My answer for last week was "heck"

I used the title "Chef King Orleans Vol. 1"

the only number in the list that made an actual word was 2 3 1 5

I got it by using what number each letter of the title was

h = 2

e = 3

c = 1

k = 5

 

So I had the right idea but I used the wrong title and it only involved letters of the title of the page given. I could have been right too =\ Next time that dang hermit should actually propose the question in the riddle :(

 

I love your answer LOL.

This should be given a prize!!

On top of that I thought it correlated with "oh, heck, come on in" lol

LOL That's the same answer I got too. My thought was that, hermit was crazy and that would be his favorite word.

 

HAHA..

I even went as far as to try "Genius Chef Orleans Takes on the World!" as the title because that appears to be the original title of the book, according to Ragnarok Wiki.

My answer is like this.

"The clue's in the title! Answer my question and I shall let you in"

 

So I took the number 7/12. Turns out within the list of numbers that contains '7' ,'1' and '2', only "4 1 7 2" database to it (i mean item, mob code), which is The Paper Card.

And then look for a question in the page itself to see if I can somehow confirm my answer, the only question I can find is "what does Kiel mean by the power of loneliness?"

 

http://ragnarok.wiki.../wiki/Kiel_Hyre

 

Turns out Kiel fall in love with a woman named Ellisia, who is in love with another guy. Kiel send her a letter to meet her one night trying to convince her to elope with him. Ellisia doesn't want to, they struggle and she fall into the river and drowned. All because he send her that letter, a piece of paper. If he didn't, Ellisia would have eloped with the other guy that same night.

 

So I thought my answer was reasonable.

If you end up with a "reasonable" answer I'd suggest to retry the problem with a different approach.

XD The conjectures are really interesting though.

 

For the most ridiculous answer participation prize, if it's implemented, maybe ask people to post the reasoning behind their wrong answers?

I think it's so much more interesting that way to see how others ended up at their wrong answers lol.

Well, then tell me what kind of answers can you get from the numbers "7/12" in the book title? "retry the problem with a different approach"? Like my previous post, "How would the hermit know the title of the conundrum?" is my question. Even if I did retry with a different approach, I still won't link the clue with the title of conundrum instead of book title.

 

So Saffire, what answer did you end up with?

For the previous conundrum I was stumped by the 1 7/12.

 

My thinking was that it didn't seem possible that the answer would only involve a small set of numbers, like what you and Kritical have come up with.

In puzzles usually all the clues are there for a reason, and the answer should have all the clues fit nicely in place.

So yeah, since I couldn't link everything up nicely to give one perfect answer that I was 100% sure on, i didn't get any answer XD

in case anyone missed it, 7/12 isn't part of the book title; rather it's telling you what page you're on in the book.

1. Prizes may be subject to change. I'm running out of ideas for prizes and trying to get creative... Things may not always work out since I've had minimal contact with the CMs lately regarding what can and can't be given out. That being said, please feel free to suggest prizes you'd like to see in the future.

 

Do you mean that prizes people have won in the past but haven't received are subject to change as well? It would be disappointing if the prize one's been waiting for weeks ends up being changed to something he/she doesn't want...

Ones from the past should be fine... If you're on Renewal. Sometimes the prizes are more difficult to do on Classic...

last week's chalenge I didn't get the hint at all...I just skiped it since it is a hint is not really necesary, so I just looked to all the numbers and find out the largest number was 15, so I counted the words in each line and it was around it, then I realiced that the first number was 1-4 and the text had 4 paragraphs so I got it, and since the question had total sence I just stoped thinking about trying to figure out the hint and wait for it this week lol xD (sorry for my bad english)

Sigh... Last week I thought the numbers had something to do with the paragraphs, sentences, etc..., but still didn't figure it out :(

 

DISCLAIMERS AND THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK:

 

1. Prizes may be subject to change. I'm running out of ideas for prizes and trying to get creative... Things may not always work out since I've had minimal contact with the CMs lately regarding what can and can't be given out. That being said, please feel free to suggest prizes you'd like to see in the future.

 

 

Good items would be the Pet Eggs, since not only are pets hard to tame, but tames are hard to come by.

 

Items that are in the Cash Shop - Not Good.

 

Old gear that hasn't been in boxes for ages - Good

 

Items that haven't been seen in many years is good since many of us haven't been playing that long. This includes quest items if they can be given out.

 

Prize Medals & KVM's would be good.

 

 

Edit: Mjo, other god items, & MVP Cards would be awesome :P

Misleading is good. I want you to think from all angles and try every possibility. :)

 

It's not only misleading it's confusing the hell out of me. I can't figure out the sequence to this one. It's got me stumped again...

 

Oh well at least it's only a Rideword Hat & not an Egg I want :P

 

 

Edit: Just wondering if the prizes are based on the puzzles difficulty or just random. For instance a few weeks ago the Battle Manuals.

Depends. Sometimes I try and theme the prizes after the puzzle. It's hard for me to judge the difficulty of something before I post it... I thought the wheel one would be difficult, but people proved me wrong. :P

The wheel one was simple to do, just alot of time needed to count tiles and find the answer.
