    Where is Riya?

    Yes, where am I? I'm hiding in a maze and your quest is to find me. I'm not lost there. A little bit down you find 4 mazes and I'm in one. To win you have to write me a pm and tell me in which maze and how I'm hiding in the maze.
    You have to either tell me how you solved the riddle or tell me who got lost .. aehmm is hiding in the other mazes.
    You have till end of R57.

    It is not enough proof to find out, that my heraldry has one of the mazes in it. It is just a hint to search in that maze.

    Prizes:
    1. crafted player made dungeon + 10k gold
    2. vase with flowers + 5k gold
    3. vase with flowers + 2,5k gold

    The time is running guys. And just remember, midnight is not 12 it is 0 (zero).
    [​IMG]

    You can run from A to Z or from 0 to 25.

    If you can't find your way from start to the end, try it from the end to the start
    name -> hint 2 -> hint 1

    Ah I miss the 4B riddles and mazes.

    I'm sure you all will be excited about the upcoming player dungeon system and especially when they add in the quest related options like player made NPC dialogue, locked doors that require a key or some "event" to open, etc.

    No doubt you guys and gals will come up with something spectacular once that is all implemented.

    Now, onto solving this puzzle! ;)

    Me too, though I am terrible at both puzzles and mazes. I was always the last person to get through any of the mazes and once Net even had to come in and lead me out. :eek:

    I have very fond memories of the fantastic mazes you guys used to create using wardrobes because there were no blocks or hedges.:)

    This riddle looks deviously simple, but it is simply devious. Be warned trying to solve it might hurt your brain;)

    My brain has already been hurting for a few days on this now. And, while the first hint gives me some ideas, I still have lots to figure out yet.

    PMed a solution.
    But where is Net?

    Note: my office blocks the first 3 mazes, seems "tinypic" is a suspicious website. The last one "ibb" seems to be fine.

    @Net is to small to be left alone in a maze. :p

    Regarding the pics, I had trouble getting the pics shown in the forum.

    I got a tip some time ago: paste the image into discord and use that link. Extremely easy (if you have discord...)

    And: thanks a lot to you and B4 for your riddles/mazes etc.
    The R7 5 story 3D maze is still my favorite memory from early SotA: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/forum/index.php?threads/r7-3d-maze-in-paxlair.12180

    Yes R7 was the best maze release ever (2 mazes in this town). After that release we got the item limit and I still curse @Chris for it.

    Maybe I'm just looking at it the wrong way, but I'm stuck trying to figure this out.

    The clues say "midnight is zero" and you run from A to Z or 0 to 25.

    Logic tells me that 0 = A, 1 =B, 2 = C... 25 =Z. However, with only 12 numbers on a clock, the most letters you can come up with is 24 (if you assume AM and PM represent a different letter for each number). So, where do the other 2 letters fit in?

    Or am I just looking at it all wrong?
