Exist, exist one single lodge.

Safe but not out after first dodge.

Period B.F. no k

Ok, I'm trying to go out on a limb since it seems I'm just not thinking right on word 2. Here are my musings, but I can't really say that I have anything resembling an answer.

Safe - sure, positive, +/t/T

secure, tie up, knots/Q

stable, stationAry/A

But - butt, rear end, Z?

butt up to, abut, next to?

Not - Knot/Q?, except I can't figure out a U from "out"

Not Out - In/N

Not Out - safe (as in baseball) - something else for "safe"?

After - O (comes after N?)

First - 1/I or A

or After First? - B?

or what letter is after the first letter in this word?

Dodge - ball, round/O

avoid, go around, S

Maybe it'll help someone else. Hopefully won't just make everyone confused!

Nice work. You really have a lot of the concepts behind the words of Line 2. Including what I thought would be the hardest. Just not the full solutions (of all) the letters in the answer. Was going to give a hint. I know too many correspondences can confuse. You're just so close. Would suggest rereading my original hint regarding the methodology of solving this puzzle. Like I said was going to give a hnt. Now think that could spoil it.

Gotta leave the room. Feel free to talk among yourselves. Will check in from time to time.

just out of curiosity what is POW?

It stands for "play on words". They often include things like antonyms or synonyms (double meaning), literal interpretion, homophones, etc. They will often be accompanied by a descriptor word or phrase like "sounds of" or "aloud" for homophones; "in other words" "not" "like" "never" for ants. & syns.

In the case of my quickie POW's (yes, hope there will be more) each word or two (generally speaking) of the puzzle corresponds to a letter spelling out the answer and other descriptors can be thrown in refering to the relation of individual letters. Here are two examples I had put in another post.

asp arched shape around kid

--asp is a snake which is "S" shaped

--arched again shape yields "C"

--around or phonetically a round or "O"

--kid meaning to make fun of or tease = "TT"

Put it all together and get SCOTT

Golly, a circular well graded and raised track

--Golly or gee = "G"

--a circular = "O"

--well graded as in a test at school = "A"

--raised track or el = "L"

So you get GOAL

Hey no fair, you've done these before. Not it for Line 3. This "Quickie POW" are more like yours where individual letters add up to make the word.

wrong

Regarding a hint. Guess I had mentioned to Chess_Vixen I might. Then posted two I told you about and even another since. Granted the two I told you about are pretty obscure. Oops! (pure sarcasm and not another hint). But OK, here's a another. Even make it all official like:

This second line consists only of what you might call first generation clues like in line one. As opposed to multi-generation clues like A leads to B leads to C (see tiger_lily111's brilliant fourth generation answer for the word "safe"). As for line 3, well...

BrainDen is the answer

BRAIN because of what was earlier figured out.

For the second part:

Safe but (E=error. In baseball if the runner is safe but it is not a hit it could be because of and Error)

not out (IN or N)

after first dodge (D is the first of dodge)

so DEN is the answer to the second part.

Excellent, I have a different method for "safe but" and will study yours more. See you are still right here so see real quick if you can find my reasoning behind answer "E" in this line.

hugemonkey solves Line 2. Well done.

may like your method for "safe but" = "E" better than mine. I had "but" or butt being the end of the word "safe" = "E"

Anyone up for extra credit?

EXTRA CREDIT for "Here we go"

Any interest in the extra credit? If so:

You will need to use two things you can write but are not letters.

'Bought to put this one to bed. Am thinking all are tired of this. (Two puns, zero hints)

One last attempt to resurrect in the form of a

Got to think anyone who is reading this and has been following is working backwards to solve the E.C. If not, that's the first hint. (really only one answer, really obvious, reread the title)

Finally, in working backwards, convert to numbers first using similar stategies as with letters. Then make corrolation back to the riddle

didn't help. Just confused me more. I've got

Period=dot?

no=number?

dot is correct. Do you have the whole answer? BrainDen_____ Then work backwords starting with the answer, using the hint above, and back to the clue to establish the reasoning.

Just like a word clue suggests a letter, it could suggest a number which in turn suggests a letter.

of course you are correct but how does B.F.=C and how does k=M?

It must be .com

so the total answer is BrainDen.com

period= "." or dot

B.F. = "c" ?

no = 0 or "O"

k = "m" ?
