The Riddle of Thorns: The Final Chapter
Four thousand backers. Half a million dollars. Four thousand downloads of the print and play. A hundred creative contributions. Four days to go.
These are really good numbers, and we thank you from the bottom of our ebb-infused hearts for helping us reach them. You folks are the best.
If you're in Seattle, come play Thornwatch with us on Sunday at Bellevue's Mox Boarding House. If you can't make that, tune into these broadcasts with me on Back It!, with Mike K & me on Ludology, and with Rodney & me on Saving Throw.
Okay, let's hit this puzzle thing.

When you know the answer, type it in here, using only lowercase letters and spaces as usual. Then you will have exposed the darkest secret of the Thornwatch. Do so, and the forest shall know your name.
First, here are the final versions of the riddles that lead to four lines of the poem, linked in their headlines to the websites for their answers.
All of that may help you with this.
Good luck with that, Thornwatchers. And please, no spoilers in the comments.
