My friend made this riddle and I think it’s pretty well made with lots of components, so here it is:
Look there Is treasure Here in Its purest Form The large Key is Here In front Of Your Face found In Moments, Used only After… The start of its passage Begins below the entrance With the number of lines To find the treasure Measure your happiness And theirs And write it down But not with numbers As the first is one But Wait- They are listening So reverse its path From whence it came Now place it in a box Of four and four For there you’ll find the treasure’s core … Now look across See the joining line In the distance For there lies the key For what is hidden. So, given these clues, what does the following text say? PJFOIHIHFIHIHIIHNNQDRVKHK
The third stanza is first.
Focus on where the capital letters are.
Beware of the red herring.
Look at a keyboard for the third stanza.
Solve the riddle in this order: 3rd stanza, 1st & 2nd stanzas, then the rest.
Look across the infinite sea for the last stanza.
Hint #7: Big(ger) Hint!
Count the number of words in the first 2 stanzas, and the letters in the hidden message. Now, hint #2 looks interesting...
