aack, i feel very stuck on this one. fred leaves something changed which leaves a message for bill, but bill never comes to that place. does the thing fred changes somehow affect things elsewhere in the world?

will the message be heard? is it sign language of some type? so it's not really "voice" but the same idea?

I think I wasn't thinking completely in my earlier responses, so to clear things up, let me point this out: There are two events going on, one before and one after. In the one before, Bill get's a voice message... (sorry about not thinking of this) and the second part involves a yopish voice message.... sorry about that... :P

Oops... sorry again... Fred's clever action spans the time between after the first event up to the end of the second...

does the first event let fred know he needs to "escape" from bill? is bill's voice message from fred? from someone who knows fred? does fred know about bill's voice message? is there a third relevant party?

does the first event let fred know he needs to "escape" from bill? No, not at all is bill's voice message from fred? Yes from someone who knows fred? does fred know about bill's voice message? is there a third relevant party? Only very tangently, so much so as to be practically irrelevant

does something happen before the voice message that lets fred know he needs to escape? after the voice message? between the first and second events? is the content of the voice message relevant? does it set up the "clever" thing? does it lead bill to expect something?

No to both... btw, 'escape' may be slightly misleading... is the content of the voice message relevant? Somewhat does it set up the "clever" thing? Yesish does it lead bill to expect something? Noish

It would seem that everyone has lost interest in this puzzle. So....


That was clever of him.

*SPOILER*
This puzzle is set in the game of Warcraft, by Blizzard Entertainment. One unit you can get is called the Demon Hunter (Bill); he is an elf. As with all blizzard games, if you click on the Demon Hunter enough, he will begin to say funny things. The one quote goes like this:

"Darkness (Fred) called. But I was on the phone, so I didn't answer. I tried to star sixty nine Darkness, but his machine picked up. I yelled, 'Pick up the phone, Darkness!' But he still didn't answer. Darkness must have been screening his calls."

Screening his calls when expecting a call from the Demon Hunter was rather clever of Darkness.
