Pulling my hair out over the poem that appears on the Ny Takma page and Kendra’s blog. I believe this was pointed out before, but I only just realized that Kendra’s version of the poem says “love” in the last line, while Yshk Lanti’s version says “Aristos.”

Then I got an email from Yshk saying:

I’ve already given you his last name

Putting that together with what John said about Bryan’s name beginning with either an A or an H led me to think maybe Aristos is the last name.

I'm so excited i haven't even looked at the site yet!

EDIT: Tipsila mentioned to me that the drawing on the bottom left corner of the website is a picture of Atlantis

I think everyone should give a big thank you to Sylvia for consistently organzing these threads for all of us.

THANK YOU Sylvia. You rock meine socken.

Bryan also may be from Mississippi, and he is presumably injured.

Clue

There is letters in this image. adjusting the brightness you can see N, A, A, F and down the left eye (on your left) is some numbers.

I can't get it any better than it this. So I can't make anything of it. But would someone who knows what they are doing take a look at the originals.

There is something in there.

I posted this a while ago, but there's also something on the eye on yshk Sha (attached).

On Yshk La, I see an N and an A, but where's the F? Could you highlight them or circle them somehow?

Maybe . . . There might be an "o" off to the side as well. It's not much to go on, but it might be half of a puzzle. Like if we found a similar looking image, overlaying them and playing with transparency might bring out a whole word.

By looking to the right of the head, it looks like the letters are:

NY A

As for the "F" and "O" ... I don't know if those are letters or freak accidents from the cracking texture of the background. Buuuut ... if it is NY and A, we have THE ___ . My 2 cents Very Happy

I see someone's marked this thread "solved", but have we really? We found Bryan's website, but as far as we know know he may still be Trapped, Drowned, Lonely, Bloody or whatever. At the very least, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's emailed him, and in that he hasn't replied, he still seems to be awol.

well, as far as the directive to "FIND HIM FIND HIM FIND HIM" We've at least accomplished that. Immediatly i suppose we need to ask him to translate the rest of the language chunks we have. But other than that, we don't really know what Yshk wants with him yet. So as far as finding Bryan, i think it's ok to consider that solved since we have his website and his email address now.

I guess we'll know if Bryan replies to any of our emails, or if Yshk keeps up the "find him" stuff. At the moment, we haven't heard from either, and we can't be sure of the timing of the "find him" image on photobucket. At least, I heard about bryanaristos.com before I saw the image.

I'm pretty sure about it, the gmail i got from Yshklant was a forward of the one he/she received from photobucket witch says:

Subject: Welcome to Photobucket!

I think that's pretty clear that the picture was added yesterday a little before 2.22 pm.

And from the whois
Quote:

I think that was around the time we found Kendra's deadjournal.

So the way I see it is Puzzle Solved, hyexistenz made the connections and found Bryan. And I'm the one that marked the puzzle solved.

And as for the "Trapped, Drowned, Lonely" stuff I think that was just the PMs pointing us to the poem as was the "find him" image pointing us in the right direction. They were just giving us a nudge to get the game moving forward.

So no more arguing on this subject. If something new comes up we will create another puzzle section. But anyone who can, feel free to keep looking into the image above since the Yshk La area on http://746865656e64.com/ hasn't changed like the Yshk Gai did after we found Kendra that may mean Bryan has nothing to do with Yshk La.

Hiya, complete n00b (I think that means newbie) to ARG, Forums etc. Have been following Ny Takma on UF from about a week in and am absolutely hooked! Don't think I'm clever enuff to figure out a lot of the puzzles, but thought I'd chip in on this one.

Not sure this is the correct thread to discuss molecularr's Yshk Sha image - but it looks like a face with a nosepiece (similar to the old Norman helmets). To the top right of the white arrow/nosepiece you can sort of make out an eye.

Hope this helps??

 What is going on?!

When I checked this site earlier today the yshkla_12.gif is not showing up. I have waited and waited to see if something was going to happen but so far nothing.

So, what the heck is going on?!?

Seems to be working ok - I've cleared the cache and reloaded and it's still there.
