A Quest for Heroes! – American Cancer Society Benefit Interactive Event 1 year 3 months ago #109

Okay I have a couple of strange ideas.

The clues we have:
“Time marches ever on and on
Yet past is sought when naught is spawn
Whence comes the block from annum based
A gift is given when it’s placed”
Place fourth the blocks
In past we’ve seen
But in a way
To match the teen”
and we have a 0,1,2 and (1-6)

Time marches on and on- perhaps a clock? so instead of trying to make 100 we instead need to make a clock math problem that reaches 1 oclock - like 12 plus 01
Yet past is sought when naught is spawn- naught is spawn make me think "equals 0"

place fourth the blocks-- fourth is spelled, well, how it's spelled. not "forth". So which number did we place 4th last time?

but in a way to match the teen-
two idea. One- make two times that will be the same in military time (like 1 and 13)
or
for some strange reason I'm thinking of alice in wonderland- time , the march hare, a teen...
the mad hatter had a 10/6, but I can't think of what to do with the 2

so probably more a clock puzzle

2015, the year the Garnet cube Ioun stone came out. 2 was the last number from the last placement, year is covered, the past is covered, constitution is endurance going on and on.... maybe I'm reading too much into this lol

I actually kind of like that answer. If the year of the Garnet Cube is not the answer then I would think that Melissa may be on the right track.

If there's agreement, I'll do that. No math but 2, 0, 1, 5 in the slots .

Placing the 4 blocks in the depression feels like a satisfying conclusion to answering this riddle. Your confidence peaks, as the hand retreats into the Gooey cube and three loud encouraging dings resound within the chamber echoing off the walls.

Waiting expectantly for the prize to appear you are shocked to see the d6 block shoot out of the Gooey cube, yet not directly at anyone in the party. Watching it fly by with relief, which only lasts but a brief moment, the block ricochets off the wall behind you, nails Joshua in the temple knocking him unconscious, then bounces to slam into the side of Melissa with such force it knocks her spinning to the ground while you all hear a bone cracking crunch, but keeps on going to Charles landing squarely between his legs. Joshua has dropped motionless to the floor having been concussed, Melissa yelps in pain from a fractured arm, Charles retches and drops to his knees holding himself in a futile attempt to ward off the pain searing through his loins vomiting up his lunch.

The block clatters on the ground rolling to a stop at your feet.

The hand reemerges with the three other blocks laid out in the order you placed them and the empty depression for the 4th beckons you idly.

The slivery cube continues to be suspended within the Gooey cube poking part way out every so often. The much darker cube, can still be seen, though more deeply inside.

What do you do?

After seeing Charles crumple to the ground in pain, I don my codpiece and insert the last block in the remaining depression with a 6 facing outward.

Ahhh… alas poor Chad, we knew him well.

The second wrong answer results in him being grabbed by a second pseudopod and dragged into the Gooey cube quick as a flash. His last thoughts were strangely thinking it was kind of like falling into quicksand you know? Or even how smoothly Quicksilver is drawn.

The d6 resets, the other blocks stay in the same location shimmering with a silvery tinge.

The voice speaks… “did someone mention something about a year?”
