    The Riddle-Game

    Another hang-over from the pre-release forums, in honor of the original Riddle Game Master, Brodomir!

    Zitat Zitat von Brodomir Beitrag anzeigen
    Is "Riddles in the Dark" one of your favorite parts of The Hobbit? If so come and partake of a riddle or two here!

    Rules:

    1.Have fun and be nice.

    2.Only one riddle at a time.

    3.The person giving the riddle has 24 hours to respond yes or no to a answer or else it is counted as “dead.”

    4.If a riddle is “dead", the person who gave the last riddle has first crack at posting a new riddle.

    5.The first person to get a right answer to a riddle has 24 hours to post a new riddle. If no new riddle is given, then the last person to give a riddle has first crack at posting a new riddle.

    6. If the person whose turn it is to give a riddle does not wish to give one, they may pass it to whoever they wish.
    So now, the first of (hopefully) many riddles to come:


    The world was young, the mountains green,
    When first was wrought my silver sheen.
    Though once I sat on Deathless head,
    The brow on which I shone is dead.

    The world's now grey, the mountains old,
    And where I lie, the air is cold.
    In clearest pool I do now rest,
    'Til again I sit, on Durin's crest.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Is that talking about the Arkenstone?


    I defer giving my own riddle, as I am at work and my resources are limited.

    I says it's Durin's "crown" in the Mirrormere.

    If the previous riddler says I'm right, here's my riddle. If not, ignore

    Many webbed fingers have I
    On hundreds of hands, on hundreds of arms.
    My brothers stand, my keepers walk,
    Though each is lured by the other's charms.

    My feet are deep, my food is brown
    My skin is old, my heart is young.
    My flesh is sturdy, my days are long
    My hands draw power from the sun.

    I'm not sure about the previous post either, although it certainly sounds like The Arkenstone. As far as your riddle is concerned, the answer is TREES!
    Alas, I am no good at creating riddles but love trying to solve them. I defer to someone else to post below to keep this thread alive...

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Just to confirm renowiggum's answer: the answer to the first riddle was definitely the Mirrormere that Gimli showed to Frodo (and Sam). While in Moria, Gimli chants a poem that refers to it.

    Sorry, I was called away unexpectedly for a couple of days. Yes, the answer to my first riddle was indeed the Crown of Durin, Lord of Moria.

    Anyway, someone else give the next one, assuming the second one by renowiggum was answered correctly (trees?).

    Thank you for reviving the game; I thought all interest had faded. Since no one has put forth another riddle yet here is one that I came up with a few months back...

    When Blinding King blinded be,
    In twilight, his crown we see.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Since no one is stepping up:

    Lantern without flame
    On ship never wet
    Sailing sea without name
    Piloted by man never dead

    Coveted by firstborn
    Inspired by tree
    From the land I am shorn
    Now can you name me?

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Is it Earendil's silmaril? I don't have a riddle though, so anyone who wants to can go next.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Well, I guess I made that too easy, eh?

    The Silmaril it is.

    Seriously, though. Coming up with riddles is almost as much fun as guessing. Just give it a shot - you can do it!

    maybe I'll try... I'll have to think of one though. I've never made a riddle before. I'll try to think of one and then post again if I do.

    Okay, here goes... sorry if it's too easy.

    A thing of great worth,
    All did admire,
    Found deep in the earth,
    Hoarded by fire,

    After worm was not 'live,
    'Twas found in his hoard,
    Then was battle of five,
    Now lies with Dwarf-Lord.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    This one is the Arkenstone I believe. I'll try to come up with one tomorrow if I'm right, but anyone who has one ready go ahead.

    Only one color, but not one size
    Stuck at the bottom, but easily flies
    Present in sun, but not in rain
    Doing no harm, and feeling no pain

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Excellent riddle! here is my next one since I won....


    I'm a slippery fish in a cloudy sea;
    Neither hook nor spear will capture me.
    With your hand you must hunt and seize this fish,
    And see that it ends up in the dish!
