Queen Stella is once again in search of the crafted coins known as "Stellazzio" - A quest that may or may not ring familiar from a certain Final Fantasy game.
This new set of Stellazzio Coins have been spread out across all of FFF, and Queen Stella once again seeks our help to find them all! Below you will find a set of clues indicating each location for all 12 Stellazzio Coins, including a rumored 13th coin!





The Coins
Who hid all these coins? We're not really certain who dropped off the clues, but we hope you'll be able to piece together these puzzles and dig up their locations!
Because some of these are in hard to reach places Queen Stella will be pleased if you simply document your finds and PM them to mysel-er-I mean, her, using the form below.
It's okay if you only find some of them, you'll still be rewarded depending on how many you find, rather than finding every single one!
Because rewards are contest related we encourage you to not disclose locations of the Stellazzio coins you find to the public, but at the same time encourage you to discuss the puzzles with others should you be struggling with deciphering anything below.
Remember, some of these coins are very easy to find, while others may be less so.
Not every coin will be visible to the naked eye, and not every coin will be in the first post of a thread!


The Reward
Queen Stella can't hand out any more than what we usually hand out here on Birthweek, so below is an idea of the rewards you can reap should you find some, most, or all of the Stellazzio Coins!

1-5 answers correct = 2 EXP
6-10 answers correct = 3 EXP
10-13 answers correct = 5 EXP



The Hints
Please use the following hints to locate each of the 12 (and perhaps 13!) Stellazzio Zodiac Coins!
♈︎
Three houses stand, their crest set ablaze.

♉︎
5EE. "Dryd'c zicd mega oui."

♊︎
hooobcc renbidge donugr

♋︎
It will take some strong arms to flip to the tuh² page of an Atlas.

♌︎
🦁 📷

♍︎
Terrible small dreams in which you are blind.

♎︎
Is this a place to Garden Chocobos?

♏︎
Wishing to further discuss a conceptual topic of which I had mused about in my prior brooding thoughts, amidst the darkening hours of the Earth’s orbital period, it occurred upon my thoughtfulness of mind to further take my discussion points and insert them rhythmically, albeit hastefully and accurately, through my typing mechanical mechanism, which allows me to further converse with those that are of similar mind in hopes of further engaging in like-minded conversing of the same subject with varying viewpoints over the same concept falling under the title of such a thread of posted replies within a chronological order of oldest to newest postings.

♐︎
An organization.

♑︎
.Ɉʜϱin Ɉɒ ɘbɒm ƨɒw ɘƨimoɿԳ ɘʜT

♒︎
Look what the monkey dragged in.

Skip over the ones you didn't find!
The post number indicates which post the coin is hidden in, which can be found to the top right of each post!
These coins are rumored to disappear sometime by
June 30th, so get your PMs to Stella or myself before then!

I have a few, but I must admit you've foxed me with a lot of them!

I'll try and figure out the others once I've finished my entries for other contests, etc.

New intel suggests that the Stellazzio Coins might actually disappear later than suggested, so the deadline has been pushed back to June 30th. Stella looks forward to your submissions!

One of the hints was recently made inaccurate since a passage of time occurred.

The location of the coin still remains, but the hint:
♋
It will take some strong arms to flip to the rary² page of an Atlas.


has now been changed to:
♋
It will take some strong arms to flip to the tuh² page of an Atlas.

The ghost of the coins will remain in their locations until July 5th, after which they'll be completely removed from their posts.
After July 5th the links will remain in this thread but there will be no more coins in those locations, or any indication that they were there to begin with!

After scouring the forums for exactly 1356421564 hours!

Well done, Tia!

I couldn’t work out the tuh² thing but I did guess that it had something to do with Tia based on the Atlas references. I did think it might be Al Bhed but it came up with nonsense. I didn't realise I’d need to translate it twice as that’s not usually how translations work, but I guess that's what the '²' was for!

This was a great event!

Some genuinely challenging clues, and I love all the special gifs, etc. Beelzebulbble with a zodiac coin is an improvement on the original imo. And I love the crying variant of :thehead: .
