I'm gonna snag this one - sorry Beren!

What have I got in my pocket? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] j/k


I have killed a ruler
and then served a king
I will listen and learn
but can't tell you a thing
I carry a heavy burden
one that's renowned
I was valiant and strong
but they never gave me a crown
I died with my burden
but our legend is fine
Of that I am certain
we were the first of our line
What else can I tell you?
well, my raiment is white
As are the mountains
south in my sight
Legend's get grander
as the years go and go
But this one's a doozy
Men say I came from Orom
Here I come, there I go
never beat in a race
The last thing you'll see
is my dust in your face!!!

Look how long that thing is now!!! As you can see I added on to it for more clues.

The closest I can get is Fingolfin, because everyone thought he was Orome at somepoint. Or it could be Finrod Felagund, because men thought he was a Valar.... that is HARD!

Congratulations TheSaucepanMan!

For those that care - I will explain it below:

I have killed a ruler - Lod ruler of the othod
and then served a king - Eorl
I will listen and learn - Can understand the speech of men
but can't tell you a thing - Cannot speak it
I carry a heavy burden - A man, Eorl
one that's renowned - A king
I was valiant and strong - Felarf translate to 'valiant and 'strong'
but they never gave me a crown - Obvious
I died with my burden - In battle, and buried together
but our legend is fine - Still strong in memory
Of that I am certain
we were the first of our line - Eorl of Rohan - Felarf of Mearas
What else can I tell you?
well, my raiment is white - White hair
As are the mountains
south in my sight - White mountains south of Edoras
Legend's get grander
as the years go and go
But this one's a doozy
Men say I came from Orom - Felarf said to be a gift from Orom
Here I come, there I go
never beat in a race
The last thing you'll see
is my dust in your face!!! - One faaaaassst horse!!!

Well, I'm glad someone got it. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I knew that the Complete Tolkien Companion would come in handy ... [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Now, for another riddle ...

Exchanged in the dark
The choice there was stark
Twixt life or a snack for the other

My answer is me
When found it will see
Me passed along to another

It is. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

And, although not exclusively so, I think riddles are certainly a part of JRRT's world (they merit an entry in my Tolkien Companion).

My answer is me
When found it will see
Me passed along to another


That will be you then, Annunfuiniel (aka "solver of Saucepan's clues" [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ).

Thank you very much, Saucepan! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
And you are right about Tolkien and riddles, I admit.
Well, here we go again:

My birth is a mystery
but strange was my destiny
as you shall soon hear
For both grace and agony
I brought to certain family
once I even caused fear
Then after a horrid tragedy
I ended in one's treasury
and he was far from dear
But all turned fine, luckily
this is where I return to the story
as new age is now and here.


Yes, it's stupid! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Oh Gosh, the silmaril fits perfectly- but you know what? It still isn't the answer I was looking for! [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] I hope you get the right answer eventually, aragornreborn, for you really deserve it. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

That's an educated answer as well, but not the right one I'm afraid. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

And the hint was: read your UT.

And the winner is...*drums please*...elven maiden Earwen!!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
I probably should clarify:

My birth is a mystery-We know very little about the origin of the first Elendilmir

For both grace and agony
I brought to certain family
-Well, this might have been a bit misleading...The light of E. was one thing to cause Isildur's death(it revealed him to the orcs)

once I even caused fear-When Isildur put the One Ring on (during the battle of the Gladden Fields) and turned invisible the light of E. could still be seen and it frightened both orcs and men.

Then after a horrid tragedy-The Disaster of the Gladden Fields

I ended in one's treasury-Saruman's

But all turned fine, luckily
this is where I return to the story
as new age is now and here.
-In the UT it's also described how the long lost Elendilmir was found from Orthanc and returned to it's rightful owner, King Elessar, in the early years of the FA.

So, Earwen, my congrats once more and the stage is all yours! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
