Q/average+charge=E? science was never my strong suit...

that average charge fit the clue word of "moderate + task" very well. However, in the previous when a "+" was used the two clue words joined into one word (bolts + man = Boltzmann) so I wasn't sure average charge would be correct.

If it is then they are all E equals equations and we need to determine which is different.

E=hv

E=kT

E=Li2/v

E=q/ ϵ0

E=mgh

E=mv2/2

Energy of a photon

Energy of an atom

Energy of a capacitor

Energy of an electric field

Potential Energy

Kinetic Energy

Have I got those right?

well, a capacitor is the only one of these that has to be man-made. Any one else?

The six dark heads turned simultaneously and twelve glowing green eyes glowered at the diminutive form. “Where...did that come from?” the voices echoed.

Orin frowned. What did they mean? His own gaze trained on the jocund helper. If he was not their creature, then...

Something was attempting to surface in his memory. Something he had seen as a child...a television show...with children trying to solve puzzles...and a rainbow...

After conferring with his capable team, Captain Wraith stepped forward confidently. “Time for this charade to cease. We know who you are...we know which you are...Witch.”

“Green is the color of will and energy,” one agent recited, stepping up behind the captain.

“These clones are created of energy, channeled by will,” said another.

“The real Witch is the the one who controls the chaos...” a third agent chimed in. Then, all said turned in conjunction to one of the figures and spoke in chorus, “...you.”

The Chromatic Witch smiled and waved his green gloved hand and the other five figures vanished. “Not bad...I can see this version has significant improvements...” he shrugged. “But still...just because you can find me doesn’t mean you can defeat me.”

He swept up his arms to the sides, palms upward, and abruptly their surroundings vanished and all around them was a screen of green.

The Witch clapped his hands together and their surroundings turned into a desert canyon. There was a rumbling, and rocks began to precipitate from the jagged cliffs.

The agents scrambled, dodging the barrage of boulders. Their enemy laughed and clapped his hands again.

The dust and debris disappeared, to be replaced by darkness, mud, and roaring rain. Suddenly there was lightning, closely followed by thunder, and then the rain turned to sleet that pelted the freezing agents.

“You cannot win,” the Witch declared. “This is my gateway. Everything is as I will it to be.”

“Not...everything,” spoke Orin slowly through shivering teeth as it came to him. Along A Rainbow, the show had been called, and there had been a helper, a guide to the children...Hucky the Hinter...

The Chromatic Witch stopped and studied him. Orin clenched his hands into fists, fighting the cold.

“The leprechaun...it...it came from me, from my imagination...from my will.” A fire ignited in Orin’s eyes. “If green is the power of will, then...then we use it too!”

The Witch’s lips pursed pensively, then curved into a bemused smile. He clapped his hands once more and the surroundings turned back to green. “Let’s see about that...”

BOSS BATTLE GREEN

Kyle Rayner, Green Lantern

Rules:


Agents, you must channel the energy of your will to form objects to complete the obstacles that are set before you.


Each player may only maintain one object at a time. Objects that commonly come as a set count as one object only if it is utilized as a set (i.e. you cannot use part of a set of colored pencils to draw a diagram and another part to use as kindling).


Objects must be less than 100m in all dimensions, in the state they are used in (i.e. a 300m coil of rope might be less than 100m in all dimensions, but if you use it when it’s fully stretched out, it counts as 300m).


Objects formed must be easily describable with a word or two (i.e. no conjuring complex contraptions constructed to complete the particular task).


You may not create intelligent beings (scientists, superheroes, aliens, etc). You may create animate objects, but you cannot direct, or ‘program’ them. (No animals trained to accomplish your particular task, no programmed robots, etc). However, creatures will be assumed to react to stimuli in the appropriate fashion (a dog will run after/to a steak).


No motorized vehicles (including air, sea, etc). Your interactions with objects are limited to what any average person can do (no specialized training).


There is no one right answer here, tasks will be deemed completed as long as they follow the rules and the spirit of the game (i.e. trying to exploit loopholes in the rules is not acceptable, but combining and using objects in creative and unexpected ways is great ^_^).


Last but not least, this is a team effort, feel free to discuss and coordinate with your teammates. And have fun!

*****************************************************************************************************************************

Feels good to be back in the puzzle-pushing saddle ^_^

(Note: If you've ever played Scribblenauts, it's a similar setup ;))

The last puzzle was not completely solved, and there are some hints in the post to allow players to work on finishing it up while I finish constructing the Boss Battle scenarios. Also feel free to ask questions.

