    The ‘spiral’ in the 500 clue is confusing… I think this is a game about plotting lines on a map, so suspect the spiral is a maths plotted spiral, based on a line… probably a golden spiral to fit the golden bit of the book title. But it could just as well be a historic feature or a place. Any thoughts?

    i think it’s the lille citadel

    because a 5-pointed star is made from a spiral with four centres:

    That’s a really interesting theory on the pentagram. I hadn’t thought of that possibility before.

    I’m a bit late to the competition but when I read it my head screamed the Fibonacci spiral. The author seemed to like science in art.

    I think you’re right, a plotted spiral seems most likely to me too. There are quite a few clue images that suggest circles or compasses, which may also point to this. Isn’t there a golden spiral? Maybe the golden owl name is nod to using this sort of mathematical spiral.

    I think it’s a spiral that you would draw. I think that the golden spiral or the fib will produce a spiral with 4 corners if you draw it in full.

    I think that this clue is pointing to Dabo, 185km of Carignan, wich gives us the spiral with 4 centers, church St. Leon plus it looks like a ship seen from far away. 😉
