I must have missed something because everyone seems to be talking about 'tactical drod' but I can't find anything like that anywhere :( Can someone direct me towards it?

Thanks in advance :thumbsup

Can someone PM me some hints or maybe the first 2 letters.
I've got all letters, but can't figure out the word(s).

Thanks

Edit: got it.

I of course got the last two right off, and then the ones in the second to last room (I thought I was clever for figuring that out), but I can't make anything out of the first two rooms yet.

I did notice that the number of checkmarks goes like 2 1 3 4, not sure if that is helpful or not :?

These clues are making things seem obvious, and making me feel dumber. But at least I was somewhere for the first room.

Okay, I read that there is a video of TSS. I am too bad at the mini=game, so I cheat and click on the link. Second room clearly has an "A". Third room has an "O". Fourth room has possibly a "c", possibly an "L". Fifth room clearly has an "I".

That's it! Beethro has a new condiment at his roach grill. Of course, it should be spelled "aioli". But Beethro isn't the best speller. Maybe it is spelled differently in Simpuhl English.

What do you mean there are two letters in each room?

You can tell we've arrived at expert April Fools trickery when the people can't tell whether we're tricking them or not. :P

Honestly, there's lots of news. Have you found it yet?

Okay I have had it!

I have entered the letters from the video into every text window with the potential to be DROD related. Forum search gives me nothing, Google gives me a bunch of random musisians, I even tried putting them in the "password" entry from that old "cheap trick contest" hold. What do I have to do, write them in cursive across the Akandian desert?

Someone tell me where to put them or I'll have to assume the whole thing is dead-ending on me and me alone.

Hrm. One of those other things he mentioned should work, though. Unless he's got the letters wrong.

I got the letters in the first room ... GE
I'm sorry but I just can't see the letters in the second room.
I got the letters in the third room ... RY
I go the letters in the fourth room ... II

Someone said (I was sure even though I can't find the posting now) that you would know it when you found it (meaning the entire word).

So I tried entering letters in the gap.

GEAARYII
GEABRYII
GEACRYII
.
.
.
GEOFRY II

hmm, I have never seen Jeffrey spelled that way. I HAVE seen it spelled Geoffrey, though.

But there is no registered member named Geofry, let alone Geofry II.




Before you reply, I have seen all the secret messages in this thread and I have seen the awesome video.
I just thought I would share my experience.
