The Wainriders were defeated by Eärnil II of Gondor.
Correct Tommie, another pretty bauble coming your way. Happy Elf Smilie

What does Mordor mean in English Question Smilie
BLACK LAND!!! Haha. Those Quenya lessons paid off. More - black. (n)dor - land. HAHA!!! BAUBLE PLEASE!!!
(Now all I have to do is try and remember how many I've got). In the twenties, anyway.
Oh? And I had thought that Sauron was trying to suggest that he required more doors for his Kingdom!
Loni has the correct answer and now another pretty bauble to add to her string. Happy Elf Smilie

Roughly how long did Bilbo's journey to the Lonely Mountain and back take Question Smilie
And NOW I have to sit and wait for 24 hours. *snores*
Love the joke, LA86.
A bit more than a year?
It was less than a year. Around 8 -10 months, I guess!
Tommie's 'A bit more than a year' is the best answer. And is worth the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

They left Bag End on 27 April 2941 for the Lonely Mountain and returned in the middle of an auction, which according to its advertisement, was scheduled to be held on 22 June 2942.

What does the Quenya 'Sauron' mean in English Question Smilie
The one that is not good to taste? (Logic: Sour One)
Is it 'Abhorred one?' Is it? Is it? Is it? I've got loads of Silmarils, and NOW I shall go back in the pages of this thread and find out how many I actually have.
If this one is right, it's 26!!! Yippee!!!
next question, please Smoke Smilie
Yes it is Loni; both 'Abhorred' and 'Abominable' are acceptable answers; so another Pseudo-Silmaril for your collection. Happy Elf Smilie

What did Gimli's people forge for Minas Tirith Question Smilie
I think it was gates to replace the ones that got battered down.
Daisy has the answer and the Psedo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who or what were the Valaraukar Question Smilie
One word answer: Balrog So Angry Smilie
You got it Lord_aragorn86; and a pretty bauble to boot. Happy Elf Smilie

In the War of the Ring, Lothlorien was attacked three times from where Question Smilie
I'm guessing, I don't have my LOTR with me... Misty Mountains?

Love your little 'Council Member' thingy that Grep no doubt gave you.
I can just FEEL my 27th... slipping through my fingers. Is that answer right?
Nope! Orc Sad Smilie

Amarie took some time away from her studies to design the 'Council Member' thingys so people can instantly know who are the Blue Meanies around here. I think she did a fine job given the space limitation. Happy Elf Smilie
Did you hear that, guys? The COuncil Members are Blue Meanies in disguise!!! Get out your Beatles records.... "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds!!! Hey Jude!!! Eight days a week!!! The Yellow Submarine!!!" Hey, the council members are shrivelling and running away. RRR... they must be Genetically Modified Extra-Strengthified Blue MEanies.
I DON'T have 27 silmarils. Oh well, I STILL have quite a dazzling set of jewellery.
A two word answer this time: Dol Guldur
I should've known it was Dol GUldur. BUt... no wait... isn't that MIrkwood that would've been attacked by Dol Guldur? And we ARE talking about Lothlorien, aren't we?
And I thought the MIsty Mountains was th eonly bad place near Lothlorien. It's not Rhun, is it?
Loni, I'm sorry, but I believe you accidently left your mouth running. Elf Winking Smilie Lord_aragorn86 has the right answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Dol Guldur is a tower located in southern Mirkwood; it has often been a secondary center of Sauron's forces in the Third Age.

Which character in Tolkien's Middle-earth started out as a hobbit called 'Trotter' Question Smilie
Aragorn.

And actually Trotter had wooden feet as well.
Virumor has it and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie Wooden feet you say, I thought that was Pinocchio.

Who gave Vilya to Elrond Question Smilie
Gil-Galad?
seems far to obvious though to be corect........or maybe im just paranoid
Rrr, I'm losing my touch. I don't know ANY of these questions. Wel,l I'm going on holiday soon. Maybe I'll somehow get brainy then. Or maybe not. But I STILL have 26 silmarils.
They can't all be too obscure or too hard; nevertheless, Fingolfin gets the pretty bauble for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie

Where did the King of the Mountains swear allegiance to Isildur Question Smilie
sory if in answering too soon, but it has been 24 hours hasnt it?
is it the stone of erech?
Actually Fingolfin, you waited over 25 hours since your last answer, but that is not the required waiting period. You only waited 4 hours of the specified 24 hours after I post the next question which is the required waiting period. Howsomeever, your answer is correct and as you are somewhat new and did know you were supposed to wait, I'll give you the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of Tom Bombadil's pony Question Smilie
Tom Bombadil's pony is named Lumpkin
Well, yes and no.

Fatty Lumpkin
Well Adreia had a portion of the answer and deserves some credit; however, Shaya puma had the pony's full name for the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Why did Merry and Pippin have reason to thank Grishnákh Question Smilie
He wanted to eat Merry and Pippin so the Uruk-hai fought giving them a chance to run.
Apart from that I, Grishnakh took the two hobbitses out near the edge of the forest away from the midst of the orc gaurding party. After Grishnakh was killed from an arrow shot by the Rohirrim horse archer, Merry and Pippin were able to escape to freedom and Treebeard.
Sorry Sauron007, your answer didn't have quite enough meat to it: try again on the next one. Thusly, Lord_aragorn86 gets the pretty-bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What is another name for Noegyth Nibin Question Smilie
That would be the Petty Dwarves.
That's the answer Gildor inglorion, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What did Melkor seek in the Void Question Smilie
The flame imperishable.

Or according to the Bangles, "an eternal flame". X_X
Virumor has the correct answer and another Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What arts did the Dúnedain prize above all others Question Smilie
They prized ship-building and sea-craft as their greatest arts. Though they did not do much of this after the downfall of Numenor.
You got it Handamo and our imaginary Pseudo-Silmaril to boot. (Please read the rule in the first post in this thread if you haven't already done so.) Happy Elf Smilie

How did Boromir vainly try to summon help before he was killed?
He blew upon the horn of Gondor, hoping the others would come quickly to his aid
And also hope to draw the orcs away from the others to him.
Adreia has the answer I was looking for. Lord_aragorn86, I'm not quite sure that was his intent, for at the moment the Orcs were over-running his position; he could see that by himself he could no longer protect the two hobbits; and he didn't know if any of the others were also under attack. So I really think you just forgot to add the Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie so I would know, 'Oh, sarcasm!'. Of course I could be wrong. Anyway Adreia gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What colors (colours) were Treebeard's eyes Question Smilie
Treebeards eyes were brown, sjot with a green light, werent they?
Yes they were Tauro, so you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who led the Rohirrim through Druadan Forest Question Smilie
Ghan leader of the woses. yay first to a question finally Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Robbin got part of the name, but the full name is: Ghan-buri-ghan
