Observatory Puzzles[edit | edit source]

Observatories will always have the same flavor of text and puzzle together, and are generally solved by following the pattern of rotation:

The solution for the Korvax Observatory puzzle 2 is obtained as follows:

3908 - 9083 - 0839 - ****

Since 3908 becomes 9083, you should take the left-most digit and place it to the right, so 0839 becomes 8390.

This is called a rotation to the left.

Puzzle 1[edit | edit source]


Flavor Text:

I stand at the terminal and watch a beacon from an unknown star endlessly play itself out on the screen. The pattern seems clear, but what to enter?

Puzzle: 2738 - 7382 - 3827 - ****

  1. 8273
  2. 7238
  3. 3278


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

I discover a location within the distant stars!

and incorrect:

The observatory does not get a response from the infinite and unimaginable space above it. I am quite alone.

Puzzle 2[edit | edit source]


Flavor Text:

The observatory does not get a response from the infinite and unimaginable space above it.

I am quite alone. A beacon flickers on screen, received from a distant point in space.


My fingers hover above the terminal, ready to enter the code to reveal the location, but what numbers do I enter?

Puzzle: 3908 - 9083 - 0839 - ****

  1. 8390
  2. 8039
  3. 0839


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

I enter the digits and wait. The location of a distant point in space is revealed to me.

and incorrect:

There is no response. The beacon's origin remains unknown.

Puzzle 3[edit | edit source]


Flavor Text:

The observatory's sterile, functional layout suggests its former overseer could have been electronic in origin. Judging by the decades-old beacon flashing on screen, this entity left this place long ago. Perhaps if I can decipher the code I can learn where the beacon originated?

Puzzle: 9162 - 1629 - 6291 - ****

  1. 2916
  2. 6192
  3. 1962


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

Success. I learn of a new location in the cosmos.

and incorrect:

My attempts prove futile. The dark void above sends no response to my code.

Puzzle 4[edit | edit source]


Flavor Text:

The image of the observatory's former electronic overseer flickers on the console next to the flash of the beacon indicator. I wonder how long it waited to receive such a signal from an unknown part of space? Perhaps I can send the reply the overseer never could. But first I must decipher the code.

Puzzle: 5336 - 3365 - 3653 - ****

  1. 6533
  2. 3653
  3. 3566


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

The stars reveal their secret. I have discovered a new world within the infinite void.

and incorrect:

There is no response. The beacon's secret remains unknown to me.

Puzzle 5[edit | edit source]


Flavor Text:

The facility is more like a science lab than an observatory, the star gazing equipment sitting amidst a sea of advanced experiments. Perhaps the former custodian was too preoccupied to notice the beacon blinking invitingly on screen. If I can work out the code, I'm sure I can decipher its origin.

Puzzle: 4366 - 3664 - 6643 - ****

  1. 6436
  2. 4663
  3. 3643


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

Success. I punch in the numbers and the beacon reveals the location of a new location within the cosmos.

and incorrect:

I punch in the numbers but the beacon does not divulge its secret.

Puzzle 6[edit | edit source]


Flavor Text:

As I stand at the terminal tiny drones go about a series of perfunctory cleaning routines within the pristine observatory. Clearly the former overseer was a stickler for cleanliness but less conscientious about monitoring incoming communications from distant reaches of space. A beacon blinks invitingly on the monitor. If I can enter the correct access code perhaps I could make a valuable discovery.

Puzzle: 7354 - 3547 - 5473 - ****

  1. 4735
  2. 3547
  3. 3574


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

The code is correct. The beacon's mystery is revealed to me.

and incorrect:

The code is incorrect. The beacon's origin remains a mystery.
