Hello,

Spoiler (click to reveal)
When you face the gear puzzle in the guardhouse, the green and blue wheels are not in a one-to-one connection with the system. One quarter of a turn of such a wheel induces much more than a quarter of a turn of the arrow...

I feel that the solution suggests that they move with equal motion.


Am I wrong here?

a portable convector of the type shown on Item 20 does not work on agents who are wet, much less underwater.

Should be equal motion.

Yes but the rotating parts don't have the same size... Like on a bicycle, you don't turn your legs as many times as your wheels... This feels odd to me. Am I the only one frustrated by this puzzle?

The text of the guardroom card states that one turn of each lever corresponds to one turn of the central gear.

It may say that, but that is not how the mechanics work. Of course you could just suspend your disbelief and assume that gear ratios don't matter in Algueria, but I still think it is bad design.

This confused me too.

I really liked this kind of puzzle, but not that this wasn't taken into account. With the three given solutions you could still figure it out, but I would have liked it to be more realistic.
