Fun:** (1.99)
Difficulty:**** (3.18)



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?

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

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

o.o; 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! -tangerine- :P

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.

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

Posted by aPlatinum03/29/07

Posted by oddrey10/02/07
woah, that was ridiculously hard!

Posted by mosca10/21/07
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! :D

Posted by om12307/13/08

Posted by brains2beauty9606/15/12
