Riddle of Yorn

The Riddle of Yorn is a riddle used as a test to see if someone is worthy of entering the Pyramid of the Dead Eye God. It is given to Vella by Dead Eye Courtney and Dead Eye Dawn, who stand guard outside the pyramid. The druids later reveal that the riddle was actually just something their friend Becky Yorn told them.

The riddle reads as follows:

You always take us down
When we are in our prime.
Devour my sweet rewards
Yet I'll return in time.
A child of mine will rise
Out of his rotten bed.
Up from a hidden pit
Long after I am dead.
What am I?
