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 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.
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 clarifying questions you may have.
This Week's Challenge
Week 32: The Perfect Puzzle [ 4/22 - 4/28 ]
It's the perfect puzzle because it's... Actually a puzzle.
...Don't judge me, I'm not a clever man.
How many pieces are in the puzzle pictured above? Make sure to only count pieces from the image that's been cut up; don't count anything from the background!
Hint: Use the image from the Survey page, the forums here like to shrink images from their original size.
This week's prize:
Skull Cap 
The competition ends Tuesday, April 28th at 11:59 PM PST! Good luck!
