Here is a little riddle which I posed as a giveaway contest to the US East trade forum. They have been having a little trouble, so I thought I might post it here as well to see if anyone can figure it out. If you do figure it out, and would not like the items, please pm me your solution so that other people may solve it themselves.
"One day, Baal and Mephisto were discussing which of the two should rule over all the humans. Mephisto thought it was his turn, so he tried to hit Baal with a Skull Missile. Baal was almost hit, but teleported away just in time and cast a Mana Rift on Mephisto. Somehow, Mephisto dodged the spell from Baal, but his name bar above his head was not so lucky and the Mana rift cut off the last three letters from his name.
All of a sudden, Izual, lurking in the corner, bounded to his feet and declared himself Supreme Ruler. Baal and Mephi laughed hysterically and turned on the upstart young fellow and tried to attack him. Unfortunately, Izual just laughed in their faces and proclaimed that he was three times as powerful as the sum of Baal and Mephi. Baal, desperately seeking an edge, cast his Vile Effigy clone in a last ditch attempt to contain Izual, but Izual again cried out that he was still twice as powerful as his (now three) foes. Izual banished the Lords of Hate and Destruction, and now rules supreme over the worldstone.
The question is, how did Izual know that he was omnipotent?"
First hint: Mathematics are involved.
Second hint: Simple math only.
Third hint: It is the same type of riddle as the previous one.

Many other items too numerous to list, like 20life charms, Ravenfrosts, resist/life charms.
Now, what that has to do with anything, I have no clue.
One thing that confused me about these riddles though - omnipotence implies unlimited power, Izual shouldn't be relatable to baal or mephisto with a finite integer, unless you're talking about some alternative math form where infinity itself is defined. But the OP says we're confining ourselves to simple math. Care to explain?
