    !SPOILER ALERT!

    It’s a Sudoku if my memory serves me correctly

  2. Lacero says:

    Clever :)

  3. DSX says:

    lol, funny. Still makes me instinctively look for an “organize” button to press so everything would stack into 4 slots…

  4. Not-a-Bot says:

    It’s sudoku, yeah. I remember solving it! :D

    How is that a spoiler?

  6. Alex Grose says:

    brilliant. Nice solve as well!

  7. Cunningbeef says:

    I’m actually really impressed that it’s solvable. Dedication!

  8. Pidesco says:

    I’d play that RPG.

  9. Optimaximal says:

    Classic! Laughed at ‘Puzzle Master’.

    Anyone else think the character portrait has really short legs?

  10. BJ Blazkowicz says:

    I hate Sodokus.

  11. sbs says:

    not-a-bot: haha well done, I’m in the middle of solving it, too.
    Optimaximal: The part that makes me worry is that he has no pants.

  12. Lake says:

    I actually got the joke this week.

  13. Nick says:

    It’s not a portrait, just showing what’s equipped =P

    Either way it has no trousers, but maybe they don’t make chainmail pantaloons that are wearable by the puzzlemaster class.

  14. Chaos Theory says:

    Talk about spooky RNG happenings, when I clicked on the article, the “Revisit an Old Story” was for “Today I’m Annoyed About: Action-RPG Inventories”. Eerie…

  15. Leeks! says:

    The joke was funny, but the fact that it’s solvable makes this one of those things I now have to show everyone.

  16. Dorian Cornelius Jasper says:

    Holy crap, it’s an actual working puzzle. Am sending this sucker around.

  17. Heliocentric says:

    heh…. i am gonna go program a sudoku application with a logic bomb in it, that after a certain date every minute 1 item on the puzzle will change.

    Then my grasp on world power will be at hand!

  18. sana says:

    How is it amazing that you can solve it? One could just take an existing puzzle and replace the numbers with objects..

    BJ Blazkowicz says:

    I hate Sodokus

    I like the cut of this man’s jib

  20. Mantees says:

    I offer 45 gold pieces for your +5 shield

  21. Lachlan says:

    +5 to what, though?

    Best check that. It might be +5 delicious smell.

  22. power says:

    There are various descriptions from ancient times for the power stone, and it about each of the power stones

    Various effects are described, and have been handed down.

    – In feng shui, crystal has been treated as an important stone (power stone).
