Which peak did the Endless Stair lead up to
Ever up now we went, until we came to the Endless Stair.
From the lowest dungeon to the highest peak it climbed, ascending in unbroken spiral in many thousand steps, until it issued at last in Durin's Tower carved in the living rock of Zirakzigil, the pinnacle of the Silvertine.

Bilbo never forgot that flight, clinging on to Dori's ankles. He moaned 'my arms, my arms!'; but Dori groaned 'my poor legs, my poor legs!'
Tol-in-Gaurhoth stood on what river

Good thing the Rohirrim turned up to interrupt the Lord of the Nazgűl or there would have been even more work for Gimli's people.
Val gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.

What was the chief dwelling of the Faithful in the later days of Númenor
"And the chief dwelling of the Faithful in the later days was thus nigh to the harbour of Romenna."
It is stated in the Silmarillion in the chapter called Akallabeth (not quite 10 pages into it.) I looked up The Faithful and is said see The Elendili. I started checking out the page nubmers listed. This was at the top of the page of my book.

Your answer of 'Andram' is correct so you now have another bauble to add to your collection, as well as the free cuddly badger which Plastic Squirrel just gave you.

What two things did the King send Giles on the feast of St. Michael
Oh, btw it is from Tolkien's short story Farmer Giles of Ham. It is an excellent story, if you have not read it, I do recommend it. Also there is Smith of Wooten Major, another good Tolkien story.

So one Pseudo-Silmaril to Remi for his two answers.
Another one is up for grabs for the name of the third item.
On the feast of St. Michael - the King sent a magnificant letter. It was written in red upon white parchment, and expressed the royal approbation of "our loyal subject and well-beloved AEgidius Ahenobarbus Julius Agricola de Hammo."
Better than the testimonial was the accompanying gift. The King sent a belt and a long sword.
Remi, I got the same thing that you did about Caudimordax (Tailbiter)
Grondy, if remi is not correct, then I am just as confused.
The King sent Giles (actually named Ćgodius Ahenobarbus Julius Agricola de Hammo) a magnificent letter written in red on white parchment expressing the royal approbation, a testimonial with an attached large red seal.
The original quiz wanted the answers "letter of approbation and a sword" and thus was wrong as it should have asked for "two out of three" or for all three. :elfembar:
Sorry to have been the source of confusion here Remi; I meant to answer this yesterday, but quit before I got back to it, after spending 10-1/2 hours working on P-T yesterday, including our wonderful Bilbo's Study chat room discussion on the Nazgűl.
