Well, it did imply she'd already had some training:

You've been fumbling and falling all day. All those tall tales about the Warden’s daughter being a warrior prodigy but if it weren't for me; you'd still be in Sakhmet. I think I, at least, deserve a good story out of all this.


I think it was supposed to imply that she only couldn't climb the wall because of the heavy scimitar, and just because she's trained as a soldier, that doesn't necessarily mean she'd be trained to navigate the desert - especially if she had an inclination to run away.

However, the soldiers' armor would be selected to allow them to navigate sand! And how did her father navigate the sand to get to the riverbank? And why didn't she keep moving after she reached the bank instead of just watching him? Very clunky writing.

Another update today. Chapter 8: The Faceoff

No battling yet.

Wow. Seriously? This went dark. Is she still a minor? Way to normalize child abuse, TNT... :x

Update:
Chapter 9: The Big Leap of Faith


.....and she escapes on a boat!! Still nothing to do, although the last line in the comic says:
Follow me, I need you to help me manoeuver the boat.



That does sound like an activity is coming.

Wow, a semi-coherent update (except for the part where the captain goes from "oh noes, I must obey people in authority" to "oh, that's the authority figure of the local place? well then let me defy him!" in two seconds).

And I really hope we do get to maneuver the boat - as long as it's not like those obnoxious split-second-timing rings of doom from the last plot!

New update on page 13, link to a new game, and 3 new achievements.

Re: Lost Desert Event (Lyra and the Lost Heirloom)

Whew. Got all three on the same run (though the pop ups for them almost killed me on one of them.)

Achievements:
Score 400 (pass 400 obstacles - the score in yellow in the top middle of the screen)
Collect 4 bubbles (supposedly as long as you've gotten 4 at some point, it counts, but it won't pop up a notification if you don't have 4 actually at the same time?)
Survive for 5 minutes


Tips:
If you're playing on a computer, use the left and right arrow keys.
Focus on surviving, not on collecting coins - they don't appear to do anything.
Alternate between the middle and one of the sides - totally ignore the other.
Keep your eyes on the top of the screen to watch for the obstacles.

Using the above, I got all three achievements on my first run, though it was well over 5 minutes before I passed the needed 400 obstacles.

Thanks for the tips, P. Got all the achievements, though not on my first game.

Yes, Thanks P! I am not so good at this particular game. Perhaps I was just too tired last night. I will give it another go sometime this weekend.

Do we know how to get the "Keeping Up with the Xendriks" achievement yet?

Re: Lost Desert Event (Lyra and the Lost Heirloom)

Thu Feb 28, 2019 4:50 pm

Final page and chapter available.

Keeping Up with the Xendriks available after reading page 14.

I'm so confused. What the heck did I just read? And that's the end?! I would go back and read the whole thing from start to finish to try to make sense of it if it weren't so poorly written. That was... Just... If that's it, it's now 100% the worst plot ever and definitely getting my neopies vote for "never speak of this again." Ugh.

Re: Lost Desert Event (Lyra and the Lost Heirloom)

LOL. I hear what you are saying Siniri!! I can't even put it into words how disappointing the ending was.

TNT updated the Keeping Up with the Xendriks achievement to include how it is obtained:

Read any 10 chapter updates on the day of release. (You have read XX chapter updates on the day of release)

I got 14.

Re: Lost Desert Event (Lyra and the Lost Heirloom)

Fri Mar 01, 2019 4:20 pm

I apparently only read 12 on day of release, but got the achievement. I still feel like the plot didn't really end? I mean, it doesn't really explain anything?

Re: Lost Desert Event (Lyra and the Lost Heirloom)

Fri Mar 01, 2019 5:49 pm

It was just... I've seriously read a plot that made more sense written by a first grader. And I'm not even exaggerating AT ALL!

And plots have things for people to do, more than a couple of random annoying badly designed games. Ugh.

Re: Lost Desert Event (Lyra and the Lost Heirloom)

The plot has ended. The prize shop will be open for purchases early next week.

...I guess it's over.

I'm still sitting here thinking, huh, what?
