  1. Hey everyone! I noticed that there's a buttload of new memes and no place to put them. Post them here for people to see (and so we can stop clogging up the puzzle thread). Enjoy! Edit: Also, the memes don't have to be Maxwell themed. All characters are welcome. This is merely a sequel of a previous meme thread.
  2. With the release of the free A New Reign expansion, comes more puzzles and mysteries from Klei. The Fuelweaver's 3rd form, fightable in the Atrium, has a string of quote that said "Metheus..." The user @ImDaMisterL, with his ingenious and brilliant mind, just goofed up the webpage and inputted that there as a what if. What an Einstein. Click here to be redirected to the puzzle's page! So, what exactly lead the community to think something was going on? Klei posted the release trailer of the A New Reign free expansion: And it had some moments where hidden images could be seen i one paused at the right time before/after/in the middle of transitions. The first one: The second one: The First Day When entering the website, you'd be face to face with this: Ater that, the user @Mobbstar used pro hacking skills to access the available assets page and found 4 very interesting images: Those images appeared to depict the murals that told us a bit of the ancients' story in-game, but much more detailed now, of course. People realized though, that the 2nd mural was missing. Some time after, Klei restricted the assets page more than before, and if you tried getting those images now, they'd be like this: The Metheus page updated again that day, adding bowls of what seems to be paint and brushes: The Second Day The page updated once again: @CarlZalph Made a compilation of the symbols and the apparent alphabet of the ancients: And @Zeklo made a post with each individual symbol, found here: @Cherryzion made a compilation of the symbols we've had in older puzzles, their names and meanings: The page updated 3 more times that day: @Maslak Made a truly great discovery as well: The Third Day In this day, the page updated thrice! According to @Canal_WP, the page will update 2 more times today, at 2:55 and 10:55 PM, as it appears to update every 8 hours. EDIT: That turned out to be wrong The Fourth Day So far, the page has only updated once today: Thank you so very much, @Aeschwutz, for helping me with all the images I haven't (and even the ones I have) collected. This probably would've taken much more time if it wasn't for your awesome help! Huge Update (And link to guide!) This topic would be updated as the puzzle progressed, but I'm a bit busy nowadays, so I'll take longer to update it properly.
  3. Me and my partner have been having trouble on the 2nd puzzle. We would like to have a person that can help guide us.
  4. Looking for someone to do Metheus with. Please have Discord, doing it without it is very hectic, slow, and difficult. Add me at Sci3nce#7668 If you don't know what that is, here: Thank you!
  5. HERE IS MY EXPLANATION. I will try to make this as clear as I possibly can. Before you even attempt this puzzle, you must first complete the Cyclum puzzle. The Cyclum puzzle was the last puzzle Klei gave us, and it introduced A New Reign. Complete it to get a tragic torch, which will light up the first part of this new puzzle. The link to the puzzle is here: Not sure if it's expired or not, but the steps to solve it are here: FOR THE NEW PUZZLE, the first step is to enter the Metheus page. There, you will find that the left side is lit up by a torch. There is also a console on the left. When you click the console, it will take you to a dashboard. There will be characters on the bottom, as well as a black and gold string of symbols on top. To progress with the puzzle, you need to exchange codes. Specifically, you need to find a buddy and either input their gold or black code, not both. They will input the opposite code of yours (black or gold). The center will turn gold when you input theirs. When they input yours, the gaps will turn purple. (I input my partner's gold symbols and they input my black.) After that, you can move on to the second part. But make sure you keep in touch with your buddy, because you'll need them for the second part. By now, the other half of the first screen should be lit by a second torch. There is a second console. When you click on the console, you'll either have tile squares and a string of black symbols at the top, or vice versa. There are 32 symbols and 13 tiles. One partner will get the symbols and the other will get the tiles. I happened to get the tiles, so my screen looked like this: Now comes the hard part. You need to put in the code that your partner has, as well as give them the code that you received on yours. As far as I can tell, it's random, and the symbols never correspond to the same tiles twice. Usually, when you swap codes, at least one dot will light up. That means that one of the tiles is in the correct placement and it's the correct tile, meaning it corresponds with your partners symbol. For example, let's say that I have a tile with a dash at the top. My partner has a symbol that looks like a funky F. We happened to find, through trial and error (removing the tiles and submitting until something turned off), that the F symbol and the tile make one of the dots light up when they're in a certain slot. When you have a match, it could be in any of the slots. (This is us with two symbols and tiles correct. I think in this case, it was the first and the sixth. I can't remember what symbols they had on their end. The main code started us off, and then we had to find the right input by trial and error. The best we got was three before it refreshed.) Here's the worst part: you only have a certain amount of submissions to get it right before it refreshes, and you have to start over again. That's at least what I've been able to gather from our experiments. Here's a better explanation for how to solve the second part: Apparently, it's just