Straton's Hydra Riddles

First Hydra Riddle

“Four Hydra heads guard the gate

find the right one, but don’t be late

For only deepest darkness opens the door

to treasure no soul ever saw before

You need the sun and the White Hydra Head

True Blood and the Gold of the Dead

But beware, both blood and gold attract the Beast

Your ship it shall break, on your flesh it shall feast

the Weak will wither, the blood cannot hide

Gold and Ghosts will be your Guide”

Straton the Abstinent

Second Hydra Riddle

“Four Hydra heads guard the gate

Fat and Hunger, Fertility and Hate

Three for him, one was mine

From this to the Dead the Sun draws a line

Where line meets water, where air enters stone

Guarded by the black warrior’s blade and bones

Treasure no soul ever saw before

But only True Blood bypasses the door

Gold and Ghosts will be your Guide

the Weak will wither, the Blood cannot hide”

Straton the Abstinent

Third Hydra Riddle

“Four Hydra heads guard the gate

Seek the Sirens, or seal your fate

For the Beast will not allow to leave

every witless worm, every thoughtless thief

only the strong may survive, the blood cannot hide

Gold and Ghosts will be your Guide

Travel the tunnels, discover the Dead

grab the gold, gaze upon the White Hydra Head

Greed is good, more leads to more

Treasure leads to treasure no soul ever saw before”

Straton the Abstinent
