No idea why he would be hands of bronze.


He is from California so his skin is sun kissed???? lol.

For some reason my brain has always thought of scissors when hand of bronze is mentioned. I think the bronze hand might just be just to make the poem flow well (and rhyme with polygons). Could be wrong of course but never felt that important who destroyed the old relic or recipe for the old relic.


Several have suggested that bronze was used because it rhymes with polygons. But what if polygons was only used because it rhymes with bronze?

Definitely possible. I just imagine it is easier to rhyme with bronze than polygons as odd as that may sound.

I tried a few other rhyming sites. Bronze is easier to rhyme with. Doesn't prove it, just figure if you are starting with one to get to the other polygons -> bronze is more difficult.

My first thought was the Colossus from clash of the Titans, he was filled with lava, were going to the infernal plane next probably full of lava right???

That’s bizarre. Doesn’t the transitive property mean that two words that rhyme with each other have the same number of words that rhyme with them? :blink:

Was the Colossus Of Rhodes made of bronze?

Edit: Yes it was. But I can’t see how that connects to anything here.

Got to thinking about this a bit more. Now take into context Druegar's sig. line.

"If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously."

In the image "First" is written in teal. He's made it clear that it is. So what "First" are we NOT to take seriously?

Is it the first letter in "First"?

If so, then that changes the whole first sentence to;

"Everyone thinks they know lie's answers."

So does that mean we have been given some misguidance and we need to figure out what is not true?

Or does this refer to the first portion of the original hint from the token.

Or even possibly does it refer to the first ingredient in the crafting of the Mystery Token? Being an old out of print token, I would suspect most of us do not have that first ingredient item and thus we wont need it. For example the Frost Short Bow you had to have a Ring of the Wood Worker. Unless Jeff reprinted it just for this year, I would doubt many of us still have one.

The capital letters spell ENHANCE. That is also the name of the file. Noodle noticed this back on page 4 right after it was posted. I think he's got the right of it.

yes we know about enhence. I think nothing is written in teal so you don’t have to worry. It is teal dots not teal writing.

First relic token
August 1st


I like August 1st, which also happens to be a new moon, and so a dark night. Druegar went to pains to point out that not all Dark Knights are male, and did so basically in response to nothing I could tell (no one had asserted maleness or said "he" of the Dark Knight in the immediately preceding posts).

The Charms of Transmorph weren't either, were they? Might just be part for the course for "surprise" treasure.

Could it be that because this is an image and has a transparent background that it is an overlay for some other map / image somewhere in TDb or in the forums? Possibly the 6 dots are alignment points or something.


This is just how the forums render images you click on, they pop up into a viewer with a transparent background. It's not specific to this image.

Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread .
If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously.
