101 all new riddles! J.R.R. Tolkien's book "The Hobbit" had riddles. The "Princess Bride" had riddles. Even Monty Python's "Quest for the Holy Grail" spoofed riddles. They are an entertaining and educational way to pass the time. They are great for parties, barbecues, family get-togethers, and campouts.

As far as role-playing is concerned, this book is designed for Game Masters who wish to challenge their characters minds as well as swords. Many monsters love to ask and answer riddles. (Especially dragons.) NPCs may ask riddles to test an adventurer's worthiness. Magic doors and chests may offer riddles as a way to grant access and/or avoid traps. The possibilities are endless.

Riddles in this book vary in difficulty from very easy to fairly difficult. Most riddles are in singsong rhyme similar to that used by Tolkien in his book "The Hobbit." All riddles in this book refer only to subjects found in typical medieval/fantasy realms and are suitable for thinkers of all ages. This book specifically includes subjects such as mythological monsters, animals, gods, and magic items, as well as some abstract notions and/or mundane medieval items that a fantasy-style bard might pick as a subject for a riddle.

As a special bonus, this book includes a bardic test. Would you make a good bard, and/or problem solver? Take the test and find out. Depending on the number of riddles you answer correctly you may rank any where between animal intelligence/orcish bard to master bard, or even become "The Riddle Master," most people will fall some where inbetween. A few examples of all new riddles listed below:

 One on one and two against two, they battle until they be through. Each a point they want to make, they fight on without much break

Two a foot, yet eight on ground, rolling thunder the only sound. Two braced where they may sit, always ready for the final hit.

What are we?

 

I can flood great rivers with my tears, my sorrow marks the passage of years. Yet the ideal mother and perfect wife, *my domain is magic, nature and life.

Born from the union of earth and sky, protector of people, but after they die.

 

Who am I?

 

A bearded man some may see, before they get a closer look at me. I have three rows of wicked teeth, on flesh and bone I like to feast.

My voice a trumpet for all to hear, my lion's claws strike great fear. I may have horns or maybe wings, depends upon the bard that sings.

The size of lion or perhaps a horse, I devour all in just one course. My greatest weapon is my tail, a missile launcher and a flail.

What am I?

Sorry, you will need to buy this book to find out the answers.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
