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. Elf Winking Smilie
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. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
#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?
Okay, I'll do another one, much easier:

AGE: Third Age.
AREA: Northwest Middle-earth
Eyespy with my little eye... something that starts with... L

#7 Is it the Lossoth?
#7 No
#8 Is it Lothiriel, the daughter of Prince Imrahil and wife of King Eomer?
#8 No
Cow Sleeping Smilie softly whispered, just within the range of hearing, 'Pssst! Think hobbits.'
NO.8 hmmm, i'm not sure if i'm remembering correctly. Is it Lotho Sackville-Baggins? Did he survive until the 4th age???
#8 Nope, Lotho Sackville-Baggins didn't last into the Fourth Age as Wormtongue probably didn't arrive in the Shire until about the time Gandalf, Elrond, and the hobbits arrived back in Rivendell. I just looked it up and the company arrived in Rivendell on 21 September 3019 and Wormtongue arrived in the Shire on 22 September so Lotho was killed, possiblly eaten some time between Bilbo's 129th birthday and November third, the Battle of Bywater. The Fourth Age didn't start untill the Ringbearers set sail from the Grey Havens.

Ah Sugar! I was right the first time: My character didn't make it to the Fourth Age either, sorry. He/she/it died about 18 months shy of the fourth age, in The Great Year of Plenty.

Maybe I should do more detailed research or pound into my head that the Fourth Age did not start with the downfall of Sauron, which is what I thought when I first came to Planet-Tolkien. When Gandalf said:
But in Gondor the New Year will always now begin upon the twenty-fifth of March when Sauron fell ...
For some mistaken reason I thought he said New Age; even though I have known for a few years now that it didn't start until they sailed from the Grey Havens. However, every now and then the old data pops into my head. Sorry.

Maybe I better not pose anymore puzzles in this thread; the little knowledge I have turns out to be dangerous, or at least misleading or in error much too often. Got The Blues Smilie

Anyway #8 No it wasn't Lotho Sackville-Baggins. Animated Wink Smilie Animated Wink Smilie nod nod
#9 Is it Lobelia SB?
Happy Elf Smilie Yes Peredhil, Lobelia Sackville-Baggins is she to whom I was trying to point and obfuscating with in accurate info. :elfembar:

Now it is your turn Peredhil.
Oh Peeeeerreeeedhiiiilllll!!!!! Weeeeerrrrrreeee aaaaareee yooooou????
