(Yes, I know I repeat, but as I have been doing this for nigh on four years and don't have an easily searchable list; and being only a Dwarf, rather than an Elf or an Ent with their long term memories, what do you expect. I do try not to repeat them too often, but sometimes it just happens.)
Who said, 'If any mortals have claim to the Ring, it is the men of Númenor, and not Halflings.'

So, Orc plumber gets the Pseudo-Silmaril for the posted answer. However, he/she should be aware that these pretty baubles are very unstable and sublimate before their physical substance can get to their winner; except in the case of Loni who now says she has her twenty, strung on a string as a bright shiny necklace.

What this rule is trying to do is to also allow those people in Great Britain and on the Continent to have at a crack at some of them without my having to start posting them in my early morning hours before the rest of the Americas get online. My living eight time zones west of them does make it difficult., while if I lived there, the Ameicas would get short shrift.

The questions come out of Tolkien's books, not from my memory. I will also draw on questions from Tolkien's stories and poems, but won't use ones from the H.O.M.E. series. Though I have been know to resort to a quiz book now and then, I then try to double-check those answers so I can prove their legitimacy.
Also finding the source for a known answer provides me with a challenge, and my being in most of the books daily and having a handle on what's in the indices and appendices helps with this. Once in a while I have even had to resort to my downloaded Encyclopedia of Arda, and when it's not in there I might even google; though I can usually find it in the books. if I just put my mind to it. I still don't own Frost's dictionary.
