Former answers:

#1 No, it is not alive.
#2 Yes it is a place.
#5 Is it in Gondor?

#5 Asking a difficult question again Stony Disturbed Smilie. Every answer I might have given could possibly have been misleading (to my opinion Angel Smilie ). So, try again! I'll give everybody a hint: lands, I mean countries with borders aren't of any use to locate it. Ask relative, not absolute.

I am sorry to disappoint you, Stony ... Got The Blues Smilie Anyway, you got me in a fix, and made it a lot easier to guess for everybody!

C'm on, it's staring in your very face Elf Winking Smilie !
As I do not have a map of ME here with me at work, this is a total guess....is it the Emyn Muiel? (not sure if I spelled that right folks)
(Terrijayne: It starts with S as was posted on 11 December so your question shouldn't count.

(Heorogar: Maybe it would be good to also keep that fact with the rest of the answers.)

#12 The warning Standing Stone which lies between the Dimholt Woods and the Dark Door at Dunharrow?
#12 You're really very, very close now, Grond, ... but still not there ... Very Big Grin Smilie It is not the Standing Stone which lies between the Dimholt Woods and the Dark Door at Dunharrow I'm looking for.

#11 No, it is not the mountain, Starkhorn.

And .. upon request: the original question for Terrijayne:

AGE: Third Age (presumably. This is a hint!)
AREA: Middle-earth
Eyespy with my little eye... something that starts with... S

(Grondy just added #11 to the list.)
#13 The Stair of the Hold upon which we find the statues Pukel-men as we traverse up from the Snowbourn Valley to the Hold at Dunharrow. Those statues are of the ancesters of Ghân-buri-Ghân.
#13 Rolling Eyes Smilie There you go astray, Grond. It is not the Stair of the Hold. But as I said before, you are very close. Remind my hint in the original question!

Okay, I'll, give a few hints:

a. It's three words, the first and last words have already been mentionned in previous answers.
b. It's is located on a mountain.
c. It's connected with the Stair of the Hold.
d. It's close to Stoneway Valley.
e. It is not the Standing Stone, but has some things in common with it. Both the Dimholt and the Dark Door at Dunharrow play an important part in its history.

Common, somebody have a guess ... *please*

Is it the Stone of Erech?
Pary Smilie Bingo! Pary Smilie There we are, finally! The answer is indeed the Stone of Erech.

Here the King of the Mountains swore allegiance to Isildur, but did not fulfil his oath. And here Strider, Isildur's heir, promissed to free the king and his thanes from Isildur's curse, when he'd follow him, Aragorn Elessar, into battle.
The orirgins of the Stone are uncertain. Legend tells Isildur brought it himself to the mouth of the Blackroot Vale after the Downfall of Númenor.

Your turn oloriniwas.



Okay, sorry for the delay.

#1. Is it a living being?
#1 Yes, it is living; and yes it is a being, though not in the ordinary sense like a human being.
#2 - It's not a plant, is it?
#2 Instead of messing about with double negatives: Yes it is of the plant (vegetable) world as opposed to the animal and mineral worlds.
#3 Is it south of the Great East Road?
#3 Yes, it is south of the Great East Road?
4. Does a river run through it?
#4 Yes, I guess we could technically say a river runs through it?
The wording of that answer sends me in a different direction.

#5 Did someone sing to it in FOTR?
#5 Yes, someone did sing to it in FOTR. (lol So then, you no longer think it's the Old Forest?)
LOL. No, I think it's an old thing in the Old Forest, namely Old Man Willow.
