Spice and Ken set up a meeting with Soleia to see what information she had that might help, but they learned that she was unable to remember anything from the time in question. Determined not to give up, Spice and Ken took Soleia to see Intoxicating the Average, a gene editor, hoping that she could help restore the memories that Soleia had lost.
They learned that a Memory Dam had been implanted in Soleia to block her memories, and they tried to erode the dam to get back a small portion of her memories. The procedure was a success and Soleia remembered that she was locked in a cold place and that the Hubur Key (one of Asherah’s 7 Key Relics) was needed to get her in and out. They realized that ShaDAO must have taken Ken to the same place and that they would need the Hubur Key to save him. Fortunately, Soleia remembered exactly who held the multi-sig wallet that contained it. But they had to pull off an awkwardly coordinated d-mezz of all 3 at once to burn the multi-sig wallet and release the unburnable relic.
With the knowledge provided by Soleia – that the 3 ShaDAO members are Stanton, Luther Radioactive and Fay from Acidic – the seeker turned to The Moderator for help. The moderator was able to give seekers some information about the ShaDAO members, but it was up to the seekers to decide in which order to perform the attacks for each. After discovering the locations of their targets, Seekers engaged in a targeted advertising campaign to carry out the attack by luring the targets to each location at block 7200. This led to the successful claim of the Hubur key by Soleia.
Quest Puzzle Solutions
Quest #4 introduced The Moderator as an interactive character in Discord as players worked to figure out what it would take to save Ken.
During the Quest, participants did the following:
Followed the breadcrumbs left in the ShaDAO docs the Moderator provided, which led them to the Exploit from Rosey in Discord. Exploitation by Rosey then gave the seeker a new role and access to the DarkNet channel.
Questers helped The Moderator decrypt a profile ShaDAO had on a CyberBroker named Soleia.
The Questers learned that to save Ken they needed the Hubur Key, which is held by ShaDAO agents in a 3-person multi-sig wallet.
Players split into teams of mind, body and soul to solve a puzzle, track down popular locations visited by each target, and send targeted ads on Twitter in an attempt to lure the targets to their locations before the coordinated attack on Block 7200 .
Find the moderator
Searchers began by receiving a message from Spice wondering if a breadcrumb trail was left by the Moderator on how to find them, as they may be the only ones who can help find Ken.
Next, seekers took a closer look at the 5 ShaDAO documents previously uncovered in Quest #3:
Searchers found a unique string found within the keywords in the metadata of the documents. There were a total of 5 strings to be found – each listed below.
