So it now reads:

_ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ D / _ _ _ / G _ L D _ _ - _ _ D /

_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / B _ _ _ / _ L _ _ _ !

Hooray, there are still no incorrect guesses at this time.
some Os? Yes, we have one B, three Ds, one G, and two Ls for Thorin; and eight, count'em eight Os for Thinker.

So it now reads:

_ _ O _ / _ O _ _ / _ _ _ D / _ O _ / G O L D _ _ - _ _ D /

_ _ _ / _ _ O _ _ / _ O _ / B O _ _ / _ L O _ _ !

Hooray, there are still no incorrect guesses at this time. What about a couple of Rs? Yes, we have one B, three Ds, one G, and two Ls for Thorin; and eight, count'em eight Os for Thinker; and four Rs for Thorin.

_ _ _ / _ R O _ _ / _ O _ / B O R _ / _ L O _ _ !

Hooray, there are still no incorrect guesses at this time.

There are now only three missing letters needed to fill in the remaining six blanks. Sorry, There is nary an M nor an S in my puzzle. I'd give a hint here, but as there are only three missing letters, l think that would be anti-climatic. I? Anyone want to revive this game by posting a new quiz? No, I isn't one of them

One of the missing letters is U. See if you can now solve it.

It is a good thing it was almost solved, for the solution file expired with my old hard drive. I'm sure that the first word is UPON, so I'll put forward the U. Is Y the other letter?
Is this it?

Upon your head, how golden red; The crown you bore aloft. You don't know how excited I am now that this thread is up and running again. And, I do believe the above post is correct.
Kaching.

Do I make one now, or is it back to whoever is running this thread? Eruheran has it correct, and may now make for us the next puzzle. The verse is from Bregalad's lament for the rowan-trees ravished by the Orcs. He sang it while the hobbits were waiting at his Ent house during the Entmoot and is found in TTT.
_ _ _ ? _ _ , _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ ' _/ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _.
_ _ _ _ _ /_ _ / _ _ _ _ /_ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ , _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _.

This one might look hard, but It is probably quite predictable.

Hint; Similar to a quote from a 900 year old space frog, part of it is. OK... I'll start off with something certain. An E?

A beautiful quote that you gave, Eruheran, and one of the lines from the films which were moving yet did not come from Tolkien himself.

Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take.(continued) The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it.
Pippin: What, Gandalf? See what?
Gandalf: White shores... and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.
Pippin: Well, that isn't so bad.
Gandalf: No... no, it isn't.
