Jonathan invented a time travel device. He
went way back in time…to the Middle Ages. After the first teleport his device fizzed,
popped…and was basically totally busted. Jonathan decided to become a knight He used his 2020 knowledge and everyone thought he was a genius! Soon a powerful king hired him, and gave him the
most difficult missions. Jonathan had to get rid of a water dragon.
The dragon was a big problem for the people in the kingdom…you never meet a friendly
dragon… The dragon lived in a cave, typical. To get into the cave, Jonathan had to choose
the right door. Behind the first door was a hungry boa constrictor, that could squeeze
a human into mush. Behind the second door were hundreds of poisonous spiders that could
kill a man with a single bite. Behind the third door was poisonous gas. Which door should
he choose? Answer: The third door is not an option, there’s
nothing to protect him against toxic gas. The second door is pretty bad too. The spiders
can crawl in the slits in his armor. The knight chose the first door. His steel plate armor
should protect him from the boa. Steel holds its shape under pressure. Jonathan got in
the cave and… well let’s just say the dragon won’t be a problem anymore. After that he returned to the kingdom. The
King was glad that his best knight had completed the task. Unfortunately, while Jonathan was
away, an evil sorcerer kidnapped the king’s daughter. She was trapped in a tower. The
king asked the knight to return his daughter…man, this guy doesn’t get a lot of time off! Jonathan agreed, but he needed a map first.
One of his friends had the perfect map. His friend said he would help him if Jonathan
could solve a riddle. Jonathan had to get a coin out of a bottle. The conditions were
the following: He couldn’t pull out the cork or break the bottle. Jonathan managed
to do it…how? Answer: Jonathan pushed the cork into the
bottle and took the coin out. The knight got the map and went to look for the princess.
According to the map, Jonathan had to cross a volcanic island, where on earth is he? Jonathan was on the volcanic island when he
heard a huge rumble. Yup! You guessed it. Eruption! Jonathan ran, but there was a high
cliff in his way with a river, like 100 m below it. He saw three bridges in front of
him. First rope bridge: 2 ropes for arms and one rope for legs. It was on fire because
of the liquid hot magma. The second bridge was wooden but there was a huge bear on it.
The third bridge was made of stone, but it had been damaged by the volcano. It might
collapse at any moment. Jonathan managed to cross the cliff. Why is there never just a normal bridge? What bridge did he choose?… Answer: He chose the first bridge. Not all
the ropes were burnt, so Jonathan managed to ninja it over the cliff. He made it! That
was intense! Ok, no time to waste! According to the map, there should be a tunnel up ahead. There was a small house near the tunnel entrance.
Jonathan decided to find out who lived there, like he needs more problems, am I right? There
was a witch in the house. She was making a potion. The knight decided to take her hostage.
Jonathan had no idea what was in the tunnel, he might need a witch’s skills. There were
3 traps at the entrance: — Sharp swords sticking out of the walls.
— A den of crocodiles. — A huge fire.
The Witch: “I want to go home. I want to finish my potion, I was busy working
when you kidnapped me! So rude! Please, let me go!”
Jonathan: “Okay, but help me first.” The witch: “Ok, whatever, pretty boy. I can
make you fly. I can turn you into a ghost. I can make you smaller.” He could use a
different spell for each trap. What spells should he use…and for which traps? Answer: He can shrink down
in size and pass through no problem. He can fly over them. Ghosts can pass through fire without getting burnt, hmm, I didn’t know that!
Jonathan passed all three traps and let the witch go. The witch returned home to brew
her potion and the knight continued his journey. Jonathan had been walking for 3 days and finally
reached the tower. It was really dark and cloudy…super spooky! He came up to the castle.
3 roads appeared in front of him, leading to the gate. The first was a canal of water
with piranhas in it. He was pretty sure there were also the remains of some unlucky knights
floating around in there…gross! The second was covered with flames. That’s obviously
bad, plus he already freed the witch, so she can’t help him. The third was covered with
the spikes of a poisonous plant, and Jonathan didn’t have the antidote…man, he really
shouldn’t have let that witch go! Which way should he choose? Answer: The second one. It was dark and cloudy,
remember? So he could just wait for some rain to put
out the flames. Jonathan entered the castle and set the princess free. She was so happy
to see her knight, it was like sooo boring in that tower! Time to head back to the kingdom! The evil sorcerer sensed that a knight was
going to take his princess away. No way! That was his prisoner! When Jonathan and the princess
went downstairs they came upon three doors. Jonathan opened every door. But he couldn’t
see anything! There was an inscription on the wall: There is no air behind one of the
doors. All who enter will suffocate. Behind another door is a poisonous gas that turns
everything into stone. Only behind one of these doors is your salvation.
Which door should they choose? Answer: Take the torch from the wall and toss
it through the doorway. If the torch turns to stone…. Don’t go in. If the flame goes
out, there’s no air…also don’t go in. Two torches for two tries. Not so bad after
all! Jonathan and the princess got out of the tower. The sorcerer was waiting for them!
Jonathan was ready to get home and have some time off, so he went off on the sorcerer and
kicked his…sorry, got carried away! When the knight brought the princess home,
the king asked if they wanted to get married. They did! Everyone was happy!
Jonathan decided not to go back to the future and stay in the kingdom…plus his time machine
was busted anyway. How would you feel about living just one day
in the middle ages?
