Congratulations to those who solved the 7th Age puzzle. You've all received entries into the Grand Prize draw. The Bookmark winner will be announced soon.
The following is a spoilerific description of how the puzzle was solved....
Posted in the initial topic post was an image of the KI device from Uru followed by the sentence "Meet me at 61028.55.-80" and a KI number 2566853. I had previously posted that this puzzle would be an Uru marker game so that people could prepare an avatar if need be so, even if people had not seen that, it was pretty obvious that this was said marker game. When I had time to be in Uru I could be found at the posted coordinates, ie the balcony over looking the chasm and rope bridge near the top of The Great Stairs, and I was able to send players the game. Twitch and Renzey also took up post after they had completed the puzzle to help out. Alternatively I had sent the game to Magic Bot and players could get the game from it.
The first marker was to be found just nearby and stated that there were seven more markers to be found throughout the city. Each marker was a clue in the form of a riddle that would lead you to another marker in one of the Ages. They were as follows:
#1 Round and round it goes, Where it stops the Maintainer's marker knows. - Gahreesen
#2 There are ruins in a tree, I'd fall down if you were me. - Kadish Tolesa
#3 A note on a bed, You should mind your head. - The Cleft
#4 There are Quabs on the wall, but it's only rain that will fall. - Eder Kemo
#5 At the top of a ladder, That's inside a tower. - Ahnonay
#6 Much time has elapsed, And a sink hole has collapsed. - Er'Canna
#7 The sun spins around, But I am underground. - Teldahn
The Age markers also contained further riddles which would in turn lead you to the numbers that made up the answer for this Age's puzzle. They were as follows:
#1 We found this lizard in a cave near the surface.
This lizard has acidic saliva.
This entry is numbered on a Journey that's drawn,
One that starts in the tubes made by lava.
---This referred to the Map of Aitrus that was published along with the Book of Ti'Ana. This text is from the entry labeled with a number three
---Answer = 3
#2 In my gallery are numbers,
But the coloured ones are best
Though all of them repeated
One's less frequent then the rest.
---This referred to the weights and levers puzzle clue in the Kadish Gallery. You needed to take only the coloured numbers and count them to find which one occurs the least.
---Answer = 1
#3 Matches in a safe,
Try not to start a fire.
Three numbers you need to open it,
But the first's all I require.
---This referred to the safe puzzle in the cabin on Myst Island. The code to open the safe is 7,2,4. The answer is the first of these numbers.
---Answer = 7
#4 In the class of five a letter's repeated.
But it's also a number if you know what to do.
Once you've removed the second digit
What remains is that which is due.
---This referred to Gehn's schoolroom in the village in Riven. Around the wall of the classroom are various plaques featuring the D'ni alphabet. An artist's mistake has one of the letters displayed twice, ie "ts". This matches the D'ni number 20. Then all you needed to do was remove the second digit.
---Answer = 2
#5 It opens and shuts.
When spinning around,
It looks at you in colours
How many do expound?
---This puzzle referred to the eye symbols found on the spinning domes in Riven. The question was how many of them are exposition for the colours puzzle.
---Answer = 6
#6 Catherine's home is five by five,
Yet her Prison's only one.
The village island is eleven.
Count the Survey and you're done.
--- This puzzle also referred to Riven. Riven's islands were divided up into 25 squares, ie a 5x5 grid (which for the fire marble puzzle are divided further into another 25 squares). The islands separted into segments made up of these squares. Prison Island is one square, Village Island is eleven squares. For the answer you needed to count how many squares Survey Island was made up of.
---Answer = 4
#7 King Kerath then abdicated
Gave up his throne, resigned.
Great Lords took on the mantle,
How many were assigned?
---This was a D'ni history question. After a long succession of kings, King Kerath abdicated his thrown and appointed a council of Great Lords chosen from the Major Guilds to govern D'ni. How many were assigned?
---Answer = 5
Placed in the intitial clue order the answer for the 7th Age puzzle was: 3172645
I hope you all enjoyed this puzzle and congratulations to those who solved it.
