Title: Crypt 3 Riddle
Post by: SmartyPants on December 23, 2010, 07:43:06 PM
[spoiler]
"The wind abhors
 A door-
 He smothers it
 Till it can stand no more.

 With a loud crash there
 Is open air
 Where only musty darkness
 Was Before."

"The wind will blow
 Right through a window-
 He blasts it
 To a crystal powdered snow.

 With no more pane, the glass
 At last is free:
 And someday
 I will be."[/spoiler]

Besides that, this belongs to the bugs thread. That, or Craig hasn't finished it yet so wait for it.[/spoiler]

[spoiler]You should also ask Rahel. If you have a good enough relationship with her, she'll explain it in some detail.[/spoiler]

I promise to keep this to a one-post tangency/divergence.

I've always found that the dialogue with Rahel was interesting, because there are so many ways to go about it, and some ways seem overly presumptuous, others seem crude, and some are downright stupid. The only way I can open up more conversation with Rahel is by needling her about the whole losing control thing until she loses it; it leaves me feeling terrible that I've done such a thing, but she's nicer, kinder, more open in the future, so I think that that's an okay choice, and you don't lose anything by doing it.

Hey Guys, guess what?

Turns out that after you complete this riddle, there is another riddle! But this time, it is in the old language so you have to figure out which symbol means what. Then you have another fun time trying to figure out what this riddle means. Enjoy. (Also: Rahel won't bail you out this time...)

I figured out the three old language translation puzzles, but they still don't help at all :(

[spoiler]it ceases to exist in darkness
you within limits
what's light is all that's last[/spoiler]

Actually Dayn, its:

[spoiler]"It ceases to exist in darkness"

"You, within limits"

"What's right is all that's left"

[/spoiler]

I also know the answer, so anyone who can't figure it out, I would be happy to help by giving clues.

[spoiler]The messages I've managed to decipher are:

Also, the Only letters left (In Alphabetical Order) are: PQUYZ and possibly V because it was only used in reversal.
And, finally, no matter how you shine the light, the owl doesn't disappear.[/spoiler]

Help?

Do you guys want the answer?

First of all, it's "You, Within Limits" not Job.

Second, Talk back to me is a big hint. What object allows you to talk back to you? Note: That exists in an technology free world (so no sound recorders)

Third and Finally, This is a Object, Not a feeling or an Abstract Concept. So no Love, Happiness, Death and etc.

If you still can't figure it out PM me.
