Descent of the Durtle into eGoooott - NOW AT B5!


#6454

Oh come on, you know you love it. Weird tangents are where it’s at.


#6455

I feel like unless some more plot developments insue, we’re going to go off on weird tangents for a while…


#6456


i made this in about 45 seconds and it probably makes no sense but im too tired to check


#6457

That means we’re almost back on track!


#6458

for a brief moment, then back to nothingness


#6459

I think that’s the moment @a-regular-durtle will come around and threaten to burn us all again.

We’ll then immediately proceed in the wrong direction.


#6460

“burn… BURN! The clue must be in a kanji relating to fire!”


#6461

What else do we burn? A witch!
That exclamation is most famous because of a Monthy Python sketch. Pythons are snakes!
Let’s check kanji with the snake radical!


#6462

But if the actual path keeps curving back and forth like that, we’ll keep crossing it even if we just go straight :slight_smile:


#6463

Not necessarily. All we can do is hope


#6464

I love how @a-regular-durtle said “catching you all on fire” instead of “setting you all on fire”.


#6465

Maybe it has some kind of significance…


#6466

He also mentions letting the clues “wash” over us. I’m not sure clues are well-known for washing…


#6467

relax + wash = :bathtub:


#6468

Exactly! Waiting for a clue bath. Or maybe a clue onsen.


#6469

clueonsen


#6470

On the bright side, if Koichi is unburnt by that time, we will get another obscure hint in 44 posts.


#6471

Maybe we should use the onsen/bath water to quench the flames?


#6472

The clue is in the tofugu swimming pool, which, at it’s deepest, is 60 feet in depth, specifically for this puzzle.
Who volunteers?


#6473

not me!
Since you figured it out, why don’t you go ahead…
