2019 Puzzle Hunt Puzzles

The theme for the 2019 Puzzle Hunt was “Heroes of Konia“. Participants, otherwise known this year as “Heroes”, searched for ten puzzles around the RBC Convention Centre. Each puzzle was based on a specific RPG character class, and Heroes were tasked on recruiting each character class for their party to defeat Aragrim, the leader of the Dneadu (which, when anagrammed, spells “Undead”), who is threatening the Kingdom of Konia (anagrams to “Ai-Kon”). The winner of the Puzzle Hunt, known as the “One True Hero” of Konia, received a handsome prize package which included a Bag of Holding with loot and free passes to Winterfest and Ai-Kon 2020.

Each Hero was given a Tome of Knowledge to help them solve some of the puzzles. This Tome can be found here.
