Okay... Does this structure have anything to do with the puzzle that leads to Unfooruman's fortress?

I'll leave the other question to someone else.

Fawriel suggests you adopt orphans and throw parties for random people. L33tz4n suggests solving puzzles and escaping from the island. Araches and Shuriken agree. Fooruman suggests the polka.

It takes at least four balloons to throw a party. Balloon levels are too low D=.

Fooruman thinks (AMAZING!). "Well, long ago there was me and this demon named Unfooruman. Me and him were enemies and he took over my island. The end." Fooruman sighs as though he just told a long story.

You don't want to throw the vial. When the time comes to use it, it'll be VERY obvious. I might put an item lock on it, like the Nocake.

You throw everything in your inventory item by item at the sphere. Nothing helps, but the spring bounces back and hits you in the eye.

Ubertob looks carefully at the CrazyT. It's quite odd, words can't really describe it. Maybe the color "drugs". You place it back in your intentory.

Radium and I were speaking last night, and he dropped a few hints that I just needed to put together. However, I am not completely sure about these theories.


Since I don't have my notes with me, I cannot answer this puzzle at this time.

Back home! And with my Whiteboard as well. n.n

Okay, don't lose me in this explenation.

Since I was speaking with Radium last night, he dropped a few subtle hints that all fell together.

(Radium): Four pillars.
(Radium): Ellipse around a sphere.

basics of the puzzle.

(Radium): The number four relates to many things. Only one of those things has any relation to a sphere or ellipse.

Hint number one. This one had me had for a loop, untill this conversation took place.

Ezel Berbier: ...the golden ratio?
Ezel Berbier: a/b=a+b/a
(Radium): That has an ellipse in it?
(Radium): Cool, I never knew.
Ezel Berbier: It can be applied to an elipse
(Radium): I LERND MAF

It hit me with that last line. If he made a joke about math, it couldn't have been math related at all!

(Radium): I'll give you four yes or no questions regarding the puzzle.

Ezel Berbier: ...Well, to be honest, the only thing that it can be applied to is the four worlds, and the sphere can be the star the planet is revolving around and the elipse can be the planet's path revolving around the star.
Ezel Berbier: Is the above theory correct?
(Radium): Not really, if you want to get picky.

One question down.

Ezel Berbier: Are the four pillars in any way related to the four worlds we have encountered? (supermegatropolis, spinach custard, antifoo island, etc. etc.)
(Radium): No.

Another down, and perhaps this has been answered in the past too. I just wanted it straight from the horse's mouth.

Ezel Berbier: ...Is Pi involved?
(Radium): In reeeeeeeeeeaaaaalllly nitpicky scientific theory, yes. But for all we're concerned, not whatsoever and you're thinking way too hard.

Bingo. I just hit it there. This is concerning SCIENCE, not MATH. Therefore, I have created two conclusions.


The monolith represents a Hydrogen Atom or a Berillium atom. In my LJ I made a comment about the "Four winds" referring to Neutrons, Protons, Electrons, and Photons. Four pillars representing the four parts of the atom? The only flaw here is that Hydrogen has only two parts: A single Electron zipping around a Proton...no Neutrons, and Photons are only created when the Electron gets "excited" and gives off light.

(Radium): Once you figure the right idea out, it'll be fairly hard to prove correct, but you'll probably find it obvious.

Yes, I may have it here, or I'm thinking waaaaaaaaayyyyyy too much.

The second one. I love how you get really close and then abstractly shoot away. Since you guys like to take the most difficult ways to figure things out, I'll say this: There is no math involved and a VERY tiny bit of a type of science.

Yes. Asking around more earlier would've helped, but I think at this point you can just figure it out yourselves.

The vial of middenite is about two inches long and a centimeter in diameter (oooh, I mix metric and english!). Interestingly, while the vial is transparent, it appears to have no back when you look through it.

You open the vial and stare at the contents. From the top, it appears to have no bottom. Over the next ten minutes, it slowly evaporates away unnaturally fast. I'll load the game for you. Game loaded.
