Rot_Gut became available for the First Created and Posted Lunar Guide as soon as Lunar Festival hit the news.
On February 16th 2007 Shenkuu Lunar Festival gave us a new daily. The Lunar Temple.
The top portion of the guide is basically a walkthrough of what you see when going to the Temple.
The rest of the guide is various different ways to work out your answer ;o)
Finally TNT has released a new item for the Temple to hand out.
February 3rd 2011, in honor of Shenkuu Lunar Festival
WELCOME TO THE LUNAR TEMPLE PAGE
Lunar Temple click here
You have come to visit the Shenkuu Lunar Temple where a wise old Gnorbu lives.
He maintains the official lunar calendar for Shenkuu.
The wise Gnorbu says: "I carefully observe the movement of the globes and track them here on my chart.
Do you think you have what it takes to accurately track the movement of Kreludor?
I propose a challenge to test your skills.
After clicking the link
Link to Lunar Puzzle click here
you are then taken to the puzzle page.
We all have a different map image
so you will have your Neopia and Kreludor placed in a complete different position on your charts.
The wise Gnorbu says: "I have chosen a random position for Neopia and Kreludor on my chart above.
Based on these positions, which phase of Kreludor would most likely be seen from Neopia?
Choose your answer from the diagrams below.
Here it should be noted that by clicking on the moon in your chart,
you can see the orbital rotation to hopefully help in picking the right answer.
Here we are now supposed to pick a moon phase
Our moon phase choices that the Gnorbu has given us would be numbered
from 1 *first moon first row, New Moon* to 9 *first moon second row, Full Moon*
so the last line before 1 again would be number 16
To me, your picture looks much like a clock.
The idea is to select the 'time' closest to your own image?
Each number relates to one of the positions shown in the chart, 2 rows of 8 phases = 16.
That is why you have 16 positions on the 'clock'. Is this correct?
Correct Indeed :o)
Thank You Bailey for your letters to further explain the degree differences and for the numbered moon phases chart to the right :o)
Big Thank You to Kreative for helping clean up the images, you rock guild sister :o)
This next section is dedicated to those that would rather use the "View Source Method"
We all were having an issue with our Kreludor numbers when they were 349 and higher being moon 8 instead of 9
This has been fixed by TNT.
Myself as well as another Lunar Temple Guide owner have both been notified by staff clarifying the problem is now fixed.
I also received word from a friend that it is fixed.

Thanks to everyone for enjoying the guide and sending letters.
I created the guide first to be simple then to be understandable.
I thought "Hey, what a fun and needed guide that would be".
So I created it that very day as soon as the news released it.
I didn't realize how much the guide was needed until all the letters started flowing in. Thank You :o)
Kreative, Akashic, Bailey, neo__rainbow Thank You for the advice and your personal info for the guide.
My Lunar Temple Link for you all to use
I, Reign, am glad you found this page helpful as that is what I created it for
