I have bought a game card for a friend for his birthday. One of those cards that comes with a code that you enter for in-game currency, but I can't just let him have it without messing with him a little. I've created a somewhat simple cipher I believe and wanted to get some feed back if my riddles for figuring out the cipher are easy enough for an average person to solve without TOO much trouble.
Riddles are as follows:
I am the authority of these lands
'Tis my job to protect them, and enforce their rules
To all who may choose to enter my domain
Obey these rules you must.
If I think you may not be following these rules
A set of tests I will give you
Sing these simple 1, 2, 3s
And maybe you will pass.
But to sing them simply as they are
Would be an easy task
So to test you truly we must alter them
Sing them end to start to pass my first test.
If you found my first test easy
Then hopefully my next will be too
Now that you know my song in altered form
Let's mix it up again!
Last time 'twas but back to begin
This time though will be a bit more tricky
Sing my song till you are past the point of no return
Then start the count from there to 1 again.
Now if you've passed my tests and tricks
My code should be quite a simple one
To claim your reward, simply apply your skills below
And onward you may go.
