    Sorry this is so late.
    This draws on Silmarillion lore, so put on your thinking helms.

    I laughed as the great archipelago broke away.
    I laughed as my fair form was undone.
    I laughed all the way home.
    Who am I?

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Im not a forum frequenter, but I stumbled across this thread. I absolutely love it So many great riddles and i've thoroughly enjoyed reading through it. My favorites were the soap in the bath and the false teeth.
    It's almost enough to get me to want to regularly visit the forums hehe I absolutely love solving and writing riddles, and I think Tolkien was a great riddler
    Here are a couple I wrote recently.

    A guard am I
    No one and nothing may pass while I hold my vigil
    Though I may let you gaze upon what I guard
    I bend not, nor do I yield
    Yet my body and will are weak
    And I may be broken
    And my defenses shattered
    By great force and pressure
    What am I?

    I have been chased mercilessly by a reporter and a law enforcement officer
    And then expected to appear in court
    I’ve been pursued by a poet, and a philosopher
    I have been kept hidden away and almost killed cruelly
    By a Man who speaks lies
    A deceitful Man has slyly shown people one half of me
    Some have even questioned my existence
    What am I?

    I have been on your side and then soon disappeared
    Left you wondering where I had gone
    I can be celebrated, but must also be feared
    I will catch you someday In my run
    I’m invisible to you, no one can see me
    You’re at work or unhappy? I’ll crawl
    You can ponder me much, but still not comprehend me
    But you can see my face on a wall

    Thanks again for this thread


    EDIT: just reread the rules at the beginning, forgot that only 1 riddle at a time should be posted, sorry about that..

    And the third,.....time?

    Good ones, all, by the way!!

    Wow, thats the first time i've ever been really close to getting one correct.

    EDIT August 30th:
    okay, since its been around 48 hours I hope you guys won't mind me presenting a riddle of my own. This one is probably going to be very very easy.

    I am used to pull soups and water
    yet I have never been used,
    I shine upon a black backdrop
    with my bright mates,
    Men have looked upon my
    fellows and me and mused,
    Navigation and time and futures
    can be seen in my fates.

    What am I?

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Cool thread! Here's one:

    From new life
    I come to play
    More than that
    I will not say
    (Speak not this riddle
    or you'll give it away)

    I think that's enough, but I have another verse if you need a hint.

    No clue Thorondor, a hint please?

  19. #169

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Hehe, ok. Classic case of, it's easy if you know the answer. Ok, here it is again, with another verse.

    From new life
    I come to play.
    Unless you're a monk.
    you heard it today.
    More than that
    I will not say.
    (Speak not this riddle
    or you'll give it away.)

    I think the last verse gives the biggest clue, but maybe it's just me.

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Hmm..

    Speech, or Sound?

  22. #172

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    Close enough. The answer is, a voice. Guess that was harder than I thought.

    From new life
    I come to play. <----- A baby's first cry
    Unless you're a monk.
    you heard it today. <----- Monks take vows of silence
    More than that
    I will not say. <----- "Say"...
    (Speak not this riddle
    or you'll give it away.) <----- If you spoke this riddle, you'd use your voice, so you're "giving it away"

    Re: The Riddle-Game

    That was a great riddle, took a lot of pondering!

    Just finished this one up:



    I’m there on scene when blood is shed
    My likeness seen through hate and rage
    Through cloud I fly when sun is set
    At times in theater, shone on stage
    I quiver, dancing, as in flame
    I live on apples, cherries too
    My face, oft' seen on canvas, framed
    Now guess my name and speak it true
