Allows fighting. Orc gets caught in conversation loop. First riddle not allowed to answer wrong. Played three endings.

This module needs polishing before it is up with the competition. The writing is below avarage, and the story is as yet immature. Also: as far as I found out, solving the second the riddle requires doing something that is not allowed by the rules of the contest.

I can easily imagine this as a sidequest, and I like the idea of helping with other riddles at the same time. (When I got the 2nd riddle wrong, instead of simply dying the villain attacked me - this might count as combat and led to disqualification, I don't know.)

This piece had two endings, get it right, or die. In the conversation when my character asked if there was not any other way? The riddle giver replies "Excellent!" and then proceeds to ask me the first riddle. I found that a little disconcerting, as I had been expecting either a 'No' or something else. (however, this submission is entitled The Riddle, so perhaps I shouldn't have) I don't think the option should have been given, if there was no other course to take however. I did manage to help the female NPC with her riddle, however I could not get the Orc to allow me to try and help him, I felt that the Orc was a little waste of space, and the word count used up on him could have been used elsewhere perhaps. The actual riddles were good, and the use of items to give clues well done. Sadly, I did not understand the second riddle, opted for the third, and got it wrong. So I died. As a side quest in a module this would work fine, with a little more polish in the dialogue. _________________________ QSW -NWVault Reviewers Forum
