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.
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.
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 26: Smart Darts [ 3/4 - 3/10 ]
Since the Week 5 Conundrum, the owner of that bar in the southwest corner of Prontera has been getting a lot more patrons. So many, in fact, that he's come up with a new contest! On the back wall of the bar he's placed a dartboard (it's pictured above). The values of each space around the outer perimeter, as well as the center, have been marked on the board. Each space closer to the center acts as a multiplier (x1, or face value, for hitting a space on the outer ring, x2 for hitting a space in the middle ring, and x3 for hitting a space in the inner ring). The center circle is worth 100 points, but that's kind of pointless: the goal is to win a prize by scoring 91 points with three darts. However, there's a catch. There are three colors on the board, and you can only hit one of each color. In addition, the score from the red space must be the largest number while your score from the green space must be the smallest number (after multiplication).
What is the total value of the three numbers you must hit if they were added together at face value (before any multiplication from hitting middle / inner spots)?
This week's prize:
The competition ends Tuesday, March 10th at 11:59 PM PST! Good luck!
