Send your ideas for our weekly Poll to council@planet-tolkien.com or send a private message to any one of the Council Members. They don't have to be 100% serious but some connection, however loose, to Tolkien would be nice. However, we will consider anything that might be of interest to our members.

The members might also look through Poll Suggestions in the Green Dragon Tavern to see if there are any of the old suggestions they would like to see run or rerun as it has been a couple years since the previous weekly (or should that be weakly) poll machine was abandoned. :elfwink:

Who got 500 Mithril points for her idea, so if you'd like to earn some Mithril then send in those ideas.

So why when I click on "previous poll results" do I get only the very first poll and none of the others?

Would it be stupid to suggest one here? Or is that too easy? ;-p

How bout "Most Tragic of the Noldor?"

Finrod, who left his true Love in Valinor, driven from Nargorthrond by avaricious Celegorm and Curufin and their Oath, to the redemption of his own in Minas Tirith: driven from his home, to die in his home, forsaken by all his kin.

Feanor, his father slain by Morgoth (whom he held dearer than the Silmarils themselves, "and who among sons, of Elves or of Men, have held their fathers of greater worth?") and seize the Silmarils he would never behold again, driving him in turn to his mad Oath and the Doom of the Noldor in the Kinslaying and Exile that would consume his house.

Turgon, who built the fairest of realms in Middle-earths history, "so that Gondolin upon Amon Gwareth becaem fair indeed and fit to compare with Elven Tirion beyond the sea," so at the last despite the counsel of Ulmo he couldn't leave it, and was betrayed by the nephew that cost his only sisters life, his own and that of his realm. And let's not forget the Helcaraxe, passed by Turgon, but not Elenwe his wife.

Fingolfin, whose line endures alone in Elrond and Eldarion, after Aredhel was slain by Eol, Turgon seemingly by his own hand in the fall of the Kings Tower in Gondolin, Fingon by Gothmog in the Nirnaeth, and himself by Morgoth, driven by the despair and madness of the Dagor Bragollach to a hopeless challenge symbolic of the Elder Days, where he seven times struck mighty blows against the Enemy, but was at last overcome as he KNEW any Elda must be by Vala.

Or Maedhros, heir to his father, and to his fathers disinheritance, leader of his brothers and penultimate victim of the Oath he did not love but could not loose, watching his fathers soul consume his body, then losing his hand when his dearest friend and cousin Fingon came to free him from torturous death despite the apparent betrayal at the Grinding Ice, one in which Maedhros took no part, only to see Fingon slain in the Nirnaeth, his kin Elured Elurin left to die by his own men, from which he could not save them and, at last, slaying the guards of Valinor and stealing the Silmarils at last finding all their cost wasted on what he could not hold and did not want, yet was bound to by Oath and fell Maglor (and what of him, who shared in all these things and whose end none save Eru know?)

Or Finwe, High King of the Noldor, and "Hurin of Valinor" who beheld as well these things destroy his House, and could do naught to aid as all his sons save Finarfin were slain until the Host of Valinor marched?

Enough?

Now who's the noblest of the Atani?

I like the "most tragic" one! Although I'd add Turin, Thingol and Melian(for Luthien).

Gotta be a rat race between Beren and Aragorn, narrowly won by Beren.
