Advent Puzzle 16 Solution:(Unknown) Deadline: Friday 23rd December 12:00 noon CET

Story:
Ivan looked about the gardens of the Renowned Explorers International Society with a peaceful air of relaxation. He'd had enough of people hurrying around trying to find clues - Hatice had even asked to go through their rooms in case someone had missed it - it had been drawing late in the day for puzzle and people were now concerned that they might've missed it.

Ivan didn't mind though. If it turned up, he'd take part, of course, but if it didn't, that wasn't his problem. He strolled casually back towards the headquarters, taking in the evening air and soaking in the splendor of the peaceful environment.

As he reached the entrance, however, he heard a cry go up inside. Evidently someone had found a clue. He made his way in, the other Explorers all excitedly peering over one another's shoulders.

From the chandelier in the main hall, a long piece of string had been hung - and from it, just above everyone's reach, was an envelope. Ivan wondered, briefly, how someone had managed to put it there without alerting everyone; but it didn't seem to matter much as no one could reach it.

The Explorers parted for him to pass, however, and the Russian giant reached up to the envelope, plucking it down carefully. 'Challenge puzzle 16: Ivan's Challenge'.


Puzzle: Someone's been leaving hidden clues in every puzzle - but who or what is behind their actions?

A complete submission will include:
  • Your answer for the puzzle in text.
  • (Optional) The image shows the in-game solution to the puzzle or a direct reference to it
  • You may use either the base game or More To Explore for this puzzle.
Bonus point: Give the correct answer for the puzzle and show clearly (with explanation or images if necessary) where clues have been hidden for the previous challenges. Only one point is awarded for each clue, going to the first submission for it.

EDIT: *An additional bonus point if you can get an in-game image that represents the solution with Ivan in the picture. Only one point for each different event/image of this bonus point.

Additional Secret: For a (minor) cryptic clue towards the grand challenge, the community must also correctly identify the identity of who has been leaving these clues.

Deadline: Friday 23rd December 12:00 noon CET

Spoilers: You may wish to use spoilers so that other players can choose if they wish to know the answer while the puzzle is up or not. To do so, copy this:

(color=#E1EBF2)*Your answer here*(/color)

and replace the brackets ( and ) with [ and ]

Realised I hadn't included one of the bonus point options I'd meant to - now added on:

*An additional bonus point if you can get an in-game image that represents the solution with Ivan in the picture. Only one point for each different event/image of this bonus point.
