Riddles in Spellhold

Discussion in 'BG2: Shadows of Amn (Classic)' started by Izaad, Apr 4, 2002.

    [​IMG] Can anybody transcribe the riddles for me, please? Preferrably with the choices as well. I got past them quite easily, but thinking back, some of the riddles were quite clever. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If possible, be exact in the wording. Thanks

    "The man who invented it, doesn't want it for himself. The man who bought it, doesn't need it for himself. The man who needs it, doesn't know when he needs it."

    Face Eleven

    "A spirited jig it dances bright, banishing all but darkest night. Give it food and it will live, give it water and it will die."

    Answer: Fire

    Face Twelve

    "Lighter than what I am made of, more of me is hidden than is seen, I am the bane of the mariner, a tooth within the sea. Speak my name."

    Isnt that Spellhold and not Irenicus' Dungeon?
  5. ArchAngel Guest

    Sure, or even "Bodhi's Prison". But what the heck. :heh:

    Edit; Why does it matter at all? Izaad got what he wanted; didn't he?
    It Could be "Bodhi's Beauty Box of Brave Beasts" for all we care.

    Perhaps Irenicus's Asylum? After all, he took over as coordinator, so it's his asylum. Although the guy wouldn't fit badly in there either. ;)
