Manatees and Halloween Things!

There are only a few days left to submit your pumpkin carving design! I wanted to share another fun design that was entered recently to our Facebook page:


Do you recognize Paseo Del Mar High’s manatee mascot from Secrets Can Kill? This was carved by Taylor and Brittany M.

I wonder if anyone has thought to design a ghost carving from the 13 ghosts in Curse of Blackmoor Manor? I think that would be awesome as well!


Side note: If you want to get into the Halloween mood this week, I recommend checking out the 70s TV series of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. There are two back-to back episodes on YouTube called The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula: Part 1 and Part 2.

As for the weekend puzzle: the image was of ancient runes as seen in Curse of Blackmoor Manor. I did make one substitution since in the game there was no rune for the letter “C.” So I used the “K” instead. The translated answer is [mutascope].

    Hi LJ,

    I was wondering what book LIE is based on. Do you mind telling me?

      We began with The Greek Symbol Mystery… only for the location, really. The story and mystery are original from our design team. 🙂

    Can you explain where a mutascope was found in a ND game?

    What is a mutascope? Will it be appearing in SEA?

    Hey guys!
    A mutascope is:”a high-sensitivity variant caller dedicated to high-throughput PCR amplicons sequencing”.

    However, a mutoscope is: ” an early motion picture device, patented by Herman Casler on November 21, 1894. Like Thomas Edison’s Kinetoscope it did not project on a screen, and provided viewing to only one person at a time.”

    I’m an avid filmmaker, so I’m kinda hoping it’s the latter… especially since I have no idea what the first definition means… 🙂 ‘
