Advent Puzzle 1: Solved and Cryptic Clue unlocked

Post by Blackvision » Thu Dec 01, 2016 12:12 pm

Yvonne returned to her room in the Society, considering the challenge that had been issued. She'd make sure her name was first among those proving that they were Renowned Explorers.

She picked up the latest pile of fan-mail she'd received and glanced over it, disposing of most of the letters without a second glance. Then one caught her eye. 'Renowned Explorers Advent Challenge - Yvonne's Puzzle'.

She gave a thin smile. Only right that she would be picked for the first puzzle. Clearly their creator understood her importance.

Yvonne unrolled the paper, examining it carefully.

Puzzle: My family are experts at getting places - between all of us, there's not many locations we haven't been, and everywhere we go, we're cute and adorable - though not all of us are friendly! Find as many of my family as you can!

Solution: Sheep

Cryptic Clue: Muffles

With your answer submission, include a picture of the answer from an event in the game with Yvonne in the picture (You're recommended to have her as captain for the best chance of her being present).

A complete submission will include:
  • Your answer for the puzzle in text
  • A screenshot with the solution to the puzzle in it and with Yvonne in the image too. This must be from an event in game - encounter images do not count.

Bonus point: If you are the first person posting your event as your submission (and it is the right answer), you earn 1 bonus point.
  • Each player can earn a maximum of 1 additional bonus point by doing this
  • If there are two submissions using the same image/reference, I'll be going with the one with the earliest 'Last Edited' date, so you're recommended not to change details/wording of your submission unless you are changing your submission completely
  • So long as the pictures do not match the same in-game text as another submission, it counts as a unique entry for the bonus point even if it is from the same event as someone else's submission; meaning that one event may have multiple options for bonus submissions
  • Players can donate images to others, either for the basic point or for the bonus point if they've secured their own bonus point already - though it is worth crediting the player you're receiving the image from if you didn't find it yourself.
  • You may use either the base game or More To Explore for this puzzle
Additional Secret: For a (minor) cryptic clue towards the grand challenge, the community must submit at least ten different submission images with the correct answer before the deadline.

Solution: (Unknown)

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 ]

(To reveal hidden text, etc, highlight the text)
