    On a hunch, I went back to warrebeek.com to see if it was still there; nothing but a blank html document - 'same with naturalbees.

    I don't understand why there's such a fuss over the site going down; the puzzle is still there and, in fact, was posted before any of the sites came back up. In relation to the bee-keeping and the alike; this is borderline snooping...Wasn't it concluded before that bee-keeping or anything to do of the sort has nothing to do with this trail? And that it was in fact simply something that Gecko holds some sort of interest in? Until there's any sort of clear link to bee's I'm entirely unconvinced...Respect ones privacy...

    To be honest, I always thought it was a part of the game - even if as misdirection - largely because the overlap between what we're doing with the websites in general and how that connects to the 'love of bees' (if you get my drift). But, given that the sites are down, I feel like it might be important to say that I really don't mean any harm by looking into it. I've just been doing a lot of backtracking lately, trying to understand the transition that happened between torment and tma, trying to figure out how much of what's happened in the past few months is deliberately planned and how much being made up as we go along, which I think this is important as we look for possible ways of solving the puzzle. You are right though - there is an element of this where the connections between gecko the person (whoever that is) and gecko the puzzle-maker get kind of blurry, and - especially given the history of the game - that's a line I'd rather not cross. Thanks for the reminder to remain respectful

    Those websites are entirely unrelated to Torment and TMA. They aren't even vague references to the puzzles.

    I suggest you forget about them and stick to deciphering the puzzle provided to us.

    I know the website is down but all of the information required for us to solve the puzzle is on the forum. We have the picture saved in various places and there are posts of it several times in this forum. There is no need to be, for lack of a better word, snooping about on unrelated websites. That is not what Torment is about nor is it what puzzle solving is about. If you truly wish to solve Torment then this is the only place you need to go. The TMA puzzle has no solution key of any kind, meaning the message within TMA may still herald an answer to further progression.

    However you know how it is, hope is the worst of evils.

    I feel somewhat apologetic towards Gecko considering the amount of effort that has been put into creating a new culling portal after the old one went down abruptly around the time of the discovery of these sites. If there is a path to follow through this puzzle then the likelihood of it existing is unknown considering it also might have gone now. But, there's nothing wrong with trying...Even if it's an uphill struggle.

    I'm expecting everything to go dark for a little while if the trail is still in motion, but I'm still trying.

    We have fell from Orion, fell from skies, fell Heaven... Now that we have lost Paradise, all that remains is Torment...

    Come back here just to see site down
    Gonna read Meristation (BTW, I'm spanish, feel free to ask for translations). As they started this hunt with (most of users) no previous knowledge, they look it all in a more simply way. They way (I think) it has to be done...

    ... I really don't know what to do now. Is it all over? Everything related to Torment has disappeared...
    This really isn't how I wanted this to go.

    Well, whatever ye souls intend to do, I shall maintain my hope, lest my torment end. A shard of the Sun swam past us today; it is always darkest just before the day dawneth.
