I actually had Faramir in mind when I wrote it but after I went to bed last night I realized it could be either one, so your turn, Bill.

Thanks, Aratlithiel. I was hoping to get it right, because I had a question in mind.
I am grey, my name is grey, and grey sits astride me: who am I?
Part of this is tricky, so don't be fooled!

Yay! You got it! Shadowfax is said to be white, but white horses are known as grey. Shadows are grey, and Gandalf the grey(at first, anyway). Your go! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

For many ages they shall wait
Their task to guard and keep the gate
To pleasure and to joy
It is their life, it is their fate

I can't recall the name, but is it the people that Isildur banished and Aragorn set free whilst on the Paths of the Dead?

Silent Watchers was my first guess to but I can't reconcile them with pleasure and joy.

The Dunedain?

WAITing for the return of the king
GUARDing the Shire

Ok, Beware of the EASY riddle...

In a Land of Stone we are set to gaurd,
a Mighty Prince whose will is hard.
A specified task, we are set,
to make sure he lives long yet!

Who/What am I descibing?

In Elder days my life was set,
In bliss and splendour I did dwell,
But shadow came and overswept,
And in that land my tower fell.

The tree did fail,
My daughter fled,
my heir upon the trail,
but they were caught and were then trapped,
but saved by might of mail.

For then a hero fey and strong,
Strode forth toward his doom,
For he saved the fleeing throng
and smote down all evil,
But fell toward his tomb.

My gardens are now barren,
My fields are now lost,
and now they live beneath the sea,
and there to ever dwell you'll see,
the ruin of my ost.

It's Turgon is it not? The hero that falls towards his tomb is Glorfindel, although his body was eventually picked up by the Eagles. Turgon died when his tower (upon which he stood) fell.

Gondolin along with the rest of Beleriand sunk.

Gonna make a shot at poetry... cover your ears and wash your eyes:

I awoke with stars and water,
and I passed in the night.
Strong and fell I stood,
but overmatched in might.
My line is never forgtten,
for valour and for plight.
By both hair and heart,
their fires burn most bright.

What's my name?

WOW! There was no way I thought I was correct. That was just the first elven-lord I thought of. That was strange.

Ack, and now on to the prose.

Father of Kings
I stood tall
I stand against evil
which causes my fall
A might supreme
I fought against
To my death
from a lack of sense

Wow, so horrible. What I get for attempting to rhyme. But anyway, there you go.

I doubt he'd repeat the last riddle.

Quote:
Father of Kings
I stood tall
I stand against evil
which causes my fall
A might supreme
I fought against
To my death
from a lack of sense
Fingolfin is father to Fingon and Turgon (KINGS not king), he stands against Morgoth, he falls to his death in the pit carved by Grond, a might supremem is again Morgoth, and it says that he was basically nuts when he rode to the challenge; hence the "from a lack of sense"

Huzzah! Lets see if I can craft a harder one..

I've rode many miles,
for the sake of kin;
And many more I'll travel,
With tidings and with twins.
My path is ever dark,
but with you I do not care;
My fate will come with daylight,
and with dawn comes the heir.

Who am I?

Haha, was just a hunch, and then I looked it up.

Watch the lang. btw, Admins don't like that.

A small one I am
and yet only one way
A friend of Sams
I helped some get away
I led the rebels till
nearly the end of my day
Imprisoned I was
But with help I got away

I give up at rhyming I swear...
