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...)

Astiahl:

crafted by only to most skilled of hand.

Is that a typo?
if not I would have to say a blade.

Jammy Fingers:

Correct! Yes that is a typo. Your turn!

Edit: Doh wrong thread.

Anyone going to post a new riddle? :<

Easy one for you all:

What is put on a table, cut, but never eaten?

Bread crust?

Its a deck of cards. That was really easy.

One of Dexter Morgan's victims.

EDIT: Oh look. The person who actually solved the riddle has a Dexter avatar. Didn't notice that.

You know what, for such an amazing answer, you win.

But seriously, it's a table cloth.

I feel its a bell. but also a shoe can speak whilst you walk. but I'd have to say a bell

Oh, cool.

There is a murder in a park in broad daylight and over 100 people see it. Why does no one interfere or call the police?

they are crows

black_knight1337:
they are crows

Yup, you're up.

what am i?
i am at the beginning of the end and at the end of space and time

A truthful antiphon to the proposal aloft must follow as a glyph, fifth in this group that I am using, that has not shown its capitulum in this post so far.

yep, ur up

A group of programmers designed a program for a robot to cross a small street. The robot would see if there was a vehicle within 100m to its left and right, and if there wasn't, it would quickly cross the street. When they came back five hours later, the robot had not yet crossed, despite there being little to no traffic on the street. Why did it not cross?

Either it saw a parked car, or it was counting itself as a vehicle.

[EDIT]
I guess that's technically two guesses, so my guess is that it saw a parked car.

Yup. There was a parked car.

Seeing as how Keiros has not yet posted a riddle, I guess I'll post my own to keep the thread going:

I dig out tiny caves and store gold and silver in them. I also build bridges of silver and make crowns of gold. They are the smallest you could imagine. Sooner or later everybody needs my help yet many people are afraid to let me help them. Who am I?

You're a dentist!
(at first I thought you were a minecraft player, but this makes much much more sense.)

Dentist.

Him.

Where is everyone? here`s a riddle to keep the thread alive...

What can go up a drainpipe down, but not down a drainpipe up?
