  • Posted by Kumar
  • Posted on August 8, 2014, 12:35 am NST



It looks like the first piece of evidence has appeared in the new Desert Diplomacy event.

» Desert Diplomacy Guide «


Update: The Desert Diplomacy FAQ has now been put up.

What are the parchment pieces I hear so much about?
You might find parchment pieces here and there when you find clues in the Desert Diplomacy. Rumour has it, once you unlock the parchment piece secret you'll find an exclusive NC item prize inside! To decipher one, you'll need a Hieroglyphic Dictionary from the NC Mall.

How many parchment pieces are there?
Well, it looks like there are many crimes to solve in the Desert Diplomacy, it's likely there will be a few parchment pieces that can be found containing different items.

What do I get for deciphering a parchment piece?
For each parchment piece, you'll receive an exclusive NC prize. You can only receive each prize once, so if you decipher all the parchment pieces, you will receive all the items.

How long do I have to use my Hieroglyphic Dictionary?
You will always be able to use your dictionary as long as you have a parchment piece in your inventory. However, the parchment pieces can only be acquired during the event and the book will only be available until August 24, 2014.

Does each parchment require a different Hieroglyphic Dictionary to open?
All parchments can be opened with a Hieroglyphic Dictionary from the NC Mall. You'll need one book per parchment piece.

Are there different items available in each parchment piece?
Yes! Each parchment piece contains different NC items.

Why can't I do anything with my Parchment Piece?
Parchment pieces will remain unread until you purchase or are gifted a Hieroglyphic Dictionary from the NC Mall.

Why can't I do anything with my Hieroglyphic Dictionary?
In order to use the Hieroglyphic Dictionary, you must have a parchment piece in your inventory. If you have not found a parchment or if it is in your Safety Deposit Box, you will not be able to use your Hieroglyphic Dictionary.

Why can't I trade for or purchase parchments pieces?
The only way to receive a parchment piece is to find it in the Desert Diplomacy.

Will I able to collect and decipher parchment pieces on my side account(s)?
No, please keep the use of the Hieroglyphic Dictionary and collection of parchment pieces solely on your main account.

Desert Diplomacy: New Clues + Grid Update
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on August 12, 2014, 9:10 am NST

If you haven't been keeping up to date, there has been a new clue every day in Desert Diplomacy! Make sure to collect them each day (or before the end of the event), as you'll most likely need to have them all on Neopets to make your final guesses when the time comes.

Today's clue involves the time 'midnight.' There may be some confusion about whether this is before or after 5:00am (or whatever other times are released). TNT has mentioned in a few places that all of the thefts took place over the course of one night, so in this case, we'd consider midnight to be before 5:00am.


We've also added a notes section to our logic grid. This is a space for you to make notes about why you might be making things the way you are, so you can remember for later.


If you have a jnAccount, you can start filling in your logic grid now, and have it saved to JN for you to come back to. If you don't have a jnAccount, then you should register one! (Or you can use the grid as a guest, and just not have it save.)

AS A NOTE: We will not be filling in the grids for you, apart from the first clue we did as an example. We may try to help clear up any confusions in later clues (like with 'midnight' above), and we may provide some alternate examples for understanding clues, but all the final grunt work will need to be on you. Think of this as a 2 week Lenny Conundrum!

And as always, check out our guide:
