    I think I answered this in my opening post pretty well. Basically I'll actually be putting these up probably once a week on average. I think from now on I'm going to make it my goal to post one every Thursday.

    I'm fine with others creating puzzles, and welcome it. However, I request that if you want to put up your own, make your own thread, or run it past me and I'll give you permission to post the puzzle of the week, and I'll just link to it. I want to ensure this thread is a repository of high quality puzzles, and would like to avoid spamming a bunch. (I'd also like to avoid people possibly putting up a puzzle very similar to one I've already made, but am just waiting to publish. I do try and work ahead of schedule sometimes)

    By all means, please do.

    Even better, have me on the podcast to explain them! (Wink wink)

    There's rumors flying around to that joepinion offered to put them on the front page and allow Ranior to post the weekly updates there, but who knows if the sources can be trusted...

    Love this Ranior. Unfortunately I am turrible at puzzles but SW isn't a game to me. It is a WAR! with SUMMONING! Anyways, great thread, I' think i am getting there with my answer. These puzzles are definitly most interesting with factions starting with the Cloaks/Jungle Elves.

    Yeah. I'm starting to realize this puzzle wasn't as good as I was hoping, as there is more controversy about the answer than I would have thought.

    I'll be avoiding that in the future. I'm realizing that there are a lot of other good ones I can work with the SG anyhow. And the JE, CL, SE, FL, MR, and even some with the PE and FK. I'll have plenty of material to go for awhile.

    Don't be too hard on yourself, i said I'm getting closer to an answer. I don't think I'm quite there though. Again, terrible at puzzles.

    I personally think all those but PE are a good choice. Insta-wounds would make the puzzles a bit easier to solve. I think VG might be a better alternative, given the importance of unit placement with them. MV might also make for fun puzzles with their events and Brutes.

    The factions i think would be worse for puzzles would be CG, GD, and TO. Those are all fairly straight foward in their playstyle.

    I'm submitting a Cave Goblin puzzle once I get home.
    The night's shadow exists, not sleeping at all,
    The toil of the light is its only call,
    Behind the scenes lurking with shadowy gall,
    Its face never showing; height never too tall.

    Without a cry wherein dissent finds respite,
    The multitudes safer in the billowing light,
    More likely than not to strike evil at night,
    Then silently vanishing to be out of sight.

    You have 9 magic in your pile, and it can be done with that.

    As for answers, PM me if you want to confirm you are correct, else the solution to this one will go up when I post the next puzzle.

    Please don't post the actual answer here, as I know individuals who like puzzles (like myself) frown upon people who just throw out the answer. Thanks!
