SpoilerBased on 3 and 8, the black queen has to be in one of the bottom 2 rows. There are 2 white rooks. One is in a column by itself (15). The other is south of the knight (1) and north of the black rook. That means the knight has to be at least the 3rd row from the bottom so that doesn't work with being directly across from the queen.

That's quite possible, but from my interpretation, without any mention of the same row, the end refers to the whole side of the board. I will try it that way though!

Ok. Can you tell me which of the clues my answer violates?

Seems like there could be multiple answers from my interpretation of the clues.
SpoilerKnight A3
White Rooks A2, B1
Black Rook A1
White Pawns D6, G3
Black Pawn D5
White King F3
Black King D2
White Queen G4
Black Queen H2
Bishop G1

Think I figured out my problem. What is the definition of adjacent? Sharing edges? Diagonal squares?

If the black queen is on the extreme east per clue 8 (N,S,W spaces adjacent), and alone in her column per clue 12, that leaves only the W space to put both the pawn and bishop mentioned in clue 8. Should it maybe read the queen is alone in her own row?

6 and 16 also seem to contradict as d5 is a white space according to the pictures I'm finding of notation.

For number 8, does that mean the black queen is on the opposite EW extreme or just opposite half? Or can it potentially refer to NS? Number 12 would seem to contradict that if it means the EW extreme.

Assuming coming of age means 18...
15 and 21. Original ages are 3,6, and 9.

It looks like you're taking the first letter and essentially rotating it through the different positions while the other letters remain in the same order. I noticed that all the possible permutations begin with two letters that were next to each other in the original sequence (or in the first and last spot). For example, I don't think you can get a sequence starting with AC. So this does not seem to hold up.

This seems like a trick somehow but I'm going to go with...
75?

Unless the sender said something, it might just be random letters to make the ornament shape.

If the X at the origin is indicating a dimension, does that mean the dimension comes straight at the screen? If that's the case, it looks like the arrow is missing. Unless it's hiding in the origin dot.

Still not sure how that would be represented here. I assume what's shown is X, Y, and Z despite all being labeled X...

Not sure why all the axes are labeled X along with the origin. The painting seems to be called "4th Dimension." No clue how you'd represent that but I'm not seeing that in the picture.

4 Seasons in a Year = 4 Sides on a Square = 4 F. on M.R.
6 Feet in a Fathom = 6 P. on a P.T. = 6 O. in a B.I.
8 Arms on an Octopus = 8 K.H. of E. = 8 Pints in a Gallon
10 P. in a B.A. = 10 Years in a Decade = 10 Little Indians
12 Inches in a Foot = 12 Signs of the Zodiac = 12 F. on a D.

Not sure about steel but a pencil?

a pen?

I would say 3. The base has 2 green sides. 3 is the only one like that. You can also look at each of the angles of the triangles.

Full solution:
Given A+B+C, the first two digits are the product of AB. The next two digits are the product of AC. The last two digits are AB+ACB.
For D+E+F, the last two digits are DE+DF+A.
A=6
B=2
C=5
D=5
E=6
F=7

A start:
Given A+B+C, the first two digits are the product of AB. The next two digits are the product of AC. Still working on the last two digits.

Ooh. Another language. Never would have gotten that. Nice puzzle.

Is Ed's interpretation of 8 correct?
