Hello Agents, you’re here in the shadow-mart, the Murk’s bustling black market. If the Murk is a despicable place, then the black market is Satan’s den itself. In the Shadow-Mart, you can buy anything from weapons to poisonous potions to the stolen nuclear codes that can unleash the government’s nuclear war missiles.☣️ Well, I assume you know what you need to do- BRING BACK THE CODES STAT or at least before they’re sold to the slimy tentacles of a ghoulish Murkian warlord.

I don’t think I need to spell out the dumpster-fire consequences of the codes- that-can-launch-nuclear-warheads falling into the hands of a malicious villain. 

As you well know by now, the task is simple: collect Murkcoins, dodge the Murk’s Murky Monsters and find and buy the top secret-classified briefcase that contains the government’s nuclear codes. Of course, this is the treacherous Murk, so when I say simple, you have to take that with a pinch of salt– or perhaps, a fistful of salt. Anyway, enough chit-chat– let’s move on. 

P.S. I forgot to mention the notorious Peelon Husk. He’s up to something. And I have a strong suspicion that whatever he’s doing is going to run a dagger straight through the heart of our mission.

You must find him for two reasons:

He definitely knows where the codes are. If anyone has influence over the Murkians, it’s him.

He’s a notorious man, and will do what he can to put the government in hot water. Whatever his plan may be, you must think on your feet and stop him.


Mining Murkcoins

So, what do you do to get Murkcoins, the Murk’s most popular cryptocurrency?

Well, you must join a secret Murk-wide network of Murkcoin miners…

A what?!? No, you don’t have to climb into a deep dark pit and dig away for rocks and coal. Instead, all you have to do is work to make sure the Murks ghouls aren’t stealing the stuff they stole from each other.

Now, how do you do that? Well, you must follow the truth and catch whatever smells fishy to you👃🏽😷. To put it simply, what you miners really have to do is some good old fashioned bank work.

Where’s the money?!?

So, you’re probably thinking… what about my Murkcoins. Well, you have to convince the monsters that control the Murk’s realms to give you a slice of the Murkcoin pie in exchange for your hard work. How? Even I don’t know. Head to the Murk’s bank for some answers, and remember: This is the Murk. NOTHING IN THE MURK IS FREE. NOTHING.

But wait, before you go. Here is a guide that will help you skilfully detect the fraudulent fraudsters that want to cheat

If there’s one thing that you must know about the Murkians, it’s that they’re untrustworthy. In fact, they themselves are aware of their cunning propensity for thievery. So, what did they do? They created a system of money that was monitored by computers instead of them. But of course, one must run the computers and the Murkians manage to make the truth Murky by doing just that.

In the Murk, your biggest superpower is your ability to be honest. You must sift through the log of transactions that you see and find the stinking mobsters that are busy lying to their mobster buddies. There’s more to it, but you’ll learn as you go on. Just remember: The words on these pages are as valuable as the Murkcoins that you wish to earn.

Alright then, godspeed! Use this portal to travel through the Murk’s mining hubs and blend in with the local Murk-coin miners. I’ve got you access to realm one, but you’re on your own from here. Make yourself a part of the Murk’s mining network to travel swiftly across realms, and complete your mission. Again, time is of the essence.

May the odds be in your favour.

Hint: When you head to the next realm, you must prove that you possess Murkcoins, or else you will not be allowed in. How do you do that? Enter the Murkcoin code that you receive after the final task of the previous realm.
