    This thread is not linked to my giveaway, no. It's in a poor state of repair as-is without me giving away extra codes for a competition :P

    Also, pretty sure you guys are overlooking the obvious -- it's a puzzle piece, no?

    Also remember that the person who guesses the riddle gets the next turn... I'm pretty sure we already skipped over someone. Not sure if they were just gone too long and didn't take their turn or what (I've been absent a while too).

    A dead tree. A seed. An acorn. A fruit.
    Nyeeeeeeh. Super close, but no cigar. I'm being a bit specific here, sorry :/

    Grapes?
    ... Nope.

    I'm pretty sure it's a dead tree.
    Yeah, but trees can be dead in all sorts of states, really...

    Hollow tree trunk ?
    That's what I'm after :) Good job :3

    A tree? The hordes seem to be leaf-cutter ants eating a feast of leaves.
    Not quite specific enough. It was a tree, or at very least a part of one.

    Quote from MESSI_J

    Its stupid but...maybe its food or human :D .
    Nope :)

    Quote from TheWizeRedOne

    A church hall of some sort?
    Nope :)

    Quote from GurdStuffTechnic

    Question phase begin? If so, is it a part of nature?
    If no, is it a river? A pond? A forest? A jungle? A branch? A tree?

    A jungle temple in Minecraft?
    Yes, part of nature. Not a branch, but it definitely was a tree.

    Quote from MESSI_J

    Its a tree.The hall is the tree and the horde are the insects.The insects eat the leaves and the tree now is only branches.Again sorry for my bad english :D .I hope you understand what im saying :D .
    Not quite, no. One eats on the inside of a hall, not on the outside of it. Calling a tree a hall is like saying the engine of a car is the same as its paint job. (My metaphors are tired; it's a bloody hot day, sorry)

    Quote from MESSI_J

    Maybe the horde actually is a WOODCUTTER TA TA TAAAAA :o .And the hall is a tree DOULBE TA TA TAAAAA :o .
    No. There never really were "hordes" of woodcutters. There were small groups, though, and even these days they use machinery in favour of huge groups. "Horde" implies hundreds and thousands and millions of individuals, really. It's generally an uncountable multitude.


    You're getting close guys; it was a tree, but it's not anymore...

    A lift, a water pipe, a windpipe, esophagus, sewerage tunnel, water mains, gas mains, electricity wire, pylons and current...hmmm
    Oh, good, getting ever so slightly closer, but your lists are still looking a little... artificial.

    Quote from GurdStuffTechnic

    I hate these...

    I'm pretty sure that this could be "virtually" anything. Is it a corrupted computer file? Is it a limousine? Is it the stomach? I'm completely clueless...

    Otherwise, I think this is dependent on knowledge of what the hordes are, and in that case, you could be being as indecisive as possible.

    Overall, I feel like not enough evidence has been given. It's either that I'm thinking about it the wrong way or that this is dependent on some sort of previous knowledge...

    Hint, please?
    I could have made it more specific, aye, but I have yet to find an 'alternate' answer that adequately satisfies every facet of the riddle. See below for hint.

    Quote from GurdStuffTechnic

    Ok, new idea. Is it the digestive tract? The intestines?
    Nope :)

    Quote from XXzPandaBoyzXX

    A bird? A pipebomb thrown down from heaven?
    Dunno where you got bird from, but nope... and no, no explosives are involved whatsoever.

    Quote from GurdStuffTechnic

    update please?
    Sorry, I've been away for a couple days :s

    HINT: The hordes, and their associated brethren, often travel under an incomplete green ceiling. The hordes themselves are partially responsible for making the 'hall' in the first place, amidst their feast.

    Nope. Reasonably close, though, I suppose. In a sense.

    It's okay. I was just really confused for a second :P

    Quote from GurdStuffTechnic

    The hall that now leads on once lead from earth to air.
    Devoured by the hordes, till all the Food is gone, now the hall is Bare; a kingdom for the Lords.

