One and halfscore, the posts are showing,
win, place, and show united is rejection as a marking;
the middle five of the whole, a type of setting,
the last eight is a man prone to writing.

Four in one, its middle two is a cannon booming,
with bursts of fire like a hundred stars dancing;
within that center is a country if you're looking,
a city you'll find,if you focus on the beginning.

Its first quarter is a letter with a greeting,
the next,a memory with one millennium missing;
then a duke,a prince or a king,
the last,an endless catch in the sport of fishing.

QUESTION: What is the word?

What Next?

I though A Chiromancer was someone who could predict when you were going to get back ache. Lol Good Riddle!!
Feb 27, 2003

Thanks a lot. I enjoyed solving most of your teasers too.

that was really hard ... probably because i'm younger than u guys (im guessing). didnt guess it, never heard the word, and *shame shame on me for this* used THESAURUS! lol Oo; GOOD RIDDLE!

Thanks. I guess I am old at 17. Braingle is such a help for young and old, don't you think?

Even after reading the hint and the answer, I still need a Thesauraus, a Dictionary and a translater. I would honestly like to preserve the brain of any person in this entire universe who can comprehend that riddle without looking at the answer! If I am going to spend precious hours of my life trying to solve something, I would like to know that I have at least some small chance of success!

oh my goodness! I tryed but in the end I gave up, looked at the hint but when I saw the length of it I decided just to admit defeat! Must of took you ares to think up that one. would be great for anyone who has got a genius mind & hours to spare

I didn't look up the word Chiromancer, but I looked up Griphook. It read: Progeny of Einsten.

Wow. That was HARD! I feel like I just gave my brain a workout. Never heard of the word *blushes* but a great riddle nonetheless.

This teaser is written in such a jumbled way that it's very unpleasant to read.

I read all of it a few times.
The hint didn't make any sense either

woah, that was ridiculously hard!
Oct 21, 2007

It was really very hard; I didn't get it, even after mulling over it a long time.
On the other hand, it was very well written and quite original!

Very interesting. Each portion of the riddle and the hint make sense, though it is very difficult to follow as the portions aren't separated. I enjoyed it. Thanks.
