#222

All of those books are in General Research - Room 315 at the library.


#223

@Endri No offense taken my friend


#224

Haha great work everybody. Not even an hour in and we solved it! Teamwork at its finest.

Oooorrr not :smiley:


#225

So, the number for Bookmans was 561, yes? Unfortunately this book has 200 pages according to amazon.


#226

And here I was thinking we were gonna be up all night with this!


#227

page 5, word 81?

or page 58 word 1


#228

The Encyclopedia of the Unexplained: Magic, Occultism, and Parapsychology - Richard cavendish, 304 pages, our number is 434

#231

So the numbers and directions are still a bit of a question


#232

434= pg 4 word 34 or pg 34 word 4
498= pg 4 word 98 or pg 49 word 8
177= page 1 word 77 or page 17 word 7
561= page 5 word 61 or page 56 word 1

this is a classic code. There was one like this in one of my Nancy Drew books i read as a kid.


#233

I guess we can roll with that for now, and see what we get in the books tomorrow. Try all the possibilities.

Hopefully I won’t leave to get stuff for a friends birthday party before 10, I would like to help a bit


#234

So… as @Eaves would say… you guys sorta murdered that. Great work. (Also, this puzzle was probably a lot harder in 1986 sans Google.)


#235

Hey guys, did anyone notice The Forest is back?


#236

Aye been back most of the day. hope we find some idea on his path soon/


#237

It’s changed. Not just how it looks, but I swear there are some new options, and the “you got it wrong” ending is different too. Before it was just like “Incorrect, refresh the page and try again” but now it says “you have reached the end of the forest” and sends you back to the book of briars main page.


#238

And here I am, showing up to the party late, red bulls in hand, and lots of string… to you know, show how everything it connected. Whats left to do? Figure out how the numbers relate?


#239

The directions are still a big question mark.


#240

The numbers could be Page, Paragraph, Word as well, thats pretty common… Although I am hesitant about 177… First pages don’t really have a lot of print on them
