I did it (with ROTK) and got the following:
'Take care, take care!' he said. 'For you have already grown since I saw you last.'
Beware of tree shilling ambrosia. Big Smile Smilie
hehe, mine was:

"Our names and our business are our own, and this does not seem a good place to discusss them." - Frodo

Big Smile Smilie Big Smile Smilie Big Smile Smilie
I did it with TT and got
"And now indeed light alone can help us."

maybe I should dig out a night-light for tonight or something
Smile Smilie
I would have started playing this game earlier, if it didn't entail actually getting up and walking all the way to the other room to get a book....Wink Smilie

We did some salvage work this morning.
'And I,' said Legolas, 'will take all the arrows that I can find, for my quiver is empty.'

Hmm. I think I'll join chika in her salvaging operations. Smile Smilie
I like this game! I got (from TTT)

"Hoo, eh? Entmoot?" said Treebeard, turning round.

I wonder what that could mean... :o Wink Smilie
So far Gollums' plot had succeeded.

Very ominous.....
The TT.

I just sat up, staring, with my mouth open.

Quite appropriate considering the state I woke up in this morning
Was the Phantom Eagle sitting on your bedpost during the night? In my drinking days he was my nemesis, because in the morning I could always tell when he had been roosting above my bed. Yuck! Big Smile Smilie

Thankfully, nothing worse than a thick head and green dragon's breath.

"I wonder," said Strider.

Why do I always get these sorta silly lines? Ha Ha Ha Smilie
Tried again with ROTK and got this:

"Careful!" he whispered. "Steps. Lots of steps. Must be careful!"

From now on I'm going to be very careful when I climb the stairs here at home! Very Big Grin Smilie
Take care Tom! I got a bad slip on the stairs on Monday and my knee hurts me even now!
I tried again and you know what? I got exactly the same sentence as when I did it for the first time!

Here they washed themselves and drank their fill at the in-falling freshet

Can you believe this?!!!
Strange strange!
' No, no! cried Gimli.'

Very useful.....
Watch out Eryan!
Stand clear of the ouiji board!
from page 1147 of the Unwritten and Unedited Works of JRR Tolkien by Christopher Tolkien. NOT! Shaking Head Smilie Very Big Grin Smilie
NOw that was a mean one, Grondy... Nevertheless a good one... Very Big Grin Smilie
ROFL! You'd better do it Grond, you never know.... Wink Smilie

It was Gandalf who roused them all from sleep.

In one respect the narrative of the lay is at variance with the story told in the Silmarillion.

From the "Lays of Beleriand", well, the commentary on them anyway. That'll teach me to use HoMe books...
Okay, one for real:
At the best of times heights made Bilbo giddy.
Wary Smilie
Uh oh.

The Ents were coming:ever nearer and louder rose their song:
We come, we come with horn and drum: ta-runa runa runa rom!

Glad I'm not Saruman.
When Aldarion sought out Erendis she looked at him keenly but did not come forward to meet him; and he stood for a while at a loss of words, as was not his wont

Mysterious! Will I be Aldarion or Erendis?

Oh, will that help my life?
From Unfinished Tales (for a change):

Thus it came to pass that on a day in the beginning of the year (twenty and three since the Nirnaeth) Tuor sat by a spring that trickled forth near to the door of the cave where he dwelt; and he looked out westward towards the cloudy sunset.
From RotK
"Burn him alive?" said Gandalf.

oh yes, I really needed that one!
Ha Ha Ha Smilie

From The Sil:

High and white were its walls, and smooth its stairs, and tall and strong was the tower of the King.
Sounds like you must be invincible!

"Don't you know we are at war?"

Sad Smilie
Ha Ha Ha Smilie
Seems I'm not the only one who keeps getting these silly lines...
Ha Ha Ha Smilie
"Drownded?" said several voices.

I don't think I want to play this game anymore! Too depressing!
Hmm 42, this is strange. Here's what Aragorn has to say about your predicament:
'It is not madness, lady,' he answered; for I go on a path appointed. But those who follow me do so of their own free will; and if they wish now to remain and ride with the Rohirrim, they may do so. But I shall take the Paths of the Dead, alone, if needs be.'
Was there a date on the barrels?

Okay that sounds better Smile Smilie
From the Sil:

But now a cry went up, passing up the wind from the south from vala to vale, and Elves and Men lifted their voices in wonder and joy.

This is bound to be one heck of a day! Big Smile Smilie
But even as he ceased, and the people wept, Turin himself came before them. For when the dragon died, his swoon left him, and he fell into a deep sleep of weariness/quote]

Well if I am to be a dragon slayer, I do not mind to have a sleeping fit afterwards!
Felt like playing this again......

Their talk died down into a listening silence.


Smile Smilie
::whispering:: This is pretty cool, hold on a sec.

Uh oh...

'Well, master, we're in a fix and no mistake,' said Sam Gamgee.

From TTT

Learn now the lore of ...

And so on and so on. From TTT (of course)
yes, i've done that a few times. just look at my signature. i got that game down! i think i've done every line...
From Unfinished Tales:

The heart of Mavwin was filled with hope.

Wonder what that one means? Cool Smilie Very Big Grin Smilie Very Big Grin Smilie Shaking Head Smilie
Now this is fun. Here is where I landed in FOTR
Of course my dear Bilbo, said Gandalf. If you had really started this affair, you might be expected to finish it.

Read Smilie
Every time I do this I get a terribly awful one!! I wonder what that might be trying to say? Sad Smilie Big Laugh Smilie Mad Smilie
Ok, I had to try. Here's what I got from the Silmarillion.

Down the ancient road they came that led throug the long defile of Sirion,...

hmmm, what does that one mean?
"Gnats in a net. May the curse of Faramir bite that Gollum and bite him quick!"

Sam in TT
The sword Anglachel was forged anew for him by cunning smiths of NArgothrond, and though ever black its edges shone with pale fire; and he named it Gurthang, Iron of Death

Rather optimistic - I'd really like to be forged anew myself! Big Smile Smilie
'My name is Gandalf!'
'Never heared of him!'

Very Big Grin Smilie Now do tell us where that one came from, Raptor...

"Ahem! Excuse me? Big terrifying monster here? Can I have your attention a second please?’

From Gandalf and the Balrog by the one and only Plastic Squirrel. Big Laugh Smilie
Beorn and Gandalf,in the hobbit....tst,tst,tst,Tom,not knowing that....shame on you! Very Big Grin Smilie
Today I got this, from "The Silmarillion":
and he called and hearing no answer he went in search of aid, for he was weary and sick

Strange how it fits well to my present mood! Big Smile Smilie
"There are the doors before you," said the guide.

Hmmm, Sounds like someone is leaving.

[Edited on 18/12/2002 by Stonehelm]
Okay, I am going to take one quote from each of the LOTR books...

Frodo soon went to sleep again; but his dreams were again troubled with the noise of wind and of galloping hoofs.

I guess I won't be sleeping very well tonight...

They had not gone very far when they came upon a great fissure that yawned suddenly black before their feet.

This doesn't sound good...

Let the other companies behind follow these three that lead, as they have the chance.

Hmm... Am I supposed to be a leader of a follower? I must say, this is going to be a very intresting day!
Amarie tells me she thinks the idea is to randomnly pick a quote from Tolkien - I imagine by opening a book at a random page and plonking one's finger somewhere......... so......

Lonely men are we, Rangers of the wild, hunters - but hunters ever of the servants of the Enemy; for they are found in many places, not in Mordor only.

Sounds like I shall be going shopping tomorrow.
