Okay, I'll start another:

AGE: Third Age
AREA: Middle-earth
Eyespy with my little eye... something that starts with... C
#1 Is it a place?
#1 Yes, it is a place.
What kind of a place is it?

#2 Is it the Caradhras?

The questions are supposed to be in a form that can be answered with yes or no, as stated in the second paragraph of the rules. I have edited your above post and adjusted the numbers to suit. Happy Elf Smilie

#2 No, it is not Caradhras.
Oooh!! Sorry, I forgot that. Ok. I'll rephrase it.

#3 Is it a city or say, a place where people (any race) live?
#4 Is it Cerin Amroth?
#5 Is it west of the Misty Mountains?

#3 No, it is not a place where people (any race) live.

#4 No, it is not Cerin Amroth.

#5 No, it is not west of the Misty Mountains.
#6 is it Cair Andros?
#6 No, it is not Cair Andros.
#7 Is it a place that was built? As opposed to a natural landmark.

#7 Well no, it is a is natural landmark.; however, there is an small functional structure on it. (Tough question to answer: the name belongs to the landmark.)
I'm out of questions!!!
#8 Is it Carrock, the island in the River Anduin?
#8 No, it is not the Carrock, the island in the River Anduin.

Suggestion: It helps to zero in on the spot. Use a few more questions to isolate it geographically , like is it south of some other place.
Yes Grondy, thanks for the hint. I was thinking up questions for that!!!

Is it west of the Misty Mountains or East?

(Sorry Floyd, Grondy removed the question number from this post for two reasons: It can't be answered with a yes or no, and more importantly, Elf Winking Smilie See Question #5.)
#9 Is it located in a mountain range?

(Grondy only changed the question number to suit the above post)
#9 Yes, it is located in a mountain range.
#10 - Just popped inside to look at my map. Is it Carn Dum?
#11 Is it a dangerous place?

(Grondy merely addjusted the question number upwards.)
Oi! Sorry about that! Won't happen again :$
#10 No, it isn't Carn Dum?

#11 No, it isn't anymore dangerous than any similar place; though one must still be careful.

( Floyd_n_milan, no problem. Keep on trying, you'll soon get the hang of it.) Happy Elf Smilie
#12 Is it Calenhad, Sixth of the Beacons of Gondor?
Aye Heorogar, Calenhad it is. Happy Elf Smilie Your turn unless you want to pass it on.
My turn, ..., no passing-on Grond, a warrior-thane has to fulfill his oaths! Animated Wink Smilie

#1 Is it the name of a place?
#1 Difficult question to answer. In narrow terms: no ; in broad terms: yes Wary Smilie

#2 Is it west of the Misty Mountains?

#2 Yes it is West of the Misty mountains

Former answers:

#1 Difficult question to answer. In narrow terms: no, it is not a place ; in broad terms: yes, it is.

#3 - Is it Rhudaur?
#4 Does it lie south of a line extending through Tharbad and Caras Galadon?
Bingo, Loni! Pary Smilie Rhudaur it is!

Your turn!
YAY!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYA!!!! Right, off to consult my map... NO, I"LL DO A PERSON!!!!!

I spy, with my little eye, someone beginning with V!!!!!
Grondy tells me to be more specific. He/she lived in the First Age, according to my quick reference. He/she was born in Middle-earth.
#1 Is it human?

#2 I don't know, but are we allowed to ask if it is male? Question Smilie



Yes you are allowed to ask that.

#3 Is it an elf?

#1 I never really like the use of 'human,' it makes elves and hobbits and all that seem like aliens. No, they are not a Man.
#2 - Yes, he is male.
#3 - an elf, to be sure, he is.

#4 Had he been to sea?
#4 - He sure had, Grondy. Methinks you know who it is, considering what I have recently seen you post on some threads.
Animated Wink Smilie #5 Did he have knowledge of a secret door?
#6 Is it Voronwë of Gondolin, the Elf who sought a passage to Aman?

#5 - Yep, Gromdy, I noticed you posted on a thread you were reading that story in UT for the first time. He did.
#6 - The cat' outta the bag!!!! The beans are all over the floor!!!!!! You turn, Heorogar.

That's true, but I have also read about Tuor and Voronwë in the Silmarillion at least three times.

Heorogar's turn to start the next eye spy game. Happy Elf Smilie
Ok, I admit, with the help of Grond's magnificent questions it wasn't that difficult anymore. Next one is yours Grond!
And ... er, thx for the cat and beans Loni Animated Wink Smilie
