Oh, I automatically assumed (as that was how it was done i nthe past in this thread) that you wait for the person who gave the question to say whether it was correct or not......

Who was the Master of Buckland at the time when Gandalf came to the Shire and Bilbo's Party???

Per Appendix B: Bilbos Tea Party was in TA 2949, which was 1349 SR.
Per Appendix D: Gorbadoc 'Broadbelt' lived from 1260-1363 SR and his father had died in 1310 SR
Thus Gorbadoc 'Broadbelt' was Master of Buckland at that time.

Of course if the "party" was meant to be his eleventy-first birthday party in (TA 3001 - 1600) = 1401 SR, then it would have been Rorimac 'Goldfather' (Old Rory) (1302-1408) as his father died in 1363 SR

Who were Arwen Evenstar's brothers :question:

easy easy easy,

Eladan and Elrohir

(incidently, both these names hint at there mixed lineage, the start of both names is El short form of sindarin elf, the word adan means "man" and the word rohir comes from sindarin rochir "horselord", which you shouold recognise from rohirrim, so both names kinda mean elf-man)

No, Gorbadoc "Broadbelt" Brandybuck left his title to his son at the time of Bilbo's party and his name was Rorimac "Goldfather" Brandybuck and he was at Bilbo's Party and saw him dissapear, but no-one really did because of Gandalf's wizardry...... sorry to poop your parade Grondy :lookar:

oh and morambar, was your question RE the elf and the white tree ever answered

if not i would hazard a guess at Celeborn seeing as his name means "silver-tree" so a quenya cognate could be tyelep (quenya) + orne (tree)
therefore =
tyelep+orne ~ teleporno ~ telperion ???
:D
