Elessar loss’helin posted Posted Wednesday 7th December 2005 in The Golden Perch - Losse's Inn: Riddle Night!

so the threads in The golden perch are a little low here, a difficult thing for many people, in my inn there are 2 rules:

respect what people say
have fun (but you gotta pay for your drinks unless you are someone that i know and that flatter me in some way to get a free drink!)

Well as itz riddle night (and it will be every night)
i will start with a riddle and if someone answers it correctly, they must give us a riddle or pass it to somone else.

so in a way itll be a 'Gollum, Bilbo riddle match, except more than two will be helping out

Example of a riddle:

Thirty white horses on a red hill,
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they stand still

A beautiful classic, but now to my one;

Through it comes vision, unreal sight,
Visits in day even at night,
Enters at will, can bring smiles
Confuses the soul for hours and miles

and ill tell you what, the person who answers this correctly can have a drink on the house!

Elrose Posted Thursday 8th December 2005


*BAAAM* the door slams open and in strides a tall dark ad lean guy...or a short, fat burhobbit (wots that?) anyway, the important thing is that Elrose has arived! "A dream dear inkkeper! i was visited in the night! by a dream! it said that the answer to youre riddle was "a dream" and that evn if it isnt that you, being such a fine and handsome innkeep will give me a free drink!
okay Ama fair enough, i can see the mix up , it could be entered for either RP or TGP, im okay with that.
Aaaah yes my good friend Elrose, well done my lad, you may have a free beverage would you like to give us a riddle now?? Losse stepped down and stood behind the bar wiping some glasses clean for ready new customers
Suddenly a tall slender man burst through the door.He was very tall,a human tree and he sat down and said,"Gimme some vodka ."and he managed to mutter "Please."
"you seem in a rush but now your not, you aint gonna rush this coz this is my very special vodka, it was shipped in from Beleriand. Enjoy, now pay up!!" Turning to Elrose, have you thought of one yet, im interested in what your riddle is"

haha riddle master srtikes :-P uhh ok...


oooo ya....

Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is

lol good one Elrose but I, RANELERA, am much too clever for your petty games (j/k) but the third word in THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE is language lol
1. the
2. english
lol but have to give props to icey for the answer, she helped me!
Do i get a free drink as well? lol

Lets see, my riddle to you is:
Born at the same time as the world, destined to live as long as the world, and yet never five weeks old. What is it?
'very clever, that would have bugged me till and i would have gone mad

hmm i will give you a free drink only if i know you or as i said before, you flatter me in some way.

im waiting!!'
hmm lets see, where to begin. . . . . .you ar the most ravishing, most talented, most intelligent, bestest artist, most all out auwsome person on this site!
oh my oh my, you do do anything for a drink (i think that guys really desparate for a drink) only kidding my frend, here you go, dont drink to quickly it will burn your throat, this is pretty strong stuff. (um what do you mean by the bestest artist ever, how did you know are you stalking me?)
oh yes your riddle, this is very tough, it must be a planet or something to do with as old as the earth, could it be the moon, as there is a new moon every five weeks?
lol I WOULD NEVER STALK YOU while your supsecting it anyway. And yes, it is the moon! good job!!
why thank you and i no u woodnt stalk me hehe

my riddle

What is black when you buy it, red when you use it and gray when you throw it away?

Elrose: hopefully this wont be as easy haha
hmmm I am almost sure that this isnt right, but maybe Charcoal? or a Cigar?
Oh my you are a clever guy arent you yes it is charcoal,

Losse stepped down and turned to whoever wanted the next drink, and wiped some glasses saying to himself "hmm it seems to me that this place is turning into a man only joint, gotta attract some 'non male' people" and continued to serve the customers
well, just to let you know, there is already one female here *exum* ME! gosh, why does everyone think I am a guy? I didn't think my name sounded like a guy's name???
oh my *blush*, um i did say this is TURNING out to be a male only bar, so its turning out to be one of course i knew that you were a lady, its just its beginning to turn out to be one hehe

im sorry i upset you, ill make it up to you what can i do? have a drink? you want me to flatter you this time? i dont mind haha but please answer and tell us your riddle.

i wouldnt mind if you did stalk me does that make up for it haha
lol sure! very nice cover up And no offense taken, I am not upset at all. Lets seeeee, for my riddle I will choose. . . . . . . . ahah

I am, in truth, a yellow fork
From tables in the sky
By inadvertent fingers dropped
The awful cutlery.
Of mansions never quite disclosed
And never quite concealed
The apparatus of the dark
To ignorance revealed.

