Plot[edit | edit source]

The hunt initially starts with solvers getting a letter from the Blueno Resurrection Society, who planned on resurrecting Blueno, a mascot from Brown Puzzlehunt. However, that resurrection turned out to be a monster, and solvers were then approached by the BlueNope group to stop Blueno from destruction by defeating three aspects of Blueno -- Lamp, Bear, and Dear Blueno. Once that is done, teams on campus infiltrated the procession and snatched the Blueno icon to stop the resurrection for good.
