Ok, I'm really rubbish at riddles (maybe I should try alliterative verse!)

Here goes:
"Hand of Silver"
was my other name.
A worker of metal
In Gwaith-i-Mirdain.
A craftsman supreme,
I created the three.
I was slain by the Dark lord
And passed over the sea.

The sugar seems to be working Horse-Maiden, it was indeed Celebrimbor [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Raci...The Three refers to the Elven rings...but good guess with the Silmarils.

Ah, yes. Sugar is my friend. Mwehehehe!
Erm..anyways. Pardon my horrid riddle:

We sang a song a time ago
We fought a quite long time ago
We welcomed dwarves (with reluctance!)
A wizard
And hobbits!
Who are we?

Oh, maybe I should word it differently...now that I read it over it doesn't sound the way it's supposed to...

We sang a song a time ago
We fought a quite long time ago
We welcomed dwarves (with reluctance!)
We welcomed a wizard
We welcomed hobbits!
And many other folk.
Who are we?

I'm very nitpicky on this one. Elves it is, but from where?

could it be elves from Lothlorien? after all they did try to blindfold Gimli...and they seemed to look to Gandalf, though he was not there.. and they welcomed the hobbits as well

You folks know where you are with this riddle. Please continue it and this topic in a new thread. I'm closing the really long ones to save bandwidth.
