Update to this Quest

Near the end of the Quest when you turn right towards the towers, the white house — once the home of Charles Johnston — is still there, but it is no longer a dentist’s office. The recent Quest ending has been updated: (it is no longer There you are. Now take a seat. Isn’t this place sweet? Now back to Alumni Hall with pillars tall. Walk in. Greet who is there. Ask and your treasure will appear.) The new ending can be found in linked Quest, and reads:

There you are. Now take a seat. Isn’t this place sweet?

Look high and low and high again

Treasure sits where a dove may rest upon its feet
