Do I get the jewel to add to my collection? I waited a good 12 hours!!??
Well I suppose Gildor should get it because that is like the same thing right?
The Greenway was the Old North Road that ran from Deadman's Dike (Fornost) thru Bree and on down to Tharbad on the River Gwatho (Greyflood). Whereas, at the time of the War of the Rings, the road from Tharbad to The Ford of Isen was still known as the Old South Road and the road from that ford to Minas Tirith was still known as the Great West Road.
The Great East Road ran from the Grey Havens thru The Shire and Bree and continued on to Rivendell. And actually the Old Forest Road was inline with the Great East Road, but the section over the Misty Mountains was never built, I assume due to the loss of trade caused by Orc Wars and the waning of the Kingdoms of Arnor and Gondor.

Is it a rule that you can only guess once?
Uruk_slayer has the right person and the occasion as well as the Pseudo-Silmaril, for the description is from 'The Council of Elrond' in FotR.
Can you name the three Houses of the Edain
Too late again, for like the umpteenth time.
The Halidin were the second people of Men to enter Beleriand; they were later called the People of Haleth after Lady Haleth, one of their early leaders. Therefore, the People of Haleth and the People of the Haladin are synonymous.
What were three signs appearing at the entrance to Bag End during Bilbo's ownership
"If you can read this, you are too close!"
Well, one is for sure "No admittance except on party business".
The other might be "For sale".
And I have no clue as to a third. I'm going to slap myself in the face when I hear what it actually is, but right now I'm in the dark.
Who or what did Legolas shoot out of the sky from the bank of the Anduin
At what battle was the army of the Witch-king annihilated
The Battle fo the Pelennor Fields.
But Grondy, can you do harder ones now? Because they were really ahrd at the start and now they're really easy. Do I get my seventh pseudo-Silmaril? Because I heard the rules were wait twentyfour hours.
Anyway, the leader at the Battle of Pelennor Field went by his more modern name of the Lord of the Nazgūl, as he was now more powerful than when he was just the Witch-king of Angmar. The battle I am looking for occurred before the Witch-king gathered the Nazgūl in Mordor. So you have to go back to earlier times. Hint: The answer can be found in Appendix B. (If this year was in the Third Age, it would have happened 29 years ago).
So ... this question wasn't all that easy, was it.
Then so utterly was Angmar defeated that not a man nor an orc of that realm remained west of the Mountains.
"Do not pursue him! He will not return to this land. Far off yet is his doom, and not by the hand of man will he fall."
Over what precipice was Eöl cast
