My sincerest apologies; suffice it to say that the last month provided me with enough material to make several Torment posts, should I ever bother to share them. I have some puzzles already prepared, am working on another, and also have a number of story ideas roaming around in my mind; I'm hoping to start posting here again in force, "catching up" as it were.
Puzzle 30 is rapidly approaching, and as previously threatened I intend to make a BIG puzzle to occupy that spot - BIG on challenge and BIG on size. However, I really have no preference as to which puzzle design I employ, and so I am once again soliciting comments suggesting which I should use. I did Polyominous last time, but any other type I've presented so far is fair game. Here's a quick cheat-sheet of those:
Islands in the Stream
The One Ring
To Each Their Own
This is an informal poll; vote for as many or as few as you like, and feel free to weight your votes as you wish. I will not necessarily bind myself to the results, but I will take them under advisement. I will likely make my choice and start work on the puzzle next Monday. - ZM
