And, another riddle of the easier variety:<br /><br />'Twas whispered in Heaven, 'twas muttered in hell,<br />And echo caught faintly the sound as it fell;<br />On the confines of earth 'twas permitted to rest,<br />And in the depths of the ocean its presence confes'd;<br />'Twill be found in the sphere when 'tis riven asunder,<br />Be seen in the lightning and heard in the thunder;<br />'Twas allotted to man with his earliest breath,<br />Attends him at birth and awaits him at death,<br />Presides o'er his happiness, honor and health,<br />Is the prop of his house, and the end of his wealth.<br />In the heaps of the miser 'tis hoarded with care,<br />But is sure to be lost on his prodigal heir;<br />It begins every hope, every wish it must bound,<br />With the husbandman toils, and with monarchs is crowned;<br />Without it the soldier and seaman may roam,<br />But woe to the wretch who expels it from home!<br />In the whispers of conscience its voice will be found,<br />Nor e'er in the whirlwind of passion be drowned;<br />'Twill soften the heart; but though deaf be the ear,<br />It will make him acutely and instantly hear.<br />Set in shade, let it rest like a delicate flower;<br />Ah! Breathe on it softly, it dies in an hour.<br />--Catherine Maria Fanshawe (1765-1834)<br />

OK, here's the newest common answer - PM me with what you think EVERYONE ELSE will say most often.  <br /><br />Which token (non-consumable) gets used the most?<br />Which token (consumable) gets used the most?<br />Name a forumite.<br />Choose one: $1,000 or a golden ticket.<br />If you could only use one ultra-rare on a nightmare run, what would it be?<br />Which character class should have the best reflex save?<br />Name a token that you'll never see in actual use.<br />Name a source of damage in the dungeon.<br />Name a token you always carry but hope to never need.<br />If there was a duck on the floor in the last room, would you pick it up?<br /><br />And if you don't like the questions, I'll save up a rude gesture to share with you at the con.  =D<br />

And, another riddle:<br /><br />Never speaking, still awake,<br />Pleasing most when most I speak,<br />The Delight of old and young,<br />Tho' I speak without a Tongue.<br />Nought but one Thing can confound me,<br />Many Voices joining round me;<br />Then I fret, and rave and gabble,<br />Like the Labourers of Babel.<br />Now I am a Dog, or Cow,<br />I can bark, or I can low,<br />I can bleat, or I can sing,<br />Like the Warblers of the Spring.<br />Let the Love-sick Bard complain,<br />And I mourn the cruel Pain;<br />Let the happy Swain rejoice,<br />And I join my helping Voice;<br />Both are welcome, Grief or Joy,<br />I with either sport and toy.<br />Tho' a Lady, I am stout,<br />Drums and Trumpets bring me out;<br />Then I clash and roar, and rattle,<br />Join in all the Din of Battle.<br />Jove, with all his loudest Thunder,<br />When I'm vext, can't keep me under;<br />Yet so tender is my Ear,<br />That the lowest Voice I fear;<br />Much I dread the Courtier's Fate,<br />When his Merit's out of Date,<br />For I hate a silent Breath,<br />And a Whisper is my Death.<br />Jonathan Swift, (1667-1745)<br /><br />

Here's a new combo token - the +1 Raterskin We Lanter.  Can you figure out which 11 of the 2008 tokens goes into its construction?  Hints are available - all briberies considered.<br /><br />
