In the Quad, I spoke with Santa again


This is a little embarrassing, but I need your help.

Our KringleCon turtle dove mascots are missing!

They probably just wandered off.

Can you please help find them?

To help you search for them and get acquainted with KringleCon, I’ve created some objectives for you. You can see them in your badge.

Where's your badge? Oh! It's that big, circle emblem on your chest - give it a tap!

We made them in two flavors - one for our new guests, and one for those who've attended both KringleCons.

After you find the Turtle Doves and complete objectives 2-5, please come back and let me know.

Not sure where to start? Try hopping around campus and talking to some elves.

If you help my elves with some quicker problems, they'll probably remember clues for the objectives.

I then took a wander around The Quad and found a letter in the North West corner. See Unredact Threatening Document for details of the letter.

I then went to Hermey Hall

When I returned to the Quad my next place to visit was the Student Union

As I had now found the Turtle Doves, I came back for another chat with Santa:


Thank you for finding Jane and Michael, our two turtle doves!

I’ve got an uneasy feeling about how they disappeared.

Turtle doves wouldn’t wander off like that.

Someone must have stolen them! Please help us find the thief!

It’s a moral imperative!

I think you should look for an entrance to the steam tunnels and solve Challenge 6 and 7 too!

Gosh, I can’t help but think:

Winds in the East, snow coming in…

Like something is brewing and about to begin!

Can’t put my finger on what lies in store,

But I fear what’s to happen all happened before!

The last place to visit was the Dormitory, but before I could enter I had to talk to Tangle Coalbox:


Hey kid, it's me, Tangle Coalbox.

I'm sleuthing again, and I could use your help.

Ya see, this here number lock's been popped by someone.

I think I know who, but it'd sure be great if you could open this up for me.

I've got a few clues for you.

  1. One digit is repeated once.
  2. The code is a prime number.
  3. You can probably tell by looking at the keypad which buttons are used.

Terminal Challenge Frosty Keypad


Yep, that's it. Thanks for the assist, gumshoe.

Hey, if you think you can help with another problem, Prof. Banas could use a hand too.

Head west to the other side of the quad into Hermey Hall and find him in the Laboratory.

After I had visited the Dormitory, Minty's Dorm Room and Steam Tunnels, and completed all of the Objectives, I returned to the Sleigh Workshop to find that I could now access the Bell Tower.
