That was my absolute favourite as a kid! So nostalgic! I wonder where my copy has got to?


#150


So has anyone tried commenting on these posts?

Also we got a little bit of back story in this one!!


#151

Okay so I posted a comment on the lastest Ackerly Green Instagram post now I just have to wait for a reply!


#152

Hmmm looks like the comment idea was a bust or maybe we have to comment something else? @Saberlane have you seen anymore activity on the account?


#153


And in a spooky case of happenstance (Or :cjmagiq: ) I had “You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!” playing in my head as I went to check.

I think I have more of a sense of what we nightmare buddies did to Knatz now…


#154

So I’m stumped at what this mysterious poster wants or is trying to communicate


#155

Its almost like he’s trying to tell us something :rofl:
I have to say, we faced the literal storm and for some reason I find the idea of a ghost running the Ackerly Green instagram far more unnerving. Warner is familiar though, right? He used to co-own the old Ackerly Green I think? So that gives this… whatever they are, a time and place, if they knew Warner.

Detective @Rimor is one the case of mystery book poster, first finding us a new clue!


#157

Ye it’s either a huge clue or just a coincidence but I thought it was worth a shot. I’m gonna comb through the Instagram posts and see if I can find anything

The very back book keeps referencing someone named kirk. I think its the same book too, but different pages of it.

It references tite and botany too. Definitely the same book


#160

Okay so the first 9 posts are unique after that it’s either letters, books or wooden table as background. The only noticeable thing in the book background is the “Beliefs and magic” heading


#161

Possible match?

Aaaand a book that makes numerous references to all 3 words! http://books.google.ca/books?id=2RkkDwAAQBAJ&pg=PT146&lpg=PT146&dq="kirk"+"tete"+"botany"&source=bl&ots=3puyshhPWE&sig=0m9ccF4QIfoItQqyAzndl3DXVUg&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwie-dy3vPzcAhWTCDQIHRoEDH4Q6AEwAXoECAcQAQ#v=onepage&q="kirk"%20"tete"%20"botany"&f=false Its called “kirk on the zambesi”. Written by Sir Reginald Coupland. Follows a man named David Livingstone in 1858 on a zoological and botanical expedition to the Zambesi with a companion named kirk. Written like a biography.

Oof. Davids cause of death was rather nasty. Internal bleeding mixed with disentary. Both of them were british legendary figures and african explorers. Interesting.
