12 Hidden Keys
« on: September 08, 2010, 09:17:35 pm »
From the ancient scrolls of Krakow Sam:

I. Many years ago when the forum was young, and there was but ONE true forum theme (and its name was called Babylon), a great evil didst arise in the swirling maelstrom of the Spore General forum.
II. Though none knew from whence it came, or its nature, it threatened to do great injury to the forum, and the people were greatly afeared.
III. and the people didst throw up their arms and didst flail in vain at the 'report to moderator' button, but no moderator could stand against the evil.
IV. and it came to pass that the evil threatened to encroach on all, forever tarnishing the internets like a dark squall.
V. When all seemed at its most desperate, 12 mighty heroes arose, under the leadership of one called Krakow Sam, who was a pretty cool guy.
VI. and all the girls were like 'I saw him first' and the prophet spake "theres plenty of me to go around baby"
VII. anyway, where was I?
VIII. Oh yes, the 12 heroes arose, and didst battle(eth?) long and hard, and drove back the evil until it was once again confined to a single thread, but they could not destroy it.
IX. and so it came to pass that the heroes all forged mystical keys of all hues and artistic styles... also theres one thats just a photo of a real key... but I digress
X. Taking their keys they locked the thread, that the monster may never be released, and scattered their keys across the forums so that a hero whose heart is true and whose loins are almost as fruitful as Krakow Sam's might one day unlock and defeat the great evil.
XI. and that guy would get some sort of certificate, and everyone would get to call him KEYMASTER SUPERIOR, and a tickertape parade be thrown in his honour.
XII. This is the word of Prophetmaster General Krakow Sam. May your days be joyful and your house be visited with FIVE TONS OF FLAX!


It did please the gods of fortune to strike down the ultimate attempts of all who would seek out the magical keys, though. The new council, formed of both those who came after the ancient ones and their surviving predecessors, resolved to once again scatter a mysterious set of keys about the pages of the forum. The great evil was no longer the indomitable threat of the past, and if it should be fair that the forces that be grant the keys to liberate it upon the universe, it would be so. The masters were chosen, and granted the right to forge their keys and scatter them across the forum, leaving clues that only the most worthy would find use in pursuit of.
 
Keymasters of the Second Order: (Forged)

Oviraptor the Egg Dino
Krakow Sam the Polish Cowboy
Patman33 the Sticker
Brandonazz the Gay
Inkling the Suit
Daxx the Polemical
Gec the Lizard
Celdur Something Not Dutch Dammit
LadyM the Belle
Cobra the Snake
Mr. Wizard the Archmage
Gauphastus the Canadian

Quoth the Prophet Sam:

It would be unwise to refuse the position of keymaster, but if you wish to be lifted of responsibility simply post and a replacement keymaster will be found... eventually.

Clues:

Ovirapator: Spanking the monkey is endless fun!

Krakow Sam: In the fourth era the Dark Mother used the Elder Key to open the way for the Elder Race.

Patman33: Really, it's not that big of a deal. It's just posts.

Brandonazz: The key is found where one can see Europe as I once did.

Inkling: It's not under my straw hat, but you're getting warmer.  What day is scarier than Halloween?   :-\

Daxx: Necromancy is best fought with Image Macros and Pulp Fiction references.

Mr. Wizard: Made of a thousand words, no one spoke the magic three.

Celdur: Solving puzzles doesn't have to be hard.

LadyM: Lucy in the sky with diamonds.

Gauphastus: Those are some hot tunes, yo.



If you think you've discovered a key, contact its master that you might know that it is authentic, and not reveal it to others. You will receive public praise upon confirmation! If you reveal it publicly, you will be declared a loser douche bag and shunned forevermore.

If you find my key, send me a PM so I can make sure you actually found it and didn't just brute force your way to it.

NO SPOILING KEY LOCATIONS! WHEN YOU FIND IT, IT'S OUR LITTLE SECRET!

I don't understand. Is the key an actual key or is it a post that has the related clue?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

It should have the relative shape of a key. That is, a handle and a long, central shaft.

Sooooooooo....... Wait...... Is there a picture of a key then? I find it hard to play a game where I lack a grasp as to what I am even doing...

Well, Brandon and Ovi were able to find my key.

Like I said, you'll know it when you find it. Mostly because I say that you found the key. :P

All we had to go on was the clue, eropS. In some post, somewhere, there is something that you will recognize as the key.

Find the post with the clues.

Right, I understand that you have the same clue I do. However, you also know what to look for.

Is there like, an example of an older key or something so I can get a grip on this? I'm not usually this stupid but I don't even have an inkling as to what I am to find :\

I'm pretty sure I found it, I just PMd Patman.

I have a feeling it's the old one though.

Daww, I thought I'd get to hide one again.
Ah well. In any case I suppose I should start looking soon.
This should be fun!
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Me finding it probably proves that finding these keys is entirely too easy.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Even better!

Also, Sam and Wizard have forged and hidden their keys.
