On the Subject of The Jewel Vault
How did the Ancient Greeks make such an advanced lock? It must be aliens!
- The module consists of a locked five-wheel door, a compass rose, a reset button (bottom left) and a submit button (bottom right).
- The outermost-wheel contains eight Greek symbols and cannot be directly controlled. The other wheels each contain four different coloured jewels and can be rotated.
There are eight potential jewels that you may encounter. Each jewel can only appear once on any given wheel:
- Amethyst (purple)
- Emerald (green)
- Glass (silver/clear)
- Onyx (black)
- Poudretteite (pink)
- Ruby (red)
- Sapphire (blue)
- Scapolite (yellow)
- To solve the module, set the correct jewels to the correct orientation and press the submit button.
- Submitting an incorrect configuration of jewels will cause a strike, shuffle the wheels and change the orientation.
- Turning the wheels a total of thirteen times without resetting will shuffle the wheels and change the orientation.
- Pressing the reset button will return the wheels to their original orientations.
The central orb of the door changes colour depending on the action currently being undertaken:
- White = stationary
- Yellow = manual movement
- Blue = manual reset
- Pink = limiter shuffle
- Red = strike shuffle
- Green = solved
