Sting Riddles

How abou a rousing game of sharades..er...riddles? I'll start...

A game of men
Solves the problems of all
Though many die
one side stands tall
like a high stakes gambler
risks win it all...
What is the answer to this riddle?

It is obviously a similie of chess. It is a battle field -- war. My turn!!!!!

It grows upon the wind,
Streaking through the sky.
Evil it perhaps abodes,
Many that will die.

It smells of fire, feels of flame--
black, a shhadow in the sky.
furnaces cause this burning tow,
above all it flies.

Yay! A new riddles thread. We used to do this all the time in the "N & N section", if you look back many pages you can see two multiple page posts full of riddles and answers. They are so full though, that I think a new riddles thread in this section is quite refreshing (though I do miss exchanging riddles with Starbreeze, Susan, and pio...).
Let's start a new tradition here!

Sorry I took so long, guys. I've been busy lately.

It isn't limited to one culture,
one language,
or one country.

It's universal.

It can make you laugh
cry,
or jump for joy.

It's a surge of emotion.

It can take you to the streets of New York,
the Glades of Lothlorien,
or the islands of the tropics.

It can take you anywhere.

It's poetry,
Fantasy,
and expression,

All rolled into one.

It's.... (fill in the blank here)


sorry, I know that's vague beyond reason, but it's the best I could come up with on short notice [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]. Brownie points for anyone remotely close

*gives Sithren points for trying* Sorry, but those aren't it. Lots of things could apply to this riddle, and I'm sorry for it. I'll give you a hint.

It's not exactly tangible.

Yay, a new riddle thread! I miss those old times, and those old people... *sighs nostalgically*

Heya, Princess Tigerlily! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Dang, if I'd posted this 20 minutes later, I could have had my first post on Friday the 13th also be my 1,313th post.
On second thought, maybe that wouldn't be such a good idea...

Very well, then I will ask one.

Flying over sea and landing, dying, in my hand.

Bringer of hope and despair-those who travel on sea have hope, while those caught in storms and such despair,
it can slay the mightiest, and then spare the weakest(though by chance or by design)
controlled by the Valar
it shapes land, and it surrounds islands

ok. The wording was vague on the second line (absence of the word "can"). That's what threw me. Thanks.

Here's one while we're waiting for Aragorn.

You can see me, though you're blind
Light shines, but dispels no darkness
Touch me and I live,
But if you're touched, I die.
