Riddles in the Dark of Exilian
« on: September 12, 2013, 06:37:46 PM »
I don't think I've seen a riddles thread... So I thought I'd start one :)
Posts attempt to answer the previous riddle and whoever's right posts a new one :)
Easy one to start? :P

The beginning of eternity,
The end of time and space,
The beginning of every end,
The end of every place.

E = mc²
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

By the way it's supposed to be "The end of every place and time" at the end.



A detective found a dead man sitting at his desk with a gun in his hand, and a tape recorder was on his desk... the detective came in and picked up the tape recorder and pressed the play button... he heard "I'm sick of my life. I have no purpose to live" and then a gunshot.

The detective instantly knew it was murder, not suicide. How?

Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Since I'm basically a relict from the ages long past, I know for a fact that tapes need to be stopped and rewinded before being played.

So, that's probably it.

I think Khan's counts as a puzzle more than a traditional riddle...

Right, I'll do one.

My tail is long, my shell is strong
I cannot see, nor hear a sound
I only sense a grasping hand
And the egg that I nestle upon the ground.
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

You're both being way too literal.  :P

Okay, since Khan doesn't seem to be coming up with one, I'll give you all another riddle:

Brighter than a songbird
But rustling like a mouse
Floating like a swift so free
Higher than a house

Once a beast of burden,
Carrying a load,
Then set free to toss and roll,
Down along the road.
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Some kind of a leather ball.

Well with the first bit it made me think of the Sun. But the second bit lost it for me. Are they the one riddle or not?
