Galdor of the Havens.

I do have a small scale replica TARDIS. Smile Smilie We could get a 'featured members' section and put people in there. Or we could get titles to put under our names. Titles could include, but are not limited to: Queen/King of Trivial Things, Chicken Chaser, Dumpling, Lionheart, Desperado, Joker, The Chosen One, Overlord, etc... Or, we could just tally how many times we've won a prize or some other thing, and put that number on a profile, or under our names along with where we're from and how many posts we've had.
Anarya, all knower of most things has got another correct answer and gets a Duck Smilie rubber duckie.

Where did Aragorn find Gollum, prior to the forming of the Fellowship Question Smilie
Aragorn hunted all across Rhovanion, and he finally captured Gollum in the Dead Marshes north of Mordor. Aragorn then brought him as a captive to King Thranduil’s halls in Mirkwood, where Gandalf questioned him.

@Grondy:If i get this right i get Aragorn's autograph.If not,i get a kiss from him.
I am sure you can arrange this Grondy
Odette has the correct answer and though I'm not Eru I'll ask Aragorn to blow you a kiss. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of the pass in Mordor between Gorgoroth and Udûn Question Smilie
Barred pass of Isenmouthe is it?

In what month of what year, did Saruman arrive in the Shire Question Smilie
Make it Legolas' autograph Grondy.Thanks
Okay Odette, just like the faux one of Aragorn, but of Legolas.

And the question remains:

In what month of what year, did Saruman arrive in the Shire Question Smilie
September 22, Year 3019 in the King's Reckoning. Do I get bonus for knowing Shire-reckoning? If so, it was in year 1419. Wink Smilie
Anarya has the correct answer and may receive her choice of one of the above faux autographs. Happy Elf Smilie

What was "New Row" Question Smilie
New Row would be the name of Bagshot Row, after it was destroyed by Sharkey's men and rebuilt.

D'aww, no bonus? Wink Smilie I wouldn't mind one o' them shiny daggers. Also, if I need to wait a bit longer before answering/guessing tell me. Big Smile Smilie
For the correct answer, Anarya receives one shiny dagger made from ice, hopefully it won't be melted and evaporated by her email server.

What constellation was known as the "sickle" in the Shire Question Smilie
Is it the Great Bear? I might have this one mixed up. Wink Smilie
No Fornad, you have it right; it is Ursa Major, or the Great Bear. You get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the nickname of Madoc Brandybuck Question Smilie

@Grondy:I want a 3 days 2 nights trip with Earendil
Okay, for the correct answer Odeette gets the trip; but can she hold her breath that long in a vacuum?

Describe Sauron's Road Question Smilie
My name never had an extra "e" in between and I will take an oxygen mask.Thank's Grondy.A million hugsSmile Smilie
If Odete gets the answer to the above question Odette (with only two Es) will get an oxygen mask. Happy Elf Smilie

What color were the Ulumúri Question Smilie
Road from Barad-dur to Mount Doom in Mordor.Sauron's Road began at the great western gate of Barad-dur. It spanned a deep abyss by way of a long iron bridge and then ran westward for a league (3 miles) across Gorgoroth. On either side of the road there were smoking chasms.At the foot of Mount Doom, Sauron's Road climbed a long causeway up the eastern slopes. The road then wound upwards around the mountain, turning first south then west then north and back to the east. The road encircled the base of the mountain, which was 3,000 feet high, and then ran partway up the cone, which rose another 1,500 feet. It ended at the door to the Chambers of Fire on the east side of Mount Doom facing the Window of the Eye in Barad-dur.Sauron's Road was a broad path paved with ash and broken rubble. The road was frequently blocked or damaged by the volcanic eruptions of Mount Doom and it was cleared and repaired by Orcs.
The Ulumúri were made out of white shell by Salmar for the Vala Ulmo.
Odette does get her oxygen mask and Fornad another pretty bauble for the correct answers. Happy Elf Smilie

Who or what was "Thalion" Question Smilie
Ehh. I want a refund for my ice dagger. I never received it.

Also. I do not know who or what Thalion is, but 'thalion' is Sindarin for strong or dauntless.
Húrin Thalion,elder son of Galdor the Tall of the House of Hador and Hareth of the Haladin, and he had a younger brother Huor.

Only the oxygen mask for that big paragraph? Very Sad Smilie
Closed the italics. Tongue Smilie
Okay, I can't please some of the people anytime, so we will revert back the to ephemeral Pseudo-Silmarils and their pseudonyms, the pretty baubles. Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie

Odette has the answer for which I was looking; she gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Extracts from 'the Compendium of Elvish wisdom (The Books of Lore) and also oral sources, kept and heard in Rivendell, were the basis used by whom for the Translations from the Elvish
Tolkien? That was a wild guess.
No, it was one of his characters.
Then I think it might have been Bilbo, when he was living out the rest of his days in Rivendell.
That is correct Fornad; you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

How and where did Flár die Question Smilie
Can't get anything on Flar? Is he a dwarf or one of the Rohirrim?

Wish you would give us a clue!
Oops, my bad spelling; his name was supposed to be Frár. So the question is now:

How and where did Frár die Question Smilie
Give some clues Grondy?
Still can't find Frar
Frár was dwarf who fell defending the second hall of Moria against the goblins that forced their way across the Bridge of Khazad-dûm. This is recorded is the Book of Mazarbul.
I hope you realise how long that took me to find, Grondy! Wink Smilie

What was Carach Angren and where was it located Question Smilie
It's a passage between the plains of Gorgoroth and the valley of Udun in Mordor.
