I was asked after I posted my runes last week to also share the puzzle that these runes appear in. As you wish!
This puzzle appears in my forthcoming adventure Descent Into Darkness (the sequel to the Staff of Suha and Tallinn’s Tower). During a trek through some caverns, the adventurers come across a square chamber, 30 feet by 30 feet, with runes carved into the tiles of the floor. It soon becomes apparent that some of these tiles have solid pillars beneath them while others are false floors that lead to a nasty fall. The runes give a clue to which tiles are solid and which are not.
The party is entering from the tunnel on the left side of the map and is trying to get across the chamber to the tunnel on the right side.
Any PC who speaks elven recognizes these runes as representing the numbers 1 through 8 (the number of lines in each rune corresponds to the number it represents).
While tiles are safe, and which lead to pits?
The PCs enter from the west side of the map and are heading east (left to right)
Hint 1: If you need a hint, mouse over the next section of text (white text on a white background: Keen-eyed PCs can spot the rune that equates to the number 1 carved over the tunnel on the far side of the room (the east wall).
Hint 2: They can also spot the rune that represents the number 3 carved into the south wall.
Hint 3: The rune for the number 7 is carved into the north wall.
Are you able to figure out the puzzle?
