I am really stuck on this one. I have a feeling that its something to do with the location in the book itself rather than the location on the map, but i just can’t work out what im supposed to do. Any hints on top of the 3 clues would be much appreciated.

I’m assuming you found the two numbers and replaced the keys by their values.

Did you find the dragon somewhere else in the book? Have a look in the Grimoire at the end, and please let us know if you’re still lost in the academy.

I am not getting this.
I have figured out
B = the answer for key 2 = dragon = located in the map at the end of the book
A= the answer for key 1 = the answer for key 1 is “check out the magicalphabet at the end of the book”

Hello and welcome. Your key 2, dragon, is correct. However , your key 1 is not. Follow the link in a previous post and redo your search. Let us know what you are solving so we can help you. How did you solve key A= key 1?

Figured it out thanks.
I thought it was : the first symbol is “B” and B equals 2. Not tbat we had to do maths. Thanks for the assist udexia crew. Great book! I am having lots of fun.

Someone just tell me the answer, please. I’ve read up and down this thread, translated the French thread, and I still don’t know what I’m supposed to do.

Working backwards goto the page in the back titled "A map of Udexia" and find the answer. Arrive at LAB by using key 6; going backwards gives the dragon on the map which is key 2. Hint #3 leads us to the map of Udexia and the dragon. Trust me, I learned to study and remember what is on each page of this escape book in order to graduate.
The symbols “B” and “A” on the keys corresponding to the symbols in the grid of roman number and number. To solve “A” find the sum of the numbers up and down in each column. To solve “B” find the sum of roman numbers in each row. By the way, I too have translated the french posts.

What the heck am I missing with this one How did a dragon come into play. I am not getting it AT ALL. I can decipher the two keys in that the first one is B and the second one is A and I can correlate those letters to numbers 2 and 1 the key for 2 is start and the key for 1 is to check out the Magicalphabet

Then the first hint asks me what are numbers? A and B worth? so, I guess I’m adding 1+2 to get 3?

Then hint 2 asks what are the keys to puzzles A and B [/spoiler] which I’ve already established are [spoiler]start and checkout the Magicalphabet

What am I missing? Clearly my logic is not working for this one. And even if I stretch myself and find the dragon on page 3, which is the numerical value for A and B I still don’t understand how we figure out that we can find him in the lab

Thanks for this, we had to read it 3x to even understand where we went wrong but nothing else helped! The puzzles get more opaque as the book goes on I guess

All I have is number 62. When I am typing the answer, it says this is a first step to solve the puzzle. Could anyone be so kind and explain to me the puzzle step by step thank you. PS I have no idea why should I look for a dragon and use the map

Alright. I get it. Had to do it myself because sadly I didn’t get the answer

I will explain from the beginning and take you through the riddle. The answer is not given but everything else is explained.

As you can see you have a table with Roman and Arabic numbers from 1 to 4. They are mixed, not put in order. Do that upright. There are also two symbols that have to be changed with the use of the Magicalalphabet. You will get BA.

When you put the numbers vertically in each row you will get sets of numbers - (I II III IV) 1539, 2_28, 6084, 7173.
As you can see one set doesn’t have one number (2_28).

The first and last numbers in each set make the same number, as well the middle ones.

The first and last number give us 10 (1_ _ 9 =10, 2_ _8 =10 and soo on) and the middle ones give 8.

BA has to be changed into numbers as well, so B is 2 and A is not given yet.

But on the basis of calculation the missing number in the set is 6.

At the bottom of the page you have two keys. We changed them before into BA, and later into 2 and 6. You have to scan QR code from these in the book. After scanning you will see the dragon and arrows. The dragon is on the map at the end of the book. Follow the directions and you will get the answer.

This puzzle #23 is confusing people because the Key 2 answer is not “START”, but a picture of the DRAGON from the Map of Udexia. It is not obvious to record the dragon picture, so early on in the book.
