The Riddle Thread
(Indirect Publications)

Hey solvers and non-solvers!

The Napoleonic Era Team invites you to a new sensation, the indirect publication! - of our work. We thought that just telling you what we want/would/will do is an old and boring method of information. Of course, we will not stop posting enunciated news, but these questions solutions in this thread contain extra news, secrets we allow you to know.

In indefinite intervals we'll post riddles in any way. Of course, if many previous riddles were not solved, you won't get many new ones until the day you solved most of the old ones. So, more right solutions may mean more riddles and more riddles mean more hidden extra information! Right? No questions? Fine!

Eligible is everyone who has no access to NE Team Forums.
