Hello all.
I'm fairly new to Sleuth and I thought I might share a little hobby of mine with you all. Here's something for that sad moment when the mysteries of the day are all done.

Thousands lay up gold within this house,
but no man made it.
Spears past counting guard this house,
but no man wards it.
What is it?

Lady Grey, you did get the second one right. However, 7:00 is not the correct answer.

I didn't realize we had already had the one, opps.

While exploring the wild highlands of Scotland, Crazy Rob was captured by hostile wood fairies.

Smazze, the powerful chief of the fairies told him he could make one final statement which would determine how he would die.

If the statement he made was false, he would be boiled in water.

If the statement were true, he would be fried in oil.

Crazy Rob found neither of this options too his liking, so he made a statement that got him out of this seemingly impossible situation.

What is the one statement he could make to save himself?

Is it, um... I think that you are hostile? Because, he doesn't think so, but maybe Smazze is so it's both! So, the two, oil and water are mixed, and therefore, their danger is diminished...

Jstkdn's riddles come from the game, Mind Trap. The characters Sid Shady and Shadow gave it away.

Also the answer to the elevator question on the 3rd (?) page was that the man was a midget (little person) so he couldn't reach the button for the 20th floor
