Some of the mods post something permanent on the main page that tells everyone to join our colony.

my mate emailed to me (after i asked him to join)



What does it mean - I just get this screen with a puzzle


'it is "the end" when Alpha, Delta and Omega are destroyed'

The first, fourth and last letters of the greek alphabet. What do I do?

then
Hooray I solved the challenge by checking some message board who had already figured it out the challenges seem to all be references: i.e. they are usually a quote out of a game or film or song or book, or a description of a character or place in a game movie song or book or something like that.

can you guy see the page that says

dcemu.co.uk Points

* Colonists:50

yeah i can see all that. must have been the same puzzle for everyone. When do we get a new one?

Did he tell you what the answer was?

I think when we get a new one we should post it on the board so we can bounce ideas round.

DS69, ive tried this so many times, i type play then join existing colony, put in that number, then put in all my details and type in the code that is there in red numbers, and it always says 'you need to go back and type the correct code'.

ptr.exe
April 15th, 2005, 16:23
Okay, sorry tried one more time and it worked fine for some reason, i can see the page that was described above. What was the answer to todays thing with the X's and Y's?

Hawq
April 15th, 2005, 18:15
Thatd be x, y, x, x, x, y it seems. A thought just hit, why is this in the xbox2 section?

ptr.exe
April 15th, 2005, 19:33
Hawq, its here because supposedly ourcolony.net is a marketing scheme by MS for Xbox 2.

Was x, y, x, x, x, y the answer? i thought it was the Q.

Hawq
April 15th, 2005, 20:28
I dunno, its all I saw there so I gussed it might be the answer, it was there last night still there today my brain will hurt if I think about it as theres no way to know. doesnt seem to be any way to attempt it or anythin though so.. makes me wonder when the next one is goin up

ok new one up any ideas?

http://www.ourcolony.net/images/challenges/ch1900222589.jpg

truth brings revelation

i notice that the word search on the wall (that looks too in focus) has the word "gamefind" in it

there is also a link to www.kristenrutherford.com on the pic

Well I just Joined out of curiosty and damn this puzzle is hard but I may be getting somewhere

This is what I've found

Kristen Rutherford played a few main characters in the ARG Halo 2 game, ILoveBees

Heres an interview
http://www.totalvideogames.com/pages/articles/index.php?article_id=7042

Heres the I love bees site
http://www.ilovebees.com/

The I love bees site has some freaky ass message when it loads and has a bunch of wav files (Not listened to most of them yet) and the site itself is pretty damn messed up

Heres the I love bees blog claiming that In early July, an AI named Melissa crash landed, badly damaged, onto the server that hosts my aunt's website. The AI tried to orient and repair itself. The result: It turned 'I Love Bees' into a holy mess.

http://ilovebees.blogspot.com/2004_07_11_ilovebees_archive.html

Little snippet from the blog

You're reading this, so I'll assume you've already witnessed the damage over on my aunt's web site. That's how you got here, right? (Unless your last Google search included the terms "honey," "SOS" and "WTF".) Hmm... now I'm actually curious to see what that turns up.)

Here's what turns up
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&c2coff=1&q=honey+SOS+WTF&btnG=Search

Thats all the info I got at the moment
BTW It could all be a trick to send me the wrong way but I'm gonna keep searching until my head explodes.

Edit: Head Goes Pop

DS69 the puzzle was a weird one, the second message didnt appear until the next day, afaik no one has figured the last 2 puzzles out. On any forum. rank 313

puzzle 16 was the pick of the fan with the blank lines in it



* Answer: Reset Reality
* Reasoning: This challenge was a picture challenge. Blank lines on the image formed a barcode that, when decoded, revealed a phone number. When called, an answering machine would play back the message "Reset Reality, message #512".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OurColony.net

someone must have worked it out... but they are getting very hard.

btw thanks to all that joined, we have 21 members now 440 points and ranked 269

btw ilovebees.com was the viral marketing campain for halo 2... so i don't think that has anything to do with it.

i think Kristen Rutherford site is a red herring because here phone number is on the site and people have been ringing her, and shes been saying that she is not involved in the new game + her site is down now
