I am something you may say or do,|
to test a hero and showup the fool.
Wizards know me and monsters too,
My questions entertain and so will you,
if you use me as a Dungeon tool.
What am I?

rolling thunder the only sound.
Two braced where they may sit,
always ready for the final hit.
What are we?
I can flood great rivers with my tears,
my sorrow marks the passage of years.
Yet the ideal mother and perfect wife, *
my domain is magic, nature and life.
Born from the union of earth and sky, **
protector of people, but after they die.
Who am I?
A bearded man some may see,
before they get a closer look at me.
I have three rows of wicked teeth,
on flesh and bone I like to feast.
My voice a trumpet for all to hear,
my lion's claws strike great fear.
I may have horns or maybe wings,
depends upon the bard that sings.
The size of lion or perhaps a horse,
I devour all in just one course.
My greatest weapon is my tail, *
a missile launcher and a flail.
What am I?
The sport of kings and decider of wars.
My numbers many and count in scores.
More then a few heroes I have blessed,
gathering around me in sweet contest.
To prove themselves from far or near, *
by finding an eye that can shed no tear.
What am I?
