OK, I dont know the name of the age right off, but for those who have been here, should know it.

Anyway, the pic below is stumping me. I can translate the D'ni numbers easily, but the 3 corresponding rotating numbers (i am assuming) atop the poles arent so clear. Are these variations of the same number? (ie, 3 ways to write #1 etc)

You must let MYST offer up the answers you seek, if only you have eyes to see, ears to hear...and wits to rememeber.

This picture by itself isn't going to make sense. Like the rest of the "exhibits" in that room (for lack of a better term) are clues to puzzles later in the age. Take note of what you see, which symbols go with which numbers... it will make sense later on.

Those rotating colums are located in the Kadish Gallery. That entire gallery serves as clues for Kadish Tolesa.

Take notes.....take many, many notes! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It doesnt hurt to take a bunch of screen shots either http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Those are my principles. If you dont like them I have others.

Definitely. Do as Whitch2 and Groucho says: make a copy of what you see. You will need it.

Maybe, they are incriments of 10...the first pillar rotates the top: 10,100,1000. just a guess, just got to the room myself.

No rotation has nothing to do with the solution.

no the things on the pillars are not numbers.
