    Hey! I just got an email from mike stadther's cousins barber.

    It said...

    Here is clue number one: drink more ovaltine.

    mike stadther

    P.S. Mike sent me a carrier pigeon saying his favorite quote is ""The thing about quotes on the internet is that you cannot confirm their validity." by Abraham Lincoln. Maybe that is a clue too!

    P.P.S. I'm not very good at sarcasm. I'm just frustrated with a puzzle without an answer. Maybe we need a reality show like Hoarders for Trovers. We could call it Clueless.

    So, I read this thread about a week or two ago and decided not to post anything since every time someone says hey I solved it I get all excited. I decided to just shoot an email to Lordrhast and see what he knows about this. Well today he got in touch with me and... now don't get your hopes up and start screaming at me in a week, but he said that Mike is planning on releasing some additional clues until it is solved. I don't know when, I don't know where, and I am not going to bug Lordrhast about it to much.

    Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks to possum652 (Steve) for getting this thing rolling again. I am very excited about some additional clues. I will be getting the books out once again tonight.

    Looking forward to solving this puzzle even without the prize.

    I just wanted to post an update. I spoke with Lordrhast again and he is having issues posting on tweleve, seams he lost his password. He did post on my backup forum and as soon as the admins reset his password here he will post here as well.

    post at other forum:

    Alchemistdar Backup Forum • View topic - New clues this week?

    Thanks

    This is extremely suspicious. It is very hard to believe that after so many years, that Mike Stadther would suddenly want to send clues. The rings have been sold, they are gone. It is over.

    I've been on the forum long enough to recognize Kevin (lordthast) and Digitizer as good guys. I hope someone isn't pretending to be Mike the author and duping them. Guys, false hope is not good for you or for this forum. Please be very careful.

    On the other hand (I talk out of both sides of my mouth, always have, always will), I'm so excited to know what the solution is.

    Default Hello Folks

    I finally figured out my old password after 20 or so attempts....

    Anyhow, a little background for you all.

    Mike and I have been in contact every couple of months since the hunt on other topics as we are both from the same geographical area and have other interests that we have talked about. I have communicated with Mike in person, via phone, and of course email.

    The email Mike uses for me is his very private email that we have used since the book introduction and I do not think I could be mislead about it being him at all.

    As of today, Mike S. plans on releasing clues weekly until solved and I can say this is not for his gain, he just knows that there are many of us that would like to work it to a solve after the many days and hours we dedicated to this hunt. We have not set a start date for clue release yet except to say soon. He is in the middle of a project and I have to preside over a hearing the next couple of days.

    The plan in thought is to post the clue exactly as I receive it on www.Trovers4Ever.com and then Digi and I have tossed the idea of a closed thread to put the clues on his site, and let the discussion threads branch off from there. This would allow all of the clues to be easily accessed in the order as I receive them.

    I will not hold them as I have been asked...(could not believe I was asked that but anyhow) I will post them as time permits as soon as I receive them from Mike.

    I truly believe this is just a good will gesture from Mike S. to give those of us who want to work on it an avenue to continue.

    Good to hear from the few friends that have emailed me after all of these years.

    Good luck,

    Kevin ( Lordrhast )

    Why post clues? Why not just give us the damned answers? That's the least he could do.

    Default Update - Locked thread created by Digi on his forum page

    Just an update..

    As we get the logistics of the posting of clues figured out I will keep you updated the best I can.

    Digi has been nice enough to create a locked thread on his forum that can not be posted to except by the two of us.

    I will post the clues as they release to this thread, in order, without any modification.

    Alchemistdar Backup Forum; View topic - Clues from Mike

    --- and then you can create a thread to discuss a clue if you so wish. I just wanted to keep the clues in order and easy to read and search as we all know how our threads easily get off topic.

    Between myself and Digi we will get any clues and/or graphics - artwork that Mike supplies to the thread as soon as possible - again without any alteration or adaptation.

    I will also be posting them to www.Trovers4Ever.com ...

    Shecrab, to answer your question, I did not ask for answers, many of us want clues to work it out. If you do not want to work on it, just sit back and when it is solved, well there ya go you will have the answer.

    Rather than send PM's , feel free to email any questions you have to me at Lordrhast@gmail.com , I will reply as soon as possible, the delay may come when I am in session with the Board of ed. No one will receive the clues any faster than another. ( that was a question I received via email , if I would show favoritism - NO )

    Please do not take this the wrong way , but the last time I released clues for my friend, I received a fair amount of bashing emails. It was a limited number of people, however, I will not tolerate it this time. I will block your emails and I will not reply in any manner.

    Please lets keep this in the spirit that we all started this hunt, in cooperation and friendship.

    I do truly hope that you enjoy looking back through the book at your own leisure...

    Remember this also, Mike did not even have to come to me and say he would release any clues, he could have just stayed away.

    Take care and Good Luck,

    Lordrhast ( Kevin )

    Lordrhast,
    Please express a huge thank you to Mr. Stadther for his willingness and cooperation to help bring an end to his creation of the Secrets of the Alchemists Dar. I understand the many countless hours he spent creating such a master puzzle. It is greatly appreciated that he is willing to provide more clues in an effort to bring closure to the creation that has left so many with this nagging emptyness. I understand how he must have felt when the book sales took such a horrible legal battle and ultimate demize. I truely believe he would have done more sooner if he could have legally. No one was happy with the way this treasure hunt endend, including Mike, and I am glad he is able to return to see his master creation in action once again. Happy troving everyone!


    Lindenmi
    No question is a stupid question if you don't
    know the answer. Stupid is not asking.
