Correct Sian, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

How many silver pennies were required to purchase Bill Question Smilie
Thirty-one?
No, many fewer.
12?
4 ?
Since Grondy is is offline I looked up the answer and Gwindor is correct. 12 silver pennies purchased Bill the pony, paid by Butterbur.

New question: who or what is the Hirilorn?
A beech tree outside Menegroth, so named because Luthien was imprisoned there for a short while.
Yes! Gwindor, you get Grondy's Pretty Bauble Smile Smilie


Next question: who is Anfauglir?
Tricky this, I first thought you meant Anfauglith.
Anyway, its Carcharoth's other name meaning 'Jaws of thirst', who bit Beren's hand off.
Right again, Gwindor! Grondy will be very happy with you when he gets back Smile Smilie And you get the pseudo Silmaril!

I need some time to think up another question..
OK, who, according to Legolas, are the Galadrim?
The people dwelling in Laurelindorenan, the land of the valley of singing gold, or in Lothlorien - The Dreamflower.
Close enough, Thorin! I was thinking specifically of people that dwell in trees but that's where the trees were so I'll award you Grondy's pretty Bauble.

New question tomorrow. I have to admit to being very worried about Mr. Grond, he's been gone a long time.
New Question: what was "the song most fair that ever in words was woven"?
Lay of Leithian?

Edit : Upon reflection I am thinking that I'm in the right location but not quite there. Luthien had to sing it, so I'm guessing the song to Mandos?
That's it! You get Grondy's Pretty Bauble this time. Y'all are too quick for me! I'll have another question tomorrow.
Who was not on the "old lists"?
Hobbits or Halflings, according to Treebeard.
Obviously I'm not a very good sub for dear Grondy Smile Smilie You're too smart for me! Yes, Gwindor, you get Grondy's pseudo Silmaril Smile Smilie

I'll try to find something harder for tomorrow!
I finally have a new question, apologies for the wait!

What is Elven rope made of?
Hithlain!
Right! Thorin, you get Grondy's pseudo-Silmaril and I get to tighten my thinking cap!
Explain "Gorthaur".
An Old Name for Sauron, Also Meaning 'Terrible Dread', It was used by the Sindar in the First Age.
>sigh< I really thought I had a hard question there. I'll try again tomorrow Smile Smilie
No reply to the question Sian . just nice to see you all Happy Elf Smilie
You too, Mellon. Long time, no see.
I'm glad you're here Mellon!



Ok, now for another easy question: explain Bar-en-Danwedh.
Hmm...

Let's see, "bar" is Sindarin for home or dwelling (which I've always found amusing), so that would translate to "house of ____"

I know that I know this. So it's going to really bug me when I hear what it is. And why do I think it has something to do with dwarves?
Not giving any hints Smile Smilie I'm embarassed about not having stumped y'all yet Smile Smilie
Well, you stump me plenty, if that counts for anything. I thought maybe I would give someone else a hint, since my brain was not coming up with it earlier. But, at last it finally came to me.

It is about a dwarf. Namely, Mim, who calls it "house of ransom" because he gave it to Turin in exchange for not being killed.
Is there additional information that you are looking for?
That's what I wanted to hear! You get Grondy's pretty psuedo Silmaril Smile Smilie And I'll hunt for another question!
Who is the father of horses?
I asked this on another thread a couple of months ago, forget which one. The usual answer is Felarof (Eorl's horse) who was the first of the Mearas, as quoted somewhere in LOTR. Although there is another school of thought which puts Nahar, Orome's steed, as the first ever horse, also true. But the quote usually applies to Felarof.
That's the answer I was thinking of Smile Smilie You get the prize, Gwindor, and I will try to have another question tomorrow!
What could men not be saved from for a second time?
"The men cud not be saved a second time from such a breach of conduct" and it happens in the silmarillion when Ar-Pharazoan lands in Aman
Who or what is galathilion??
Your answer is correct Undomiel and your prize is Grondy's psuedo Silmaril Smile Smilie Your question (above) is the next one!
So the answer to that is..?
The White Tree of Tirion - made by Yavanna
Correct! Gwindor gets Grondy's pretty bauble this time Smile Smilie Anyone else want to pose the next question? Maybe you can think up harder ones than I can.
Aegnor's lover?
Andreth.
Perfect, ur turn to ask then. :-)
Translate these from Elvish. (You only need to translate one.)

Ava vanta i salquessë. - Clue: K O T G

They are Random so they are hard.
Keep off the grass.

Go jump into Mount Doom, Kingfisher.
What is Treegarth?
