View Full Version : *Spoiler* Teledahn: Prison cells and prior knowledge of D'ni numbers

Long story short: I got to the prison cells within/beneath Teledahn and figured out that the diagram on the desk on the top floor of the mushroom tower office revealed the numbering of the metal floor plates (knowledge which is necessary to figure out which plates need to be weighted in order to open the gates). The problem is, the numbers were in D'ni.

If not for the notes I'd taken during "Riven" I would not have been able to transcribe which number was which. (I was offline so could not go look it up via Google, and even if I had been online, I would have had to quit out of the game to get to the 'net.)

My question is, did I just miss a number chart somewhere along the line (sitting on a desk, etc. -- I was pretty thorough but you never know), or did the creators of this (so far pretty awesome) game really expect encyclopedic knowledge or memory of D'ni numericals? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks in advance.

In Rel'to there is a book in the bookcase on the right that has page numbers on the bottom like a regular book.

Well... contrary to Riven there is no class room in Uru with a gadget to teach the numbers, but as far as I can recall, in Kadish Gallery you can reveal the numbers - not the whole D'ni number system, but at least the numbers under ten.

Thanks bunches to all. I did go back and see the pagination in the book in Relto. *slaps forehead* I guess I was just a little rusty in my recognition of what they represented.

I'm now done with Teledahn and have started in on what I like to call the Wile E. Coyote Age... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
