Battlespire Riddles

19 February 2011

I thought it would be a useful idea to have a page devoted to solely the riddles in the game along with their solutions. The answers can be found in the Walkthrough pages but often you don't need or want any other information than the riddle's answer. The riddles aren't in any particular order.
