location finder. Wait, what was Cash doing in the Griffin Stall? For that matter, where am I? The coordinates don't match up to any MC location I recognize - totally off the grid. Immediately I backtrack to the jeweler's workshop, and that entrance is missing as well. Just smooth stonework, as far as I can see. Which isn't very far as the tunnel now ends abruptly. 

I'm lost in an uncharted tunnel, and I may not even be in the MC world anymore.

PTG

Well there is no way that I can catch up with Jenny Wren, when she is on a mission.  
And the fact that she also seems to be screaming (literally) mad doesn’t help either. 

Having a partner is a difficult thing but when I contemplate the meaning of the word “partner” she falls into none of the categories that I am aware of : 
Raving lunatics, bedaubed in flotsam and jetsam from the HOS scrap heap and wailing in tongues that my delicate ears have never come across before, are NOT partners.  

I sit on a nearby seat that has just floated into view (goodness me my telekinetic powers sometimes leave moi
