A wizard came to you in a dream last night. 
She was upset and cried "Someone has stolen my pet owl Oly!"

"They told me if I wanted to get him back, I had to solve the riddles locked within this strange device!"  she said, holding up a phone. 

"I know not what this thing is, but you, who resides outside the land of dreams, surely does."

She hands you the phone and cries "Please help us!"

She added "You must solve them all to get my Oly Back!"
