As soon as he was there, he realized that he must surely exist in this place, for he could feel and he could see. And yet he wasn't sure of this. It had been so long since he had been able to notice things like these. However, he tried to see past the purple and put both his hands on the mushed mass of meat that had once served as his face.

"If I had known I'd be damned to this horrible figure, I might not have used the hammer on my face..."- the pandaren sighed.

It had been almost a year since he had passed on to the spirit realm, or so he thought this was what the purple place was. A humid and hot purple vapour lay above the same-coloured ground, preventing the Sentry from seeing further than his own body , and even that was hazy.

Suddenly a bright white light blinded him and he heard the crying of a familiar voice. When his eyes grew used to the light, he was back where he always was and it was purple once more.

Yet someone stood before him. It was a beautiful woman and where she stood, the purple gave way to green and the haze seemed to dissipate and give way to a shining aura.

"Greetings my child, I am Freyjia." -she said. "I have been searching for you for a long time, as you never came to the gates of Fólkvangr or for that case, the Valhalla"

"Your Grace, your name was not familiar but any mortal who would set eyes upon your magnificence would be able to tell at first glance that you are a great Lady and with inmense power, seeing as you have broken your way into this... this spirit realm." -andrekeroxd replied.

“And yet, warrior, my vision regarding this place has been clouded by some power. Someone has attempted to cheat a fallen warrior from Odin and myself. For I know that this cannot be only your doing. This blasphemer shall be found and put an end to. And as it so happens, it is your destiny to aid Cryptite on the doing of said task.” – Freyjia said gravely. “However, you are not yet strong enough or will be with the passing of time, and much less if your consciousness is being held hostage in this place.”

“For you, your Grace, I would wage a thousand wars and rot for as much time as you would have me in this… trap” –andrekeroxd declared.

“However, you would not be of much use to me or your realm stuck in this limbo, would you? No adventurer, I would bid you, who was once known as the traveler, to aid Cryptite in the finding of the ones who are guilty of such treachery against the gods. You must help him and your fellow travelers fortify themselves.” –the Goddess said to him. She continued: “Your companions wage war between themselves and each world they visit is flooded in their blood. As a wise one of your kind once said: “We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

“Your grace, it is not my place to disagree, but you must know that I am all not that I seem. I have cheated and betrayed many. Few of my friends received something that was not a dagger to their backs” – andrekeroxd said, while bowing his head.

“It is good that you acknowledge this, and for that I shall leave you something”- Freyjia said, as she drew a beautiful necklace from her robes “This is Brisingamen”. Saying this, she took a small pearl from it and put the necklace back around her neck. She folded her hands around the pearl and a white light came from in-between her palms.

When the light was gone, the pandaren could see between the palms of the Goddess a white mask made of clay with a red symbol on it. The pandaren received the mask, admired it for a second and then he put it over his face, completely enclosing his horrible wounds and the top half of his face.

“Wear this, brave pandaren, It is made out of the hardened white clay from your birth-town. Let it remind you of what your original purpose was.” -Freyjia explained. “The red symbol upon it is written in the language of your ancestors, known only to those of your bloodline, you need not to be explained what it means, I assume?”- she asked.

“Of course not, Your Grace” -andrekeroxd nodded

“Good, let it remind you of your sins, so you may not commit them again”- Freyjia said “Finally, I know that you cannot use your vision with the mask, I made it so that you know to trust me and you may hone your other skills and not trust so much in what you see, but what you feel and think” –The Goddess said. “I cannot take you completely back to your realm, but the mask will give you the power to transport your consciousness to the place of your death. From there, you must figure a way to recover your physical remains, which must be scattered around the world. And remember spider, you are not the only one with little birds, so try not to outwit me”

And with that, the Goddess vanished and it was purple again.

“I shall not, I promise” –andrekeroxd, the adventurer, said to himself.

After some heavy thinking and reflection, I have come to realize what body parts I am missing:

My eyes, my skull, my bones, a vial of my blood, my heart, my tears and my intestines.

I will be posting any clues and thoughts in regards to location as soon as I can remember any.

Whoever gets most of my parts together will be quite decently rewarded for their troubles and will have my eternal gratitude and alliance.

Edit: Eyes, skull, blood and bone have been found. (4/7)

Hint N. 1 (Solved) Suddenly, my eyes fluttered open again and I could see a floating island with an icy tower on top of it. I quickly informed the Lokans of this and computern was the first to find a floating island at x:170 z:214.

Apparently, there was a parkour course which he avoided by skillfully pillaring right next to the tower. On top of the tower there was a sign that said: "So you thought it would be this easy?, Go down and dig at the middle bottom of the tower."

computern followed the directions and found my two eyes. He then got MasterTargaryen to help him carry them quickly to spawn and give them to me, which gave me back my physical vision. Alas, since I must use my mask, it's not to be used much in the near future.

Hint 2. (Solved) While I reflected upon the possible locations of my remains, a very vivid image came to mind.

It sounded like I was sorrounded by lava, and yet I felt a chilly breeze every now and then, which leads me to think it must be near some source of lava on the overworld, maybe the entry of a cave or in a high mountain.

