The six dark heads turned simultaneously and twelve glowing green eyes glowered at the diminutive form.  “Where...did that come from?” the voices echoed.

 

Orin frowned.  What did they mean?  His own gaze trained on the jocund helper.  If he was not their creature, then...

 

Something was attempting to surface in his memory.  Something he had seen as a child...a television show...with children trying to solve puzzles...and a rainbow...

 

After conferring with his capable team, Captain Wraith stepped forward confidently.  “Time for this charade to cease.  We know who you are...we know which you are...Witch.”

 

“Green is the color of will and energy,” one agent recited, stepping up behind the captain.

 

“These clones are created of energy, channeled by will,” said another.

 

“The real Witch is the the one who controls the chaos...” a third agent chimed in.  Then, all said turned in conjunction to one of the figures and spoke in chorus, “...you.”

 

The Chromatic Witch smiled and waved his green gloved hand and the other five figures vanished.  “Not bad...I can see this version has significant improvements...” he shrugged.  “But still...just because you can find me doesn’t mean you can defeat me.”

 

He swept up his arms to the sides, palms upward, and abruptly their surroundings vanished and all around them was a screen of green.

 

The Witch clapped his hands together and their surroundings turned into a desert canyon.  There was a rumbling, and rocks began to precipitate from the jagged cliffs.

 

The agents scrambled, dodging the barrage of boulders.  Their enemy laughed and clapped his hands again.

 

The dust and debris disappeared, to be replaced by darkness, mud, and roaring rain.  Suddenly there was lightning, closely followed by thunder, and then the rain turned to sleet that pelted the freezing agents.

 

“You cannot win,” the Witch declared.  “This is my gateway.  Everything is as I will it to be.”

 

“Not...everything,” spoke Orin slowly through shivering teeth as it came to him. Along A Rainbow, the show had been called, and there had been a helper, a guide to the children...Hucky the Hinter...  

 

The Chromatic Witch stopped and studied him.  Orin clenched his hands into fists, fighting the cold.

 

“The leprechaun...it...it came from me, from my imagination...from my will.”  A fire ignited in Orin’s eyes.  “If green is the power of will, then...then we use it too!”

The Witch’s lips pursed pensively, then curved into a bemused smile.  He clapped his hands once more and the surroundings turned back to green.  “Let’s see about that...”

BOSS BATTLE GREEN

Kyle Rayner, Green Lantern

 
 

 

 

Rules:


Agents, you must channel the energy of your will to form objects to complete the obstacles that are set before you.


Each player may only maintain one object at a time.  Objects that commonly come as a set count as one object only if it is utilized as a set (i.e. you cannot use part of a set of colored pencils to draw a diagram and another part to use as kindling).


Objects must be less than 100m in all dimensions, in the state they are used in (i.e. a 300m coil of rope might be less than 100m in all dimensions, but if you use it when it’s fully stretched out, it counts as 300m).


Objects formed must be easily describable with a word or two (i.e. no conjuring complex contraptions constructed to complete the particular task).


You may not create intelligent beings (scientists, superheroes, aliens, etc).  You may create animate objects, but you cannot direct, or ‘program’ them.  (No animals trained to accomplish your particular task, no programmed robots, etc).  However, creatures will be assumed to react to stimuli in the appropriate fashion (a dog will run after/to a steak).


No motorized vehicles (including air, sea, etc).  Your interactions with objects are limited to what any average person can do (no specialized training).


There is no one right answer here, tasks will be deemed completed as long as they follow the rules and the spirit of the game (i.e. trying to exploit loopholes in the rules is not acceptable, but combining and using objects in creative and unexpected ways is great ^_^).


Last but not least, this is a team effort, feel free to discuss and coordinate with your teammates.  And have fun!

 

 

*****************************************************************************************************************************

 

Feels good to be back in the puzzle-pushing saddle ^_^

 

(Note:  If you've ever played Scribblenauts, it's a similar setup ;))

 

The last puzzle was not completely solved, and there are some hints in the post to allow players to work on finishing it up while I finish constructing the Boss Battle scenarios.  Also feel free to ask questions.

 

Good luck!

**************************************************************************************************************************

Supplementary rules:  

 

The laws of physics/chemistry/etc. must be obeyed.

 

Objects that are not known to be physically viable (i.e. hoverboards, jet packs, etc) are not allowed.

 

Levels must be passed in a reasonable amount of time (in terms of the game).

 

Please put the objects in green, and if using an object in conjunction with an object(s) from another player or players, please quote or copy and paste and cite the player(s).

 

**************************************************************************************************************************

 

 

Orin furrowed his brows in deep focus.  In his hand a small ball of green energy appeared, and then began to grow and elongate until it achieved the form of a spear.  He drew his arm back and prepared to launch the missive.

 

"Not so fast." The Green Witch raised a hand and a sudden burst of translucent green energy flooded towards the agents.  As it approached, rolling like a wave, it turned opaque, with globules of different colors interspersed throughout.  It gained momentum, coming upon the agents like a tsunami.

 

The agents closed their eyes, but there was no impact, but instead a sing-song voice quietly chanted:  "...went up the hill to fetch a pail of water..." The agents opened their eyes saw the world had been painted around them:

Giant  Motor  was found!

Aaryan put the Giant Motor into the KEY pocket.

 

A simple motor; anyone is capable of building, but on a magnificent scale of 100m. 

So that we can work it like a blender, and soften up the ice to make it snow. Probably make it easier to traverse. If this is too mechanical, I wish up a giant blender blade and hope that others put together the motor part (e.g electromagnet, coil of wire, etc.)

Facing the freezing winds, one agent bravely summoned up a pair of pickaxes and scaled the icy mountain side alone.

 

Another, who had been considering his course of action, summoned up a giant motor to soften up the ice into snow so that the entire team could make it up the hill.  They would be needing the team for the next tasks, he knew that much.  But the slope was steep, and he, being a man, not a super-man, could not push the motor up the hill by himself.  He needed something else.  He needed help from his fellow agents.
