    Yep. I've already sent a request to a dev that I figured would be interested in the riddle game. He told me he'd pass the request along, and also mentioned that Patience and Saffron are the proper recipients of such requests. Just so ya know

    Fusillade, it's all good, and good riddle! But now you have to answer mine.... muahahaha

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Nice poem Fusillade fun to read, and Im sure it was fun to write

    Womdon, you speak of the future do you not? I couldnt get the line about lazy man's friend to fit for a while, then it came to me; the lazy are always saying they'll do things "soon", or "tomorrow" haha very cool

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Yep, tomorrow it is

    I think I'll veer back to the lore for this next one:

    Symbol of transition and path of wisdom taken,
    Sundered but briefly, by South-Victor's son remade.

    Those who thought it doomed were sorely mistaken,
    Though the ring ensured the line of heirs was frayed.

    Gleaming white and silver with adamant resolve,
    It perched proudly atop its rightful noble roost.

    For witch-king's guile, to the dead it was absolved,
    Until a ranger gave the world of men a boost.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Is that Gondor? One of its kings was named South-victor (another was called East-victor)...

    Its line of kings was broken, and white and silver are its colors (well, Minas Tirith in particular) and Aragorn, a Ranger, became its king.

    And yes, I am obsessed with Gondor...

    You're close, although the answer is a bit more specific than Gondor

    No, not the White tree. Maybe you should check out the deeds accomplished by the South-Victor's son. You'll probably figure it out then

    Ah, I'm stuck here, I can't find any specific deeds.

    Not to mention the fact that there were two south-victors...

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    I would guess the Line of Stewards...
    Thus he came alone to Angband's gates, and he sounded his horn, and smote once more upon the brazen doors, and challenged Morgoth to come forth to single combat. And Morgoth came.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Yeah I must admit I piggybacked my guess on the hard work of the previous guessers hehe

    Here's my latest offering


    Beloved but no lover, mighty but no king
    In Imladris dwelt, with Elrond’s folk, with elves assembling
    In Hall of Fire reveled, sang no song and drank no wine
    Departed with the fellowship, and journeyed with the nine
    A savior on the mountain’s slope, in the Dwarrowdelf a friend
    Protected those who faced a dark no wizard’s might could rend


    edit: changed one word

    Hummm, well after thinking about it for a bit, is the answer Anduril?

    Nope, not Anduril; though that definitely fits some of the lines

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Miruvor is correct! the elven cordial given to Gandalf by Elrond when the fellowship departed Rivendell. A small sip of it revived them on Caradhras and gave them courage in Moria.

    ok Iluminatus, youre up

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Well it's been about a day, so I'll place a riddle up on the board:

    In darkness, oppression and pain I thrive,
    Once all is made right, forgotten, I hide,
    The meat of Esteldin and Earendil's star,
    I gripped to the stone known as Elessar.

    Indeed it is, nice job sloth!

    (Estel means hope in elvish, hence Esteldin and Gil-Estel)

    EDIT: Good guess, LOTRfan, that fits a few of the lines pretty well. I just hope the rangers in Esteldin don't start feasting on eagles tho

    I believe it's an Eagle, which is what the Elfstone was set in?

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Well here's a new riddle for this morning,

    Companion of great beauty and everlasting youth,
    Discoverer of Eru's art and the harbinger of truth,
    Rightly feared and rightly loved respectively in kind,
    To the olvar of the crafted lands his heart did ever bind,
    When the sounding of the mighty horn rang beyond Aman,
    Foul-formed and fair-formed alike knew the hunt was on.


    By the way guys, stay wary out there... April fool's day is sneaking up on us... <checks over his shoulder>

    Since it's not the 1st yet, I'll guess both Huan and Orome, although I deem these both too superficial to be right..
    Thus he came alone to Angband's gates, and he sounded his horn, and smote once more upon the brazen doors, and challenged Morgoth to come forth to single combat. And Morgoth came.
