Clue Set #1:
Rogue Riddle 1007
Fancy of Flights
The cold weather finally is here, so thoughts of escape arise. It is time to fancy to take flight on the dreams of wings. Aisle pose the riddles, but if you get the answers, you’ll window.
As usual this week’s Rogue consists of twenty riddles, all on the same theme.
Q: Robert E’s king?
A: LEE’S MAJESTY (lese majesty or majesté)

As always, remember that the wording of each riddle generally has been carefully chosen both to provide clues and to avoid the use of any words in the answer.
