Treasure Hunt + Hint!

Sun Apr 15, 2012, 5:37 PM by Inna-Vjuzhanina:iconinna-vjuzhanina:

Almost all of you coped perfectly with the first step and judging from the notes we've received many of you are one step from getting the right password. :la: But there's one thing needed to be cleared out - this is our first project of this kind and we made a little mistake not giving you the clues as how the puzzle in the Step II should be solved (though many of you guessed on their own). So we're giving you a hint with it:

:bulletpink: The story in the riddle-poem is fictional, so don't confuse the plot of it into being a clue. It was just a way to connect all the necessary elements into one whole.
:bulletpink: Once you decipher the clues given you need to find a way to get a part of each of them and combine them into a password!

:bulletpink: You don't need to guess the password - you have to see it so to speak :)


Dear raiders, we're delighted to announce that we have reached our first big number – a 1000 members! We're a fairly new group so we get excited over details; some of you might remember that we had a little surprise for you when we reached our first 100! Well, this time to celebrate the event we've prepared a real quest for you.

Many of you are experienced raiders who have completed impossible missions and solved the trickiest of puzzles. The time has come to prove how good you are.

Warning: this challenge might be a little tricky for some of you. If you think you can handle it – read on!

The quest consists of three steps – finding the clue, solving the puzzle, getting to the vault of trophies to claim your prize.  


_______________________________________



Step I Look carefully through the pages of the Empire. Only those with a keen eye will see the clue.


Step IIAfter you've seen it follow the lead and face the puzzle. Solve it and you will get the key for the final step.


Step III  – :iconopen-sesame: – This is the final destination. To open the gate to it you must break in with the password which you have obtained in Step II. If you succeed to enter the account you will find a note which will tell you what to do to prove that you have passed the test!

   


There can be only one winner! The one who finishes the game challenge first will be awarded. And don't worry, we will know who that is ;)

As for the prize – this is not a real contest, it's simply a fun challenge in which all of you can participate. That is why the prize won't consist of premium memberships and large amounts of points.

If you prove that you're a real raider you will get a collaboration artwork from us admins, :iconpencil-stencil: and :iconinna-vjuzhanina:, a feature in the group and 40 points!


Are you game? :iconchallengeacceptedplz:

Okay, I'm gonna have to think about what I want as a request for a little while, since you're both so good so I don't wanna waste the chance on something stupid. :XD: Can I ask if there's anything in particular you won't draw or prefer not to draw?

Pencil-Stencil Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
it's not stupid if you like it, who are we to judge :D although i have to say i would rather not draw anything in manga style :iconbadpokerfaceplz: i'm not sure if that's even what you'd want, but it's very popular and spread all over, and since you already asked that's the first thing i thought of not wanting to do :XD: if you insist of course i would, but you asked =P other than that it can be anything you want with a realistic feel :D

Becken95 Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Student General Artist
Trust me, that's perfectly okay. I don't like the mangastyle at all. :XD: You can draw it whatever style you want, it's the theme I'm curious about. :)

Many people are asking about that now, but I don't know if the founders allow me to share it or if there are anyone who still wanna solve the puzzle.

You'll have to wait a little, I'm afraid! I bet the founders will reveal the answer, I would rather have them do it in the journal than me trying to explain it to everyone individually. :)

I'm not sure if I can say it, because perhaps some people still wanna solve it (and I don't know if the founders allow it, lol) Many people are asking about that now, so I think the founders will reveal it in the journal later on. Rather that than me explaining it to everyone one by one. :XD:

Eh, can I ask a question? I'm not sure if it's too much of a clue, but could you tell me if the password is supposed to be a word or just a bunch of nonsense?
Reply
:iconpencil-stencil:
Pencil-Stencil Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
haha :D well what's the point of a password being a bunch of nonsense :D it is a word ;) you have to riddle it out using what you got from the puzzle hints. you don't have to guess the password, you have to find a way to see it, so to speak :D

we can't tell you what you're supposed to find - that is the point of finding it :D it is something hidden in the group which normally isn't there. something unusual let's say =P don't go looking too far, there aren't any hidden sentences and clues hidden in journals, rules and stuff like that. that would have been way too difficult. just look for something that usually isn't a part of the group :D

50 pages? OMG :D Where you've been searching for it? :XD: I feel you deserve a little hint after doing do much work. So the hint - don't dig too deep, just look attentively through the basic pages of the group. It's right there, at quite visible place, just be attentive. ;) Good luck! :blowkiss:

That's the same for me I tried for hours !! I imagined lots of solutions but there is still a part of the text I can't decrypt, that must refer to one of the game's part I forgot.. I'm dying to ask you if I'm even looking in the good direction but I don't want to spoil it for the others. I guess that's the proof it's a real good and tricky puzzle. I hope the night will bring me a part of the solution. Anyway good research every one !!

oh yeah, sorry!! haha :rofl:

well i guess we could get to it in about an hour or two :D 3 tops =P depends on how busy we'll be with other stuff (we both just got back from uni and work) and how long will it take us to come up with a hint which wouldn't be too revealing =P we have to give the hint carefully :D

I think we will. :) We really made a little mistake not giving clues as to the way to solve the puzzle so I think we will fix that. My co-founder is currently off-line, but once she comes back home we’ll discuss the details and hopefully update this entry with the hint. Stay tuned, you’re already half way to the final destination! ;)

I think we will update with a hint in the evening anyways since it was really wrong not to give people any clues to the scheme of solving, but you’ve done a lot of work already so yeah, you can send me a note and I’ll tell you if you’re moving in the right direction or not. :)