a matter of switching the symbols and tiles that you already have in unison and submitting the answer in a cohesive fashion. When you get all six dots, the button will glow gold. EDIT: I finally finished the puzzle for myself, so here's what you need to do. First, follow the binary method. What I mean by this is to have the tile person enter in all of the first tile in their partner's code. That should get you at least one dot. Then one of you can check to see which tile/symbol is in the correct placement by replacing them with a filler not in your code and pressing submit. Be sure to refresh the page often to make sure that the website is recording your inputs. Using this method, you should be able to narrow it down. Here's us trying to find the second symbol/tile placement. I put in the second part of their code into all of my slots. It sounds more complicated than it is. Honestly, others have explained it better than I have. Whew. Sorry, that was a lot, but it needed to be clarified. DO NOT POST FOR BUDDIES HERE. To find a buddy, go to this thread:
  6. First of all, in the second part of the puzzle, synergy's really important with your partner, this's why I'd advise for you & your partner to decide who'll be the leader. The leader'll be the one controlling the situation, guiding what the other teammate should do. I recommend the leader to be the one using the black code during the first part of the puzzle, while the teammate uses the yellow one. After entering their codes they'll each see panels that looks like these: At the top of each panel there'll be some symbols, i'll call them a "code", the leader and his teammate should send a print to each other with the code in the top of their panels, these are the symbol the other person - be it the leader of the teammate - will be using during the resolution of the puzzle. Example: So, here's how the puzzle works... Basically, you need to match 3 things correctly for the dots to light up, these things would be the following: The leader symbol, the teammates symbol and the right slot. So, this means that you'd need to match two specific symbols in a specific slot for one dot to light up. Example: This symbol I circled in the image above(the symbol the person with the golden code uses) will only fit with this symbol: in the first slot (space/square) for it to light one of the dots up, but that was in my case, you and your partner will have a different combination. So, now that you know what you're supposed to do how should you do it then? Well, there's a simple technique @alainmcd posted in one of his treads & this's how to do it: The leader should tell his teammate to fill all their slots with the first symbol in his code (symbol 1 in the next picture) and then tell them (the leader's teammate) to press their button. Lets say this is the code with the symbols the leader sent to his teammate:After the leader's partner fill his slots with his first symbol, it should look like this: After filling, remember to press the button!After that, the leader should put the first symbol in his code in one of the slots and fill the rest with symbols that aren't in his code.Lets say these are the symbols the leader's teammate sent to the leader:After the leader has put his first symbol in one of the slots and filled the rest with symbols he isn't supposed to use/that aren't is his code, it should look like this:Note: You can see that the symbol that looks like a P with tree legs was in the code in the picture above this one, but the one that look like a R wasn'tthen, the leader should press his button to check.If no dots light up, the leader should put his symbol in the second slot, like this: And he should press his button again. If no dots light up again, the leader should put the symbol in the third slot and press his button again... The leader should keeping repeating it until one of the dots light up or until he has been through every slot with that symbol. If no dot lit up after the leader has been through every slot with his first symbol, he should change to his second symbol and repeat the same process again. If one dot light up, you've got a right combination of leader's symbol + teammate's symbol + the correct slot so don't move/change it anymore, keep it like that. If that happened, the leader should pay attention to which slot got the match, & not move/change this slot anymore, what he should do now is take out all the wrong symbols( the ones the leader does not have in his code) & tell his partner which slot's the one where there's the right match & then his teammate should take out the symbol in every other slot, but not the one where there's the correct/right match. Example: In this picture you can see that the third slot has a right match, so the partner and the leader should not change it anymore, instead they should take out all the symbols from all other slots. Then, it should look like this: After getting your first correct match & taking the rest of the symbols out, the leader should tell to the teammate to fill the rest of their empty slots with their second symbol, and then he should tell to his partner to press their button. It should look something like this: Now the leader should fill one slot with his second symbol: & the rest with symbols that he isn't supposed to use: Now the leader should press the button to check. If the second dot didn't light up, the leader should put his second symbol in the next slot & press the button again. The leader and the partner should keep doing these processes until the six dots light up- -which then you should follow this guide for solving part 3 of the puzzle. Also, there's one last thing I should say's: the Metheus puzzle will probably reset while you're trying to do it, that happens because there's a limited amount of tries you get before the second part of the puzzle resets, but you'll get them right with enough teamwork, eventually. So, don't give up hope & good luck friends !!
