Someone on Reddit discovered that there are variations in the fold up maps that were included in the KS edition. We believe it is part of a bonus puzzle that requires input from a large number of KS backers. It does not appear to be related to the actual map puzzle, so helping out now should not spoil the map for you if you haven’t started it. Then again, we don’t know what it will lead to. If you would like to help, read on..
Most of the maps squares have names, such as “Smoke on the Water” in the upper right corner square. One person has that space named “Smoke on the Shade”. Other people have other squares where a word has been replaced with “Shade”. The thought is that all of those squares from many backers need to be shaded in to get a coded message, likely Braille. We need the row # and name of any space containing the word “shade.”
If you’d like to contribute, please head over to Reddit r/Almanaq to share your info, or you can post here or send to me via PM. Thanks!
I've not started this yet as I'm trying to finish up some other projects first.. but I pulled out my map to check for you. Row 5 column 9 I have "Half-baked Shade" written. Hope this helps! Your posts have me champing at the bit... Hopefully I can begin this soon.
I have the same "Half-Baked Shade" as above and also Row One, Column Two "Everlasting Shade".
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
