Just the temples left to corrupt.  Anecdotal evidence is that the final three take the largest numbers of troops/diplos.  Is there any truth to the speculation that all three temples will corrupt at the same time when Audrey awakens?

I don't believe activation of the HoC is related to any lunar phase.  I believe that also holds when she stops (21 days?).  The visits by the crone and attempts of the tentacles escaping do follow moon cycles.  The crone comes first and the tentacles attempt to escape two weeks later.

Good luck to those who continue to pursue this discovery and to those just starting be sure hit those corrupted temples and collect as many tentacles as possible.  The community especially needs more orc and dorf tentacles!

Send me an IGM if you have MULTIPLE CITIES prepared (5 tentacles, crone, messenger to Duraz) for this next awakening.  I think there may be a maximum number of cities that the crone will visit (with the message about the five tentacles per race) for a single player.  I was hoping to do more for the sake of experimentation but the crone has checked out on me.  I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had a similar experience.

I don't think the quest is this hard by design. I suspect the code is broken, or the steps are way too intolerant of failure. For example, someone with "basement tentacles" told me that they sent more diplos to the Fortune Teller, and then nothing happened when Audrey beat the next time. It's nearly impossible for players to test, since it takes an enormous effort to wake Audrey, and the specific sequence is obscure. Audrey herself seems designed for a server with 100000 active players, not 2000-4000.

Even if some people found something, nobody seems to have obtained the racial crafting ability!

Haven't people tried that already? The first guy to make a big deal about the quest had a couple dozen armies camped all around his town, covering all squares. The first tentacles just appeared further away, right?


I believe when myself and others (Nesse, Epidemic, etc. etc.) tried all this the first time back in 2014, no one was quite fast enough to surround all 8 corners before one tentacle-square grew up. We hadn't known beforehand that was a thing to try. Some people stopped the growth after one square, others let many squares grow, sometimes in funny directions. In later years when Audrey woke again people tried the surrounding the city technique but I have never heard of anyone getting the correct system messages about the tentacles escaping on the new moon,so either people have figured something out and are being quiet or later generations somehow messed up even more than the first generation did.

And I don't mean 'messed up' as a pejorative. The mystery is hard >.< Personally I thought I understood most of it and every time an experiment doesn't repeat the same way I get more and more confused. So..I say try anything! Whether or not people think it has been tried. Something has to work xD

To Wartow:

You should resend!
The message allowing you to visit successfully Duraz Karag is random...

Sometimes you don't get the message on the first try. No idea why. People have said that for years.

Another question... What happens if you send spies to the Fortune Teller but only get the lame message back about "bigger things in the future" or whatever?  I don't get the Master Crafted Chainmail response.  All research is done.  A chainmail armorer is present.  What else is missing?
