No worries, inspector: you used the Add an Idea button correctly. You don't have to contact omegadraco to add them to the sub, they're now as much a part of it as the rest. Go to Comment

Thanks for sending me a copy via PM Omega.

A nice set of riddles to fit well into a campaign. As Silveressa has already mentioned; these would be fun to throw at your party's Wizard ;-)

Update: I started this with 10 simple riddles from an old video game, and I'm running out of steam to finish it. Any suggestions? I will give contribution credit to anyone who significantly helps. If you don't want to post the answer to your riddle in the open, you can send me a PM, and I will post it the same way I did the others. Go to Comment

Mega thanks to Moonlake for finding a link to a ton of inspiring riddles. The first 10 are from Warlords Battlecry 2. The last 13 are inspired and modified from the link Moonlake found.

These riddles are not intended to be complicated. My players like coming across the occasional riddle-spewer, but they don't like waiting when the riddles are so hard that only one person could possibly figure it out. Go to Comment

I don't know how to send you (Omega) a "PM" message. Maybe I could just e-mail you. Go to Comment

Each morning I appear

to lie at your feet,

All day I follow

Yet I nearly perish

in the midday sun.

Please add this to your list (a variation of #29):

I am seen in the water

If seen in the sky,

I am in the rainbow,

A jay's feather,

and lapis lazuli.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
