You got it Loss and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was famous for growing mushrooms Question Smilie
Hmmm... Farmer Maggot, maybe?
He's the one Aldaradan, so you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of Merry's pony?
Yes Mellon
Yup, Mellon gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was the Orc chieftain at the Battle of Azanulbizar Question Smilie
Azog the orc cheiftain of Moria.
Turgon gets the pretty bauble for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie

What did the Elves call Saruman and what did it mean Question Smilie
They named him CurunÝr and I think it meant something like: He who had devious talents
Yep, Curunir, but I think it might mean 'Man of Skill'.
Mellon and Aldaradan get to share the Pseudo-Silmaril for they each had half of the answer. Happy Elf Smilie

Who sang:
"Farewell sweet earth and northern sky,
for ever blest, since here did lie
and here with lissom limbs did run
beneath the Moon, beneath the Sun..."

Question Smilie
Huh! That's a real puzzler. I want to say Turin, but it's not him.
Luthien Tinuviel If I got this right someone else ask another question because i'm going on holiday. wooooo
Golden_red got the correct answer; Happy Elf Smilie and luckily she knows that she gets the pretty bauble and I post the next question.

Tolkien-wise, what happened on 03 August 1954 Question Smilie
Hint: Something was first published on that date.
The Silmarillion was published if I'm not off on my dates, which I probably am. I always am.
I'm going to say The Fellowship of the Ring, as The Sil wasn't published until 1977, edited by C. Tolkien...
the second part of the two towers was published.
Loss has it with the publication of The Fellowship of the Ring, so he gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie Note: I doubt if it happened on the third day, that '03' got in the question via operator error - mine.

Who built Barad Nimras and where Question Smilie
Finrod Felagund built it to watch out Morgoth, ah, it was to watch over the western seas, can't remember a specific name for where it was built....
It was tower built by Finrod Felagund on a headland westward of Eglarest. Its purpose was to watch the western seas, and warn of any naval attack by Morgoth's forces
42 and Turgon get to share the pretty bauble this time. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of Farmer Giles' favorite cow* Question Smilie

*Ha ha, you thought I was going to ask for his dog's name, didn't you? Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Galathea. Cow Sleeping Smilie The dog is Garm, I think.
I DID read it as dog, you got me Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie

But the cow was called Ermintrude.......

Who loves The Magic Roundabout?!!!

*Looks for any high fives from anyone.....*
Aldaradan has the correct answer and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who first said, 'You may triumph on the fields of the Pelennor for a day, but against the Power that has now arisen there is no victory. Question Smilie
This is probably wrong, and may embarrass me, but I will guess Elrond.
No need to feel embarrassed unless one looks up the answer and later finds out their source was wrong. Guessing is allowed as is looking in the books; though googling for the answers is frowned upon. Still, only the googler will know what they've done.

Oh, and by the way, it wasn't Elrond, Elf Winking Smilie so try again.
Denethor, son of Ecthelion. I think 26th Steward of Gondor.
Yes, Denethor's words were repeated by Gandalf during 'The Last Debate' as they were deciding whether to hunker down and wait for another attack against Minas Tirith, whose gates were smashed, or take their forces to the Black Gate and challenge Sauron in order to buy time for Frodo and to keep Sauron's Eye on them instead of watching for Frodo. FionwŰ gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What was Mirkwood's former name Question Smilie
Greenwood the Great?
I love you. And by love, I mean toleration. Have some warped vinyls before you go. Don't forget to burn something for Hurricane Three. Tah-tah!
Aldaradan has it and the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Whose ship was called Alcarondas Question Smilie
That sounds like some kind of Mexican word.
Ar-Pharaz˘n. It was the ship that he sailed in to Valinor.
Yes it does FionwŰ, and yes you have the correct answer and thus the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Beside which lake did the Elves awake Question Smilie
Hint: Chapter Three of The Silmarillion.
I think its Cuiniven, or something like that, in the far east.
Lake Nenuial i think.
Well it wasn't Nenuial ,to that is the source of the Brandywine to the north of the Shire. The answer is Lake CuiviÚnen, which was located to the east of the River Anduin and Mirkwood. I will assume that is what Aldaradan was trying to spell without the aid of the book; so he gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

How did Gandalf react when Pippin dropped a stone down a well in Moria Question Smilie
Fool of a Took! (If that's only in the movie, I apologize. Nonetheless, it is applicable.)
"Throw yourself in next time and rid us of your stupidity!"
Ar-edain37 has the key word "fool" and the pretty bauble. Gandalf chided Pippin for his foolishness and added to it, FinwŰ's above admonishment.

Why was the Sirannon only a trickle when the Fellowship came to Khzad-dűm Question Smilie
That was due to a dam that was outside the West Gate to Moria, forming a lake in which resided the Great Squid, the Watcher.

BTW, where is there a FinwŰ on the page? jk
In stead of cutting and pasting, I just let my fingers do the walking and they stumbled over FionwŰ's name Elf With a Big Grin Smilie even if my head knew how to spell it; regardless, he gets the Pseudo-Silmaril this time for the correct answer. Happy Elf Smilie

What color was Glaurung's dragon blood Question Smilie
My apologies for the above post of my own. I have corrected the spelling error which resulted in a cuss-word. Sorry.
Apology accepted FionwŰ, though my cuss-word filter missed it, so it must not have been very glaring.

Sian gets the pretty bauble for her answer. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the Quenya name for the Ring of Doom, where the Valar held council Question Smilie
Hint: It is an M-word. Elf Winking Smilie
Mßhanaxar I had to look it up though ; I've never heard this word before..Don't know the Sil to good but I'm still learning.
Now you have heard of it , but if you are like me you won't remember it, for it has no other useage that I know of. Anyway, Mellon gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who fled from the Nazgűl at the house at Crickhollow Question Smilie
