Ravel

Post by CCAIU on Fri Apr 08, 2011 6:50 pm

Hi, I have been around this site for a while but have not made an account. I like it here... somewhat... and I am considering joining this epicly ossum site.

Anyway I was looking on MOCpages and found a lot of seriously epic MOCs by this guy (username is Nannan Z). It seems that he specializes in landscapes, specifically stunning and eery vignettes. He has lotsa bricks and probably just as much spare time. Out of several great MOCs, this is my favorite one so far, out of the ones that I've seen anyway. And it is AMAZING. (Yeah, that requires all caps!) This is called Ravel, and it's a so-called "picture puzzle". A poem was included in the description, giving the situation and the basis of the puzzle itself. I'm not going to bore you with a description, so see for yourself...

Here is a link to the pic:

EDIT: Link to the MOC: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/245096





This is Ravel, a picture puzzle. You are a postman who one day wakes up in a mysterious place. What is going on, is it a dream? You come across a signpost in the road. It reads:

Welcome friend to a place called Ravel,
Should you wish to leave; there’s no need to travel.
Open your mind and believe what you see,
Follow my words carefully and you will be free.

Beware the creature chained to the guillotine,
A close encounter, and death he will bring.
He bears your semblance like a deranged twin,
To get past you must slay him from within.

The weapon you seek is neither sword nor spear,
It is rather small and shaped like a sphere.
But judge not this toxic fruit by its size,
The bones of the Great Beast tell no lies.

Finding the exit is your next task,
There’s no gate or portal, so don’t even ask.
Look to the stars and you will find your way,
They light your path as clear as day.

Point the Northern Star southeast,
To the south you will shine the Star of the Northeast
Point the Eastern Star southwest
And the Southwest Star east. (You’re almost done with your quest!)

The obsidian block marks the compass center,
And where the light beams cross, there you will enter.
Pick up the tools once guarded by the creature,
Now dig dig dig your way to departure!





Sorry if the link for the pic doesn't work... Anyway they'd the web adress for the pic. I myself find it very intriguing. Nannan Z said he would post a video depicting the solution, but it wasn't up last I checked. So... post your answers, if you have any, in this topic. We have to help the mailman escape Ravel!!!


:awesome: scratch

...And you put this in the Announcments section?

Genious.

Since for some reason it doesn't work for me, can Pyro or someone move this to off-topic?

Sorry, I put it in this section by mistake. Embarassed If someone could
move it, that would be great.

Also I just realized that my link doesn't work. I don't know why. Sorry.
But if you Google search 'MOCpages Nannan Z' it should give you some good results.

Sorry Legonater.

So you're a lurker, huh? Suspect Razz

I moved it. Razz And 'at's OK. You're a guest, I don't think you'd be able to post it in the correct topic. The MOC sounds neat, I'll go look it up...
