Which hobbit-clan had a reputation for adventurousness even before Bilbo's adventures
What happened to the Arkenstone
How old were Bilbo and Frodo at the long-expected birthday party and when they sailed from the Grey Havens
When they left the Grey havens, Bilbo was 131 and Frodo 53.
What township lay on the other side of Bag End from Hobbiton
(I think the problem may be caused by the recent paperback editions of the LotR, including the movie cover editions, all of which have crummy maps and only a useless thumbnail of The Shire. For a good map of The Shire from the earlier editions see: The Shire. When you get there, click on the map a couple times to enlarge it.)
That is an excellent map, though, pity the books don't have that one in them anymore.
Where did Bilbo discover his sword, which he later named "Sting"
What was Gandalf's sword name, and who was that sword created for?
...since that question is so easy here is a bonus question!
who was Gurthang and who's blood did he feast on last, before his body was broken?
if you wanna answer my Gurthang question for fun don't let me stop you
i'll admit the wording is kinda deceiving, but it does make sense.... it think
What town stood on stilts above the Long Lake
Good job Stonehelm! i tried to word the 2nd question to make it as difficult as possible.
By what Sindarin name were the Misty Mountains also known
AND I HAVE SEVENTEEN PSEUDO-SILMARILS!!!! Haha, now my necklace is a weapon. Get too close, and I BLAST YOUR EYES AND YOU'RE BLINDED FOR LIFE!!!!!! But don't be scared. You see, the pseudo-silmarils I have are fitted with this little light-emitting resistory type thingy. It controls the amount of light. And they have little knobs poking out, real small. So I can just turn down the light. Clever, eh? I made them myself.
Mine cancel yours out, so you have the light of about 2 or 3.
Who called the Dwarves 'Gonnhirrim' and what did it mean
sorry i posted answer, and then read the front page.... hope no one saw it.
What hills lay to the East of Erebor
I knew this one !
Cabbage head!(only kidding)
(sulks in corner)
What great hound was permitted to speak only three times?
And I'm sure seeing as Tolkien probably didn't know how to do them either, he will forgive me.
1) Click the "Start" button
2) Select "Run"
3) Type "charmap" and enter
4) Click the letter you wish to use and click "Select"
5) Click "Copy"
6) Paste the letter where you need it.
7) Retain the minimized Map window in case you need another accented letter.
This can be time consuming, but is good for the occasional letter and it works for everything when you can't use Word.
Now back to the quiz: For the correct answer, Loni gets another shiny-shiny.
What was the last Kingdom of the Noldor to fall to Morgoth's legions
Loni has no Silmarils, for F’anor only made three and they are all accounted for: Maedhros cast himself and the first into the fiery earth; Maglor, before he took off a wandering, threw the second into the watery sea; and E’rendil sails with the third and only remaining one in the airy heavens. What Loni has are a bunch of Pseudo-Silmarils which, while shining with brilliant light, can't hold a candle to the originals.
How did Sam locate Frodo in the Tower of Cirith Ungol
And you're a spoilsport. Am I not allowed to dream that I have silmarils? Besides, I found this silmaril polish from a dwarvish shop, and he assures me that if I polish them they will look just like the real thing!
