this is our third quest and it was just as amazing. two commemts 1) there is a glitch with the first answer. even when you write rose or roses it says it is wrong 2) the clue for IOOF is super hard. you realize IOOF is what you are looking for, but you cant figure out what the clue actually decodes.

I avsolutely enjoyed this quest, I was able to feel the charm of the historical gaslmap quarter and look at it differently. You don’t pay attention to those things as you get wrapped up in your everyday life and what you usually notice is only bars and clubs. This quest was very educational for me and the lovely romantic story that was narrated throughout the quest made it more exciting.
