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:

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
EE.......EEEEEEEEE.EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE..EEEEE..EEEE.EEEEE..EEEEE
EE...EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.EEEEEEE.EEEE.EEEE
EE.EEEEEE..E..EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEE.EEEEEEE.EEEE.EEEEEE.EEEEE..EEE..EEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.EEEEEEE.E
EEE.EEEEEE.EEEE..EEEEE..EEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.EEEEEEE.EEEE.EEEEEE.EEE
E.EEEEEEE.EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
E.EEEEEEE.EEEE.EEEEEE.EEEE.......
..EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEE.EEEEEEE.EEEE.EEEEEE.EEEE.EEEEEEE.EEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.EEEEEEE.EEEE.EE
EEEE.EEEE.EEEEEEE.EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEE..EEEEE..EEEE.EEEEE..EEEE.EEEEEEE.E
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.......EEEEE..
.....EEEEE.EEEEEEE.EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

 

Who is the famous individual?

 

Last week's prize:

SkullCap_zpse6b54ae1.png

Skull Cap [1]

SmokieIdea_zps9afed806.pngThe SolutionSmokieConfused_zps942a489a.png

 

The answer is Oda.

 

Clues were scattered all over the place for this one. First of all, the title of the puzzle: "That's a Wrap!" hinted at the fact that wordwrap would be useful. The bit about getting rid of the actors' breaks was also a clue: In order for the answer to become visible, all of the line breaks needed to be deleted. Finally, the fact that it was written "on a note" vaguely hinted at using a program such as Notepad.

 

Once you've removed all the line breaks and turned on wordwrap, you can change the window size under the answer becomes visible:

 

RC17Answer_zpsb1c929d4.png

 

The famous individual can be none other than our very own Oda!

 

There were 21 correct answers this week, and the five winners are:

beaupoem, omniw, Amarande, MatsuTana and Shomaye!

Congratulations!

 

Everyone else that answered correctly but did not get selected for the weekly prize have earned 5 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!

This one kinda looks easy but I don't think I can do it on my phone :P

Ralis, you should have named well-chewed pencils as the prize for the next conundrum :P (remembering the named gangster mask reward)

:D

naaah, i missed quite a few of these puzzles due to work, and i accidentally did a typo on the one previous to last weeks.. typing PTFIT instead of PTFIO.

I'm a puzzler at heart though, and look forward to these every week :D they're great fun.

The concept is interesting but I don't really see how to have people submit an answer for that one...
