Realms Faire: Riddle Me This (Riddle #4)

It's time for the Realms Faire, an annual event originally created by M. Pax. This year I'm hosting Riddle Me This. Read the riddle. In the comments, make your guess. All correct responses will be entered in to win a daily prize. The daily contest will run until 8 AM EST of the next day (i.e. when the next riddle appears), and I will announce all winners on Wednesday, November 19.

The answer for Riddle #3:
Centaur


Riddle me this:
I am the shy seductress of the forest.
Oak trees gave my people our name,
but we encompass all trees now.
I walk with Artemis,
and yet cannot venture far from home.
What am I?

Today's correct responses will be entered in a drawing to win the ebooks
Thank you, Ellie, for donating two ebooks for today's prize!

Wood nymphs?

Christine Rains said...

A trickier one today. Dryad?

Mary Waibel said...

This is a tricky one. My first thought was dryad.

TBM said...

Hmmm, first thing that popped into my mind was dryad. But I don't know a lot about them.

M Pax said...

I would guess a dryad. Power to the wood nymphs. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Don't know. Everyone has say dryad or wood nymph. Fairy?

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Wood nymph is also my guess. No idea what a dryad is. Oh Master Fallon is getting told (off) in that excerpt.

Jeff Chapman said...

My guess is dryad. I wrote a story featuring dryads a few years ago.

Patricia Lynne said...

I'm not too sure. I have a few guesses, but given I've won a couple past days, I'm going to keep my mouth shut so others can get goodies. ;)

I feel like I should know this.

I love Ellie's writing.

You're a writer? Crool shoes. Me, too (kinda, sorta). I know for a fact, however, you gotta whole lotta intelligence behind those two ears, girl; thus, I wanna give you my finite existence: to intrinsically value the Great Beyond which I’ve learned to appreciate, to visualize the fundamental reality of infinity is why I‘m here for a teeny-weeny amount of time. Looky here...

Precisely why I had our ‘philanthropic + epiphany’ (=so much to give + vision): wanna see a perfectly cognizant, fully-spectacular, Son-ripened-Heaven?? … yet, I’m not sure if we're on the same page if you saw what I saw. Greetings, earthling. Because I was an actual NDE on the outskirts of the Great Beyond at 15 yet wasn’t allowed in, lemme share with you what I actually know Seventh-Heaven’s Big-Bang’s gonna be like: meet this advanced, bombastic, ex-mortal Upstairs for the most juvenile-lip-service, extra-groovy, secret-sauce-paradox, pleasure-beyond-measure, Ultra-Yummy-Reality-Addiction in the Great Beyond for a BIG-ol, kick-some-ass, party-hardy, robust-N-risqué-passion you DO NOT wanna miss the sink-your-teeth-in-the-smmmokin’-hot-deal enveloping, engulfing our catch-22-excitotoxins. Cya soon, girl…
