Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

For part 3, Arrows is capitalized, and, also, that could refer to the Wimbouldone(?) Wasps, and down in part 5, it mentions a gambler, wi=hich could be Ludo Baggman..

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

I love this! folks are thinking and I'm getting stoked!

ok, I think we can agree that the first 3 riddles make up the domain name. just remember however, that the second riddle refers to date and time as well, not just part of the domain name.

and kudos to chillybee for figuring out the Appleby Arrows for Part Three, and to Huffley_love for coming up with the idea about 4 and 5. on that note, I think we all concur that riddle 4 is the user name and riddle 5 is the password, both of which will need to be entered to gain access to the domain.

also remember that the post scriptum is not part of the five riddles. it refers to the five and what we need to do with them. so I think we need to discover the real purpose behind the post scriptum, especially as it refers to MuggleNet. is the reference to "a gambler's word" the word check? or is it a reference to Ludo Bagman? also, could Ludo Bagman be L? just another thought.

this is shiny, folks! let's keep the thoughts coming!

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

We've got, so far: cockatrice, D.A. galleons, Appleby Arrows/Wimbourne Wasps/???, Aberforth? and the only riddle I'm sure we've solved, with Veritas as the password once we figure everything else out.

But something I've noticed: All 3 of the first 3 riddles can refer to dates, or at least years.

For number 1, it could be 1792, the year that the cockatrice went on a rampage.
For number 2, it could be 10/15
For number 3, it could be the battle that was possibly referred to, the only problem is no set date was given:
(From Quidditch Through the Ages): "they are alleged to have taken their name from a nasty incident which occured during a match against the Appleby Arrows (!) in the mid-seventeenth century, when a Beater flying past a tree on the edge of the pitch noticed a wasps' nest among the branches and batted it towards the Arrows' Seeker..."

Hi L!

also remember that for number two it says to interchange the numbers. previously the idea came up that the date could really be 11/05, which is Guy Fawkes Day in England. and of course, Fawkes the Phoenix was name after Guy Fawkes.

as for the year in number three, it could be 1894, the year when shooting arrows from wands was banned when a referee was shot through the nose. as for when the Wasps adopted their name during a game against the Arrows, it only said mid-seventeenth century. however, as the Wasps were founded in 1312, the Arrows weren't founded till 1612, so said game may have only been a short while after the founding of the Arrows.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

This may seem out there, but we're kinda in the "everyone throw in ideas" phase.
I got Part 2 for my email, and i read the third line as "keep changing numbers HEEDED", as in "heed the numbers that change." I might be wrong/grammatically incorrect, but still just putting this in there.

Part 2 seems the only viable option for the date since the other numbers don't quite fit . The years in parts 1 and 3 could point towards the time, but they both end in the 90's.

So let's recap again:

www.cockatrice-fawkes?-bagman?.com
username: aberforth
password: veritas
Date: November 5th, 2008
Time: ??:??

I hope i compiled that right.
The last two parts of the domain name were "educated guesses". I used Fawkes because a lot of people think that the switched numbers lead to Guy Fawkes Day. I used Bagman because the P.S. mentioned gambling, and part three and the whole Arrows/Wasps thing.
There's still the first two lines of Part 2 that bug me:
No more than one is needed
For meetings clandestine;
We haven't figured out what that means yet. Have we?

Lets remember that the bagman isn't part of the domain, and also that the arrows clue refers to the Wasps.

I think we're in general agreement, or at least the only idea we've had so far, is the D.A. Galleons.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

I definitely agree that part two sounds like the D.A. Galleons. I personally don't think it has anything to do with actually changing the numbers to form a date... but that is just me.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

I also got the riddle about the brother, but I'm not sure if Aberforth is the right answer. It seems too obvious, and I can't connect him with any tickets. When are tickets ever mentioned? I can only think of for maybe the World Quidditch Cup. Unfortunately, I don't remember much about that.

