Then I'd have to guess Nirnaeth Arnoediad, The battle of countless tears.

Good job Bombur! I was hoping the "tears were flowing" line would bring that battle to the front of your mind.

Your turn.

Actually it was the loss of hope part that made it pretty obvious to me. All wars bring tears...

Anyways, I'd rather pass my turn. If anyone wants to, feel free to make a riddle. I'm LOUSY in making them but love to puzzle over them.

Is it the Lonely Mountain? It is lonely (alone and apart) and it could be talking about before when dwarves lived beneath it (people live within my heart)

So close (idea), and yet so far (distance).

It fits well, but not exactly what I wanted.

Not Tol Eressea. Remember, think along the lines of what Horse-Maiden guessed. (and I suppose you can guess as much as you want)

If you guys don't have it when I get home from work, I'll give a really nice hint [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] .

ok, here goes:

No beginning, no end
Haunted, you are, until you have found what it is you search for
none ever hear my voice
save for whispers in the dark
my possibilities are endless
as vast as the knowledge the soul of the world can contain

what am I?

*this is related to Lotr, by the way.
good luck! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

The only thing that would seem to fit is Iluvatar...

If it was not LOTR related, I'd have guessed fate.

Actually I think it works...

"No beginning, no end"
That is Eru the one

"Haunted, you are,"
Men are haunted by the Ones gift

"until you have found what it is you search for"
Till they recieve it... die.

"none ever hear my voice save for whispers in the dark"
Even Manwe, I seem to remember, consulted Iluvatar by listening to the winds.

"my possibilities are endless as vast as the knowledge the soul of the world can contain"
What is that if not a creator god?


Might not be right, but come to think of it, it DOES fit... Is it right?

wow bombur.
i never thought of that, but it fits perfectly doesn't it? maybe even more so than the actual answer.
but no, sorry, that isn't what i was thinking of when i made up the riddle.
(although it could have been [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img])

the clue, lies in In the dark
think of a phrase with these words.

Speaking of riddles, that was a good one Nevvasaiel! Here's mine....

In you I dwell, deep in your soul,
though you don't always realize I'm there.
While I'm forgotten, peace you can have,
but once I'm awakened, you must beware.

who's talking, and who are they talking to?
