Here is a old, but good riddle. A couple of notes though. Don't use the internet to solve the riddles in this section. Also, multiple riddles can be posted unsolved at the same time. Feel free to post whether you are putting on a new riddle or answering an old one. Here is riddle one.


Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters

Here's another one since the last one should be solved easily. This riddle is in the same catagory.

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
It lies behind stars and under hills,
And empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
Ends life, kills laughter.

Kind of morbid right. It should be right up my goblin friends alley.

Wind and dark.
You must look deeper than in my own world for riddles that will stump me, Elf!

I can be long, I can be short, but sometimes I am called tall.
I can entertain, I can destroy lives.
I can cause laughter, I can cause tears.
When I work, I grow, and yet I neither eat, nor drink.
Tell me, what is my name?

Tales is the answer. I went easy on you, but now I shall give you a reall riddle.

Often talked of, never seen,
Ever coming, never been,
Daily looked for, never here,
Still approaching, coming near.
Thousands for it's visit wait
But alas for their fate,
Thou' they expect me to appear,
They will never find me here. ?

That should be minorly harder.

Yes it is. Was I right? And here is another one.

When you are full, you still want to eat it. Even if it is completely dark you still can see it with your naked eyes. If you happen to fall on a heap of cotton, you will suffer from it. And, even if you are completely broke, you still have it. What is this strange thing?

Have fun.

Nothing!

And yes you were right.

Hmmmm... I've seen this one around a lot but I still like it:
My heart is cold, the snow's my breath
I give the ground a grinding death.
My marching makes an end of me,
slain by sun or drowned in sea.

And yet another one

Sometimes it glitters, but often not;
May be cold, or may be hot!
Ever changing though the eye can't measure,
Concealed within are many treasures.
Some find safety beneath its gate,
While some may die beneath its weight!
Old and broken, it brings forth life.

Have fun!

Okay, I am going to try my hand at this, as Elric knows, I am not good at making things up for 20 questions, but I will try this.
Wait, before I do that, are you making these up from your head? cause this one is completly made up! and it should be really easy

Fat and Lazy
descibed as crazy
Always tired
never really admired
low to the ground
extreemly round

Elric, back to yours, about glitter and weight and stuff, the only thing I can come up with is Water. But it doesn't really fit in with the 'old and broken it brings forth life'. So, I don't know.

OK, I will wait to try my hand at Katies hand made riddles, but I will inform on the tried answer. Lady Katheryn I am afraid I must confirm your dubts and tell you no, water is not the answer.

Well, Elric, go ahead, what is your guess at my latest riddle? Since my brother is "pure geneous" I am sure I enhearited part of that, refleting in my riddles! Very Happy (So not true, about my riddles being intelegent I mean)

Okay, Rules so that we don't get bogged down:
1. Max of two riddles by different people being posed at any time. The same person may not post twice.
2. The solver of a riddle gets to ask the next.
3. After five days have passed without a riddle being solved, a new one may be asked by anyone.

Sound fair?

To Katie:
Your comments are quite biting. Though I do not refuse the term genius I believe I just stated I would wait. What was taht about intelegence?

To Azog:
I think those sound like great rules. I will be sure to abide by them in the future. I will even take down one of my own right now.

Great! You jest! Those nearly put me to sleep. The idea with this section is to stimulate the brain not kill it. Well... at least they kept us busy. They served there purpose. now they go to a dumpster far away from me.

Such haste, such hatred. i must say this is not nearly the way to solve riddles they take time adnd perseverence. Though I must say that is quite the riddle you posed Katie. Let me make a small guess. Could it be stars?
