Heya.

Well, as some of you might know, Greypawn recently posted saying

Quote:

On Tuesday, BHG will have something rather large to announce to the public... something that will probably draw quite a bit of attention to Rise of Legends.
I think you guys will be pleasantly surprised.

.

That's in http://rol.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=ct&f=4,702,0,365, if you were wondering.

Anyway, Greypawn and I were talking on MSN, and he revealed what he called a 'clue' about Tuesday to me. Sounds like a load of gibberish to me. The clue is:
kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Now, this may sound like gibberish, but secrets could be contained. I have already theorised that it could refer to a post, or posts, containing an answer to the question but disguised. It could also be something hidden in the code of a site relevant to the game - it could even be hidden in the code or on a fansite's non-forums part. The shape of the K in the font he uses suggests a smiley face maybe - emoticons, or buddy images for IM Clients that never got released maybe? Maybe even in game!?

Another idea is one of a rise of legends movie! Evidence is that Greypawn suddenly asked me if I wanted a movie sized RoL Poster, to which I happened to say yes, though I expect that's irrelevant. Movie Sized. The specific use of this phrase could suggest something. Maybe an ad campaign even, like they do for films?!


THE PLOT THICKENS...

No, actually, he was talking constantly around that.

I don't know what's happening, I'll post a roundup of ideas so far later.

Okay, for those trying to come up with ideas, here's the conversation. I've edited out stuff I don't want any Tom, Dick or Harry knowing about me. There's also a lot of smilies missing.

GreyPawn says:
Evolved, whereabouts do you live, out of curiosity?

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
Edited, which is just above Edited, which is just west of -Edited which is about 12 miles from Leeds which is In West Yorkshire England

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
why?

GreyPawn says:
Just curious.

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
oh

GreyPawn says:
Mind if I send you a poster?

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
no

GreyPawn says:
Great! Can you give me your full name and mailing address with phone number? It's a movie-sized poster for RoL, thought you might like one.

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
cool

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
erm

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
oaky

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
1 sec

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
Michael Philip Mokrysz

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
Edited, Edited, Edited, Edited, West Yorkshire, England Edited Edited

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
that's it

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
Edited Edited

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
so, name: Michael Edited Mokrysz address: Edited, Edited, Edited, Edited, West Yorkshire, England Edited Edited phone number: Edited Edited

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
the extension you would need to use is....

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
just a sec

GreyPawn says:
Great! Thanks!

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
44

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
is the extension i think

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
Wikipedia says so anyway

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
yeah, +44 Edited Edited should work

GreyPawn says:
Gotcha. Thanks!

GreyPawn says:
Which is the City you live in? Edited, or Edited?

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
well

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
Edited is the Village, and Edited is the town, we don't actually have a city, unless you count Edited, which isn't in our address

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
so Edited i spose

GreyPawn says:
Gotcha.

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
by the way, the reason it's a 'Movie' sized poster isn't that you're making a Rise of Legends Movie that you're announcing on Tuesday, is it?

GreyPawn says:
Hehe. No comment.

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
ooooohhh

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
so you're either being very secretive or RoL is the best selling RTS Game ever and you're making a movie

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
the plot thickens.....

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
lol

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
as if you're doing both

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
but the Hehe is an extension, maybe decipherable via the sum of pie minus 2.9374739 times the polyhydron of an equalateral triangle of pie length x 6.3836729287 meaning Yes

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
ok... I made that up

GreyPawn says:
You'll see
.
Evolved the HG Cherub says:
i'm desperate to find out, as you can tell

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
i guess there's no chance of your tongue just slipping once?

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
is there?

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
only joking

GreyPawn says:
You want a hint?

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
YES, YES, YES!

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
PLEASE!

GreyPawn says:
Alrighty, here's your hint...

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
anyway, the latest theories involve the UK charts as they often come out on Tuesday

GreyPawn says:
kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk­kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
?

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
that's a hint?

GreyPawn says:
That's all I'm saying.

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
It's a smiley face on it's side

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
RoL Multiplayer chat emoticons

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
!

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
maybe the pack of contact cards for MSN as well

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
the plot thickens a lot

GreyPawn says:
What was my text to you, in the hint?

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk­kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

GreyPawn says:
Yup. That's it. That's all I'm saying.

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
hey wait

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
That's it!

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
you said it

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
It's emoticons!

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
hmm

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
maybe not the best thing ever but what the hell

GreyPawn says:
Feel free to share the hint.

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
maybe a post with kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk­kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
in

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
hey ive seen some

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
lets do a google search

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
hey you once said that

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
to me

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
and on the forums

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
it's a sign

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
big huge games site code

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
it might have the secret in it next to the identifying marker kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk­kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
sigh

Evolved the HG Cherub says:
I haven't got it, have i?

GreyPawn says:
Feel free to share, as I mentioned.

GreyPawn says:
You'll have to wait till Tuesday. Good talking with you!

I've spotted no discernible difference between the K's. There's no hidden message. It's just a 5x20 block of capital K's.

5. 20. k.

abcdefghijk
01234567890

K is the 11th letter in the alphabet.

Translated to decimal, here's all the information we have:
5, 20, 11.

Here's my interpretation:

5 = Five races/nations in the expansion pack?
11, 20 = Projected date of when the expansion pack comes out? (November 20, 2006?)

An expansion pack wouldn't work. It'd be rushed, and cost more money.
It wouldn't attract people, it'd push them away.

EDIT: The image style is like Multiplayer pages viewed online.... Hmmm...
(Funnily enough I almost banned myself just now)

EDIT2: It was 98 yesterday, and 100 today. It's going up in twos. Maybe RoL's bringing in 2k a day? Actually the guy counted wrong.

Get real.

There's better things to spend a tenth of a million on. . .

But if they are doing one, do it here. Then I'll have a part to play

We'd know by now though, the Staff. Though ODA might know. . .

Those K's in the screenshot look like a TV screen, so maybe BHG will announce a summer replacement show with a RoL theme, like:

Everybody Loves Zeke
Star Bolt Atlantis
(Sun) JAG
Doge Whisperer
CSI Miana

Maybe a TV commercial/movie trailer for RoL? Didn't AoE3 have one?

If that was directly copied from the conversation recording it counts 105 k's...

I really don't caree about it for now, I can wait and play plenty of games I have yet to play... Man I need to stop searching for new games every time I'm bored...

Well, I think summat might be going on.

I asked Greypawn this and he said no comment, is this summat to do with NVIDIA and the advertising they gave RoL?

The thing is that NVIDIA are sponsoring TSN, or summat (http://wsvg.tsncentral.com/, below the video thing) and it might be more than a coincidence that TSN are making an announcement on RoL.

Hopefully it's $100,000 of money from NVIDIA for a unique Multiplayer like Battlenet and $1000 of that to the first person to figure it out and post it.

I wonder. . .