  7. Can't you get the Tragic Torch if you didn't have it earlier? I've tried helping two people now, and they both get stuck at the campfire part, where you have to make a skewer. Like, click the trap, the berry bushes, etc. It just doesn't work. We've tried clearing browser cache, refreshing, changing web browsers (Firefox and Chrome) and still get nothing. help
  8. I was just doing the puzzle with someone. We had got to the second tablet and once we both had one of the 6 tiny buttons light up, they told me to refresh. Refreshing for them went fine, but for me, it gave me this: So, now what am I supposed to do? Is this part of the puzzle? Klei, could we have a fix for this, like real quick?

  10. Intro: So, you are new on the forums or haven't really been keeping track of all the puzzles so far that have given us lore for William Carter, or maybe you just want to look through all the discovered lore, then this is the place to be! I will be covering all the puzzles and their sollutions that are related to this mysterious magician, which looks a lot like... Maxwell (dun dun duuun). When a new trailer and puzzle emerge from the Kleilands, this thread will be updated accordingly. At the end of William's story so far there will be links to the resp. puzzle threads so you can have a gander at those aswell. Now let us begin with the story! Some bits are interpreted/added by me to make it a more fluent story. Hope this will help people who want to know William Carter's story and want to look back at the lore discovered from the puzzles All aboard! William Carter, a very dapper Englishman(last residence in London) and stage performer, aboards a ship called Quest and travels from Liverpool to the United States. The ship departs at the 26th of July in the year 1901. His inspection card shows some interesting things. A photo of William accompanies the document, however someone has made scratches through his face. And it is quite worrysome if someone carves your face on a photo with you in it! Someone or something doesn't seem to like William. Also worth noting is that William Carter looks rather similar to that other dapper fellow, Maxwell.. Abracadabra! Time passes and not all is known about what William is doing in America. That is untill he performs as a magician in the Bowery Hall, New York, and according to the poster is "performing feats of the mysterious for your entertainment and edification". Looking at the poster, William looks a bit uneasy when he pulls a rabbit out of his hat, maybe indicating he isn't entirely sure what he is doing? If you wanna look good on your poster you can better look all dashing and confident, no? And his face has been scratched upon again. The person or being that doesn't like him is apparently following William wherever he goes.. Maybe he knows something that he shouldn't know. The success of his magic show is unknown, but the poster looks kinda worn out and there's other advertisements aswell. Hard times... Later on, William is having a hard time in America. It seems he is in financial trouble or just doesn't feel like paying for the magic items he has purchased/he forgot about it entirely. He has gotten two enveloppes by mail, the first one containing a threat letter and a payment ticket. William bought some marked cards, a gimmicked tophat and two docile rabbits from George T. Witherstone, a seller of dramatic props and magical apparel. The payment of $7.10 is overdue, and someone is not happy about that. An ultimatum is set: If William doesn't pay the money this week, he will be in trouble. This is written in the letter: "William! You are late again! Where is the muny? Do you think Mr. Witherstone is runnin a charatee? You better pay up this week or there will be trouble! I will find you!" Judging from the writing skills of the one that send the threat letter, it could be a very muscular yet dim-witted individual. Wolfgang doesn't seem to have poor grammar skills, he just talks relatively simple which is probably due to his non-English origin. It is unlikely he wrote the letter. Then there's also a letter from Jack, who is William's brother. Jack Carter seems to live in California, judging by the postcard that is included with the letter. This is what he writes to William: "William, you've finally come to America! How exciting! Has your show taken New York by storm yet? I fear we may have just missed each other - the city was too much for me, so I've gone west. It really is amazing out here - maybe you could visit sometime? Have you corresponded with mother lately? The post is dreadfully inconsistent out here. I can't believe she hasn't met the the twins yet! Warmest regards, - Jack" Apparently William has a brother named Jack, more info about him is not known. Jack has gone west since the city was too much for him, and is suggesting William should pay a visit. Jack mentions their mother and how she hasn't met the twins yet. The twins he speaks about are likely to be Wendy and Abigail, the time period further confirms that theory. William is gonna decide to go west to visit Jack, by train.... Dark Enlightenment William then took the train to San Fransisco on