Riddle 5

Ok. Let's hope you're thinking well this time!
 
Seven ages we are born, captured for live and die.
Seven ages I will stay and watch the world through human eye.
Seven deaths I will endure, mortal and immortal behold.
Seven deaths of wasp and serpent; chance to decay, turn to mould.
 
 
I wish you great luck on this one! Although, it will make much more sense if you knew the answer, which I will not so readily inform you of.

  2. Would it be possible to get another clue? Because I have no idea whatsoever what the answer might be. :D If you don't give me any clues I can't guarantee that I will work it out before a year is past. :)

  3. One word, one name;
    Shadowmancer

    I'm glad this one is hard! The one word is the biggest hint by the way as it is part of the answer. I knew that that part would be nigh impossible with-out a hint or having read the book.

    1. Hmmm, still don't know....This is quite difficult...Are you planning on ever telling us the answer? Because if you don't I might die of overworked brain. :D

  4. Well, I don't particularly want you to die so.. I'll give another hint! Think 'possession' as in to be possessed.

  5. Okay...is the answer a Shadowmancer? I'm not entirely sure what they even are so that doesn't really help.

    The actual riddlesounds quite interesting of itself really...but that doesn't get me any closer to the answer sadly. I just reread the riddle and go: "Er...nope, can't see anything in that...."

    1. No... not quite. You are missing one word beginning with 's', aside from Shadowmancer.

    2. Erm...'Sneaky Shadowmancer'? :D Okay, maybe not...
      Is it a Shadowmancer's Soul? (That was the most likely thing I could think of...)

    3. Oh! Or Seven Shadowmancers...

    4. Here is the give-away hint. The other word begins in 'sp' and ends in 'ts'. If you don't work it out now...

    5. Shadowmancer spirits? Or Spirits of Shadowmancers...which is exactly the same thing just worded slightly differently...

    6. Yes! Shadowmancer spirits! Actually it is the 7 nonhuman spirits of a Shadowmancer, but that is too hard to guess. I'll make my riddles a bit more realistic this time.
