First, THERE'S ONLY. ONE. RIDDLE. AT. A. TIME. Yeah, we know, you don't want to wait to use that great riddle you've got, but you have to earn the right to post it. Get the riddle right, and you get the floor, and are free to post your riddle, as long as it follows the rest of the rules. If the riddler who has the floor is going to be away for a while or something, and gives permission to post a filler riddle, then feel free, but remember that it's just that: filler. When they return, your riddle (assuming it hasn't been solved) is null.

Regarding your riddle, it needs to meet a few specifications. First, it can be anything: a person, enemy, object, whatever. As long as you can write a riddle that has enough detail we could feasibly get it, it's okay. Second, you have to state what game you're talking about. No, it is not fun for us to guess between the 15 or so games in the series to find that one little detail you were thinking of from MM, as hard as that is to believe. Finally, try to make it rhyme. It doesn't have to, but it's good form, and it shouldn't be that difficult to throw in a rhyme or two.

If you guess correctly and get the floor, then you've got a new section of rules to deal with. First, you've got two days to post a riddle after you get the floor. If you're not going to post one, then say so as soon as you can so we can open it up to anyone. More often than not, if you take too long, filler will pop up, but the floor's still yours for two days from the minute your answer is confirmed as correct. Second, you have to respond to guesses at least once every 24 hours. Seriously, it takes like five minutes at most to come on here and say "Nope, no one's right yet." You can do that at least once a day. Finally, if someone posts something that answers your riddle, you can't disprove it, and the board approves of it, then you have to take that as the answer, no questions asked. You can tell us what you were actually looking for, and then we can move on.

So that's all the rules, these are just a few suggestions for writing your riddle.

- Read over your riddle a few times before you post it. Does it require any huge leaps of logic to answer? What makes sense to you, may be absolute bogus to us, so try and keep things logical.

- There should only be one answer to your riddle. If it's well written, it should have no other answers other than the one you're thinking of, which also prevents us from having to invoke rule 7, a win-win situation for us all.

- Have a few hints ready. Sometimes your riddle is a lot harder than you thought it was. Maybe you intentionally made it hard. Either way, have some ready just in case.
tl;dr Section: (Credit goes to AtmaX)

1. The object can be anything from items, to people, to enemies, whatever
2. Say what game you are talking about. (Read the second post for rules about this)
3. If you got the correct answer, you have to post a new riddle in a maximum of 2 days otherwise someone can create his own riddle and post it.
4. If you can't think of a riddle say it as soon as you can so somebody else can take over.
5. Try to make it rhyme (but it doesn't have to)
6. You must respond to guesses at least once every 24 hours. If you fail to update, your riddle will be thrown out and the floor will be open to anyone.
7. If someone makes a guess, and they can justify it as correct, with the board's approval, you have to accept it as the answer, even if it's not what you were looking for.

Current riddle by JoshuaColquhoun:

Skyward Sword (minor spoilers)

A wonderful gift I have for you,
If you're brave enough to go for it,
But Courage alone is not enough,
The Hero needs speed in order to win.
And when you succeed, wait, there's more!
My true secret is finally revealed!

The riddle refers to the actual "gift" itself.

Having not finished the game yet, I will abstain from guessing. But as for everyone else, have at it!

Allow me to post the incorrect guesses so far:

Double Clawshots
Hylian Shield
Spirit in the Sealed Grounds
Goddess Sword.

And my riddle has carried over topics. I'm so happy.

I was thinking about the little islands with holes in them that gives you a speed boost while flying. So my answer would be speed boosts.

Or the Isle of Songs. (you need courage because it's in a thunderhead cloud, and you need speed to outlfy those flying centipede things.)

None of the above are correct. It's like you guys aren't taking the whole of the riddle into consideration, and a lot of you are focussing too much on the speed aspect.

That crest thingie that goes into the eye socket of the statue in Skyloft. I forget what it was called.
