Okay, this riddle is slightly different, you have to ask me questions about it, to find out what happeded? see? okay, here goes. One man gives a poor man some money, the poor man gives the man
(50827779)'Raina' hands it to the man.
(730844539)'Fir': Hmm... You are are the great chief I have been told about perhaps?
(50827779)'Raina': No that would be miss Jaelle.
(730844539)'Fir': Yes. Thank you. It was mine.
Tavis Bluegale: An arm. The man looks the arm over, satisfied, he puts it in a bag and has it delivered to a second man. The second man takes the arm out, looks over it and, once satisfied, puts it back in the bag
(730844539)'Fir': I see.
(50827779)'Raina' offers the man a smile.
(50827779)'Raina' starts to work.
Tavis Bluegale: and sends the bag to a third man. The third man looks over the arm, and once satisfied, throws away the arm. Okay, start asking.
Tavis Bluegale: By the way, everyone should participate, it is a rather hard riddle.
(206083864)'Celdea': What is the question?
(50827779)'Raina': Though if I have time I maye able to cook you something.
(526771495)'Sasha': The arm was rotten once it reached the third man which cause him to throw away the arm?
Tavis Bluegale: Incorrect Sasha.
Tavis Bluegale: I just explained the uestion Celdea..
Tavis Bluegale: *question
(526771495)'Sasha': Why would the man give him an arm anyways?
Xarek Bandargo: The arm belonged to his arch enemy, and in disgust he threw it away
(206083864)'Celdea': No, you told us a story, but not what to find out.
Tavis Bluegale: That is one of the things you are trying to figure out Sasha.
Tavis Bluegale sighs
Tavis Bluegale: You must find out why the men have the arm, and why they hand it around.
Tavis Bluegale: And no, that is incorrect Xarek.
(50827779)'Raina' starts to work.
Tavis Bluegale: By the way, you are trying to build up the story you see, you do not just ask me about the ending, you should ask minute details. For example, did all four men know each other? to wich i would say
Tavis Bluegale: No, only 3 of them do. See?
(206083864)'Celdea': May the 'arm' is a etapher for workers, or help. When all is done, it comes to the third. Once he is satisfied, he dont needs the helpers anymore, so he kick them out.
(50827779)'Raina': Exuse me a moment while I get a few things from the depot.
(50827779)'Raina' stands up moving to the depot.
(2028851430)'Jerem' looks to the man on the right side of Sasha
Tavis Bluegale shakes his head, "The arm is literally an arm."
(730844539)'Fir' turns a bit towards the elf watching him. The hood hides the eyes though and it is not possible to see if he looks back.
(206083864)'Celdea': So..what kind of arm? A arm of a living beeing? Or a crafted arm?
(2028851430)'Jerem': hm ...
(2028851430)'Jerem' looks into the fire
(730844539)'Fir' take a piece of a smoked fish from his bag and takes a bite.
(206083864)'Celdea' looks to Tavis askingly
(2028851430)'Jerem': mages and their games .....
(206083864)'Celdea': Thats a riddle Jerem, no mage game..
Tavis Bluegale: A human arm, cut off of a human.
Xarek Bandargo: ...
(206083864)'Celdea': Of what professions was the men?
Tavis Bluegale crosses his arm.
(2028851430)'Jerem': mage? ...*grins*
Tavis Bluegale: The three men who got the arm were soldiers, the man who gave the arm was a begger.
(730844539)'Fir': Did the arm belong to a fallen comrade of the soldiers?
Tavis Bluegale: It did not.
(206083864)'Celdea': Poor beggar. They beggar did ask one of them for money. Like soldiers are, they killed hm, cut off the arm and showed it to his collegues as trophy. As it was by the third man, he dont know what to...
Tavis Bluegale: The arm bellonged to the begger.
(206083864)'Celdea': ..do with it and he threw it away.
(206083864)'Celdea': *The beggar
Tavis Bluegale shakes his head at Celdea.
Tavis Bluegale: You got some of it right, the Begger asked for money, the first man made a deal "Give me your arm and i will give you 20 silver." and so it happened.
Xarek Bandargo: Is it the same hand on and on...?
Tavis Bluegale: Aye, the same hand, the same arm.
Xarek Bandargo: One of the soldier's superiors confiscated it...and then the superior's superior did so and finally threw it away...?
(730844539)'Fir' hear the sound of the flies and jumps up with impressive speed and starts to kill the aggressive flies.
Tavis Bluegale shakes his head "The first man voluntarily sent the arm to the second man, the second man voluntarily sent the arm to the third man."
Tavis Bluegale: hm.. another hint, they are now retired.
Xarek Bandargo: Did they use the hand to scratch their backs...?
Xarek Bandargo grins
Tavis Bluegale: The first one used the hand to scratch his back in a metaphorical manner.
