Golden Nessy E.G.G.

This hint led to the discover the golden Nessy E.G.G. special item, dropped by the gold faker ghost in [[Treasure trove|the Treasure trove, the location at the end of the trapdoor in Dormont Cemetery (region 3, Strathclyde).

Red herring

On Thursday 15 February 2018, the Chairman reported a clue to something:
