The riddle question itself can be up to a paragraph or as short as a sentence.
Maximum length is 8 lines. It can rhyme or be succinctly worded, the choice is yours.

For riddles in Louise Hill, we'll be looking for thematically fitting riddles, so riddles related to farming, temperate meadows and hills, vegetables, produce, and the NPC’s of the town, etc will have an advantage. We judge based on cleverness of subject matter and writing flow!

FAQ
How do I write a Dappervolk style riddle?
It is easiest to craft a riddle by going backwards from the answer you first decide on. Here is a link to the wiki that explains the symbolism of each virtue in more detail: https://dappervolk.fandom.com/wiki/Adventuring#Riddles

Do you have any tips on how best I can get my riddle selected?
Things that factor into our judging process are the uniqueness of the answer, how easy it is to guess (try to avoid using words that allude directly to the answer), if the riddle makes sense, and how well a riddle is written.

Can I use existing riddles found on the internet?
Plagiarism is against the rules, please write your own riddles! We cannot use creative property made by other parties on Dappervolk without permission from the actual creators. Plagiarism found on any of your riddles will cause all entries submitted by you within this contest to be disqualified.

    prizes are super disappointing, can you even buy anything with 75 turnips? hope thats raised bc ppl deserve more than that
  • Villager Goobie (#5601) 31 Jul 2020, 3:56 pm
    rewards seem a little bit on the meh side, lol.
  • Villager Lyu (#1422) 31 Jul 2020, 3:57 pm
    I'm with 18108 on this one. Feels weird to offer 75 turnips as a price. Would make more sense to be 200, which is the cost of one item from pai's shop (or will be next month with the new premium item mechanics)

    No more riddles please.
    I'm already confused by the current amount...
    Too many are too similar and some even have the same answer...
    The answers are too vague for this.

  • Villager SPACEMOTH (#25414) 31 Jul 2020, 4:09 pm
    Ooo! I might have to have a go at this. Even if it's just to enter the premium account badge raffle...