Tavis Bluegale: In other words, some how the hand helped him.
Xarek Bandargo: Ah
Xarek Bandargo: His superior sent him to kill someone...?
Xarek Bandargo: And bring the hand as proof
(206083864)'Celdea': Heh..they killed eat other..
Tavis Bluegale shakes his head "All three man were in the same squad, non of them were supperior to another." "and no Celdea, they threw the arm away, so they were not cannibles."
Tavis Bluegale smiles and taps his fingers together.
(730844539)'Fir': Was the arm made of something else than flesh and bone?
(206083864)'Celdea': Was a ring at the finger of the hand?
(730844539)'Fir': Like a wood arm or something I mean.
Tavis Bluegale: The hand was made of only flesh and bone, there was a ring on the hand, yes.
(206083864)'Celdea': Has the 'beggar' a man in secret mission?
(206083864)'Celdea': Or he wasnt a real beggar, just had clorh like it?
Tavis Bluegale: No, he was truly a begger.
Xarek Bandargo: Does the ring have any relevance?
Tavis Bluegale: Yes.
Xarek Bandargo: Hmm
Tavis Bluegale: It was not a magic ring of any sort, but it had a unique design.
(206083864)'Celdea': Ws the ring swaped with something...like the emblem of the kings court?
Xarek Bandargo: I know
Xarek Bandargo: They wanted the ring
Xarek Bandargo: And the first 2 soldiers couldnt get it off
Xarek Bandargo: The third managed to get it and threw the arm away
Tavis Bluegale: In correct. Here is another hint. The first soldier put the ring on the hand.
Tavis Bluegale: *incorrect
Xarek Bandargo: What did the second soldier do with it before handing it to the third?
(206083864)'Celdea': The searched for a victim?
Tavis Bluegale: The second soldier simply looked at it.
Tavis Bluegale: They searched for no-one.
Xarek Bandargo: Did the third remove the ring before throwing it away?
Tavis Bluegale shakes his head.
(206083864)'Celdea': Back to my question, was the ring swaped with like the emblem of the kings court?
(206083864)'Celdea': *something like
Tavis Bluegale: You mean did it have an insignia from a family?
(206083864)'Celdea': Yea, some famious family or such a thing
Tavis Bluegale: hm..
Tavis Bluegale: No, not a famous family. It had the insignia of the first mans family though.
(206083864)'Celdea': Wasthe beggar related to him in anyway?
Tavis Bluegale: No. The begger had only met the man once.
(206083864)'Celdea': Why he had the ring of the first mans family?
(730844539)'Fir': Did the first man want to fool the other men that he was dead by putting the ring on the arm?
Tavis Bluegale: Fir, you are very close, but you have not yet hit the nail on the head. And Celdea, as I said before, the first man put the ring on the hand, not the beggar.
(206083864)'Celdea': Had the first man a son or a daughter, and had the order to kill him or her, bringing the arm as sign?
(206083864)'Celdea': Or better the ring.
Xarek Bandargo: The first soldier tried to show them the arm to prove that someone was dead, he gave it to the second one to give it to the third one and then the third out of disgust threw it away
Tavis Bluegale: No-one is dead. The third and second man were glad to see the arm. Non of the men had a family.
(206083864)'Celdea': Did the second and the third wanted to punish the first man?
Tavis Bluegale: Hm.. They did not want to punish him, but they did want him to have his arm chopped off.
Tavis Bluegale smiles wider.
(206083864)'Celdea': Well..the same for me
(206083864)'Celdea': Thats why they has lucky.
Xarek Bandargo: The first stole the ring?
Tavis Bluegale: It was not as punishment they wanted his arm chopped off though. Shall i say the answer? you are extremely close anyway.
Tavis Bluegale: No, the ring belonged to his family.
(206083864)'Celdea': Well, anser it.
Tavis Bluegale: The three men had been in a war recently, the war was going well and so many of the soldiers were called off, including their own regiment. On the the back to their homeland however, they were
Tavis Bluegale: attacked by a large band of enemies, they defeated the enemies, but only the three of them survivied, plus all the food was stolen during the fighting. They made a deal, they would each cut off
Tavis Bluegale: a limb to eat as they went along, so that they would survive, they were rescued just a day before the 1st man had to cut off his arm. When they returned home, they demanded he cut off his arm,
Tavis Bluegale: to be fair to them. Since they had each cut off an arm. This man always wore his familys signet ring, so, he payed a begger for his arm, he cut off the arm and washed it and proceeded to put the
Tavis Bluegale: ring on the hand. He then sent it to the two men so that they thought he had cut off his arm, and thus he got to keep his arm.
(206083864)'Celdea': A cruel riddle...poor beggar..
Tavis Bluegale: Aye,
Xarek Bandargo: Indeed
(730844539)'Fir': Indeed cruel.
A fun days riddling at the camp fire
