Good work Zarniwoop, but it would appear that I am totally unable to access any of the clue pages, apart from the very first one. I've disabled all plugins, cookies, caches, my history, and to confirm it wasn't Firefox's problem, I tried it all in IE. Nothing.

Any ideas what's wrong? This is killing me!!!



By clue pages, do you mean the www.alltheconspiracies.org... site?

What happens when you type in the [answer].html entries?

... error message, anything?

All I get is "That is not what the eye wants."

Whether I am typing in the addresses correctly, or clicking on links, I get the same thing for every page after the "What does the eye want" page. Once again,

You can't skip forward. You've got to start at the first site, type in whatdoestheeyewant.html, then pyramids, etc. The blackplague link wasn't working for me, that's why I put up a post guessing on an already answered question not long ago.

Anyway, it's mentioned in wikipedia that

There is a point of view, much propagated by Lev Gumilev, that the Horde and Russian polities concluded a defensive alliance against the fanatical Teutonic knights and pagan Lithuanians. Enthusiasts point out to the fact that the Mongol court was frequented by Russian princes, notably Yaroslavl's Feodor the Black, who boasted his own ulus near Sarai, and Novgorod's Alexander Nevsky, the sworn brother of Batu's successor Sartaq Khan. Although Novgorod never acknowledged the Horde's ascendancy, a Mongol contingent supported Novgorodians in the Battle of the Ice.

Sarai carried on a brisk trade with the Genoese trade emporiums on the Black Sea littoral - Soldaia, Caffa, and Azak. Mamluk Egypt was the khans' long-standing trade partner and ally in the Mediterranean.



Edit to add: not that this matters because yet again I've been a little too independent for my own good. Guess I'll stick to that site.

Yeah, I know. I start at the first one, type in www.alltheconspiracies.org... and I get that incorrect message. It befuddles me.

It's probably something really silly and I'll be ex/ embarrassed that I asked the question, but still, I'm grinding my teeth to powder in the meantime. . .

Yep... that's it.

Also, on the previous games, there was a time limit for when you'd have to start from the beginning again. On this one, I've already had to start over a few times without clearing cookies, etc


Someone going to tinwiki this game?

Sure would make it easier.

Really just posting questions and the related answer links. The main benefit is so players can cruise right through the answer links when they have to start over. Good example is the last game...

tinwiki.org...

I don't know wiki editing, and you certainly shouldn't feel obligated at all. But, if it looks easy to you... go for it

The Leaning Tower of Pisa?? You got to be joking! and I thought the whore of Babylon was a lame answer.

thats it, we need to index all of the wrong answers to the blackplague.html page, because this seems to be a REALLY trickey phrasing of something relatively simple. I'm going to start a wiki. everyone be sure to post your tries so we can update the wiki as we go.. post them here and somebody can copy them.

Did you disable cookies or clear them.

I think if you disabled them, the site probably won't work.

Sorry if I'm going over basic stuff... just trying to help.

Try Firefox?

I havent shut down my browser in the 2 days since the competition started. I just progress to the next .html then enter a guess, then press back.

YES!!!!!! That did it!!


I've still got to delete all the cookies if I want to check previous questions, but it's fixed!

OK, so...what was the ultimate goal of the plague attack?

The Europeans were exploiting trade relations with the East and India was, after several centuries, unhappy with perceived trade inequities. So, they planned to wipe out Europe with the Black Plague, march in, and expand their empire.

Tried...

colonization
occupation
expansion
marketexpansion

I know the feeling. I gave a funny answer too on the nebbuchadnezzer question. I said the lie was "i'm on the pill".
