Special thanks to zftm, elva, and colin for finding the four correct keys!

If you still want to try the puzzle, here are some hints:

Ages to search for keys:
[spoiler]
Ae'gura-2
Eder Gira-1
Er'cana-2
Gahreesen-1
Jalak-1
Kadish-3
Minkata-1
Neighborhood or Pubs-1
[/spoiler]

The twelve keys with messages:
[spoiler]
1. The even numbered messages are all true -- Ae'gura office.
2. 4 is true and 5 is false. -- Cartographers' Pub.
3. 1 is false and 10 is true. -- Kadish, in corner below second scope.
4. 6 and 11 are false. -- Kadish, on wall at end of vault support spoke.
5. A key is correct if and only if that key's message is true. -- Jalak, in the air above central pillar.
6. 4 and 11 are true. -- Minkata, cave 4.
7. A key is correct if and only if that key's message is false. -- Er'cana, behind track support at harvester's start location.
8. Either 1 or 7 is false. -- Er'cana pit with broken support.
9. 6 is false and 8 is true. -- Gahreesen, inside gear.
10. 3 is false or 7 is true. -- Below broken library balcony.
11. Either 8 is false or 5 is true. -- Deep in Gira lava canyon.
12. 4 and 7 are true. -- Inside one of the four Kadish lift pillars.
[/spoiler]

And finally, the correct four keys based on the messages:
[spoiler]
1, 5, 6, 11.
[/spoiler]

Message from Alexander:
It's very exciting; we've found the four keys and are almost ready to insert them in the Great Zero and unlock the treasure! We just need to know which key goes in which keyhole. I'm afraid that just randomly testing them could trigger a trap. Any suggestions about the order of the keys would be greatly appreciated! It's probably a deceptively simple clue that Inshir left somewhere.
Also, I have to warn you that if participation doesn't increase from last time, we'll have no choice but to close the project. Even if someone solves the puzzles, our sponsors on the surface will pull funding if the community doesn't show enough interest. If the diabolical nature of the last puzzle scared you away, don't worry; the worst is definitely over now that we've found the keys!

(separate) Message from Ariana:
Everyone, please be sure to read my translations of Inshir's journal in Phil's Relto! They provide major insights about Inshir's life and motives. I'd hate to tell you, but the treasure may not be the kind of treasure Alex thinks it is. Just my personal opinion. Anyway, the journal might contain clues to the key puzzle that I overlooked. Maybe you'll find something interesting.

New message from Alexander!

Shorah All,

Sorry for the really long delay. I wouldn't blame you if you've totally forgotten our mission. I've had major KI issues, tons of problems on the surface competing for my time-- you don't want to know. But now there's finally been a breakthrough! For the longest time, I was hesitant to place the four keys into the keyholes because there could be a trap. Then one day I was reading Inshir's journal and realized that he repeated the words "ascend one way, descend another" much more often than seemed necessary. I decided to take a leap of faith and apply these words to the keys: I placed the keys into the keyholes so that the key numbers were in descending order as the keyhole number increased. Much to my relief, it worked!

The Great Zero displayed a new message saying that we're almost there; there's just one more step. I'll tell you all about it at the next meeting: Saturday, January 12 at 13:00 KI Time in Alexander Rush's Hood. I'd prefer to meet as early as possible, but if too many people can't make this date, I'd be willing to postpone. As always, new volunteers are always welcome and you can read the forum or contact Simon if you need anything.

The treasure is almost ours!

-A.R.

Here's the chatlog from the meeting:

