For Shadows Over Loathing players who stuck at the Mudhenge puzzle, this is how you are intended to solve the puzzle at Mudhenge.
How to conquer Mudhenge WITHOUT trial and error
First, you need to move aimlessly through random… henges? After some time, you’ll stumble upon the phase “Drown’d Mary’s crown is buried past the hewed tower.” (This is found on both a pillar that requires some Mysticality to read, and in a bag which is guarded by a Gatorman.)
How does this phrase help us figure out which path to go through? Well, the answer is simple: we need to separate out the letters which correspond to one of the four cardinal directions.
“droWN’d mary’S croWN iS buriEd paSt thE hEWEd toWEr”
WN S WN E S E EWE WE
But what sort of direction is ‘west-east’, anyway? Well, if you’ll recall what the lighthouse keeper in Crystaldream said, ‘west’ as we know it was actually rebranded as ‘new north’ a while ago. This means that we need to replace ‘west’ with ‘north’ and ‘north’ with ‘west’, like so:
NW S NW S E S E ENE NE
North-west, South, North-west, South, East, South, East, East-north-east, North-east.
If you’d rather think in terms of numbers, then that’s 121252543 (from left to right).
