Ancient Castle Sightings

From Cities

Jump to: navigation, search

Main results (the castle likes standing stones, totems, shrines, glaciers, cities) have been found and no further effort was put into finding an exact pattern - there probably isn't any. I don't see the necessity for keeping this page. Flt 12:58, 11 April 2007 (BST)

There's patterns in there that haven't been identified yet. Darksatanic 13:49, 12 April 2007 (BST)

I'm not sure how to add it to the table so I'll put it here. One south from the Shrine of the Light. Billwopeh 20:27, 16 September 2007 (BST)

As and when I recall, I'll add what my Talking Astrolabe has to say on the matter in the table above, using italics to show it's unconfirmed. Highly unlikely I'll be in a position to confirm the locations, but if I am, I'll put them in regular text. If anybody who does find the Ancient Castle wishes to confirm it's location by not using italics that's fine by me. Darksartago 20:05, 12 September 2006 (BST)

Since I became a Smith I my Astrolabe shows the next two waypoints. Excellent! Rockefellow 12:17, 3 October 2006 (BST)
I'm giving up. The castle seems to enjoy spending time at 1E 90N, but I don't see any other pattern :( Rockefellow 10:23, 11 October 2006 (BST)
Look at the regions it goes to, not the specific locations. Darksatanic 10:45, 11 October 2006 (BST)
I'm getting two waypoints from my Astrolabe after killing the castle guards in order, without having spoken to the Master Armourer or having changed careers. Greycat 00:35, 17 May 2007 (BST)

I think I start getting a little glimpse of the big picture. Thus I postulate the following theory:

  1. If the Ancient Castle jumps somewhere within the 'Kingdom, this is always close to a Standing Stone, Shrine or one of the Cities
  2. If the Ancient Castle jumps somewhere in Oz, this is always close to a Totem or the Golf Course (no idea what's so special there...) close to Atlantish.
  3. It will visit the 'Kingdom at least every third hop and do the trip to Oz at least once in two days.
  4. Everything else is completely random and done only to confuse us.

Feel free to confirm/rebute/discuss any of these rules. Maybe there's even more to this. Rockefellow 12:47, 11 October 2006 (BST)

I don't think the program actually uses these rules (like go to the 'Kingdom every 3 jumps) but we can still rely on them for travel planning. Couldn't some of the totem jumps be considered "close to a city" ? Then the golf course would be a suburb of Atlantish --Solune 14:23, 11 October 2006 (BST)
I think the Golf Course jump is the same as the spots close to a city in the 'Kingdom.
For the jumps that don't lead to the 'Kingdom I think there might be a simple 25% probability where to go to (25% between 100 and 200N, 25% between 0 and 100S and so on)Rockefellow 16:29, 17 October 2006 (BST)
