Ack, beat me to the punch! I'll just repost the conversation here. Mods, feel free to delete the thread I started about it, or merge them or whatever. I was away at the time of the first contact, but I got back in enough time to have a conversation with this person.

[14:06] *** Auto-response from robanybody11: Crivens! How do someone mess around on this hexie thingie? Waily waily waily..
[14:08] robanybody11: Er.. do ye understand what a Geas is?
[14:10] SamRey56: I think so. Or at least the basics. Unless we're talking about two separate things, which we might be. Why don't you explain it to me, so that we're both on the same page.
[14:10] robanybody11: er..
[14:10] robanybody11: Letme at my Feegle Morporkain to Normal Morporkain.
[14:11] SamRey56: Okay, that's fine.

[14:14] robanybody11: Ach, aye

So far, no puzzles to speak of, but the sheer WTF at the dialogue has got me hooked. What I can puzzle out (no pun intended) is that this person is in search of a small girl or woman that was kidnapped from...well, I'm not sure what the chalklands could be. And this person (or, well, Feegle I guess) as well as other people (Feegles) have a geas (oath) to the chief hag (grandmother, or more likely a matriarch or a queen) to find this big wee hag (probably a teenager, considering the combination of "big" signifying not a child, yet "wee" signifying not an adult)...

EDIT: Did a Google for "Feegles" and a wikipedia entry for a race of fairies in Discworld came up. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nac_Mac_Feegle So apparently, we were IMed by someone from Discworld. Might help if I read that book series. I really should get around to it, I've heard good things.

SON OF EDIT: After reading a bit more of the Wikipedia entry, I see we were contacted by Rob Anybody, Big Man of the Chalk clan, husband to Jeannie, Kelda of the Chalk clan. Something tells me this one is going to be...interesting.

edit: duplicate post deleted - Rowan

OMG !!11!1!one!one!om!

OK really count me in on this one I'm a total Discworld freak.

I think from the conversations that they are saying that Tiffany Aching(the big wee hag) has been kidnapped and that Granny Weatherwax(the hag o' hags) has charged the Nac Mac Feegle(as blade said) to rescue her.


Additionally hex is a magical computer not a language as far as the characters are concerned.

Hoons!

EDIT: My AIM address is OraclleUK if anyone wants to know.

*owned by oraclle*

I haven't read the Tiffany Aching books yet - Just the main series (except Thud) and The Amazing Maurice.

But I'll go get 'em tonight, and I'll be keepin a close eye on this - if it turns out to be a game, I'm in, totally.

[12:05] robanybody11: Well-e....From what we kould see with our een, Looked like he had a pointy-head.
[12:05] robanybody11: But.. i feel we maynot have enough people to be savin' the big wee hag.
[12:06] robanybody11: Do ye know of any otters who may help?
[12:06] SamRey56: Personally, no, but we've spread the word at a place where people that like to help and solve puzzles frequent. People will see it and gather there.
[12:06] robanybody11: Ach...do ye know how we may see this place?
[12:08] SamRey56: You can go here to read over it: http://forums.unfiction.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16943

I just had a quick conversation with Rob - the PM in this seems strangely reluctant to give us anything to get our teeth in to - I ran out of ideas on how to ask for a puzzle in the end. I'm probably missing something obvious.

[17:31] robanybody11: Well. Us Feegles dinnae know the meanin' of "fear".
[17:32] robanybody11: Bu-ut, We dinnae know the meanin' of "puzzles".


Got a little fed up at this point and decided to be a bit silly.

Quote:

[17:32] OraclleUK: fear

noun {C or U}

an unpleasant emotion or thought that you have when you are frightened or worried by something dangerous, painful or bad that is happening or might happen:
- Trembling with fear, she handed over the money to the gunman.

- Even when the waves grew big, the boy showed no (signs of) fear.

- I have a fear of heights.

- The low profit figures simply confirmed my worst fears.

- {+ that} There are fears that the disease will spread to other countries.

[17:33] robanybody11: Ach, we mean it rhe-torically.
[17:33] OraclleUK: lol
[17:33] robanybody11: By the way, We followed Tiffany tae the Seen-yetnot U-nee-verse-it-ee.
[17:34] OraclleUK: OK - how did you know that's where she was taken to? Have you got anything to go on to show where she has been taken now?
[17:34] robanybody11: A nougat surprise!
[17:35] OraclleUK: 'course - getting forgetful in my old age
[17:35] robanybody11: Fund in one of the corridors of that U-knee-verse-it-eee.
[17:37] OraclleUK: What does Hex think about the nougat surprise?
[17:37] robanybody11: He says it's "MALIGNITY".
[17:37] robanybody11: which apparently meanies "Auditor."
[17:37] robanybody11: Ach! There be sumone coming in here!
[17:38] robanybody11: It's not a pointy-head!
[17:38] OraclleUK: Who is it?
[17:38] robanybody11: Ach! No time to finde out!
[17:38] robanybody11: We gotta run!
[17:38] robanybody11: G'bye!
[17:38] OraclleUK: Good ,luck - let me know if you find out more

So the clue to where she's been taken is...

Well I was wondering how they were going to make a puzzle without using 'Earth' codes.

EDIT: Pointy-head = Wizard

The "auditors" are the auditors of reality ( http://wiki.lspace.org/index.php/Auditors_of_Reality ). they always try to make sure things run smoothly, and logically. (obviously, they have a hard time accepting discworld)

for example, discworld has an anthropomorphic personification of death (a tall skeleton in a robe with a scythe that actually shows up for important deaths) and the auditors tried to "kill" him once because he was unnecessary (death happens all by itself) and he was developing a personality. they didnt like that. (in Reaper Man)

Another time (in Hogfather) they tried to get rid of the Hogfather (Discworld's Santa Claus)

incidentally, if an auditor ever says "I" (or me, or anything else giving them individuality from all the other auditors) that auditor ceases to exist.

I wonder how the auditors are involved with little Tiffany Aching.[/i]
