Introducing: TREASURE QUEST! And the CHRONO KEY appears!

Treasure QuestTreasure Quest

One game is over, one begins; a long and winding path
of keys and gates and codes and plates and pixels and wikis and math.
A Key appears upon each First, along with tiny clues;
Your brain, the web, our catalog: the only tools you'll use.

Find the codes for every key, they'll lead you to the gate;
combine the two to find the way to treasures that await.
(Rest assured these treasures, though exciting, cool, and grand,
Are not the type of treasures you can hold within your hand).

9 keys to find, 9 gates to clear; the start of something big.
Find the codes and earn the points as through the site you'll dig.
Quests are puzzles, and puzzles are games, and games are always fun,
And now it's time to start your quest. Ready, Player One?
