(The three answers are, of course, connected.)

I: Unlike afflictions that strike and move on,
This lingers after all symptoms are gone.

II. No threat was made, no robbery done,
Yet two arms upraised reach for the sun.

III. Some men end by the sword;
The sword's end made me.

That'd definitely work for the second riddle alone, but using that answer won't lead you to the other two. Individually, these riddles are ambiguous, but if you solve all three, I think you'll have no doubt that your answer's correct.

lenzvlt: A good try! But the connection between the three answers is less ambiguous than that.

Let me be clearer. Although Thalia's answer would satisfy the second riddle alone, it isn't the correct answer in this context, and might actually lead you in entirely wrong directions.

MissKitten: Far from it.

Newbie: No, no, and no.

TheChad: That would be an excellent answer for the first riddle alone, but isn't what I was looking for - it doesn't fit the pattern of the three answers.

Here are some clues to eliminate some general possibilities:

Spoiler for First Riddle


Spoiler for Second Riddle


Spoiler for Third Riddle
