1.
Elegant and thin, she leads a certain kin.
Find upon her a trinket: Colored the same as it's home, it is dog sized full grown.

2.
Practicially made from jade, she has a penchant for merchants.
Find upon her a trinket: The color of the sun, kids use this for fun.

3.
Her eyes in the skies, golden waves for the days.
Find upon her a trinket: Blink and you'll miss it, it goes on a biscuit.

4.
This sneaky scout is always wandering about. With hair of red he makes a great friend.
Find upon him a trinket: Bright and smelly, of calla or the valley.

5.
A minature of another, this person she calls mother.
Find upon her a trinket: If it falls on your pelts, it will certainly melt.

6.
You need only think of the color pink.
Find upon her a trinket: Burning and red, it makes things dead. (when this person uses it!)

7.
Devoted to beauty, he's such a cutie.
Find upon him a trinket: If you peer in it, you'll see a little shi--... uh, thing.

8.
Some people think her cousin is mean, but it's really not what it would seem.
Find upon her a trinket: Alone you'd lose the bout, but her deity makes this his mount.

9.
Who she is you'll never know, not a piece of garb has glow.
Find upon her a trinket: Tiny and fluffy it's said as bad luck.




You should find 10 items in your inventory. Hide them from said inventory. If you get down to one item, keep it and ping me for more.

Honor system here: Don't go sharing your correct guesses. Have fun!

If you didn't get around to mailing, do so quickly and I'll add you in ASAP.

They’re sort of tough. I can guess five, but not the people for all of them.

I can generally figure out who the person is or what the item is, but not for both on the same one. I've only acquired one item, which I did send in. I think on some of the clues they're too general in that it can apply to tons of different things.

Let's get this finished I intended to leave it open until February!

Final month - you may find the person only and say they have a token if you find my riddle too hard. Then person with token may give you more logical hints!

If still no guess, hand the token over anyhow - you had RP of it. Enjoy that. :)

Closing this out.

The items you all still have left are yours to share freely now, they're amulets of communication.

Thank you for volunteering.

Have you mastered all of your weapons? I bet not! (Shush, Aoife!)

The Church of Lathander invites you to a competition to improve one uncommonly used weapon from inept ability with it to a grandly mastered knowledge of it.

Your options are:
Whips
Thrown projectiles
Rope weapons
Lines
Crossbows
Chains
Bows
Slings

Write a letter to Meira to submit your entry. Your name, and the weapon you choose. In return you will be sent back a mundane weapon in the category you have chosen. Those of you who manage to grandly master the weapon you have chose you will receive a powerfully enchanted weapon designed to your aesthetic.

(Today, 6-8 is the beginning to give your name in. I will send out weapons come 6-12. From 6-13 to 6-30 are your days to work with your weapon. I will be checking opening and closing skill levels, no funny business. ;) )

Remember this? Doesn't it seem like a great time to do this again?

Only this time let's do it with common weapons for all the new PCs we are seeing! Submit your new PCs name and their weapon to my inbox here, and on May 1 you'll get a weapon if you GM'd!!

Have fun, enjoy distractions and stay home and healthy!!!

Does it have to be a new PC? Or can an old PC start a new weapon?

I'm curious as to what constitutes a 'new' PC. My strongest is only level 19 and he's never mastered any weapon let alone GM'd. I wonder if I'd even get it done in a month :lol: ..although technically you don't need to start from inept if you find a trainer and pump a few gold to get to apprentice...

I'd say if you created within the last month it's new?
Maybe even last 2-3 could be considered new ish?
Anything over that isn't really new.
