Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

Thanks epeter29! You got as far as I did, thanks for putting them together. We can do this!

The domain part is definately a website, and the password Veritas will get us access when we figure out the URL.

I assume all of the clues together will give us the URL!

Someone on one of the other sites said this ....

No more than one is needed
For meetings clandestine;
Keep changing numbers heeded
To discover date and time.

Numbers heeded: 10/15
Change them and one of the dates is 11/05-Guy Fawkes day, Fawkes like fawkes the phoenix,

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

oh, that's good. I'd read about Fawkes being named such in reference to Guy Fawkes, burning in death but rising from the ashes. a celebration to commemorate Parliament not being burned down.

but does that mean that the date is now 11/05? seeing as 10/15 was posted on the original site and that site has been compromised, that date could no longer have any meaning, other than the numbers. so, assuming Guy Fawkes Day is the new date (and how appropriate that would be), we're still left with the time.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

I think we are looking for a word to make up the domain name,

like the sphynx riddle in the book, where the different syllables made up the answer.

The different answers will make up the domain.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

"First think of the person who lives in disguise,
Who deals in secrets and tells naught but lies,
a SPY
Next tell me what's always the last thing to mend,
The middle of middle and end of the end?
the letter D
And finally give me the sound often heard,
During the search for a hard-to-find word.
the sound is ERRR
Now string them together, and answer me this,
Which creature would you be unwilling to kiss?"
SPY+D+ERR equals SPIDER

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

I have "A gambler's word, the safest bet..." That seems to me to be referring to a particular word.
And if we need a password for the domain, we'll probably need a user ID. The only lead I have on that is this "L" character that signed the email....any ideas?

Don't know who L is, and I searched a few sites with lists of gambling terms, but couldn't find one that said a safe bet.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

L may or may not have anything to do with what we're trying to figure out. I think it's simply a code name as he/she stated in the email that they thought they were being electronically tapped. so of course, said person wouldn't reveal their true name. although, as you said, a user name may be needed. so we may indeed have to figure out who L really is.

as for the post script, the "word" may be a reference to a link on MuggleNet, something to do with a "gambler".

and I remember that riddle now, hpredhead. thanks. that may very well be the kind of thing we need to do.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

I read somewhere that a safe bet is sometimes called a lock. So maybe that just means we have to unlock the clues?

L directed me to this page specifically, so I expect he is monitoring it.
Hi L!

Also, the clues about Veritas being the password and the Cockatrice were pretty obvious once you thought about it, so I think that the other ones must be the same.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

yea guys sorry i didnt give you a riddle order number for mine but my email didnt contain any kind of indication as to what order that piece fell into the whole thing.

Also

You seek the name of the brother
Of he who guides the story's path;
Exchanging tickets with another
For relief from Ministry wrath.


could possibly be refering to aberforth.... just a thought, im trying to think of brothers in the whole story line and nothing seems to quite fit.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

so for part four, i just had a brain wave...

you seek the name of a brother
of he who guides the story's path
exchanging tickets with another
for relief from the ministry's wrath

so all i can think of is Aberforth (dumbledore's brother)
when i put the whole thing together, i thought of how aberforth got Sirius's mirror from Mundungus, then kept an eye on harry, and sent dobby to help them out of the manor and away from Voldemort, who was then the "head" of the ministry.
so maybe it has somthing to do with aberforth?
or maybe im just crazy...

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

If it's any help, and it likely isn't, veritas means truth, so the use of the word truth in that verse indicates you're likely correct about it. And the rest of your ideas sound wonderful too.

As for Part Three, I was thinking of the statues in the school too, so I'm with you on that. I thought of every other force I could think of, but nothing came to mind where nobody died, per se.

And the Brother could easily be Aberforth. He avoided the Ministries wrath about the goats, didn't he? And his brother, Dumbledore, did guide the story in his own way.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

An ancient brigade, strong and true
In battle we gained our name.
As deadly Arrows around us flew,
Not a single man was slain.

I think part three refers to the appleby arrows as in the quidditch team. As the word Arrows start with a capital letter. They are also an ancient brigade as they were founded in 1612 and were banned from shooting magicall arrows from their wands in 1894 by the department of magical games and sports.

Did it say who they played against? It seems to me like it is the someone(s) the arrows was shooted at that is the one(s) we are supposed to find.

That's exactly what I thought, Morning Star!

Here is something else I've been thinking,

Since the clue about the brother doesn't say which part it is, I don't think it is part of the domain name at all, I think it is something else.

The team that played against the Arrows are the Wimbourne Wasps.

The Appleby Arrows' fans used to shoot arrows from their wands whenever their Chasers scored. However, this was banned in 1894 after the referee (Nugent Potts) was hit.

The Arrows are the rivals of the Wimbourne Wasps (a team which Ludo Bagman played for) but their most famous game was in 1932, when they defeated the champions, the Vrasta Vultures, in a sixteen-day match.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

I dunno how relevant this will end up being, but we all seem to just being throwing ideas out.

In response to the "gambler's word, the safest bet" my first thought was check...how in texas hold em poker, you check in order to see the next card without having to risk any money.

Problem is I don't really see how it fits. It's kind of looking like an errant thought right now.

Also, some parts refer to a domain and some don't.

I think it's important to know exactly which ones refer to the domain, becuase I'm definitely thinking we'll get a web domain when we put it all together.

So, parts 1, 2, and 3 of the riddle are the parts about domain, right?

...and if so, maybe the answer to 4 will be the username we're looking for to go with the password that was mentioned in 5?

Thats a definate possibility.

If you look closely at that clue, it its the brother of the person who led the story, the brother didn't lead the story himself.

Also, I can't think of any instances in the book regarding tickets, except Hagrid telling Harry to stick to his ticket, and the tickets to the World Cup.

Maybe it is talking about how aberforth told the death eaters that the patronus was his??

Ludo Bagman played for the Wimbourne Wasps and he's a gambler. maybe a connection? i don't know if that'll be any help.
