That would be the palantir of minas tirith.
Yes, Turin gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was unique about the Uruk-hai compared to the common Orc Question Smilie
Oooh! Weren't they stronger, faster, and all around better fighters, plus they didn't feel pain or fear?
Yes, but there was something even more unique about them that they told Aragorn at Helms Deep.
They could function well under the sun. I think what they say is along the lines of "We are Uruk-hai, we fight at day or night. What do we care for the dawn?"
Yes Turin, the Uruk-hai didn't cower under the sun like normal Orcs and Gollum. You get the Pseuco-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who unwittingly sent Gandalf to imprisonment in Orthanc Question Smilie
Radagast.
Correct again Turin: the pretty bauble to you. Happy Elf Smilie

Who sang: Question Smilie
'The dragon is withered,
His bones are now crumbled;
His armour is shivered.
His splendour is humbled!'
Sounds like the elves of rivendell on Bilbo's return journey.
That's right Thorin; you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Why could not Barad-dr be destroyed entirely at the end of the Second Age Question Smilie
Because its foundations were made by the power of the ring, and while it remained, so did everything it created.
Correct again Thorin, the Pseudo-Silmaril is yours. Happy Elf Smilie

Who said: 'Lovely titles! But lucky numbers don't always come off.' Question Smilie
Smaug to Bilbo.
Quote:
Correct again Thorin, the Pseudo-Silmaril is yours


It is Turin who got the answer Grondy! Elk Grinning Smilie
Dag-nab-it! I have been double-checking because I have been catching myself making that error this month; I must have missed that one sorry Turin.

Okay then, Turin gets two pretty baubles: one for his previous answer and another for the answer to my last question. Happy Elf Smilie

Thorin gets to keep the one I gave him, that's as a reward for catching my mistake. Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie

What was the Elvenking wearing on his head when Bilbo first saw him Question Smilie
A crown of leaves?
Yes Turin, a crown of berries and red leaves because it was Autumn; you get the Pseudo-Silmaril.

How did the Vanyar and Noldor cross from Beleriand into Aman Question Smilie
I believe Ulmo made Osse tear off a chunk of land and float it to Aman.
I think Ulmo did the tearing of the land to make that floating Island; still, Turin gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Who was the Dark Elf of Nan Elmoth Question Smilie
Eol ?
You got it Golden_red; and also the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

After corresponding with a real Sam Gamgee, from whom did Tolkien fear receiving a letter Question Smilie
Take a wild guess at just their last name. Happy Elf Smilie
A Lawyer!!! Though I'm tempted to say a sackville-Baggins! Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
No, it was S. Gollum Elf Rolling Eyes Smilie

What was Pippin's full name and what was his father's first name Question Smilie
Wasn't his name like Peregrine Took or something. Can't remember his father's....
Peregrin Took, son of Paladin?
Gwindor has it and the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What valley lay outside the Great Gates of Khazad-dm Question Smilie
Azanulbizar?
In the Dwarvish yes, also called Nanduhirion in Sindarin and the Dimrill Dale in Westron. Thorin gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What color was Dragon blood Question Smilie
Purple, Green, blue, red, yellow, black!!! Not really, I'll guess purple?
Not purple nor the primary colors or pigments, which means...
Probably black then
Quite probably. Gwindor gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What oath did Fanor and his sons swear on the summit of Tna Question Smilie
Answer to Fanor's above oath: 'To pursue to the ends of the World any being or creature that withheld a Silmaril from them.' I guess this was too much a softball for those without having the book. Orc Grinning Smilie

In what language did 'Nazgul' mean 'Ringwraith' Question Smilie
The Black Speech I think.

Actually, Feanor's oath was more ' to pursue any Vala, Demon, Elf, Dwarf, or Man unborn, creature and any living thing.'
That's without the book, but I wanted to give someone else the opportunity and not hog the threads.
Yes it was the Black Speech, so Gwindor gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

List the three Elven Rings Question Smilie
Narya, Nenya, Vilya
Yup: Winkin', Blinkin', and Nod; so Thinker gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Vilya?
Yuppers, Thinker gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

The River Running flowed into what body of water Question Smilie
to sea of Rhun
Correct again Thinker, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Ondolind was the original name of which city Question Smilie
Sounds like Gondolin - rocky and music I think
That's it Gwindor, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who forged Narsil and Angrist Question Smilie
Telchar of Nogrod, who else?
Correct again Gwindor another pretty bauble for you. Happy Elf Smilie

How were the Teleri mainly armed at the Kinslaying Question Smilie
With bows and arrows.
Keerect Thorin, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Who does the following describe, 'The face of _______ was ageless, neither old nor young, though in it was written the memory of many things both glad and sorrowful.' Question Smilie
Elrond, unless I'm much mistook
Gwindor isn't Miss Took; therefore he gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

Why did the Elves call Men the Engwar Question Smilie
