    Default Mystery On Your Mind

    Ok. It is not so much a mystery , but the answer must be found. Can you solve the clues and find the answer? This is my first hunt, so go easy on me. Please join as a member(it is free) and play(no prize,sorry). Let me know what you think. You should have access here:
    Home - Treasure Hounds

    The story unfolds in the blog. I will eventually build a forum and give members access. Also I will welcome other puzzles and hunts from first timers or promote your game/hunt/puzzle if you mail me. Have fun!

    Looks ineresting. Not sure where to start. Looking for a legend is a pretty broad subject. I'll keep thinking about this and see what I can come up with. Thanks for posting and I'll certainly talk to you about advertising when I finish my hunt that I am currently writing (Still a ways to go before it is ready.) You should talk to Domino, who just released his hunt: Cowboy. Anyways, good luck with this one and I look forward to seeing more in the future.

    Glad your lookin' at it. There are some strong clues as to what that first sentence is...and from there, it shouldn't be too awfull hard. The clues for the words are in the first chase!

    I was doing OK until the 5th chase, then I got thoroughly confused.

    If you found the 1762 map, discovering what the division is....is important to solving this one. Carefully reading the post is crucial to get the directions right. I planned this one to take a while....but the answer is there...=)

    Yes, have the 1762 map, have the division also.

    Have gone "through that type of hole" and trying to decide "what is described".

    Edit: Actually I think I have the stars, trying to figure out which 4 are needed.

    All right, so I did have the right legend. Just the wrong terminology. I'm now to the map as well.

    Glad you are all having fun with it... I am going to go through again and see where you are hung up. I was tricky with words for sure.

    Give us some time to work it out. A puzzle that is too hard isn't great, but fixing it or walking us through the hard parts whenever we are stuck isn't great either. The joy of these puzzles is too discuss and work through the problems. Just some constructive criticism from one who has been doing this for a while.
