Re: Praser 5 (Riddles)

I guess you are correct, but the game isn't responding back to it.
Maybe I do not know properly about the game

Re: Praser 5 (Riddles)

I have visited the game. So you were hoping that MIF members would give a few answers for you perhaps.

Looking at the way the game is explained, it would seem that a single word is expected.  So maybe the L word ?

And this may be a hint for riddle 1:

I shall happily watch your progress from afar, so do, please, keep me up to date with progress.
