You find the Warrior in the barracks, training for a battle she is unaware that is about to be fought. Her impressive physique towers over you as you approach. She recognizes you from your days as a young hero, but her stoic expression doesn’t give way to any warmth or kindness. You tell her about Aragrim and the impending war and ask that she join you in the fight.

“Hero, I shall join you in the fight against Aragrim if you are able to retrieve my most powerful weapon. Beneath these barracks is my dungeon and personal armoury that houses my eight legendary weapons, each one guarded by the spirit of a Sailor Scout. Ask a Sailor Scout’s spirit to lend you their strength to access its weapon, but you can only do so once. If you can identify and bring to me my most powerful weapon, I will gladly fight alongside you to save this kingdom.”

You stand before the eight legendary weapons. Which of the eight Sailor Scout spirits’ weapons do you ask for? To figure out which weapon to retrieve, find and scan one or more of the seven specially-marked QR codes in the kingdom to gain clues. You don’t need all clues to figure out which weapon to take, but having more clues will be helpful. When you think you know the answer, write down the name of the guardian whose weapon you will retrieve on your answer sheet.

Some puzzles may require some knowledge from the Tome. Some might not. In case you need it, here it is.

Huntmaster’s Note: This puzzle required Heroes search the Convention Centre for as many QR codes as they can. For your convenience, here are the seven QR codes. Try to figure out the right answer with the fewest clues! If you’re lucky, you can solve this puzzle with two clues.
