Correct Undomiel, have a pretty bauble, but don't answer the question below until 24 hours have passed since I posted it; so others might get a chance at it.
What was Farmer Cotton's first name
I know I'm not a huge contributor to this game, but I think we should go back to the old format. We have other games like this, and it just seems better the old way, but that's just my opinion.
I agree with Gimli. I prefer the old system where only Grondy asked the question. People sometime forget it's there turn to post
Yeah. This system has killed a few other threads. (EG; we are lucky to have 'Wheel of Tolkien' back. We only got it back because the word was obvious.)
Okay then, back to the old way, where I ask the questions and you good people come up with the answers and collect nonexistent Pseudo-Silmarils for the correct answers.
Gwindor gets the pretty bauble for 'Tolman'.
Whose singing was exquisite and she was always accompanied by nightingales, whom she taught to sing
Undomiel gets the Pseudo-Silmaril for the correct answer.
Where was the Muster of Rohan held
Well it was in the area of Harrowdale valley; but it took place up the hill at the Hold of Dunharrow. So Undomiel gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.
What was the name of the White Tree of the Eldar, made by Yavanna and planted before Mindon in Tirion
Correct Eruheran, you get the pretty bauble.
What is the Sindarin for halflings (ie: hobbits)
Peran? Or something like that.
Something like that, but with a bunch more letters.
Please try again.
That's close enough for the Pseud-Silmaril Eruheran: the full answer was periannath
What was a more common name for 'Dwarrowdelf' I'll accept Dwarvish or Sindarin, or both)
I don't have a clue, but from the answer above me, I will guess Moria
Both answers were correct, but Kerridamm got there first and so gets the pretty bauble.
Who slew Caranthir and why
Because he attacked Menegroth to try to wrest away the silmaril won by Beren and Luthien
Undomiel has the correct person and Thorin has the why of it. Thorin gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.
Who was the last King of Dale of the old line. He was killed by Smaug, but his wife and children escaped to continue the royal line.
Girion? or something like that..
Yes Kerridamm, it was Girion so you get the pretty bauble.
What river runs through the Old Forest
the withywindle ? dont know if it would strictly be a river though
It is a river by the time it reaches the Brandywine River. Golden_Red gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.
What was another name for Irmo the Vala
I think it was actually his brother Lórien, master of visions and dreams.
Thorin, I've been trying to contact you for days about ADTFTN. Can you check the planning thread, please?
Fornad has the correct answer and the pretty bauble.
What was the name of Treebeard's home that Merry and Pippin visited
One of their homes you mean, for they have many. If it is so, Wellinghall would be one of Treebeard's homes.
Well, Wellinghall is what I was after, it is where those two hobbits drank the Ent-draughts that made them grow taller than normal hobbits. Undomiel gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.
Who was also known as Lock-bearer and why
I just watched FOTR, and Galadriel gave Gimli a lock of her hair. So Gimli is my guess.
Not a lock but three did she bestow on Gimli. It was denied to Feanor the greatest of all the elven smiths. (It would be too much to call him THE greatest of the elves of Arda though he might be)
Guys, I have changed my profile user name from Undomiel to Estel because of the gender confusion it seemed to create! I was thinking why can't a male be an Evenstar of his people.
Eruheran gets the pretty bauble for the correct answer.
What color was Hasufel
Hasufel was a grey horse.
Correct it is a grey horse!
Kerridamm has the correct answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril.
To whom was Iorlas related and how
Is he related to Bergil, his uncle? I am sure I'm correct. Bergil mentions he is off to see the Spring of Lebennon.
Yes, Iorlas is Bergil's uncle. Estel gets the pretty bauble.
What was the original name of Gondolin
Ondolinde or ' The stone of the song' or something like that. Isn't that the name that Turgon appointed to be its name in the High Elven tongue?
Exactly Estel; you get the Pseudo-Silmarill.
What was the 'Flower of Silver'
Well since one of the Two Trees was silver and one was gold I think that the flower of silver was on one of the trees (?)... however I dont know their names off the top of my head...
I'll try Ithil - the moon?
You stole my thunder Thorin. He is right Grondy. It is the Rose of Telperion, known as Rana the Wayward.
Kerridamm's answer was in the ballpark, but Thorin has the correct answer. The Moon was called that, because it was the last flower of Telperion.
In which Shire village was The Floating Log located
In Frogmorton. I had to go to the Index of LOTR to get it. But good question.
