Rules:

You will receive clues in the form of descriptive keys found in Old Stumps, Old Logs, Bushes in the viscinity of the town you were lead to. All clues lead to locations of old/existing towns only. Each clue you find on the key begins with a code which you need to write down and remember. The codes will begin with a number and end with a letter. This will let me know that you have visited each site on your journey. They will look like this:

Some of the locations you will be sent to are in the ruins of old towns that no longer exist. In this thread you can help your fellow competitors and newer players to the locations of these towns. The only thing you may not share are the key codes or the location of the final objective.

One of your last clues provides you with a location and a question. Completion of the Ultimate Scavenger Hunt will be when you PM (private message) me on the forums with the answer. You will then be requested to verify each key code to insure you completed all the steps.

Please leave the keys in the stumps/logs/bushes after you write down the code and have read the clue to your next objective. 25-50 Clues have been placed at each objective in event of saboteurs. Be considerate.

First Clue

Primary structure of the zerg in Starcraft

Why do you think it's going to end July 8th?

I'll follow the rules, but you should make a rule that anyone taking a key from a stump earns instant death or something. :lol:

2nd clue and the first key reads "What would a Witch wear on her Wedding?", but I'm not going to give you guys the code. :lol:

Any ideas guys? Is it Witch Haven? or wait is it midnight from Discworld? Wasn't there a town called 'Midnight'? Where was that? Also wasn't there a Witch's Veil way back when, but that wasn't a town was it?

I hope a lot of people take part in this event. It took YGM all day to set this one up, and I think the prizes are incredible!

Good luck everyone!

Okay, yeah Witch's veil did exist. lol. So the 3rd clue and 2nd key without the code read "Where Robin Hood Lives" :lol: , Or in this case where Martinuzz lives so PM him if you don't know this town. :D

The 4th clue and third key reads "Popular GTA title" without the Code. GTA= Grand Theft Auto? so "Vice City", "The Lost and Damned", "Chinatown", "San Andreas", "Liberty City", "London" any of these ring a bell? Wasn't there a Vice City, anybody know where it is? Or was it San Andreas? Any help folks?

I remember a Vice City, but I couldn't tell you where it was ... Encountered it on one of my altscouting runs.
I have neither the crayons nor the time to explain it to you.

Do you remember which general location of the map you were working? NW, W, NE, S? I'm thinking I remember N somewhere but I could be wrong.
