You're a bit slow, aren't you? Fine, fine, I'll give you some more hints.

First, remember, for our dear first five monsters, you need to fulfill a special requirement to kill them during the day. I won't tell you their specific requirements yet--you haven't even figured out who they are, I bet!--but I will tell you this:

If I was a monster so repulsive even I wanted to stop myself, I would need ... before I could stop.

And now, for the identities! Here are some clues for you to figure out!

The Laughing Monster's powers as plain as you can see
Are what he feels and what he is and who he longs to be

The Apathetic Monster never more wants for a sword
With speed unparalleled, it'll find its enemies gored

From blood comes the fire in the Crying Monster's veins
'Tis utterly powerless otherwise, or so the world does deign

Dearest Screaming Monster, what curses do you see?
Whose puppet strings direct this terrifying prophecy?

The Growling Monster on borrowed time lives on
Though borrowed time is stopped once it is called upon

((Ruana will not be replying to this post, but you can reply to each other and use it to try and figure out who's who.))

[No theorizing to be had here - just a warning.]

There are a pair of monsters that work together - one with a red mask, the other with one that is golden-green. They fight together, and if one is attacked, the other will become enraged to the point putting itself into harms way to protect the first.

The golden-green one can create magic circles various surfaces which will then explode, and possesses enough strength to break through fortifications without being hindered.

I do not know if this behavior is common to the creatures Ruana has created for her game. Needless to say, extreme caution is advised, especially if one encounters this pair while alone.

He feels strong, perhaps? Or, if it is the same one we encountered, he feels... magic? The riddles seem to focus mostly on the kinds of special abilities those who have been transformed might have or where they draw them from.

It seems to imply in the list that there are three powers.


Ruana suggested that the emotions of the person affect what type of monster they become.
Perhaps that emotion becomes a power?
It appears to state as much for the laughing monster, at the very least. Can't say for certain on the others.


I might be thinking too literally about this.
Do you have any further thoughts on the matter?

Is it implying the Growling Monster can stop time? Who here do we know can do that?

*There has to be more than one person, there has to be more than one person, there has to be more than one person...

.....but is Lucifel really "Growling" material? The thread above did come to the conclusion that the monsters' emotions are significant...*

It's not implying anything. It's saying it can do that. I fought it the first night and it was able to beat me because of it. But I don't know who'd be able to do something like that. The only people I knew who could... they're not here and they never were.

"Borrowed time" could mean any of us because we all only have a year left now, but if these clues are supposed to help us figure it out, maybe it means someone whose life was going to be cut short whether they were here in the Tower or in their own world?

So if we can make a list of people who fit each trait, and see where they overlap...

[personal profile] neverbeamemory 2013-06-21 07:29 am (UTC)(link)
Could also mean someone who is dead in their own world?

Don't forget the earlier clue, about powers being one of their own and one of someone closest to them...
