That doesn't sound like the right answer to me. (just kidding)

Yes, how about a hint?

I have two... either:

lust of power
Men are ensnared- by the possibility of having power
kingdoms are destroyed-because others want power over them
plans are ruined- because those who had the power to make plans are enslaved
love is broken- because people go out to get powerfull rather than stay with those they love
wars are fought-to overthrow counties
The wielder of the weapon
escapes without harm...-because he now rules

or....
a ring of power(especially one of the nine)

correct? (I donīt think so, to be honest)

The army marches forward in thousands

All towards the One.

Oh goody. Galenfea, it would be nice if you posted one, but you donīt have too- itīs not quiz room.
Gotta new one:

More powerful than Mountains
More true than every word
and greatly youīll desire
what with them you saw and heard

i will also say palantir...


here's my riddle...
When perils calls
it allows escape
when battle horns sound
it steadies your sword blows
when a horse runs free
it lets you tame it
when doom is upon you
it keeps you from running

what is it?

For your riddle, Warbringer, my answer is either valor, honor, or humility. All could very easily be wrong.

My guess to warbringers riddle is: Prudence/calm

Honorable man escapes not, even when wise would. Calm swordarm strikes truer then enraged one. Man of passion could not tame a horse for lack of patience to the animals wildness. Coward escapes when rational man knows the best chances lie in facing the danger rather then exposing ones back to it.

ok.... itīs not exactly LotR relared... and with "more true" I mean they tell you more about a person than they will probably tell you... and they also tell you more about yourself than you might have known...

better?

OK, so here I go again.... ummm, let's see...

Glowing like a star so bright
Love and tenderness do I show
In the darkness of the night
I bring you memories of what you know
The light itself could fade very soon
But now is rest and forgotten is doom

Umm... A rather strange guess, but I'd say Earendil, with the Silmaril? (A.K.A the North or evening star)

Glowing like a star so bright Well, he became a star, and the Silmaril shines, so maybe that could work.
Love and tenderness do I show Umm... Earendil is the most beloved star... or something.
In the darkness of the night That one's easy.
I bring you memories of what you know Everyone on the board ought to the story of Earendil, and when I look at the North star, sometimes I think about Bilbo's song. Maybe that's just me.
The light itself could fade very soon The evening star is the first one to disappear at dawn
But now is rest and forgotten is doom It shows up at night. When you rest. And when he rests, he forgets his doom, which is to be the star.

Ok. Maybe that's pretty tenous. I like it anyway.
