In the form of Quenyan its name is Valarauko.
Keerect Morgoth; you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of the Elven-king's butler Question Smilie
Galion. (Thank you Encyclopedia of Arda.)
Turin has it and the pretty bauble too. Happy Elf Smilie

Who killed and was killed by Anfauglir Question Smilie
Huan.
You got it Turin and also the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What name did the Elves give to Varda Question Smilie
Elbereth.
Wow, I wonder how Turin figured it out; I must have left a clue somewhere. He gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What was 'as good a way of saying "here we are"' as he could think, bar shouting. Question Smilie
Making a fire.
Yep, the Pseudo-Silmaril again goes to Turin.

With what did who use, to remove the Ring from Sauron's hand.
Isildur used the/a shard of Narsil to take the ring from his hand.

Or was it a low bow, a kiss on the hand, and asking really really nice?
'Twas the former, Turin gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was 'Uldor the Accursed' and who slew him Question Smilie
He was a sleazy, third-rate lawyer in New Haven, Connecticut, and I killed him myself.
Youngest son of Ulfang the Black, who betrayed the Sons of FŽanor in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. He was slain in that great battle by Maglor. Happy Elf Smilie
Morgoth has the correct answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who lived at Number 3 Bagshot Row, Hobbiton Question Smilie
The Gaffer? I'm going to feel stupid if it's Bilbo/Frodo.
No, don't feel foolish, Bilbo/Frodo and later Sam and Rosie lived at Bag End. Hamfast (the Gaffer) Gamgee lived at Number 3 Bagshot Row (Sam also lived there before he went questing with the Ring.) Turin gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who is the Odd Man Out: Sam Gamgee, Boromir, Meriadoc Brandybuck, Gollum Question Smilie
Boromir, seeing as he's the only man.
Nope, though that is a different way than I was looking, it isn't what I want. Try again. Happy Elf Smilie

And somewhere around P-T we have a discussion that says hobbits are a subset of Men.
Gollum? Because he's not a member of the fellowship.
That's it Turin another Pseudo-Silmaril for you. Happy Elf Smilie

How did Gollum justify the way he came by the Ring Question Smilie
Twas his birthday present precious.
Aye, Turin gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who or what was "Minardil" Question Smilie
King of Gondor 1600's
Correct Gwindor, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What are the Elvish and Westron names for the Dwarvish word "BundushathŻr" and to what does it denote Question Smilie
I have no friggin clue. If no one gets it by tomorrow, I'll look it up.

By the way Ar-Edain your post has me cracking up every time I scroll down and see it.
It is the dwarvish name for one of the three mountains of moria, the other two being zirakzagil and barazinbar. The elvish name for it is fanuidhol and the westron name is cloudyhead.
There you go Turin, the pretty bauble to you; a little book work pays off again. Happy Elf Smilie

Where was Estel raised Question Smilie
Imladris.
Correct again, another Pseudo-Silmaril to Turin. Happy Elf Smilie

Who played a Golden Harp in Bilbo's house Question Smilie
.....Thorin?
Yes it was Turin, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Why did not the Elves of Nargothrond not slay Beren Question Smilie
Because he was holding up the ring of Barahir. (Noldor are like ravens, they're both mesmerized by shiny things)
Elf With a Big Grin Smilie And their languages are both hard to comprehend: Men, Elves, and Hobbits can't make out Ravenish; while and Men, Dwarves, and Hobbits have a difficult time trying to understand Elvish.

From whom did Beren take the knife Angrist Question Smilie
I think that was Curufin.
Yes it was Turin; you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the price paid for the Fellowship's pony Question Smilie
12 silver pennies

Moderator Smilie Only Grondmaster gets to ask the questions in this thread; so he has moved Gwindor's question to Another Tolkien Trivia Game. Look for it there in my post of 28 April 2009. Happy Elf Smilie
Correct Gwindor, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Which chapter ends with the following words: 'I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam' Question Smilie
Mount Doom
Keerect Turin, another pretty bauble for you. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the Shire's prison in Michel Delving called Question Smilie
the Lockholes
Right again Turin, another Pseudo-Silmaril for you. Happy Elf Smilie

What is the Elvish for "silver" Question Smilie
Tel (Complete guess based upon the beginning of Telperion)

2nd guess: tyeple (Quenya)
That was correct in Quenya, but now try it in the more common Sindarin and think of: a mountain, a river, an absent wife, a craftsman, and a silver-haired Elven Lord; each of these names starts with this word. Teacher Smilie

I should have been more specific and not have used the word "Elvish". Sorry.
Haven't checked, but it must be "Celeb" as in Celebdil, Celebrant, Celebrian, Celebrimbor and Celeborn?
You got it Gwindor, and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Why was the Fellowship unable to pass the Redhorn Gate Question Smilie
Because they thought it was being watched and probably guarded.
No, you best rethink about the what and where of the Redhorn Gate. Happy Elf Smilie

Gimli has the correct answer and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie
