cadfael - or Rohirric!!! (now look up "Eoarod" )

I'd post this in Tengwar or Dwarvish - but we seem to have realized funky fonts don't post well!!

Ohhhhhh!! I hope the next one is in Klingon!!!


How about Sumerian cuneiform scripts?


Oh, great, maybe we'll summon Gozer by accident...

Several people in the "what would you like to see" thread asked for a map that would let us quick-jump to a location, instead of having to click through multiple scenes to get there. Maybe we're getting one?

(I think this has been suggested before in this thread, but this is not the night to try complicated web searches from a US computer.)

You'd get the exact solution by putting all 3 words together on the same line and then running the phrase through Google Translate, but you were definitely close enough!

Well, you've definitely earned your badges today! We'll be back tomorrow with a fresh puzzle. But until then, with these clues in your casebook, I can't wait to see which directions you'll go in your speculation!

(This is still the speculation thread, right?)

I follow along and have had an idea or two but not nearly as smart as any of you out there...but I have been wondering...how do use use maps..or know which" direction" to follow? Use latitude and longitude? Is there something in any of the clues that we ( I say " we " like I'm part of the "solvers"...lol,) but something in a clue or upcoming clue that can lead us to the location - via- latitude longitude? Just a thought.

Good morning Team Trip P!!!!

An obscure clue? Aw come on we accomplished Greek and Azerbaijani, what else ya got? (Love the Gozer idea btw xD)

Edit: But of course I forgot to say: AWESOME JOB to all the smart fishies who solved the clues!!!!

HMMMM we COULD speculate on the status of some peoples parents marital status ( or lack there in) But as behooves us well behaved Master Detectives we shall honourably refrain.
How about we speculate that the game will definitely be using TV's or videos again?

I definitely think so, SabreQueen, because of the Paranormal Investigator posting! I'm sure we'll see at LEAST one of that in the game. More so of video than TV, probably.

If the ancient evil is Charles undead zombie brother, I'll just take it as a sign that his entire family is beyond saving.

The clue above is from a neighbor of my friend Georgia; she does not speak the king's tongue and she's one of Prince Caspian's 5 friends!

[b] I had another brainstorm...well more like an nagging intuition....I was stuck on the 'doc' word all day and then Hondo also mentioned it in another post...I know someone looked up all the possible meanings & etc...but I just did a basic google search of 'doc' and every single thing that came up was ...DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS. why I think this is important..I don't know...but I did have kinda a goosebump thing when I realized what I was seeing...thats all..I'm sure means nothing

Whoa, I'm a lobster now! I think that Department Of Corrections might be the right track. Since it seems as if we are not going to be anywhere in the U.S. I'm still hoping for Scotland as the place where this MCF is going to take place. Well that's all for now I'm off to bed. See you all in the morning.

Based on the sheriff station in the FB pics, I think the game will more than likely take place somewhere in the U.S.

Hmmmmm.....I've found that Sheriff isn't necessarily in the US.

Sheriffs can be similar to bailiffs in Ireland, Australia and Canada
Sheriffs are judges in Scotland
A Sheriff is a ceremonial position in England, Wales and India
(Thanks Wikipedia)

There are even more listings there. So......we may not be tied to the US by the word Sheriff on the picture.
