    I read the entire book, and attempted the puzzles in the book. At this point, it seems the puzzles have nothing at all to do with the story.

    I figured out what the alchemy pages were all about, but they don't seem to apply to the story. And although I know what is happening in those alchemy pages, I don't know what an "answer" would be, or where I would even go to explain what it is. There is no website that I know of that is asking for such information.

    I am quite confused in the procedures for this hunt. From what I initially thought, the book could be solved on its own, and you did not have to participate in any online games or social media. Now it seems otherwise....

    I recall Frey saying to solve the puzzle all you need is the book and a internet connection. Logging into the Kepler website is required and the 73 links at the back could be part of the puzzle too... very complicated but I really don't like that there is no starting point. The room with the door and the password protected website seem a dead end so far. I wonder if they are going to make us wait 94 days (end of book) before releasing something we need to get a starting point?

    So the papers with all the designs are supposed to be folded or cut and put together puzzle style? If we are cutting pages out of the book wouldn't they make the back of those pages blank?

    I have been following some of the game that revolves around "Stella" and her videos and clues, and I found a site which answers some of the questions we have. I copied and pasted some of the questions which I have had, but I also put the link so everyone can read the entire webpage.

    Endgame: Ancient Truth

    What is an Alternate Reality Game?An Alternate Reality Game, or ARG for short, is a form of interactive, immersive storytelling that places YOU, the audience member in the center of the story. ARGs coordinate multiple channels of information across the web, mobile and the real world to tell a single unified story that feels as if it exist in the real world around you.

    Isn’t there already an ARG in the book with a prize of $500,000 in gold? Is this the same thing? No. The puzzle hunt embedded in the novel Endgame: The Calling that leads to the gold prize is completely separate from the Endgame: Ancient Truth ARG.

    Yeah, but will playing the ARG help me solve the puzzle hunt in the book and win the gold? No. The puzzle hunt in the novel is completely separate from the ARG - participating in Ancient Truth will not help you solve the puzzles in the book.

    What is the relationship between Ancient Truth and the Endgame novel? The Ancient Truth ARG begins two years before the events of the novel Endgame: The Calling. The story has been developed in close collaboration with James Frey and Nils Johnson-Shelton, authors of the Endgame series.

    So, It seems I have been wasting my time with Stella's puzzles, as they won't help with the book. But this still does not answer the questions about the strange room with the door that won't open, and how they (the authors) are supposed to track your progress.

    I think I have spent more time trying to figure out how this hunt works, than time actually working on the hunt! It is very frustrating.

    Here is where Stella's puzzles are located, just in case anyone is interested, or wasn't aware of what I was writing about in my above post:

    As far as I can tell by my experience, the Kepler site just records your progress. When you do something 'important', a circle opens up. I imagine when all three circles are open, the door will be open.

    I have one circle opened and am what I presume to be halfway through that leg (but that is supposition).

    The best way to track our progress is to use an abbreviated google url where we place answers. It would have to be a complex answer to prevent someone from surfing for answers. Stella uses an abbreviated url which is stl.la/
    I cannot think of another way to track someone's progress unless they go to a specific site.

    Do something important? You are the first person I know that has had anything happen on the Kepler site. Congrats!

    Molnar did the circle open as a result of doing something in the room or on another website?

    I can see a blue light in the hole of one of the circles

    External. The Kepler site seems to be just for viewing progress, at least at this point.
