This one seems to have a lot of you stumped. So I will provide some hints for each of the locations to help, but you will not have much time to make use of them before tomorrow's deadline.

For the Lake Kiwa location, it is indeed a difficult one. This is a really good starting point (see mini-map). You may need to walk along one or two of the walls to get there, but this should get you started at least. :)

I thought this would be the easier one this week. You can see the location and there is a path that gets you realllly close just to the south of where you want to go. The trick with this one is ... stubbornness. Run your head into the wall for a bit and you might figure it out. :p

For Hell's Furnace, all 3 locations can be reached once you find 1 way to clip out of bounds. Yes, there are multiple ways out, but any of them will let you get to all 3 spots ... an appropriately vague hint for the challenge. hehe

I hope this helps you all. I look forward to hearing more about your Gnomish Adventures.

Sadly only have time for one this week. I’ll have to save the rest for when I can enjoy them 😄.

It was really foggy, hope landmarks are visible enough. 🙂
Once again, thank you Math, and also congratulations on Royal Guardian.

Alright everyone! It is time for the tenth round of Gnomish Adventures to begin! This round will be special in several ways, as you will see below. All the rules have been changed for this one event; so be sure you read over everything. The first thing I want to let you all know about are the rewards for the event:

1625310935350.png

Participation
(at least 3 submissions total from 2 different locations ... or 1 challenge)
1 Turkey + 1 Socket + 1 Darrig Key



Before I give the location details, here are the revised rules for round 10:
  • There will not be any coordinates! Instead you will be given a structure to climb on top of. Your mission is to find as many of them as you can in The Seven Realms and send me the screenshots. To receive the participation prize, you must send 3 submissions total. These submissions cannot all be from the same area (Kingsport, etc):
    • If possible, send all screenshots to my game email: themathfish@gmail.com. This will avoid clogging the forums with the immense number of screenshots needed for this. With email, you can send images in any form you choose as long as I can open them without some fancy paid program (so zipped folders, regular folders, a bunch of random images ... all allowed).
    • If you cannot send by email, them a private message in discord is the next best thing: My Discord is Math_Fish#3803.
    • If neither one of these is an option, I ask that you send me a private forum message with your images. You can do this either by selecting the envelope next to the notification icon or my going to my profile and selecting the "start conversation" icon.
    • If all else fails, send your screenshots in the forums, but put them in spoilers. Here is an example to help you (I have it centered for aesthetic reasons, but that is not required):
Code:
[SPOILER="Example Spoiler"]
This is an example of a spoiler. Your images should go in here. ;)
[/SPOILER]
This is an example of a spoiler. Your images should go in here. ;)

  • The winners for the First, Second, and Third place prizes will be determined based on a point system:
    • 1 point for every accepted submission
      • Every vessel counts as its own submission ... so each and every boat in Kingsport counts as its own submission. Now you can see why I'm trying to keep these images out of the forums. rofl
      • To be accepted every submission must have the /loc location and you standing on the highest spot on that vessel. Now, I will be very lenient with the latter condition. For example, if there is little pointy thing that barely juts out (like on the canoe) ... don't worry about it: Just stand on the boat. If there are two high points and only 1 is accessible, just stand on the lower one and it should be fine. The boats with sails, like in Kingsport will require you to find a way to the top of the sails/mast. Have fun with those. lol :p
  • The usual rules regarding what is allowed to be used apply with 1 very notable exception. NO mounts that float on top of the water!! I will be personally checking locations to be sure they can be reached without riding on water. I am doing this to make this as fair as possible (i.e. the richer don't get richer). All known locations can be accessed without super jump or super speed; so everyone should be on as equal a playing field as possible. I always want to be fair, but for this event in particular ... I'm going out of my way to ensure it.

    Speaking of fairness, I will tell everyone how to get onto vessels in the water without using the floaty mounts: Run into them ... like, really get intimate with them ... then type /unstick in the chat. Suddenly, you are in the boat. This only works with boats you can collide with (hence why I am checking locations ... some cannot be accessed this way).
  • You may do this challenge in groups, but it will be left to the discretion of @Sarah Otter first, then myself how we choose to handle any ties.
  • Additional information will be required to ensure that every image submitted is unique:
    • The screenshot itself
    • The /loc of where you were when the screenshot was taken. To acquire this information, simply type "/loc" in chat without the quotes.
    • Both of the above can be in the screenshot (via chat). Just let me know if that is how you choose to submit your images.
  • There will be a special challenge as well. However, it will NOT count towards the rewards for this event, except for the participation prize. As always, the special challenge is for bragging rights only. ;)
  • If you have any questions, please let me know.


