Westeros

The Maester's Path Begins

Recommended Posts

GameOfThrones_Maesters_Path_06_M.jpgAs predicted, HBO has launched The Maester’s Path, a series of interactive puzzles. This is viral marketing at its finest, from what we can see so far… and also as predicted, the symbols that we and others received are the key to the first puzzle. Feel free to look at them here!

Every monday will see a new puzzle, as you work to gain knowledge. We’re guessing that perhaps each week is going to see the “influencers” chosen by HBO possibly receiving a new package with more clues for future puzzles. The site promises “great rewards”... wonder what those might be?

Okay... this is pretty cool. And I'm glad I was on the right track, too, regarding the fact that the symbols in the package would be used in a puzzle!

One hint: there are a couple of unique symbols (no duplicates), so line those up first with their appropriate locations, and then puzzle out the rest. Remember, only three symbols for each of the five areas.

If you have just two of the locations, you should be able to get the puzzle pretty quickly. I just worked from the ones Ran posted. Not too difficult, but pretty neat.

Nice little iconic prize at the end.

Anybody get 5 "novices" to follow them yet? I just sent something out to friends. Wondering if you get something else if you do that.

The puzzle is fairly easy to solve if you look at the information about the symbols here on this website (links on the left).

Nice little reward for solving it as well, as Smegma says.

No novices for me yet, but I think most people I know (at least those who are interested in this) have already signed up for themselves. I hope that the only difference is that those with the most novices are those who rise highest on the "Acclaimed" list, and not that they get extra snippets or previews.

No, it hasn't shown up yet, and I certainly haven't gotten any notification. The rolling eyes were just a total bonus.

Right now it does sound like just an Acclaim board thing... but given some of the language about "intended for U.S. residents only", there may be some sort of competition at the end.

I have one novice listed on mine, but I have no idea who it is. I sent it to a few friends and posted it on Facebook. Wonder which of my friends it was.

It's a click-to-play video located just above the phrase "Your nose is wise enough to navigate the stews and septs of Westeros." No email or anything, I don't think - it's just a sneak peek of a previously-unreleased (?) snippet. [This one's between Jon and Arya.]

Yep, unreleased.

And no, the novices seem to stay anonymous. I don't think it's really something where you're supposed to know who they are.

Thank you so much. Very cool. No idea why it didn't work the first time, but I redid the test and got it.
