While Robbin' wood knew the name, his answer left a little something to be desired; and though Gildor inglorion's answer was the most correct, it came in later than Adreia's, which had enough info to win the Pseudo-Silmaril.
What was the last sign of Frodo that Sam, Merry, and Pippin saw as he sailed away into the West?
lol. I get up at half past 5 every morning for school.
I shall die. I SHALL DIE. I would just be like.... well, a lot less lazy, I suppose. I pity you. I get up at half past seven. Most people at my school get up at like... half past six, but they're just slowpokes. I can get ready in quarter of an hour, and ten minutes if I push it. But I'm only physically lazy. I'm academically like... WORK WORK WORK and musically too, so that's my excuse. And I'm sticking to it. (Haha, it doesn't hold up much with my mates )
And I never remembered Frodo holding up the Phial. I shall read that bit again. Becasue this is not Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, or something more obscure, this is LOTR. I should know this.
What city stood in the Calacirya, the Pass of Light
Can you name the three strains of hobbits
When I was a civil servent, we were all very conscientious, for we did not choose to loose a submarine because we were too lazy to do the job right the first time, and there were no second chances.)
GRONDY WAS A CIVIL SERVANT? They're SOOO cool. We don't got none in NZ. Well, I only think they're cool cause they dress up in suits and look poncy and they're in 'Yes, Minister' and 'Yes, Prime Minister' of which whatsisface, SIr Humphrey Appleby (I almost said Carpenter) is my FAVOURITEST character. Cause he's all crooked. Especially the episode when he got told off by a feminist for calling her 'dear lady.' But they're probably real boring and such. Except Grondy. He's cool, cause he's got over 9,000 posts. Does no one else think that's cool? (And no wonder he's a blue meanie!!)
Technically you are correct Loni, though if you were to answer that way, you might only recieve an . Also over here, anyone who works directly for the gummint in a non-military and non-diplomatic position is a deemed civil servant. This also rules out our politicians who are supposed to work for the people, but often work against them.

Who said, 'If I was after the Ring, I could have it ’ NOW!'
who was Theodens standard bearer in the Battle of the Pellenor Fields, and what was ironinc about his name?
can i post a question PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!
You can have the honour in the "Tolkien Quiz" thread which is in the Ivy Bush tavern. In this thread, only Grondy asketh!
As for you question, is the answer, "He who must not be named" since that would make his name ironic too?
What sort of trees flanked the West-door of Moria
Tauro: Theoden's banner bearer at the Battle of Pelennor Fields was Guthl’f. I do not know what was ironic about his name, but I assume it must have something to to do with his name's translation, of which I could hazard a guess though I know only English. Does his name mean "good life" and he was found "dead" just before Theoden uttered his final words?
As Lord_aragorn86 said above, I provide the questions in this thread; however, please feel free to take turns answering and giving Tolkien Trivia questions in our Tolkien Quiz.
Apologies for posting any way
