    I believe Zephs is simply the act of dying in human form, perhaps to an invasion. The loss is humantity and the ring of sacrafice could prevent that loss (though it is fragile)

    While Rynns is a bit murkier and I'm on painkillers but the shield of ashen knights, Crystals, Chaos, Gall. Old tombs. The caves where you fight seath, the bed of choas the four kings who sougt to usurp(that's a lot of Gall!) and the tomb of nito Are the location you aquire lord souls.

    These Brightly Burning souls are seen one last time literally being "dropped" into the lord vessel in order to open the path to the kiln.

    I dont know if Jansports was answering Zephryl's riddle or not but it gave me this idea.

    Is the answer obtaining the lord souls to fill up the lordvessel?
    Or opening the kiln?

    I dont think that has been said yet.

    Some very good answers though~ It's not Phalanx, or those horrible bastard Skeletons, or the Stray Demon.

    No offence bro but DianaDieHard made this post and she is asking for you to reveal the answer sooo...i think in all respects you now have to reveal the answer

    *Shrugs* Not like people don't have a second Riddle to work on if they don't like mine~

    But is this you giving up?~ You're the last person who was working on it (And who didn't want me to reveal the answer) so if you're giving up I'll be happy to reveal the answer~



    Also, it's not dying in Human Form, or putting Souls into the Lordvessel/opening the Kiln.

    what zephryl said sounded sort of odd to me:
    Zephryl wrote:It's not something specifically about the Great Hollow.
    its like hes implying that it could be related or is in the great hollow but is not a special trait to it.
    hmmmm

    Good thinking~

    Also, reposting the riddle and hints so people don't have to go looking for it

    "A frightful shock, that sudden loss
    The process started, a ring could stop.
    A fearsome trial, though not a boss
    Take care you must, lest more you drop."

    Hint #1:
    The "Ring" mentioned, is a fragile thing.

    Hint #2:
    The answer to the Riddle can be found in an optional, but popular, part of the game.

    This is another hint that was said wayyyyy back on page 6.

    This is such a good riddle big grin

    Honestly, that doesn't matter that much to me.
    The experience of trying to figure it out is the good part.

    No matter what the answer is, the amount of thinking and studying of the DkS lore I've done because of this riddle is the equivalent of going to some sort of DkS academy and getting a degree in DkS. big grin

    So don't worry about the answer not being good enough or anything. It's going to be so obvious I'm sure. I can't wait to find out thought.

    this got me thinking again
    Zephryl wrote:The "Ring" mentioned, is a fragile thing.
    putting the quotes around it probably implies that it is not an equipable ring because it would have just been written: "The ring mentioned is fragile" like the RoFaP ring so my guess is its not equip able at all.

    ok, it looks like Im the last one who wants to try and figure it out.
    I suggest having a deadline for the riddle.
    How about the answer will be revealed on Thursday morning at noon (world clock time)
    That way I, or anyone else will have 2 full days to figure it out.
    Sound good to everyone?

    I have no idea when that would be for me, but I'll post the answer roughly 48 hours from the time of this post.

    @Samurai
    Just checked, and I can't find a post from you saying you were giving up... Not that it really matters now lol!

    Very well.
    an unskilled or unlucky player might need more then 1 ring to stop this process.

    Okay, since I'm going to be giving out the answer to my Riddle tomorrow (Provided nobody solves it before then) I think people have a choice...

    Choice 1) We use Rynn's riddle as the "Official" riddle, and solve hers before any more get posted

    Choice 2) I post the new Riddle I made, in the hopes that one gets solved.

    Choice 3) We descend into a world of chaos and anarchy, slowly sectioning off the survivors of the world into small societies who worship their favourite Riddle's as Gods, before inevitably descending into war until only one remains.
