The Ralis Conundrum
Please give your thoughts on a proposal I had:
School has started up again, and that means it's time to get your brain back in shape!
Every Wednesday, at some varying point of the day, I'll be posting some sort of weekly challenge for you to figure out. Each week brings a new puzzle: it may be a math problem, a riddle or something else entirely. Whatever it may be, you'll have to use a little (or a lot of) brain power to figure it out.
These puzzles may require knowledge outside of Ragnarok! Anyone is capable of finding the answer, but I cannot guarantee you will always know what to do if you have little to no understanding of Ragnarok, computers, math, science, etc.
The competition is open to both servers! Chaos Renewal and Classic Loki players may both enter their answers. It may help you to know, then, that the answer to each challenge will be something that can be found by players of both servers.
Correct answers may win a prize at the end of the week. However, only a certain number of prizes can be given out and all correct answers are entered into the prize pool. Please do not try and use multiple accounts to get better odds! We check account connections. If you're caught doing this, you will be automatically disqualified from present and future competitions... Including OTHER events on the forums as well.
Please keep in mind that the theme for each week is not always a factor in figuring out the puzzle. This does not mean that it will never have an impact, but rather that you should not assume that you must travel to a location or that the answer must fit the theme given in that week's conundrum.
Please do not post or PM your answers. Use the link below the challenge to submit answers!
You may freely adjust your entry until each week's deadline.
I don't consider search engines cheating. You will never find the answer directly, but always use your resources!
Please do not ask questions related to this week's challenge on the forums. Questions regarding the competition as a whole are fine, but we want to avoid any hints or answers being posted directly on the forums!
This Week's Challenge
Week 8: Scavenger Hunt [ 10/8 - 10/14 ]
Flagpost Bench Tree
Vendor Carts & Stands Guard Station Lamppost
The Committee for the Rehabilitation and Advancement of Prontera (C.R.A.P. for short) has determined that the city of Prontera is not receiving enough tourism lately. In an effort to draw visitors to the city and quite literally force them to walk every square inch of the castle's town, they've created a scavenger hunt using various things you can find around the city.
Multiply the number of Flagposts by the number of Benches.
Subtract the number of Trees.
Multiply by the number of Vendor Carts & Stands.
Divide by the number of Guard Stations.
Add the number of Lampposts.
Once you know how many of each item are located on the entire Prontera map, solve the math problem above and submit the answer to (possibly) win a faaaaaaaaaaabulous prize*!
*This week's prize partially sponsored by C.R.A.P.
This week's prize:
Party Hard Pack
The competition ends Tuesday, October 14th at 11:59 PM PST! Good luck!
