Ăgidius's famous sword has the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie

Who played a golden harp in Bilbo's house Question Smilie
it was Thorin he had a golden harp but i cant remember if it was he who played it?
We will assume Thorin played his golden harp on that occasion. Elessar lossŰhelin gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who betrayed Beren and L˙thien to Thingol Question Smilie
It was the jealous chap...whats his name now... Daeron?
He's the one Etharion, so you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Morwen was the mother of which famous warrior? Question Smilie
Morwen was the mother of Theoden i think
I think it was Turin, if I'm allowed to guess before the previous answer is confirmed or denied.
i think its turin too but....im going to say hurin just in case i was misreading that one book. but its turin.
Yes Eva lilith, it was Turin, so you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Which chapter begins with:
Quote:
In that time were made those things that afterwards were most renowned of all the works of the Elves. Question Smilie
That would be "Of the Silmarils and the Unrest of the Noldor" from Quenta Silmarillion
You got it Lemaly orangeflower and the pretty bauble too. Happy Elf Smilie

In which village was pipe-weed first cultivated Question Smilie
In Longbottom by Tobold Hornblower
Correct Beren, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Which word means "flower" in Elvish Question Smilie
nenya. or buznagtuluk.
Afraid not. Your first is the name of the "Ring of Adament", also known as the "Ring of Water", while your second name sounds like it is Orcish or possibly Dwarvish, but I think it is too gutteral for Dwarvish. Anyway, try again.
floiwer
no, indil
No it is loth or lotŰ

Who or what threatened to squeeze Merry in two Question Smilie
im not sure but it sounds like Treebeard or some orc (Lugb˙rz)??????
Nope.
Old Man Willow? I think that was his name...if not, I mean the Willow Tree that Tom Bombadill saved them from.
yesh.
Yuppers Lemaly orangeflower, Old Man Willow was the one who said he'd squeeze Merry to death if Sam didn't put out the fire, which Sam proceded to do post haste. Meanwhile both Merry and Pippin were trapped in the tree and had to wait until Tom came bouncing along to save them. All this was brought to you without benefit of PJ's celluloid ministrations. Elf Winking Smilie

Name three outlying regions whose representatives Pippin saw arriving to bolster Minas Tirith's strength Question Smilie
He was in the company of Bergil son of Beregond of the Guards when he watched them entering the city.
You may use the books to answer these you know; this isn't a closed book test. Happy Elf Smilie
OK had a look at the book....will give it a try

Dol Amroth - Lossarnach - Morthond

There wre other places named as well - Ringlo Vale, Anfalas, Lamedon, Erthir Anduin, Pinnath Gelin.

Dol Amroth - Pinnath Gelin - Anfalas being the furthest in the map I have.

Certainly, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril Maydmarion. Happy Elf Smilie

Who hungered for and devoured light Question Smilie
Shelbob the spider.
ungoliant ?
sounds abit like Sauron??

the darkness spreading from the East the dark mist and cloud following the orcs wherever they went, he didnt like light that much did he? Orc Smiling Smilie
Golden_Red has it with Ungoliant who sucked the light out of the Two Trees and wanted the Silmarils three, which Melkor/Morgoth stole from Feanor and family. She wanted to eat them because they gave off such lovely light. Thus, Golden_Red gets another Pseudo-Silmaril which can't hold a candle to those Feanor made. Happy Elf Smilie
No new question this time Grondy?
Hmmm, we must have mice, so I'll post it again. Elf Winking Smilie

What was Merry doing when ThÚoden's company found him in Isengard Question Smilie
ahhhhh i meant unglionot!!
he was smoking.
Elrose has the answer and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

In what battle did Glaurung lead the Orcs to victory over the Noldor, breaking the Siege of Angband Question Smilie
That wouldnt be in the Dagor Bragollach, would it?
Yes it would Etharion, it is also known as the Battle of Flame; so you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What career was Gandalf suggesting that Saruman should have taken up, when he said 'Saruman, you missed your path in life.' Question Smilie
"you should have been a jester in the kings court, earning youre bread and youre lashings"
or something
so
jester
Yup, the pretty bauble is yours, Elrose. Happy Elf Smilie

Who sang these words: "When stride is long, and breath is deep, and keen the mountain-air." Question Smilie
That was in the song of the Ents and Entwives, sung by an Ent in the song, and Fangorn (Treebeard) was the one that sang it in the book.
Correct Lemaly orangeflower, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who built Barad Nimras and where Question Smilie
It was builded by Finrod, and it guarded the havens of Brithombar and Eglarest.
You got it Etharion, and so the pretty bauble is yours. Happy Elf Smilie

What did the giant think had happened when Farmer Giles shot him with the blunderbus Question Smilie
was it like in forest gump?

"oww something bit me!"
Close enough, the giant Bumble thought he had been stung by a fierce insect; another Pseudo-Silmaril is yours Elrose. Happy Elf Smilie

Who said, 'Go on! Go on! I will do the stinging!' Question Smilie
Pippin ?
nope, it was Bilbo.
Yup, Lord_aragorn86 knew Bilbo said it to the Dwarves after he unbound them from their spider cocoons and to them to, "Run away! Run away!" Oops, I think that last dire warning was from the story about the killer rabbit and the Holy Grail. Anyway, Lord_aragorn86 gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What was Legolas's father, King Thranduil, wearing on his head when Bilbo first saw him Question Smilie
A crown made of berries and red leaves
That's the right answer Mellon, a pretty bauble to you. Happy Elf Smilie

(No matter what Tolkien wrote, the picture in my mind has always been dark green holly leaves and red berries, which is actually the reverse of the truth.)

How did the Vanyar and Noldor cross from Beleriand into Aman Question Smilie
