Just a small town negg, livin' in a lonely negg
She took the midnight negg goin' anywhere
Just a city negg, born and raised in south Negg
He took the midnight negg goin' anywhere

A negg in a smokey negg
A smell of negg and cheap negg
For a negg they can share the negg
It goes on and on and on and on

O-kay. Stuff we know from the logic thing, based on a quick reread (and the info from viewing source/checking the dropdowns in the Solve Puzzle tab):

The members of the party are Selvin, Rutu, Hurok, Ricky, and Voughn.
The lands they went to are Brightvale, Lost Desert, Altador, Kiko Lake, and Shenkuu.
The neggs available are Clockwork, Glass, Cloud, [blank] and [blank].
The professions available are knight, wizard, [blank], [blank] and [blank].

We know the following, based on the text outright saying it:
Selvin didn't go to Lost Desert, he didn't go to Shenkuu (because Rutu did) and he didn't go to Brightvale (because he didn't go to Brightvale, he also couldn't have taken the glass negg).
Voughn took the Cloud Negg (because he didn't take the glass negg, he could not take the cloud negg to Brightvale).
Rutu went to Shenkuu (because he did not go to Brightvale, he did not take the glass negg).
The Glass Negg went to Brightvale.
Since the Glass negg went to Brightvale, neither the Clockwork nor Cloud Neggs went to Brightvale.
Whoever the knight is did NOT take the clockwork negg.

Things I'm not sure about:

The knight didn't go to Altador, based on the vague hint in entry 5 that somebody wanted to go stargazing, and it was obviously not referring to the knight at the same time. Running on the same assumption, Rutu isn't the knight.

My eyes hurt. Anybody else?

reposting this from the other thread to this one i guess :p


Maybe this is a dumb hunch, but Selvin doesn't like scamanders, right? And apparently he's not going to Shenkuu either (idk someone told me this....)
That would leave two options for him - Altador and Kiko Lake.
I was just looking at the map, and Altador is connected to Lost Desert...would that possibly rule him out of LD as well, making it only possible for him to go to Kiko Lake?


idk..haha

Go back and read the entries again. They specifically say he won't go to Lost Desert. He won't go to Brightvale either. Also, your last line makes no suggestion whatsoever that he can't be going to Altador. He's not going to Shenkuu because Rutu is. He remains with two options: Altador and Kiko Lake.

I don't think it can be solved yet unless you get blindly lucky. The only definite answers possible at this point are that it isn't Brightvale, Voughn didn't take it, and that if it is Shenkuu, Rutu took it there.

We've sort of mentioned that in various ways already. The problem at the moment is that there's no reliable way to determine which one is definitely right. Also, your post doesn't offer any explanations as to where some of those assumptions are coming from.

I think it will be either Rutu or selvin.

Rutu isnt the knight and is going shenkuu

Selvin is the wizard and isnt going brightvale or LD

vough is taking the cloud negg

hurok/ricky whoever is the knight isnt taking the clockwork

Hurok/Ricky whoever is going to brightvale is taking the glass negg.

My placeholder guess is Rutu to Shenkuu, ONLY because it's the only definite pair of who and where so far and I wanted to have at least a guess in place already. We'll see if they release anymore entries.

... "The earlier you guess, the better your reward." The idea is to figure it out quickly.

is it just me, or are people overthinking things a bit too much? Read what the popup says when you go to enter your choices:

Based on your current selections, you believe that you're looking for ????? who delivered the Clockwork Negg to ?????. Are you certain this is the guess you want to submit?

So in essence, we're not looking to choose who took any of the other neggs where etc, we're looking to choose who we think took the CLOCKWORK negg to which destination.

Yes, and the problem with that is we don't know who took which one anywhere. It's a process of elimination.

Indeed it is. Although, if you want a chance at a better prize, I would just take a guess out of the remaining characters and lands. Personally I think I will go with Hurok (or Ricky, as i'm yet to decide) to Altador. Kiko Lake seems to be the choice destination of Selvin so far. Shenkuu seems to be the choice of Rutu. Obviously as the days continue, your chances at a good prize diminish but the chances at getting the guess right increase.

I don't see a reason not to guess early on, since you can change it anytime before the due date's up. Also how do you arrive at Kiko Lake for Selvin? Altador is still wide open as a possibility as far as I can tell.

You're right. Altador IS a possibility, from reading through the clues so far, it seems Selvin (the wizard) isn't going to venture to either the Lost Desert OR Brightvale (so that rules them out). With Rutu wanting to venture to Shenkuu, this rules that destination out for Selvin too. So this leaves only Kiko Lake OR Altador. In the clues it just suggests 'another' and doesn't mention names (so in essence, this is where my guess comes in :p )

Yeah... this is why my first post in the thread has every conclusion I've personally come to, as well as an explanation if it's something that wasn't explicitly said in the text. :D

I ruled out Selvin taking the Clockwork Negg early on. Entry 2 says:

One thing we've decided is that, to throw off those that might seek out the relic, the team's remaining members will be taking different types of Neggs to four other destinations.
For instance, the wizard of the team...

I read that as the Wizard being one of the decoys.

What it says is that everybody except the one carrying the clockwork negg is a decoy.

"For instance" normally means "For example" btw.

Although I don't quite get it; if Selvin the wizard wasn't carrying the clockwork negg, then why mention him so many times? :/
