Default In-game Riddles

Not sure if someone had posted this in the past, but I thought in-game riddles might be a fun thing to add.

Basically, when you reach a random encounter, you may have the option to answer a riddle rather than fight. If you choose to answer the riddle & get it right, then the reward & XP could be greater. If you don`t answer it right, then I suppose it could default to just a normal fight encounter.

The "riddle encounter" would be something uncommon so its more of a surprise incentive :-)

Any thoughts?

Cool idea, but I think it would get old over time, once you know the answers.

Depends on how many riddles are put in

Maybe instead of just riddles they can use trivia, then the DEVS can just use a Trivial Pursuit (or Buzz!) game

Well you see the problem I think with that is that the riddles would be fairly limited 'cause it'd have to be in-game related. Which means it'd take a lot of time to make all of those riddles. If you simple took a bunch of riddles our of books or articles..ect. You'd just be able to look them up online and never get a single one wrong. It's a good idea and would add a fun twist, but there's some flaws in it too. In my opinion.

You could use things out of the forums to make questions. That would get more people to use the forums atleast. I suppose you could still just look them up though.

Riddles?
Boss fights, reduces the enmy's HP with one if answered correctly.

Anyways, answers found through forums sound cool, but otherwise this seems a bit tough to make.

How about if riddles are only from certain humanoid type boss characters? If you get the answer correct, then you aren't charged an AP for the encounter and get the first attack. If you get it incorrect, then your opponent gets the first 2 attacks of the encounter.

Problem with Ridles is, that, since you have an Internetconnection, there is not much that one could know that you can not look up online. Between Google, Wikipedia and IMDB there is not much information on this planet that is not stored there.

Or your riddles would be insanely hard.
