Question

First we have some light entertainment...

To use after a private mailbox:

1. averages doubly halved (4)

2. overlapping a little bit simpler (6)

3. 1000 b.c. arrival scheduled before icy James chilled and finished with top marks (9)

4. singular prof's helpers owe follower Mr. Lange -- split up over bond startups (7)

5. a framer's guide leads a strong pair to launch (5)

6. those who strike the sickly after reversed alien divided about the eighth (3,7)

7. before merging into ocean are perceivers also within between fuzzy fruit states a timely variable ends (4,7)

8. acidity begins and ends around the experience of that guy there (5)

9. probability of blind life necessity = an early selection of flipped epsilon (8)

10. after Family's first comes Exxon's roaring child and an iron winged switch up (5,2,4)

11. the fifth plus five and one simply calculated with ease, see? having then cleared all work, done... (11)

12. broken jaw point between the ninth and inapplicable, twisted, endless isles (4,4,5)

Followed by a little refreshment....

Jocsnyv S wkp qo, pom vmsuu meyo mn wp rnej: km mao odj nf mao fsevm usov mao wkx fne mao masej.

And then on to the main festivities....

I've you've found gotten out used my to it all

name, now, and so i cannot so quit, have the

booze and played the chow, just cant live through without

my it. I know i should game. try and be

Not more just astute, but when the i see a

nice menu, once i just can't give a but hoot.

twice My checks and my plastic regarded, could sure use

look a back break, but i just cant through resist

the best all wine with my steak. My of puzzles

you've solved, through the mirrors and the smoke, now tell

words me you've my vice, before discarded. I'm flat broke.

There are four separate puzzles/riddles, and it will be easiest to solve them in order from top to bottom, but you may try to tackle whichever you like in whatever order (wouldn't be a good party if you couldn't do what you like right?) Hopefully this one lasts at least half as long as it took me to put it together, and also hopefully it will be as much fun as it seemed on paper. Either way, let me shut up and get out of your way!

Enjoy yourselves... cool.gif

First the easy one: the middle phrase seems like

Devious I may be, yet still true to my word: at the end of the first lies the map for the third.

I am still new, and I feel completely unaware. How could you decode the strange writing? :blink:

go back a week or so into the old riddles and look up Quickie PoWs by plainglazed... that should shed some light on the first set :D

Ok, question: Are these like HM's POW's, PG's 'quickie' POW's, or something else POW-y?

:offtopic: & congrats on hitting 1k! :lol:

the quickie ones i think, although reasoning is sort of a relative concept... we shall see i guess

ph34r.gif after all, the best way to find out which duck is going to be dinner is to start shooting right?

8. acidity begins and ends around the experience of that guy there (5)

Acidity = ?

begins and ends around = o

experience = x, xp or ex?

of that guy there = ?

just to kick those off :)

none of those sorry, but keep it up :D

rage.....??? aves (bird)....???

nope sorry..... :D

1000 b.c.=M

arrival scheduled

before

icy =IC

James chilled

and finished with top marks=A (9)

got some bolded correctness there wink.gif

1000 b.c.=M

arrival scheduled - ETA

before - indicates the clue after IC should come before

icy =IC

James chilled - cool J - LL

and finished with top marks=A (9)

4. singular prof's helpers owe follower Mr. Lange -- split up over bond startups

(Singular) Prof's Helpers = TA

Owe = O

Follower (directional)

Mr. Lange ??

Split Up (Directions)

over Bond Startups

5. a framer's guide leads a strong pair to launch

Framer's Guide = T

7. before merging into ocean are perceivers also within between fuzzy fruit states a timely variable ends

Merging Into = with, w (or directions)

Ocean = Sea, C

Are = R

Perceivers = Eyes -> I,I (also, too, 2, II)

Within Between (double preposition, btw dD!) (Directional)

Fuzzy Fruit = peach, kiwi?

States

Timely = sec, min, hr ...

Variable = x,y

8. acidity begins and ends around the experience of that guy there

Acidity = H

Begins & Ends = A, Z

9. probability of blind life necessity = an early selection of flipped epsilon

Probability = P

Blind (no C?)

Life Necessity = O2 -> OO

Early Selection

Flipped Epsilon = 3?

11. the fifth plus five and one simply calculated with ease, see? having then cleared all work, done...

5th -> E, V, B(oron)

10th-> J, X, Ne(on)

and One -> A, I, H(ydrogen), or 11 -> K, Na(Sodium)

Simply = EZ

Calculated

Ease = EE

See = C

Merging Into = with, w (or directions)

Ocean = Sea, C

Are = R

Perceivers = Eyes -> I,I (also, too, 2, II) - close but not quite

Within Between (double preposition, btw dD!) (Directional)

Fuzzy Fruit = peach, kiwi?

States

Timely = sec, min, hr ...

Variable = x,y

8. acidity begins and ends around the experience of that guy there

Acidity = H

Begins & Ends = A, Z

9. probability of blind life necessity = an early selection of flipped epsilon

Probability = P

Blind (no C?)

Life Necessity = O2 -> OO

Early Selection

Flipped Epsilon = 3? - right epsilon, wrong flip

11. the fifth plus five and one simply calculated with ease, see? having then cleared all work, done...

5th -> E, V, B(oron)

10th-> J, X, Ne(on)

bolded correct and made a couple comments... nice work overall TL

I really want the answer to be EVANESCENCE (and hopefully find a theme) but I can't make it completely work yet.

the fifth plus five and one simply calculated with ease, see? having then cleared all work, done...

5th -> E

plus five -> V

and One -> A

Simply Calculated -> somehow this could be N???

with Ease -> EE -> ES

See = C

having then cleared all work, done -> would need to be ENCE but I'm not sure how

Haha, I found a way ...

Having then -> Halving then -> EN

Clear all work -> CE (like, on a calculator!)

Absolute & total credit to DD, I suck at seeing the whole of these things!

nailed the theme, but need a bit more work on the pieces wink.gif

after Family's first comes Exxon's roaring child and an iron winged switch up (5,2,4)

Family -> KIN

Exxon's -> ESSO -> SO

roaring child -> ??? I think this needs to be a G and somehow in front of the SO

iron -> FE

wing -> ell (like an addition to a house) -> L

****not sure how to get the L inside the FE

switch up -> ON

after Family's first comes Exxon's roaring child and an iron winged switch up (5,2,4)

Family -> KIN

Exxon's -> ESSO -> SO - nice, got it with half the clue, roaring child was the key - Esso's mascot/symbol is a tiger :D

roaring child -> ??? I think this needs to be a G and somehow in front of the SO

iron -> FE

wing -> ell (like an addition to a house) -> L

****not sure how to get the L inside the FE

switch up -> ON

getting close, still some work to be done here
