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.

    Are raffle tickets per-user or per-riddle? If you enter 8 riddles, do you get 8 tickets or 1? IMO it'd be more fair if people who submitted more riddles could get a better chance of a raffle prize, but it could also encourage spam.

    They are giving out, in a raffle, 21,300 turnips worth of items.
    If you win, you only get 75 turnips.
    If they only chose 50 winning riddles, they could give out 400 turnips to each riddle and still be giving out less turnips in value. They can even give out 200 turnips to 100 winning riddles, and people would be fine with it.

    So glad that the riddle contests will continue!

    Ah, fun! I like writing riddles. Why cap it at 4 accepted riddles per user? I wrote 7 for Aviar Cove and they were all accepted. It would be a shame to miss out on some good ones because of this.

    I've submitted one!

    Rythen (#8093) & @Corin It would be nicer if they gave items for winning and 75 turnips just to participants. The random rewards are worth more which is weird. I don't care about the monetary value, but a contest specific item would have been nicer than a couple of turnips. Or at least an useable amount of turnips would have been nice.

    Still entering though

  • Villager Promare (#26308) 11 Aug 2020, 10:48 am
    I do find it strange that the participation prizes are better than the actual prizes for winning, but I gave it a shot ^^
  • Villager AuraDragoness (#45872) 11 Aug 2020, 7:59 pm
    Question: on the submission form, in the "logic behind answer", is that where we put the answer to the riddle?
  • Villager moerune (#3444) 30 Aug 2020, 12:34 pm
