The Riddlemasters Three


The three former prophets, originators and purveyors of the age-old riddle contest are as follows:


Torn Rope, ‘The Frayed One’


Torn Rope got his moniker from the noose and torn rope-end, which he always wears about his neck. No one knows his original name, but it is said he was once, long ago, a common thief who was about to be hanged for his crimes, when the rope he was suspended from, suddenly frayed and shredded, allowing him to escape the gallows. It is further said that at that moment when he tumbled to his freedom, Torn Rope was siezed by a sudden, unexplained bolt of wisdom and enlightenment, which allowed him to become what he is today, an encyclopdeic fountain of knowledge. Yet his mind is as frayed as the rope on his neck.


Ischta Gorbinsaw


Originally a university scholar, hailing from the cloying and scholarly kingdom of Hedwyg, Ischta was old when the moutains were young. At least that is what they say about him, "they" being theose who don't know. In fact nothing is known about Ischta, except that he is wise and he is mad. When not engaged in riddle-asking, Ischta can be found slurping salt-water at the shoreline, on all fours, or engaging rocks in conversation.


Tortle the Multiplyer of Unwit


A man sporting the head of a rabbit, due to some long-forgotten curse, Tortle hails from the Drying Lands, a country of cracked earth, and some say, a cracked populace. Quite thoroughly, but subtly mad, like his peers, Tortle suffers from indescribable psychoses and quirks, his mental faculties "alien" at best. Originally hailed as a lone prophet, Tortle traveled far from his own lands in search of wisdom, and thus came upon the pair, who became his lifelong friends and companions. Tortle's greatest fear is witnessing sunsets and sunrises. He avoids both events at all costs.


 


Note: If anyone can think of appropriate riddles, riddles that omniscient madmen might ask during an ultimate riddle contest, please do post them as scrolls!

Rather than celestial constellations, there are sigils and glyphs that the five moons form, each moon forming a point or specific position within the symbol. Go to Comment

Huh? If you're asking what I think you're aksing, then it is a thousand score years not a thousand, so twenty thousand years. And what is meant there is that for a god, it is not such a long time.

The love story is sweet and the way you interweave this background story into how the world could interact with Daazan and Utheleii is nice. Go to Comment
