I can cut steel if used right.
I can be shaped into anything if the conditions are right.
People use me every day without thinking about it.

The man who sells it wants it not. The man who buys it needs it not. The man who needs it knows it not.
What is it?

Gregam: A storm
Dr Nicoltas Rush: A tetrahedron
Pinkie Pie: Water
Rainbow Dash: Also water
CrazyBE: A coffin

The only one I'm unsure of is the one by Rush. Care to enlighten me? I've heard too many riddles that stumped me simply because the answer made no sense, so I need to be sure this is not the case.

VERY close actually. On the right track, just take it one step further. What is it that a line has 1 of, a triangle has 2 of, and a tetrahedron has 3 of. Then just take it one step further. This isn't something most people will know off the top of their head and would require a bit of investigation on wikipedia or such to find, which is why I said it's "strange to you," and gave the clue that it's referenced in TOR, pretty obviously by the Gree droids.

I like how you think outside the Tesseract. Your prize is in the mail.

Congratulations to Applejack, CrazyBE, Braeburn, Doombah, and Dr Nicoltas Rush.

And with that, the finale begins. You now have all the pieces of the final puzzle, quite literally.

The first person to post its solution in this thread will receive the prize of their very own custom pony model.

Good luck, and I'll see you on the other side.

It does seem like a bit of a mexican standoff, doesn't it? We can't really be sure if the contents of the puzzle are the answer, or perhaps a final riddle that we have to race to solve. So we take risk by sharing our pieces, but on the other hand, if we don't, the answer may be unrecoverable. Interesting dilemma.

Well, someone has to take charge here, so i'll volunteer. If you guys want, I can get the pieces and put them together. I'll take a video of me finding out where the code takes us and we can go from there. If it's only one prize, I don't know that i'll want it. I'm sure one of you wants it more than me, but it's not like I have no interest. Smile Once we have the answer, we'll have to come up with a fair way to determine who gets whatever.

Of course, we could always just get a custom of the Enigmare and cut it into 5 pieces and each take one. XD

After some brief, cursory data analysis, I'm basically convinced there's no "trick" to this. There was no hidden text chunk in the PNG file, no subtle pattern in the seemingly useless blank area, etc. Probably over thinking it after Notch's 0x10c riddle where a program was encoded in the image :/

So I'm convinced it really is just what it seems at face value. Perhaps it's no coincidence that there are 6 pieces, and 6 elements of harmony. Each individually is useless, only together can they be used.

So, in the spirit of cooperation, I"ll share my piece, and hopefully we can get to the bottom of this.

If the owners of the Elemen...uh, puzzle pieces want to ship them my way, just email me: doombah@gmail.com

Just include your forum name in the subject in case it happens to get flagged as the spams.

I'm really curious where this is going to lead us.

Rivest has my piece. Just ask him to send it.

Don't care about the final prize of something I don't like.
You NEVER ask winners to share what they won, it makes for a terrible contest.

Doombah, pic has been sent and I retract my claim for the prize. In all honesty I feel Rivest actually deserves it after how long he has been chasing Enigmare.

Who said I stopped? I still have all 3 pieces saved I just got busy with life. Just cuz I don't go on random tangents and blame random people anymore doesnt mean I gave up

lol late reply because I only check the latest topic in a subforum

Yeah I can understand that.
Still: saying you should just get it without any further contest just because of what you did for the first few challenges doesn't feel right imo.

Then again I don't care about the price anyways so it's not my decision.

Why would you blame random people? Flippy is enigmare.



Anyways: did anyone win this thing and if so who?

I collected the six pieces. 4 of them fit fine. Two don't. They don't even fit together properly or with the other 4. I sent Enigmare a message, but i've yet to hear back.

Ok. Finally got all the correct portions of the QR code and pieced them together (Paint FTW). Here's the final image and what it spit out below it.



The Elements of Harmony
cannot harm me,
so the thing you musk* seek is
my identity.
With that in mind, if you truly
must know,
my game's final riddle can be
found in the show.

*Not a typo. That's what the code came back as.

Well, there's only one riddle in FiM that I know of, and it's the one that Discord gives the mane 6 in the Season 2 premiere:

Discord: To retrieve your missing Elements, just make sense of this change of events. Twists and turns are my master plan, then find the Elements back where you began.

Well, i've combed back through this thread to the first riddle and first clue and I don't think anything has changed. I could be wrong, though. This is where we're at right now.

The answer to Discord's riddle was Ponyville (where the Elements were hidden and where they had their first adventure). And...that's about all I got right now.

but where was our first adventure? the first guild contest? adobe axon? Swtor forums? team fortress? or is it even the correct riddle?

Or maybe its not our first adventure but his? his very first prank the very first thing he did.

Am I right miss Enigmare or should I say Pinkie Pie?
