Well, you may or may not know this, but I called them "gonnhirrim" once or twice. Does THAT count? I call them that as an insult, but I suppose you could pretend that it just refers to their lifestyle in a nonderogitory manner.
Well, you couldn't call them "Gonnhirrim" as you are no elf, but I could call them Masters of Stone as I am an elf Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Loss gets the Pseudo-Silmaril for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie The Elves were the First Age Sindar or the Grey Elves.

What is the name of the large body of water in Southern Mordor Question Smilie
I believe it's called Nurn, where Sauron kept most of his slaves, sowing and harvesting crops to feed his hordes.
I belive that Nurn is the name of the largest river that feeds the water mass, but it itself is called the sea of Nurnen. No?
Etharion has the correct answer for the body of water and now the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie Nurn is also the land mass around the Sea of Nurnen, or Lake Nurnen as it is really too small to be classified as a sea to my way of thinking. I think Tolkien called it by both names and the four rivers that fed it were unnamed on his maps.

What was the name of Frodo's father Question Smilie
Drogo BagginsHappy Elf Smilie
Correct Mellon, another Pseudo-Silmaril to you. Happy Elf Smilie

Who, what, or where was Angrist Question Smilie
A sword?
a knife, beren used it to cut the silmaril from mogroth's crown
Arrggh...yer right mate! Its was a dagger..not a sword..
Gud gets the pretty bauble for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie

In 2063 TA, where was Gandalf sent, and what was he unable to discover Question Smilie
Gandalf went to Dol Guldur in the South of Mirkwood to investigate what the growing shadow was, but he couldn't find anything as "the shadow" aka Sauron, sneaked out of the back door leaving Gandalf stumped with a pipe in his mouth wearing a deerstalker hat wondering where Watson had got to Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Correct Loss; and may the spirit of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle smile on you and your new Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What underground halls were known as the Thousand Caves Question Smilie
I should probably know that one pretty well; that's where I grew up and learned to fight orcs. Memories of that place are why I also don't think too kindly of dwarves (sorry Grond).
Menegroth , where Beren began his search for the Silmaril ?
Yes Menegroth is the correct answer Mellon, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What military skill did Tolkien specialise in during the Great War (WW I) Question Smilie
all I know is that he was in the trenches
I think that he was in the Gunner core, something Gunners.....
I have read somewhere that he specialised on different kind of signalising..But i don't know what kind though.Maybe MORSE ? ( I know I answer before I should have but I couldn't resist )
The Gunners Corp would be the Artillary, but that isn't the answer, as Mellon says, before her turn, it was in Signaling.

Who was cast (thrown) over the CaragdŻr in Gondoli, at Turgon's command Question Smilie
Yep, Ethy gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What gemstone did Bilbo pocket inside Erebor Question Smilie
The Arkenstone
The Koh-i-noor.
Mellon has it and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the first great stronghold of Melkor Question Smilie
Correct Sian, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who had a butler named Galion Question Smilie
Hint: He drank too much.
Well...as the tree said to the lumberjack, "Im stumped!".
The elf king of Mirkwood at the time of the Hobbit and LOTR. Forgot how to spell his name.
Thranduil was his name I believe
Yup, AmariŽ got him and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie Mellon gets honorable mention for knowing his name. He was Legolas's old man, pater as it were.

Who killed Bolg Question Smilie
Beron ?
If by Beron you meant to type Beorn, Elf Winking Smilie then yes that is the correct answer. So another pretty bauble coming your way Mellon. Happy Elf Smilie

Which Vala seldom clothed himself in a body Question Smilie
My educated guess is Ulmo.
Keerct Aldaradan, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

How did Gandalf come to select Sam to accompany Frodo to Rivendell Question Smilie
Umm..its the whole buisness with Sam eavesdroping on the conversation of Gandalf and Frodo..so when Gandalf found out what Sam was doing, he decided that he should accompany Frodo to Rivendell to reedem himself. Right?
Sam was lurking about the bushes at Frodo's house, being an ole sneak, then Gandalf caught him, thought about turning him into something nasty, then thought nah I'll let him go to certain death instead Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie

Edit: Beaten by eight minutes......... Too busy making sure I had the right answer, I found it then couldn't resist reading a few more pages of Three Is Company Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Etharion has it and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Why did Bilbo take so little hurt from the ring Question Smilie
Because he embraced the Ring with such deep compassion
Yes, because he showed pity and mercy to Gollum, rather than murdering him after he found the ring. Bilbo never used the Ring to harm anyone. Mellon gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was an ťored Question Smilie

Boy, I'm glad as soon as I make this post I'm done with the Forum today. A few minutes ago when I had just about finished this post, I happened to look down and saw the power light on my back-up power supply/surge protector was on. So I reached down and turned it off. Then I got to wait five minutes for the computer to reboot including the infamous yellow on blue "Don't do that again!" screen, to refind Planet-Tolkien.com and this thread, and then to retype the above question. The moral of this story: Be sure brain is engaged before putting hand (or tongue) in motion.
Umm..its a cavalary unit in Rohan, made out of Rohirim riders? Something like aa....squadron..or unit..only for cavalary.
Correct Etharion, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie I don't believe an ťored had a fixed number of riders, because when …omer met the three hunters, his ťored comprised 104 horesemen, but as I recall there were only three ťoreds of the Rohirrim at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields which would have each numbered about two thousand.

On how many levels was Minas Tirith built Question Smilie
Common lads...this is an easy one..
They didn't know it or didn't care enough to do their best, so you may as well give us the answer Ethy. Happy Elf Smilie
Ok.. Orc Sad Smilie There are 7 of them. This is happening more and more..that is, less and less people are on the threads..
Etharion has the correct answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Which is the 'Odd Man Out': Narsil, Gurthang, Glamdring, or Grond, Orcrist Question Smilie
Grond is not a sword, although all are weapons?
Correct Sian, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie
