We went up to the Whitelight to check out the rumours of Trolls and found what looks to be like a GM made Troll Fort with the remains of a battle between freedom guards and the trolls! We had a blast clearing the trolls and got a little bit excited and busted the gate down to take a look around inside. Just wanted to let you all know it is well worth a look and to thank the GMs for putting on such an interesting storied event.
5 warriors went to the white light today to investigate the troll issue. The problem is absolutely insane, after a long battle we killed about 300 of the buggers.... and made only a small dent in the army. Nevertheless, let these pictures serve as a warning for the army to retreat or suffer more losses.
(apologies for jumps in quality. The poor ones are taken from my potato, while the others are taken by Saviina)
Giant pile o' corpses courtesy of Arivald, Danky, Hermann, Jollyxgiant, Saviina, and Mr Clubby (The troll that helped us genocide his own kind) The only reminder left is the piles of now troll-less clubs scattered among the roadside.
There are still a ton leftover as of this post, go nuts and teach them a lesson. And also bring a shield and a ton of cotton, you'll need it.
Checked the forums and found this - "The trolls left some clues around the fort.", so i instantly packed up my stuff and rode to the WL along with Settler, we found Vitez killing off the remaining trolls. We searched the fort and found 4 signs (there could be more) with the following messages:
The signs did contain the numbers, so i keep this order, we didnt find a (5)..+ yet. After some playing arround we found out its actually encoded with caesar cipher.
Heres the translation + the used caesar cipher code:
caesar cipher, 23: (1) our kinf, our true leader caesar cipher, 19: (2) he will return with the power of the three caesar cipher, 03: (3) when the sun kisses the horizon caesar cipher, 08: (4) on the second day of the month
(1) Kinf - trolls cant spell after all
(2) the 3 mystic gems, or the 3 original gods(but rather gems reference)
(3) If the sun is sol: Rises in the Northwest at 04:30 and sets in the Southwest at 19:30 .
(4) It is 11:30:13 on day of the Wurm in week 4 of the Raven's starfall in the year of 1003. 6 Ingame days till "second day of the month"(next one ingame) or dunno if rl, which would mean alot more days to wait
Spoiler Warning, if you dont want to get spoiled, make sure to follow the latest clues!
"where the first human touched the ground" "the gem is hidden"
"at the feet of giants" "hidden where it all began"
(tl;dr at the end in case you just want the spoilers )
Heres my Story:
After Halvardr scouted New Hope(Novus) and didnt find any clues it struck me, "where the first human touched the ground", i need to travel to Liberty. Since i never been to Liberty i got greatly lost, found my way to the White Light and traveled south and stumbled upon Genesis. I stayed for a while and while exploring this awesome city, i stumbled upon a history museum, in which i learned the first town, was New Town, "hidden where it all began". So i grabbed all my stuff and kept exploring, i dont use any maps for exploring and i dont ask for the way either (waystone/roadsystem), i found Haven and many more great cities and villages. And after a long journey i found New Town, thanks to Snidors clue i just kept looking for pine trees along the shore. I kept looking for giants, "at the feet of giants", and found 2 giants watching over New Town Bay. But i was too late, the trolls were faster, we are doomed, the gem is gone. I just found a warning: "New Hope will be mine!"