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

Hey.... i'm new to this forum... and i've been reading up on this muggle quidditch 2.0 thing since a while and i believe that i have deciphered most of the riddles... i'll be posting what i have found out so far in the next post....

Part One:
Rooster and lizard
would in ancient days maim
three judgmental wizards
who managed the game

Meaning:
This could refer to the Cockatrice incident that took place in 1792 during the Triwizard Tournament, it attacked the 'three heads' of Hogwarts, Durmstrang, Beauxbatons. Note: Reference to Quidditch

Part 2:
No more than one is needed
For meetings clandestine
Keep changing numbers heeded
To discover date and time

Meaning:
Refers to Hermione's Protean Charm on the Fake Galleons for the D.A meetings. And, could relate to Guy Fawkes Day - 5th Nov.... time = ???

Part 3:
An ancient brigade, strong and true
In battle we gained our name
As deadly Arrows around us flew
Not a single man was slain

Meaning: refers to the match b/w the Wimbourne Wasps and the Appleby Arrows during the mid-17th century... it was during this match did the Wasps get their name when one of their beaters hit a wasp net towards the opposing seeker. Reference to Quidditch.

Part 4:
You seek to Name of the brother
Of he who guides this story's path;
Exchanging tickets with another
For relief from Ministry's wrath.

Meaning: This story does not refer to Harry Potter but the mystery of who is behind this Muggle Quidditch, let's assume Mr. 'L' is Ludo Bagman. His brother= Otto Bagman. Arthur Weasley had helped Otto out of a ministry problem with the Muggle Artifacts Office because of an unusual lawnmower. That's why Ludo arranged Arthur's tickets to the World Cup; for helping his brother. AGAIN QUIDDITCH REFERENCE.

Part 5:
Though buried right before your eyes
You may never have seen
A password hidden for the wise;
The truth that lies in between.

Meaning: V-E-R-I-T-A-S; as solved by previous members as well. Answer was given on mugglequidditch.com

Part 1:
Rooster and lizard

Meaning:
This could refer to the Cockatrice incident that took place in 1792 during the Triwizard Tournament, it attacked the 'three heads' of Hogwarts, Durmstrang, Beauxbatons. Note: Reference to Quidditch

Meaning: refers to the match b/w the Wimbourne Wasps and the Appleby Arrows during the mid-17th century... it was during this match did the Wasps get their name when one of their beaters hit a wasp net towards the opposing seeker. Reference to Quidditch.

Part 4:

Meaning: This story does not refer to Harry Potter but the mystery of who is behind this Muggle Quidditch, let's assume Mr. 'L' is Ludo Bagman. His brother= Otto Bagman. Arthur Weasley had helped Otto out of a ministry problem with the Muggle Artifacts Office because of an unusual lawnmower. That's why Ludo arranged Arthur's tickets to the World Cup; for helping his brother. AGAIN QUIDDITCH REFERENCE.

You may never have seen
A password hidden for the wise;
The truth that lies in between.

Meaning: V-E-R-I-T-A-S; as solved by previous members as well. Answer was given on mugglequidditch.com

So, basically, parts 1,3 and 4 of the riddle relates to Quidditch, part 5 is the password, part 2 is the date and time, which is slightly not finalized yet. The answer to who sent us the mail is mostly Ludo Bagman and as asked in part 4, his brother, Otto could be the username for something....

Re: Muggle Quidditch 2.0?!

Has anyone just attempted to use the ideas we've had to make a website?

like www.cockatrice.galleons.wasps.com

...fyi, that one doesn't work. just tried it. XD
And it doesn't work without the periods either.

I'm just wondering, so we can maybe see what others have tried. I've been googling some terms we've come up with, to see if I can find the site that way, but nothing's coming up...

Maybe adding it to the end of the website will work?

Tried that.

Mugglenet.com/cockatrice/galleons/wasps gives a "webpage cannot be found" page.

That is very possible! I hadn't thought of that. Does anyone think it may be significant though that "Name" is capitalized, or is that just at typing error?
