questOctopusNotes @Urse, a wild-eyed young scribe, has asked for your help exploring a mysterious cave by the sea shore. Among the twilight tidepools stands a massive gate of stalactites and stalagmites. As you near the gate, a dark whirlpool begins to spin at its base.

questRoosterNotes For years the farmer @extrajordanary has used Roosters as an alarm clock. But now a giant Rooster has appeared, crowing louder than any before – and waking up everyone in Habitica!

When I went into the farmhouse this morning, the Rooster had pushed these against the door where you slept. I think he wants you to have them.” You uncover the basket to see three delicate eggs.
