Wow, thank you!
I didn't think it would be important, but there was a prologue to the riddles and it was:
As you grow up you learn that to accomplish everything in life you will need to be immortal. You therefore seek the knowledge of the wise one on the steepest of mountains. Past dangerous mountains and vicious beasts you finally made it! You greet the wise one as you kneel before him. You tell him you seek the knowledge of immortality. The wise one requires you to answer 2 riddles to be granted the knowledge of how to become immortal. He gives you the instructions as follows: I will tell you three riddles, the first riddle must be solved first as it will give you a very important clue to the next riddle, the second riddle is not a clue to the third riddle.
Again, I'm stumped. What color is it up there?
