From my information the last time he was online was february 24, but for the rest is interal error so I can't see his pirate page.

I take a boat to lincoln Island to check the shack of yoha and look if I can find a rat or a hearty.

Wonders if Yoha means something other than the pirate online. Since he hasn't been once since the beginning of the year and it seems as though no one else has been in the house since then. I think that since the notes were played backwards that maybe the key is ahoy. In chat shortcuts ahoy is the f1 key. So maybe if i play the F1 key on the harpsichord it will get us somewhere.

Mmm... my instinct tells me you might be pretty close to the solution, Leoric.

Mmiimmii considers greatly what she has overheard...she does some studying of the pirates handbook of communication and reads all the shortcuts of chat...She goes to the Harpsichord and presses the F1 F2 F3 and F4 keys ...she awaits to see if anything happens....

Post  mmiimmii on Thu Sep 18, 2008 1:19 pm

Mmiimmii realizes that the reason the musician said that the harpsichord had more keys and unwerking black keys is because it is a alphbetical keyboard . So when i go over the shortcuts i come across this..F1 F3 F6 F10....and plays it(ahoy,/me laughs,good game,yohoho)all based on 1234 spaces...like it was some kind of mission impossible tetrad (a 4 note chord)...Mmiimmii also wishes to add that she hasnt done this much learning and studying since college...lol

Since only part of my reply was quoted it must just be the word ahoy that is the key. So i listen to the harpsichord and walk up to the door of riemann slums after the e note is sounded i exclaim ahoy and wait for a response.

The musician has been fired

Post  Pishkirlin on Mon Sep 22, 2008 10:55 am

The forum outage turned to be useful. I went to Descartes to check the mysterious harpsichord and I discovered that the self-styled musician was actually wrong... I think before the survey he visited the inn along with Mortesecca. Bloody artists!
So, this is actually how the keyboard looks like. As you can notice, he omitted one key... and the notes played are actually C1-C2-C3-F4. Sorry for the inconvenience.

:confused:

No, let me explain. The piano thingy where notes are played it's an internet tool... I can't edit the length of its keyboard, cause it looks like a REAL piano. Our harpsichord is a bit different, since like the musician said, it doesn't have all the keys a piano has. Just imagine the song played by the widget as it would be played on the short keyboard. Beside that, ignore to which octave a note belongs to... calling it C1 rather than C3 is just a convention among us in order to recognize said note on the keyboard. I hope I made myself clear. skeptical

Ok, I think it's time to show up again as a deus ex machina to clarify once for all one thing: forget about the F1-F12 keys on the PC keyboard. That's something OUT OF THE GAME, you play a character in a Y!PP world! How the hell could Mmiimii press the F-keys on a PC keyboard??!!!

She wasn't hitting the keys on the pc she was hitting the keys on the harpsichord. At least some of them.

Post  Blackseagull on Tue Sep 23, 2008 11:17 am

Blackseagull returns to Sage after a long voyage, and her crew mates tell her all about the disappearance of the sloop and what their investigations have discovered so far.

She goes to Descartes to examine the mysterious harpsichord and studies it carefully.

After thinking about it for a while, she thinks that the keyboard corresponds to the English alphabet and so each key corresponds to a letter (26 letters - 26 white keys, since the black ones don't work). Then she matches each letter/key with its corresponding note.

A B C D E F G - H I J K L M N - O P Q R S T U -V W X Y Z
C D E F G A B - C D E FG A B - C D E F G A B - C D E F G
-------1-------- -------2-------- -------3-------- -----4-----

The notes the harpsichord was playing were C1, C2, C3, F4 and that spells “AHOY” with the alphabet letters.

Blackseagull thinks the harpsichord seems to retrieve people’s memories. And so when you “type” a person’s name using the appropriate notes, that person’s memories are retrieved in the form of a vision like the ones Mmiimmii has experienced.

Blackseagull plays the notes that correspond to the name Mortesecca and waits to see what happens.

M - O - R - T - E - S - E - C - C - A
