Hello,

We are looking for highly intelligent individuals.

However we will not find you.
You, will find us.

To do this we have devised a puzzle. This puzzle will take you from checkpoint to checkpoint across Emerald. However, you will need to work out the location of each checkpoint with the clues given at the first ,then, each subsequent checkpoint.

There will be a substantial prize/opportunity for the first 3 pirates who make it to the final checkpoint, that is, if anyone makes it.

We are going to tell you the following:

There is a three hour time limit.
The number of checkpoints is in single figures.
The party begins on Wednesday at 12.30pm Game time. (1930 UTC)
This challenge is an individual one.
Anyone working in a team will not make it.

We will be watching.

Most of you will not make it.

We look forward to meeting the few who do.





regards,

Cicada 3301

Good job with the puzzles mate, sadly I wasn't able to solve the final one, but I hope other people were. Hope to see more events coming from you!

As discussed- this would be a great Global Event if it gets off the ground. The events workshop place is a great place to post if you're looking for coordination, planning and ideas.

I enjoyed this event and look forward to the next!

Despite many clues and many whispers no pirate has completed the cicada 3301 (2017) puzzle.

We can only conclude that there are no highly intelligent pirates on the Emerald Ocean...

...perhaps we will look elsewhere.

A reliable source has informed me that many have moved to the newly discovered Obsidian ocean. Perhaps you should consider relocating your efforts there.

...If you haven't already been working on doing so, of course. You probably have.
