Now you hooked me on... I won't rest till I catch the answer....

So: Perhaps Elostirion, whose 'brother' is Tower of Meneltarma, the only remaining part of Atalante... or Grey Havens?

Colder, but at the same time, lesser landmarks is the right direction of thought. Still, I don't think Elostirion was a place that lay in darkness.

Ironfoot said that it's in/close to Eriador. I think that would mean that it's not anywhere in Beleriand.
Nargothrond and Gondolin fit rather nicely, though.

Sorry for the wait!

Good guess, though Fornost falls into a ruined shadow of its former glory, it is not engulfed in darkness.

The Downs is the right train of thought. But those are made up of many bastard cousins and nephews and uncles, and that lineage gets a bit messy. These two brothers are far bigger.

Ah didn't see that when I was looking through the stuff on the last page, this riddle is a tricky one since it is pretty general I think these are the two most likely
1. Moria- the first dwarven Kingdoms obvious defilement etc
2. Could be the old forest which (bar Mr Bombadill) is a rather evil place

Pipe

*puffs on his pipe in triumph*

Right well I've struggled a bit with this but I think I've managed it ok
A love for two I tried to hold
but the two tore me apart
one I lost and so became whole
but a pain was left in my heart

Between the wilful shepherdess
And the Lady of the sea
My heart was in a constant duel
but this they could not see


I think since I reference 3 people here you should name them all (sorry its not the best riddle)

Sounds like Sam - the 2 people being Frodo and Rosie. The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is how they didn't see his pain - Frodo at least saw, even if no one else did.

Well, it's been a while, and Mnemo didn't post a reply...

I am black, and Black I wield,
I fought Gold to protect gold.
I went out as a Lord of old
To be between Gold and gold as a shield.

Victorious was black, for Black never yields,
Or, at least, so black as told.


And hopefuly this riddle will require more than one guess to solve it! ( <-- for my previous two. )

PS: please name everybody that was mentioned!

One of those is Morgoth (or Sauron). The gold bit could refer to...

*gapes* Of course! Turin! He himself is black and wields black sword! He went to kill Glaurung the Golden to protect his wife and sister, who had golden hair. It all fits perfectly!

So, my guess is Turin.

and again it's solved from the first try. Yes, black=Turin, gold=Nienor Niniel, Black=Black Sword aka Gurthang, and Gold=Glaurung the Golden. You didnt mention the Lord (=Azaghal), but I'll give it to you anyways.


Looking forward to your riddle!

Here it is:

Iron, gold and gold again
I created them all
They were stolen from me
On that fateful day

Hidden eyes and hidden allies
Followed my every step
When I found the truth
I could do nothing but weep

Journey came to an end
I still wonder why
When sun goes down
So shall I!

Happy riddling

Well, this is a referece to Morwen ("I am spent. I shall go with the sun."). The "eyes and allies" could be Glaurung watcing them on Amon Ethir, and the Doriath troop under Mablung keeping watch over her.

However, she didn't lose Turin, Lalaith, and Nienor all in one day (well, if that's wht iron, gold, and gold mean)... Plus, she didn't weep.

So I dunno...

No, she didn't. That is a metaphor. As is 'weep'.

So, your cue.

P.S. Those are metaphors, so don't hold a grudge.

P.P.S: It should have been 'the truth keep" instead of "weep". I decided upon the later to confuse you.

Anyway, it's your turn to make a riddle. And make it harder this time. Even me, who am poor when it comes to riddles, could guess your last one...

No grudges against your metaphors, and plese don't hold any against mine.

I thouht that my last riddle was confusing! Well, I was proven wrong...


I'm neither young nor old,
Right in between am I.
I finished my house,
Yet my line didn't die.


Happy riddling!

Since no one seems to answer, I guess I'll encourage them, with my own guess...

Elendil?

No, not Elendil. Why do you think it was him? It will be easier if you explain your guess. I can tell you if you're in the right direction with something...

PS: YAY! My first riddle that wasn't solved from the first try!

This one is pretty tricky, but I'll give it a try: Theodred

I'm neither young nor old, - Theodred was 41 when he died - contrary to the wrong depiction in the films
Right in between am I. - 41 is just about half of the normal life expentancy for Rohirrim
I finished my house, - last of the House of Aldor
Yet my line didn't die.
- the line of Eorl and Brego was continued on Eofor's side by Eomer

Good guess, TM, but not what I had in mind. You are definitely on the right track, at least with the actual answer. Some of the approach is right as well.

Keep trying!

PS: the Rohirrim had a rather high life expectancy during times of war!

If Miggy was on the right track with the Rohirrim, I think I've got it.

It's Brego, isn't it? (Meaning the king, not the horse.)

I'm neither young nor old
- neither Eorl the Young nor Aldor the Old
Right in between am I.
- son of the former, father of the latter
I finished my house,
- completed the building of Meduseld
Yet my line didn't die.
- his first son, Baldor, was lost in the Paths of the Dead, but the second one, Aldor, continued the line.

You probably got lost because you took "house" to mean "family", rather that the simpler meaning = building (there was a clue! I said 'finished', not 'ended'!).

And I just love the "young and old" thing.

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

PS: Don't listen to me, I'm too hyper right now to talk sense.

PPS: I thought someone would guess (half)elves, because their features don't show age, but you can see their wisdom/life experience...

PPPS: Well, at least this was some progress for me. Riddle solved on 3rd guess, rather than the first...

PPPPS: I'm talking too much, and beating Gandalf at post-scriptum-ing

PPPPPS: Am excited for Pitch's riddle!

PPPPPPS: Going completely crazy, and totaly beating Gandaf at post-scriptums.

*Losing track of my post-scriptums, and apologizing for the number.

I guess I'll post, for I have a riddle

Nine black, one white,
I control them, that's fate
White also controls black,
keeping them on right track.

In my tale ships do take part
My people and I - descendants of same race
My King cherished ships,
and I loved him in my heart.

Yet my actions were bitter betrayal
In more way than one
Into cruel destiny,
my punishment had me thrown.

(This one is a bit harder, if you don't know where to look.)

Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
Thumbs up

And here I tried to confuse you by putting nothing specific...

Your turn.

"Nine black, one white," tipped me off.

I should have thought before answering. I've exhausted my riddle ideas. Hopefully this isn't as bad as I think it is:

I looked at grey -
Enchantment.

I looked at inferior -
Confidence.

I looked at gold -
Truth.




No rhyme, no rhythm, no alliteration, no nothing. My brain is tired.
Happy riddling!
