Forgive me if I have to do a little victory dance here. I've mentioned before how awful I am at hunts and quests but having gotten a tour of The Search for the Sy I felt compelled to go back and attempt to carry it through.
It turns out that even with detailed instructions it takes me a long time to recalibrate a teleporter. And there are things I should have tried much sooner - it would have saved me some hair pulling. But I actually managed to do it!!!!! And here's a photo of my trophy as proof. :)
As the saying goes - if I can do this anybody can. You really really need to give it a shot before it ends in February. You'll feel an enormous sense of satisfaction and it's a lot of fun.