It might be difficult to understand at first, but maybe after a few times of reading it. . . . .
Ice phases through the floor, appearing near Rane. "I want to say a star, and did I say a STAR, would I be right?" she asked, smiling.
ooohhh I am very sorry Icey but that is not the correct answer, but for your determination and kindness to me, I will let you have a sip of my drink! lol
"Oh, you are so nice!" Icey said sarcastically, then pulled a silvery wrapped box from behind her back and handed it to Rane. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!" she yelled.
YYYAAAAAHHHHH! THANK YOU ICEY!!!! Rane quickly jumps up to hug Icey, and plops down on the nearest stool. She wrips off the silver paper and opens the box to find.................SOCKS!!!! LOL
"Wait, wait, that's my dry-cleaning, here's-" she pulls a another silver-wrapped box from her bag and hands it Rane. "-your birphday present!" Ice screams, snatching the socks and tossing the other box in her lap.
" yahhhhh! and this box is bigger!!" She wrips off the paper and opens the box to reveal a red cape with and orange and pink design on the back in the shape of some sort of bird. . . . . maybe a pheonix?" OHHHH MY GOSH! I LOVE IT!!!!" Rane jumps up and down in the fashion of a 4 year old hugging the cape to her chest!" Now, time for someone to figure out my riddle!!!"
'my my my this is getting interesting' Losse thought as he turned and ran down stairs to find something quick to give to HER (got it rite this timeSmile Smilie ) he came running up the stairs and placed a big bag with a large chain on it onto the table that she was standing by and said 'u should have told me this earlier i would have turned this place into a palace for you today' and turned to the bar to meditate on that there riddle.
"awwww! Thank you! I don't like telling people it is my birthday because I don't like to be the center of attention like that." To give you a hint with my riddle, its something that you all have seen before, but not something that you see everyday. . . . . .
'thats alrite anytime' leaning over the counter top, 'but you havnt opened it yet, haha enjoy!'

talking to himself Losse said 'a yellow fork from the sky above, a fork of lightening is a yellow fork, is it lightening because that is something you have seen but not what you see everyday, now turning to Rane he said 'is it lightening?'

RaneLera: that was a nice touch you put into 'the wedding story' hilarious!!!
"*clap**clap*!! Very good!!! Lighting is the correct answer!!!!Well done!" Rane said applauding and giving him a slap on the back. "Sorry for my ignorance of not opening the gift, I very much liked the bag! lol What is it?" She peeks in the bag before taking it out and gasps because her gift is. . . . . . . .

( I will let you decide what the gift is since it was given by you, and yeah, I was bored and had always wondered what the wedding story was, so i made a quick comment!)
she takes the chain off the bag and peers inside to find a glass bottle tinted blue with a layer of glass overlaying it in the shape of a curling hand, inside a pale black liquid that had dots of light dotted about inside. 'this bottle is very special' Losse said to Rane, 'it is yours now, therefore you will be it's property, and it will help you in some things, when you are sad the liquid turns bright and the stars inside will brighten up your day, when you are happy, it relaxes and is calm, waiting for you peer inside. It will in fact show you anything you want it is yours, d'you understand, as long as you dont ask it what the answer to my riddle is ok?' Losse smiled and stood up to say his riddle

'What do you throw out when you want to use it but take in when you don't want to use it?'
"Aww, thank you, it is very beautiful!" Rane snuck over to the corner to try and ask the bottle about Losses riddle in secresy, but decided not to." I guess it is better just to use my wits!" hmmmmm. . . . . . . I am still not sure!
"What wits?" Ice piped in from across the room. She walked over to them and said, "I believe the answer to your riddle is, well, I'll guess the TRASH!" She shook her head, " Don't know why I guessed that, I just came over to have a chance to insult Rane," she said the a grin.
Yes, see trash is what I thought too, but I wasn't sure, and since I have had my turn in guessing a riddle, I figured I would let someone else!" oh be quiet Icey!"
'oh my no! trash is not the answer good but....wait no thats not a good answer hehe' Losse said chuckling to himself on the great riddle that no-one knows the answer to!! ' i hope you like it Rane, its very cool' looking at Rane and chuckled again.
"Hmmm I still have no idea........ Maybe if I had a hint???"
WAIT!!! Is it something like a blanket or a rug or something like that????
no no no good try but know and chuckled once more hehe
"I dun't know!" Ice screamed, pounding her head on a table.
'hehehehe i win!!!'

why thank you and i no u woodnt stalk me hehe

my riddle

What is black when you buy it, red when you use it and gray when you throw it away?

OOH!! A newspaper! sorry if that's already been answered OK, here's mine

you can see it, it's weightless and if you put it in a barrel it will make the barrel lighter what is it?

ooh! and another

How far can you walk into the woods?
Well that wasnt the riddle i put it was

'What do you throw out when you want to use it but take in when you don't want to use it?'

To the previous riddle i put, it was charcoal, red when you use it black when you buy it and grey when your finished with it Big Smile Smilie

In answer to your riddle, a hole is something that is weightless sometihng you see and when put in a barrel it makes it lighter, to your second one, you can walk half way into the woods but walk out of the woods the other half Orc Grinning Smilie

Im very glad youve reawakened this thread!!!
no problem! well done with those two riddles! You are a very skilled riddler!
Riddler, Riddler, ask me why the birds fly free on a mackerel sky, ask me whither goes the winds,
whence the endless tick-tick stream begins.
now Vir, is this an actual riddle or is it just a retorical qustion???
