Ah, I really like this kind of stuff but I'm so bad at it, it's embarassing. I got stuck already on the second one :(

Heh, I'm in the same boat Cauton. The first was simple enough but two has me stumped.

I decided to skim through a thread from some other forums where they began the riddle earlier this month. Level 22 is apparently a 9.5 meg rar file with nothing but a ton of folders and strange text files in them, and they've made it up to level 35.

The first page is easy DR. The source code says something to the extent of "each number has a succeeding one except 26." 26 referring to the last letter of the alphabet, so each number in the image corresponds to that letter in the alphabet.

I'm still stuck on two though.

I eventually managed to get to number five (I think - one with a series of numbers, anyway) before getting stuck again. Argh, so frustrating.

There's upside-down text at the bottom left of the screen. It's a file type. Figure it out. hehe.


Me, I'm stuck on #2 regardless. Someone toss me a bone.

Is ".xxx" even a real file type or am I a moron?

Number #2 hint: The useless words really are useless. Take them away and you're left with the answer.

Solution:
Code:
Take the first letter of each word of the text on the image, except for "are", "yet" and "the" and you'll get answer.

According to the hint of #3 Charon talks about a poisonous river, if you know  mythology you know which river Charon is the ferry man of.

If you type that name another hint will come on the new page. Use google
to answer the actual question 'How long I must stand this silent curse?' on the riddlepage #3.

Solution
Code:
nineyears.htm

Stuck on riddle page #5. The previous one was easy but this whole mess of numbers, Alba, directions and a mysterious man has me stumped.

Ah, dang, I thought it had something to do with the message in the bag on #2. And Tony, that was the first thing I found on that page :P

Three was easy enough for any Greek mythology buff like me. I'm now trying to figure out four.

EDIT: Okay, yea, four was simple.

EDIT 2: I'm still stuck on five, but in case anyone didn't notice, at the bottom of the picture it says "Multiples are weak" so faint it is easy to miss.

EDIt 3: ZOMG! Five was easy too! But six has me stumped. I found the next image but I don't have any clue of where to go from here.

There's the 'next' image, and then there is the imaginary image. Check the source.

God, this is frustrating.  I've spent way too much time squinting at dark pictures than is good for my eyes.  And now I'm totally stuck on number five.

It's taking all the restraint I have to not scroll up to the top of this thread and ban whoever made it. :P
