Day Two - "The Stone Tablet"

 

Avalani, daughter of the renowned gardener Gustav shunned life amongst the flowers to follow in her brother "Tim the Wizard"'s footsteps, although she wasn't as interested in Fire Strikes. Little did she know where this path would lead; certainly not to years of research into a non-functional portal located at the Clan Camp. She just couldn't shake the feeling that it was somehow significant.

 

All knowledge of the portal had disappeared into history and legend. Some say it was actually part of a magic mirror that was smashed after Guthix asked if he was the most beautiful in the land, while others thought that maybe the famed artist Goldy Andsworthy had created it centuries ago. But how does this tie into Avalani's request for help? You shall soon see...

 

Congratulations on solving the puzzle I gave you, I'm impressed that you managed to solve it so quickly. You are clearly the person I'm looking for to help me!

 

It's been three weeks since I was given this strange tablet and I'm still no closer to understanding the meaning behind the text shown. It was given to me by a most peculiar stranger. All they said to me was "Justice through his judgement". Useless really, why can't people be more direct? Why is there a need to be so mysterious?

 

Anyway, to the task at hand; here is the text shown on the stone tablet that I've transcribed for these 'forums'. Can you make anything of it? I certainly can't.

Ruin Specialist and Clan Historian

 

35jguvr.jpg

Across I1 (5 letters) - A wooden way of making food

Across A3 (4 letters) - A miner necessity for transporting

Across K8 (3 letters) - A legal travel document

Across I10 (3 letters) - I hear you really have to work for this vessel

Across A6 (3 letters) - Initially an internal document that helps

Across I3 (5 letters) - A stone who sells cold chocolate

Across C2 (4 letters) - Forward is not how you wear this cape

 

 

Down K5 (7 letters) - The skill that never was

Down G3 (5 letters) - Rune, Dragon, God, all warriors need one

Down D1 (3 letters) - A cradle's owner in start of a disaster

Down E5 (6 letters) - I hear a musical piece that has a ball

 

 

Oh, I almost forgot to mention; when I was examining the tablet I had a strange vision. Perhaps it will mean something to you. I'm quite good with a paintbrush, if I do say so myself.

For the sake of ease and posterity putting answers together here:

 

Across I1 (5 letters) - Grain

Across A3 (4 letters) - Cart

Across K8 (3 letters) - Law

Across I10 (3 letters) - Urn

Across A6 (3 letters) - Aid

Across I3 (5 letters) - Rokuh

Across C2 (4 letters) - Back

 

 

Down K5 (7 letters) - Sailing

Down G3 (5 letters) - Sword

Down D1 (3 letters) - Cat

Down E5 (6 letters) - Cannon

 

Highlighted words from that:

Down I1 - G-r-i- = Garlic

Down C2 - Br--d = Bread

Across C5 - --c-o---s > a-c-o-i-s = anchovies

 

Number of grid reference gives number of item.

Picture is obvious shows rune area of GE > Murky Mat is there > take items to him

Grain just doesn't make sense in my head because it's asking for a wooden way. Oh well. =X

Wow, did I already miss the first part of the clue fest? (Looks like it considering "Day 2") :(

 

[hide]Shot in the dark, but could it be "Grind"? You grind food using a wooden wheel or something? I dunno, real long shot lol. [/hide]

Grain makes sense if u view it in light of how the other clues work.

 

Way is another word for direction; eg you go that way/direction.

The direction of wood is defined by the grain of the wood.

Grain is used in making food

 

Most other clues split in two like tht as well

 

A miner necessity for transporting

A mine cart for miners, a cart as a form of transport.

 

A legal travel document

legal links to law

teleports are travel

travel document teleport scroll

 

Initially an internal document that helps.

Initially > intials

An Internal Document > A.I.D

That helps, to help is to aid.

 

A cradle's owner in start of a disaster

A cradle's owner > A Cat's Cradle

Start of a disaster > disaster = CATastrophe

 

I hear a musical piece that has a ball

I hear a musical piece > Canon is a type of musical composition.

Has a ball > Cannonball > Cannon has one of them.

etc.

 

Fits perfectly when reading the clues in tht disjointed cryptic vein. As they all have a duel meaning, but don't REALLY make sense as a whole.

cooked anchovies?

Know fair few did that.

Cooked anchovies = Anchovies

Raw anchovies = Raw anchovies.

 

Gone to Murky Mat NOT avalai(sp?)

That bit was kinda epic misleading since original post said you bring items to me, yet day 2 and we bring items elsewhere.

So I'm guessing since I missed yesterday's part, I can't do it anymore? :P

 

For some reason, I completely missed the fact it came out on 18th, not 19th lol.

You can start them at any time before the clue fest ends. Technically speaking, you can do them all the last day. The fun is keeping up with them as they progress.

They usually leave it open for a few days after the last clue for all the people who have been busy/all the lazy SOBs who just wanna be told the answers and make no effort to figure out the puzzles at all.

You don't get the rock in your inventory but you do have it.

You just go to ava lady and she takes it.

Grill makes more sense than Grain. I still don't see how that's wooden but a couple of these clues have been off.

 

Grain makes sense if u view it in light of how the other clues work.

 

Way is another word for direction; eg you go that way/direction.

The direction of wood is defined by the grain of the wood.

Grain is used in making food

 

That fits too but how is it a "way of making food"

 

Nvm, I'm just glad it's solved!! haha :mrgreen:

I still think the g word is grill...the explanation for grain is such a stretch it borders on the proposterous

I thought the answer was gnome.

 

Gnome cooking is the way of cooking.

 

Wood gnome is a type of gnome. You are all probably too young a comic strip by the name of Paulus the wood gnome.

Grain can be wooden in the sense of "wood grain", i.e. the way lines run through the wood.

 

Not that there's any connection between this meaning and food or cooking...

How does grill work at all?

Grill's don't have any relation to wood at all. You grill with electric appliance or charcoal barbeque.

 

The grain explaination fits in tidily with how the other answers form and is frankly less of a stretch than others. like initially > initials

 

Plus "make food" doesn't work with grill.

You cook food on a grill but you don't food with it.

Making implies mixing/forming something to cook.

 

Grain can be wooden in the sense of "wood grain", i.e. the way lines run through the wood.

 

Not that there's any connection between this meaning and food or cooking...

 

Aside from the fact all the clues seem to divide into two unrelated meanings.

 

And direction of the wood is decided by the grain.

direction = way.

Wooden way. > wood direction > grain of the wood.

 

And then the other half making food, grain makes food.
