I'm going to copy/paste the results from Rogue Riddle 997 here for Aaron, in the event that some of you didn't see them. Here's what I'm going to suggest for the future: when a Rogue Riddle is over, create a new thread for it from scratch (don't just rename the old thread and/or cut off the hashtag) so that your e-mail will go out to everyone, and so that replies will go to the list and not just back to you.

Without further ado, here's Aaron's solved riddle.
