The answers to these two riddles are linked in some way. Some slightly non-general vocab/knowledge may be needed, but I think it's either fair or skirting the edges of fairness.

Good luck!

1) Green walls that hide a sealed room
Of bright silk curtains and sweet perfume.

2) Errors we'll own to, if we're wise...
What Gollum runs for exercise?

Hint:

Spoiler for For the stumped

Well-answered!

If there's any place where Gollum's speech patterns should be "reasonable common knowledge," it's a riddling board.
