Ok, so far I've found two differant riddles in Exile III, I got the first one but this second one is definatly throwing a hitch in my get-along. The riddle I've come across is in a dryad's grove just outside of the Ursagi/goblin infested canyon in the southwestern area of the continent. You can reach it in the unregistered version but to enter it you need to have registered. Upon entering the grove you see a dryad, weeping by the entrance, an ogre has entered her grove and is destroying her gardens and killing her pets and she is enlisting you to forcably remove it. As you travel into the depths of her grove (only one party member at a time) you come upon a gremlin. He says he's there to help you but it would be ungremlin-like of him to simply help you so he has to ask you a riddle.

The riddle is: "I have a thousand little knives. My hands are red and white. You can give them to your maid. To make things turn out right. What am I?"

I have no clue... any hints, ideas, or just straight out answers would be very appreciated, since once you enter the grove you cannot leave, making me very much stuck in the game.

oh geez, I think I just went passed them and beat it anyhow, supposedly it was hard but I have a very strong group. This was a topic not too long ago, why don't you check that for answers.

The answer is "Rose."

—Alorael, who will warn you that there are more riddles ahead. One is a pattern recognition puzzle even though it looks like something else entirely.

ohhh thanks that makes sense now, I don't understand the "thousand tiny knives" part, I suppose it's refering to thorns but I'd say a rose would have no more than 10-20 thorns ^^ thanks again for the help, now I can finally move on.

Oh, Pishaw, and as it turns out: I didn't need the riddle anyway, I had already gone ahead and killed everything, I thought I needed the answer to get past the poppy flower glade but really it was just because I was stepping on the flower patches... stupid two dimentional graphics. ^^

There is a riddle on the Isle of Bigail, in the Crypt, asked by a monster (can't remember the name of it) that is important if you want to get back out.

Its easym but I won't spoil the surprise by supplying the answer.

Yea, that was the first of the two riddles I came across, I think I got that one on my own... but I don't remember. I think it was something like, "I have two knives, long and red, I want to stick them in your head"

Pretty simple but sometimes the easy ones can be tough if you're just not thinking on the right track.

Funny thing is it might be simpler to just kill the guy to get past him ^^ it's what I usually do anyway.

What's interesting is that by saying 'fang', he doesn't attack you, but with 'teeth' he will.

I've always said teeth. Experience = good.

That and that was the only working answer to the riddle I knew of. ;)

I said 'fang' and then killed him. I said 'fang' because I wouldn't really call what he had teeth. Experience and brain power.

EDIT: Can any-one remember the name of that monster? Not his actual name, just what he was.

It was a ghast, wasn't it?

yea, he was a ghast, and he was a lot easier to just kill and go past than the actual keeper of the crypt who's behind a moldy wall and a secret passage behind the ghast... so the whole riddle thing is kinda stupid.

1) *Quick*ghast.
2) The boss dude is not behind the quickghast. He is behind a wight or some such in a secret chamber off to the right of the quickghast chamber.

Nah, you can avoid the wight and ruby skeleton when going to the boss by simply not moving right after breaking down the wall and then going through the secret wall to the left. However, the wight and ruby skeleton are guarding a bit of a treasure trove... And yes, it's directly behind the riddling quick ghast. You can get there by breaking the wall next to the button he's standing in front of.

Yes, Buppy, you can get to that in the unregistered game. The Spiral Crypt is in the woods on the Isle of Bigail. (NOT the northern part with Northpoint Lighthouse, you can't go that far north in the unregistered version)

Yes, you can. I would, however, strongly urge you to have a fairly decent party. There are a lot of skeletons. Save it before you go in.
