  • The Var' Equinallin?

    Ville already said: It has nothing to do with the english language.
    And, before you ask: No other language, either.

    the banana thing is a good clue, if you still aren't aware of the agranam clue, it's the peeling part that does it

    Oh, he got the anagram clue all right. What he's probably having trouble with is figuring out how many words to try to end up with.

    Still not getting a thing. We're typing in English, right? BTW, what that rag man is, exactly? Some kind of a rag-doll?
    And before someone repeats that, if it is in none language, I can't and I won't solve it. PERIOD.
    P.S. No one can actually. So, either all these people who solved it lie, or your message is just deceiving.

    Not that rag man, silly. A rag-man.

    No, I wrote it as a rag-man before, and shall continue to do so. Besides, "a ragman" is still two words (articles count for this one).

    OK, OK. A rag-man. Its translation goes like a man made of rags. Do you mean that?

    You try to translate too much. What do a rag-man, a granma and argaman have in common?

    You, good sir, are on the track to be the most surprised individual ever upon finding the answer, if I've read this conversation right.

    Sorry? What?
    "Grim Reaper" said:

    Yay! They have similar letters! WOW, how didn't I notice that before?
    That's actually the way I've been trying to solve it. But received only crap by now. So what now?

    I do think that solving the riddle requires some knowledge that is not common among newcomers.

    I am not sure how to help them without giving the answer away though.

    Venom31 7 years ago
    Well that's what I was talking about! This clearly crosses out A LOT of previous posts' statements, that lead to the wrong way. So.
    1) This IS in English still, I guess. Because any word is anyway in some language, and I got to know it to find it out.
    2) This IS something that longer-term-only fellows can understand. Unlike the one... I don't remember who wrote it.
    Ah, the anagram. Now I see how it's called. Great. There are different rules, however. For example, adding and deleting characters may be prohibited, so "granma" isn't an anagram for "a rag-man". To an extent.
    #
    Venom31 7 years ago
    Oh, and does the answer fit into a statement:
    <word> is a collection of <same word>?
    Just interesting. It's one of "Var' Equinallin"s partial argamans.

    *EDIT* I forgot! One of them is also one Notrium mod's name, too. However, I don't think that's it. Unless it was in development even before Notrium was finished.

    Not every word has to be in a language.
    #
    Anonymous1157 7 years ago
    "What is a word but a collection of..?" is just a hint. In fact, you've already solved it by figuring out what an anagram is.

    I should restate this since you missed it the first time:

    The solution is not language dependent. That, more than any other clue, should give it away, since there are very few things that meet that condition.

    You don't have to be a long-time member to get it, but you're more likely to have certain information if you've been here longer.

    Only inside software is punctuation considered part of an anagram. It's the same thing with palindromes... otherwise "a man, a plan, a canal; Panama" wouldn't be a palindrome (if you don't believe me, reverse "AMANAPLANACANALPANAMA" and see what you get). Since all punctuation (including spaces) is ignored, it is (there is another kind of palindrome, whereby it's words instead of letters that are mirrored, but you've just changed the unit size, not really the fundamental rules).

    Calling it non-language dependent is REALLY hard to understand until after you have the solution. On the other hand, if the answer to this hint happens to occur to you, you would instantly have the answer to the anagram.

    ... Bah, I'm not helping much.

    Meaning it's a name or some other thing I don't even know of.

    You and Amarth are mutually exclusive. I don't know whom to trust, LOL.

    Who talks about punctuation whatsoever?

    We seem to be talking about different things. I meant that you can't spell or write down any word without sounds or letters of some language. What you are saying means just that this word exists in any language. Otherwise that statement is false. Which leads to a thought that either you know all languages, alive and dead, or, alas, you may be mistaken.

    So, I was on a false track by applying the answer . I see. Thanks, anyway.

    I stick to what I said. Not every word has to be in a language.
    You write stuff down using the alphabet, not a language.
    The latin alphabet is used in most parts of Europe, but that doesn't automatically mean that we all write latin, does it.

    That's why I bolded a granma instead of just granma, silly.

    ... Mmmyes, this puzzle is really only dependent on the alphabet being used when it comes down to it. However, that doesn't help much as a hint to an anagram, since you already have the characters to be used.

    You would have had to write your new text in the old post and delete the new post, which was at the end of the queue of posts in the thread at the time. It's too late now, unless a moderator would like to do it for you.

    Not at all. Actually, we're saying the same thing.

    Anyway, you're pretty close now, so it's time to throw out more obscure clues. Think big. Very big. All-encompassing big. God.

    Talk about obscure!

    If you see the Buddha walking down the road, kill him.

    There, there's my obscure clue.

    You had me at obscureness. I simply don't get it myself.

    And when buddha reincarnates, and you see him walking down the road again, kill him again. Just for the sake of fun.