Beads of sweat began to accumulate on his brow as he peered out across the landscape. It felt like an eternity since he had heard about Andre returning to this world. This search for his physical remains was starting to feel like it was taking even longer. His heart pounded in his chest from the countless miles he traveled and the heights he'd climbed. The only voice he had for company was that of the man he knew as Thief.

"Any sign of it that way?" Thief asked.

"None..."

Both of them looked as far as their eyes would reach. The world was a stiff drink and they both drank it in with frustration. Aegon glanced over at Thief with a brief look of curiosity. At this juncture he couldn't tell if he were friend or foe. Their paths had crossed on more than one occasion under both good and bad circumstances.

"I'm going to keep looking this way. You want to circle around?"

Thief was already on his way. The next hour seemed to pass by very quickly for a change. Mountain after mountain, cave after cave, every avenue seemed to be a waste of time. He refused to lose hope, even with only the two of them searching. He paused for a moment, giving himself a chance to regroup his thoughts. The shout echoed over the hills and nearly gave him a start.

"This is it! I found it!"

Thief had done it. Trees flew past him as he sprinted toward the other man's voice. The landscape became a blur of greens as he crested the last hill. Before him was a fountain of lava, pouring over the top of a cliffside. It was a pillar from hell, holding another piece of Andre's remains prisoner. Thief was already creating a makeshift bridge with cobblestone. The heat from the lava only made him perspire even more. Its ethereal glow was reminiscent of what he remembered of Freyjia. The thought tore him from reality for but a moment. Shards of stone brick landed at his feet as Thief broke into the chamber. Reality enveloped him once more. They were inside now and down the stairs within. This was the second piece. This was one step closer to giving Andre his life back.

The passed through iron bars and Aegon was focused on the chest before them. It was placed inside the wall, surrounded by glowstone and what looked like netherrack. Three steps inside and he realized it would not be so easy. The sound of a piston distracted him. The stone beneath his feet seemed to quake as he turned to see what caused it.
The Keeper of Shadows was rising to his full height after being released through his overhead barrier. The creature towered over them, breath reeking of death. The putrid stench was almost more than they could bare but were quickly distracted by the diamond blade that now sliced the air. It struck his armor before he could parry the blow and Aegon was sent flying. He hit the wall but recoiled to land on his feet. Thief had drawn his sword and threw himself into an attack. The Keeper was swathed in flame from the enchantment used against him. Shrieks of pain and anger erupted forth as both Aegon and Thief overpowered the guardian. Their swords struck necrotic flesh and armor alike. Despite the attempts to counter, The Keeper fell.

Both men stood looking at the corpse that had just tried to kill them. Aegon checked the gear while Thief stepped forward and opened the chest.

"Yep, this is it, " he said. Aegon nodded as he looked up at Thief. The notorious raider tossed the skull toward the builder which was caught with care.

"Finally. Now he has his eyes and a skull to put them in." The sardonic undertone was only subtle, but it was there. He couldn't help but feel relieved. He looked at the bleach white bone and took a deep breath. "I suppose this completes part two of this journey..."

"It would seem so." Thief began making his way out of the tomb, Aegon close behind. The skull rested safely in his satchel while his companion bricked up the hole in which they descended. There would be no need to revisit this place. Another piece of Andre's remains were safe and The Keeper was at rest. Their footsteps echoed in his ears as they stepped across the stone.

As we came to the coordinates, my mind was full of thoughts "why had Andre chosen all these other people to go, why everyone else!" As I was already mad that leasaur and minecraftjedi127 was coming with me. When I saw crew standing there, I was filled with rage and hatred. "How could so many people be here, am I that not special!"

We were walking through the tunnels that held andres bones and found various items that would help us on our journey and after past amount of traps, chests, and tricks. We came to find andres bones. Crew had gotten there first and I was extremely furious with him. I really wasn't gonna be impolite to members of loka as they are one of the greatest people of all time. I sat there, thinking...

Then... My arms.... They started tingling in a way I have never felt before... They were full of anger and hatred that crew was going to deliver Andre the bones... My mind was not thinking properly... Maybe it was the alcohol I had taken previous hours before. Then... I don't know what happened about 10 minute later...I guess nothing happened I was on the edge of the lava in the nether with all of leas and jedi's stuff people were saying to me "stop it crazy!!" "How could you do that?!" "Why, I trusted you" then it hit me.

Everything that had happened filled my head and through that, I knew I had committed a cruel, selfish act that I had done... "Why me" I ask myself "how" at that point, I was so frustrated with myself that I had ruined many peoples' day and I was now known as a murderer. I did what anyone would've done. I closed my eyes...and prayed to god that my allies and friends would forgive me... I slowly dropped down to the nether and fell into a midst of red and orange tearing me up from the inside out. I would never forgive myself for what I had done.

I woke up suddenly in the main spawn of loka, our world. Where everyone was surrounding Andre, my friend, ally, and sadly also the reason I betrayed everyone. From the signs I had read in the tunnel, it said Andre shouldn't be here because he is a thief, a murderer, and a traitor. Andre may be all those horrible things,but he is also my friend... And that is my biggest weakness. It is because of him I would even discover this world and learn the ways of minecraftia.

