1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    For those of you who didn’t participate in the event last year, here is a brief rundown of how it all works before we give you your first clue.
    • Each day a new “chapter” of the event will be posted here in this forum. This will continue the story and give you a selection of new puzzles to solve.
    • The first puzzle will give you the name of an NPC and a selection of items that you will need in your inventory to jog their memory about the event.
    • Once you’ve found the first NPC, they will give you a clue for the next NPC right away! But you will have to wait until the following day to get the puzzles for the items you will need to get that NPC to open up about the event.
    • The puzzles will get harder and harder over time, so if you think that one day’s clues were too easy you’ll find the latter ones much more of a challenge.
    • You will have to complete the days in order, but you don’t have to complete them on the day they are released. You will also have some time after the event has finished to ’catch up’ if you need it!
    • There is a reward for completing the Cryptic Clue Fest (and those who didn’t get last year’s reward will get it this year) but the *real* reward is having fun and the satisfaction of completing the puzzles!

    For the third person, tomorrow:
    would it happen to be someone in the Falador Party Room? I have no idea who it's describing, but I figured red party hat had something to do with it.

    Also, for any F2Pers doing Day 2, make sure you look at the third post on the thread because the clue talks about a location we don't have access to.

    The third day was probably the easiest in terms of figuring out the clue and collecting the items. Looks like my guess for the NPC for today was correct.

    Well, I didn't end up doing all of Day 5 on my own as I had hoped. Although even after finding the answer, I still have no idea how it was gotten (Key 1 and 3) - my numbers don't add up. How many gems and how many candles are there?

    I haven't done it yet, lol. I'll work on it later, probably going to get something to eat first.

    Well overall, it was a good event and it was fun to do something different. The only clue I didn't like was the fifth one because of all the counting and it wasn't clear what should be counted and what shouldn't be. At least they said that they won't do a clue like this again in the future.

    Just wondering what the clues were that led people to the author before the name was released...

    Looks good and thanks for posting it, but you messed up slightly on day 5. It's supposed to be
    4 fire runes, not 3.
