OSFest 4.0 – Klingon Treasure Hunt

For generations Klingon archeologists and treasure hunters have sought the Sword of Kahless (qeylIS), the original Klingon bat'leth. But little is known about the cloth used to protect that sword; the Shroud of the Sword of Kahless. Both the shroud and the sword were stolen by the Hur'q (a Klingon word meaning "outsider," a species reported to be from the Gamma Quadrant), when they plundered Qo'noS (the Klingon homeworld) in the 14th century.
A recently discovered prophecy says that the Shroud has come to Earth but that prophecy, written in ancient Klingon, has been split into many segments and hidden throughout the hu'Man hotel known as the Old Mill Crowne Plaza. Members of the Klingon Bird of Prey IKV Raptor's Heart, who have been sent from Qo'nos to investigate, need your help in retrieving the segments and finding the Shroud if it is there.

Here's how it will work: segments of the ancient prophecy will be hidden in the Art Show, Film Room, Con Suite, Dealer's room, Workshop area, and at various panels. Suspected locations will be highlighted in the OSFest 4.0 program book, so read your book. Then go out and enjoy all that the convention has to offer while locating the missing segments. Once you have located the segments; assemble them to reveal the prophecy. Use that knowledge to locate the Shroud and return it to the members of the IKV Raptor's Heart at closing ceremonies.

Remember: collect the segments, assemble them to reveal the prophecy, find the Shroud, return it to a crew member of the IKV Raptor's Heart and receive Honor Eternal.