Those signs were wrong. Andre doesn't make people do bad things. It was I who did the wrong thing fuelled by the rage and anger of andres leaving. But I also learned something... That I should never let my anger get in the ways of alliances, and friendships. After I had thought of all this. I asked for my forgiveness especially from the three people accompanying me: crew,jedi,and lea.they accepted. Because of what they had lost in the tunnels, I repaid them back with all I could afford. It was because of me that they lost valuables that could never be brought back.

I sat back and started to think of my mistakes and promised myself I wouldn't ever do this again

Thanks to CrewSoulReaper, MinecraftJedi127, Leasur and CrazyNinjaCow23 for finding my skeleton and making me move around spawn again!

Hint 4. (Solved)
Lately, I have noticed my presence in Loka (ethereal, yes) to be waning. I think someone has heard of my coming back and is trying to prevent it. Now if it weren't for the Goddess needing me, I wouldn't care but that's not the case.

I tried going in all directions, but South is the one which i could go less further in. Maybe check that direction?

As I stood on the deserted beach I wondered again if I was crazy. I am a simple wanderer and warrior who had settled down with some friends in order to fortify ourselves and stay alive. I never cared to become engrossed in the myths of the world, and mostly kept to myself. I had heard tell of many strange goings on in Loka, but had so far stayed out of them.

However, it seemed fate had something different in store for me. Last night in my dreams a voice came to me. The voice seemed to at the same time carry the softness of light, but also the authority and cruelty of a general on the battlefield. It said that a friend had earned redemption and needed help. I had no idea what the voice spoke of, but knew that it was my duty to save anyone who needed my help. When I awoke I had a destination in my mind and knew I must set off.

I traveled for many hours and across many blocks, always in one direction. I did not know exactly where i was going, but something told me that i would find it that way. Suddenly, i saw a beach in the horizon and knew i had reached the tomb. As I arrived at the foretold location, I followed my instincts. Somehow, despite the odds, i discovered something strange inside one of the small nearby pools. At the bottom there seemed to be an area where the water stopped mid-flow, and one could descend into the dark.

It seemed I was not to go alone, however, as before I could enter I heard a voice calling out to me. I looked up and saw lea, jedi, and ninja. I had met these heroes and friends before and so decided to trust them. Together we plunged down into the depths.

As we entered the tomb we were greeted by a feast. The voices congratulated us for finding the dungeon, and so offered us to feast and prepare ourselves for our journey yet to come. After we had rested, we ventured on. After escaping traps of fire and explosives, we arrived at an intersection. At these crossroads, the voice told us that we were to be given a choice. We could either save Andre or forfeit the rest of Loka. Without hesitation, We turned towards the side of Andre, as noone in Loka would betray a friend. We knew he needed our help, and that was what we had traveled there for.

After a long stretch with the voice attempting to mislead us, we finally arrived in a room with one small chest. As i opened it up, i felt a rush of emotion and the strange sense of magic. Inside were the bones of our comrade, Andre. I quickly collected them and we prepared to depart. Our trials did not end there, however. Once we tried to leave ninja turned on us. He killed lea and jedi, however I outmatched him and he ran off. He kept trying to kill me and insisting the bones were his. His attacks were no match for my prowess with the bow, however as no matter where he tried to run or how he swerved, my arrows still found him. I did not kill him, however.

He may have murdered my friends who had accompanied me, but he had also helped to find the bones, and i could not kill him. The curse on the tomb had taken its hold, and he could not control his actions. Despite my anger demanding retribution I did not kill him and set out to bring the bones back to Andre. I would not allow any more bloodshed on that noble quest and wished to see my friend return.

Finally, the bones were returned and ninja begged for forgiveness. Of course I forgave him, as we are all companions on this quest.

Nope. I'm writing this next one.

My mother, Lazuli, ran alongside me as we quested, trying to help Andrekeroxd find all the pieces of his body. We jumped from tree to tree over the roofed forest. "We're almost there!" I shouted at Laz. When we finally came to the swamp, we leaped into the water. I has already faced my only fear, water, before on this journey, but I would do it again if it meant Andre could return to our world. We quickly climbed out and yelled back at Laz. "There!" Pointing to the witch's hut. I had my diamond sword, Heksdolke, ready to face the Witch preventing Andre from returning. No one was there. I found, hidden in a chest, a vial of his blood. Laz and I used our new powers to teleport to spawn, and took his blood to our enderchest. "Andre is one step closer to being whole, once again." I said to Laz.

Now his pink blood rests in my ender chest, awaiting the return if it's veins to flow freely again. But he is yet not whole, Andre is but a fraction between worlds depending on his betrayed friends to complete him and recover his lost sins.

Hint 5.-(Solved) I have recieved a random map... I'm not really sure what it means, but there's a red X marked in it. Unfortunately I have no idea of where it's supposed to lead me or in which direction we're supposed to go.
