I'm not sure if this is going to work or not, but I've decided to give it a try. Basically, this is a thread I want to create to set up a squad to locate the Forest Fortress. We can post interesting methods to find it, and post any clues you find. Anyone can join. We can also try to interpret the clues together, to make this search easier. Time to get this started!

Clue #1:

Three wise men came out of the church,
but the first said "Nay, chaps. Why do
we fight like savages? Let's play a game.
I will hide five stones around this land,
and you will have to find them." The other
two agreed to the first man's game. The second
man found three of the stones six years and
fourteen days later, while the third man found
the other two five years and twelve days
later. The first man came down with a
terrible infection and passed on seven years
and ninety-six days after hiding the stones.
The forum ID is the difference.


Can we find the fortress?

Remember to keep this forum a secret, and if you can, post somewhere else (don't spam, of course) after posting here.

I think SNN was bsing it, I tried a couple of possibilities, and he never told us what we need to find the difference between.

That's always a possibility, except if he told us what to find the difference between, it would probably be way too easy.

Also, none of the forums on the main page were marked new, and all the secret forums I know of didn't have anything new, and the Forums tab was still NEW. Either I don't know of a forum, or the fortress does exist...
I think I may have solved that riddle. I took the days that it took the two men to find the stones, and subtracted the amount of days the man died from the first number, so what I got was this.
4041-2651=1390
1390 could be the ID, but knowing SNN it is most likely a way to keep people busy.


I've got three numbers:

Man 1 time:
2652.75 days

Man 2 time:
2205.5 days

Man 3 time:
1838.25 days
Remember that a year is actually 365.25 days)

I just wish I knew what this difference is of.

I've tried that before, it doesn't work. You can try yourself, you know.

And Kaizoman, I think you're thinking a little too much. XD

Nobody seems to be taking the stones into account...
Abandon hope, all ye who seek thy Forest Fortress. 'Tis but a place of legends and lore, to be searched for by many, but never found. Generations have hunted for thy mysterious land, but few souls have returned from their expeditions. Seek not the land which does not exist, for it shall surely be your doom.

--------------------
Your layout has been removed.
Let`s go by parts.

First, let`s gather the times.

(6 years x 365 days + 1 + 14)= 2205
(5 years x 365 days + 1 + 12)= 1838
(7 years x 365 days + 1 + 96)= 2652
The forum ID is the difference.

I have the next guess:

Man 2 time + Man 3 time - Man 1 time = 1391

Come on, let`s help to solve this.

Yes... but I don`t think S.N.N have that in mind at the moment

That is what I was thinking about, but I can't seem to get any good information on that.
I was thinking it was 447 from subtracting man 1's death from man 2's time, but that doesn't seem to be it. Now I am starting to think about leap years and how might they effect this or not.

Oh... my brain hurts. I think I might be thinking a little too much too.
I was on my calculator for 2 hours trying to figure it out. I just gave up, I got a negative number :/
Branching off a completely different way to find the fortress, I've been searching all the different forum IDs, starting from zero. Right now, I'm up to 11,162. No forest fortress in sight.

I've tried everything, and I can't find the ID.Free counters!
Oh god, are you kidding?
How much free time do you have on your hands?

I tried subtracting 1337(the FoS) from 2525(the valley fortress). I got 1188, and it didn't work. Somehow, we have to solve the riddle and find a difference between whatever, but what? and how?

It strikes me, it might just be a joke after all.
But knowing SNN, it definitly isn't.

Hmmm... I've got two questions...

1. Do forum IDs have to be numbers?
2. What if this "difference" has nothing to do with the numbers given, and with something else in the riddle (letters, words, etc.)?

Probably is using a program, actually. Not searching 11,000 times. :P

1) I think so.
2) Interesting theory...but what could it be?
starting at 11,162, i made it up to 11,515(manually, i might add). still no forest fortress.

--------------------
this is my sig. if you did not know that, why did you look at it?







Hmmm hoo ha ha ha...

Yes. I am in on the fortress. But you will be forever lost in the jungle! Hahahahaha!!!

Woo, 500 posts.

Hey, Noobish, what about making a program search for post IDs instead of forum IDs? If the Forest Fortress is real, somebody has to have posted there.

What if the posts show as restricted though?

Anyway, if Noobish can get around that, it might just work.Free counters!
