    Re: The Riddle-Game

    I am the very bottom, yet I have much beneath me.
    I reach, but I never grasp.
    I age, but I grow no weaker.
    I see a needle, but I see no thread.
    I am a tower, but no one mans me.

    What am I?

    Maybe a fountain?

    A fountain as a source/spring would be the bottom with still lot's underneath.
    It reaches out - becomes a stream perhaps.
    Fountain of youth?
    There are things called fountain needle and fountain tower.

    Hmm, I want to say Tree, because much of this could fit parts of a tree, but I'm not sure about the no aging thing.

    A tree's roots are at the bottom, with much soil and rock beneath them
    A tree's branches reach, but certainly don't grasp
    No idea how a tree doesn't grow weaker, though, with age
    Pine trees have needles
    Trees tower above other vegetation.

    I think you're on the right track, Rhino-Man. Trees get wider and taller as they age - stronger.

    Both incorrect.

    Please make sure you pay attention to how it is worded in regards to the needle.

    The answer is directly from LOTR.

    Is it Kheledul? Just because of Needlehole lol

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    I believe I have the answer: The Tower on Oromet, Tar-Minastir's tower.

    It is at the very bottom of the sea, but it's still got much beneath it.
    It reaches (symbolically?) to the west, but Tar-Minastir was never able to see Tol Eressea.
    It ages, but since it is inorganic, it gets no weaker (debatable, since it's under water?)
    The needle it would have seen would have been the Tower of Avallone.
    And, the answer is right there: "I am a tower". No one mans it because no one is left alive to do so.

    Meneltarma is a mountain...

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    so, just to revive this dead thread, are you saying that Meneltarma is the answer? If so, who goes next since you kind of answered your own riddle?

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    because the thread has been dead for almost a month now here is my riddle easy one

    Last of her kind, the starter of time
    awaker of man, in her golden shine
    feared by many, loved by less
    a fruit of light, yavanna`s bless

    Sounds like the sun to me...
    Well, I suppose you could always say "flame resistant sunglasses" if you prefer that to "shoes"

    Is the tread dead once again?
    My guess would also be the sun.
    I propose that Itharas get the honour to post a new riddle if gwirith does not indicate right or wrong on the answer: sun within 3 days from now ;-)

    Alright, more than a month without any activity, this calls for desperate measures;

    By the power vested in me (by nobody else but me, poepoepiedoe) i now pronounce you, TheAC, to be the rightful owner of the right to post a new Riddle.

    Good luck and let it be a good one ;-)

    Smaug (also known as Smaug the Golden) perhaps?
