No it's not "Life" or "Idol."  In both riddles the word is a plural word and it's only 4 letters.  I'm sure "Yahtzee" Crowshaw would get the first one.  And really, fire up that imagination and burn out that second one.

1. (4 letter word)
You can count on them, though
Some would rather curse them.
You can speak dear to them,
Though we all know 'tis just in vain.
How about foes?

(Smacks face)

The answer to #1 is "DICE."
The answer to #2 is "LOGS."

1. When it is stout
People gladly tread.
When it is thin,
People walk in dread.

2. With these
The meat and
Bones of the dead
Can be used to trap the living.

3. It is a journey whose path
Depends on another's vision
Of where it ends.

"Traps" was correct, as was "Book."  #1 has yet to be answered.

Hmm, if #1 is not "Ice", then it might be... Bridge?

Yes bridge is correct.  I'll allow the other riddle to be solved before adding new ones.

McKennedy's riddle wasn't answered yet.  I'm waiting for it to be answered.

That could work, though actually I was thinking of Slayer (sleigher).

1. Blessed are the first.
   Slow are the second.
   Playful are the third.
   Bold are the fourth.
   Brave are the fifth.

2. After the final fire,
   The winds will blow.
   And these, which are already dead
   Will cover the ones who have
   Yet to die.

3. Men seize it from its home,
   Tear apart its flesh,
   Drink the sweet blood,
   Then cast its skin aside.

Regarding 2
Spoiler: ShowHide
not sure which I am to guess about. I think that puzzle tells about the Ashes. Though, the whole event could be volcano eruption.


3.
Spoiler: ShowHide
An Coconut maybe?

3 I was thinking what CW said or possibly
Spoiler: ShowHide
grapes

#2 was ashes so you got it right.
#3 Has multiple answers but coconut works out, grapes does not.  We cast the skeleton aside but not the skin (most of the time). You can keep up with this one if you want.  It wouldn't open the chest in the game with any of the answers provided.

For #1 I kind of half cheated:
Spoiler: ShowHide
I found a similar riddle where the first, second, third, fourth and fifth letter of each line spelled the word 'brave' but the clues were slightly different, but from that I easily work out that the answer to #1 is 'blade'
