So I looked up the answer..... This may become my favorite letter..... but for the time I spent trying to figure it out.... UGH DAMN RIDDLE. Freaking good one.

 

But two can play at that level.

 

Decapitate me and all becomes equal. Then truncate me and I become second.

Cut me front and back and I become two less than I started.

What am I?

For the record nobody has the right answer yet. Also i dunno what Ice's is but i will try to figure it out once i can sit down with a pen and paper.

I suppose a hint at mine for people: the answer is a letter.

O~h, it's one of those types. Now I get it, it's the letter 'N'.

 

I have a vague idea for Ice's, so I'll see if I can figure it out soon.

Yea these ones are beyond me, googled it, never would have gotten that in a hundred years. Nope. Not to mention I didn't know what truncate meant so I googled that as well, and well... the definition mislead me even further.

Yajuu is correct.

As for Ice's, initially i felt that it was also a letter solution, or perhaps a number. I assumed initially that the descriptors would indicate where to cut parts of the letter or number away to make new symbols that relate, but I've since disregarded that.

I now believe this is similar to a previous riddle involving the removing of letters from a word, which i answered earlier as "heroine". This would be easy if we knew the starter word but that would defeat the purpose. So at the very least i know how to solve the word, based on the methods of the previous riddle.

The first hint implies removing the first letter of the solution word.

The second letter implies removing the last letter.

The third requires removing both sides of what remains. If we follow the same formula this means removing 1 letter on each side.

The final implies that it is two less than the original. This makes no sense as a number since we have removed four, not two.

So this implies a symbolic number, i.e a roman numeral. So if we know there are at least 5 letters. So 2 less than 5 is 3 or III, which does not work. If there were three IIIs remaining then the total plus the other four we removed would be...seven.

Hmm...seven.

Seven

Remove thw first letter

Even - in suppose that is "equal"

Remove the last.

Eve - this could be be classed as being "2nd"

Lets take the last two away

V - roman numeral for 5. Seven is two higher than five, but the word is 5 letters and thus fits our process.

That took me two fucking hours. And most of that time was spent being completely off base. That kne was hard. Nice easy riddle next plz!

I enjoy Mind Trapped with those strangers than come over and hang out regularly and whenever we encounter riddles like this we'll give the hint that they're "Black Magic." I started it one day when I was playing with my little brother, reading the riddles to him and I know he's a super logical thinker so if I couldn't get it there was no way he ever would, so I'd tell him "This one's definitely black magic," and it just became a thing. None of us have the patience to spend TWO FUCKING HOURS trying to figure out a riddle, usually we'll give it like 3 minutes. ^^;

In fairness if i had even ab average level of intelligence i probably could have figured it out quicker.

Dude! I'm impressed! Go Kyo!

Easy riddle it is.

I'm often seen around a lot, referred to many ways,

See me black and you may find misfortune haunts your days.

Tell a thing, that should have been kept quiet, to all around,

Then look inside the sack, there I'm no longer to be found.

Nosiness, prying, snooping, leaves me fearing, full of dread,

For all these things are likely to see me soon lying dead.

These clues combined should start to give a picture, an idea,

Of who or what I am, so can you tell me? Is it clear?

....you could do the number seven but you can't do this one? It's easy. Don't over think it. Leme know if anyone needs hints (which will be me just recording it)

Yep!

I've been drawn by the artists these days, and of old;

Yet I'm seen only when all around me is cold.

For most of the time you just live and ignore me;

Then you gasp for me, stop for me, mutter below me.

You might say, in surprise, I've been taken away,

But it's true I've been with you, at least 'til today.

When I leave you, you leave too!

Who am I?

It's specifically breath, since this one's also referencing a bunch of expressions using the term.

And don't worry about the rhymes, just look at the lines :p

What king can you make if you take

the head of a lamb

the middle of a pig

the hind of a buffalo

and the tail of a dragon?

Yep!

 

The first is needed to make quotes you see,

and it often sticks up when it's time for noon tea.

 

The second's biggest distinction is found

Bearing the symbol of love that is bound.

 

The third should be biggest but that can depend,

Never standing alone or it may offend.

 

The fourth is often used when making a selection

Or if you should need a gun for protection.

 

The fifth is the fattest and oddest by far

And can sometimes be found in a wrestling war.

 

What are they?

Good!

 

My rings tell such a story

Of years past with gracious glory

Where I live is where I stay

From that spot I cannot stray

From my home man taketh me

So they can erect another home, you see

Many others bore into my sides

These things that crawl and things that glide

I weep with beauty or stand with grace

Every year I shed myself to nourish my place.

 

What am I?

A group of four brothers did travel the land

with only one steed shared among the whole band.

Though always surefooted, no matter the weather,

their mount would go lame if they didn't ride together.

When one of the brothers was thrown and misplaced,

he was left where he lay and was quickly replaced.

When the ride became old and the brothers not needed,

to a game for all ages they simply retreated.

When many a player would fling them about,

and ringing a post was the victory shout.

 

Name us.