the 15th of August 1904, at which point he has been 3 years or so in America ever since the ship departed from Britain at the 26th of July 1901. However the train is never going to make it...Some paperwork is all there is left in the sand. One of which is a poster for the Abernethy & Parker CIRCUS, which will come to various towns. There is also a strongman performing in the circus, he can be seen balancing with one hand on an elephant that in turn is balancing on a ball. There are also flamingos on the elephant's back and some monkeys wearing a fez can be seen aswell. The strongman should be none other than Wolfgang. The person on the poster bears a resemblance to Wolfgang, only he doesn't have his moustache and looks more like the wimpier stages of him. The clothing is similar though. Regardless there can be no confirmation nor denial the person on balancing on the elephant is him. Wolfgang however IS the main attraction of the circus. When looking at the train ticket, it is clear that William traveled in the passenger train and not the circus train. He has no affiliation with the circus either. There's also a page that has been torn out of a book. It shows the sanity obelisk with strange symbols and writing next to it, which will have to be decoded first. It is worth noting that, despite not being the same symbols, the wooden thing has very similar symbols on it, which could indicate the sanity obelisk and wooden thing are made with the same knowledge... William is discovering things he probably shouldn't have discovered. To the right of the poster is a letter from William to Jack Carter, who seems to live in Corona, California. This is what he wrote to his brother: "Jack, the strangest thing has happened! Please discount all reports of my demise, should they reach you. I am very much alive, despite my recent mis- adventures. I have discovered something, a book of sorts. I have yet to decode it fully, but what little I have de- ciphered has opened my mind to terrifying new possibilities. I shan't say more through post - I fear it may attract unwanted att- ention. All will be explained when we meet. I shall continue west forthwith! - William" William has discovered a book which contains knowledge of something mysterious, yet terrifying. It must be big since he doesn't even want to talk about it through post, fearing it may attract unwanted attention. William is going to continue west, even though the train he was has crashed and he is presumed dead, as written in the newspaper called the Daily Speaker on the left. The article itself: "A passenger train struck a circus wagon that had broken down along the tracks at the Old Will crossing. Dozens of passengers were injured, and at least one man is missing. The missing man has yet to be identified, but fellow passengers described him as a tall, nervous fellow with an English accent. A search party was convened but quickly abandoned when it became apparent that a cage full of potentially dangerous trained monkeys had been vacated in the collision. Given the remoteness of the crash site, the scorching desert sun, and the escaped animals, the missing man has been presumed dead. This is the third time such incident at the crossing since the railway's construction in 1873, but the first to involve a circus wagon. Local businessman and railway investor Harold J. Rutherford assured this publication that all pertinent safety precautions had been taken, but no one could have foreseen the appearance of such a dangerous blockage on the tracks ---" The papers are being watched by an unknown shadow and a familar looking shadow to those who suffer from insanity. It is indeed the shadow watcher, and if you look at the source code of the page you can see it's silhouette...The faith of William and his means of going to his brother Jack are unknown at this time. He seems rather positive in his letter despite what has happened to him thus far... Ladies and gentlemen! William seems to have changed in appearance ever since him disappearing from the train crash. He now looks like the dapper man we all love or hate, Maxwell. He even has changed his stage performing name to "Maxwell the Great" as seen on his new poster. William( his real name as Maxwell is his mere stage performing name for the time being) looks nowhere close to what he looked like when he first started performing as a magician. His insecure look on his face has been replaced with a wide grin, and along with the magical explosion behind him this new poster looks truely spectacular. Who wouldn't want to visit a magic show like that! However William's new poster isn't the only thing worth noting. To the left of the poster is a page which looks like it came out of a journal of some sorth. Some sort of ritual is described by William. The attention is immediatly drawn to the sketch on it, of a being the more insane will recognize immediatly. It is the Terror Beak. Apparently William has seen it, and he doesn't seem anywhere insane. The shadow creatures are no hallucinations, but they are creatures from another dimension. They are drawn to the insane, and to William Carter's ritual apparently. This is what