My colour-blind friend and I play in the same Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Our party had just died in a horrendously managed battle against a dracolisk (seriously, don't ask!) and so we were back to rolling up new characters before the next session.
After much internal debate, I finally decided to play an elven cleric who is 'totally about fashion' and would attempt to purchase new clothing in each town we would pass through. For once, I wanted her to have a name she could wear with pride (my late halfling bard, Squoggle, had never been taken seriously!)
Since I am so terrible at naming, I sent my friend a text for help with a name. Some time later, instead of an answer, I ended up receiving the following image:
What does my friend think I should name my character?
As a bonus, what job do you think my friend has?
Note / Hint:
This puzzle is in homage to my friend who is colour-blind and actually could solve it with only what you have above.
Apologies if you think this is a terrible puzzle... constructive feedback is appreciated. :)
Why would anyone add coloured squares to an image?
My friend finds naming things even more useful than I do.
There is another applicable tag for this puzzle that I haven't added. I am sure it will become obvious when that step is in front of you!
Purists may think (as do I) that the last step doesn’t really deserve the missing tag... but the puzzle and the story bring their own lenses on what is left to solve.
The final step contains three different ways to get the same answer.
