Description

After solving certain riddles or anagrams, you may come across a sliding puzzle. Solve it to continue.

Put your navigation, survival and combat skills to the test with this type of clue! Many of these locations will require you dig in dangerous and hostile environments, so come prepared!
"X Marks the Spot". There be treasure or another set of challenges that be awaiting ye!