is written on the page: "A terrible form took shape in the air above the ritual last night. It was large and indistince, but it's countenance was infused with a sort of alien malevolence that chilled me to my very core. My fear was so great that I almost faltered in my incantations. It made no hostile motions, however and after having hung in the aether for a time, it shivered out of existence. What was it? Was it observing me? Is it the guardian of some deeper secret to which I am drawing closer? In any event, I am not keen to meet it's like again." What the ritual was and what incantations William used in said ritual are a mystery, and aren't described anywhere. It could be anything, but whatever it was it caught the attention of Them. To the right of the poster is a page torn out of a book. Judging by the colour of the page and the strange symbols, it is the same book William has discovered around the time of the train crash. On the page there's the Livegiving Amulet and the Telelocator Staff. If William already knows how to make these or merely is aware that they can be made, is not yet known. He may still be busy with decoding the book... Then again he is performing a ritual of some sorth... The last document to the right of the poster is an advertisement. William Carter is looking for a female assistant to perform in his stage show. The magic show seems to be a success, as William performs as Maxwell the Great twice a day, seven days a week! Such a contrast with his first magic act. The female assistant will start performing in William's stage show on the 6th of June, 1905. This is almost 10 months later after William has survived the train crash. This is what the advertisement says: "Looking to hire a lady assistant for a magician's stage show. Previous experience unnecessary, but should have a curious demeanor and a keen interest in the mysteries of the universe. Must provide own costume." William Carter resides in the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, California. As it stands right now, it is unknown if William has contacted or spend time with his brother Jack Carter. It may surprise some, but William's assistant for his act will be none other than... Charlie The success of William knows no boundaries so it seems, he keeps on going with his magic show. He has even found an assistant to aid him with the act. Charlie is her name. She even appears alongside The Amazing Maxwell who "performs feats to astound and mystify", as seen on the latest magic act poster. Charlie can be seen holding open a book from where a shadow creature flies away from. Those of you aware with insanity may recognize it from the sanity obelisks. Maxwell holds his hands around the shadowy entity as if he conjured it himself, and has a big grin on his face. He still continues to look so damn confident on his posters! Alongside the poster is a letter from Charlie written to "Maxy": "Hey Maxy, We really knocked 'em deadLast night, didn't we? Ithough that old guy in thefront wasn't going to makeit. Those shadow things are soconvincing - they almost scareme, and I'm part of the act! We can work on the new finalewhen I get back from my sister'splace. I'm looking forward to it! ~ Charlie ♥" Her letter has some interesting information in it. For one, Charlie has a sister, which may or may not be Wickerbottom or perhaps Willow. The mentioning of the shadowy things further accompanies the fact William has decoded the book he found, and is ready to use it at it's full potential. It is still unknown where and how he found the book.Then there's this talk about a new finale for the magic act. Whatever it's gonna be, it is certain it will be one to never forget, both for Maxwell and Charlie.... The Final Act There is a dark room with a dim light. This looks like Maxwell's room. His dapper suit hangs on a hanger, and there is a stool and table present aswell. But.. If you look closely at the wall, table and ground.. All the previous documents are all present, from the numerous letters to the circus poster. It seems that all the previous documents were all together in one place. But there might be more information hidden for the naked eye. Dare you enlighten yourself to see the hidden messages? Praecantator A woman wearing dark red clothes can be seen knocking on a door. It should by now be known who she is. Charlie looks a bit on the edge, but does seem to know where she is heading for.. And then whilst being quiet, Charlie enters the room . The room is rather dark, as the only light that is present comes from the hallway at this point. Not much from the room can be seen, aside from a carpet and a clock. At this point it is stil unknown what Charlie is looking for and where she is. It is time to illuminate the room. Charlie puts a light on and now the room has lighted up. It seems that this is a room owned by Maxwell (and potentially Charlie aswell), as some pictures with both of them can be seen on the wall. The big portrait has both Maxwell and Charlie posing together, happily. The left one has a cheerful Charlie on it, whilst the right one has Maxwell taking a bow. There's a mirror on the left wall, and a