    Oh, and here's another burning question ... how long does it take for them to recognize you've paid your money, and are waiting for access to the other 60+ pages of the book?

    Made the purchase about noontime Thursday (8/8/13) and got my payment verification notice back from PayPal almost immediately.

    It is now nearly 7:00pm (central time) on 8/10, and I have yet to receive my "unlock code" so I may proceed.

    I have repeatedly checked my eMail inbox, along with both my junk and deleted folders, but find no communications from ToC. I'm a bit upset as you can see ...

    Hi OceanArcher

    "Unlock code"? I didn't ever receive such thing.

    Actually I filled the buy form, including my email and a password, and after I paid, I received an email saying "Welcome! Thank you for purchasing the Treasure of Camelot eBook" and with the same info that I've entered. So I logged-in using my email as username and my password, and voila!, I had the pages unlocked.

    Did you try to log-in using your email as username and the password that you previously provided?

    Regards,
    Oromis

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR --

    Leave it to my dumb-arsed self to miss the obvious. Thank you, OROMIS for pulling my head outa my nether region for me.

    I owe you a hint on this hunt if I ever manage to get things rolling ... Thanks again

    I had expected to find twelve unique Roman numbers, but have only managed to find eleven. As I haven't seen any other posts about this, I must be going blind.

    Molnar,
    If I remember correctly, one of the images or preview page on the website (perhaps Merlin at the workbench) had a shape and number on it. But the same image in the full e-book didn't have the shape/number, so I thought it was strange. I don't have the details now, but I have notes saying LII in a hexagon. Wait, just go to the website homepage and watch the images go by and you will see it. Is that which one you are missing?

    Yes, that's the one, thanks. How very strange.

    Cool, glad I could finally return the favor somewhat!

    Sometimes "strange" is on purpose.

    The Camelot forum seems to have had some glitches lately. People have been banned from the site without reason, and other strange things have been happening. People have tried to reach "Rob" the main author of the ebook, and he has not replied. Apparently this has been going on for quite some time. Even the moderators of the site have not been able to reach anyone "official" from Camelot.

    Besides that, people have been questioning the validity of the hunt, as some "hot spots" seem to come and go. Some hot spots appear once you solve a puzzle, which is understandable. But there seem to be others that appear and disappear. Were they there all along? Do the authors add hot spots when they feel like it? The question had been posted on the official forum as to whether the hunt was solvable or not. People questioned if there were some hot spots that were not activated because the authors were waiting until their ebook sales were high enough to cover the price of what it cost to pay out the prize money.

    What bothered me the most was that no one from the official Camelot group had posted anything on the Camelot site for a long, long while. Where were they? Why didn't they come on to the forum to address the glitches? Why didn't they answer people's PMs to them, especially the moderator's PMs? Why didn't someone from Camelot address the questions people were having about the hunt being legitimate?

    Today, I went to the forum, and it is no longer there! A screen comes up that says that page does not exist! And it links you to the ebook.

    Is the forum under construction? Are they addressing the questions people have had? Are they "erasing" the questions people have had about the legitimacy of their hunt? The ebook is still up and running. Does anyone else think this is strange?
