April 14th, 2006

On the 14th April a new clue was released. However, no-one discovered it!

The news of the 17th April said the following:

Altador Update! - The Archivist has been expecting a new clue to reveal itself since Friday morning, and is surprised that it hasn't been found yet. Hopefully someone will discover it soon so we can figure out what exactly is going on in Altador!

Still no-one could work it out, until TNT put this clue up on the webcam:

Soon after, it was discovered.

Your clue is found in one of three of the Altadorian Shops. It is either in Exquisite Ambrosia, Illustrious Weaponry or Magical Marvels.

Go to each shop in turn.

Exquisite Ambrosia
We only sell the most delectable foods fit for heroes.

Neopian Inflation is currently at 2.77%
You have 79,315 NP to spend.

You need to make the amount of NP you have match the rate of inflation (ignore the decimal point). So in the example above, you need to put all your neopoints in the bank except 277NP like this:

Exquisite Ambrosia
We only sell the most delectable foods fit for heroes.

Neopian Inflation is currently at 2.77%
You have 277 NP to spend.

If you have picked the correct shop, an item featuring some scales will appear. If the item does not appear, you should try the next shop (but please note, the inflation rate may be different). The item that will appear depends on which shop it is:

Exquisite Ambrosia

Altadorian Chocolate Coin

Illustrious Weaponry

Altadorian Coin Purse

Magical Marvels


Once you have found your item, click on it. Please note, you will not actually buy the item, so it will not appear in your inventory.

There appears to be a strange pattern of dots on the side of this chocolate coin...

You should now return to the Archivist, who now says:

The archivist says, "Ah, an item relating to money, with another clue on it... how fascinating. What are the odds of finding such an item, I wonder? Well, off to the observatory with you."

To find this Constellation, use our Constellation Finder.

Make your way to the telescope. You need to search for the pattern that you saw in the shop. You are then able to click on the dots and join them up to create the lines. This is what you are looking for:

Congratulations! You have discovered The Collector constellation. Several other characters have comments to make on this:

The janitor says, "I've been reading this great book, '101 Ways to Calm an Infuriated Yurble.' It has a lot of good ideas for keeping my cool when I get upset about something. Although some of the ideas AREN'T SO GREAT!!" he shouts. "Whew, almost blew my top there."

The Astronomy Club members greet you warmly as you enter the room... except the club president, who glares daggers at you and growls wordlessly.

The Wocky, Korbat, and Buzz intercept you as soon as you enter. "Look, we're about to make our move. He's getting intolerable; he won't even speak to any of us, he just grunts at us, and that's only when he bothers to notice that we exist at all. We can't take this. Just watch for the signal, when we take over the club from him."

The archivist says, "As I suspected: Gordos, the Collector. There are only a few gems unlit on the ceiling of the Hall of Heroes, so that narrows down which Hero's constellation is to be found next."

He coughs. "And in that vein, I'm examining the remaining Heroes, the ones whose gems have not yet been lit. Fauna, the Gatherer; Kelland, the Thief; Jerdana, the Protector; and of course, Altador himself. I am forced to suspect that one of these Heroes may have been the traitor I spoke of before."

"I know it is unthinkable that one of them might have stolen our history, but I see no way around it. Kelland is an obvious suspect; could he have gone back to the thieving ways of his youth? Or perhaps Jerdana's power has grown to the point where she desires to challenge Altador for the kingdom. Fauna, well, I can't think of why she would do something like this... maybe beneath her outward appearance of kindness there lurks a heart of malice. And Altador himself, well... it would be unfathomable that he might destroy the history of his own kingdom, but he might have had reason. Shame, perhaps, over letting the Darkest Faerie conquer the kingdom..." He shakes his head sadly. "It is a sudden betrayal that I inevitably curse."

The Gems above the Gordos statue now glow!

The Book of Ages has also been updated with a new chapter.
