very clevar Mungo i must say
Perhaps, but not clever enough to find a question for Grody's answer:

A: Laer cú Beleg
Yep, as Mungo pointed out I was being a smart-alec and got hoisted upon me own pitard. Orc Grinning Smilie

A: Laer cú Beleg

Hint: Sung by a hero who couldn't stay out of trouble, or as the dragon said, this guy lived in interesting times.
Q: What is the name of the song created by Túrin for Beren after Túrin recovers from his madness by drinking the waters of the Eithel Irvin, and before he receives the sword Anglachel from Gwindor?

A: Erebor
Correct question Mungo, except Turin's lament was for Beleg Cúthalion rather than Beren. 'Laer Cú Beleg' is also the 'Song of the Great Bow'. And Mungo's answer remains:

A: Erebor
Where is Orcrist?

A: Ancalagon the Black
Q: Who was the meanest, most ferocious, greatest of the Dragons, who got himself deaded by Earendil in the Great Battle, the War of Wrath.

A: Narquelië
Now, based on canon, do we know Ancalagon was nastier than Glaurung, or was he merely the greatest of the FLYING dragons?
Ancalagon the Black was the greatest of the flying dragons per The Silmarillion. I think compared to him Smaug was a pussy cat. Cat Smilie

I don't know if we can compare the relative strengths between Ancalagon and Glaurung. You may want to start a thread under The Silmarillion or Characters for this.

And the answer remains: A: Narquelië

He was literally the greatest dragon ever. He was so big that he eclipsed the sun. Then again, that'd probably happen too if I'd reach the summit of Mt Everest, so I wonder what all the fuzz is about.

I would've liked to see that aerial scuffle between Eärendil and Ancalagon, though. I bet it beat Top Gun.
