New Troll:

HE?

Specifiy.

As in the word. Just have a feeling it has something to do with the letters composing the words.

Or maybe it has something to do with food...

Is that your musings or a guess because its not the answer I am looking for either way.

It's you. Misterfive.

Damn right, okay you can ask the next riddle.

Alive as you but without breath,
as cold in my life as in my death;
never a thirst though I always drink,
dressed in a mail but never a clink.

It's a fish!

ParanoidAndroid:
It's a fish!

damn, you beat me to it!

misterfive:

Could you please explain why you are the answer to the riddle?

Nickompoop:

The question was "Who am I?" and he is Misterfive, the rest of the riddle was just glamour, at least that is what I think.

Not just that, the stuff about my sister, brother, mother and father are personalized questions. Not in a form of a metaphor true I made it sound like it was but once you figure out what I meant by "Who am I"? You can realize that only I would know about the details of my siblings and parents regardless on how I put it. It's basically mixing a simple question with the possible paradox of "Why is a raven like a writing desk"? The stuff before doesn't have an answer but the line at the end does.

I can't think of a riddle, so the next poster can go.

Well it's been 48 hours so I am going to ask one since I am bored of waiting for someone else to post. So here it goes,

A desperate machine that never cools but will never burn?

a broken ac?.
i really don't know

A deus ex machina? :D

a heater?

Gypsy ninja pirate zombie king:
a broken ac?.
i really don't know

Ah sorry didn't check the thread in awhile. Yes a broken AC is a acceptable answer.

wow i didn't think i was right. i just thought of the most literal answer.

i don't have a Riddle so next poster can go ahead.

Alright I've got one:
A man wakes up in a concrete room with no windows, no doors, and no exits or entrances. The only things that are in the room are a mirror, and a table. How does he escape?

He looks in the mirror,
He sees what he saw,
He takes the saw,
Cuts the table in half,
Pushes the halves together,
Two Halves make a whole,
He jumps through the hole and escapes.

It works better when you say it aloud.

Captainguy42:

Yes, quite. Alright my jolly good fellow, you have bested my simple riddle. I bequeath from you a riddle for others to answer!

Alright, I actually plan on using this for a D&D game, so I'm interested in seeing how easy or hard it is:

A wondrous treasure,
Valued by all, sought by many.
Found in both victory and defeat,
Yet never at the bottom of a treasure chest.
It marches before you like a herald,
And lives long after you are gone.
Of what do I speak?

The future, or time in general.

Is it soul, I have no clue :)

your reputation

I like that one.

leedwashere:
your reputation

You are correct sir, your turn.

Outstanding! Incidentally, for your D&D group, I thought it was a good riddle

here goes:

I am the smallest of my kin;
When looking out, I'm farthest in.
A Mariner first reached my rest,
But a Messenger has known me best.
The Greeks had thought that I was two,
But only one of me is true.

I'm going to guess that it is Mercury. Apollo was a messenger for the Gods in Greek lore and Apollo also means sun, Mercury is also the smallest planet in the solar system. The Greeks originally thought that Mercury was split into two parts (or did they think it was two stars... not sure, have to look that up), not sure about the Mariner part though. So I could be wrong. If I'm right, someone else make a riddle.

All in all, good question though.

You are quite correct

EDIT: and the middle two lines are referencing probes that visited mercury. Mariner 10 and MESSENGER

I am fast as well as slow,
short as well as long.
I have a soul but no body,
a voice but no mouth.
I can rally those without hope,
and stir the most stagnant hearts.
In the end I am little more than just an idea.

What am I?

Please note I just cobbled this together on the fly at 5 in the morning, so it might not be the best, heh.

after much thought, I want to say music

leedwashere:

Correct!

awesome. for my next riddle:

It burns but it does not consume,
And brightens any dreary room.
More potent than the strongest spells,
Yet delicate as thin egg shells.
A treasure which cannot be held-
It builds men up or sees them felled.

I'll go with the only answer I can think of and say "Love". It's somewhat obvious so I expect it to be the wrong answer. >.>

Astiahl:

Obvious does not necessarily mean wrong, and in this case it isn't.

Or at least its close enough, since its usually "true love" that beats spells, but your answer suffices. Your go

Heh, was raised on the philosophy that "The most obvious answer is likely a herring."...my family loved trick questions.

Of grass and stone,
of iron and bone.
Against your foes,
its body will go.
A spiller of blood,
a protector of brood.
A sign of war and a sign of spring,
crafted by only to most skilled of hand.

("Spring" is hard to rhyme...)
