:D

The puzzle has several stages. First I had to find the key to translate the language of the dragons to get the riddle. But I'm missing the key to translate 'life' or any other answer back into it. I'm working on it!

Maybe Mookie knows the answer. I think Dwarves come stock with the Dragon language skill. :X

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I was fooling around on a MUD to avoid working and got hung up on this quest. :>

I do believe Sluggers is a dwarf, or at least he's one of the fairy little people.

If you look at the picture of Sluggers with the pointy hat, he's clearly a High Elf Wizard. I could have sworn you were a Dwarven Cleric. :*)

I was going to say Life and Death. But I couldn't see how we chose life, but yeah, I'm pretty sure that is what it is.

Choose life


Best Wham! reference I've seen in a while.
