    Default Torment

    "Hope is the worst of evils, for it prolongs the torment of man."
    http://www.grngecko.com/torment.html

    Has anyone else here tried this one?

    It's a puzzle trail. The kinds of puzzles included are different ciphers (anagrams, caesar shifts, vigenere, gold bug, etc.) plus finding where coordinates lead you.

    The theme imagery is on the creepy/dark/spooky side but the puzzles (so far) have been good. (I'm currently at the blocks level; seems to be where almost everyone on the internet got stuck, I haven't played with it enough yet to give up though.)


    Advice from the author
    Entering solution keys:
    After you type the solution key in the text box provided then click the "submit" button.

    If you receive a "page cannot be found" response it means the solution key
    you entered was incorrect.

    However, if you are recycled to the same page, with a new blank space for entry then you probably used the "enter" or "return" key rather than clicking on the "submit" button.

    Also, no caps and no spaces but accents on foreign words could be important. I got stuck at one point because I had an extra space behind my answer, arrrrgh! ~ Sluggy

    About dead ends:
    A red herring "dead end" is undetectable. However they are only placed at what would be considered a wild guess as punishment. A wild guess is one that is made in an extreme attempt to find a later stage early (a shortcut) avoiding the natural progression. Red herrings are not named similar or close to correct answers. At stage one to enter and submit “thelaststage” (not an actual red herring) would be considered an example of a wild guess.

    Having said all that there are a few friendly guides that are placed at likely wrong answers. They will be known as they to not have an “enter solution key” box and submit button. Using the “back” key will return you to the previous page.

    Solution (Spoiler) Information (from greengecko)

    "Any one who knows my style understands that many of the solutions are not intended to be figured out at first glance. Some solutions may torment you for days, weeks or months - remain patient.

    I realize people often work together while solving puzzles and in doing so share their progress. I have no problems with anyone working within such a group.

    I only ask that your communications remain discreet and you refrain from publicly posting solutions in this and other forums."



    Just remember, if you decide to try this and you want to discuss it here: Do not post a solution, hints can be posted in spoiler tags, and puzzles can be discussed carefully.



    WARNING ~ USE SPOILER TAGS WHEN NECESSARY.
    DO NOT GIVE SOLUTIONS. GIVE HINTS ONLY.

    Depends on the path you take to get where I am, but its about level 21 or 26 (I know one area where you can "skip" 5 levels). It's the level with wooden alphabet blocks. I also have some pseudo Hebrew writing from 2 different pages that I still haven't figured out yet.
