That's funny!

I was really scratching my head because I have the 6 equations. I'm good at solving equations and I was questioning my sanity here; if I can solve 5 equations out of 6, the last one will be a child's play. I saw the "X" but really thought the equation was not complete so I completed it in my head. I was still in equation solving mode. I completed it to have the same result because I was multiplying by the same d'ni numeral. Now, I know what has to be multiplied!

Now that I get it, I will gladly go with confidence, open that open door, and end up in a dead end! :lol: I already know my fate.

At least, I learnt 2 lessons in your latest age: look everywhere (ref. 7th cloth) and don't assume it is an equation even thought it seems at first glance (ref. door code).

Thank you for this great installment in your ever expanding series of ages!
Looking for the next one, I hope the monster won't follow our trails...

because Diafero can't make the Age invisible.


I can make ages invisible so only admins can go there, but what I cannot do is make an age visible only for you. ;)
I prefer e-mails to "diafero arcor de" (after adding the at and the dot) over PMs.

That's exactly what I meant, even if I didn't write it like that in my good English. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
But since I'm not an admin and you can't test my world. Is it the way it is :-) :) :)

I need help, so this will contain spoilers for Alabaster's Depths.

I have been trying for a long time now to open that door with six buttons to its right, and I don't understand why nothing I try works. Is it even possible to open this door?

I found 7 cloths.
I found all 6 crystal
I found 5 equations:
1 = 3
2 = 5
I was unable to find 3
4 = 1
5 = 4
6 = 6

I figured out opening the long crystal compartment above the six buttons. Note that the color lists I'm about to give will be in reference to pressing the buttons underneath the specified color of crystal seen in that compartment.

First I just tried the raw pedestal order in case those equations were for a different puzzle:
Cyan, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue

Next I tried swapping each pedestal number with what the equations added/subtracted up to. For 3 I assumed it must be 3 = 2 due to process of elimination:
Yellow, Orange, Cyan, Green, Red, Blue

Next I tried reversing what each side of the equal sign meant:
Orange, Green, Red, Cyan, Yellow, Blue

None of these worked, so I don't know what to do. Should one of them have worked?

Ehren,

you are missing 1 equation. That equation is crucial because without it, you cannot open the door. Because the equation you are missing as an added feature to it. From that point on, you will be able to solve the puzzle of the crystals. Beyond that door, you won't find much though. You might be aware or not but Alabaster's Depth is so vast Dulcamara broke it down into 3 parts. That door will enable us to go to part 2 of the age.

The issue I have right now is I forgot to put the location where I found the equation you are missing, it could be underwater or behind a rock or high up or hidden deep inside the age. As you know, the age is immense so, good luck. On the flip side, the area beyond the door you are trying to open isn't ready yet.

The only clue I have with me that could help you out is that I identified the orange crystal as being the number 3 and I associated the cloth 4 to it meaning in my scramblings that the equation 3 must be near cloth 4.
