    Several years ago i played a computer fantasy rpg (trying to remember the name of the game) that had lockboxes with a riddle and letter-wheels you could turn until you got the correct answer. It had many of the riddles in this thread, and many more. Ill try to do some creative google search. Maybe I can find out the name of the game...

    Rain/water
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down.
    Rain/water

    Edit: Blame my language for this. In finnish, extracting oxygen with gills is called breathing :P

    Ah I remember, Fish

    It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
    Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
    It lies behind stars and under hills,
    And empty holes it fills.
    It comes first and follows after,
    Ends life, kills laughter.

    Sometimes I scream
    Sometimes I Moan
    Sometimes you cannot hear me
    And I do not have a throat

    The man who keeps it doesnt want it
    The man who buys it doesnt need it
    The man who needs it doesnt know it


    If you orally ask "There are thirty wolves, twenty ate sheep. How many didnt?" you will confuse many and laugh.
