Sort of appropriately enough, the winner of this week’s puzzle is some guy (or gal) named Link, who battled off his thirst and answered wisely enough to win a $50 gift certificate from ThinkGeek. Congratulations, Link, and thanks to everyone who entered!
The slave traders and pirates who drank at the bar in Skullport weren’t picky about the rotgut they drank, but the party in the corner was. Behind the bar were four flavors of Jones soda reserved for their consumption only. The bottles were set in a row from left to right, numbered one through four with bottle #1 being on the left. Can you identify the flavor of each bottle, the person who it was for and his or her class?
1. The bottle of Potion of Healing was placed immediately to the right of the one reserved for Otiorin Spelloyal the Farmer, who was not the Paladin.
2. The bottle of Sneak Attack was kept for Lady Carkain Destinaxe Hero Rising, who had recently arrived in Skullport from Daggerford.
3. Bottle 4 was filled with Eldritch Blast
4. The bottle reserved for Victamorel Foechuckle the Swordsmith, the Barbarian, who had an inexplicable fear of beholders, was in an even-numbered position.
5.The bottle for the Ranger was somewhere left of the Illithid Brain Juice.
Flavors: Sneak Attack, Potion of Healing, Eldritch Blast, Illithid Brain Juice
Names: Davamros Beestinger the Dungsweeper, Otiorin Spelloyal the Farmer, Lady Carkain Destinaxe Hero Rising, Victamorel Foechuckle the Swordsmith
