This previously existed somewhere else; I moved it to General Discussion.
As some of you may have noticed, I have been posting riddles in my signature. Here I will collect the old ones. Please post answers in PMs to me rather than in the thread.

Current RiddleNo new riddle yet, but I will release one sometime in the future.

(This is legit. This is not some cleverly hidden puzzle disguised as the lack of one.)

Solution will be revealed when 10 people send me a PM with the correct answer & explanation

Past Riddles
In case you are not aware, ROT13 means to replace each letter with the letter 13 characters forward or backward in the alphabet. So M = 13, which would go to 13+13 = 26 = Z; A = 1, + 13 = 14, = N; F -> S... "MAFIASCUM" would become ZNSVNFPHZ.
Spoiler: Riddle 003
So, without a question, at twilight, a werewolf is stronger than three...
What is the next word? (A) villagers (B) innocent (C) townies (D) humans
(This is not subjective. The answer is exactly one of the choices. You must also submit a reason. It will be rejected if the reason is wrong even if the answer is correct.)

Although, as someone pointed out, "This is not subjective" ended up being a bit inaccurate. What I meant was "the answer does not depend on fuzzy intuition, there is one answer that is definitely right, and the other three are definitely wrong".

Did you solve it? Count the number of letters in each word: So = two, without = seven, a = one, question = eight, at = two, ...
Those numbers spell out my username which is the decimal expansion of e. The next word would have to have 9 letters, and the only choice that does is "villagers".

Spoiler: Riddle 002 (updated)
A rich man was murdered during a storm that knocked the power out. Everyone had alibis: The maid said she was washing dishes, the cook said he left before it occurred, the wife said she was on the computer on mafiascum.net, and the butler said he was reading the newspaper. Whodunnit?

Spoiler: Riddle 001
What is a word four letters long, but is made up of three, sometimes is spelled with nine letters, rarely consists of six and never has five?

the villagers riddle was extremely obtuse and only works if the person made the association with the last riddle. NOT GOOD.
