Enlightened Journey
On the peaceful island of Entrana, a lone monk has tired of his life of simplicity and quiet reflection. Auguste wants to boldly write his name in the history books; to craftily defeat the laws of physics; to miraculously sail through the air... preferably not to horribly explode into a ball of flaming death. Of course, to do all this he'll need the help of a worldly adventurer! Are you bold enough to merrily laugh in the face of the unknown?

Speak to Auguste in Entrana.

Origami Balloon

He will explain that he is an aspiring balloonist who wishes to explore new frontiers and is looking for a skilled assistant to help him. Offer your services and he will give you blueprints of a balloon. He will then go on to explain about how the hot air balloon works, and will ask you to bring him three pieces of papyrus, a ball of wool, a full sack of potatoes and a candle.

Bring to items to Auguste and he will get you to make an origami balloon by using the papyrus with the wool and then using a candle as the heat source.

Building the balloon

Speak to Auguste who will then ask you to light the origami balloon. Following the cutscene, Auguste will ask for the remaining papyrus and the potatoes. Following the second cutscene in which the farmers 'destroy the floating thing'. Auguste will then be pleased with the success of the experiments and will ask you to collect the items to build the proper balloon. He requires eight sandbags, ten pieces of silk, a clay bowl, yellow and red dye. He will also give you a willow sapling and a basket of apples to plant and then get the branches. The willow tree will take roughly 3.5-4 hours to grow but if you don't want to wait for the willow tree to grow you can buy 12 willow branches from the Grand Exchange.

Return to Auguste and give him the items he asked for. You will need to make two bank trips. Use the willow branches on the basket and Auguste will build the rest of the balloon. Speak to Auguste once the balloon is finished, and he will inform you that you will be piloting the balloon. You will need 10 logs and a tinderbox to fly the balloon. Should you crash, you will need to make your way back to Entrana with 10 more logs.

Flying the balloon

Once you're ready to start flying, an interface will come up. The main objective is to reach the other side of the screen without bumping into any of the objects (even the clouds). Clicking the log button will move the balloon upwards once space, whilst the sandbag will move you up two spaces. The normal rope will move you down once space and therefore the red rope will move you downwards two spaces. The relax button will move you one space to the right. There are three different stages you will have to correctly fly before you can land.

Map Controls

For the first stage, click the sandbags once and then the logs once. Relax nine times, tug the normal rope three times and then relax until you reach the second stage.

For the second stage, relax three times and then click the sandbag once. Relax seven more times and then click the log. Relax until you reach the third stage.

For the third stage, relax seven times. Pull the red rope followed by the normal rope and then relax three more times. Click the log followed by the normal rope and then relax until you reach the landing area.

You will find yourself in Taverly. Return back to Auguste and speak to him to him once more.
