Those are them Ar-Edain; you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

What was the name of Tom Bombadil Question Smilie

Would that be Middle-earth hiding under that stone or just you, Ar-Edain? Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Well I've come up with several things...so here goes

Spoken by Elrond:
"Iarwain Ben-adar we called him, oldest and fatherless. But many another name he has since been given by other folk:Forn by the Dwarves, Orald by Northern Men, and other names beside."

Also Goldberry says "He is the Master of wood, water, and hill."

That just about says it all Yevgenia, you get the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

The "pretty bauble" is a euphemism for my Pseudo-Silmaril which due to a flaw in the manufacturing process, vaporize within a few moments of being awarded. Sorry, but you will just have to accept the glory of the occasion, for Fëanor never left us his recipe for the making of a single Silmaril.

A funny thing about the previous question: I meant to ask the name of Tom's pony, which was Fatty Lumpkin; however I must have nodded off before I ever finished writing it. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

Isengard was destroyed by whom Question Smilie
Treebeard and the Ents
You got it Gwindor, and the Pseudo-Silmaril to boot. Happy Elf Smilie

Who were the Helmingas Question Smilie
The people of Erkenbrand?
Yup, the Rohirrim, so Thorin gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

When the Elves awoke, Melkor sought to make them fearful of which particular Vala Question Smilie
Orome (I don't know how to put 2dots over the e).

Orome was the first of the Valar to discover the awakening of the firstborn children of Iluvatar.

Yevgenia
Correct again Yevgenia; you get another Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

Where was the chief dwelling area of the Faithful in their latter days on Númenor :question

To make the two dots over the e (ë) with out going to your Character Map via Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools, hold the Alt key down while pressing 0235 and then release it. Teacher Smilie
Romenna, originally Andunie, but they weren't allowed there anymore.
Keerect Gwindor, on both counts, except they may have been allowed, but I think they couldn't stomach the hypocrisy at court; so they got as far away from it as they could in order to respect the Valar, who now that Sauron had the ear of the King, were no longer held in esteem. Anyway, Gwindor gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

What gift did Boromir receive from the Lady Galadriel Question Smilie
a golden belt similar to ones given to merry and pippin
Golden_red has it right with the belt, except Merry and Pippin's were silver with a golden flower clasp. Still I guess they may have been similar in style, just not material. None of which makes the slightest difference, for the answer was correct and Golden_red gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie

You got it Gwindor and the Pseudo-Silmaril to boot. Happy Elf Smilie

Name four inns/taverns in the Shire Question Smilie
