Dis is it not?
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 Question Smilie
Tolman, I believe.
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 Smile Smilie
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'. Happy Elf Smilie

Whose singing was exquisite and she was always accompanied by nightingales, whom she taught to sing Question Smilie
Hint: She had a girdle. Elf Winking Smilie
Melian the Maia.
Undomiel gets the Pseudo-Silmaril for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie

Where was the Muster of Rohan held Question Smilie
Hint: Púkal Men
Harrowdale?
Dunharrow is it not?
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. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of the White Tree of the Eldar, made by Yavanna and planted before Mindon in Tirion Question Smilie
Galathilion
Correct Eruheran, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What is the Sindarin for halflings (ie: hobbits) Question Smilie
Peran? Or something like that.
Something like that, but with a bunch more letters. Elf Winking Smilie

Please try again. Happy Elf Smilie
Perian...?
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) Question Smilie

Khazad-dum
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. Happy Elf Smilie

Who slew Caranthir and why Question Smilie
Dior?
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. Happy Elf Smilie

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. Question Smilie
Girion? or something like that..
Yes Kerridamm, it was Girion so you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What river runs through the Old Forest Question Smilie
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. Happy Elf Smilie

What was another name for Irmo the Vala Question Smilie

Was it Mandos?
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. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of Treebeard's home that Merry and Pippin visited Question Smilie
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. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was also known as Lock-bearer and why Question Smilie
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. Happy Elf Smilie

What color was Hasufel Question Smilie
Hasufel was a grey horse.
Correct it is a grey horse!
Kerridamm has the correct answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

To whom was Iorlas related and how Question Smilie
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. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the original name of Gondolin Question Smilie
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. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the 'Flower of Silver' Question Smilie
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 Question Smilie
In Frogmorton. I had to go to the Index of LOTR to get it. But good question. Smile Smilie
