The following is a Fighting Fantasy Dungeoneer book conversion into the Age RPG system.

These are my rough paper notes from my personal conversion use. I decided to scan them to make them available to anyone interested.


1st statue riddle: Two beautiful maidens approach the village matchmaker to be matched. The matchmaker is impressed by their beauty, but even more impressed is she by the fact that they both look exactly alike.

The matchmaker asks each maiden where she lives, and their answers are the same; they live in the same house. She asks each who her father is, and their answers are the same; they have the same father. She asks for their birthdays, and they have the same birthday.

“Ah,” says the matchmaker. “You are twins.”

“No,” say the maidens. “We’re not twins.”

How can this be?


2nd Statue Riddle: I wonder as I wander: where am I?

I shed tears, yet I cannot cry,

I trek, but cannot walk, swim or fly,

I am born to die. Say, what am I?


3rd statue riddle: I am, I’m not. I visit young and old,

Some I make timid and some I make bold,

Unwise is the one who pokes fun at me.

Beware, for I am a shadow of thee.



1st Statue riddle answer: They are two of a set of triplets.

2nd statue answer: Cloud

3rd statue answer: Death
