  • $\begingroup$ A mistake was edited, I can't believe missed it before posting but it's too late now lol. The answer is still the same, just the little 'easter-eggs' I added wouldn't have worked without the change. $\endgroup$ Jun 30, 2017 at 15:06
  • $\begingroup$ I read @Menmonic 's comment as a response to Rand al'Thor's instead of to the OP. It still works.... $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


Are you

A Metal

The first letters of each Capiltalized word after 'I am' word is a Chemical symbol of metal, or for the final clue carbon, which is found in alloys which this puzzle also extends to.

I am Austerity.

Au = Gold


Ir = Iridium

Curation in a Snowstorm.

Cu = Copper , Sn = Tin

Then combining Cu and Sn give the alloy Bronze


Mn = Manganese

the Schism

Th = Thorium, Sc = Scandium

Curiosities in the Allusive

Cu = Copper, Al = Aluminium

Then combining Cu and Al give the alloy Aluminium bronze


Co = Cobalt


Re = Rhenium

Ferocious Chaos

Fe = Iron, C = Carbon possibly giving Iron + Carbon = Steel

The title 'A Rare Transition'

Relates to the Rare Earth and Transition metals

  • $\begingroup$ Some of the answers aren't quite right, but are very close (and I've changed one part). The lines with two 'words' also form a new 'answer'. $\endgroup$ Jun 30, 2017 at 14:56
  • $\begingroup$ I'm trying to solve the lines with double capitalized words - not Certain :) $\endgroup$