    Time to break this apart.
    Not the whole riddle, but little pieces at a time.
    First, "The hall that now leads on" got me thinking. It's a hallway, some sort of banquet hall or dining hall, or something unique, but this is definitely an exact word usage for what it is. The question is: Is it the proper word usage or is it a play on reality?
    Second, you have to focus on the punctuation as it should be edited as "The hall that now leads on once led from earth to air."
    So, it's a hall that used to lead from earth to air but now leads on. Question: What is "on"?
    "on" as in "onwards". And knowing me, I never really describe things exactly as they are. I use comparisons, metaphor, and so forth to the end of time before I ever describe anything plain.

    Quote from GurdStuffTechnic

    Devoured by the hordes till all the Food is gone is a full thought. So obviously it has to do with food, perhaps a banquet hall.

    Now the hall is bare; a kingdom for the lords.

    So here we have a timeline.
    Well, yes and no. Thinking too literal, as most do. Remember food is not strictly limited to the human concept, and there are many things we would consider a very far cry from food that are still, in fact, food, or things that appear to be food from some perspectives.

    Quote from GurdStuffTechnic

    "Once lead from earth to air" comes first because it's a past tense. Next is "Devoured by the hordes, till all the food is gone" because it is an event taking place in between. And "now" sentences such as "The hall that now leads on" and "Now the hall is bare". Lastly is the description of the hall now "a kingdom for the lords". The lords seem to be some sort of gods, since no person would be in a bare hall that has been devoured by "the hordes". Questions: What are "the hordes"? and what is "the food"?
    Again, too literal. Merely because the "hall" is now bare does not mean it is inherently less useful or important than it was. Its use has simply changed hands, so to speak.
    I can't tell you what the hordes are, but that is probably one of the only literal things in the riddle. It is not a metaphor, although it is very uncommon for people to refer to these particular things as hordes. We use a different word, these days. The food is whatever the horde eats. Again, simply telling you exactly what that is would be a bit of a dead giveaway.

    Quote from GurdStuffTechnic

    So let's look at what we have. As far as we know, it's a banquet hall that is bare because "the hordes" devoured all the food. Also, the hall now leads on... I have no idea what you're talking about...

    EDIT - "it" is a word used to explain something as a generic object... If that's what you were looking for.

    I also realized the it is the banquet hall.

    SO... An bare banquet hall?
    In a sense, yes, but not the literal sense in any of those words. The hall is bare. Correct. In the sense of being devoid of food, yes, but also in another way. It is, in a way, a banquet hall, but again not literally. And it's not even really a hall. It's a word that makes sense in the fashion I've constructed the riddle... but it's not the literal reality.

    Oh, and... I never describe something as "it" unless there really is no other way. "it" gives zero information, whereas metaphors give similarities and comparisons that assist in deconstructing the riddle.

    Jeez guys, you could at least try to spell my name right xD

    Um, but yeah. Try and stick to one, hm? It just gets horribly haphazard and messy, otherwise. Here:

    The hall that now leads on
    Once led from earth to air.
    Devoured by the hordes,
    Till all the food is gone,
    Now the hall is bare;
    A kingdom for the Lords.

    What is it?

    Quote from Jack_LVXXIII

    here's a good riddle
    No legs sits on four legs
    by two legs sitting on 3 legs
    four legs got some

    Hint: the answer can be found in a book
    Hint: the bottom four legs is not the same as top four legs
    Give your answer replacing the amount of legs with the name of what it is
    Using famous riddles is generally a silly idea. We know them all.
    Fish/(Other food) sits on table,
    By a man sitting on a stool.
    Cat/Dog/(other four-legged pet) got some.

    Also, sorry I've been gone so long, guys!

    Quote from DismalAmoeba

    Riddle: (this is probably easy)

    I've been famous since my premiere,
    But forever alone for no one to see,
    I always talk, and all can hear,
    But no one can ever talk back to me.
    A film?

    Matches are red when you buy them, black when you use them, and stay black when you throw them away (assuming they completely burn, of course). So it looks like coal is the answer. Now, do you guys have a really fiendish riddle or am I going to have to make you think properly for once? :3
