I wanted to do a little Easter egg/scavenger hunt for Easter, but just never got around to it (and I wasn’t sure how). msjanny did a little puzzle, so here’s a scavenger hunt of my own.

hints
1 ⋆ “From the depths of the woods where the wind originates
To the field where alone stands an elm tree
Floating, sofly embracing, it is going
Over there is the pathway of wind”
— Path of the Wind > Fescue
2 ⋆ Math time!
a + 92 = 226
a * 92 = 12 328
What number is a?
— 134
3 ⋆ 92, 134
Kuro, Plutia pets
— “black cloud”

4 ⋆ “black cloud”
Taleif’s black sheep “115”
5 ⋆ 115

important info
⋆ Custom CSS must be turned on.
⋆ There’s a lot of looking through villagers and some offline
⋆ A computer isn’t necessarily required, but may make some parts a little easier.
⋆ There are 6-7 parts? I can’t count....
⋆ Feel free to work on your own, in small groups, or as a collective. If you are in small private groups, please let me know so I can work out prize numbers!
⋆ If you post your thoughts, theories, everything on this forum, contribution points are given.
⋆ Be sure to make note of anything you deem important! Some parts come into play later on.

prize pool
prizes if enough players

⋆ There are three tiers of prizes:
— gold: first three people to solve the puzzles (with steps/proof)
— silver: users who made important points made
— bronze: 1 000FC will be given for every post working towards the goal.
⋆ Feel free to request things not listed on the document, but I can’t guarantee I’ll have them.
⋆ Gold and silver tier prizes will only apply when the player count exceeds five.
(more may be added later)

The first hint seems to be a lyric from Pathway of the Wind.
If I knew anything about Totoro, I'd know where to go from here, but I've never watched it. x)

Edit:
See, I'm a bit curious about the villager Lyrique, but I can't seem to find anything on their profile...

You’re heading in the right direction.

The first hint is from Pathway of the Wind and you don’t really need to know anything about Totoro to continue for I haven’t watched it either.

(And if I’m being honest, I forgot about Lyrique. So no, it’s not on their profile.)


I’ll start giving out more hints after more people join. (Don’t really want to walk just one person through this you know?)

Thought maybe it had something to do w/ the track number (11), but there doesn't seem to be anything special on lunafin's profile.

(btw, your profile is very hard to navigate when screen width is < 1080px)


is it just a naming scheme to keep track of villagers? idk

edit: [redacted]

edit:
.footer covers the pagination on this profile, btw. throw in position: relative; z-index: 1; or something.

edit: profile with "path of the wind" embedded in the description

a + 92 = 226
a * 92 = 12 328
What number is a?
a = 134

A hint would make it blatantly obvious, but if you keep going through villagers, I’m sure you’ll find it u.u
edit: nvm you found it

(Eep I’m sorry! It works decently well on my phone..)

That was to keep track of how completed their profiles were, so that’s not really important to this game.

That comes into play a lot later (edit it out please?)

I found Kuro has their pet at 134 affection, and Plutia has theirs at 92. The names are Nuage and Noir. Nuage Noir is a song written by Noirhaus.

Edit: Or maybe it has something to do with 1046 and 627?

You’re correct that it has to do with Kuro and Plutia’s pets

The names of the pets combined is black cloud. Does it have anything to do with Talif and his black cloud sheep named 115?

Is it Kordelia's Oceandome House which is at 115/115?

It’s not

I found this post by concatenating the numbers (1046627). The star is a link.
Oops double post

yeah, I'm stumped! don't know enough about flight rising to do anything other than check all the dragons in your lair and ctrl+f for 115.

/news/115 doesn't contain anything interesting. Post & thread #115 are long gone from beta. Item 115 is the sky rock, which fills me with great fear given that they seem to be the new soup. Villager and user 115 don't seem to be of note. Idol entry 115 was probably removed for breaking rules because it doesn't exist (either that or the submitter withdrew).

I don't think this has anything to do with lottery 115 or paintie 115...
I've checked what feels like everything on site with a plainly accessible id number in the 115 range. D:

If this is still going, I'm trying to work on the 115, but am also kinda at a lost like msjanny

However, I did find that Emera's bio happens to be 115 words long with 654 characters, I think that might be wrong tho lmao XD
