    Moving the riddle to this page for convenience's sake.



    The man in black appears before your eyes.
    "Your fortune's what you seek, but e'en the wise
    Could not tell you for certain what doth lie
    Ahead within your future, so say I.

    "But come, sit down a spell, whilst I essay
    To tell aught you would know ere I away.
    Three cards, no more, no less, do I lay down
    Here at your feet, upon the rocky ground.

    "The first is difficult to unconceal,
    For April and May both are here revealed.
    As winter thus to spring doth start the year,
    So does this roaring force deign to appear. THUNDER (Jon)

    "The second is the largest thing on earth,
    The thing to which we all owe our first birth.
    The softest thing it looketh to the eye,
    But lo! It tramples mountains standing nigh. OCEAN (Maturins_Daughter)

    "The third is last, and last it fitting be,
    For it's the final end that you will see.
    Ignored by all, yet come to tragedy
    Do all as this doth claim its property. DEATH (Jon)

    "The final clue I forthwith tell to you:
    We three are half of six, and six we do
    Make half of twelve, upon this towering height.
    Tell, seeker, have you solved it now aright?" OLYMPUS (Gaberax)

    Not that specific....

    I'll count it though, because you said "ocean." I was going for "sea," but what's the difference? Good job!

    Now, care to tackle the final answer?

    You bumped--are you going to guess and take this thing out of limbo?

    I'm going to be very ashamed of everyone if they can't guess the final answer based on the clues....



    Thunder, Ocean, Death?

    "We three are half of six, and six we do
    Make half of twelve, upon this towering height."

    What else COULD it be?

    Okay, this riddle has been up almost a month and no one's even bothered TRYING to guess the final answer?

    PLEASE don't make me give it to you--it's too easy based on the other clues for me to cheat you out of it, and I don't want this thing to be a zombie forever....

    Hold on! I haven't looked at it, honestly, except to bump it....

    Is it the Greek Gods? Zeus, Poseidon, Hades? Mount Olympus for the Towering Height?
    Grrr...

    You're welcome! Thanks for answering it, and for the compliment--I was starting to wonder if everyone (not you, collectively everyone) was thinking, "That's so dumb I won't even dignify it with a response"....

    Glad you liked it, though!

    What I like most about this riddle (and riddles like it?) It will stand the test of time. It isn't tied to issues, people, clues of the moment but you could post it again in 10 years and a whole new batch of people could puzzle through it.

    Keep up the good work.
    Grrr...

    Wow.

    I don't think I've ever gotten that compliment on...well, ANYTHING.

    You, sir, have just made my day! Just for that you get your choice of sides with that goose!

    Well, see, I had no way of knowing that since no one posted to SAY they were--especially since I figured it couldn't have been easier based on the clues....

    Anyway, you got two of the three initial clues, so congratulations!
