Lost At Sea
Lost at Sea - A Twin Dragons Event.
(All diary entries posted, alone, in THIS thread.)

Avast! While out pillaging today with me motley crew, I accidently knocked me hearty, Kgeo, off the helm of the vessel! I dived in after him, but couldn't save him from being carried off by the waves. Who knows where hes gone!

Upon reboarding my vessel, I turned around and ported. And low and behold, what do I find on the floor? An extract from Kgeo's diary. It read something like this:



The only problem is that I forgot about his love of riddles and puzzles! I don't think I'll be able to do this on my own. Actually, that's a good idea! If you guys can help me decipher his hidden clues , I might just be able to find him! I think I have an idea wheres hes heading with this one, so I'll get after him!

If I know Kgeo, he will do his best to return to Turtle Island, and our home. But where to start? without a compass, hes bound to get lost somewhere! I'd best get after him, and get him home soon!

If you guys can work out the riddle in his diary, then send your answer to twin-dragons@hotmail.co.uk , and I'll go check! He should tell me which island he wants to go to next somewhere in there. It'll probably take me a few days to get there though, but if I find something there I'll post it here ASAP!

Oh, and to all those pirates that help me, I've got a few goodies lying about! Ya see, as I need to find Kgeo as fast as possible, I will give 9 points to the first person that gives me the right answer to each of the riddles, 6 points to the second, and 4 points to the third. Every correct answer after that will be awarded 1 point a piece. Im sure he'll be travelling about a bit though, so I expect he'll visit alot of islands before i find him again, so there will be plenty of chances to score points! When I've finally discovered Kgeo, I think I may be able to dig up some prizes for the people that score highest over the whole search:

1st place: One war brig, the Open-minded Ling!
2nd place: 20,000 PoE
3rd place: 10,000 PoE
4th-10th: 1,000 PoE, and entry to the lucky dip to win a sand dollar!


Anyways, that's enough talking! Hold on Kgeo, I'm coming!!

(Note: The puzzles and riddles featured in this event will all spell out an island in the midnight ocean. Also, the puzzles featured will be of varying difficulty, so if you cant work out one, check back for the next! Best of luck to all that enter, and a new puzzle should be posted every monday!)

Re: Lost At Sea
Ahoy all! In order to keep this event neat and tidy, ive created a seperate thread purely for the diary entrys. Please keep the thread clear of questions, to make it easier to locate each entry!!

The thread is here , so just check here for any new entries I may have discovered!

Also, i have changed the lay out slightly, and the event will now be updated every monday, at 9pm BST (British Summer Time) and we will be exepting answers until 8.59pm the following monday. I have updated the original post to include this.

The event will run for a total of 10 diary entries, and therefore 10 weeks, ending on the 20th of November. I feel this gives people enough time to ponder each entry, and will also allow people that miss the first 3/4 puzzles to catch up and play along.

The second entry will be posted, in the diary thread linked above, on the 25th september.
Now then, back to the hunt!!

Edity Edit: And aye, twas posted a few days previous, but i had a few kinks to iron out before i thought it was ready for public. Sorry for any confusion caused!

Re: Lost At Sea
Kgeo was indeed going to Beta island, as was indicated by the numbers used within the text:

2 leagues = 2 = 2nd letter of the alphabet = B
5 hearties = 5 = 5th letter of the alphabet = E
20 years = 20 = 20th letter of the alphabet = T
1 pirate = 1 = 1st letter of the alphabet = A

Answer = BETA

As it stands, we have recieved 2 correct answers:

1 st - Bieyen - 9 points
2 nd - Ceylon - 7 points

The next clue will be posted in the clues thread in due course...

Edity edit: I know that the next clue is slightly later than origanally planned, but I'm busy making it extra tricky :p

Re: Lost At Sea
Could you post as you get each response rather than only telling us at the end of the week? Only, I'd like to know whether I was at least second to hand in my answer sheet for the second riddle!

Cocodude is officially dead, presumed missing. Feel free to search for him under other names on Sage though.

Posting after every entry is submitted will take a lot of time, and needing to be checking the e-mail address every 20 mins or so. It is much easier for us to write the list at the end of the week.

Re: Lost At Sea
Your job is to find what islands I am on. There is internet connections on all islands. Question is? Where am I?

EDIT: Changed Oceans to Islands, as only on midnight.

Re: Lost At Sea

Re: Lost At Sea
Don't worry matey, they will vary in difficulty as the weeks go on. If you can't do this one, wait till the next and have another go.

One day left for the second clue...

but if i dont get this one a have less chance of winning the prize dont i?

Re: Lost At Sea
It depends really. I've tried to set the points awarded to be fair, in the way that the first person to respond gets a nice points advantage, but not so much that other people are left out of the race. So answer the next Clue fast enough, and you'll get enough points to make up for the missed chance.

Simple, really....

Re: Lost At Sea
Ok guys, we are accepting no more entries for the second diary entry. the correct answer was, of cause, ENDURANCE island.

This was found by taking the first letter of each sentence, and solving the anagram they formed.

The third entry is ready to be posted, so expect that to be realised on time (7pm BST.) Anyone that could'nt work out this clue, dont lose hope! There are still a total of 8 more entries to be posted, so there are PLENTY of chances to score extra points!!

I also feel this will be a good time to post the current leader board. The top 10 are as follows:


1 st - Bieyen - 18 points
2 nd - Ceylon - 12 points
3 rd - Onelove - 4 points
4 th - Dbavirt - 1 point
4 th - Macaroonny - 1 point
4 th - Yellowshanks - 1 point
4 th - Angeletta - 1 point
4 th - Whedonella - 1 point
4 th - Jnifr - 1 point
4 th - Cam - 1 point
4th - Budclare - 1 point
4th - Zaychik - 1 point


Best of luck with the nest clue guys....Answers will be accepted until the 9th of october.

Edity Edit: If I have gotten any of the above names wrong, or have a typo in any of the names, just PM me and I'll fix it as soon as possible!

Anyways, good luck all...may the force be with you...

Re: Lost At Sea
OK, last weeks clue was indeed Nu island, as these are the letters the native left out of his sentences. (i.e, whenever he replaced a letter, or missed a letter out, that letter was either N or U)

The current scoreboard stands as follows:

1st - Bieyen - 19 points
2nd - Ceylon - 16 points
3rd - Onelove - 13 points
4th - Dbavirt - 7 points

2 points -

Zaychik, Cam, Budclare, Whedonella, Angeletta

1 point -

Toinette, Brassbeard, , Meilin, Xiaoban, Macaroonny, Yellowshanks, Jnifr, Feylind, Drunkenjoe, and Birchle

Once again, good luck with the next clue!
Chaosdragon (Who, incidently, is STILL looking for Kgeo!)

Edity Edit: Once again, any typos or mistakes I've made please PM me, or tell me in game! (But keep the email address free for entries!)

Oh no! I've dropped me diary entry before I could finish it. Now Choasdragon will easily know where to look for me.

By time he has read this, I will be gone, into mysterious lands.


**I wish you all good luck in NOT finding me!!
