Snaga is correct Gnampie, so you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie


What happened to the Orcs that survived the First Battle Question Smilie
Clarification: What happened to those Orcs who fled north after the great slaughter of the First Battle Question Smilie
That's what I was looking for, Perwing. Almost all of them were slain by the Dwarves of Mount Dolmed, so you get the pretty, pretty. Happy Elf Smilie


Where were hobbits said to have lived before they settled in The Shire Question Smilie
In the upper vales of the Anduin, between Greenwood and the Misty Mountains.
That's the place Samwisegamgee; the Pseudo-Silmaril is yours. Happy Elf Smilie



'An eye in a green face.' What is itQuestion Smilie

(Hint: flora)
Treebeard?
Okay Perwing, I'll give the Pseudo-Silmaril to you, for you have the right riddle and the key word. The actual line means 'a daisy on the grass', which you couldn't see unless the "eye in the blue face" the Sun, was shining on the daisies.

Who married Goldilocks Question Smilie

Faramir Took
Yup, Sam's daughter married Pippin's son in 1463 S.R., while Sam was serving his sixth term as Mayor of the Shire. So Peredhil gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie


Who wrote to his father, saying that The Hobbit was 'good and should appeal to all children between the ages of 5 and 9' Question Smilie
Rayner Unwin did.
Amari has the correct answer and another Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie I remember seeing him tell the story on one of the movie documentaries on TV. It is probably also on one of the LotR: FotR DVDs too.

What was the name of the great feast-hall in the capital of Rohan Question Smilie
That's the name, Perwing gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie


What name was Gabilgathol better known as Question Smilie
Okay Perwing, except cigars can cause cancer of the lungs if you smoke them and of the mouth if you chew them. But if you just use it as a trophy or as a pointer, You can have one next time, though you may need to remind me.
Correct Ringfacwen, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie


In the High-elven tongue, what were the Balrogs known as Question Smilie
Valarrauko

Where was the first 'western' encampment of men not Beleriand)
Hello, a newbie (sorry if you're not, but you're new to me Findekano) with a trivia question. Waving Hello Smilie

And it's a tough one to which I don't know the answer! Big Laugh Smilie
Would that be behind the misty mountains, in Eriador?
Thanks for the Welcome Tommy!

The answer you gave is incorrect Tauron.
is it maybe the vale of the Anduin... the humans with the dark elves
Estolad

(However Findekano, I am a tad bit confused with the question's wording; like what does "not Beleriand" imply? That it isn't the answer or something else?) Happy Elf Smilie


What crop was Farmer Maggot famous for Question Smilie
Grond-By 'not Beleriand' I mean it was not in Beleriand, therfore the answer you have citied, 'Estolad' is incorrect since it was Amrod's alnd in Belriand to the South-East of Doriath. Sorry if i was unclear on the Beleriand thing. the answer to your question is Mushrooms btw.

Tauron youre answer is wrong too. Sorry. Smile Smilie
Grondi you ask for crop yeah? crop is the same as corn or I am wrong ? So corn is never mushroom Or??

I was thinking of *oats* but Ihave no Idea at all.

@Findekano I think your question is very dificult, do you mean with first the time yes? Sorry I only want to ask ;-)
[QUOTE]Where was the first 'western' encampment of men (not Beleriand)[/QUOTE]

Maybe I should re-phrase this question:

"Men had afew major encampments before entering Beleriand. Can you name the first know one?
Hildorien doesn't count does it?
Is it Ossiriand... If this isn't it I really dont't know any more.
My mistake Big Laugh Smilie Big Laugh Smilie

That was mushrooms indeed, but Findekano beat me to it.

Quote:

I thought I might be able to find it with the help of my Robert Foster's. So let's see, it's not Estolad - I'd be surprised if it is Hildorien, because that's where they awoke, but yes of course that could be it too... - Tauron, if you mean Ossiriand, no that's in Beleriand too I'm afraid, and if you do mean Ossiland, then I don't know what you mean, because I don't know Ossiland. Tongue Smilie Hrmm.

