    Default Green Gecko "Hints"

    Fellow Tormented...I'm just posting this to get all of the Green Gecko "Hints" in one spot. They'll all be ordered cronologically along with their respective page numers. Hope it makes things easier for everybody.

    Just a reminder that his posts "nine" and "ten" were to get 10 posts on the forum in order to PM someone. I didn't see those as hints of any kind.

    Default block headed

    yeah I was aware of that but figured it would still help to have those posts/page numbers up so that if somebody went back to look at the page they could see if there was anything that would have maybe infulenced GG to want to get to 10 so that he could choose his messenger.

    just wondering if anybody knows what GG was talking about with the post where he was "dissapointed"?

    If I play the role of Captain Obvious, I would say he was disappointed at no one being able to find the answer to the blocks, after he gave so many hints. Either that OR we could say that one of the "theories" that existed before he posted that was the way to reach the answer, but then we stopped working on it. I suggest an investigation.

    Hi EnSabahNur,

    Good idea to put all of GG's clues in one place. To understand more about the clue from 8/5/10, you have to read a little further down that page. Shecrab put the scrambled pieces of the message in the right order, which showed it to be a link to the Secret World Forum.

    Shecrab's post:

    Torment: the blocks

    I copied the message and photo GG posted at Secret World right before he deleted it. My post is here:

    Tell me more about that picture.
    Who the hell is him? Why is the image reversed and the Apple logo superimposed? GG posted it, so we have another piece of blocks, that remains unsolved. Letīs see al together and try to find coincidences.

    The Hunting of the Snark, by Lewis Carroll

    Interesting background image on this page about the Snark....


    So we still have a few hints to sort out:

    Shadow: A Parable (the line focusing on the door)

    Two Towers (after watching The Two Towers again last night, some mention is made of the Balrog and Shadow...)

    The End lyrics (again, focusing on the door)

    The Snark (absolute truth wrapped in absolute nonsense - don't be afraid to look at the wildest possibilities)

    Stoicism (though I do believe this was not so much a hint as it was said in response to the guy that was slagging GG - the one who was saying he plagiarised others, and would not actively participate in the forum, etc)

    Soul Candy (I'm sticking with the Bleach=Key Whitening reference)

    The "increased vigor" line seems more likely that he was getting reports from his page counter/stat tracker showing a flurry of activity on either the blocks page or the 404 Hell page, or perhaps his Thread Subscription reply notifications from Tweleve regarding the Blocks thread specifically.

    And whatever the "Seven" hints refer to. And no, it's not se7en

    Some thoughts:

    The door made by Corinnos is the blocks puzzle. It is also the end of the trail, hence The End reference.

    Two Towers: We are to focus on the section between the tallest/longest lines.

    The Snark: total nonsense and gibberish. Several puzzles so far have had gibberish answers. But we are looking for a "nonsense" word. A word that makes no sense, but is readable.
