The phrase to look at is: Close to boot.  The answer is a 5 letter word.

Sharpen those wits and jab yourselves to find the answer.

I liked how 'steps' fitted the riddle (horse pace, close to boot, travel much yet prisoners), anyways...

- Socks?

Yes.

These three are the last of the ones in my book.  I'll welcome new additions of course but I'm out for now.

1. When people come for me to meet,
They come to me with heavy feet.
The one I hold when I get my chance,
Will turn and spin and start to dance.

2. When it comes in,
From sea to shore,
Twenty paces you'll see,
No less, no more.

3. Like dogs shouting at the moon,
Or armor worn by trees,
Like a sharply spoken command,
Or a tiny vessel upon the seas.

(All the lines in the riddle lead me to this guess and suit it perfectly).

2 and 3 were answered correctly with Fog and Bark.  1 was not.

1. Podiatrist? Or what do they call those doctors who cure gout?

AFAIK these riddles are from medieval fantasy game :)

That should be some really simple thing. Maybe a metaphore.

(no, I can't guess what it is... yet)

"Gallows" is correct.  Well congratulations and thanks for playing.  Hopefully some new riddles will be added to this thread, but for now, I'm out.

Thanks for sharing those Renodox.  They've been fun :)


Let's try not to let this thread die though, guys.
We've had a lot of medieval, Krondorian ones, about horses and gallows etc,  so how about some more modern or even futuristic riddles :)
