Congratulations Dmitri, you have kept your title as Reigning Champion in the Hall of Riddles, and now for the award that goes beyond the Hall's boundaries!
As today's champion, you have two choices for prizes.
#1. you get to name the subject of an entire post we must publish on the blog.
#2. You get to name the creatures featured in our closest Weekend Disaster Post or Sunday Fiasco posts.
Choose wisely.
And great work Sarah! It was almost a tie but Dmitri got to the Bonus Riddle first. But its all good, right? Please don't TP our blog...please...
Too bad for all you others who didn't get a chance at the Riddling Crown! Tune in next week for another Riddling Derby!


  1. As the three-time champion of the Riddling Derbies, I think I'll step back from next Derby and let someone else receive the Riddling Crown.

    And as the champion of this Riddling Derby, I will choose the first prize option—and the title I choose is A Letter From Smok, To Be Circulated Among His Uncles. If that's okay with you.

  2. Yep it's okay. It's great! Time for some unrestrained Draconian fun! Congratulations again on your victory.
