    The URL is tenthleaf.com - Armchair treasure hunt - About

    edit .... Sorry forgot to say, that according to the site it isn't due to get underway until later this year.

    This looks very nice. I am pretty sure I have the answers to the two questions, yet something must be wrong, as I'm getting the "sorry - try again" message. Oh well.

    good work steve. did find who took the picture and where it was taken. still trying to figure the # tho.

    good luck to all twelevers doing this one.

    should it be moved from new hunts?

    should we have a password for this thread and work together?

    just a few questions to those out there working on this.

    I think, and I might very well be wrong as I haven't managed to get to Chapter 2, that the bird is showing it's "number" with its feet. This way it looks like there's a number right underneath the bird. I could be wrong though. As for the thread and password, either way is fine. I could post here or elsewhere, whatever the group decides.

    I might be wrong, but don't think Chapter 2 is available yet .....

    On the About Tenth Leaf page it says
    The treasure hunt will be open in the second half of 2010, and full details of the prize and rules of the competition will be announced nearer the time. The treasure hunt will be free to enter and available to all comers.
    To whet your appetite, Chapter 1 of the treasure hunt is now available.
    Perhaps that's why we are getting past Chapter 1?

    Good point Writerian.

    I went to the website and checked all the links. Interestingly the terms and conditions link shows blank pages on the book.

    So we COULD be guessing correctly and still will get the "SORRY - TRY AGAIN" message.

    I signed up for the newsletter and invited the author to either lurk within Tweleve or join in and give us some insight as to how this hunt is going to start, and if we can even submit an answer yet.

    So hopefully he will let us know.

    If I had the time or even knew how I would start a wiki page for us Twelevers that would need a password to access. Possibly something to look to down the road. Not exactly posting answers but helping each other out with a few nudges. Do any of you have some input on something like this?

    I thought the same thing, so I emailed the author a few days ago, and got this reply on the 9th.

    Hi musicman,
    Thanks for your enquiry. The only chapter that is online is chapter one. If you get the answers right to the first two questions, you will be directed to a web page that is a place holder for the real chapter 2 and just gives a "well done" message. None of the other chapters are there either (apart from place holders). The rest of the treasure hunt is still in development but progressing well.

    I shall add your question to my FAQs page.

    Regards
    Janet


    So, it does look like we CAN progress to Chap 2 at least, but it will be a placeholder there.

    Now, one idea I have with the puzzle is, that it relates to Edgar Allan Poe, "The Raven" or something like that. The pages say that we need to figure out the link between the unhappy girl and the black bird? Also, we need to figure out that map. What if we use the first letters of the creatures that are in the squares? or the first letter of the first, the second letter of the second, the third letter of the third etc....?

    Could the sociable trees be (Family) Trees? as in Genealogy?

    Well, can't wait for the Wiki, I think this hunt is going to be cool, we just need to figure out how to get to Chap 2 lol
