Question

Guest

(Never done anything like this - Please be easy on me! :blush: )

Below 3 words and then some math

Follow the clues - too easy a path?

Out of many there's just one

You have come here in hopes to find

Using something sort of like magic

It will take you little time

Now's not the time for games

The key was here I know!

Who are you? Where am I?

Oh this is getting old

When I came in, stones were thrown

I wear leather never lace

When I left, looked down upon

Since I couldn't keep up the pace

Now at the end you will see

Take 1 from 2 add that to 3

Now look close - 3 numbers! - Almost done

Add them all up - Isn't this fun!

Just a number is all I seek

Math indeed! (Tongue in cheek...)

is this a math riddle or a word riddle?

Don't want to give too much away - but it's words...

Hey zmike, always fun to have new riddlers.

Am I looking for one word per stanza? Or 3 words described in all stanzas?

3 words. Then you'll do some "math" on those words to find some numbers. From those you will find the answer!

Like I said - it's my first try... :(

Don't be discouraged, we are trying :D It's always tricky to figure out the way a new person writes; to try and figure out how to guess. It's very well written.

1= number, 2=question, 3= gate or east

Trying...

No sorry - Good guesses but not in the right direction

zmike, I must say, a quite impressive first riddle. have been giving it much thought and have come up with little just yet but it is certainly still capturing my intrigue. owe us both a guess at this point

first thought for the first stanza was answer which we now know is WRONG. and for the second all I gots is key(s) so far. That seems like it may be too short a word tho, if there is math to be done.

Will keep crunchin' on this. Maybe something will start to add up...

Edit: screwy tags, sorry

Heya zMike, nice first one. Like PG, I've been watching this one trying to come up with a good guess. Still don't have anything original for 1 or 3 but I'll try a guess for the 2nd stanza.

confusion?

I feel a small rewrite may be necessary for #1. Should I do that?

I would hold off a bit unless there is something really misleading in the original. Now that we have one word, it should help us figure out where you're going with 1 and 3. So I'd give it a couple of hours at least and see how the answers go.

I agree, too early to hint and push us :) Its a good riddle, let it be good!
