Please tell me things will eventually make sense around here.
I am at the school - I know I am supposed to be learning something but I'll be darned if I know where to begin.
I have watched the 'teacher' but he is speaking in what I assume is D'ni. played the 'fishing game - thought it was trying to teach me the numbers - if so, I am completely stupid!! Seen the fruit and examined the symbols on the wall - are they in numerical order? Is there also an alphabet to learn?
Helllllllllllllp! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Hello Andrick, and never fear, it does get better; you will finally understand what needs done.

School, OK, but this time the writing on the wall is of no help--don't worry about that. And don't worry about the teacher, likes to hear his own voice. Ahhh, numbers, could that be of interest? You bet, got to know your numbers to solve some of the other puzzles on Riven. So play with that game, note the symbols at the bottom as you listen to the clicks you hear when the figure drops toward the pan. Tried counting the number of ticks you hear? Oh, and one more thing to know, make sure to write down the symbols you see and what they represent--from the tick sounds you heard. After you get these first few, you must figure out the pattern for the next numbers up to 25. Not to hard, just look at the pattern for the first ones you see.

Thank you - I had counted the clicks but hadn't written anything down. I assumed (we all know what that means) that I'd be bale to see the pattern without keeping notes.
I'll consider this a valuable lesson learned. Thanks, again, for your help.

You are most welcome. Riven, unlike Myst or Exile, almost requires you to keep copious notes, because of it vastness. But not to worry, we all learned that little lesson. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
