    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Well lets see...Ringbearer, not Ringwraith...lord came before kings or warband (old), does not fear pain or death or tears, so not mortal...and doesn't hate. Hmmm, maybe Cirdan? Not sure about the older brother part though.

    I thought maybe Cirdan would be guessed... but he's not the answer, your observations are correct, though.

    O_O If my guess is right, than that is just plain awesome. Galadriel. Her brother was Finrod Felaguand, who she followed to Middle-Earth for a 'brief stay'. Amazing riddle.

    Ringbearer for well over two thousand years,

    Feeling no hatred and wanting for naught,
    Sojourn to big brother is all that I've sought.

    I'm guessing the answer is the Anduin.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    I must admit, Galadriel fits most lines pretty well, but she's not the answer either.

    Here's a hint, don't take big brother too literally...

    EDIT: Nice job Silverlocket, can't get much past you! I was going for the Gladden river, but the Anduin is pretty much the same thing.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Yay! And I even have a new riddle ready (finally). See if this one makes sense to you:


    I come and I kill and I go where I will,
    and none be who can stop me.
    Peasant and king feel the pain that I bring,
    the anguish that burns so hotly.

    Unseen and unheard, by human or bird,
    desolation follows behind.
    Heartbeats are stilled in the land of red hills;
    the guardian eyes are left blind.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Well, I would have said Morgoth, going about uncloaked as one of the Valar, but these lines:

    Heartbeats are stilled in the land of red hills;
    the guardian eyes are left blind.

    make me think not..

    I'm thinking the Gift of Illuvatar, the Doom of Men, Death itself?

    Nope. Good guess, though. I am continually impressed by the people who post on this thread.

    Sounds like a Plauge... like the one that came out of Angmar and desolted the kingdoms of Anor...?

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Is the answer perhaps, "Age"?

    Or perhaps Glaurung?

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    LOTRFan101 got the answer: it was the Great Plague that wiped out the Dunedain in Cardolan ("red-hill land") and resulted in the desertion of Osgiliath and the abandonment of Minas Ithil.

    Good job, folks!

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    OK, just for a little fun, here's one that is strictly LOTRO- (not LOTR-) related:


    Oh, where is my master? Where is my miss?
    It makes me so mad I could stand up and hiss!
    My family and I have been in here so long,
    waiting for them. Is there something wrong?
    I hope when they come back they bring some nice fish,
    or maybe some chicken -- that's what I wish.
    Until that time we'll stay in this house
    Watching for birds, or maybe a mouse.

    Sounds like the house in Bree with all the cats in it. The one you have to visit for chicken play.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    If that's it, here's a new riddle, hope it formats OK:

    I am an honorable badge, a hanging shame, an homage to the past, an observation, or a whim
    I am used by the firstborn, though even they that came before depended on my clarity
    I am a gift to all things, once they're known, from the high and mighty to the low
    I am simple or complex, beautiful or dreadful, and most often I reflect
    I am what no one can take away from you even unto your death
    I am universal, gracing or effacing all things in thought
    I am with you and all that you know, ever in tow

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Yes, it was the "cathouse," Womdon. I'll ponder your riddle when I get a chance.

    If by "firstborn" you mean the Elves... immortality?

    Sounds like light to me; Ithil or Anar? Or perhaps the starlight; Earendil or Elbereth?

    No, sorry, not light or starlight either. It seems like I've finally written a tough one, heheh.

    I'm hesitant to post, just in case my streak of wrong answers continue...but could it be language?
