Deep Down in the Dungeon

For all (us) fans of RPG games (pen&paper, Computer, or LARP), lets come up with neat little puzzles which can be used to spice up these games. You know the type of setting: Group of adventurers (or single hero) crawls down into the deep dungeon of the evil cult to be presented with this stupid puzzle which locks the next door etc.

Puzzles in this challenge should be:

  • stylish (whatever that means), with an eye on nice visuals (when appropriate)
  • usable in the context of such games without requiring ˋexternalˋ help such as Google searches, computer algorithms or image processing etc.
  • solveable in a reasonable time-span by a group of gamers ( <1hr )
  • be presented in an "easily reproducible way" for game masters, i.e. images to be printed etc. are all provided in a nice-to-use manner.
