The Ralis Conundrum
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.
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.
This Week's Challenge
Week 19: Christmas Conundrum [ 1/7 - 1/13 ]
It's been awhile! Sorry for the hiatus (and for the lateness of this conundrum). The holidays were a busy time for me at work, and I've also been taking a bit of a break from RO recently. Now that a new term of school has started, it seems like it's time for another round of conundrums!
Speaking of busy holidays... Do you know who else had a busy holiday? That's right, our favorite Ragnarok family... The Brandos!
Mr. and Mrs. Brando sat down with their three children on Christmas to enjoy a nice home-cooked dinner together. Each of them sat in a particular place at the table and each of them had a favorite item from the menu. Your job is to figure out who sat where and who liked what using these clues:
1. The person to the left of Cherice loved either the ham or beef.
2. Brando Jr. sat between Mr. and Mrs. Brando.
3. The person to the right of Cherice loved the roast beef.
4. Mrs. Brando made the mashed potatoes and pecan pie.
5. Cherice sat to the left of one of her brothers.
6. Mr. Brando cooked the ham and dinner rolls.
7. The person that loves pecan pie sat to the left of Kipp.
8. No one cooked their favorite dish.
9. The person to the left of Mrs. Brando loved the dinner rolls.
Who sat to the left of Mr. Brando and what was their favorite menu item?
This week's prize (back by popular demand):
The competition ends Tuesday, January 13th at 11:59 PM PST! Good luck!
