I played around with the first puzzle a long time. I can't explain how I got it, but I can say that the circle goes in the middle, and a star in the middle of the circle, and the left and right edges of the puzzle make book edges. (ie., It is a map book opened up with a circle and star in the middle. once you get the puzzle you click the middle and it sends you to puzzle # 2).

Does this help?

Hey all, first time posting in LL. Nice to meet you all.

Now, on to business...

I'm in and fairly confused, but I think I'm headed the right direction on one of the puzzles. Let me know what you think.

I'm in the lab and working on the puzzle all the way to the right.

SPOILER: (click box to reveal/hide)


There are two sets of symbols: the four "basic elements" and more complex elements. As you'll recall, the four "basic elements" are earth, water, air and fire (the fifth element is love, in case you couldn't figure that out from the movie). Each of the four basic elements is represented by one of four triangle. They are:

Down-Strike = Earth (amber)
Down = Water (green)
Up-Strike = Air (blue)
Up = Fire (red)

I counted eighteen complex elements. I'm not going to try to describe their symbols (I'll let you handle that), but I will list their names and atomic weights.

Atomic mass / Name as it appears in the game
05 Boron
12 Magnesium
14 Silicon
15 Phosphorus
16 Sulphur
19 Potassium
26 Iron Mars
29 Copper Venus
30 Zinc
33 Arsenic
47 Silver Moon
50 Tin Jupiter
51 Antimony
78 Platinum
79 Gold Sun
80 Mercury Mercury
82 Lead Saturn
83 Bismuth

So here's my hypothesis:
The complex element symbols on the four cards tell you which numbers to use and the basic elements tell you how to manipulate them (i.e. add, subtract, multiply, divide). My hypothesis states that if you manipulate the numbers correctly, the result will be the number listed in the gray box on the right-hand side.

What still puzzles me is why the planet names are included, but this might just be a red herring.



This is from lazylaces lol im such a stealer

A covered walk with an open colonnade on one side, running along the walls of buildings that face a quadrangle.

A place, especially a monastery or convent, devoted to religious seclusion.
Life in a monastery or convent.
A secluded, quiet place.

cloister

see ya

Sorry, I was away for a bit b/c I went on an "atomic weight" search... I found out it is "atomic mass." I still am stuck after this search and I don't get what ya all were talking about either?

ok, well i finished it with the two words they gave us all OneBun, so just type in the two words avalanche on the top line, and cloister on the bottom line and remove the dashes! Ok? Once u do that then click on the door handle, and you're in the last room. Then click on what you're trying to fin din the first place, and you're done! ok? Talk soon on another game OneBun! bye!

For Puzzle #2... If ya wanna figure it out on your own...like me... go to ...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alchemical_symbol :D

You take the 4 Basic Elements and see how they combine in the puzzle for the planetary metals!!!! The atomic theories given earlier do not apply here!

I think it is important to note that the second puzzle was different for me probably because I entered the building through the window...not the door. :P
