Time: Uncertain, most likely afternoon
I’m stranded! Help! I’m in a strange alien world. Strange floating creatures surround me. They show no harm. Everything glows! Colors of neon green, bright blue, pearly white and infra red surround me. I wonder how I will sleep. The animals here have adapted well. They look like the plants they live in.
I’ve decided to call this place Luminaria. I’ll keep a record of the plants and animals here. I don’t think I’d like to move. Who knows what dangerous creatures lurk there! Tundra, my universal travel device I used to get here is all broken up. Well, here’s my first report!
The Triple Banded Foamer:
This creature camoflauges with the Dark Striped Fern. Its main prey are the Floaters. It uses its thick saliva to bring them closer; then the Floaters get stuck in the foamy mess. It also eats the Horned Fuzz Flies.

It’s really boring here. I’m starved! I hate eating the Dark Striped Fern. I can only eat the Dark Striped Fern, the Green and Purple Branch Vines and the leaves of the Feathered Lamp Tree. Yawn!
Rainbow Vine Eel:
This creature resembles an eel and is quite like one out of the water. Its color is grey, but it can change to any color. It mostly eats the small Curved Leaf Flies. Another food it eats is the Violet Diamond that form on Vine Rocks. It makes its home in dense clusters of Branch Vines.
What should I do!? Oh no! It sounds closer. HELP!!! Save me! Let me explain while I can. I’m hearing whirring sounds. I’ve been living in the forest back on Earth long enough to recognize that sound: a Maximus Chainsaw 3000. They were cutting down Luminaria! I have to think of a way to stop them! They are here! Wait is that a ROBOT? From Earth?! I’m gonna take these animals with me. Too bad I can’t save the plants. I’ll use a recorder to keep track of what’s going on.
Robot: Who are you?
Me: Uh, um my name-
Robot: Who allowed you to speak?! I’ll take you to Boss. Gimme your bag!
Me: No! Why are you cutting down all these trees?!
Robot: Ha! You commoners wouldn’t know. You stole the Tundra, right? That’s how you came here…
Me: You still haven’t answered me!
Robot: Obviosly, we were sent by the Boss to make a new city! The greatest! Yes, the best city of all cities! The most amazing!!!
Me: (sneak away while he is talking)
Robot: And guess what? Hey, wait up! HEY! COOOME BAAAAAACK!!!!
Time: Late night
Tonight I finally have found shelter! But I have to admit, I’m pretty scared. The Horned Fluff Flies I have brought, the two of them, are like my pets. Too bad I couldn’t rescue anymore creatures…
The end of part one in the case:Luminaria
File: mysteries unsolved cases one through three
Knock knock knock! “Who is it?” I asked. “It’s me! Let me in Tara!” A familiar voice called. “Come in, Mr. Tomas.” I quickly arranged my messy desk and picked up the case file. The door opened and a tall, thin man stepped in. “Have you finished the file?” He asked. I shuffled nervously and nodded. “We hired you to investigate for a reason, you know. Be ready,” he said leaning in closely. “You’ll get the Traveler tomorrow, twelve a.m. sharp. You wrote your notes, right?” He whispered. I nodded and reviewed my To Do List: Re-read the case notes. Then, go to the Maddison Library with the suitcase. Retrieve the Traveler and go to Luminaria. Save the forest and if possible, save the runaway thief.
