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.

 

Prizes are always subject to change based on Oda's discretion.

 

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

iRO Wiki Renewal Database

iRO Wiki Classic Database

Google

 

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.

SmokieIdea_zps9afed806.pngLast Week's ChallengeSmokieConfused_zps942a489a.png

Week 23: Word Web [ 2/4 - 2/10 ]

 

rc23fixed_zps8348d6ad.png

 

While battling your way over Mt. Mjolnir, slaughtering countless numbers of Argos, you happen to notice that their webs contain a seemingly random jumble of letters. But then, you notice that they're not random at all! It turns out that these spiders, in their webs, spell out a Ragnarok-related word or phrase if you connect the letters, starting on one side and ending on the other (though you're not sure which side is the beginning and which side is the end). The path the letters take can go in any direction as long as the letters are connected. In addition, the same space is never used more than once.

 

What word or phrase is spelled out in this web?

 

Last week's prize:

Party Hard Pack

SmokieIdea_zps9afed806.pngThe SolutionSmokieConfused_zps942a489a.png

 

The answer is NAMELESS ISLAND.

 

RC23SOLVED_zps421a80ac.png

 

Starting on the "N" on the right hand side, you could eventually find your way to the "D" on the left hand side to spell out the place where the cursed monastery is located: NAMELESS ISLAND.

 

There were 23 correct answers this week, and the five winners are:

NyuX, Kelly, Bao11, Necrohealiac and 1392140604170018137 (aka Lady Nara)!

Congratulations!

 

Everyone else that answered correctly but did not get selected for the weekly prize have earned 4 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!

The tie between Kelly and Nyu *still* persists... Since both finally won the prize this week.

 

Maybe this will give someone else the chance to take the lead on the scoreboard? :D

 

I don't anticipate this one to be that easy... Good luck!

Damn... ;___; I sent mine as Dragon Land....

The reason I chose that as my answer because I took the word(s) "Ragnarok-related word" and that came to me relating it to Hugel's Entrance to Abysmal Lake entrance.

 

 

It may seems to be too far away from the solution but  I have fun with this... :3

Since Ralis didn't object to some of the other items being named earlier, I guess this wouldn't be considered a spoiler.

I sent "Dragon's Island" when I looked it up it seems there will be a future dungeon called that way so I thought it was a valid solution.

Other funny ones I found where "Dance on land" then there were the words "Rental", "Talon" and "Sleep" which led to nothing anyway.

 

I can't believe I programmed a partial solver just for this.
