Let's see how you do!

I can't believe it's that time again!

What time?

The fifth Thursday of the month.

... It's a long story, one that really doesn't make any sense even once you've read it.

Now, this challenge is different for several reasons.

For one, if you do it right, you won't fight a SINGLE tog (do it wrong... and boy howdy will you.)

They deserve a break every once and a while.

The other difference is, there is no brute force method to solving the puzzle.  There is no easy way to work things out.  Just randomly trying to solve it will NOT work.  There is a pattern and a puzzle to it, and you WILL need other players to find it.

To start this month's Code Monkey Challenge, you will need to visit Lymcrest and find the Code Monkey Tog (not that hard).  Once you've started the quest, you'll need to get the item (A Clue!).

The item's description is your ONLY clue.  You will need to find the SINGLE place in-game that will unlock the clue's details.  Once you do... the real puzzle begins. 

Good luck.  Cya on the Forums or on Twitter



6 Minutes after midnight, and more then 7 hours after it started, Rini and their mom managed to crack the code and solve the puzzle.

I amd seriously amazed by the number of people who participated this time!  I expected more players, but friends, family, and parents were pulled in as were many that have never tried a CMC before.  It was a lot of fun to watch you guys think sidways, backwards and upside down to solve it! 

Congratulations, I'm going to sleep!


P.S. - Why Codswallop? Why not.  It's a funny word!
