Which box? There is a virtual game box that everyone has access to, over at the ABC Family site: http://abcfamily.go.com/shows/nine-lives-chloe-king/nine-paths-box As for the jewelry box and game box that were sent to me in the mail, those were distributed at ABC Family's discretion, to a number of bloggers and journalists.
The Nine Paths to Chloe King: The Third Path
The Third Path of the Nine Paths to Chloe King game is now open! To play, head over to the ABC Family game site. Then come back here for some additional details and help. I received a package in the mail this morning to start things off, containing a Bastet charm and a cryptic note written in Mai (pictured to the left). First an iPad and now jewelry? I am feeling extremely spoiled. I don’t see how any other promotional campaign will ever live up to this one. Anyway, back to more substantive matters, namely the secret message. On the back of the note, I was instructed to use the Book of Mai to translate the message. I totally felt like Veronica Mars. (Yes, I’m having way too much fun with this game.) While playing along at home, you will also be asked to translate the message for the Third Path. Use the Book of Mai in the virtual game box, specifically the section on the Mai alphabet, in order to translate the message from Mai to English. (The book icon opens up a PDF.) Then follow the rest of the instructions to finish the path. I don’t want to spoil it for you though, so go ahead and try it yourself first.
Okay, so have you completed the path now? Yes? Well, then the message should be translated as the following: “The Uniter is Chloe King.” After figuring this out, and entering in the password on the ABC game site, you received a reward for your troubles: a new scroll! But the one you unlocked had some sections blacked out. Here’s the full version, to help you along your way:
Oooh, more Mai backstory! The little history tidbits are so much fun. We already knew about some Ukrainian and Egyptian background, but now we have learned that the Mai were involved in the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, and the Salem Witch Trials. Also, we now know that the people hunting the Mai are the Order of Man, and they do not sound like the best of people. A bit too extreme, if you ask me. Also, the Mai themselves are divided into two factions: those who welcome The Uniter vs. the Bad Mai. Hmmm. On which side will Chloe land? Will she be able to overcome the resistance to unite the Mai and humans once again? The plot thickens.
