Part 10: There's Something Strange

There's Something Strange

It's another day in Khatmandu! There are things to be collected, and perhaps even used. Let us explore once again!

Maybe the garlic will get rid of those bats in the mine. Assuming they're vampire bats of course.

It's simple. Kill the bats.
Good thinking, Kifman.

There were only three bats? I swear, it felt like there were more. Still, we can finally get that item! What is it anyway?

It's a Ghost Hunters Laser!
Good job that gate wasn't protected by a gatemaster.
Why's that?
...I don't know. I think I was attempting a movie reference. It didn't really work. ...Let's just move on.

Anyway, maybe the hard hat will get us past the waterfall?

Despite work safety warnings, I think we'd still end up with a putrid puddle of yolk beneath a rather fashionable hat.
I could just freeze the waterfall, though.
Yeah, b-- wait. What?
You know. With the can of dry ice.
That'd just block the path!
No, I could just step around the frozen torrent of water.
... Perspective, you have defied me again!

Is that some sort of a chain next to the river? Can you cut it with the bolt cutters? Seems like a pointless thing to do, but I can't think of any other use for them.

It's a chain, but it isn't connected to anything. I'll show you so it's a little clearer.

But, it wasn't even connected...
I'm certain it wasn't...

I couldn't even stand on that platform properly...
There is only one explanation. This raft is not of this world! Well, we've got the wig now anyway. Plus, a scroll: "There's a one-eyed yellow idol to the North of Khatmandu". Odd, I thought that was to the East, but we've already dealt with that anyway. Now all we need to do is freeze the lake, and...
Do you even listen to yourself? I can go past the waterfall now!
But, but, the lake! How else are we going to get past the lake?
Well, there's no other way past the waterfall! There's only enough ice for one direction, or didn't you realise that before?
No, I realised it, really! I still think we should venture into the Kingdom of the Mountains!
You would. I'm calling the underground mines beyond the waterfall. We've already gotten the wig from the mountains, but we haven't found anything past the waterfall yet.
I guess that ties the votes at 1/1 so far... so I guess that means...

...It's over to you guys!

We now have access to:
- Free Acme Bird Seed (For any birds we may come across!)
- A Plastic Raincoat (For any rain we may come across!)
- Can of Insecticide (For any spiders we may come across!)
- A Clove of Garlic (For any bats we may come across!)
- Empty Potion Bottle
- A Bottle of Dry Ice (To freeze water - good for one use only!)
- A Miners Hard Hat
- Ghost Hunter's Laser
- A Leprechaun's Wig

Any suggestions or ideas on how to progress? Do tell!
