Reverse 1999: How Many Years Has Vertin Been Walking in the Storm?

The Reverse 1999 “In the Storm” riddle, quizzes you on the following: “No one is spared from the scourge of time, yet some still dare to try. How many years has Vertin been walking in the ‘Storm’?”

To solve this riddle in Chapter 5, you can use context clues from previous chapters. The first thing to figure out is Vertin’s age. Although it’s never explicitly given, we can find it with some simple math. 

In Chapter 3, stage 6, or 3TH-06, it’s revealed that Vertin became the Timekeep at the age of 12. Then in 4TH-10, you learn that Vertin and other children were allowed out into the storm 4 years ago. With these two pieces of information, we can solve the riddle.

It’s suggested that Vertin and the main character, Sonetto, are the same age. Since Sonetto is 16, we’ll assume that Vertin is as well. If Vertin became the Timekeeper at the age of 12 and when they walked into the storm, that means that Vertin was walking in the storm for 4 years.
