    Salve warriors! Fearless men and women of Travian!

    You prove every time on the battlefields, that you are the best commanders and glorious fighters!

    But what about your wit and logical thinking?

    We invite you to the adventure through the mysterious world of Travian, where you'll have to solve small tasks here and there. This can be a cipher, a logical task, a tricky question about the game or about the history of tribes that live in Travian.

    Starting today we'll post one task a day on the forum.
    You'll have 24 hours to solve that task.

    After that 5 players, who will be chosen randomly among those who gave the correct answers, will get a small prize - 30 gold.
    5 players, who’ve solved all 7 tasks of the series will get 150 gold each!

    ТАSKS:
    Day 1. "The message"
    Day 2. "Company"
    Day 3. "A forest"
    Day 4. "The inn"
    Day 5. "Crazy village"
    Day 6. "The city gates"
    Day 7. "The Gaul treasure"

    Don't miss it!

    How to take part:
    Just post your answer (don't forget to mention your avatar name and game world) in the topic with the question of the day.
    You can discuss the contest in this thread.


    Please note, that your answers will not be visible for 24 hours so that all players would have equal chances to solve this task.
    We'll make them visible and post the next question of the day at 9:00 UTC tomorrow.

    Have fun!

    The messenger used so called Caesar cipher with 1 letter shift.

    30 - Urban
    95 - xxxcallumxxx
    98 - Rosamor

    234- Galbadrakh

    Correct answer is:

    1) They are roman settlers.
    It's only them, who's shown in the answers and ingame blond, with a cart which is pulled by a brown stallion.

    2) Since they are settlers, as we found out, they are able to travel with the speed 5 fields per hour.

    3)
    They originnaly travelled to Delphi - a city where Apollo oracle seated.
    Random number generator gave us the following numbers:

    21 - ravsya
    23 - travile
    79 - slt43
    111 - Vercingetorix
    158 - lajuve

    Day 3. A forest
    Correct answer is:


    1) Cipher:


    RIHCB = BIRCH
    MEL = ELM
    KOA = OAK
    ERAB = BEAR
    SAH = ASH


    Since only the bear is an animal and all others are trees, that's the one who's waiting for them in the forest.


    2) Settlers share their bread between 3 persons equally, each received 2 and 2/3 of bread.
    So, the settler who had 5 loaves of bread gave to our hero 2 and 1/3 parts.
    The other with 3 loaves gave just 1/3 out of 3.


    Let's say that 1/3 part of bread should cost 1 coin.
    So, the first one should receive 7 coins, the other - 1 coin.

    Random number generator gave us the following numbers:

    6 - Dianna
    26 - Greywind
    49 - Anja
    50 - mtmp
    80 - Jijipop


    Congratulations to the winners! Gold added.

    Day 4. The inn
    Correct answer is:


    Titus is Roman and trades clay.

    Other merchants (just for info)
    Marcus is Gaul and trades iron.
    Brutus is Teuton and trades lumber.

    And again we used Random number generator to get the following results:

    006 - achillies
    058 - Zhearsgu
    061 - Black_Dragon
    093 - lgodX
    113 - brilliantbrain

    Day 5. Crazy village
    Correct answer is:

    1) Gler has 58 prisoners.
    Trapper 7th level can build max 97 traps.
    So, (97 - 10) = 87/1.5 = 58.


    2) Titus has the most prisoners, then Sulla, then Gler and the last one is Fabius.

    And again we asked random number generator to give us numbers and got the following results:

    01 - Frozen Angel
    23 - dredar
    44 - SomeoneSpecial
    66 - Lord Kyrill
    81 - cris@

    Congratulations to the winners of day 5! Gold added.
