A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible GM'S RESOURCE by Liz Smith

Your PCs are deep in the dungeon and have just encountered a terrifying monster which they have no chance of defeating. Luckily, the monster is bored and challenges the party to a riddling contest instead of simply just killing them. Alternatively, the party have encountered a sentient statue that will not let them past until they have answered three riddles correctly. At this point, a GM may panic and just hand wave the ensuing riddles or allow the PCs to answer them correctly by making skill checks.

So What’s The Riddle Like, Anyway? II picks up where So What’s The Riddle Like, Anyway? left off and presents scores more riddles ready to insert into almost any GM’s campaign. Now a GM (or aspiring bard) has loads of riddles in his arsenal ready to strike fear into the hearts of those hearing them!

An RPG Resourse Review

5/5

Some people love riddles, others hate them... but like them or not they are standard fare in classic fantasy. Somewhere in your campaign world, there will be someone (or a creature) who likes asking them, and if the characters have to interact with that individual, his price for whatever they are after may include solving a riddle or two.

So, here is another fine collection that you can draw upon when the need arises. Some are pretty obvious, others... well, you'll be glad that the answers are given! Some will make the whole table groan when all is revealed, and some will make folks laugh.

Bard characters may also find this a useful resource, if they'd like to add a few riddles to their repertoire. You could even have an epic riddle contest between rival bards... until the rest of the party starts throwing things at them to make them stop!

It makes an enjoyable read, and the majority of the riddles are general enough that you could use them in the real world if you enjoy riddles.... (and with my teacher head on, they make good lesson starters!).


Great sequel - now also with number-riddles!

5/5

This pdf is 13 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 2 pages editorial, 1 page ToC/foreword,1 page SRD, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 6 pages of content, so let's check this out!

So this pdf is the second collection of riddles by author Liz Smith, and after some more classic ones in the first installment, we start off with riddles based on creatures - from riddles on vampires, werewolves to some on humble snails, these riddles are both clever and usable, though some are a bit on the easy side. I immediately knew answers to quite a few of them.

The second page is all about people and jobs and is something for sadistic DMs who put timers on riddles, for some of them lead you to hasty (and wrong) answers, whereas upon contemplation, the correct answers should be apparent. Again, neato!

The third page is one of my favorites: Riddles based on logic and numbers, something all too scarcely present in adventures. Better yet, while one is based on language, it can easily be converted to a non-English language: Great for people like me who don't play in English. This page is GOLD.

We also get two pages of riddles on objects, one on tangible and one on intangible ones and better yet, many (though not all) work as well in other languages, so again: Kudos!

The final page would then be about places and locations and again, while most riddles work independent of language used, there also are some that might require a tad bit of work for translating them to another language, they actually DO work.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to RSP's beautiful two-column no-frills standard and the pdf comes fully bookmarked as well as with two versions: One for screen use and one to be printed out. Part I was good. Author Liz Smith has surpassed herself with the second one, providing not only lesser known riddles, but also ones that translate well to other languages and tie in with concepts existing in the gaming world. For the fair, low price, you get an AWESOME little compilation of great riddles to bring some brains back to all the dice-rolling brawn at your table. My final verdict should come as no surprise: 5 stars + seal of approval - this is not only useful for English-speaking tables!

Endzeitgeist out.
