Guildgate super secret code

Post by mystical_tutor » Sat Jan 26, 2013 4:06 pm

For the 5% of you that know what it is without Googling it, get out your Captain Midnight Secret Decoder Ring.

I don't think this is just a misprint or a printer flubb because it is both on my English and Korean cards.

Note the flavor text on the RTR Guildgate cards. It must be a code.

Are the other languages like this? If so I need a set in each language for my "pages of interest" collection.

I can send you the Japanese Gates, as I should have a full set of them. I'll add them to the "stack."

I can confirm that this also happens in Spanish:

Selesnya: v
Azorius: e, n
Golgari: g, o, á
Izzet: o, m, e, i
Rakdos: i, r

LOL 8-[ 8-[ 8-[ 8-[ 8-[ 8-[ 8-[ 8-[

Saw this on face book a while ago

The Guildgates in both Return to Ravnica and Gatecrash have letters in the flavour text which are out of alignment with the others.

Azorius: TIFI
Izzet: HLRC
Rakdos: EDAA
Golgari: GSV
Selesnya: UON

when rearranged, spelling: THEGUILDSOFRAVNICA

Orzhov: WEYO
Dimir: ISET
Gruul: LTAH
Boros: LRCE
Simic: DOHR

when rearranged, spelling: WILLDESTROYEACHOTHER

The result: "THE GUILDS OF RAVNICA WILL DESTROY EACH OTHER"

I'll bet that was "leaked" as I don't think anyone ever picked up on it accidently. I got a hint about it and started looking and even then didn't find them all.

Clay! I woulld much appreciate a set in Japanese.

Would some of the rest of you get me the other languages?

I will build pages for them in my collection.

The flavor text for Dragon's Maze is different than the other two sets but I have not been able to figure out the letters yet (need beeter than a 4x I guess).

Wow, to be young again and be able to see and hear and.... well, to be young again.

Thanks so much.

Would it be asking too much to have you do it in French also? I plan to make a set of each language I can get. German has been offered, I have English and Korean, Haven't asked yet but hoping that those that helped so far will with this set too.
The lands should be easy to get as there is one in each booster.

Hi all,

here is the German solution for the Dragon's Maze puzzle:

Azorius: B R T D E
Boros: A L G E T
Dimir: S N N N E
Golgari: S G E N I
Gruul: L E R D S
Izzet: D T D B R
Orzhov: I I U E U
Rakdos: A H D U T
Selesnija: B Ö I R
Simic: Y S L N

"BIS DAS LABYRINTH GELÖST UND DER GILDENBUND ERNEUERT IST"

Now I immediately need to relax and recover my old yes from these tiny letters! :-O

:dance:

How about a sweet young Korean woman to give you an eye massage?

Hehe, sounds great :-D ... But after looking at the Korean letters I have deep respect for any Korean trying to solve the puzzle. THAT would really hurt my eyes! :wink:
