If no one replies before I get home, then the SIlmaril is mine! For I will just read SMith of Wootton Major in half an hour. AAAA!!!! The school bell is ringing!
i have never heard of that book before
Yup, poor old fat and lazy Nokes. So I suggest we never sneer at anyone from Faery. Amarië gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of Éomer's weapon of choice Question Smilie
I should've known it was NOkes. Being all fat, and getting all skinny and all. 'Twas Alf's doing, 'twas.

i have never heard of that book before

Then you should look really carefully on those lists of Tolkien's works in all the books. It's there. It's a lovely little story, a sort of kiddy adult story. I loved it.
Virumor has the correct answer and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

In TA 2063, where was Gandalf sent, and what was he unable to discover Question Smilie
Gandalf was sent to Dol Guldur. Sauron went to the east so Gandalf failed to discover that Sauron was back again.
Yes, Gildor inglorion gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What underground halls were known as the Thousand Caves Question Smilie
You got it Virumor, and a Pseudo-Silmaril too. Happy Elf Smilie

What did Tolkien initially study at Oxford Question Smilie
BEAT ME TO IT!!!! I KNEW IT WAS ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE!!!!!!! But that's okiay, because i have 18 pseudo-silmarils.
No, the keyword is initially.
he majored in philology
I actually was looking for the "Classics" and I don't think "English Language and Literature" fits that; if I'm wrong let me know.


Who felt Sauron searching for him on the summit of Amon Hen Question Smilie

Heh, that was an easy one Grondy!!
Stonehelm got it and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Yes, I know it was easy, but I try to diversify the hardness of the questions.

In the High-elven tongue, what were the Balrogs known as Question Smilie
umm...the Valarauka?
Valaraukar? meaning Demons of might or something
Yup, Floyd_n_milan gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who had a butler named Galion Question Smilie
i REMEMBER THIS FROM THE HOBBIT!!!! TWAS THRANDUIL!!!!!!! And I do think it's nineteen silmarils now. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
That's the guy, Loni has another Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who killed Gorbag Question Smilie
Shagrat? I'm not sure on this one. I get confused between those two!!
ya it's shagrat... that part of the story is hilarious
Floyd_n_milan wins another pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Which Vala seldom clothed him/herself in a body Question Smilie
Yaaay!! I know the answer to this one too!! Because I'm reading the Silm right now. Oh well. I'll let someone else win this time Smile Smilie
Alright, I'm scanning 'Of the Valar' in Silm. Doesn't look like Manwe. Varda? Nah. DARN!!!! It IS Ulmo!!!!!! STINKYSTINKYSTINKY!!!!!! YOU STOLE MY SILMARIL!!!!!
Please don't yell so much Loni.

Yes it was Ulmo, Túrin turambar, so you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Why did Sam particularly want to go to Rivendell Question Smilie
To see Elfies.
Wanted to see Elfies what? And I who thought he wanted to see the elves... Juggling Smilie
Yes, like i said, Elfies.
I'll accept Virumor's answer, so he may have the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

At what battle did the Ring betray Isildur Question Smilie
err... Gladden Fields? Don't laugh if I said it wrong!!

Correct, Floyd_n_milan gets the Pseudo-Solmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was an éored Question Smilie
A rohirric army. Theodens men.
Encyclopedia of Arda says "An éored was the main military division of the Rohirrim". I just remembered it from the movie. I wondered if it was like a hird and I guess it was. Smile Smilie
Darnit, Amarie! you're too quick!
Sorry. Wink Smilie
Please don't yell so much Loni.

*whispers* s-o-r-r-y......
Amarië has the answer and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What would probably have prevented Glaurung from destroying Nargothrond Question Smilie

(Sorry I wasn't here yesterday, my modem has been acting up.) Elf Rolling Eyes Smilie
If Túrin passed by Nargothrond, it may have stayed hidden and avoided the sack... Alas Turambar brought his terrible doom with him to Nargothrond, and convinced Orodreth and his council to build a mighty bridge and to change their war tactics.
But this occurred and was ignored even after the bridge was built.
The bridge made it easier for the army of Glaurung to come to Nargothrond. If it had been destroyed, the enemy might have been delayed. I think someone had proposed to destroy the bridge some time before the war, but Turin had not approved of it.
Floyd_n_milan had the answer that I was looking for, and now has the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Can you find the Odd Man Out: Goldilocks Gamgee, Galadriel, Dior, Isildur, Faramir Question Smilie
Goldilocks Gamgee : her name consists of two words.


Seriously : Dior, Isildur, Faramir and Galadriel are all in a way, related to each other.

Galadriel is related to Dior, because Dior's wife is Nimloth, who was Celeborn's niece, with Celeborn being Galadriel's husband.

Dior is the grandfather of Elros, who is the first King of Numenor, hence related to Isildur who is of the line of Kings via the lords of Andunië. Faramir is related to Isildur, but indirectly via Mardil, son of Voronwë.

Goldilocks Gamgee doesn't take part in any of these relations, so she is the odd (wo)man out.
Virumor can have a Pseudo-Silmaril for his answer, but that's not the one I was looking for.
Umm, Galadriel is the only "Ring-bearer" and she's the only one who's seen Valinor. Also, she's the only one of them all, who doesn't have to face death.
Goldilocks is the only character without some elven in her blood.

can i have half a simaril for my previous answer, because it was on the right track Smile Smilie
