Riddle #10:
There is a castle,
And there are smaller castles.

The highest order of castles,
Is great with rooms.

Between floors twenty and thirty,
Among those rooms,
Is the room of funny theories.

Slick_rick gave us the answer to number 10, so on to riddle 11!
I have opened Pandora's Box that freed a God,
Something to regret for the next six years and eight months.

Now I seek the sticking place, where it may not follow,
But there are five and twenty paths, and the God can do anything,
Manipulates and alters everything, what am I to trust?

It never seems to retire...
But, what's this... with a second glance, the one path I require!
No arguing, no debate, I'll follow the path.

So, a conundrum of sorts; what solutions will I find,
And will they ease my troubled mind?

Almost a week since the riddle was posted, and no close guesses, so a hint: you're looking for something related to a series.

brocko has provided us with a correct asnwer. Hopefully he'll explain why while NightWish gets me the next riddle.

More thinking outside the box time

Riddle 12:
I am bound by an "eccentric" beginning and an even end.
Within, I am infinite and finite at the same time.
Wherever I go I cause distress.
My origin? An amalgam of Latin and Arabic.
Who am I?

As it has been a week you can have a hint: take the last line literally. That's all you're getting for now.

Ugh~ to all those who've been waiting for the next riddle, very sorry this post took a long time to appear: I thought I had posted it the weekend before last, but apparently I only previewed it or I failed in some other way. T_T


For the sake of speed, as I won't be around much/at all for two weeks, I'm going to skip getting Kairin to post the next riddle and do it myself:
Find me at my lofty peak
Bearing colours bold and meek.
Even now I am changing still,
But where this path leads never will.
I can't remember how many revisions we had of this one, so hopefully I'm posting the correct one. At this point I seem to be out of riddles (at least without going back to the previous riddle authors), I must have assumed I'd get more by now... so unless I do (get some new ones) I'll be doubling up on authors.

Felix solved the last riddle (number 13; NightWish forgot to put the number in the post). The answer was the forum's main/home page (http://forums.animesuki.com/), which is the link ("path") attached to the banner at the top of the page!

So without further ado: Riddle Number 14:
Brave adventurers always seeked me out,
For I was the symbol of treasure.
Sad I am now, stranger in a foreign land.
My purpose, reversed. My will, no longer my own.
Another cryptic one, so you can guess who wrote it

No solution to number 14 yet? Well, it has been two weeks so... as NightWish didn't give me any hints to post for it, maybe Felix will give you the solution or, leave it until the end of the contest, just in case you want more time and hints?

In the meantime, on to Riddle Number 15:
Dear reader,

There used to be this girl I really liked back in the days.
At the time lots of people were talking about her tales.
A few years ago she suddenly disappeared though, and
it left us all in tears. We only have some pictures to proof
her existence now. There were a few pictures in particular
that meant a lot to me. I've been searching and searching,
but I can't seem to find them anywhere. It's not like they
flew away, right? When I asked my friend, he only gave
me one code:

"11.17.217"

Can you help me out?

Regards,
...

Felix has given the answer to riddle 14. I thought a hint was due for riddle 15, but the author isn't around, it seems, so in the mean time I was going to say you're looking for a post...

... but it seems that brocko is indeed right on the money. Well done.

Time to look for another riddle...

Should have posted this days ago; somehow I keep getting called away mid-preview, convinced I've actually posted an update...

While I'm trying to work out what riddle to use next, Felix has given me a couple of new hints and a summary of the previous ones to post for riddle #1:
Quote:
New hints for #1:
  • Try using only mod.
  • You can’t solve it though brute force.
Summary of other hints for #1:
  • There are more than five anomalies.
  • You are trying to find the princess’s user profile.
  • It involves math.
  • Time is irrelevant.
  • You can solve the riddle without math by guessing who fits the story.
  • The profile is active and the princess is not a lurker (meaning she has at least 100 posts)
  • You’ll know you’ve found her when you stumble on her profile.
Also, the following offer for those attempting to answer it:

The belated Riddle Number 16 was submitted only very recently:
While cautiously making my way through the bazaar, I came across a small, unidentified stall selling seemingly mysterious items. Being as curious as I am, I wasn't able to leave empty handed.

I purchased some form of summoning rod, that would supposedly allow me to control all manner of fiery beasts and demons. However, I'm not able to read the
inscription. It seems I need to offer a certain something to the beasts I wish to summon using the rod. Etched into the rod is the following:
10
10.3, 4.33, 7.21, 11.10, 6.13, 3.12, 20.J

It has been a while so a hint for Riddle Number 16: To get to the root of the problem, find a characteristic befitting an inferior thing that goes with: touch, 1st, 64 and the first number in the riddle.

The answer to Riddle Number 16 hasn't been found, so here it is: COOKIES

Each number in the code was a radix ("base") followed by a number in that base, e.g. In base 20, J is 19 (not skipping "i"), and in turn S is the 19th letter of the alphabet. If the bazaar is the forum, full of interesting things, the place to find how to use them is written in the FAQ. Search the FAQ for cookies to find the link. On reflection, plausible explanations could have been made for links to reputation related threads too, but it never even got that far.

Riddle 17:
I truly believe that I can be the winner
Of this horrid, bloody battle. I
Think that if I have a little luck
Then I can finally beat every single person against me with whom I play.
A place of much critical acclaim, of
Fans everywhere.Despite what some argue,
I know that I was destined to win. Are
You willing to help me win, too?
Blood and tears are constantly shed
As everyone tries their hardest to define fate.
I think this one is more along the line of the original contest, so with some luck it will last just long enough that people won't feel it is unsolvable and give up.

Well done to Golden Dream and a thank you to Komari for overseeing the last riddle.

I don't have riddle number 18 confirmed yet, but Kairin will post it here just as soon as I do.

Riddle Number 18!
I haven't wings or guns or air,
only stars and dumplings
People loved me in my day
but now moved on to other things
and I've become a Carnival of Rust.
The Key to finding me is in my origin.

I think Komari solved the last riddle, very quickly, so... wow, riddle number 19 already!
The Anglestone of Origins in a village called Papua New Guinea,
inhabited of about seventeen reaching the power of four high up in the
mountain, Dismissed from the minds of many, not what one is looking
for, through the power of mysterious outside forces.

These forces you ask? The many villagers speak of the torrential
downpour of the raining feline plauge, or the outbreak in river
streams being contaminated with expired rolls of burnt food. The list
continues as less make the "easy" pilgramige to the sacred Anglestone.

The pilgramige you ask? The villagers only need to sacrifice their
home to be whisked away to the Anglestone of Origins, while to return,
they only need to recall how to reconstruct where they just had lived.
As more and more villagers become initiated into Papua New Guinea, the
Anglestone becomes forgotten by most.

The Anglestone you ask? It is a carefully planned athenaeum of the
Gods these villagers worship. The Chiefs in the village are the chosen
ones for its preservation, but because the forces over time defiled
the sanctity of the stone through loss of conciseness, the Chiefs have
decided to open a battleground in the lower valley of the mountain--to
decide the fate of the sacred stone.

The battle you ask? The village has been divided; many that live up in
the mountain saying the end is long overdue, while the rest live in
the Anglestone itself. The battle will decide if the stone will be
left untouched forever falling into the sea of dark oblivion, or
continue on into the infinitesimal. As everything is coming to an end;
Will it be decided in battle or compromise, or somewhere in the
distant future?

The end is near, riddle number 20 is upon us:
I'm a dweller of the seas deep below.
Yet my eyes see all things.
Even the spirits of the other-world are visible to me.
What am I?
