    When:
    2018-09-28 18:00 - 2018-10-26 18:00 UTC (The event ends October 26th 1pm CDT)

    What:

    Some of you have wondered where was Net in Riya's event last month. I was busy exploring all the wonderful mazes in the Novia and preparing myself for the new events. Since preparation of in-game events takes time (and resources), here is a fun maths and exploration event for you to keep you busy this month.
    You have to solve one simple equation to win this event. 1st person to solve it correctly will win the Ornate Cornucopia 2016 and 5 golden crowns, however everyone successfully finishing the event in time will also get uniquely numbered 4Brain book with cool puzzles and stuff.

    So, without further ado, here is the simple equation you have to solve:

    W=X-Y-Z

    Now, to find the values of X, Y, Z there are three more equations for you:

    X=5×a-5×b+2×c

    Y=(-17×f-28×d)/(29×e-46×d)

    Z=15×i-10×g+h

    To get the values of a-i, you will have to explore Novia a bit and find the locations where I was in the pictures below. If you find the exact spot I was in, you can use the /loc command to get the coordinates in the form (x, y, z), you should ignore decimal places (e.g. for loc (20.9, -15.4, -196.6) the x = 20, y = -15, z = -196).

    You will find the loc (a, b, c) in this place.

    You will find the loc (d, e, f) in this place.

    You will find the loc (g, h, i) in this place.

    Hints:
    The first maze lies in the biggest city,
    you do not need to be very witty,
    to know the ever increasing rent rates,
    in the district of **********.

    The second maze is a big labyrinth,
    the Lich Sharpshooter really needs a plinth.
    Watch out for the bad avatars doings,
    while searching the Drachvald for the **********.

    Do not listen to any evil lies,
    having friends in the third maze would be wise,
    now when you know the last location lies,
    deep deep down in the hallways of **********.

    Prizes:
    1st place - Ornate Cornucopia 2016 and 5 golden COTOs
    2nd-5th place - 1 golden COTO
    Everyone successfully completing the event - 1st edition of the upcoming 4Brain book (details TBA, but it will contain at least one brain melting puzzle)
    Everyone finding at least one location - gets a chance to win a filled spirits cask with the 4B heraldry

    Daxxe totally surprised me with how quickly he have managed to solve this, he is the first winner, congratullations are in order!

    However there are prizes left and remember that every participant has a chance to win awesome and unique 4B spirit cask. The more you solve the higher your chances. And remember that identifying at least one scene I visited is all you need to get eligible for drawing, so do not be shy and PM me now;)

    I know some people do struggle with this one, so I will provide you with a poem that might help you in your search.
    Complete the following poem and you will have much better idea where to look for the mazes;)

    The first maze lies in the biggest city,
    you do not need to be very witty,
    to know the ever increasing rent rates,
    in the district of **********.

    The second maze is a big labyrinth,
    the Lich Sharpshooter really needs a plinth.
    Watch out for the bad avatars doings,
    while searching the Drachvald for the **********.

    Do not listen to any evil lies,
    having friends in the third maze would be wise,
    now when you know the last location lies,
    deep deep down in the hallways of **********.
