The Mystery of the Steinbergking tells the tale of the legendary Steinbergking,
creator of the Alps who rules the underground world. 
By playing a trick, he was able to gain magical powers which allows him
to transform anything he touches into stone.

Possessed by a drive for domination and thirst for power, he is now trying
to conquer the world above ground too.

Help us, together with the forest-elves, to defeat the Steinbergking
with the magical words of power!

What’s happening...

  • Part 1

    The Steiner family live in the PillerseeTal and love going hiking. Recently they have noticed some mysterious stony figures on
    their walking tours.

    During their latest walk through PillerseeTal, they discovered a track of pebbles and strange footprints on the path, leading to the entrance to an old tunnel.  Once there, they could hardly believe their eyes: inside the mountain was a large stone figure moving with slow, heavy steps…

  • Part 2

    As a swarm of startled bats flew out, the stone giant reached out his hand and touched one of the bats which fell to the ground like a stone. Then he stomped slowly back inside the mountain and disappeared.

    The family wanted to flee the scene when Felix spotted something moving under one of the stones. He and Antonia found an injured elf beneath the bat which had been turned
    into stone.

  • Part 3

    Felix and Antonia carried the elf from the tunnel where she told them everything:

    “The scary giant is the Steinbergking who lives in his rocky palace deep inside the mountain. He has long been the ruler of the underground kingdom and creator of the Alps. He keeps trying to conquer the world inhabited by humans, elves and animals. He succeeded in capturing an elf and threatened to attack her and all of us if we did not grant him the magic power of ruling above ground. The elf gave in and granted him the power of transforming everything he touches into stone. Since then, he has been roaming the area and turning all creatures to stone which cannot run away fast enough. But he is slow and heavy as he is also made from stone himself”.

    But the elves have a plan for stopping the Steinbergking.

  • Part 4

    The elves have created the words of power to rob the Steinbergking of this power. The elves themselves are not able to say these words because they cannot upset the balance of power.
    However humans are allowed to decode the magic words through careful and clever collaboration to force the Steinbergking back into his kingdom.

    The Steinbergking loses part of his magic powers with each word of power spoken. Once he has completely lost all of his magic powers, the animals and humans he has transformed into stone will return to their original state.

    The magic of the words of power can only be uttered once per person.

  • Part 5

    But the elves do not trust humans and so people first have to prove themselves by solving the puzzles set by the elves. This ensures that the humans are capable of tackling adventure and clever enough to act appropriately.

    Just as the elf was about to reveal all of the puzzle locations, there was a rustling and rumbling sound behind the family.

    The Steinbergking!

    When the family turned back towards the elf, she had disappeared and the family fled the scene as quickly as they could. Once they were back to safety, they decided to look for the elf puzzle stations and to help other brave families in their search for the words of power.
    And so your adventure in PillerseeTal begins...
