 [quote="Jack_Ian"]Assuming that you actually need to figure something out, how about this... [spoiler]If I go down this road (indicate road 1), would I reach Musquodoboit? No! He is lying, take the road. Yes! He's lying. Ask same question for road 2. No! He's lying, take road 2 Yes!, Take road 3.[/spoiler] I'm assuming I've misunderstood something, because the solution seems a little too simple. Also, you might have come from Shubenacadie. Or perhaps you could read the other signs, since only the one to Shubenacadie was eaten.[/quote]

Don't you need [if and] only if for that to work?
OP only says "if I lie then you asked me about where a road goes."

So I was thinking. Werewolves are when men turn into wolves and then want to eat live people. Zombies are when dead men come alive and want to eat live people. If a werewolf and a zombie were fighting over a tasty morsel who would win? Or would they share?

Yes, it's that simple.

Baah! I spent too long trying to come up with something clever, and got beaten to the punch.

I ask the troll, "Do werewolves taste delicious?"

Then I go back the way I came from..

Didn't you arrive at the fork coming from Musquodoboit? If you want to return to it wouldn't you just turn around and go back on the road you came on? No questions are needed or am I missing something?

While on vacation in Puzzlevania, you decide to take a day's walk down a country lane from Musquodoboit to Shubenacadie, the hometown of an author you've long wanted to meet. Unfortunately, you've never been down this road before and, as luck would have it, you are shortly interrupted by a rather ugly troll. The troll is, of course, standing at a fork in the road.

The troll seems to have eaten the sign indicating which path leads to Shubenacadie, but he's happy to share some advice. "From this fork, the three roads lead to Musquodoboit, Shubenacadie, and Kejimkujik. I'll lie only if you ask me any questions about which road goes to which town, but I strongly advise you to avoid Kejimkujik, as it's been overrun by werewolves. Oh, and Shubenacadie is out too, as it's got a pretty major zombie infestation."

The troll doesn't seem particularly bright, but you doubt he is lying about the nasties. You'd really like to make it to Musquodoboit, but how can you figure out which way to go? The troll seems to intuit your thoughts, and adds, "Now don't you go asking any complicated questions, or I'll eat you, myself."

So, how do you get to Musquodoboit?
