WALKTHROUGH - Constellation 9 - The Thief

Look who's at the Archives! It's the Lenny Conundrum Lenny!

Lets see what he has to say.

A familiar-looking Lenny beckons you over to the side of the lobby. Hey!
It's that Lenny from the Lenny Conundrum!

"Hey, you! Listen, you know Finneus, the archivist, right? I heard him
say you've been helping him with some kind of... history puzzle, or
something. I don't know, but anyway. Finneus is my uncle, and I want to
give him a special surprise for his birthday, which is coming up soon. It's
the fourteenth day after the square root of the number of Grundos you find
in the--er, sorry, nevermind. Force of habit. Anyway, look, here's what I
want to do: He's got this favourite Meepit plushie of his, yeah? And I want
to decorate it all nice for his birthday."

He grumps. "But I want it to be a surprise! He's always in that office of
his, so I can't get ahold of it. If I hang around until he turns his back,
he'll get suspicious. But since you're always in there, you could get it
without him noticing. So, can you help me?"

Ooh, a birthday present! Go back to the Archivists office and steal that Meepit plushie!

You need to distract him. Click the vase behind him, maybe that will do the trick.

Looks like it worked! Quick, grab the Meepit plushie!

You throw a pebble at the vase. The archivist spins around at the sound of
something plinking against the vase. "What? What was that? Did you hear something?"

After you click the plushie:

The archivist shrugs and turns back around. "Oh well. I'm just hearing things
as I get old, I suppose. Say, I wonder where I put that Meepit plushie..."

Got it... take it back to the Lenny Conundrum Lenny so he can make it prettyful *_*

"Great, you got the plushie! I--" He looks at it, startled. "Wait
a second, this isn't his favourite Meepit plushie. That one has, uh, um...
well..." He scratches his head. "It's a little different, it's got a... a
thingy... Look, I'll know it when I see it. You've got to go and get his
favourite plushie. Hurry! His birthday is only 94 times the number of
bolts on the Virtupets Space Station seconds away!"

Oh no! We got the wrong plushie! Go back to the Archivist's office to see what's going on here.

The archivist smiles as you enter. "Well, I had to dip into my stash of
extra Meepit plushies to replace the one I lost. Good thing I buy them in bulk!"

Doh! He's got replacements! You've got to find them... head back to the archives and click on the other doors handel.

When you enter into the room, you will see a door at the top, and right of the screen (higlighted in red), and a smaller door next to the top door (highlighted in blue).

Try to click the small door. If you can't click either the top or right door, and try to click the small door again. Keep navigating from room to room trying to click the smaller door, it shouldn't take you too long until you see this (usually it's right 2 and up 1, or right 1 and up 2):

How interesting... a box of Meepit plushies. This must be where the
Archivist keeps getting his replacements!

You found the stash! Click the 'Hide the box' button.

You hide the box of Meepit plushies in another closet. Now
the Archivist will never find them!

Return to the Archivist, you've got another plushie to steal.

The archivist frowns as you enter. "Hm, I seem to have misplaced my box
of replacement Meepit plushies. I only have one other one... my favourite."
He pulls a battered old Meepit plushie from a locked cabinet, and sniffles
as he examines it. "This little guy was the first Meepit plushie I ever bought!"

So, he's got his favorite Meepit plushie out, time to snatch it. Click the vase to distract him.

Quick! Grab the Meepit plushie!

You throw a pebble at the vase. The archivist spins around at the sound of
something plinking against the vase. "What? What's was that? Did you hear something?"

After you've got his favorite Meepit plushie:

The archivist shrugs and turns back around. "Oh well. I'm just hearing things
as I get old, I suppose. Oh no! My favorite Meepit plushie is gone!" He sobs, dismayed.

Take the plushie to the Lenny Conundrum Lenny.

"Excellent!" he cheers as you bring him Finneus's favourite Meepit plushie.
"This is the real one. Now, let me just put this ribbon on it--" RRRRIP! "Uh oh.

Uh oh? What's this guy Uh-ohing for? Click '"Uh oh"?'

"Oh no! I tore the Meepit's head off! Woe!" He looks down at the headless
Meepit plushie. "I--hey, what's this?" He reaches into the plushie and pulls
out an old, dull, rusted dagger that was hidden inside the plushie. "Huh, some
kind of dagger stored inside the plushie. How weird. Oh well. I guess you better
give this plushie back to Finneus. I hope he's not mad at me!"

Click on the dagger sticking out of the Meepit's head.

There's an odd pattern of marks on the dagger the Lenny is examining.

A pattern in the Meepit Plushie! Extraordinary! Let's see what Finneus makes of this.

The archivist sniffles as you enter. "Oh, my poor Meepit plushie!
My absolute favorite! But at least my nephew meant well when he destroyed
it by accident. And of course, it led to finding a clue! How fortuitous!
Well, you best be off to the observatory while I mourn my poor Meepit plushie."

Time to find the constellation. Head up to your telescope!

Click here to go to the SunnyNeo Star Mapper

Find the pattern you saw on the dagger. It will look like this:

When you've got it, click submit! Congratulations! You've just found your 9th constellation: The Thief!

Check in with your usual characters:

The janitor hurls a book of Lenny Conundrums to the floor

The Astronomy Club members greet you warmly as you enter the
room... except the club president, who grabs a protractor and
threatens you with it every time you come near him.

The other club members give you overly casual nods. The Wocky
sidles up and whispers, "Don't worry, we'll be making our move soon.
In the meantime, hang onto this. And don't ask where I got it."

The Astronomy Club

The Wocky explains, "Let's just say it might come in handy later
on. Or it might not." She winks and wanders away.

The archivist says, "Naturally, Kelland, the Thief, would
have his constellation found on a dagger. Indeed."

He lets out a sigh. "This would seem to remove Kelland from the
list of suspects. It would have made the most sense, 'twere it him,
but alas. I still cannot accept that Fauna, Jerdana, or even Altador
himself could be responsible for this!" He blinks. "Unless... wait a
moment... something is stirring in my memory..." He glances up at the
ceiling for a moment, as if peering into the distance. "Ah HA!" he
shouts. "Yes, I think I know where to look. This search may bear no
fruit, but I must try. I will have to go into the archives for a while.
But continue your search; there are only three constellations left to
find, and we may not have much time left."

As with the last constellation, a few other things have been updated. If you click on the statue of Kelland, then click on the tippy top of the picture, you will see the gems above his head are lit up!

Also the Book of Ages has a new Chapter!
