#10 Possibly, this Noldorian Elf was known to frequent Mithlond (the Grey Havens), whether he actually resided there is unknown.
#11 Is it Galdor?
#11 Close, but no cigar! I think you will find Galdor, father of Húrin and Huor was slain at Eithel Sirion; thus, he didn't make it into the Third Age of Middle-earth.
Could that be Gildor Inglorion, by any chance?

Namarie!
#15 Yes, it is Gildor Inglorion, the leader of the Elven party that befriended the Hobbits the night that they first encountered the Black Riders. He was also ignored by PJ's movie.

Your turn bugyfeanor.

Galdor the Tall did not make it into the Third Age, but Galdor the elf was Cirdan the Shipwright's emissary at the Council of Elrond.

Oops, you're right Val, but it didn't change the results, just made my answer for your # 11 have an omission.

Its okay as long as you don't make delaying your posts a hobbit. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Thx for your understanding, Grondy!

#1 Yes, it's alive.
N/p. # 2 Is it and Elf?
#3 Is it Human?
# 2 Yes, it's an Elf.
# 3 So, no, it's not Human.
#4 Is she female?
#4 No.
#5 Is it Maedhros?
#7 Is it Maglor?

Okay Val says #6 should come before #7 so this is actually guess #6. :elfembar: Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

I'm sure Grondy cannot count Wink Smilie

#7 Is it Mablung?
#8 Is it Maeglin?
#9 Was he a member of the Noldor?
As bugyfeanor is incommunicado (he hasn't answered my emails) we will set his puzzle aside and I'll start a new one.

Eye Spy with My Little Eye

AGE: First Age
AREA: Beleriand
Eyespy with my little eye... something that starts with... E
#1 Is/was it a sentient being?
#1 No
#2 Is it a place?
#2 Yes
My deeeeepest appologies! I'm truly sorry; my modem had problems for the past three weeks and thus I could not get here in time to say: Grondy, u're a winner! Maeglin it is!

Forgive me, friends! This was not my doing, nor my will; yet not in my power to do anything about it!

Namarie!
I understand bugyfeanor, welcome back. Happy Elf Smilie

The reason I went ahead was that I have often found while waiting around for something to happen, that I can force it to happen by starting something else. Like lighting a cigarette, or opening a beer, or picking up a new book, when what you want to happen will mean you can't finish whatever you just started. Invariably the first thing kicks in and I have wasted my time, cigarette, beer or whatever, except when I didn't try it, I was still standing on the corner waiting for the ride.

I suppose this is just my taking advantage of Murphy's Law or the corollary thereto:

Thx for your understanding, Grondy! That's exactly what I was hoping u'd do; the last thing I wanted was to hold u guys!

Namarie!
So with #2, Val revealed my Eyespy that begins with E is a place in First Age Beleriand.
Is it west of Sirion?
#3 Yes it lies west of the River Sirion.
Grondy – #4: Is it north of an imaginary horizontal line running east-west through the vale of Tumhalad?

(Sorry if this wasn't meant to be resurrected, but I deemed it sufficiently different from Sevrinn's new game to be reinstated...)
#4 Yes

(Most old threads only go dormant due to lack of participation; they all are open to resurrection unless they have been locked by the Council.)
#5 Is it east of Gondolin?

#6: Does it have a two-word name, of which the first word ends in L?

(And Vee, if it's west of Sirion, it can't be east of Gondolin. Check your map)
I had to check if my answer to #2 was incorrect, but no, it turned out to be correct the first time.

#5 No, it lies west of Gondolin.

#6 Yes
Lets see if we can get this game to fly again. The previous puzzle was:

Eye Spy with My Little Eye

AGE: First Age
AREA: Beleriand
Eyespy with my little eye... something that starts with... E


And the guesses so far are:

# 1 No (It is/wasn't a sentient being)
#2 Yes (It is a place)
#3 Yes (It lies west of the River Siron)
#4 Yes (It lies north of an imaginary horizontal line running east-west through the vale of Tumhalad)
#5 No (Iit lies west of Gondolin, see #3)
#6 Yes (It has a two-word name, of which the first word ends in L)

There are 14 more quesses available, but with a good map, you should be able to discover this place in only one or two more.
Pft, who needs a map.

#7 I'd guess : Eithel Sirion.

Hey what are those #numbers? i'm too lazy to read through 5000 pages, srry.

(Grondy added the serial number)
#7 No (It wasn't Ephel Sirion)

In this game there are only twenty questions to guess the answer. You should number your question serially from the last one.
#8 Eithel Ivrin ???
#9 - Entwood?
#8 No (It wasn't Eithel Ivrin) - I think there are at least two possibles remaining.
#9 No (It wasn't Entwood) - See #6
#10 Ephel Brandir?
#10 Ephel Brandir??

P.S. Oh my, looks like Vir and I posted nearly at the same time.
#10 Yes, Ephel Brandir Your turn Virumor. Happy Elf Smilie
I'd like to pass it over to Floyd, as i don't have a map of Beleriand available at the moment, srry.
Actually, I'm still not clear how to exactly post a new one here, so please Grondmaster, can you do it once again? And do we have to post from Beleriland only?
I have resurrected and combined the rules for this thread from the pre-move thread into the first post of this thread. See if that helps. Happy Elf Smilie
Thank you Grondy. That helped Smile Smilie . Now, I suppose Vir would like to post the next one?
