The winners have been chosen!

This was a fun contest and it took a lot to make a challenging riddle. On top of that, many of them were funny or silly. Almost all stayed in the Illy theme (we had to turn away a few that did not) and we would have loved to give out an award for each person who submitted on.

Enough of that, let's get to the 3 winners.

In no particular order, here are our favorites:


Artefore's riddle:


So quickly I grow, 
in the dark of the moon,
the wise lord does know,
that I grant him a boon.

I feed a great tree,
hearty and strong,
green leaves growing free,
to help you along.  

Inscribed in the fame
of kings and of princes,
can you guess what my name
from all these hints is?

Answer: Research Points!



Willd Elf's: 

What is white pink an yellow , shines by light, but not by nite?

Answer: Rainbow Stone



Riddle 2 from TheBillPN: 

A lonely sentinel,
rising above the land,
the last full reminder,
second to none,
with one broken brother,
and no other family.

Answer: Omen [The Tower]




Thanks to all of the entries and winners! I will distribute the prizes right away!

So, you fancy yourself a riddler, huh? Think that you can come up with the best riddle Illy players have ever heard?

So, let's do it!

Come up with an Illy-themed riddle and you could win 75 prestige!

We'll pick 3 winners. 

Here's how it will work: come up with a riddle and answer, and post the riddle here, in this thread. Keep the answer out of it ... send the answer to my profile (GM Rikoo) in an in-game-message and I will later post the answers in a separate thread so players can read the riddles without spoilers. If they want to test themselves they can go to the answer thread and see what it was.

There are a few rules, of course:

1 - The riddle has to be Illy-themed. While you MIGHT get away with copying some other riddle that you have heard and adapting it to Illy, that will probably not work. We want Illy-specific riddles... riddles that are connected to Illy content, creatures, lore, etc.

2 - They have to be (mostly) family-friendly. You can discuss combat, killing, etc, just don't get explicit. If you could see it in Lord of the Rings, you can probably post it here.

3 - Each entry must be posted without answers. Send the answers to GM Rikoo in an IGM. I will later post it in a separate post so players can "play" without knowing the answers until later. 

4 - All entries must be posted to this thread by 23:59 server time on the 8th of May.

We will pick out 3 winners and each will get 75 prestige and will also get to clean the mammoth stalls for one month! The winners will also get a special medal that was handcrafted by the greatest smith in all of the kingdoms… Rikoo’s assistant! (He’s still learning but he’s become much more skilled lately.)

If you have any questions, let me know by sending me an in-game-mail. (Try to avoid PMs on the forums, I often miss them!)

What hunts and travels in a pack, and has a stronger sense that you?

listless, latent and listening
and you'd never know, though you do
unboughed i'd be
 if ever you were to see me
but i am not worried
for though i am storied
i've already leaved before i've left

Whispers in your mind
Binds your limbs
Time won't pass it by
Feared by nothing
All to be feared
What is sleeping, but wakes

Don't be like a record, stuck in a groove,
or it'll come for you.
Don't annoy the great green one,
or it'll come for you.
And certainly speak no curses,
or it'll come for you.
