  1. Eek! Yay!

    Thank you so much for hosting this. Brightened my Saturday exponentially. :)

    May I ask what the answer to the puzzle at the bottom of Part II was? I spent like half an hour picking apart the different posts, putting together letters, words, etc... I must know!

  2. I want to know about the 200 points also. Tried taking words from your answers and other posts and got a confused scramble. Was 'Give' one of the words.

  3. The key was to look at the list of blog names that followed.

    In the Jungle
    It's In the Details
    Questions & Archetypes
    A Storyteller's Musings
    Verbose Veracity
    The Write Time
    Yesternight's Voyage

    a) In the fourth I am first.
    Answer: fourth blog, first word = "A"
    b) In the last I am the second of the sixth answer.
    Answer: last blog, second word of the answer to the sixth question = "good"
    c) In the third I am in the fourth answer. Number three of the third part and the key to the entire challenge answer.
    Answer: third blog, answer of the fourth question, third word of the third paragraph = "story"
    d) The next two bits are found in the second. Take the first and last from the beginning and the fourth from the ending.
    Answer: second blog, first and last letters from the first word, and the fourth letter of the last word = "is a"
    e) Search the first. Within the second answer there are _____ mistakes. I rhyme with that answer. Don't guess or your answer may be false.
    Answer: first blog, question #2's answer, the number of mistakes mentioned (two). The answer rhymes with that word. = "true"
    f) The first part of me is found: 6-1, 6-5, 6-3, 5-11, 5-6, 1-7, 5-3, 5-2. Put us together and see what you've found.
    Blog 6, 1st letter = "t"
    Blog 6, 5th letter = "r"
    Blog 6, 3rd letter = "e"
    Blog 5, 11th letter = "a"
    Blog 5, 6th letter = "s"
    Blog 1, 7th letter = "u"
    Blog 5, 3rd letter = "r"
    Blog 5, 2nd letter = "e"

    Put all the words together and you've cracked the riddle.
