The Tower


This story begins when King Nimrod makes plans to build an enormous Tower in the town and he has a purpose in mind for it. Unfortunately the King's purpose is lost until years later the wizard Qwyfyx, upon finding some papers in the library assumes that he has at last discovered what Nimrod was thinking. But, as we find out at the end of the book, things go horribly wrong. Clearly Qwyfyx has misinterpreted Nimrod's papers or the function of the Tower has been altered after Nimrod's death.

The task for the reader is to reveal, using clues hidden in the book, what King Nimrod's true purpose for the Tower is. The solution is unambiguous and there are a number of logical steps, not to mention intuitive leaps you will need to take in order to create it.

Two years have passed and no entries have been received. For the present I have decided to withdraw the prize and will offer occasional clues to the puzzle on this site for those of you are interested. I'll try not to be too cryptic... Well maybe at first.

The first clue is: A picture is worth a thousand words.
Okay, it's been a long time between clues. Here are some pointers in the right direction:
Gems, Flowers, Splashes and Snakes - but you know that already don't you.
Look in the mirror for an order of events
No point in looking for hidden text messages and yes the polygons are important.
