Is there an error on the "wind" riddle in Sunken Ziggurat, area 3.13?

It is pointed out, that the correct answer for north wind is moderate, cold.

IMO this is contradictory to table 1, " a strong wind is greater than a moderate wind" and table 2 " the cold wind is least".

Am I wrong? Somebody an idea?

Is there anyone who played Sunken Ziggurat and whose players solved the riddle?

Happy about every comment.

I have the module, but confess I haven't read it yet...

I'm sure someone will come to the rescue on this one before long....

I checked the logic puzzle, it is correct.

Tablet 2:
“A cold wind is least, a mild wind more and the warm wind is the greatest.”
Means cold < mild < warm, nothing directly to do with tablet 1:
“A strong wind is greater than a moderate wind while the weak wind is lesser than either of them.”
Means Strong > Moderate > Weak.

Tablet 3: “A steady wind is greater than either a changing or gusty wind while the changing wind is greater than the gusty.” means Steady > changing > gusty.

Tablet 4: “The strongest wind is neither the warmest nor the coolest.” Strong = mild

Tablet 5: “The changing wind is of extreme temperature.” Changing = warm OR cold but not mild, therefore changing <> strong

Tablet 6: “The weak wind is not the changing wind.” Changing <> weak, and from 5 changing <> strong therefore changing = moderate.

Tablet 7: “The steady wind is the strongest wind.” Steady = strong; from 4: steady = strong = mild. Since steady = strong and changing = moderate, gusting must = weak.

Tablet 8: “The mild wind does not gust.” we already knew that from 7

Tablet 9: “The gusty wind does not blow cold.” cold <> gusty. Since steady = mild (7) and gusty <> cold, gusty= warm and changing =cold.

Therefore, steady =strong =mild,
changing = cold= moderate,
gusty=warm = weak.
