Incorrect.


I suppose reposting a hint in the official thread is okey. Just in case you skipped to the riddle and missed this little thing:

I think this passage is important : Should ONE enter they would be cut down to size till they're no greater than the 5 kings.

I interpret this as two things. First whenever we have a 1 we remove it.
Or, any numbers greater than 5 will be reduced, perhaps by one.
Supposing Rocksmash is on the right track (which i think he is) We have 22461. That would mean : 22451 or by my first interpretation 22460 - This is incorrect because someone else guessed it.

So my guess is.

You think the Gauss matrix is involved?

I also think rocksmash is on the right track, but I want to wait for a hint until I begin guessing. Some of my thoughts:

The culprit is probably a female (hence princess; im thinking in the line that the princess is the culprit)
Possibly a moderator, as she has a 'big sword' to cleave away at the enemies (evil-doers of AS). Or at least someone who can drive people away with her big mouth/sword. So the culprit has many posts.
She's been a member for 6 years or more.
"The sword is broken" so its been a while since she last posted.
I'm not sure, but "there was an end" refers to the end of old AS forum? So the pricess is someone who wasn't from the old AS forum, thus anyone who registered sometime close to the opening of this AS forum is not the culprit.
I think the 'five kingdom' is crucial but I can't think anything that might go with it.
Also, the picture... there is a hand pointing to the apple.. not too sure what to make of it other than search it, but haven't found anything noteworthy, yet.

Since the princess is a midget, I figured their post count should be low, but with high rep (fat sword), and not necessarily reflecting on their user status (mod or otherwise).

I can't remember anyone with "apple" in their username, even less so if they've changed it...

Let's hope Kina isn't offended to being likened to a midget princess with a fat sword.

Is the fat sword a euphamism by any chance?

I know this is prolly a wild guess and likely incorrect, and the fact her profile is not accessible to anyone but her friends, but is it ok for me to guess the riddle refers to Narona?

Well I don't think that picture is important. Because when you click it it links to another picture where the apple is a sad vegetable...Actually there are 5 differences between the pictures...one is vegetable...5 differences = 5 kings? I'm confused.

i hope you dont put professor layton reference on the riddle. if you did. it will be unfair becouse most people in here is not familiar about professor layton.

if you want to make reference try to be anime related

I made it 100% from scratch, so professor layton fans (along with the rest of the Internet for that matter) don't know anything more then you do. Just to be clear, all you need to solve the riddle is posted by Kairin in the thread, and there's no obscure reference to professor layton—the image could have belonged to any other source. I don't think NW would actually accept riddles that use anything more then common knowledge & knowhow to solve; at best, as you say, there might be anime references (of popular anime).

Hope that clears your fears :)

How long will this one Riddle go on for until you call it off, and we get an official answer for it? I'm very curious what the answer is.

From the riddle thread…
Quote:
It might prove really easy for some, but very very hard for others, so I'm going to let everyone puzzle over it until it is solved or all the other riddles are solved. If this isn't solved quickly another riddle will be posted in about one week.
