Welcome to the Pitcher Digital Freehold
I'm so glad you could make it; I've been expecting you.
Come in, have a seat, stay a spell
Spring is here, finally, and that means spring renovations.
The privacy screen behind the hot tub had seen better days. The Wisteria, while beautiful and shady, had torn apart the cedar lattice, and this was the spring to do something about it. It took a couple of days to get prepared, but I tore down the old lattice, shifted the Wisteria, and put up new lattice.
Welcome, Seeker. I am the Potentate of the Rose.
In this challenge, I will roll five dice, and show you their top faces. To pass, you must deduce and tell me the weight of the roll, for three consecutive rolls.
I am permitted to assist you in a limited way: I can tell you these three things:
- I can tell you that the name of this challenge is Petals around the Rose,
- I can tell you that the name is very important, and
- I can tell you the weight of any roll of the dice
Should you deduce the secret correctly, I caution you to keep the manner of your success to yourself, lest other Seekers learn the secret unearned.

I sit alone in the shadows. A table reserved for one, where the light is subdued and the music insistent, obscuring my business without meddling with it. A waitress, young and sleek, slides by every so often, looking over but never approaching unless I beckon. I sit with my back to the wall, my glass off to one side, not far from my right hand, but not so close as to deliberately invite a sip of the 30 year old Speyside single malt Scotch that patiently waits within it.
I've had a bit of experience in planning a vacation for an extended family, and let me tell you, it takes a lot of co-ordination and discussion.
So, when the subject came up about planning a vacation for Terry's extended family (son & daughter, father, brothers & sisters & their spouses, nieces & nephews, significant others), I stepped away from the task. Mostly.
