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

Who said: 'I don't need your service, thank you, but I expect you need mine.' Question Smilie
Beorn did.
I thought it was Mad Max who said that.
No, that may have been Max Headroom; though Beorn said it first, so Lord_aragorn86 gets the pretty bauble.

Why did Beorn warn Thorin's Company against drinking from the stream in Mirkwood Question Smilie
Because even though it would grant them eternal youth, it would also turn them blind.

Luckily though, the wisdom of the mighty King Iskander was limitless.
Because it would do strange things to them, put them to sleep or something like that, my copy of the Hobbit is gone so I can't look it up.
Yes FionwŰ Urion, it would put them to sleep which is why they had to carry Bombur for many days after he fell into the stream. So you get another Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What kind of birds drew the ships of the Teleri to the shores of Aman Question Smilie
They were dragged across the sea by 1,000,000 hummingbirds, released by Yavanna herself from her husband AulŰ's bird cage... the couple had a quarrel that day and as AulŰ had commanded his Dwarves to cut down a few forests in the heat of their argument, Yavanna had to pay him back with interest..
Orc Grinning Smilie Close, but no cigar Virumor. Try again.
Swans?
MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Christmas Tree Smilie Standing Up Santa Smilie Christmas Tree Smilie
The one that Rafael use as an AvatarSmile Smilie
Etharion has it and pretty bauble wrapped in red papper with a green and gold ribbon. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was the Dark Elf of Nan Elmoth Question Smilie
Othell÷, that tragic hero who was tricked into strangling his beloved Ar-Feiniel by that sly Iag÷...
Eol?
Yes Etharion, Happy Elf Smilie however you forgot the 24 hour rule so you don't get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Sorry.

King Elessar appointed Pippin to what office Question Smilie
What?? But Grondy, Vir posted before me, didnt you notice? I did..thats why i thought i could post now again...
Member of the council in the north Kingdom
Vir did not try to answer the question correctly, hence Othello and Iago...Hath thou not read the tradgedy of Othello??? Orc Smiling Smilie Only answers that were given to be the right one will be placed under the 24 hour rule......
Correct Mellon, the three appointed counsellors were the Thain (leader of the Tooks), the Master (leader of Buckland), and the Mayor (of the Shire) and at that time they were Pippin, Merry, and Sam respectively. Mellon gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What were the last words written by Ori in the record of Balin's people Question Smilie
"They are coming.."
Yes Mellon, but you should have waited a couple hours. Elf Winking Smilie (12:09 - 10:46 = 1:25)

Which battle revealed the full power of Glaurung to the Elves Question Smilie
Nirnaeth Arnoediad.
Quote:
Yes Mellon, but you should have waited a couple hours

Oops ..I'm so sorry Grondy..when will I ever learn ?
Quote:
Nirnaeth Arnoediad.
No, that is the Battle of Unnumbered Tears, the Fifth Battle of Beleriand and most disastrous of the battles in those wars. I'm looking for the name of an earlier battle.

Don't worry about it Mellon, it's not like we have a whole hoaf* of people complaining that they never get a chance at the question; though when the Hobbit movie comes out and we have many more active members we will have to try to be more equitable.

* Is "hoaf" a real word or have my ears misheard all these years when people have actually said "a whole host"? Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Dagor Bragollach
Well I cannot really see how in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad his full power was not revealed... ?!
Mybe the Battle Of tumhalad but that was after the Nirnaed Arnoediad
I meant first revealed, like once they had been revealed at Dagor Bragollach, the Battle of Sudden Flame, his great size and mighty flame were no longer a revellation by the time of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, the Elves had previously encountered them. They had encountered him even earlier and drove him off because he was not yet full grown and his hide wasn't yet protection from arrows, but it was at Dagor Bragollach where he was in his prime. T˙rin gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.

What mountains lay on the Eastern coast of Valinor Question Smilie
The Pelori ranges. (I think! Maybe not ranges, maybe just "The Pelori?")
Yes 42, the latter; so you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What happened to the Black Riders at the Ford of Bruinen (Rivendale) Question Smilie
They got flowed away by a big wave
yeah mellon, they got a free elf shower... Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Yes they got flushed down the drain; Mellon gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Roll, roll, roll your bolder,
Roughly down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a scream.


List at least five of the seven sons of Feanor; can you name all seven Question Smilie
Maedhros
Caranthir
Curufin
MAglor
Curufin
The Twins
The twins? You mean Elrohir and Elladan? Oh, you mean Amrod and Amras. Correct Thorin, you get the pretty bauble.

What road led from Bree to Rivendell Question Smilie
The Great East Road?
Yes Etharion, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Where did the Great East Road end in the West Question Smilie
In the Grey Havens ?
Little Rock, Arkansas.
Mellon has it and the pretty bauble Happy Elf Smilie

OndolindŰ was the original name of which city Question Smilie
The answer is found in The Silmarillion. Read Smilie
Gondolin?
Yes Etharion, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

How was Grima Wormtongue killed Question Smilie (Book's method and by whom; not PJ's movie version.)
By a hobbit bow, shot in the back as he ran from the spot where he killed Sarumon.
Correct FionwŰ, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who does the following describe Question Smilie
Quote:
'His beard, very long and forked, was white, nearly as white as the snow-white cloth of his garments. He wore a silver belt, and around his neck hung a chain of silver and diamonds.'
