Observatory Puzzles[edit | edit source]

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

The solution for the Vy'keen puzzle 2 is obtained as follows:

4634 - 6344 -3446 - ****

Since 4634 becomes 6344, you should take the left-most digit and place it to the right, so 3446 becomes 4463.

This is called a rotation to the left.

Puzzle 1[edit | edit source]

Flavor Text:

A beacon sent long ago from a distant system awaits my response. Three numbers are visible above an empty input box. I think I know what comes next...

Puzzle: 1702 - 7021 - 0217 - ****

  1. 2170
  2. 1720
  3. 1702


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

I discover a location within the distant stars.

and incorrect:

The observatory remains dormant. The beacon does not respond.

Puzzle 2[edit | edit source]

Flavor Text:

Images of shattered Sentinels are displayed like trophies on this terminal screen. Seems the observatory's former overseer had a penchant for hunting these machines. Perhaps their time would have been better spent monitoring incoming beacons like the one that flashes on a monitor before me. If I can enter the correct access code perhaps I can discover where it originated from.

Puzzle: 4634 - 6344 -3446 - ****

  1. 4463
  2. 6344
  3. 4634


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

The observatory hums into life as the location of a new world is displayed on the screen.

and incorrect:

The observatory remains dormant. No new locations are revealed to me.

Puzzle 3[edit | edit source]

Flavor Text:

Judging by the imposing size and weapons shown on the identification ID image that glares at me as I boot up the system, the station's overseer must have originated from a warrior race. The lifeform probably left long before the arrival of the beacon that now winks tantalisingly next to it. If I can enter the correct code perhaps I can learn its secrets.

Puzzle: 5920 - 9205 - 2059 - ****

  1. 0592
  2. 5920
  3. 2059


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

The numbers I enter are correct. The location of a new world appears on the screen.

and incorrect:

The number I enter has no effect. The beacon's origin remains a mystery.

Puzzle 4[edit | edit source]

Flavor Text:

Images show that this observatory was once a warzone. Mangled metal, scorched walls and the heavily decayed corpses of a dozen hulking lifeforms betray a brutal firefight. Now repaired, whatever transpired it must have happened before the beacon that flashes on screen arrived. Perhaps if I enter the correct code I can decipher it.

Puzzle: 3987 - 9873 - 8739 - ****

  1. 7398
  2. 3987
  3. 9873


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

Thanks to its recent repairs the observatory still functions. It leaps into life as I enter the digits, showing the location of a new destination deep within the cosmos.

and incorrect:

Perhaps the observatory still needs repairs, or perhaps the code I entered was incorrect. For whatever reason, I fail to decipher the beacon.

Puzzle 5[edit | edit source]

Vy'keen Observatory Puzzle 5 is the only exception to the general rule of solving Observatory puzzles, as it requires rotating the numbers to the right as opposed to to the left.
Flavor Text:

The heat within the observatory is oppressive, caused by the banks of powerful additional power units beneath my feet used to boost this facility's signal - and to receive others from distant worlds. I'm distracted by a beacon that flickers on a nearby monitor. If I can work out the access code, perhaps I can decipher it.

Puzzle: 7771 - 1777 - 7177 - ****

  1. 7717
  2. 7177
  3. 7771


Entering the correct code will yield the text:

Ignoring the heat, I punch in the code. I'm rewarded with a location within a distant system.

and incorrect:

I type in a code but the beacon continues to flash, revealing nothing.
