Come, come closer now.
No need to be scared, is there? Unless... Yes, unless your mind is not prepared.
Come, come. I will help you.
I will light your path, so in the mirror yourself you may see,
But before that, you must prove yourself to me.
Attunement to the dim blur of dark,
Perception of the subtle art.
Patience for the dawn to come
Wit for it all to sum.
Come to me, and I will point you to your first step.
Describe yourself, drawing one or two arrows on the provided diagram, starting from the centre pointing outwards.
Keep in mind, I'm expecting to receive:
Diagram solved by you, with the arrows
Explanation or reasoning for the solution you found
(optional) what you think this diagram means
Please refer to the "Scoring" section to see what I'm looking for.
To Begin - DEADLINE: 23rd March 2016
Contact me via forum PM as follows, and I will provide you with the diagram1. My reply to this marks the beginning of your quest time: Name:
Date Character was Created:
The answer is not the same for each participant. I will explain how the answer is determined at the end of the quest, for transparency. Currently, this is to be known by myself and the judges.
I will post hints every week. Each hint posted after the first one will decrease the score of participants who send their answer after the date it was posted on by 5/100. A total of 5 hints will be posted (in separate posts in this topic, to keep a clear track of date/time), including the first one, after which no further hints will be added.