chandelier hangs in the middle of the room. There's some strange black goo-like stuff on it's chain. There's also a fireplace with two candles in the left of the room. And that curious little animal skull looks a lot like a jackalope doesn't it? Charlie has a perplexed look on her face as she looks into the mirror. Seems she's looking for something in particular which she cannot find in her viccinity. Charlie is full of curiosity, and with that curiosity she has found a hidden room by pulling one of the candles on the fireplace down. That certain room is the same as the one that had those weird carvings on the wall and celing, along with Charlie's name. However it seems that the Maxwell in the painting is rather sad by that. The Maxwell in the painting seems to be trapped, and can only watch as shadow hands appear out of the ceiling whilst Charlie is reading a book in the secret room. They seem to be going for Charlie... Maxwell uses the power within him to lighten up the main room and banish the shadow hands. Whilst this is going on, Charlie seems to be completely unaware of this. She is now examining Maxwell's suit. At this point it seems she regrets that she entered the secret room, as she picked up the lantern and illuminates the walls and celing, seeing what Maxwell has written on them. Meanwhile outside of the secret room, Maxwell seems to be collapsing after he used his powers to enlighten himself and the room to banish Them. Charlie seems to be in panic, as she runs out of the room whilst losing her hat. She carries Maxwell's book aswell as his suit with her. Maxwell seems to have collapsed, since he cannot be seen in the painting anymore... Maxwell has appeared in the room, seems he is full of remorse. He must blame himself for all the bad things that have happened to him and Charlie ever since he has gotten the dark enlightment from the mysterious book. And by the look on his face it seems he is sad about what happened to Charlie. It is unknown to him if she escaped the shadow hands or not, as the moment he banished those he collapsed. It is unknown at this point where Charlie went, maybe we will know that soon..... ___... Maxwell is in his secret room, and seems to be very angry. Most likely blaming the disappearance of Charlie. He ripped off his face from the poster, and scratched through his face on the painting. But worst of all is, the entrance to the secret room is locked right now.

  11. So, from the latest puzzle thread, we discovered this website here: So, it seems that there is a second praecantor. Speculations welcome! Here's mine, and it's no more crazy than Wilson is/is not. Look at the URL. The Way? The way....what? Where? It is The Way Out? An escape? It appears that Wilson has a Mortar And Pestle here. I imagine he's mixing together the Rocks, Silk and Berries to make the Thing mentioned in the first part of the recipe.
  12. This thread is about theories and speculation about William's story. Keep all discussions here so that the puzzle threads are about actually solving the puzzles. Here's an excellent recap about the puzzles : Remember to keep it on topic. A couple off-topic posts are ok just don't make dozens of pages of unrelated crap.
  13. I told my peers online that I was inspired by certain aspects of Don't Starve. So, being the little wretch I am I decided to do a mural inspired by the shadowy things and the rather intriguing borders from the rather dark game and its back story. Mainly its antagonists back story, because no matter how much of a jerk he is now people (and i) can't seem to stop loving him. Here is mural one, there will be a total of three or four hopefully. Each will take a while, and most are pretty simple yet elaborate. I don't like to get fancy with colors on murals, since mistakes are quite hard to fix with the paint I'm using and the resources available. Guess the inspirations, and find the symbols. If you cannot guess nor find or even inquire, look under the spoiler. I also had a quote for this mural, My hands are painted, painted black with the love and admiration I have detailed onto that one brick wall. Something that will stay there for years, sprawled out for others to view and inquire about. I have laid it out for them in a language that is unreadable by all except me, unless explained otherwise. Though my hands are literally black, more or less stained. I constantly have black somewhere on them now whether it be under my nails or somewhere on my wrist. With how easy this mural might look, it took me about two and a half days to do because I kept going back and repainting the lines- to make them look as black as possible. Also, that wall was freaking huge.
  14. Hi guys. You all know there's a new trailer. There are some puzzles. I know it by this... Look at my post. There is bold, yeah? But i didn't use a bold to type this. And I didn't edited my post. I'm thinking of a Winter's Tale Puzzle. It's similar. http-~~-// I found a strange noise on 0.46. I can't find anything else. A new Cat and Mouse game started. PS Sry for my eng. (Hey, it's me, Snob. Sorry for the edit, and the quote repost spam, hope you don't mind!) IN A NUTSHELL
