Worldsmyths birthday fun thread!
« on: June 02, 2017, 05:56:41 PM »
So I thought it might be fun to have some activities! I've tried to do different areas and hopefully less google-able things. Of course the main theme is fantasy, and I tried not to do too much... so here it is!

Each activity has points, they'll be pointed out with the heading, and obviously the idea is to get as many points as you can. The person who gets the most points wins. In case of a tie there will be a tie breaker question or something, because there can be only oneeee.

So, let's begin.



Wordsearch


Nice and simple ;)
(so she says)

71 points can be made from this, plus two bonus points. Bonus points?! :o
There are two words hidden in there which I found making the answer sheet and I thought they were hilarious to add in :P I won't tell you what the word is (cause that'd be too easy) but instead I shall give you a clue.

Word 1: A beast/creature of fable who resides in the snowy mountains
Word 2: I have a sword and I am going to _____ you!


Please find the wordsearch in the attachments :P


Riddles

Inspired by Bilbo and Gollum, and of course straight out of fantasy, here are some riddles for you to solve. Each riddle is worth 3 points, so you can get 24 points from this section.

1.

You eat something you neither plant nor plow.
It is the son of water, but if water touches it, it dies.


2.

A serpent swam in a silver urn
A golden bird did in its mouth abide
The serpent drank the water, this in turn
Killed the serpent. Then the gold bird died.


3.

Turn us on our backs
And open up our stomachs
You will be the wisest of men
Though at start a lummox


4.

Bury deep,
Pile on stones,
My mind will always
Dig up them bones


5.

It occurs once in every minute
Twice in every moment
And yet never in one hundred thousand years.


6.

It can be said:
To be gold is to be good;
To be stone is to be nothing;
To be glass is to be fragile;
To be cold is to be cruel.
Unmetaphored, what am I?


7.

There is not wind enough to twirl
That one red leaf, nearest of its clan,
Which dances as often as dance it can.


8.

What has roots as nobody sees,
Is taller than trees,
Up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?

I'm terrible at riddles but I have one I know and one I'll guess!

Riddle 5: M (the letter)
Riddle 8: A mountain? (I mean they technically grow so I'm not sure but I feel like I've heard a similar riddle before?)

The first one bugs me because I feel like I should know it :o

Anyway.

Film 6 ...The Wicked Witch of the East?
Film 7 Those are the Narnia kids right? Peter, Lucy, Susan, and... um... Edward? Maybe? Probably not?
Film 9 *embarrassed* without looking I'm going with Number 17 Privet Drive?
Film 10 Stag!
Film 13 Uh. He's a fawn. Or a satyr? He's played by James McAvoy. Mr.... someone. *sigh*
Film 15 Weasleys' Wizarding Wheezes

TV 1 Charmed
TV 2 Piper, Phoebe, and Paige (or Pru depending on season!)
TV 3 Game of Thrones
TV 6 Because they saw someone blown up by a rigged apple once D:
TV 8 Once Upon a Time
TV 9 Um chakrams maybe? They're round blades o.o
TV 11 his mother!
TV 12 Chinese! (Do I need to know which one? Not sure if Cantonese or Mandarin!)
TV 13 I only really remember it starts with an E! Maybe Enochian?

Fantasy 1 Guessing a dragon?
Fantasy 7 Wuxia!
Fantasy 9 faeries! (or fairies depending on author!)

That's the best I've got without googling/looking it up by alternate means! Although I'm not sure if the greek legend brought to life one for TV is supposed to be Hercules or no...? Lots of Greek legends get brought to life on TV >< His name is maybe... Kevin... someone or other.... Sorbet? Something?
