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


:/

Highlighting the picture makes it a lot easier to see. I wouldn't have made it past level 5 if I hadn't figured that out.

Here are the actual numbers:

28561
83521
130321
279841

Pay no attention to the screaming face or the church.

EDIT: Okay, yea, four was simple.


You've got to be kidding me. I have a large tendency to over-think things but this time, I don't even have a place to start thinking.

Maybe this gall bladder medicine is killing my brain cells.

Don't pay any attention to the clue in the source, that didn't help at all. Just think about the words in the image. Believe me, once you figure it out you'll wonder how the hell you weren't able to right off the bat.

But I'll post the answer anyway for anyone who wants it:

Code:
shadow.htm


Anywhoo, yea, I found the imaginary image and that was the one I was referring to, but I can't figure out what to do with the complex numbers in that image.

First, I figured out the light one
Code:
the answer being shadow, yeah, I'm dumb


Stuck on the numbers one? I'll give somebody who needs a hint for that one, the numbers are 13, 17, 19, and 23 to the fourth power. What kind of numbers are those? That's the answer.

The next one with the oldoak tree was actually really easy for me. Here are some clues.

Code:
<bg sound src="../imaginary.jpg"> Does this look a little out of place to you? Try plugging the jpg into the URL. A list of coordinates.

The page hint says "go to the next image", look at the name of the oak tree itself. It ends in an "-a". What comes after "a"? I think you can figure it out now. if not, I'll add one final hint:





"they are spelled the same backwards and forwards"

Ah, dang I didn't even think of
Code:
palindromes
Nice one Tony. Thanks to that I was able to make it to number ten no sweat. But I am stuck again. I have the silk bag from Veros woods, but I can't figure out what the right extension/decryption tool is for that file.

Anyway, I think I've had enough for tonight.

I think i'm on like level 11 now in the red graveyard. Me and some IRC folks blitzed through a ton.

As for the decryption tool, I opened it in a word processor program. If you do, You can locate the following.

WHY IS THE FUCKING CODE BUTTON SO GAY. Whatever. change the .xxx to










.ttf. It's a font.

...Not working on my computer, all I get is jibberish. I've tried opening it in Word, Notepad, and OpenOffice, and all I get is jibberish. Teh sigh.

EDIT: Nevermind, I got it. But I have no clue about solving number eleven. Maybe I'll jump into IRC later today.

Thanks Nemmet, but I got it. Anyway, I'm stopping at thirteen. It was fun while it lasted but I'm tired of looking for clues and trying to figure these out. Apparently there are at least forty and I don't want to take the time trying to get that far when I was having trouble already.

If anyone manages to complete it, I'd like them to mention it so I can congratulate them for having more stamina than I have.

Got to 23 and gave up. Too convoluted and too much guess work now.

Bleh.
