Oh, ooh, I think I've got it... is it:

Adunakhor, Lord of the West

(don't know where all the accents and thingies go on his name)
That's it. You got it Tinúviel; so it looks like it is your turn.
I'd better let someone else take it from here as I don't have internet access over weekends.

Would you do the honours Caudi?
Caudimordax just made this last one so I'll be back in a few minutes and edit this post to add a new puzzle for you all to guess. Happy Elf Smilie

Okay, so try:

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

(five words of 9, 3, 6, 3, and 8 letters each, if I counted correctly.)
Caudi, Caudi...I like that. Most people just abbreviate it to Caud, but I like Caudi. I will guess an "i" for the one Tinúviel added. Thanks Tinúviel for the new nick name.

One i please
May I have an Aplease ?
It's a pleasure Caudi, glad you like it, sounds more..? endearing with an i.

I'd like an S please.
Yes, we have two Is for Claudi; three As for Mello; and two Ss for Tinú. Orc Smiling Smilie

So now it reads:

_ I _ I _ _ _ A _ / _ A S / S _ _ _ _ _ / A _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Sorry, still no wrong guesses. Orc Sad Smilie
I guess I will guess an L, because Grondy decided to change me to Claudi though I don't think I like the addition of the L. I think Claudi resembles to closely to Claudia, which is quite female, while I am not.

Anyways an L please.
May I have a N please ?
can i have a T, Grondy???
Yes, we have two Is and two Ls for Caudi; three As and four Ns for Mello; two Ss for Tinú; and two Ts for Loss. Orc Smiling Smilie

So now it reads:

_ I _ I L _ _ A _ / _ A S / S T _ _ N _ / A N _ / _ N _ _ N T L _

Sorry, still no wrong guesses. Orc Sad Smilie

Oops, sorry about the extra L Caudi. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
No problem, you gave me the next correct letter so I don't mind. But now I am stuck, please don't tell me that there aren't any H's
ill go for an E, please
Yes, we have one H, two Is, and two Ls for Caudi; three As and four Ns for Mello; two Ss for Tinú; and two Es and two Ts for Loss. Orc Smiling Smilie

So now it reads:

_ I _ I L _ H A _ / _ A S / S T _ _ N _ / A N _ / _ N _ E N T L E

Sorry, still no wrong guesses. Orc Sad Smilie
That 2nd to last word looks like "anD". So I'll go with a D, please.
i should think that an R should go in there somewhere, so an R kind sir
I'd like a G please.
Yes, we have two Ds, one H, two Is, and two Ls for Caudi; three As and four Ns for Mello; three Gs and two Ss for Tinú; and two Es, one R, and two Ts for Loss. Orc Smiling Smilie

So now it reads:

G I _ I L _ H A D / _ A S / S T R _ N G / A N D / _ N G E N T L E
Sorry, still no wrong guesses. Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Ok, I've got the rest of the words, but I'm totally stumped with the first one??

Yup, your turn Loss, and well done. Happy Elf Smilie

no M's for Grondy

Can I have a A Loss?
And I really think you ought to reconsider my request for an M, for you can't spell "Company" with out an M. Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie

Neverthe less I'll now guess that there are a couple of Gs, please.

Come on guys, its sooooooooooo simple now, and i want to know where its from as well Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
I believe an i will do it.

It is the name of a chapter in RotK. Actually quick question when reading that chapter it doesn't clarify whether the "Grey Company" was Aragorn and his company, or the company of the undead. At some points it seems like it is the one; at others, it seems like it is the other. Which is it?...Or was Tolkien purposefully being vague to mean which ever one you like. Thoughts to ponder.

Because I have new thinking and reading material apparently, I will decline the creation of the next puzzle. First come, first serve.
yay im first but ill let the next person take it as i have just done the previous

but yes along with the i it is:

The Passing Of The Grey Company
