MCME
Easter Egg Hunt 2018
Yes, it is that time of year again. Time for the most frustrating event of the year! For those of you who haven't taken part in this event before, you need to find some eggs located on the MCME server - it's that simple.

The event will start on Good Friday, which is this
Friday, 30th March at 1pm BST (Time Converter). The eggs will be pasted onto the map just before this time so you can start hunting straight away. The eggs will stay on the map for 2 weeks.

Here are some things explained, rules and, information about the event. Important information is marked in bold.


    • The eggs are placed within the MCME Network and on a location which is accessible to any Adventurer+ throughout the time of the event.
    • To unravel the hints you will need to use certain services from within the MCME Network as well as outside it, i.e. Google searches.
    • The eggs are coming in any color and some vary in appearance, but the standard eggs are 8 blocks tall and 5 wide.
    • The hint for the next egg is found on signs on the previous egg.
    • Each egg also contains a sign with a name (not just character names) connected to J.R.R. Tolkien, but with the letters scrambled up.
    • To win you need to message me the unscrambled names from the eggs in the right order through the Forums or Discord.
    • There are 14 correct eggs.
    • There are an additional 14 wrong eggs, which look just like correct eggs, just with other scrambled names on it. For each hint there's only one correct egg and 0 - 2 wrong eggs.
    • Out-of-the-box thinking is vital.
    • Teaming up is encouraged.
    • I will be reluctant to give out hints, in order to keep things fair.
    • I hold the right to disqualify players I help specifically or if they have an unfair advantage.
Here is your first clue:

[INFORMATION]
“Glimmering like a spike of pearl and silver, tall and fair and shapely, and its pinnacle glittered as if it were wrought of egg.”

Let's see if I happen to stumble uppon 33% of all of the correct eggs by accident without partaking in the hunt like I happened to do last year.

I will be going on holiday tomorrow so I will not be able to answer anything until I arrive there. If you want your current answers checked before I leave, please send them to me on the forums or Discord within the next few hours.

I have pasted a 'super egg' at some place on the main map. If you can find it and send me a screenshot, you automatically win the egg hunt. There is no clue for this egg, you just need to search for it. Good luck!

Does it require the use of gm3 or is it still all-ranks friendly?

Congratulations @BWOT on being disqualified for making your own 'super' egg.


For everyone else that has attempted to find the 'super' egg, you have successfully wasted your time to find an egg that doesn't eggsist. April Fools!

I have also found a fake egg that somebody had created in Moria. Creating these fake fake eggs will not mess up the competition because if someone sends me a result from one, then I can remove the egg.

So making fake eggs is allowed? ;)
