Mystery In Therulerania
Mystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
One day, while mining in a cave some people came across a dirty note. Upon examination, they found it was a clue to where to find a treasure chest, full of rubber chickens. The clue said this:
"A treasure of rubber chickens
Not a single rubber hen
In a secret spot near a light
Guides those in cloak of night
Near the shore the light be
Near the light a big shady tree
Under the tree is where the treasure be"
Instantly, Trot knew where the treasure lay, and he would claim it this very day. Where was the treasure hidden?
It was under the tree near the lighthouse, here is why:
Lines 3, 4, 5:
These three lines can tell you about the lighthouse. A lighthouse guides ships with light so they don't crash. Lighthouses are usually near the shore.
This tells you there is a tree near the lighthouse that has the treasure buried under it.

|Great teaser! I enjoyed this one. But... I gave up on this one way to easily than I do on others. It just comes to show that it's a good riddle!|

| What was the point of this? I liked that it was well written, but the obviousness makes me want to throw up. Could you make it any more simpler?|
Nov 09, 2004
|A good balance of crypticness and mystery. Very well written |
Dec 03, 2004

Dec 06, 2004

Dec 20, 2004

Dec 24, 2004
|Ridiculously easy. |
Jan 01, 2005
|very easy!the most obvious sentence is "Guides those in cloak of night"|
Jan 02, 2005
|that was so easy that it was pointless |
Jan 03, 2005
|well written, but really easy and never says that there is a light house!!!|
Jan 05, 2005

Jan 12, 2005
|This was well written. Good job!!! |

|Cardshark, maybe you should write teasers of your own, not dupes, I just reported your dupe make a teaser before you dump on other\'s|
Jan 26, 2005
|Sure Chosh.....ok......Trot will go through the long process of getting a new teaser submitted that is more challening then this one JUST FOR YOU!|
Jesus....Im sorry for being short with you, but the way people say a teaser is easy on this site is unreasonably unfair. I can understand you saying something such as "This teaser was a little to easy for me"
But to be like "THIS WAS THE EASIEST TEASER EVER! MAKE THEM HARDER!" or something like that is just rude in my opinion. But not like what I say matters......
Good teaser....it was a little challenging for me. But I finally got the answer!

|that was a good one! |
Feb 04, 2005
|Easy ones are good on occasion. Especially when I have been trying to some in the Math section.|
Feb 04, 2005
|Sorry for the typo. That should have been "to do......" |
Feb 18, 2005
|I little bit TOO easy. Maybe try making the clues less obvious.|
Mar 08, 2005
|That was a very easy teaser, however, I agree with Rabid- easy one's are still good. No reason to jump on people for wasting 10 seconds of your life! |
Well written teaser!
Mar 12, 2005

|i'm sorry, i'm blonde so you'll have to work with me - what on earth do rubber chickens have to do with it?|
Jun 01, 2005
|*sigh* ok, fine, i've now seen the bit about the treasure being made up of rubber chickens - if i'd seen that in the first place the teaser would have made a lot more sense!|
Sep 14, 2005
|That was the first one I've ever gotten! Thank You!!!!!!! |

|Sometimes i am amazed at the lack of consideration so many Brainglers can show towards a teaser and it's submitter. What puzzles me more is, the same people the critique are also the same that never bother to work and submit something of their own.|
Please, for the sake of the site, the teaser, the submitter, the work involved by so many to get these through the system and, last but not least, for the sake of common sense! Do not put someone down for the fact that YOU do not like a teaser, or for the fact that YOU find it easy. Your oppinion is likely to change if you read it again but, the comments remain.
I am sorry for my long comment, Trot, but i can't help but voice my oppinion when i see such rudeness in comments. This is a good one and, very well written. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, keep them coming.

|Just out of curiousity, shouldn't this go in the riddles section?|
Mar 04, 2006
|Oh yeah...This should go in the riddles section...Hmm. Anyways, good teaser! Very easy, which is nice for those who aren't so good at riddles. Like me. But I got this one which makes me feel good! |

|whats the rubber chicken got to do with it|
May 03, 2006
|The 'Rubber Chickens' are to the FM what Da Vinci Code was the Priory of Sion. Who built these 'lighthouses'? How curious that the chickens would be buried under a tree near a lighthouse. Isn't such a hidden burial spot reserved for only members the highest of order of builders? Easy? Don't kid yourself. Or do kid yourself, it's so much easier and safer. Good Teaser...said with a wink. |

|i didn't get the answer...it was pretty cool|

|Well if it was so easy then I guess I'm a dope today! I thought the light was the moon...|
Was sure he would stand under the tree by the shore in the full moon and wait for the moonlight to come through the tree branches to reveal the location!
Sep 20, 2007

"Under the tree is where the treasure be."