For round 10 of Gnomish Adventures, you are to climb to the top of as many sea vessels as you can find in The Seven Realms. Here are some screenshots to give you an idea of what precisely what I mean, but if it looks like a boat and you can stand on it ... it probably counts and you should send it, even if it isn't actually in the water:

Yep! These count ... if you can find them. hehe
Round 10 - Vessel 1.png

The highest spot is over there to the left, but I will accept this spot as well.
So if you find something like this where the tippity top seems impossible to get to ...
send the best that you can get. I am a vicious gnome, but I am also a merciful one. :)
Round 10 - Sailor's End.png

Feel free to add some extra flair like I did here.
Round 10 - Terratrias Reef.png

Yes, you have to get on the sails of this one. It's possible!
I am a merciful gnome, but I am also a vicious one. Muahaha!
Also, I never noticed the fish until I turned my graphics up for this.
Round 10 - Kingsport.png

Special Challenge: This is for bragging rights only.
Check out this image:

1625310348385.png
This is a mysterious floating object (though it is currently in the ground lol) that bobs up and down.
I'm not giving any more clues than this until at least tomorrow evening. Have fun~~~! :p

Time limit will be 7 days!
Only submissions with a time stamp earlier than 12:00PM EDT on July 10 will be accepted.


Disclaimer: Any and all parts of this event are subject to change at any time should Math Fish (event organizer) or any member of Mad Otter Games deem it necessary. The final judgment for any submission lies solely on Math Fish, but determination of how to settle ties will be handled jointly by Math Fish and a member of Mad Otter Games. If you have any questions or concerns about this event, do not contact Mad Otter Games unless the nature of the question or concern deems it necessary. Instead, contact Math Fish via email at themathfish@gmail.com, discord at Math_Fish#3803, in forum private message, or in game via whisper chat or in game mail. Thank you for playing and avoid the unpleasantness out there that makes this disclaimer necessary.



As always: The real reward is running around finding these locations. And with that,

Questions:
If the boat is on the land will it counts?
If I can only reach the spot with jump relic will it counts?
Does object that float on top of water like box and barrels counts as vessel?
What if the object is untouchable as in sunken, right under portal, and behind invisible wall, etc. will it counts if I'm not directly touching it?
How lenient is the height of the climb? will half of the reachable peak counts? :p

- On land is fine.
- Jump relic is fine, though not needed for anything I've seen so far.
- Box or barrel, no.
- You must to standing on it, so none of those would count.
- I will say that I am a bit stricter with Kingsport in particular, but the rest count if I can see you put some effort into it.

As for the challenge for this week: I was surprised the number of people that found it. I will explain what it is and let you all see if you can find the original and more like it.
1626023553200.png
This is in Ardent Castle at the coordinates 0 0 0. It is a mysterious object that the developers never thought we would find. If you hang around it a while in an active part of the day, you may hear and see some very interesting things there. If my theory is correct, then every area in the game has one of these things. I am commissioning all the gnomes to go out and see how many you can find. The first to find them gets a hefty amount of bragging rights! I have no idea how to get to any others; so this will be a challenge to keep us all occupied for a while to come.



Finally ... I'm taking a break for a bit. This event really exhausted me and I just need some time to chill. There is also something very special to me that I want to enjoy a bit more as well. Either way, there will be no Gnomish Adventures for a few weeks. Round 11 will be tentatively scheduled for August 7 at around 9am EST. Until then, have fun gnoming around! This is Math Fish, signing off for now. <3

Woot woot! Thanks for hosting this @Math Fish and checking hundreds probably thousands off submitted pics! I'm having a blast exploring pretty much all of the zone and suddenly it goes above 100+ boats without noticing until I actually try to count them.

Trying to disturb you from your slumber... would it be possible to mark which coordinate is the unique submission?
And last minor thing, I'm from US2 and just would like US2 mentioned up there too! 😁

Thanks !

I apologize for the inconvenience, but due to sickness I will have to postpone round 11 another week. An attempt was made to do something with raids, but after 30-ish minutes I was already exhausted. I'm going to get more rest.

Keep gnoming. :)
