Yes, Thorin gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

How many toes did Fangorn have on each foot Question Smilie
The large feet had seven toes each.
Keerect Keonvan; you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie
These awards are ephemeral. Elf Winking Smilie

What gift did Gandalf ask of Th’oden Question Smilie
Hint: He had already returned it after having it as a loaner. Like slap your forehead and say. "Duh!" because everyone knows the answer. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Shadowfax
Sian has it and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

With what chain was Morgoth bound after the War of Wrath Question Smilie
with the chain Angainor. Very Big Grin Smilie
Keonvan has the correct answer and another Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who, in a dream, did Frodo see with the Moon shining in his hair Question Smilie
Gandalf - when he was held as prisoner in Isengard
Correct again Thorin, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

How many hobbits climbed Mount Doom Question Smilie
3? if gollum counts?
He counts according to Gandalf, so Keonvan gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What couldn't Bilbo do any more than fly like a bat Question Smilie
Was it screech like an owl?
That it was Thorin, so you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Where did Frodo get sting Question Smilie
lol Grondy, running out of questions maybe?

Frodo was presented with Sting by Bilbo, in the House of Elrond before setting out on the Journey.
No Fionwe. He got it out of a Wooden beam in Bilbo's room in Rivendell! Orc Grinning Smilie Elk Grinning Smilie
Of course I'm running out of questions; Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie I've been repeating them for some time now. Still I throw in a new softball or zinger every now and then, just to see if anyone is awake. Like "How many siblings did Bilbo have?" or "How many siblings did Frodo have?". Sometimes when I make up a new one, I will forget where I found the answer, and that causes me a lot of extra work reverifing it all over again. Elf Rolling Eyes Smilie

Anyway, the answer was correct and Fionw’ gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who is buried under Mt. Erebor in Thorin's Tomb Question Smilie
Hint: This is another trick question; you have to be specific.
Fili and Kili as well as Orcrist?
Correct so far Thorin; and what was the name of the main character that was interred with them?
Thorin II Oakenshield with the Arkenstone of Thrain?
Now you have it Thorin, and the pretty bauble too. Happy Elf Smilie

Name four inns/taverns in the Shire Question Smilie (And we all remember that Bree isn't in the Shire.)
The Golden Perch, The Forsaken inn, The Green Dragon, and The Ivy Bush.

Though i doubt if the Forsaken Inn is in the Shire
Thorin is correct about The Forsaken inn not being in the Shire; it's one day's (as the pudgy hobbit walks) east of Bree. In fact, it is the eastern most Inn on the Great East Road. Thorin is also correct with the names of the other three inns. Now we just need the name of the fourth inn.

Hint: It is located in Frogmorton.
Is it the Bridge Inn precious?
Well, I was thinking about the Floating Log Inn in Frogmorton, but the Bridge Inn located at the west end of the Brandywine Bridge also counts, so Thorin gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie I had forgotten about the Bridge Inn which was torn down during Lotho's reign and that's all we've ever heard of it.

Who always acted as look-out for Thorin's Company Question Smilie

I don't remember hearing about the Floating Log Inn of Frogmorton. In which Chapter is it?

Is the answer Balin?
Yes, the answer was Balin, so Thorin get another pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Frogmorton (located 22 miles west of the Brandywine Bridge) and its inn are found about four pages into "The Scouring of the Shire" of 'RotK'.

Whose lullaby, said Bilbo, 'would waken a drunken goblin' Question Smilie
Bilbo said that to the Elves who were singing next to his room when he reached Rivendell for the second time, after the fall of Smaug, if i'm not wrong.
No, Thorin wasn't wrong. Yes he had the correct answer and thusly, the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who said, 'I have it! Of course, of course! Absurdly simple, like most riddles when you see the answer.' Question Smilie
Did Bilbo say that to Gollum?
it would be gandalf at the gates of moria Smile Smilie
Arath has the answer and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What sort of trees flanked the West-door of Moria Question Smilie
Hollin trees, ancient and beautiful.
Correct Fionw’, you get another Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was the greatest of all the Dwarven smiths Question Smilie
Telchar was it?
Yes it was, Thorin gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Which river joined the Anduin between the falls of Rauros and Cair Andros Question Smilie
I'll guess the Entwash.
Your guess was good, Thorin, so you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What great hound was permitted to speak only three times Question Smilie
Huon! not sure of the spelling but he was the companion and helper of Beren and Luthien.
Yes, he was their pup-dog Dog Smilie and his name is spelled Huan, so Sian gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What did Denethor hold in his hands as he died on the funeral pyre Question Smilie
He held one of the Palantir

Thank you Grondy that was my 33rd Pseudo Happy Elf Smilie Happy Elf Smilie Happy Elf Smilie
