The path to this is confusing me, and I think perhaps it is an overlooked quirk of the two account options. I am not currently signed up for the upgraded account (plan to, but not this month).
I played all the available levels in the forest world, and none of them were “The Long Road”, nor have I been able to find that level in any way other than to click the link in Harry’s comment. I vaguely recall one previous level with a pet, but do not recall learning any specific commands for the pet, only that it could function as another person to be commanded other than “hero” in commands already used for the hero in previous levels.
I therefore conclude that either a) I’m blind (which is distinctly possible) and the non-upgraded account path didn’t require I complete The Long Road. or b) that level is not accessible to non-upgraded users unless they have a direct link (which seems an odd way to set it up).
It does seem (from my own perspective as an academic tutor) that if one is going to rely on information gained in that level (or group of levels - others seem to be referenced but not named here, but I couldn’t find them either) that one aught to require that level prior to relying on the student possessing that information.
Alternatively if one chooses to eliminate the training level from the un-upgraded accounts, then one aught not to require that game-specific information in order to progress in the un-upgraded path (which Fast and Furri-ous seems to do).
I am also confused because I seem to have a pet (because it has appeared in two levels), but I also seem not to have a pet in that it is grayed out. Also I can not click on it (like I can on my other tools) to find out what phrases it “grants”, which would be my usual workaround to solve this lack of information problem.
If I have missed an entire section, can someone please direct me to where I can find it?
Also, is there somewhere I can find a list of the available commands for the pet?
I am about to go play “The Long Road” in hopes that will solve my confusion.
Even more confused.
Seem to be able to get to levels that require the pet (The Long Road via link and Fast and Furri-ous as a required part of the desert), but do not seem to have the .fetch(item) function available in either place.