Good luck!

**************************************************************************************************************************

Supplementary rules:

The laws of physics/chemistry/etc. must be obeyed.

Objects that are not known to be physically viable (i.e. hoverboards, jet packs, etc) are not allowed.

Levels must be passed in a reasonable amount of time (in terms of the game).

Please put the objects in green, and if using an object in conjunction with an object(s) from another player or players, please quote or copy and paste and cite the player(s).

**************************************************************************************************************************

Orin furrowed his brows in deep focus. In his hand a small ball of green energy appeared, and then began to grow and elongate until it achieved the form of a spear. He drew his arm back and prepared to launch the missive.

"Not so fast." The Green Witch raised a hand and a sudden burst of translucent green energy flooded towards the agents. As it approached, rolling like a wave, it turned opaque, with globules of different colors interspersed throughout. It gained momentum, coming upon the agents like a tsunami.

The agents closed their eyes, but there was no impact, but instead a sing-song voice quietly chanted: "...went up the hill to fetch a pail of water..." The agents opened their eyes saw the world had been painted around them:

(Not drawn to scale)

Task: Make the Flower of Destiny bloom with water from the Well of Life.

Notes: No harm must come to the Flower of Destiny. It will require at least 1 L of water to make the flower bloom. The icy slope is too slick to climb as is. The mountains are constructed of a hard rock that is impossible to tunnel through in a reasonable amount of time (i.e. before the Witch gets bored and kills everyone ;P).

Giant Motor was found!

Aaryan put the Giant Motor into the KEY pocket.

A simple motor; anyone is capable of building, but on a magnificent scale of 100m.

So that we can work it like a blender, and soften up the ice to make it snow. Probably make it easier to traverse. If this is too mechanical, I wish up a giant blender blade and hope that others put together the motor part (e.g electromagnet, coil of wire, etc.)

Facing the freezing winds, one agent bravely summoned up a pair of pickaxes and scaled the icy mountain side alone.

Another, who had been considering his course of action, summoned up a giant motor to soften up the ice into snow so that the entire team could make it up the hill. They would be needing the team for the next tasks, he knew that much. But the slope was steep, and he, being a man, not a super-man, could not push the motor up the hill by himself. He needed something else. He needed help from his fellow agents.

>>Go up the slope.

>>Create Thin steel cable, 500 m.

>>Create Harpoon gun.

>>Combine Thin steel cable + Harpoon.

>>Shoot Harpoon into the ground near the Well of Life.

EDIT: missed an item to color.

Doesn't work, rope needs to be less than 100m. Also, one item at a time.

:facepalm: woops....

>>Create Harpoon gun

and then creating multiple ropes and combining them in a set of steps might work...

Good thinking ahead, but remember you need an item to help push Agent Aaryan's motor up the slope before the team can move up the slope :).

Well, when I thought of motor, I meant a literal motor like blender blades, on a HUGE scale. How would you pull the sled up, is my question?

I was thinking more of causing the motors to spin and turn the ice into snow.

create Giant Motor that mirrors Aaryan's design , then use it to turn the hill to slush from my position atop the hill. Then, destroy Giant Motor and create Hang Glider to go to Well of Life.

...In which case, replace the Giant Motor with a River of Hot Water which falls down the slope, melting the ice. after that is done, continue using hang glider as before.

Panting heavily from the exertion of climbing up the long slope, Agent Flamebirde glanced back at his companions, where were attempting to push a heavy motor up a hill. Agent ShadowAngel had come up with a clever idea, but before she and Agent Aaryan could work out how to implement it, an idea came to Flamebirde. He held out his picks and let them dematerialize back into energy, and he used that energy to construct a Giant Motor that mirrored Agent Aaryan's. Then, utilizing gravity and the slickness of the slope itself, he was easily able to turn up the ice and make the hill traverseable, albeit with care.

Great ideas, all! You can still work on the electric motor idea, if you wish, but you have sufficed to get past the first part! :)

Agent flamebirde glided smoothly to the Well of Life with the aid of a high-end hanglider.

Agent Vistapb joined him (with his own hanglider?) and came up with a very and fun clever idea. He summoned up a giant water gun and attempted to shoot the water at the flower (?). However, after doing some research via neurolink, the agents discovered that a water gun with the capacity to shoot a stream 400 ft high and 200 ft horizontally had not been known to be physically viable. Perhaps they could construct their own? Or use it in a different manner?

What if we had a hot air balloon so we could shoot the water 200 feet horizontally and 0 feet vertically?
