My Contribution:

Green-eye had a problem, he had two irregular shaped containers, one would fill five gallons, and the other three.  The problem was, he needed four gallons.  Because the two containers are irregular, he cannot simply pour out any particular measurement, so how will Green-Eye get 4 gallons?

The answer: Pour three gallons into the three gallon container, then pour that three into the five gallon container so that it has three gallons.  Refill the Three gallon container and pour it into the five gallon container until it's full, this will give you one gallon in the three gallon container.  Pout the five gallon container out, then pour in the one gallon from the three gallon container, refill it and pour in the remaining three gallons so that you have four gallons.
*



I solved this a different way:
Fill the 5 gal container and pour 3 gal into the 3 gal container leaving 2 gal in the 5 gal container. Empty the 3 gal container and pour the 2 gal from the 5 gal container into the 3 gal container. Refill the 5 gal container and pour 1 gal into the 3 gal container leaving 4 gal in the 5 gal container. wink.gif

Ah, good ones!

let's see. I'm not sure about number three, but I go for the moon or the stars. They both burn without fire. (ok, stars do, but they're awfully far away.)
And they light without heat. (right, stars do provide heat, but there isn't much left when it gets here)
And the rising and falling would refer to the movement they make across the sky through night.

yeah, it's the sun. The rest of the thread has all the answers (or at least 98% of them).

Rainer thinks that maybe this one might do:

I mimic everything you do
Throughout the day, I grow taller.
As night descends, I die.

What am I?

Since these riddles went mostly unanswered (and forgotten), I shall reveal the answers.

His beauty shines bright,
and then it darkens.
A line divides him,
but shows history.

VIVEC

Smart you must be,
to kill with me.
Thoughtful you must be,
to wield my power.

SHEHAIi

The tiles of the floor make a picture of a bear.
An Imperial hidden among letters and words. Follow closely.
First the fourth and fifth, then the thirty-fourth, then the thirty-fifth, followed by the thirty-seventh.

TIBER SEPTIM

Inside of us it lives.
A wepon, even a sealent for the re-living.
It can help or hurt your beautiful life.
The masters can find infanite life.

MAGICK

Dancing over the melting base,
I hurt those who would dare dance with me.

FIRE

You lose, I gain.
You drop, I bring you up.
You die, you live.
I am the cause of these and more,
What am I?

NECROMANCER
