No! Here is line three.
The maximum score is now three points.

Limerick Five:
If you dare to give this man a call
Know you’ll be dealing with a screwball.
He so often gets stuck

It's a silly guess but I'm thinking Ixion because it's a summon and the lore is based on a man who went mad 🤷‍♀️

I... I feel like this is gonna be a dumb guess if it’s wrong, but I know almost nothing of FF14. Is it Hildibrand Manderville?

Bingo!

If you dare to give this man a call
Know you’ll be dealing with a screwball.
He so often gets stuck
With his bottom ready to pluck
Like a vegetable ripened in the fall.

This is correct! :O

You score the maximum of five points for guessing with a single line.


Limerick Six:
There arrived a lady from afar
Whose presence seemed to mar.
She never truly dies
And her nipples have eyes.
For years she was displayed in a jar!

I have added all of the bonus threads in the first post for ease of access (listed under 'Previous Limericks'. These remain accessible until the end of this game, so if anybody would like to earn extra points in order to give themselves a boost then there are plenty of options to choose from.

Nice guesses, but incorrect.

This beast of ancient stock
Wouldn’t settle with eating the flock

Chocobo Eater?

Silly guess I know, but the whole not settling for eating the flock thing makes me think of this guy and his desire to eat the Angel of Valhalla... 🤷‍♀️

^^^ A plausible answer, but not this answer!

Here is line three for Limerick Seven! The maximum score is now three points.

Limerick Seven:
This beast of ancient stock
Wouldn’t settle with eating the flock
Instead it’ll engulf

Wild Saurian from FFXII?

Correct. That's three points.

Here is the complete Limerick Seven:
This beast of ancient stock
Wouldn’t settle with eating the flock
Instead it’ll engulf
The whimpering wolf
And extra levels it’ll unlock.


The theropod dinosaur Wild Saurian is a rare example of a monster in FF which 'eats' other monsters in the wild in order to increase its level. Hence the limerick.
