Riddle Me This

Postby Rydlen on Mon Aug 08, 2011 4:47 am

I thought I'd start this little thing here where I post a riddle and see who can be the first one to answer it correctly. I've always loved riddles. They get the gears moving in my head, which are often covered by cobwebs since the life I'm currently stuck with involves very little thinking.
Every time Someone gets the answer, I will post the answer to the riddle as well as the one who got it. I will try to check back at least once a day for a winner.
These are not all my Riddles. A lot of em I look for and try to answer myself before looking up the answer.
The first riddle, some will notice that it's been in my sig for a while, is as follows:

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beast, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountains down.


What is it?

I'd guess time, but also nightmares just cause.

Dang... First reply and they get it.
Yes. The answer is Time.

And Ilvos, answer is Silence.

Here's one that may be a bit harder.

Though desert men once called me God,
To-day men call me mad,
For I wag my tail when I am angry,
And growl when I am glad.

Very good Dream-Weaver. Yes, the correct answer is a Cat. Wtf these are going to fast XD
And I was supposed to be the ones posting the Riddles -_-
But if you're looking for an answer you wont get it from me cuz I'll just ruin everyone elses fun. Instead I will keep posting my own.


Ok this one stumped everyone in the Chat room when I posted it so it should get you all as well.
So Mandy, or anyone else who saw it can't answer.

My first wears my second; my third might be
What my first would acquire if he went to the sea.
Put together my one, two, three
And the belle of New York is the girl for me.

I just realized that your user name "Rydlen" sounds like "Riddle'n"

That's clever...

Very good Twi. That is correct.
The three answers are: Man, Hat, and Tan
Putting them together you get Manhattan, Belle of New York being the Statue of Liberty XD

On to the next one!
( This one I actually nabbed in a game and had no Idea what it was so I guessed and got it right XD )

For our ambrosia we were blessed,
by Jupiter, with a sting of death.
Though our might, to some is jest,
we have quelled the dragon's breath.
Who are we?


Now if you know the answer right away or really fast, PM me the answer instead. It holds your place for the winning answer without giving it away for other people who might not know it. I will post the winner when the next Riddle goes up.
