Riddle of honor

Question

Shakeepuddn    4

Here’s a totem a tale to tell

of worlds at war where hammers fell.

There’s a tower of windows six,

shades when drawn determined picks.

Face to face at the end of plot

Received a kiss, were missed when shot.

Two sentries stalwart held their ground

Guarding bridges spanning round.

Nothing yet. Scudo, I had trouble getting my spoilers to post until i started typing a single letter first and then clicking on the icon. Weird but it woks every time.

Nah. I don't think random guesses are going to work on this one. If you get the correct thing(s), all will make sense according to wordplay and fall into place.

a three hole punch?

cool trick to get the spoiler dialogue box to work. wondered why there seemed to always be a letter after your posts.

in a curtained voting both, marking the ballot with a pencil?

I get the feeling this might be just a little too much for a riddle answer

I think I could possibly be on the right track?

A book? Something to do with a library?

Hmm. Great answers all, but none on the mark. I really don't want to give any clues. Along with all the word play and double entendres is an image that can help lead to the answer. When that answer presents itself as a possibility, all the tumblers will fall into place.

Hmmm...

A lock? I feel like somehow the "tumblers" bit in your last post was a very very very subtle hint... and then lock just kinda made a little tiny bit of sense... So yeah....

Croquet Stakes

Totem: wooden pole (one stake)

worlds at war: wooden croquet balls in a match

hammers: mallets

tower of windows six: other stake, 6 colored "shades" and the order on the stake determines order of play and what color you prefer to pick.

Face to face at end of plot: plot = lawn area

Received a kiss, missed when shot. = must hit the stake after passing through the two wickets (bridges), though some like to play the last stake as poison.

LOL!!! I believe I mentioned that all the word play would fall into place. Well Done PG, though I was looking for the "towers" and not the tale.

Another excellent one, Shakes.

@PG - Thanks for putting this one to rest. I was looking at it from about 5 different directions, none of them close :)
