Who built Barad Nimras and where
When I saw Aulë's "Melkor" his other guesses had been removed and I just figured Perwing was quoting the source out of niceness and because he had bothered to look it up. I usually double check the answers by looking for the source in case I am ever challenged I can at least back it up rather than use the lame "That's what it says in my quiz book."
To preclude people taking advantage of the system by wrongly guessing and later when someone else provides the correct answer, going back and revising the earlier post with the correct answer, I will have to make a new rule"
New Trivia Rule: Revised trivia answers will not count; if you make a mistake, you may edit you old post to say so, but you must make a new unedited post with the correct answer for it to count.

Where did Orcs and Elves fight the first battle of the Wars of Bereriand
What food did the Men of Esgaroth make for long journeys
What is a thangail
The food was mostly in the form of very thin cakes, made of a meal that was baked a light brown on the outside, and on the inside was the colour of cream. Gimli took up one of the cakes and looked at it with a doubtful eye.
'Cram,' he said under his breath, as he broke off a crisp corner and nibbled at it. His expression quickly changed, and he ate all the rest of the cake with relish.
'No more, no more!' cried the Elves laughing. 'You have eaten enough already for a long day's march.'
'I thought it was only a kind of cram, such as the Dalemen make for journeys in the wild,' said the Dwarf.
'So it is,' they answered, 'But we call it lembas or waybread, and it is more strengthening than any food made by man, and it is more pleasant than cram, by all accounts.'
'Indeed it is,' said Gimli. 'Why, it is better than the honey-cakes of the Beornings, and that is great praise, for the Beornings are the best bakers that I know of; but they are none too willing to deal out their cakes to travelers in these days. You are kindly hosts!'
