This game has been moved from General Discussion:

Dwrflord Posted Saturday 11th June 2005

Dwarflord at your service

This idea is simple: Just outline two different situations, and ask the next person, where would he/she prefer to be and why...the next person answers and comes up with 2 new situations for someone else.

I'll start of with:
1. At the Prancing Pony, with a mug of ale and Strider at your table. Someone has just started a song in the corner...
OR
2. In the ruins of Isengard, eating salted pork with Merry and Pip...

where and why?

Umm...The Prancing Pony, with Strider (*Drools*).
1. Mirkwood Forest, with the Grey-Elves on the eve of their autumn celebrations, to see the king crowned in leaves and berries, and hear the songs of the Elves.

2. Sitting in Bag-End, eating seed cakes and drinking tea with Bilbo and Gandalf on Bilbo's 111th birthday, seeing the excitment outside as the town prepared for the party later, and to hear the tales of Gandalf and Bilbo first hand.

(I hope that's what you wanted! )

Where and why?


Dwrflord Posted Saturday 11th June 2005
Lemaly, you forgot to choose one of my scenarios, and say why.

I prefer Bag End and the company of Bilbo and Gandalf, because there is nothing better than listening to tales, especially when Gandalf does the talking.

1. In Woody End, sitting with Frodo, Sam and Pip by the fire.
OR
2. In Ithilien, with Sam, while he prepares his coney-stew.

where and why?

In Ithilien, because that would give me a chance to see: Sam, Frodo, Gollum, and the Oliphaunts. :P Plus the fact that I can taste Sam's stew.

1. With Merry and Pippin in Fangorn Forest, when they are talking to Treebeard in his dwelling-place Wellinghall.
OR
2. With the four Hobbits in the Old Forest when they are having a quiet talk with Tom and Goldberry in their house.

With the Four Hobbits and Tom and Goldberry...because Tom always made me smile, and I've always wanted to meet him and his wife.

1) In Gondor after Aragorn was crowned king...
OR
2) In Hobbiton after Frodo and Sam killed Saruman and Wormtongue...

In Gondor after the coronation, because I bet there was one great party after that.

1. Under the Misty Mountains, listening to Bilbo's and Gollum's Riddle Game.
OR
2. In Farmer Maggot's house, eating mushrooms with the Hobbits.

Under the Misty Mountains, because I love this scene, I love Gollum & Bilbo & The Hobbit, and I hate mushrooms.
By the way, nice game.

1. In Lothlorien, meeting Galadriel and Celeborn
or
2. Inside the Lonely Mountain, having a chat with Smaug.

Definately in Lothlorien meeting Galadriel and Celeborn because it sounded so beautiful and I would want to see the golden leaves.

1) Sitting in a boat on the Long Lake as Bard shot the Black Arrow and brought Smaug to his death...
OR
2) Sitting outside in Hobbiton on the day of Sam and Rosie's wedding.

The first. I always wanted to meet Smaug. :wink:

1. With Gandalf and Pippin on their way to Minas Tirith on Shadowfax's back.
OR
2. With Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas when they're chasing the Uruk-Hai.

Definetely with the Three Runners, although I doubt if i'd stand the incredible pace. I've always liked this part.

How about this one, choose the trouble you'd rather be in (you don't know the outcome, of course):

1. Captured by Goblins in the Misty Mountains, you are being dragged deeper and deeper, towards the roots of the Mountains.
OR
2. Standing in the Chamber of Mazarbul, you hear shrieks and Orc battle cries. They are coming closer...

the first. I prefer being already captured to waiting for them to come without knowing what will happen as soon as they come in. *I'm a coward*

1. Sitting on a bench in Rivendell chatting with Elrond
or
2. Standing in front of the Black Gate when the Mouth of Sauron is about to come out

the first one, the three of them make a perfect team

1. Hobbiton, celebrating Bilbo's 111th birthday (and my 200th post :birthday: )
or
2. Grey Havens, watching Frodo's ship pass into the West
