To His Imperial Majesty,
As you already know from previous messages, the first volcano wasn't the right one. I am thus headed to Syracusae. The more I travel to the south, the more Roman settlements I encounter. The roads are perfect: Romans' impressive construction ability allows them to develop villages really fast. The region is just being settled and the villages are still small.
The volcano is surrounded by thick forests and huge mountains; it would have been really difficult to get there without my trusty companion. On several occasions, he found my path through dense forest that seemed impenetrable. The way was long and I felt exhausted. Finally, I climbed up the last mountain only to find the last obstacle that I had to overcome. Yes, the first craftsman definitely stayed here for a while. That maze could only have been created by him!
The sign at the maze was written in our old alphabet and contained some information:
- The maze is full of death traps, but there is a safe path through it. The attentive stranger will notice that some of the slabs that make up the floor of this maze contain images of lumber, clay, and iron.
- You must go proceed in the right order (lumber, clay, iron, lumber, clay, iron, and so on).
- To reach the exit safely, you need to step on those images 17 times.
- Some slabs you'll have to step on twice. However, you can't jump over any of the images or turn back. Once you have stepped on a slab with an image, you can only go forward.
Task: Find the path // This adventure will close on Monday the 24th
