I know the site that I have to go to, but the tanga thread salters have been more condescending than helpful.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

This one is more of a scavenger hunt...

Read the first part of the puzzle and then go to Ze's site.

Find the section referred to in the first part and then hunt for the exact "instance" referred to by the second part.

Use typical Tanga tactics to apply the third part and arrive at your answer.

EDIT: To add a pinch of salt...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Only two of the "instances" have enough words to be considered.

Oh nevermind I got it. I thought I had to look for the words in the puzzle in the descriptions, but I just had to watch the video and use the clues.

I cannot get the blow puzzle.

I found the page at zefrank.com. I know what nickname the four letters refer to. But for the life of me, I can't make the list of words mean anything.

The salt on the tanga blog has just been confusing me, I think.

Today's was pretty straight-forward, so I'm betting this board's gonna be quiet till tomorrow.

Hmmm, "straightforward"? I'm just not seeing it then.

Edit: Got the answer (from a combination of Tanga Discussion comments and Crossword Solver). Can someone please explain the regular solve method to me? I know what I was supposed to do but can't think of anything appropriate.

Solving method:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Search for "ouch." Find the graphic with the five floating heads. Hear what they say when they collide. Apply Tanga numbers.

Duhh! This could have been so straightforward, if I'd had the sound turned on. blush


That should teach me when it comes to Ze Frank puzzles.

Well, I numbered all the letters in the alphabet - and then took the ones that had no remainder when divided by the time. But that gave me LI (or IL) neither of which is the answer... Then someons says "make sure the alphabet doesn't get involved" on the Tanga blog.
Now I'm lost...

edit: And found.

PRETTY SALTY

Sweet. I had tried the numbering too, but then looking at your reply and trying to apply it gave me the blessed 'aha' moment.

Thanks!

I did divide that way but the word I came up with doesn't work. Will keep trying. Thank you though!
