Welcome to the Ralis Conundrum!

 

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.

 

Correct answers that are not chosen for the weekly prize will gain points depending on how many people get the correct answer! When you've saved up 20 points (points will be kept track in the 3rd post of each thread), you can PM me any time during the week to trade your points in for the current week's prize. You may only trade in points once a week for a single prize, so keep that in mind if you're trying to save up for a "better" prize. Winners of the weekly prize may PM me by the end of the week to opt out of the weekly prize, instead receiving the amount of points awarded as a participation prize for that week, up to a maximum of 20.

 

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.

 

Helpful links:

iRO Wiki Renewal Database

iRO Wiki Classic Database

I don't consider search engines cheating. You will never find the answer directly, but always use your resources!

 

Please be cautious when asking questions about the puzzle of the week on the forums as they could end up being hints for others. You are always welcome to PM me with any questions you may have.

Week 17: That's a Wrap! [ 12/10 - 12/16 ]

 

4_m_oilman.png

 

Recently, the "motion picture" has become extremely popular in Rune-Midgarts. However, Michael Sandymoss, the famous director behind many of the recent hits coming out in Ragnarok, is in a bit of a pickle. His star actor recently quit over a disagreement with breaks (Sandymoss wanted to get rid of the actors' breaks altogether), and he's in need of a new leading man.

 

One of his stagehands passed him a note with the following written on it, saying that it would reveal the name of a legendary individual who could star in Sandymoss' films. He can't decipher it, though, and needs your help!

 

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.......EEE

Week 16: Back to Basics [ 12/3 - 12/9 ]

 

Male_Novice_(Ragnarok_Online).png

 

Nothing fancy this week. I just want to see how well you've been paying attention.

 

SISUAATMITTGYBBIS EWASVPOTDIBPSSOWCFYTFO EWBANPIMBAMPAROSEE WIMBYHTUALOALOB

 

What are the next five letters in the above sequence?

 

Last week's prize:

MCA_zps4dbcd43e.png
Old Card Album x20 (Renewal)

Ancient Card Album x10 (Classic)

 

 

PoringDivider.png

 

SmokieIdea_zps9afed806.pngThe SolutionSmokieConfused_zps942a489a.png

 

The answer is PTFIO.

 

Once again, the clue to the answer was in the title: Back to Basics refers to the very first Conundrum, which can be found here.

 

Now, what should you be paying attention to? How about the opening blurb, in which I explain rules and all that fun stuff! Each letter in the string corresponds to the first letter of a word from the original post:

 

School is starting 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.

 

The string ends on the word "brain", so the next five letters will continue off of "power to figure it out", making the correct answer PTFIO.

 

There were 38 correct answers this week, and the five winners are:

bunnywunny, Clauchy, holycatz312, Hakkun and neko1231!

Congratulations!

(Hakkun & bunnywunny, whatever sacrifices you're making to RNGesus, keep them up, they appear to be working.)

 

Everyone else that answered correctly but did not get selected for the weekly prize have earned 3 points this week!

 

Your prize will (eventually) be mailed to or in the inventory of the character you listed on the answer page. If you would like to opt to not receive this week's prize and instead receive points equal to the participation prize, please PM me before the end of the week.

 

Please note: the two-week guarantee thing wasn't working too well as Oda has a lot of other responsibilities that come before getting prizes out. I will try to post in the current week's thread what prizes have been given out, but please be aware that you will get your prizes eventually, it just might take a few weeks. If I've posted that prizes for the week you won have been given out and you don't have yours, then THAT would be the time to PM Oda or I. Sorry about the inconvenience!

Just a quick question. All I need are those resources you linked to potentially help solve this problem right? I mean, I'd like to stay in the realm where it's somehow related to RO or on this forums vs having to find some decide to put that sequence of E's in some gif

Those are things that might help you, but you don't necessarily always need.

 

The problems can pertain to anything, really... The theme / answer will just always have something to do with Ragnarok.
