I'm always bright yet ever dark. I am vividly visible and quite clearly there, but your reaching hand will touch nothing but air. I am a shield that protects you from the factors that bring death, yet through me passes that which maintains life.

I was stuck for a bit. I thought of a plant, since it uses photosynthesis to make oxygen (or something), thereby ensuring life. But the air part didn't make sense with it. The shield part was where it clicked. Now I just need to make a riddle.

Horses are quiet large with long necks so, unless the chain is connected to its nose, it can easily reach it.

The horse isn't at the end of its chain - it can still get closer to the apple without reaching the end of its tether. If it is at the end of its chain, it's somewhere else along the radius. Example:

Horse.....| apple
The horse is on the the other side of the post from the apple in this example.

Say you have many pairs of socks that all look the same - do you really notice when one of them is gone from your drawer? You don't miss it if there isn't an odd one out to clue you in - unless you have OCD and track your laundry like a customs official.

A car and a train are approaching a railroad crossing. The train is 1500 meters away and 800 meters in length, while the car is 2000 meters away. To make this easy for you, both vehicles are moving at 53.8 meters per second with an acceleration of 0.6 meters per second squared. Both pass through the crossing (without changing velocity or acceleration) without making contact in a collision. Please explain.

Sums of sixes and nines can give you every multiple of three except for three (6=6, 9=9, 6+6=12, 6+9=15, 6+6+6=18...). In addition (literally... ha ha ha), twenty can give numbers that are not multiples of three, like twenty-six, which is one less than a multiple of three. After three twenties have been used (numbers abve sixty), substituting twenties and twenty-ones can give multiples of three, one more than multiples of three and two more than multiples of three. Therefor, the highest number is less than sixty, and forty-three is the highest because, even though it is the sum of two twenties and a multiple of three, the multiple of three is not available through any combinations of sixes and nines.

Which will pass first a 10 foot wall going 1 mph or 2 mph? Right, the one going 2. How much less time will it take? Half. Which means to maintain the same relation of time of passing from one wall to the other while making them move at the same speed, the second wall would have to be 5 feet instead of ten. This is the equivalent length in relation the distance needed to pass.
Yes, I made this up, and no, I have no way to prove it at the moment but it seems to make sense.

Riddle-

A robot has 8 buttons: 4 control movement, 1 for 'On' and 'Off', 1 for self destruct, and 1 unknown.
The 'forward' and 'right' directional buttons are in the middle of the other controls. 'Left' is adjacent to the unknown. The buttons with the same starting letter are in positions above 'forward' but are not adjacent to each other.

If the unknown separates 'down' from the other directional buttons, than what is the configuration of the buttons?

There are no clues that refer to them, except that, as a pair, they are in the middle of the others, and that two controls are above forward... which they are, regardless of whether forward is in the third or fourth position. Does your solution have them next to each other?

I said the controls with the same starting letter were above forward. In normal dialog people refer to the highest known object when saying something else is higher. Since no other clues are provided, you must go on this.

- A malicious spirit appeared and killed her

Let me expand on my original comment. The car is a convertible, therefore, the stranger can easily kill the woman without damaging the car.

Technically, both stick to each other. If you hold an iron bar near a magnet, the magnet and iron bar are pulled toward each other with equal force. If you hold a magnet near an iron bar, they are still pulled toward each other with equal force.

You can find another iron object outside of the room.

If you can damage one, even by flaking some tiny parts off, you can check to see if it's a magnet by seeing whether or not the parts are attracted or repulsed by each other.

You can try both bars out as compass needles. The one that swings to point north when floated is the magnet.

I'm thinking Lord Paul, but that's probably wrong.
From the sound of it, the person who wrote the note wasn't familiar with the traitor as they didn't know whether or not the traitor (whom the person knew was a noble) was a lord. The problem is that the possibility exists that Mythros had told the anonymous person that there was a traitor, but he had forgotten to tell the person that the traitor was a lord. This could hint that either the person writing the note either was trying to figure it out, or that he had already figured it out but was checking his facts.

The anonymous signature is a tough bit though. Is he doing this because he doesn't want the traitor to see the note and kill him, because he's really the traitor (or involved in the scheme) and doesn't want Mythros to know who he is, or because giving this information would identify the killer easily and Thomas doesn't want us to have this knowledge...

Alternately, if Mythros didn't tell anyone about his suspicions, then the note-writer is involved in something. Either the king talks to himself and the note-writer heard that, or the note-writer knows because he's the traitor. The problem with that, though, is that Gilbert's guess was wrong.

New riddle:
King Mythros had three courtiers, named Lord Paul, Lord Mark, and Lord Matthew. He suspected one of them of being a traitor, but he couldn't tell which one it could be. One day, he received an anonymous note, which read: "The noble plotting to kill you is a lord?"

Which courtier was the traitor? (The note is EDITED for clarity.)

Which courtier is the traitor? But it says a noble is going to try to ki11 him, not a courtier. (I have no idea what im talking about)

I'm going to say Matthew is the traitor since:

And if there's no way, that would mean its Mark! People have guessed Paul and Matthew but Mark is in the shadows so he is guilty. He wrote the letter to trick Mythros into thinking to was one of the other two!

Interesting angle. This would imply that Mytrhos is a god. If he is a god, the "noble" trying to kill him could be satan. We could also assume that Paul, Matthew, and Mark are demons...

Okay, here's one:
You are surrounded by a 100 foot wide and 100 foot deep moat. You have a 40 foot tall ladder, matches, a gallon of water, and as much rope as you need.

How can you get across the moat?

Burn the ladder and the rope, then throw the water down the moat. Wait, that gains you nothing. Oh.

If you have as much rope as you need, maybe you could swing it across the moat and just climb over... but that isn't realistic.

Sorry, I guess my email to Gilbert with the answer never came through. The answer is that Lord Mark was plotting against the king. The letter said "lord?" or, spelled out, "lord question mark." Thus, the letter was referring to Lord Mark as the traitor. It was great seeing all the ingenious guesses for this riddle!

Tie all the rope together to make some sort of bridge. Throw it across with the ladder at the end to act as a weight to keep it down on the other end. Walk across.

Light the ladder on fire, when you can break it in half, do so. Then repeat for four pieces. Put out the fire with the water. Tie the limitless rope to the ladder and throw the two pieces off to the other side. Anchor the other to pieces to the ground on your side. Now walk across.

If it's a mote, then there's probably a castle. If there's a castle, then their must be a drawbridge. I'd walk across that drawbridge.

Punctuation!
There should be a question mark after the first sentence.
Or... If "Who" is the name of the victims and "What" is indeed the criminal then a period is needed after the second sentence.
