The only thing I know is the fifth clue, which is either gold or black. Do we take a single letter from the clues or do we have to combine all of them into one big phrase.

If big phrase is involved, the only one I could think of is Ar-Pharazon the Golden, which does have a birth name of sorts and I can put the fifth clue, the only one I know, in there....

Galadriel55 is wading through snowdrifts on Redhorn.Galadriel55 is wading through snowdrifts on Redhorn.Galadriel55 is wading through snowdrifts on Redhorn.
Right on with the fifth clue! Reposting the riddle on this page, and the answers as they come up:

My first is exactly the same as my fourth.
My second died out in the South, not the North.
My third and my fourth stand 'twixt hoops and their master,
Between bird and light, who saved lands from disaster.
My fifth is the colour of heroes and dragons.
My sixth is a fancy and glorified cabin.
Put them together, but that's not the answer:
My name that was given at birth's what you're after.


1.
2.
3.
4.
5. GOLDEN
6.



I won't tell you yet what to do with the individual clues - try to get one or two more first, and you might figure it out yourself.

Not Ar-Pharazon, though you're right about the word GOLDEN. I would recommend working out the clues though instead of going through names with gold in them.

As for the third clue, I think it's the word 'of' standing between Rings (hoops) and their master (Lord)

And this is where I am drawing a blank.


Of course, I have one more idea in the back of my foggy brain....could the answer to sixth clue be 'wood'. As in, 'Cabin in the Woods'?

Edit: Or maybe the answer to sixth clue is 'gap'?

Edit 2: Okay, I'll gamble it all here. The answer is you.

1. The
2. Lady
3. Of
4. The
5. Golden
6. Wood

aka you.

But when did ladies die out in the South?

My guess is that 2. and 6. are "King" and "Hall" respectively. If I'm right about that, and you're right about the rest, that would make it The King of the Golden Hall = Theoden.

But I doubt fourth clue is just 'the'.

Well, it says, "my first is exactly the same as my fourth". And also you pointed out yourself, "of" is one of the words between "Lord" and "Rings"- but the other is "the", and the riddle speaks of "my third and my fourth".

Yeah, but I don't want you to solve it, because.....well, setting puzzles for others to solve is one of my hobbies, and I am a bad solver overall....

Sorry Urwen, but Nerwen was spot on. The answer is Theoden. You got a good part of the riddle. But Nerwen gets to set the next one.

Now look, if it means that much to you, Urwen, you can have the next turn. I'm not that great at making up riddles anyway.

I don't know, I'd like to earn the right to post one, rather than feeling as if I've stolen it. So if you have one, post if. If not, I'll take it.

Honestly, I do wish to. And here


The hunter watches
Watches with vigil
At night and during day
I am his prey

There were creatures
Bigger than many dwellers here
Their treasures were great
One of them was given to me

The stronghold of old
Into our fortress we made
Where we took the stand bold
Against shadow and shade

Yet it ended badly for us
And the curse it brought
Upon me and the others
Or so we thought

Well, I edited the original to be more poetic.

Ring

I am here, I am here, I am here.

And it's not. Be careful, lest the answer hits you like a boomerang.

Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee.

Look at the icon. :laughs:

The icon? I'm pretty sure the answer's not the Ring... or did you mean it's a Ringbearer? Bilbo in Erebor?

Yes, I did mean that second one, though your answer is still incorrect.
