The Great Sage's Riddle

Skål, Jarls!


They say that all famous strategists have developed logical thinking. The Great Sage wanted to test the Jarls of the North and prepared a riddle for them. 98% of those asked couldn't solve it in their head. 


Will you be able to solve it? 


During Battle for the Throne, five Jarls from different Kingdoms placed their Towns in a line. All five have different levels of Towns, train five different troop types, use five different Aesir, upgrade five different single resources, and have five different Shamans. 


Here's what we know: 


1. The Jarl with Shaman Baggi has come from Kingdom 1. 

2. The Jarl with Shaman Stieg has a level 26 Town. 

3. The level 23 Town stands to the left of the level 29 Town. 

4. The Jarl with Shaman Elsa trains siege troops. 

5. The Jarl who upgrades Stone has placed their Town next to the Jarl who uses Aes Skadi. 

6. The Jarl with the level 21 Town upgrades Food. 

7. The Jarl with Shaman Inga upgrades Iron. 

8. The Jarl in the middle uses killers. 

9. The neighbor of the Jarl who upgrades Stone uses ranged troops. 

10. The Jarl who upgrades Lumber uses Aes Ullr. 

11. The Jarl with Shaman Ulf uses Aes Forseti. 

12. The Jarl with Shaman Baggi stands next to the level 30 Town. 

13. The Jarl that uses Aes Vidar has a level 30 Town. 

14. The Jarl who upgrades Silver uses cavalry. 

15. The Jarl from the level 23 Town trains melee. 


Question: Which Kingdom does the Jarl who uses the Aes Váli come from? 


Note: game bonuses of Shamans, Aesir, and troops are not important and are not linked to the terms of this riddle.

Interesting ...maybe we should pm you the answer ... but those towns they should have their shaman be for the troops they train (yes I see the disclaimer that they aren't linked) ... lol ... and I see now we can't pm you ... so guess I will just hold off on posting the answer and let others have their fun ...

You could paste the link with the screenshot illustrating the solution in it, so others could open it if they want to know the answer or chose the way to find the solution by themselves :) And thank you for taking care of other participants! That's really great!

Hello! You could post your solution right here, but the better way will paste it like a link with the screenshot to give to other players find the solution by themselves!

And we draw your attention to the fact that there is no reward for solving the test, besides knowing who are the Smartest Jarls in the North

I’m sure it’s quite simple, but I can’t figure out how to PM someone. Just like I can’t figure out how to turn a screenshot into a link. I’m dying to compare my answer with someone so I can feel smart for 5 seconds. 😁

You hit the send message under the person's information to the left.

Hint.... Killers = Våli = In the middle = Kingdom 3, well that took about the 10 sec it took to read down to Hint 8 :P

Assuming that I am right that is :P
First you win, then you go to war.

Cim thanks for the PM instructions. I think we might use different platforms I use an iPhone for this forum. I don’t seem to be able to click on anybody’s information. Well if we ever get another riddle challenge (one can hope) i’ll pull out my laptop. 😊
