Wrath of the TEAPOT GOD: Grand Finale

For the past week, clockwork invaded GoodBlox and turned everything into rupturing chaos. He managed to sneak his Teapot Turret into the catalog and cause utter mayhem for us all by changing our web site, hijacking Jiquor‘s account, and bloxxing every GOODBLOXian he saw. However, his rampage is now over. Regen fought a difficult battle against clockwork in the Parade level where he ultimately prevailed in the fight. In the end, it was clear that this particular version of “clockwork” was indeed not Alex Quach himself, but rather, a corruption lost in our simplistic side of the Internet as a whole.

Months ago, we attempted to stop his reign of terror with a special Teapot Jiquor had made back in 2016 during his time at ROBLOX.

Rumors began to circulate amongst our community that clockwork was returning to GoodBlox. The question beared everyone: is it for good, or is it for evil? The answer should’ve been obvious all along. clockwork came back with horrible vengenace. Our first real clue to his return was the appearance of one famous item created by Alex Quach himself, the LOLCAT Bible.

Later, the Bible went up for sale, and clockwork’s place -Mount GOODBLOX- had been updated. The rumors ended up being true. Not only had he put the LOLCAT Bible on-sale, but he had occupied himself with the Teapot Turret. Yes, THAT particular infamous item that was used to cause destruction on many innocent blocky characters and well-built ROBLOX levels back in his regime of ROBLOX administration. He practically snuck it into the catalog.

clockwork indicated that people made fun of his teapot obsession, but he also shunned Jiquor for “stealing his pride”. He wondered what kind of vengeance he had against Jiquor compared to the rest of the community. All this time, it turns out he believed that there could only be one teapot fanatic. He sought to take every Teapot back, specifically from Jiquor.

Jiquor is just an ordinary guy who likes to collect Teapots, much like clockwork does. And yet, he still did not understand when Jiquor attempted to reason with him. When clockwork visited Mt. GOODBLOX to invade innocent climbers, rumors spread around indicating that he had left some sort of note hidden in the level.
A few hours later, SyncMaster found the element that many had spent hours upon hours of searching for. Our second clue was a gray Teapot that had been found behind a delicate wall. Upon touching the Teapot, this message would spill out:

“My turret has one weakness

(besides another turret, but what are the odds of that?)

Just don’t let a certain book enter my space.”

Jiquor even got word from KJF; clockwork had joined Mt. GOODBLOX and wreaked havoc on the mountain. He also left some javascript-code behind, which was indicating a server shutdown and a hint about The Nethack Man Pages, which is a rare book created by Telamon (John Shedletsky) himself back in 2008.

On the next day, a new blank white banner appeared on-site in the early hours of May 31st, 2020. Before Jiquor went to remove it, members of the community discovered a hidden message on the banner. This was actually the third clue! With this, he decided to leave the announcement up to see where that clue would take the community.

The mountain was also updated again. Telamon’s book was updated, too. KJF’s avatar was not looking too healthy at the time of writing. Apparently, clockwork had corrupted items available on our catalog, which included faces, Decals, and Pants. Decals are still being fixed.

*But that wasn’t the worst of all that happened. clockwork had done the unthinkable; this is what I could only describe as “the worst that’s yet to come” in the general chat rooms on our Discord server during my time of speculation. We had become some knock-off of Finobe. We suspected that Finobe had something to do with this. In the end, we were correct. Clockwork’s corruption was being delivered by their servers in hopes to destroy GoodBlox!*
*(Part of the A.R.G.)

On the next day, this turned into a different kind of war. On 9:02 PM,
June 2nd, 2020, clockwork hijacked Jiquor’s account.

Jiquor was working on another Teapot Turret behind the scenes. Clockwork discovered this, and in turn, he hijacked Jiquor’s account to stop his secret plans. With this Turret, I was planning to end this war entirely. He managed to find out my secret plans to rid of him forever.

He did what he wanted to do to me. He deleted my Teapots. He changed the announcements. He changed my profile. He posted weird messages on-site. He demoted every single staff member. He altered my levels. He bloxxed every GoodBloxian that he ever saw. He had also created various ominous assets that were published by my account. They’re extremely eerie.


Evident from Mt. GoodBlox, a particular book (The Nethack Man Pages) could stop him. Our only hope left to stop clockwork from his destructiveness was the book itself.

On the next day, it seems that someone had actually solved the puzzles that were hidden by Telamon on-site. One banner went like this:

There were also other various symbols posted onsite:

_- – This was the starting point. It would be found on an onsite announcement banner.
6 – This is the second symbol. It would be found on a forum post by Telamon that was pinned for a short while.
-5 – This is the third symbol. It would be found on an empty baseplate created by Telamon.
12 – The Nethack Man Pages’ had its description changed to include this excerpt: “>> 12 << 00 pages.” This is where the fourth symbol was.

Together, all the symbols made “_-6-512“. If you searched this up in the T-Shirts area, you found it, smart cookie! This was the fourth clue.

Users who friended or messaged NethackManPages received Telamon’s legendary accessory. Regen was the first person to solve this puzzle. The book is no longer obtainable, and it will never be for sale. Don’t bother asking for it.

Clockwork had done so many things to the GoodBlox foundation. During his rampage, he didn’t just change small things onsite, but he uploaded very creepy assets that shouldn’t have existed. Just today, it seems that he had changed GoodBlox back to normal. This was almost the case – however the banner, the logo, and many of the buttons changed a SECOND TIME. Some messages said things like this: CLOCKWORK is Free! How eerie was that?!

The user that solved the puzzles first was none other than regen, an ordinary GoodBlox user, just like you! They were deemed the chosen one to save us all from total catastrophe. Today was also Parade Day. While there, regen other users had completed a very strange obstacle course with moving Teapots, climbing structures, and even rolling spheres! This was the final clue.

While clockwork was busy paying attention to the parade so he could decide how to invade it, I got back into my account through a back-door. With this, I was able to revert my profile and the catalog back to normal after some maintenance, but for some odd reason, I was not able to remove these items in particular. Oh well, I guess we’ll just turn them into Jiquor’s special assets – which are the first two GoodBlox Administrator’s special items evar.

On the next day, the battle was on. Regen would go on to fight Clockwork during the second part of the Spring Block Party parade.

They fought for almost thirty minutes before clockwork perished as his Teapot Turret shattered. Regen is a true hero, so we’ve awarded him a very special item: The Legendary Ruby Rock of Pwnage!

With this, GoodBlox returned to normality with much rejoice. Clockwork’s wrath has now ended completely and those who completed the obstacle course (when it was broken and when it was opened) have received their items if they entered the correct code in a message sent to me. You got your 50 GOODBUX if you entered “Teapot Obstacle Prevailer” to me. Keep in mind that a shortened version like “Teapot Obby Prevailer” did not count. Sorry!

We hope to see more folks participating in cool events in the near future. We’ve got so much content planned for the summer, so if you’ve got a moment to stick around and check out what we’re doing, this summer is the right time to do that! Some special videos about the entire event will come out soon and will be available on our Youtube Channel for those to watch and enjoy. Special videos by Jiquor will be available as well – check out his YouTube channel.
Special shout-out to Dayren2 for their epic posts in regards to Clockwork’s Wrath. Read it here.
