Is the speaker an emotion?

Is the one being addressed a particular person?

I suppose you could call it an emotion.

And no, it's not one particular person.

Thanks, lord of dor-lomin.

I guess, power or greed, to whoever comes under the influence of the ring?

The word "beware" reminded me of something someone said to Legolas (maybe Galadriel said it), "beware of the sea" or something like that. And I also remember Legolas saying something about never being satisfied (or at peace) with the woods again since he heard the ocean birds. So it seems to me that the sea, or more accurately, the sea-longing, seems to fit the riddle fairly well.

So I'll say the sea-longing talking to an elf.

It's the phantom, not Mr!! Get it right!!

Well, here's mine.

I've journeyed far and wide
with a steward as my guide
he gave me one last breath
then I went unto my death

Could be....but Denethor was the steward, not Boromir. Fits though.

Sorry about the confusion. Actually, the horn is exactly what I had in mind. The horn had been passed down, so it had been carried by stewards, so that's why I put in that part. When the next line says "he", it's referring to Boromir, not to "a steward" in the line before. It's a riddle, so I didn't want to make the wording too easy (but apparantly, it was anyway).

Go ahead, raci!

Let's try to get this started. I'll go again.

Sometimes I'm a house, sometimes I'm used to fight,
Sometimes I am dead, sometimes I give light

wood?

people build with wood for houses
wood can be used as a club for fighting
wood can be dead
You can use wood to create a torch to create light

A fate that cannot be denied
Some crave me though they can not have me
Others despise my existance for what they can lose in time
For things that you love can just pass before your eyes
And be gone before you can stop it


I know it doesn't ryhme or anything, but it really fits the music I am listening to right now.

Death?
-obviously a fate that cannot be denied
-immortal beings may crave it(?!) but cannot have it
etc.

And they are like one meaning that they look very much like one (and this reads in the books).

And if someone didn't get what I meant by the first lines: Elladan&Elrohir were half-elves as you remember, so they had both elven and human blood in their veins.
