U
It now reads:
'_ O / Y O U / N O T / K N O _ / _ E _ T _ / _ H E N / Y O U / _ E E / _ T , O L _ / _ _ N? T H _ _ / _ _ / _ Y / H O U _!'

Correct letters: H, N, T, Y, L, E, O, K, U
Incorrect letters:

It should be fairly easy to guess now... Big Smile Smilie
S,
D
Do you not know death when you see it, old man? This is my hour.
Yes, Undomiel got it right! She gets the next puzzle.
I go first with a guess of an I
She hasn't posted the puzzle yet, Gimli! Rolling Eyes Smilie
I'll guess K.
...
And H

Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
And an A!
_ _ _ _ , _, _ _ _ _ _, _ _ _ _ _, _, _ _ _ _ _ _, _ _ _ _ _, _ _ _ _

Do you need clue for this one?
Well this is a linnod.
One of our rules is to allow the guessing of one letter each before the next puzzle is ever posted. This remains a good rule and allows us to keep the game moving in case the puzzle poster gets to the thread later in the day or the next day, saving time. Moderator Smilie

Undomiel: Please check the guesses between your above correct answer and your puzzle. Then place any correct guesses in it. We were waiting for your rulings, rather than ignoring your puzzle. Elf Winking Smilie

I will guess there is at least one L in the puzzle please.
Sorry Grondy did not read the rules!
_ _ _ _ , _, _ _ _ _ L, _ _ _ _ _, _, _ _ _ _ _ _, _ _ _ _ L, _ _ _ _
Okay Undomiel, now rule on the above pre-guesses: Gimli's I, Eruheran's K, and Sian's A. You may ignore Eruheran's H as we only get one guess per round.

Thanks.

And I will guess an N next.
_ N _ N , I, _ _ _ _ L, _ _ A _ N, _, _ _ _ _ _ N, _ _ _ _ L, A N _ _

And no 'K'
Might i see an S in your puzzle?
and H
Maybe a T or two please?
_ N _ N , I, _ S T _ L, _ _ A I N, _, _ H _ _ I N, _ S T _ L, A N I _
Is there an R in your Elven chant?
or an S?
S has already been guessed, Surivan. Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Maybe a G then.
Maybe a D, please.
Any Ws?
_ N _ N , I, _ S T _ L, _ D A I N, _, _ H _ _ I N, _ S T _ L, A N I _

No R Fornac.

Nor a G Eruheran
Guess on I did not dare to think this would take so long to guess!!

Maybe my lack of promptness might be the reason behind it!
I can't believe an E hasn't already been guessed, so that's my guess.
Good one Fornac. You sound the death knell for my question.

_ N E N , I , E S T E L , E D A I N , _ , _ H E _ I N , E S T E L , A N I _ .

You know you were not right about it being an elvish chant though!
I'll guess there is at least one W.
I know what it is...
But I don't want the next question. Big Smile Smilie
No W Grondy. Are you seriously not getting the quote? (Unbelievable).

Hey Fornac, if you know it why not answer and relieve me of the burden of typing in as each one of you spell out each letter. Wink Smilie
Here's a massive few hints: Big Smile Smilie
It's in Elvish, it was spoken by a woman who died before the events of LotR, and she's related to one of the main characters of the aforementioned books.
Fornac's hint is right!!

Any guesses??
Okay, it is Gilrain's last words to Aragorn, her son:

Onen i-Estel Edain, ú-chebin estel anim.

The translation of which is 'I gave hope to the Dúnedain, I have kept no hope for myself.' This is found in Appendix A at the end of LotR and RotK in Part (v), a part of the tale of Aragorn and Arwen.
Kerrect Grondy!

So the next!
Okay Happy Elf Smilie try:

'_ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _'

(Nine words of 5, 2, 3, 4, 1, 4, 4, 3, and 2 letters in length.)
I will put in an 'A' first
B is my guess.
Yes, Orc Smiling Smilie we have one A for Estel and it now reads:

'_ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / A / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _'

(Nine words of 5, 2, 3, 4, 1, 4, 4, 3, and 2 letters in length.)

Sorry, Orc Sad Smilie there is nary a B in my puzzle.
An ' I ' then (i not l)
I'll guess that there's at least one E.
Yes, Orc Smiling Smilie we have one A and one I for Estel; and Four Es for Fornad.

And it now reads:

'_ E _ E _ / I _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / A / _ _ _ _ / _ _ E _ / _ _ _ / _ E'

Sorry, Orc Sad Smilie there is nary a B in my puzzle.
'N' possibly
Yes, Orc Smiling Smilie we have one A, one I, and three Ns for Estel; and Five Es for Fornad.

And it now reads:

'N E _ E _ / I _ / _ _ _ / _ _ N _ / A / _ _ _ _ / E _ E N / _ _ _ / _ E'

Sorry, Orc Sad Smilie there is nary a B in my puzzle.
Hmmm... any Rs?
