Whatever the outcome of the treasure hunt, it promises to be one hell of a ride. I love what they decided to do for the wait this time around! :metal

I'm a bit late to reply to this because my account needed to be activated, but I agree completely. It was I that found the images. It was an honest misunderstanding, and I am sorry. When I saw an image with one letter, and the hint that we needed to find the next URL, I assumed that we had to find more images hidden on the site to construct said URL. When I discovered the images sitting out in the open, that seemed to reinforce the idea that we were supposed to discover them, so I shared my findings. Now I understand that this was out of bounds, and it won't happen again. I apologize to Freddy Jacobi for making you redo the puzzles, and to everyone else for spoiling part of the surprise.

No worries.  Now that you and that other user posted, we understand what happened and that it wasn't malicious.  We appreciate the explanation.  Now let's get back to having fun with this!  :biggrin:

I personally can't keep track what we know vs what we're are allowed to know vs what is and is no longer valid. Sorry to say the balloon is officially deflated for me.

Pretty sure that it was only images that leaked prematurely and those images have been rendered invalid.There's no other info you're not supposed to know right now. As it stands there are two images that have been confirmed as solutions for 2 puzzles, and it's been confirmed that there's 16 puzzles. The final puzzle will require the solutions for all the 15 previous puzzles to solve.

It's also been confirmed that it will take a long time to complete the game - many weeks. As it stands, the puzzles have been given out with approx a week in between, so I assume it's going to be one puzzle per week.

All of that info was in the : https://vailrenovations84552723.wordpress.com/dream-theater-working-in-studio/  page.

So...

"The next puzzle will surely stump you."

Is this a reference to The Test That Stumped Them All? The "test" in that song is schizophrenia, right?

I don't know if this is connected, but I just found a Freddy Jacobi social media account that does not have a Freddy Jacobi username. In Instagram.

https://www.instagram.com/l3ke8uixajb/?hl=en

Maybe it is not Freddy Jacobi after all. Maybe it is the test that stumped us all. :lol

"Pay attention to my social media and look for the keyword “sparrows”.

This is still blank.  :lol

In Instagram when you enter any profile the name that it’s show at the top usually matches the user name in the case of that account what you see at the top it’s something completely different: I3k38uixajb

BTW, this profile follows 3 accounts:

- Dr Andy Khawaja
- Tyga / T-Raww
- UBRA Boats


Wonder if that means anything...

Thats just the same for me. My instagram account name is a derivate of my nick, but the name my account has is my real name. Nothing strange about that.

I just find the name very random compared to the account name. Again maybe this is nothing.

We can only wonder a few things, keeping in mind that sparrow thing ;
There’s birds in the art of Octavarium.
The ‘o” missing in “In The Presence of Enemies” is only because of twitter’s character limitation in the poll creation.
The poll is set to last for exactly three days ; this is not Twitter’s default poll length. By default, the length is one day, and it can be set to up to seven days. FJ set it to three for a reason...

Isn't it more likely that the sparrows refers to the lyrics of Pull Me Under? "Watch the sparrow falling gives new meaning to it all"?
