Crushed beneath trampling feet,

kept in darkness and cold. I am useless if I have suffered not; but having suffered, my temper is sweet and strong to all those who partake. What am I, at start?

Two bodies have I,

Though both joined in one. The more still I stand, The quicker I run...

What force and strength

cannot get through, I, with a gentle touch, can do; And many in these twisted halls would stand, Were I not, as a friend, at hand...

Elvish mithril and Argonian silver, crumble I can.

But first, I improve all created by man. I devour all things, Bird and beast, serfs and kings. Though my pace is even, men curse my speed, Wishing I were lazier in their hour of need. I can creep and crawl, or rush, even fly. I am all thou hast. Tell me, who am I?

I am the architect of this hall,

whose name is forgot in the dust of time. Yet, where there is no dust, where the river would speak, there is my name. Find this place and then return, to tell me my name. Only then shall you pass this door. What is my name?
