  • Seeing it as there were multiple solutions to the day 2 event, will there be a reshuffle of the rewards? And will the other correct answer still count towards the end prizes?

  • //Feel free to merge this with my previous post


    But I just realised that my original post isn't clear at all.


    You have to draw new winners, as you have to accept all valid answers.

  • Wasn't the question is Nef(whatever) a priestess? Did it ask about the other ones?

  • This hero adventure is ridiculous. looks like too much effort for 50 gold.


    I like solving more simple quests. ( like how many fingers a left handed man have at his right hand) could be 5, could be 4 and everything in between 8o

  • You're asking TK to do extra work than the absolute minimum? Of course he is going to ignore this!

    Nah he has already visited the thread after I posted about it, but chose to ignore it.


    @Ameno It's effecting all domains, so maybe it's you who need to look into it?


    Or maybe the legal department, as you are technically breaking the law.

  • Well, I think we need to accept all possible answers as correct. I''ll inform CMs. Still doing some math.


    My bad - though I asked 7 (!) people, quite experienced in the logical puzzles like that, to check this task, and they all came to the same conclusion without any doubt, that proves that the mind of the whole community is stronger than mind of separate individuals.


    P.S. Mind checking the task with the changed last condition?


    If Amizi is a priestess, so is Bennu.
    • If Bennu is a priestess, then either Phoeba is a priestess or Amizi is not a priestess.
    • If I am not a priestess, then Amizi is a priestess, but not Phoeba.
    If I am the priestess, so is Amizi.


    Will it give only one answer?

  • The way I looked at it...

    If I am not a priestess, then Amizi is a priestess, but not Phoeba.
    If I am the priestess, so is Amizi

    So if I'm not or I am a priestess, Amizi still is, so that means by some logic Amizi 100% is. And you've got to go from that further.


    If Amizi 100% is, then Bennu should be.


    • If Bennu is a priestess, then either Phoeba is a priestess or Amizi is not a priestess.

    Either this, or either that. But since the part of Amizi not being a priestess is false, then the first one is true, therefore Phoeba is as well.



    • If I am not a priestess, then Amizi is a priestess, but not Phoeba.

    Amizi is 100% (due to 1st quote), so Phoeba shouldn't be, so you're left with Amizi and Bennu as priestesses... but that causes problems here:


    • If Bennu is a priestess, then either Phoeba is a priestess or Amizi is not a priestess.

    Since Phoeba is supposedly out of the picture, then Amizi shouldn't be a priestess... but she's 100% one. So you end up here:



    If I am not a priestess, then Amizi is a priestess, but not Phoeba.

    So, I'm guessing from all this: Neferati (me) isn't a priestess, nor is Phoeba. The only 2 confirmed ones are:
    Bennu - Which is only one, if Amizi is.
    Amizi - Which is one if I am or am NOT a priestess, so she's definitely one.


    Phoeba has 1 statement saying she is, and one she isn't. So I've counted her out, same goes with Neferati.


    I'm not 100% sure I am right though, just stating the method I've used.


    Now that that's said, I just realized I wrote my answer differently in the Hero Adventure topic. :D



    Sorry for the quote spam @Ameno, this way it felt like a simpler step-by-step of how I'd try to find the solution.

  • I guess this part is a bit different.


    If I am not a priestess, then Amizi is a priestess, but not Phoeba.


    If N is priestess, then this sentence has no bearing.


    IF X is true then Y is true doesn't mean if X false, then Y is false.

  • Aaaargh, I messed up here:


    • If Bennu is a priestess, then either Phoeba is a priestess or Amizi is not a priestess.

    Amizi is one, so the latter option is double negation (not - not priestess). So that would mean Phoeba in fact is a priestess as well, due to or this or that, and the latter or option is discarded.


    But then...

    • If I am not a priestess, then Amizi is a priestess, but not Phoeba.

    If Neferati is false, then Amizi is True, but not Phoeba. But Phoeba in fact is True


    This riddle is just...

  • Nothing wrong in this riddle, only some people trying to be too clever ending up confusing themselves.

    There is something wrong with the original riddle: it's unsolvable. We were given four clues - or let's call them constraints - that are not strong enough to leave us with one and only one valid solution. As it is, four alternatives satisfy the given constraints and saying that any of those hypothesis in particular is the true solution is simply wrong. All we can answer is "we don't know", as there isn't enough information.
