Seven toes on each foot.
How do you like my avatar?
Thanks Amarie!
Nice avatar: An elven ranger out hunting; who's the horse in the background? Reminds me of my desktop wallpaper: 'Tuor' by Eiszmanncan you see the two cloaked elves hiding behind the central tree?

Anyway, Fionw Urion has the correct answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the capitol of Rohan Question Smilie
Edoras? The only other place names in Rohan that I know are Helm's Deep and Aldburg - and they don't seem very "capitalish" to me.
I don't recognize Aldburg unless it is another name for Dunharrow, but Edoras is the correct answer, so Mungo gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Why was Nmenor remembered as Mar-nu-Falmar Question Smilie
It was called that after it's destruction. it means 'home under the waves'
The horse in the background is his own, I'll try and find its name.
Lemaly Orangeflower has the correct answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was the Lady of the Stars Question Smilie
Varda?
We need one of those differentiation pages, since Elenwe wife of Turgon seems like she should qualify as well. As a title both Elenwe and Elentri could translate thus, but I'm sure you're right. ;-p
Varda was what I wanted, so Etharion gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Which famous hobbit compiled the 'Herblore of the Shire', the 'Reckoning of Years' and the treatise 'Old Words and Names in the Shire' Question Smilie
Hurm. I'll say Merry.
You get the Pseudo-Silmaril, Morambar. Happy Elf Smilie

Where was Bilbo heading when he passed the Old Took's record for longevity Question Smilie
Yea! Score another one for 50/50 gambles! Thanks, I'm PMing you a question about clarifying the new one.
Mithlond, the Gray Havens.
Fionw Urion has the answer I wanted, though as Morambar PMed, he was ultimately on the way to Valinor. Anyway, Fionw Urion gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

How many fir trees were inhabited by fifteen birds, as heard by Bilbo in a song Question Smilie
That would be five firtrees. Thank goodness for the eagles.
You're welcome, Fionw!

Well, Elenw translates to star maiden and Elentri means star queen, or Queen of the Stars. So Elenw does not fit the title. Both Queen of the Stars and Lady of the Stars are titles are used on Varda.
Another pretty bauble to Mungo for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie

What officials acted as the police in the Shire Question Smilie
The Shirriffs. Elk Grinning Smilie
Fionw Urion gets the Pseudo-Silmaril for the correct answer, which he spelled correctly too. Happy Elf Smilie

Who always acted as look-out for Thorin's Company Question Smilie
I think that was Bilbo ..the hobbitSmile Smiliebut later he was replaced by two of the dwarf.s because he always got them into troubble ( Their names in norwegian are :Kili and Fili .Im not sure if thats their proper name in english)
He could also be thinking of Balin as Thorin's look-out man:

Quote:
"He crept still nearer, and suddenly he saw peering between two big boulders a head with a red hood on: it was Balin doing look-out."
Balin is who I was after, so Mungo gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What sort of trees flanked the West-door of Moria Question Smilie
those would be holly trees
Correct Lemaly Orangeflower, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was the greatest of all the Dwarf smiths Question Smilie
Telchar was one of the greatest, that's all I know.
He is who I was looking for; Virumor gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What mountain range marked the Western boundary of Mordor Question Smilie
I think that's the Shadow Mountains. I'm not sure, I am probably wrong. My copy of "The Return of the King" is missing.Very Sad Smilie
Yes or it's other name Ephel Dath (you know everytime i look on this thread another person has already answered it so i cant get a word in??)
Fionw Urion gets the pretty buable for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie
Loss gets an honorable mention. Elf Winking Smilie

Sam and Rosie's first child was named after what flower of Lothlrien Question Smilie
That would be Elanor. Elanor the fair born in 1421.
Darn it, its happened again, someone answered it before i could have a go Sad Smilie, is it the time difference? do i get up too early or too late??? Orc Grinning Smilie
You got it Mungo, and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who married Melian the Maia Question Smilie
Elw Singollo.
Another pretty bauble to Virumor. Happy Elf Smilie

What false name did Frodo adopt when he set out for Rivendell Question Smilie
Mr Underhill ? Is that whats you are looking for ?

Losse, you're not the only one.

Yes Mellon, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Yes Lemaly Orangeflower, and those people were Elves; you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What were Gandalf's last words to Sam, Merry, and Pippin at the Grey Havens Question Smilie
" Well , Dear friends .Here at the end of times we finally come to the end of our fellowship. "Go in Peace ! " I wont say , dont cry ,because all thears are not evil tears "
( Im not sure if thats the rigth spelling Grondy ,but I hope this is what you meant Smile Smilie
Close enough Mellon, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Where did Strider and the hobbits sleep in 'The Prancing Pony' Question Smilie
Well they intended to sleep in the hobbit rooms, on ground floor.
Yes, that had been their intention, but where did they actually sleep that night?
IIRC they slept next door, but I may be confusing them with a similar incident involving Perrin and Faile.
i thought they slept in one of the rooms meant for men but i dont know i relly need to read lotr again
Hint: The answer is in the Book One chapter entitled 'Strider'. Teacher Smilie
Ah yes! I remember now. Aragorn told them that it was unsafe to stay in the hobbit rooms, cause the windows were so close to the ground(and he was right), so they all spent the night in the parlour, the room where they ate and stuff at theyr arrival. Its a bit down the hall from the Common Room.
Congrats; sounds good to me (you know I never do look ups; takes all the fun out of it.) That also rings a bell, but, poor Hobbits, all they got was each other and a crusted over Ranger instead of Moiraine fresh from the bath in a robe running a brush through her long dark hair. *sighs wistfully.*

And on that note....
