The following is a puzzle of mine, I'm hoping to test it out a bit. It will be for a 6 letter cryptex to find the key inside the cryptex allowing you to exit a door in an escape room of mine.

Puzzle for a 6 letter Cryptex

I am a well worded sentence,
With the intent to deceive.
Identify my title,
Only then can you leave.

    $\begingroup$ are you sure the family tag fits? it refers to "A puzzle centred around kinship, family ties, ancestry, relatives, blood ties and other family bonds", instead of the puzzle being used as a puzzle among a family. Is this the case? if not, please change the tag to more suitable ones. thanks! $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Apr 19 at 3:51

    $\begingroup$ Please check the tag wikis before using tags. Four of the five tags that you used do not apply to this question, and I'm not sure the fifth does as well. Tags are used based on the content of the puzzle itself, not based on the surrounding context. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Apr 19 at 4:30

Without seeing the Cryptex itself (to check which letters are available), my first guess would be

EXCUSE

I am a well worded sentence,  
With the intent to deceive.

An excuse is not the real reason for something you do, but it's usually socially acceptable in content and politely worded. (Because otherwise, why bother with excuses.)

Identify my title,
Only then can you leave.

One would usually use an excuse to leave, and "May I be excused" is a very polite way of asking if you are allowed to go.

I'd try "puzzle" and "riddle" if I had the cryptex in hand :-)
