The lymeric also seems to describe "4 of 12" and 20-1=19 - April 19th?

[edit] HETFET Revealed

[edit] April 19

HETFET.org became active.

HETFET means: "Humans for the Ethical Treatment of Fairies, Elves, and Trolls"
The new site includes a number of sections and pages of content. But of primary import is the Secret Device (link).
Believed to have been forged by mystical alchemists and metallurgists during the time when Trolls freely walked the Earth, the object known only as THE SECRET DEVICE, has thrilled and perplexed those few that have taken gaze upon it.
The device is very 'steampunk' in appearance, containing 3 rings that can be rotated, with numbers from 0 through 99 adoring their perimeter. At certain positions lights glow for each ring. There are also 10 'slots' at the foot of the device.

Lock #1 of the device is unlocked.

Positioning the rings at (or by top-left-right = ) unlocks the device.
Unlocking the device display a new poem with hilighted letters, which spell: "Lexilloyd.comhetfet.org"
This then leads to Lexilloyd.com, the personal blog of Lexi Lloyd
Returning to the device, the first slot in the footer is now 'lit'.

Lexi's site contains numerous entries dating back to January, and provides a link to her youtube profile (link)

The latest entry indicates she's going to start vlogging. Her youtube profile contains videos posted April 16 (My first VLOG) and April 17 (Re: Fairies).

Lexi posts a new VLOG which appears later in a blog entry: "soooo sick of prank callers!"

Lexi quotes a riddle she likes, for us to solve for fun.
Start by picking a small number. Do you have it?
Now, double the number... add 8 to the result... divide the result by 2... subtract the original number
And now we're going to convert that result into a letter - so 1 would be A, 2 would be B, 3 would C, ekcetra[sic].
So with that letter, name a country that begins with it.
Now think of an animal whose name starts with the second letter of that country.
Think of a colour of that animal. You got it?

PANATROG.org pass phrase is discovered

She followed instructions and retrieved her dad's ring, a unique and special ring. Next, she had to look in a toolbox in her garage. She knew there was no toolbox there, but looked anyway, and sure enough there was one there. Inside were instructions. She called her mom to ask about them, who then admitted that her dad's alive. Lexi was told to stay put until her mom gets back within a week, but out of excitement, she decides to go anyway.