[spoiler](01/12 15:08:51) Chat.log started...
(01/12 15:09:13) Alexander Rush: I'm going to go ahead and get started if that's all right; others can filter in and read the log
(01/12 15:09:24) Zesty of Xeniphers: Yes i think so
(01/12 15:09:46) Alexander Rush: So, first thing you need to know is that Ariana is no longer with us
(01/12 15:10:14) Alexander Rush: Not that she's dead, but she's a traitor
(01/12 15:10:30) Alexander Rush: She was always envious because I got paid more
(01/12 15:10:42) Alexander Rush: And now she wants to sabotage the project
(01/12 15:11:46) Alexander Rush: She's invented this ridiculous story, something about forbidden Bahro power, and she wants us not to continue unlocking the treasure
(01/12 15:12:18) Alexander Rush: I even offered her more money, but she wouldn't hear of it... she's set on revenge
(01/12 15:12:43) Alexander Rush: So if you meet her, don't listen to her. She wants to sabotage the project. Understand?
(01/12 15:13:34) Alexander Rush: Now let's get down to business.
(01/12 15:14:01) Alexander Rush: So I finally managed to fit the correct keys into the Great Zero scopes, as I described on the forum
(01/12 15:14:27) Alexander Rush: And then the scopes displayed a new message from Inshir
(01/12 15:15:09) Alexander Rush: saying that we're almost done, but six people need to complete some kind of marker hunt to finalize the opening of the Rift.
(01/12 15:15:52) Alexander Rush: And each scope also displays six red lights and six white lights
(01/12 15:16:31) Alexander Rush: I believe those are meant to track the progress of the six people
(01/12 15:16:58) Alexander Rush: Also there are floating glyphs around the Great Zero, which I assume are clues to finding the markers
(01/12 15:17:51) Alexander Rush: So we need to recruit at least six people to find the markers
(01/12 15:18:07) Alexander Rush: And the message implies that you have to pass through them in a particular order
(01/12 15:18:39) Alexander Rush: So listen carefully to how to go about this quest.
(01/12 15:19:08) Alexander Rush: We've arranged for the marker mission that tracks your progress to give each Rift marker you find a unique ID
(01/12 15:19:49) Alexander Rush: So once you've found the markers, you need to tell us in which order you pass through them by giving us the IDs in the correct order
(01/12 15:20:01) Alexander Rush: Us meaning me or Simon
(01/12 15:20:08) Zesty of Xeniphers: Ok
(01/12 15:20:27) Alexander Rush: Welcome Elva
(01/12 15:20:35) Zesty of Xeniphers waves hello
(01/12 15:20:57) elva: shorah alexander
(01/12 15:21:18) elva: hello all
(01/12 15:21:19) Alexander Rush: Short version of the story is, we're looking for Rift markers to finish unlocking the Treasure
(01/12 15:21:38) Alexander Rush: Six people need to find them and pass through them in the correct order
(01/12 15:21:53) elva: ok sounds like a plan lol
(01/12 15:22:05) Alexander Rush: And you need to give us the marker IDs in the order you choose to pass through them
(01/12 15:22:15) Alexander Rush: So that we can know if that helps with the lock
(01/12 15:22:26) Alexander Rush: Also ignore Ariana because she is a traitor
(01/12 15:23:26) Alexander Rush: So, thank you for coming today; you're my most loyal supporters
(01/12 15:23:33) Zesty of Xeniphers: :-)
(01/12 15:23:47) Zesty of Xeniphers: You have hello form kirk of xeniphers
(01/12 15:23:50) Alexander Rush: But we're going to need more help for this one, so please share the mission with others
(01/12 15:24:03) Zesty of Xeniphers: I think you have 5 of us here
(01/12 15:24:14) elva: we love your games
(01/12 15:24:15) Zesty of Xeniphers: 2 missing but present in spirit
(01/12 15:24:34) Alexander Rush: Haha, hello others and thank you!
(01/12 15:24:39) elva: they stimulate the little grey cells lol
(01/12 15:24:50) Alexander Rush: Any questions about the mission?
(01/12 15:24:57) Alexander Rush: Or the project in general?
(01/12 15:25:07) Zesty of Xeniphers: Its clear so far
(01/12 15:25:16) Zesty of Xeniphers: Do we work togeter ?
(01/12 15:25:21) Zesty of Xeniphers: Together?
(01/12 15:25:27) Zesty of Xeniphers: The 6 of us ?
(01/12 15:25:39) elva: no i don't think so
(01/12 15:25:41) Alexander Rush: Yes, you can if you want.
(01/12 15:25:54) Alexander Rush: But each person submits their order individually
(01/12 15:26:08) Zesty of Xeniphers: Well kirk and i always play as a team
(01/12 15:26:14) Alexander Rush: Or they can come in one message, but one submission per person
(01/12 15:26:25) elva: can you tell me about the project please
(01/12 15:26:48) Alexander Rush: Because you count as two people for the purposes of getting six people to finish the quest
(01/12 15:27:02) Zesty of Xeniphers: Ok got it :)
(01/12 15:27:12) Zesty of Xeniphers: Thank you
(01/12 15:27:26) Zesty of Xeniphers: Will you send us the game now ?
(01/12 15:27:42) Alexander Rush: Well, basically we found a message that says there's a treasure hidden by a D'ni guy named Inshir, and that the lock is in the Great Zero
(01/12 15:27:46) elva: and if we work as a team do we all need to submit or just a spokesperson for the team
(01/12 15:27:56) Alexander Rush: Spokesperson is fine
(01/12 15:28:24) Zesty of Xeniphers: So you have 2 teams here and 5 people :)
(01/12 15:28:24) Alexander Rush: And so we found and fitted the keys correctly, and now Inshir says there's this one task left
(01/12 15:28:55) Alexander Rush: Yes, and Simon informs me that more people want the mission, so there should be enough if everyone finishes
(01/12 15:29:07) Alexander Rush: All right let me send it now
(01/12 15:29:21) elva: bring it on alex we are waiting with baited breath!
(01/12 15:29:35) Zesty of Xeniphers: Indeed !!!
(01/12 15:29:51) Zesty of Xeniphers: Thank you
(01/12 15:30:09) Alexander Rush: Dated 7/20/12
(01/12 15:32:16) Alexander Rush: 3. The Opening of the Rift
(01/12 15:34:03) Alexander Rush: Starting in the Great Zero would be a good idea
(01/12 15:34:48) Zesty of Xeniphers: i thought so :)
(01/12 15:34:58) elva: thanks for the tip
(01/12 15:35:03) Alexander Rush: Thank you for doing most of the work... finding those keys was apparently quite difficult
(01/12 15:35:04) Zesty of Xeniphers: Kirks says thank you too
(01/12 15:35:15) Zesty of Xeniphers: His connection is too bad to enter the game
(01/12 15:35:29) Zesty of Xeniphers: But kirk and i found them :)))
(01/12 15:35:36) elva: a challenge lol
(01/12 15:35:46) Alexander Rush: All right I need to go distribute to others, thanks for coming today!
(01/12 15:35:57) zftm: thank you
(01/12 15:35:59) Zesty of Xeniphers: You are welcome and have a great day
(01/12 15:35:59) Alexander Rush: And check the forum for updates
(01/12 15:36:24) elva: thanks for your efforts
(01/12 15:36:37) elva waves hello
(01/12 15:36:42) Zesty of Xeniphers waves hello
(01/12 15:36:48) Alexander Rush waves goodbye
(01/12 15:38:48) ...Chat.log stopped.[/spoiler]

The mission has been sent to everyone who requested it plus some previous participants. If you want it and don't have it, please let me know.

Also, a PM to me or a KImail to AOEC or Alexander would be a great way to communicate which order of markers you choose. Good luck!

My buddy and I finally started the latest game earlier. Hope it won't be long until Uru is back up and we'll be able to resume. ^^

And oh that HORRIBLE feeling when your KI freezes and a marker game resets. At the same progress spot. Twice!!
