#7 Me is guessing it's the Ents.

I'm sorry folks, but I'm guessing I'm right here, so whoever gets to post next here after me can go ahead and post a new one. :cool:

#7 No it isn't "Ents", as they could be found in the Third Age.

I must admit, I was thinking of the entwives for this one, but #5 ruled them out.

#8 Are they speaking beings?

#8 Yes, they were speaking beings, also very long winded I have to assume, as we have never met any, and they are now only a sad memory. :(

(I know we are supposed to only give one word answers, but I was afraid you would go off on the wrong track and wouldn't be able to get back.) :P:

You've got me stumped big time Grondy. The only race I can think of that disappeared out at this time were the entwives. I've been mulling over this one to distraction... Someone put me out of my misery and get this one quick. I'll then be able to say, "Oh, yer, I'd forget about them."

Okay, I'll give you a major clue: What are the consequenses of Val's last post in this thread. Also re-look at answers #5, #6, #7 and #8. I tried not to deceive you. :elfwink:

I apologise for wasting a clue here, but I've just got to ask...

#9 Is it by any chance the Entwives?

#9 No it is not the Entwives, but as a direct consequence of their dissapearance, there can no longer be any of my 'E-word'. (See movie cover TTT pg. 78) Also review
# 6 ...collective group or race...
where I have added the bold highlighting.

Hopefully this will be a slam your ice cream cone into the middle of your forehead answer with an "Oh yes, I forgot about them!" rather than my having to apologize for such a lame puzzle.

If you don't figure it out from this, I'll give the answer tomorrow and let someone else take over with an easier one or at least a better one, for this one is going nowhere fast and I don't see how anymore narrowing down guesses will be anything other than futile. :elfbiggrin:

#10 Let's try Ent Children, Entlings, whatever they were called.

#10 close enough Val, Entings is the word.

Now, since Val is going to sea and I don't want to subject everyone with another boring dud, I think we should let someone else start the next game.

Who wants to start it?
