    Re: The Riddle-Game

    My guess is Morgoth's crown; it was made of iron, and had the three Silmarils (shining stars) mounted in it.

    I think that the three houses of stone might be the cities (houses) of those among the elves who lusted after the Silmarils. (Gondolin, Menegroth, and one other that I can't remember.)

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    The answer is correct, even if the third line's guess wasn't. The three houses of stone are the three-fold peaks of Thangorodrim. Nevertheless, the correct answer is Morgoth's Crown.

    Your go

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Yay! Ok, here goes:

    Seven I am,
    Seven we were,
    Undying yet mortal,
    Mighty we were.

    The first in the first,
    The last in the fourth,
    Not East nor West
    Nor South nor North.

    Under my rain
    New letters were made,
    My hat underwater
    In splendor displayed.

    I saw the West become bent,
    I saw the North-lands rent.
    I saw the East fall twice.
    But the South out-lasted me.

    What am I?

    Good luck!

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Enimity of Tomatoes is right. The answer was Durin. - You're up!

    And I spelled rain (reign) exactly how I wanted to spell it - it wasn't a typo.

    To be nice, here's the explanation:
    Lines 1&2 - refers to the seven "incarnations" of Durin. (Durin I - VII)
    Line 3 - refers to the fact that Durin was called 'The Deathless', but eventually died.
    Line 4 is there to keep rhythm.

    Lines 5&6 - The first Durin lived in the First Age, while the last (Durin VII) lived in the Fourth Age.
    Lines 7&8 - Moria, where each Durin held their court, is roughly in the middle of the map; it's not in the Northlands (Angmar, Forochel, Evendim, etc), the East (Mordor, Rhun, Harad, etc.), the West (Valinor) or the South (Gondor.)

    Lines 9&10 - Under Durin (IV?), the Angerthas Moria were created.
    Lines 11&12 - The Crown of Durin in the Mirrormere

    Line 13 - Refers to the bending of the world, when Valinor was cut off from the rest of Middle Earth after the downfall of Numenor.
    Line 14 - Refers to the wars between the North-kingdom and Angmar in which both nations were ruined.
    Line 15 - Refers to the two defeats of Mordor.
    Line 16 - Refers to the kingdom of Men which remained long after Durin's Folk had vanished from Middle Earth.

    Hope that eased some scratching heads

    TheAC: you sure?

    Rain: precipitation.
    Reign: the duration of a sovereign's rule.
    Raine: the lead singer of Our Lady Peace
    Rayne: a town in Louisiana.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Yes, I'm sure. I've never heard of the latter two, but my changing of 'reign' to 'rain' was purposeful. I felt like being confusing. The original line I had there was 'under my ivy', but I was unsure on whether or not the Angerthas Moria were established under Durin IV.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    If really someone else may go, I'll try, if not, just ignore.
    Here's my riddle:

    "I am what I am, when nobody knows what I am.
    If someone knows what I am, I am not anymore what I was.
    What am I?"

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    The answer is: a Secret.

    I'll post a riddle while we wait for the other riddle to come up. If mine's unsolved before the other riddle comes up, then theirs takes precedence


    finely woven but not sewn
    not fabric-made nor full of bone
    set to keep things out not in
    a stranger piece there's never been!

    A limerick:

    By some I am thought to be fair,
    Although I am covered in hair,
    But you may not know me
    There are not many of me
    And to tell the truth I am rare.

    Lotro related, not LOTR specifically:

    To some, I am great fun.
    To others, nothing but trouble.
    I may make you fall,
    Swoon,
    Stomp your feet and
    Hide inside a bag.
    Luckily I wane as quickly as I wax,
    Until next time!

    What am I?
