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? III picks up where So What’s The Riddle Like, Anyway? II left off and presents sets of riddles grouped together dealing with a certain topic - for example the elements - for a GM to used in a themed dungeon or other adventure.

5/5

The third in Raging Swan's mini-series of riddle-books is 13 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD/how to use, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 8 pages of content, so let's take a look, shall we?

The pdf kicks off with a rather cool selection that should be considered the prime example of usefulness of this pdf - one riddle per dragon-type. Yes, ladies and gentlemen - for metallic and chromatic dragons, one riddle each - awesome! "Tied to the gaming world" should be considered the mantra here: Glorious! And this theme is continued in the following pages - on the next one, we get elemental riddles for the basic elements and then for the para-elements (i.e. lightning, mud etc. for the non-Planescape-veterans).

Beyond that, we get riddles for each attribute score, for each alignment-component, for energy and weapon-damage types, 3 dealing with echo, 3 that have the implements of exorcism as their solution and yes, even riddles for the friggin' 4 horsemen! Oh, there also are heart-themed riddles, those that deal with instruments, love, mirror, moon, oak, shadow and time.

Oh, and finally, there are riddles that DMs of RotRL, Shattered Star or similarly-themed campaigns will enjoy: Seven Sin-themed riddles, ready to be inserted into a Thassilonian complex of your choice - coming with a complex riddle that encompasses all (and is rather easy) as well as slightly more challenging individual riddles. And yes, these SHOULD be used in complexes like the one in e.g. "Sins of the Saviors". Two thumbs up!

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting, as I've come to expect from raging Swan Press, are top-notch. I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to RSP's crisp 2-column standard and the pdf comes fully bookmarked for your convenience and in two versions, with the second one being intended for the printer.

Liz Smith has written, no surprise

another joy for tired eyes.

Unfortunately some riddles do look beyond,

our shared fantasy world's illusion's bond

by referring to things metaphysical

crunch-terms that are just not mystical.

So what is then my final score?

Well reader, please don't be a bore

and indulge a little bit

this rather infantile wit

and please, read on and see

where I go with this bad poetry.

In case you haven't seen already

or your memory's not that steady

my judgment is bereft of, but rhymes with "strife"

but though it cuts me like a knife

I will refrain from giving my seal

yet still, this is an excellent deal.

Endzeitgeist out.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue
You wrote a review,
so thank you!

Aren't you glad, Liz wrote this supplement?

;-)


There's a nice ironic variation in German of that one; rather popular among goths, about withered cut flowers:

"Meine Rosen sind schwarz, meine Veilchen nicht bunter - Ich lieb' euch so sehr, denn ihr zieht mich schön runter."

(Translates approximately to: "My roses are black, my violets no gaudier - I love you so much, for you beautifully drag me down.")

And yes, for the non-goths - that's thoroughly ironic and makes fun of the cliché of us always being depressed and down. And I don't know a single person who actually has withered cut flowers at home. ;)
