  1. Never thought of the Shield of David as an octahedron...Crazy geomancers.

  2. Alright... As I wondered about the relationship between the angiens and the shades and the icon of it discussed here, the I Ching came very much to mind, along with a suspicion that the relationship between the two species resembled one of the relationships between hexagrams. So I of course asked the i Ching how to interpret this relationship: "How can I understand the angiens through the shades?" The answer had some personal undertones, which I won't focus on here (Essentially, it's telling me -- but not you! -- to give up or expect very slow progress on this puzzle.) P'i, with a nine in the fifth place: 12. P'i - Standstill [Stagnation] ----- --ϴ-- above Ch'ien The Creative, Heaven ----- -- -- -- -- below K'un The Receptive, Earth -- -- "Creative/Receptive" reminded me of Mur's description of the relationship as "Question/Answer," and "heaven" reminded me of the wings angiens have. There's a lot more to be made of this, but especially note the judgement and the image, which may describe both my relationship with this question and the relationship between the species: The Judgement Standstill. Evil people do not further The perseverance of the superior man. The great departs; the small approaches. The Image Heaven and earth do not unite: The image of Standstill. Thus the superior man falls back upon his inner worth In order to escape the difficulties. He does not permit himself to be honored with revenue. Nine in the fifth place means: Standstill is giving way. Good fortune for the great man. "What if it should fail, what if it should fail?" In this way he ties it to a cluster of mulberry shoots. By the way, above, Heaven (the creative) is turning into Flame(the clinging,) suggesting that Stagnation can become Progress. This might happen through the operator of Fire over Heaven, "Possession in Great Measure." Fire in heaven above: The image of Possession in Great Measure. Thus the superior man curbs evil and furthers good, And thereby obeys the benevolent will of heaven. Necrovion won't change anything any time soon, this says (and with the recent turmoil there, I suspect recovery is not nearby;) Following the shades will not lead to progress.

  3. I'm on the forums again!

  4. I DID read said guides, so it should be shocking that I didn't think of that! Thanks again!
  5. [quote name='Kafuuka' date='10 August 2009 - 04:35 PM' timestamp='1249936522' post='39167'] I know an algorithm that is order n³ and it doesn't require jumps/breaks/continues, only simple loops. There is also only one solution for the puzzle, although it is possible for similar puzzles to have multiple solutions. Afaik that qualifies for P-complete. [/quote] Eep, I'll have to keep thinking now. Slowness is unacceptable! Only one solution? I could swear there were infinitely many.
  6. Thanks so much! Any tips on gaining losses as an mp4? I've successfully avoided wins, but am having difficulty making the leap from "retreat" to "loss".
  7. [quote name='dst' date='24 September 2008 - 06:33 AM' timestamp='1222252413' post='17249'] Yes it is possible to use just 1 as long as it has 301 ve or more. In the moment it has less...another ritual will be selected (that has 301 or more ve). If another ritual is not available then a random one will be generated. Piece of advice:buy more creatures. 6 is not enough... You may want to read about rituals here: <a href="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com//index.php?showforum=22" target="_blank">http://magicduel.invisionzone.com//index.php?showforum=22</a> <a href='index.php?showtopic=1972'>How to survive in MD world</a> Also, there is a topic for comments and i'll gladly respond to any questions there [/quote] It seems that all forum links are giving me errors?
  8. I've already solved the Gazebo, but to those who solved it with coded algorithms, is the puzzle P-complete?
  9. Reading through this topic, I now have a strong urge to crreate an alt and experience all these great new things. how foolish of me to deprive myseelf of this experience! Ah well, "One must understand the purpose of a rule before one maay break it." Just sayin' EDIT: An important point is that people actually have alters in Real Life too. Let me explain. We all know that in different scenarios, the same person can act differently. It's a fact of life- We carry different "moods," different "states o f mind" waiting to be activated by different, possibly similar situations. What some don't realize is that the mind is actually built BASED ON this phenomenon. Get a person drunk and teach them something; they're quite likely to remember it whilst drunk,, and even when drunk in the future! However, sober them up and I can mostly guarantee they'll forget almost everything. (This has been tested rigorously.) Basically, each of us has a whole set of identities with different "triggers". while some information overlaps between them, which makes us us, much varies. Magic Duel is meant to reflect life to a certain extent, and thus absolutely MUST allow for alters.
  10. Apparently, Mur is a river in Central Europe known to contain small amounts of gold, used since the 4th century BC as a power source. If you aspire to value of this river, Mur, then I wish you luck.

  11. Wow, I should read the forums more often. A few hours ago I sent you an answer based on the Yahoo answers one, accompanied by a note that it was from Yahoo answers. Please forgive me! It's really a shame; that was a really good riddle. I can be fairly confident that I know the name of the person who reported it, as I probably discussed the issue with her via PM. Hmm, I hope you have some other riddles in store The rules, of course, are clear. No collaboration. Googling isn't collaborating. Asking for answers is.
  12. Yes, there is a highly obvious, boring, and time-consuming algorithm that can be used for this puzzle, doubtless far from optimal.
  13. I solved the puzzle after about twenty hours of semi-brute force search over teh course of three days, but everyone knows what it looks like; no need to "learn something new" and post a pic
