Re: Out of Character Chat
A note on the map: obviously there are other places in the city besides those marked on the map but those are 'points of interest' for you to check out first.

You are actually staying in the luxurious Golden Tower inn off the Market Square - not labled on the map but just beneath the 'Square of Patriarchs' label. The Parrot in a Cage Inn on the other hand is a bit of a notorious dive.

Re: Out of Character Chat
To summarise our riddling...

quote:
What am I?

A white-winged fish that parts the waves
I ply the sparkling waste.
I'm bound by ropes, and pulled by cloth,
Lest merchants lose their haste.

Where am I?

My first is in south but not in north;
My second is in picture but not in play;
My third is in fourth and also in worth;
My fourth is in book and also in cook;
My fifth is in toe but not in sew;
My sixth is in life but not in death;
And together I'm found where children abound.


Do we agree this refers to the nautical academy?  We're looking for a ship at the nautical academy.

quote:
What am I?

My belly is round
And bound with iron bonds;
What I carry always raises a cheer.
Murder have I not done;
Stolen not; cheated not;
Yet a peg is beaten into my head

Where am I?

My coat is green and I can speak
Of several things, but mostly cheek.
In such a prison I am set
That has more loopholes than a net.


A beer barrel at the parrot in a cage inn.

quote:
What am I?

I've neither top nor bottom,
Yet I hold bone and skin;
I hardly ever make a noise,
And yet my name's a din.

Where am I?

Ill-matched is my visage to my frame -
Horns are on my head, the rest a hideous man;
By fume well known through all the Allansian lands;
From man and beast together is my name.


The "what" is a coffin, but I don't think anybody's suggested the "where" yet.  Does anybody have any ideas?

RossN, if you want, you can upload the map in the "Game Map" tool...

Re: Out of Character Chat
could the beast in the last riddle be a head stone (as I suggested a while ago ) it could be a beast of someones coat of arms that was then used as a head stone over their grave or even on their crypt?

Re: Out of Character Chat
Hmmm.  That works (especially as we think the "what" is a coffin), but I'm not sure about the last line.

To me it sounded like a certain type of monster, like a minotaur (although I'm not sure about the fume, nor that everything about a minotaur save the horns is a "hideous man").  Is it possibly some other kind of monster native to the FF world?

Re: Out of Character Chat
Okay since I kind of want to get things going IC I'll give you guys a hint: visit the Market Square. If you are going to hear rumors that is the place to be and is in any case right next to your inn (and the Tower in case you want to go back there for any reason.)

In reply to Tarrian (msg # 155):

Happy with the guesses so far, not a clue on the last one. Suggest we ask someone IC. Maybe a priest or other learned fellow?

Maybe we can start gathering one object or two that we are more sure of...?

Re: Out of Character Chat
I added a map of Kallamehr to the Game Map. It is a fan made version of the one posted in the great thread and might be slightly clearer.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Okay I started us off, even though my character is an illiterate barbarian peasant girl with no concept of literary riddles.  As usual in a group of four men and one girl if you want to make something happen you have to wait for the girl to do it.  :P

Re: Out of Character Chat
2 things:

I assume Lady Carolina's player is also playing the handmaiden.

The shield. Who wants it? My vote would be that Tarrian takes it as she is the warrior of the party. I am happy to have it but it doesn't really fit my image...

Re: Out of Character Chat
I agree that should go to the character that can use it most effectively.

Re: Out of Character Chat
It is. :)

Most of the illustrations I'm using are from The Riddling Reaver but I'll be using a few others that seem appropriate.

Okay unless anyone wants to take the shield I'll assume you guys are moving on.

I think the plan is to grab it on the way out of town.
