Ursula LeGuin wrote a few of her books without color and the descriptions were so drab that I couldn't finish them, so I appreciate a little color when I'm reading.

Why was N˙menor remembered as Mar-nu-Falmar Question Smilie
Mar-nu-Falmar ---> Home under the waves. After sailing openly against Valar, trusting the words of Sauron, Ar-Pharaz˘n the Golden and his whole army was swallowed by the water. But they were not the only victims of the wrath of the Valar. The land of Numenor was destroyed by the water as well. So once the beautiful and rich island of the Earth was now the Home under the waves.
Vampyr gets the Pseudo-Silmaril for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie


What were collected in the Wells of Varda Question Smilie
Varda collected the dews of the Two trees in her wells, after the trees were destroyed by Ungoliant and Morgoth.
Yes Ashkael, the dews of the two trees were collected in the Wells of Varda; however, this was done before Ungoliant attacked the trees. She sucked both them and the wells dry. It was a 'Bad Day in Black Rock', all that could be salvaged were one flower and one fruitm, from which the sun and moon were made. You get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie As you're new I'll repeat my rule of courtesy: When you get an answer right, please wait 24 hours after I post the next question, prior to answering it; this way others can have a chance at it.

The Bridge Inn at the Brandywine Bridge
The Floating Log at Frogmorton
The Golden Perch at Stock
The Green Dragon at Bywater

What you expect me to waste my time building a data base or spreadsheet keeping track of how many jewels I've awarded to whom? There are only 174 pages with 1815 posts to wade through looking for them. The only reason I know how many Loni has, is because she keeps reminding us. Elf Winking Smilie You want to know, you do the looking. Thank you very much, but I have a life. Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

What was the Nauglamir, and who did the Dwarves make it for Question Smilie
In the first age of the sun, the Nauglamir was made for King Finrod Felagund.


and it was a collar mad out of beautiful stones and pearls, is it not? Wink Smilie
Okay, THINGOL77 gets credit for what it was and Frodo_baggins for he whom it was made. They can share the Pseudo-Silmaril, for I don't want multiple bauble handouts to become standard practice. Happy Elf Smilie

Per the index of The Silmarillion
Quote:
Nauglamir: 'The Necklace of the Dwarves', made for Finrod Felagund by the Dwarves, brought by H˙rin out of Nargothrond to Thingol, and the cause of his death.
Also from 'Of the Return of the Noldor' in the same book:
Quote:
... the Nauglamir, the Necklace of the Dwarves, most renowned of their works in the Elder Days. It was a carcanet of gold, and set therein were gems uncounted from Valinor; but it had a power within it so that it rested lightly on its wearer as a strand of flax, and whatsoever neck it clasped it sat always with grace and loveliness.
Finrod Felagund, as you remember, was the oldest brother of Galadriel.

And carcanet: "an ornamental collar, band, or necklace, usually of gold and often jeweled." (I had to look it up.) Teacher Smilie


Can you name the large expanse of water in Southern Mordor Question Smilie

What false name did Frodo adopt when he set out for Rivendell Question Smilie

( I apologize for not keeping up with this thread daily, I've had a slight set back with my foot surgery: one of the three incisions isn't healing correctly and the antibiotic is making me not want to spend much time at the computer. Sorry.)
Underhill.

What were Gandalf's last words to Sam, Merry, and Pippin at the Grey Havens Question Smilie
Quote : 'Yes,' said Gandalf; 'for it will be better to ride back three together 'than one alone. Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea comes the end of our fellowship in Middle-earth. Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.'
Virumor has the answer and gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie


What wall encircled the Pelennor Fields Question Smilie
Rammas Echor.
Virumor has the correct answer, but he violated our 24 hour rule, so in addition to the Pseudo-Silmaril he gets 20 lashes with the wet orc tongue. Elf Rolling Eyes Smilie
