If it ends where it begun. Does it means that Syme reference in the picture is valid does it?
What reference to Hugh Syme?




If it ends where it begun. That was the first clue (if I am not mistaken)

That picture leads me to think that probably we will know the artwork and title of the new album when the TH ends

OK done! (With a little help from our friends...)



That was a hard, yet fun puzzle. :)

Letter is added, what's the password though? And does anyone know what to do next or where to input the master code?

What's that symbol I marked in red?

It doesn't appear on the original picture

Pass was "OurNewWorld!". :) Freddy couldn't explain it better in his message, so have a look!

Looks like next week will be something!

That's a letter 'V'. Every puzzle piece has a letter somewhere, you just need to look for them.

First one was a 'T' (see first page of the thread), but once Freddy changed the pictures, it became a 'D' (which you can see on your post).

You should now have all images!

But you're missing a key part : how to decode this? (and no, it is not an anagram)

The final puzzle url will be given out next week. With this will also be the final puzzle.

The final puzzle will be hard, but should be solvable by all with logical elimination skills. And; only the first to solve it will get full entry to the prize! And it's up to him or her to share whatever he finds in there.

But don't worry, there will be a consolation prize for the rest of you. Plus everyone will be able to enter into a competition to win some nice mystery boxes of DT loot.



GOOD LUCK, and thanks for playing!

Freddy Jacobi

and my guess is that we have to enter the master code at the URL that will be given out next week (which will be easy for us because we compiled the code already)

I really hope whoever finds it first shares whatever it is. This whole stuff is way too crazy for me to even try. xD

Yes. To anyone who will find it first: please share!

I thought the same thing before I started playing. You learn a lot! :) You should try the next one.

If it's the album title / cover art / video of a new song or whatever, it would probably be the first time that the announcement would come from a random fan that solved a puzzle.

Think how cool it would be... "After a fan solved the final in a long line of riddles on the DT forums and social media, and the rumors that followed, we can confirm that indeed our latest album is called like this and will be released on this date" :metal:

So just one week to go? The hype is REAL!  :metal

Max Kuehnau

Yes, not long now though.

Here's a short summary of the hunt, in case it comes in handy.
I learnt a lot while playing, so I decided to list every tool/knowledge/games involved in the hunt as well.

Thanks! Looking at the list, I'm amazed at how little I knew of all that before joining the party; you guys and the people at Discord taught me a lot.

and I'm quite surprised about how many of my ideas that I contributed were actually used. Didn't think that would happen. Of course Sebastiàn had a lot to contribute as well, which I value greatly. EDIT: I'm so ready for the master puzzle this week. Not long now.

And then the final solution of the grand hunt will be......

What if for continuity's sake, they named the new album "My Ass And Balls"


Someone photoshop that  :lol


Btw, what happened to the old "make a fake new album cover" tradition? I miss that  :'(

RMGadelha

Just two days left! HYPE TRAIN AT FULL STEAM!  :metal

gzarruk

But we should start getting clues tomorrow, right?

RMGadelha

I suppose so, though I'm still pretty much confused about how it all works xD. The result of the last puzzle was posted Saturday, that's why I'm thinking we'll be getting the final result this Saturday.

rab7

The result was posted Saturday because that's how long it took to solve it.

The one before that was solved within hours of posting.

It's conceivable that if the puzzle is posted tomorrow, we could have the answer as early as tomorrow night.
