These riddles were originally written as clues for a treasure hunt event run by KEF. Each of the eight clues indicates a location. Contestants were given a book with all the clues at the start, and they had to visit as many locations as possible in the given time. The winner was the one finding the most locations.
If you enjoy riddles, then test your knowledge of UO geography and see how many you can solve. Try not to get hung up on number seven as I believe it may only have existed on Chesapeake, and it isn't there any more anyway.
