I came across this riddle in the scinaro called Backwater Calls.

What is this thing that having it,You can no longer give it away, But lacking it, for the moment at least, You can give it the those who pay.

I haven't played the scenario, but my guess would be "nothing"

It's a Betrayal at Krondor riddle. The answer is 'Death'. I will never ever forget this particular riddle after my DM used it on us. We told the guardian the answer was 'Debt'. Said guardian tried to kill us, despite our pleas that it was a legitimate answer. Sigh...

I ended up googling it, but it has been too long. Maybe death?

Edit - Umm. Really no legitimate excuses here. Didn't scroll down. Only saw the first response. Thought I could be helpful. I did manage to sync the times so that it appears like they were posted simultaneously. Almost.

Grrr...

Heh… reminds me of a riddle my DM used on us one time.

At some point, our party met a dryad, who told us to be careful where we look for beauty.

Later, we were looking for something, and we encountered three illusionary creatures: a landshark, a mindflayer, and a beholder. We had to pick one.

Any guesses at the right answer?

They do not like being provoked.

I'd say the Beholder. Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Of course, I'm somewhat leaning towards Landshark too so...

Beholder, final answer.

Did I win the million, Meredith?

--------------------
I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

Beholder indeed.

Wow. You got it much faster than we did. Then again, we were all tired, and the DM didn't actually refer to what the dryad said until we'd been puzzling over it for a fairly long time.

I was pretty sure it was beholder, but the 'be careful where you look' almost threw me. That's why I was leaning toward Landshark. That, and some game designers will throw in something completely non-sensical just to make things difficult.

Best riddle ever was that pointless goblin riddle in Erika's tower where the best solution was just to kill them. I love riddles that end like that.

Yeah, I was a fan of that riddle, too.

-X- says that the answer to the original riddle was, indeed, death. -X- had a lot of fun saying that riddle for weeks afterward to allof his friends until they began plotting his death.

-X- offers an explanation, since this is first post. -X- is not trying to imitate Dikiyoba The Great. -X- simply enjoys third person too much. -X- also uses it more often.

Well, it's hard to disagree with that statement. Dikiyoba doesn't mind -X-'s style.

Reminds me of some appropriate morbid month fare. The following was on a gravestone:

Merideth Rogers 1813-1889

Here lies one blown out of breath
She lived a merry life
She died a Merideth
