# An Ailing Assassin

Since moving to the countryside, I've taken up a side job as an assassin. While camping out with a doctor, they told me that I had contracted an illness. However, since I didn't take any money with me, they handed me this puzzle instead:

They told me, "Solve the nonogram, and you'll know where you're ill!"

Can you identify where I'm ill?

This puzzle can be solved without guessing. Note that cells filled with different colours do not necessarily need to have a gap between them. Clued colors are indicated by the background color of the text.

• Also with hard lines, for solving convenience. – Avi Dec 12 '19 at 17:57
• Nice formatting, by the way ;-) – Stiv Dec 13 '19 at 23:00

From Somebody's completed nonogram grid, we can see

an $$X_2^{-},$$ which could represent an ion, underneath what appears to be a tent.

Therefore,

the rebus can be interpreted as "in tent, ion," or intention. And this answers the question because an assassin would definitely have ill intentions.

• Well done, and nice catch :) – Avi Dec 13 '19 at 1:33
• Nice catch! I saw what you saw but didn't have the rebus solve. – Somebody Dec 13 '19 at 14:33

Here is what I have as a completed nonogram. I don't think I've missed anything. I'm not yet sure where to go from here but it's a start!

• Congrats on getting the first step! You may want to check the tags of a puzzle to see the components to solving the puzzle. P.S.: Columns 41/42 need a little fixing – Avi Dec 12 '19 at 21:30
• I think I got the solution, hope it's OK that I posted it as a separate answer :) – HTM Dec 12 '19 at 23:13
• @Avi d'oh! should be fixed now! – Somebody Dec 13 '19 at 14:35
• @Somebody Looks good now; I hope you enjoyed the puzzle :) – Avi Dec 13 '19 at 14:36
