Post Ocarina of Time Prayer Star-ANSWERED!!



Rules:

No flaming or spamming
Do not post what might be the puzzle's answer. (be careful about that)
Instead Pm me your answer
Post your intent to solve the puzzle Collaborations are allowed (if needed)
Be sure to let us know if you need one. Also let us know who's collaborating with whom.
No guessing, be prepared to prove you solved it or no credit will be given.
If you and/or your Puzzle Partners need to verify being on the right track, feel free to PM me, or even better use MSN messenger to get in touch with me.

What is this?

It's a MetaPuzzle! Basically I managed to create 4 OoT themed puzzles in one picture. This is structured so that no step can be solved without
having solved the previous steps. Each of the 4 puzzles are refered to as one step, all 4 are referred to as the puzzle. So Step 1 can be solved
simply by knowing OoT, But Step 2 requires information from Step 1; and then Step 2 will lead you to Step 3, etc.

I assure you that no other puzzle experience is quite like this one, So remember to be respectful and try not to ruin it for others.

I will also be keeping track of which clans lead, by solving it first and have the most members solve it.

There will be 3 Ranks of puzzle solvers and prizes vary accordingly:
Pierres: Racking their brains, solved Step 1.
Skullkids:Courageous enough to solve Step 2
Hylian Soldiers: Found the heart to finish Step 3
Wizards of LoZ: Solved the Whole Puzzle


Walking past a Gossip Stone, you notice its eye followed your movements.
You face it and walk closer. It wiggles and spits a parchment at you.
It then says, "We verified that you have recieved 3 read letters from us.
Please return the other 10." It began ticking, you knew what that meant.
You grabbed the ejected parchment and ran for cover fast.
That compressed air sound of an explosion filled your ears, you could feel the heat on your back.
The strangest Gossip Stone in Hyrule just self destructed. You unroll the scroll and find:





Beloved Goddesses!! Bless this quest as ye doth inspire!!
Mighty Din, Empower me to see all that the Sheikah may see,
By the Order of Nayru, shall I find the keys that I require.
May her wisdom unite, answer my plight, & bestow truth upon thee!

Farore's breath bestows new hope and meaning across the land'
As dark winding paths deliver me from sin, show me a secret hidden
And lo, faithfully I obey thy divine steps, I've yet to understand
Alas, no longer forsaken, the past connects, a hero, I awaken

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

This Double Post is a necessary evil. I need a slot to edit in everyone's rank and the Clan Score.






Pierres:



Skullkids: Twilight Kitty, Triforce of the Gods, Forte, KarterYur





Hylian Soldiers:



Wizards of LoZ: Fizz, CWP, et cetera. Kiara Kensei, GKANG, Caulaincourt

Clan Scores
Din: 2
Pierres:
Skullkids: Twilight Kitty
Hylian Soldiers:
Wizards of LoZ: et cetera.


Farore: 3
Pierres:
Skullkids: Forte
Hylian Soldiers:
Wizards of LoZ: CWP, GKANG


Nayru: 5
Pierres:
Skullkids:Triforce of the Gods, KarterYur
Hylian Soldiers:
Wizards of LoZ: Fizz, Kiara Kensei, Caulaincourt


Thanks to Everyone that's working on it, complimenting the art and getting more ZUers to try this.

Another thanks to CWP for assistance with the Banner and the creation of the Axiomist fleur de leis logo. More thanks to Fizz for helping to get interest going. To Cambria for allowing this game in the Clan Arena. And to Kiara Kensei for pointing out my embarrassing grammar errors.

Huge, Massive thanks to GKANG for the awesome new banners.

UPDATE:
I updated the Riddle Prayer. It's there to help everyone. I'm going to remake the picture one day and write this prayer in it. But I figure I'll post it.

I had immense help from Kiara Kensei in writing it, I'm not as talented a writer as she is, so give her credit for helping me get that together.

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

Okay, you've got me intrigued, although I'm still a little confused as to how this works. Is there a question it's asking for "Step 1", or do we need to figure that out on our own as well?

I trust most people should be able to figure out Step 1 on their own. According to your pm, you already have. I'll remind you to study the steps you've completed as they hold the vital clue to the next step.

And it is 100% correct. As I expected, when this puzzle is solved, there is no doubt about it.

But since what I say about it could be biased, may I ask you to post your thoughts on the puzzle? (without spoilers to anyone of course)

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

You may, Axiomist. *Takes the microphone*

Well first, the art, style, and obvious time you put into making the puzzle is incredible. ._. As I was trying to solve it I felt compelled to keep working on it like I was Indiana Jones or something (actually Link I suppose, lmao). I just got this sense of... "What is this?" Then, as things started coming together, I began getting those "AHAH!" moments, which was the best part; the last one made me jump out of my seat, hahah.

So... Yeah I like puzzles, so of course I'd have fun with this, but I DO recommend other people to try it. Of course, I'd be fine if Nayru keeps the lead...

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Kiara Kensei: That's really good to have seen a future step on your first shot. Well, it indicates excellent observation skills. But as soon as you find the very first step I know you'll solve step 2 right away. Can't wait to see ya speed right through these ranks.

Fratey: I can't wait to see your progress

Triforce of the Gods, I put you down bc your pm ensured me that you were on the right track for it, but if you want me to check what you actually have, feel free to send it in. Otherwise it may be difficult to solve the rest of the puzzle.

Twilight Kitty: Well done, Don't give up as it gets harder. Even Fizz could tell ya that this is a very unique puzzle, with several clever twists and a rather fitting ending.

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

I want to break this puzzle so that Nayru continues to own the lead... might take me a few days though.

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

try getting an uber-pretty banner for people who solved it, it will get more exposure.

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

I've just spent about 15 minutes on it, and I think I can finish in less than an hour total, maybe a half hour.

I need to print it out though, so I can work on it properly. I should have it done tonight, when I can get more time.

interesting btw, but I think I got most of if not all the layers discovered and I have a good idea of how to proceed once I print.

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

Axiomist, I have a question. Do I need to print this out to get this "finished", or is it possible doing on a simple PC monitor?
That is, so I don't pull my hair over something trivial. ;p

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

rhakiath & Fizz: what kind of banner? Something to go in the Sig box, or something like the clan banner? I could probably get the sig box banner, but I wouldn't even know where to start for the other one. I'm up for suggestions tho.

fratey: I think it can be done on the monitor alone, You could always use MSPaint or even write with markers on the screen. I've had people do both of those before. But the first step can be done without printing it. Certainly the larger view of the puzzle would be more helpful whether it's printed or not.

Re: Ocarina of Time Prayer Star

I only needed to print so I could take it with me to classes, and to rotate to read upside down text.

the banner is unlikely, but perhaps a sig piece would work. maybe if a few more people try it then someone will be willing to make one.
