Loni was right that after the scouring of the Shire in November S.R. 1419 (TA 3019), Frodo did serve as Acting Mayor (actually as Will's Deputy) until Will Whitfoot recovered from being the first of many who had been imprisoned in the Lockholes by Lotho and his Men. Frodo resigned and Will resumed the office on Mid Year's Day S.R. 1420 (TA 3020). In S.R. 1427 Will Whitfoot resigned and Samwise was elected Mayor of the Shire for the first of seven times. He resigned the office in S.R. 1476.
All this can be found in Appendix B to LotR as well as RotK, Book VI, Chapters 8 and 9.
Anyway, Vee had the right answer and gets the pretty bauble.
Who built Durthang and why
*prepares the forge for the coming pseudo-Silmaril*
However, if Frodo_baggins can point me to the source of his answer, he may have one also. I only found that one Tarondor was King of Gondor in TA 1640 and Mordor was left unguarded during his reign, which means he is way too late to have built those castles.
What time of day was it when Bilbo set out to join Thorin's Company
Very puffed he was, when he got to Bywater just on the stroke of eleven, and found he had come without a pocket-handkerchief! - from The Hobbit, Chapter 2 entitled, "Roast Mutton"
Therefore, Moriannon gets the pretty bauble.
In the beginning, Sauron was one of the Maiar of which Vala
Given a year and a hundred of his kind, what could Gimli have made of Helm's Deep
A palace, nice place to be, that would make Moria a bleak memory.
'Ever my heart rises as we draw near the mountains. There is good rock here. This country has tough bones. I felt them in my feet as we came up the dike. Give me a year and a hundred of my kin and I would make this a place that armies would break upon like water.'
Where did the Phile of Galadriel become 'A light when all other lights go out'
What was the chief city of Lórien
Welcome to Caras Galdhon!' he said. 'Here is the city of the Galadhrim where dwell the Lord Celeborn and Galadriel the Lady of Lorien.
So I'm guessing it's Caras Galaldhon! Fifteenth Silmaril on the way!!!!!! WHEEEEE!!!!!! And you spelt phial wrong. BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER CAUSE I NOW HAVE FOURTEEN SILMARILS AND I'LL SOON HAVE FIFTEEN!!!!!!!
(Phial vs. Phile: I are an ingenear and sometimes I forget to use the spellchecker)
On what European languages were Quenya and Sindarin respectively based
Sindarin : Welsh.
Who threw his Silmaril into the sea and why did he do it
Hi did this, out of despair.
He and his brother, Meadhros had got them back, but as not beeing their right owners any more, they burned in their hands and out of pain Maglor throuw his on into the sea.
Name the Peredhil.
I mean, Elrond and Elros were the official Half-Elves, yet this goes back to Dior, son of Luthien and Beren; Earendil, son of Idril and Tuor; Elwing, Eluchil and Elured, children of Dior (Half-Elven himself) and Nimloth; Arwen, Elladan and Elrohir, children of Elrond (Half-Elven himself) and Celebrian; I'm not so sure about Eldarion and the daughters of Aragorn and Arwen...
That's about it!
If I remember my grammar lessons correctly: the article "the" may designate either a specific singular object or a pluricity of objects, while the article "a" designates a singular object. Still it has been awhile and maybe the rules have changed. Is "pluricity" a real word or did I make it up?
Who (from a list of Tolkien's literary characters) wrote the poem 'The Stone Troll'
'Where did you come by that, Sam?' asked Pippin. 'I've never heard those words before.'
Sam muttered something inaudible. 'Its out of his own head, of course,' said Frodo. 'I am learning a lot about Sam Gamgee on this journey. First he was a conspirator, now he's a jester. He'll end up by becoming a wizard—or a warrior!'
'I hope not,' said Sam. 'I don't want to be neither!' - from about half way into 'Flight to the Ford,' Chapter 12, Book I, FotR.
Isengard was destroyed by whom
Stoney, the tower itself, Orthanc, was not destroyed, you are right.
But I think that Grondy's use of Isengard refers to the surrounding walls and outlying compound that Saruman had set up in place of the natural beauty and trees, which is what irked the Ents in the first place. Of course, there is also the strong possibility that I have misinterpreted his meaning, in which case, oh well! Anyway, someone else already answered correctly, so I don't know what business I have putting my two cents' worth!
**She knocks herself out for the common good**
Though our Pseudo-Silmarils sublimate, I believe Loni's necklace must be quite dazzling in its brightness.
What did Mlkor seek in the Void
Name two rivers that flow through Fangorn
Meanwhile: What was the name of the great feast hall in the capital of Rohan
Oh, I just found out, that it's in English Limlight, the Translation of Wolfgang Krege Limklar, Silberlauf,
Anyway Idril gets the Pseudo-Silmaril for Entwash and Limlight in whaterver language is used.
And Meduseld is the Rohirrim feast hall so Etharion also get a pretty-bauble.
What office had Robin Smallburrow been appointed to under the Chief
Yay! my twelfth on the way!
