Checking back -- it says "He who rules by the sword" -- it doesn't have the "dies by the sword" part. Once you get that, you end up at the page with Alpha Hotel etc.

Clodfobble 06-17-2004 12:22 PM

What do you mean "once you get that?"

I've tried every Username/Password combination involving "dies by the sword" and knots that I can think of.

Should I be making it this easy for you?

No!

YellowBolt 06-17-2004 12:54 PM

Okay. I'll shut up now. :)

there are 3 sets of 3 number groups on the enxt page, my guessing is they are ascii codes (random guess + looking at number range and distribution) but I can't seem to find anything on my mac that'll let me enter them, on a PC just hit hold down alt and type th number, can someone do this?

Hold down Alt? Holy crap, then I wasted SOOOO much time translating from an ASCII table. :mad:

jaguar 06-17-2004 01:29 PM

I knew I was on the right track ;)

If you really wanted to waste time you could apply some more basic oldschool cryptoanalysis and work it back from there based on letter distribution but it's hard to do it with a sample size that small.

russotto 06-17-2004 01:44 PM

The first two are plain ascii

On the Zuiderzee
That old fishing sea,
The Faeiries stole,
The boys of Marken

The old name of the site of the boy's disappearance is the name of the place you must go.

The third is:

hebban olla vogala nestas hagunnan
hinase hi(c) (e)nda thu
uu(at) unbida(n) (uu)e nu

The Dutch message (De jongen....) is babelfish-translated as "the boy will only die", but I suspect a bad translation.

(The Zuiderzee IS the old name... the new name is IJsselmeer)

(grumble... it's dot-htm, not dot-html)

Alt, and type all three digits (including leading zeros, if any) of the number on the numeric keypad.

doesn't work for me.

That ought to work... I must say, you're all solving these at a lightning-fast pace. It took me and some other people a whole day to get this far.

Beestie 06-17-2004 02:10 PM

I copied that sound from the first page. Its a series of numbers. It took a while to filter out the static but here's what I came up with:

8, 2, 7, 5, 1, 2, 6, 7, 5, 1, 2, 6, 3, 9, 2, 0, 5, 3

No guarantees - best I could do.

Not sure what its good for but maybe it'll help later :confused:

Clodfobble 06-17-2004 02:16 PM

Got the tree sign one pretty fast but I'm stuck at the "in the darkness" page, the CuriosityKilledTheCat prompt.
