I remember feeling the same, Kankurette, but it made sense once I plotted it out logically.

It is definitely starting to make sense now, and I'm glad cos I'm really enjoying this game, even if Chapter 3 did make me want to tear my hair out (I failed miserably the first time!)

I wish there was a page that says what badges we need to complete this thing. Had I known from the start we need the [bleep] badge, I wouldn't have even bothered with this.

*SPOILERS*

wink


In the early stages of the game (the FAQs?) there is mention that the game will take into account many different facets of FT from quiz-playing to authoring and everything in between and that it would not be easy, even for high-level players. Not to mention the slew of badge requirements at the beginning of the game let alone the very, very end.

On the same note, there's a point mid-way through the quest that actually encourages you to speak to another member about the fact that you need the [bleep] badge (and a couple others, if I recall), so it shouldn't have been completely out of left-field if you've been keeping notes. I believe that one was stated in Chapter 7 (or 8).

As the FAQs say: "Designed to challenge those who have solved most of the challenges on the site."

Anton, in reply to this, I'm telling you that you have a way to complete the game without earning any additional badges. Being [bleep] doesn't necessarily mean to have the [bleep] badge. It may just make it a lot easier to have it.

Well done Mike and to think we were side by side a month or so ago. At least it gives me something to aim for still.

I'm in Chapter 9 and had to write a quiz (one of out of nine possible options). I did so and now I am back to where I started. There was no "go back" link. In fact, they aren't any other choices between getting the quiz on-line and ending back where I started (with the nine possible options)--as in, only one link possible.
There was no indication that there's only one correct choice, so I thought it's safe to assume that any of those nine will do. Apparently not.
I guess my question is "How do I know which is right?" but I realize that question may give away too much. Maybe a PM? I looked through the notes I copied from Chapter 9 to see if there was any hint but there was none.

Currently at the start of Chapter 6 near the shrine. There are three options. Options 2 and 3 bring up the same text. The text I get both times is about option 2.

You might have used the back button or something similar which can make the game appear out of sync (in particular, the game will not actually advance you on a link but rather return you to the last visited place - this is a cheat prevention). Your log however shows you as not having visited any of the shrine locations more than once - you took the first option (on the 7th), then went to "do something else", then you chose the second (today).

If you can't advance away from that location, please close your browser and then call up AQ from the main page again. If that doesn't work, clear your browser cache and then return to AQ from the main page.

I was weighing my options, so to speak ;-)

But the third option worked now.

Always use the in-game links to go back. Using the back button to undo a decision won't work.

Remember that when you request help on a specific stage, please be vague enough that you won't spoil the game's surprises for others - or, if you need to be specific, please contact me with a PM.

I had to delete a help request from this thread today for this reason; its author please check PM for the answer.

Ok, sorry Wes.
When I noticed that my post had gone, I thought it was for this reason.
Won't do it again blush

I now know my answer - can't believe 1 week wasted crazy

Wow, the ranks are starting to fill. (We still have some room before creating a circle of 12 though.)

Just getting started here and finally got the initial Questian Level I badge from Heracles.

However, immediately after redeeming the badge, I do not have a link to move forward, and there is a message at the bottom that says "Invalid varjump found."

Seems like a bug and not part of the quest. I've tried logging in on both my personal and work laptop and my phone to see if it was an issue on my end but to no avail. Anyone know how I can move forward? Thanks!

I fixed your game state - it seems you had spent a very long time on an early stage and because I had to change something along the way to fix a bug, a particular game variable had never been set for you.
