Walking into the Three Broomsticks, you notice that all the lights have been dimmed, and the pub seems to be giving off a cave-like vibe, as blue-flame candles flicker eerily around bottles of firewhiskey. Madam Rosmerta is nowhere in sight, and as the murmuring of confused students begins to grow, a loud BANG! erupts, as a milky-white sign drops down over the bar. The sign says that it's Riddle Night, and that there are many prizes to be won for those who participate. A pub assistant can be seen handing out slips of parchment for all those interested in joining the game, and you take one as he passes.

There seems to be quite a few people willing to give this riddle thing a shot. None of that seems to matter, as you feel rather confident in your abilities to best everyone else. What could possibly go wrong?

TASK
This is a lock / unlock activity. At various times until November 30th, this thread will open for at least 30 minutes. A new riddle will be posted each round, in which you must answer correctly, and then post a riddle of your own in the same post. A new user may then answer that riddle while posting a new one themselves. This will continue until the thread is locked and the round is over. You may participate multiple times each round.
Everyone who posts a valid response and riddle each round will receive one ticket for the prize drawing.


RULES
- After the thread has been unlocked, you will have at least thirty (30) minutes to post in response to the given riddle.
- Once the first user posts a response to the given riddle and includes a new riddle, a different user must then respond to their riddle and post their own riddle.
- You do not have to create/write your own riddle to use.
- Everyone who responds with a valid entry will receive one ticket for the prize drawing.
- You can participate in as many rounds as you want, and post various times in each round, but you will only receive and maximum of one (1) ticket each round.
- If you have any questions, feel free to contact Nikky.
- This activity will run until November 30th. Afterwards, prizes will be randomized and drawn based on the amount of tickets you have earned.


PRIZES
Vernon's Doughnut + 20,000 Galleons + 2000 House Points
Dragon Tartare + 1000 House Points
Pumpkin Swirl Lollipop + 10,000 Galleons + 500 House Points

Round One:
Welcome to Round One of Ravishing Riddles! One user must successfully answer the riddle below, and post a new riddle with their answer. After the first person has posted, they need to wait for Madam Rosmerta to comment with whether or not the riddle is correct. Once this happens, a new user may answer the riddle the first person will have posted with their response to Rosmerta's riddle, and post a new riddle of their own. It is okay if riddle guesses are incorrect, and any wrong answers after the first riddle will still count as long as a new riddle has been posted with the answer.
This round will last at least 30 minutes. So what are you waiting for? Who can guess Rosmerta's first riddle?


Starting Riddle:
Quote:
A box without hinges, key, or lid, yet golden treasure inside is hid.