Still checking: it says under "Dunadain" that they sailed to Numenor in the second age, but after the fall of Numenor they founded Arnor and Gondor (and that's ME already, so that's not going back far enough.
Under "Variags" it says: race of men who lived in Khand, which is a realm south-east of Mordor, so again not far back enough...

The Haladin entered Beleriand blablabla... The Men of Numenor (I've had those before), the Men of... I DON'T KNOW. Ok. I give up. lol Big Laugh Smilie

I'll guess Hildorien along with Peredhil. But he was first (of course). Animated Wink Smilie
Peredhil's "Hildorien" is the best I can come up with using the Silmarillion. If it is further narrowed down in one of the HOME books, it is beyond the scope of my knowledge.

Mushrooms is right so Findekano gets the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie
Hildorien is incoorrect. It is in HoMe. I will give my question another day if no one guesses correctly I will post a new one.
Meanwhile:


Who was Frodo delighted to find in the Hall of Fire Question Smilie
A deep in thought (or so he says) Bilbo.
Thanks for your question and answer Findekano, sorry we couldn't answer it. Happy Elf Smilie You get a Pseudo-Silmaril for the correct odd man out.

However, I will have to ask the person who correctly answers the last question to let the next question be up for 24 hours before you answer it so that other people who are asleep when I post the questions have a chance at them. Were I to post more than one question a day, I might run out of them or at least have to dig deeper to come up with new ones.

Anyway, after anyone correctly answers a question, please let the next one remain unanswered for 24 hours before answering it. That way no one will be hogging the action. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

Still, you may add your own new question if you know you have answered the last one correctly. Cool Elf Smilie

Thanks


Who granted Saruman the key to the tower of Orthanc Question Smilie
Keereckt again Findekano, so you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie Also, you may as well give us the answer to where the first men encamped in the west. Elf Confused Smilie


Which is the 'Odd Man Out': Uglk, The Witch-King of Angmar, Shagrat, 'The Mouth of Sauron', or Gorbag Question Smilie
The answer is the 'Inland Sea of Rhun' (Of Dwarves and Men; HoME 12)
Ugluk served Saruman the others served Sauron.
I think it was Quickbeam the young Ent? One off the Ents surly....
Bey then
Wasn't that Fagorn or Treebeard?
No, Treebeard didn't receive the key to Orthanc from Saruman until a couple hundred years later, when Saruman and Wormtongue were set free from their captivity in the tower after Sauron and Barad-dur had been destroyed and King Elessar had been crowned and married.
Beren the 19th ruling steward gave him the keys to Orthanc. I belive his father Eglamoth was still steward when Beren gave him the keys in T.A 2759 T.A.

Where was Theoden born?
Quote:
In the High-elven tongue, what were the Balrogs known as?


Ok this one's from a while ago, but no one has answered it yet, so I'll go for it. Valaraukar, singular Valarauko.

And I'm guessing king Theoden would have been born in the Hall of Meduseld, and if not probably somewhere in Rohan. Big Smile Smilie I'm not sure though.
Tom, I already answered the Balrog question, in my first post.

Your answer to the Theoden question is wrong, BTW.
Ok Grond I misunderstood the question..
Theoden was born (T.A. 2948) in Gondor, as were his first two sisters, possibly in Lossarnach, the home of Morwen his mother, or more probable in Minas Tirith where Thengel his father was stationed, when he served Turgon the Steward of Gondor until Thengel was recalled to Rohan to become King in T.A. 2953. Teacher Smilie Of course I may be wrong. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

And yes, Findekano did have the correct Balrog answer, however, I may have been remiss in saying so and awarding the pretty bauble which went to him as does another for his Beren the Steward answer. Happy Elf Smilie

Can you describe Frodo's orc-helm Question Smilie


Easy Grondy!! OrkishTongue Smilie hahahahhaa
Nah but seriously I cant seem to remember....thats why I am re-reading itWink Smilie

Disturbed Smilie Terribly sorry Findekano, I must have missed it. Teach me and my quick reading a lesson! Animated Wink Smilie

Quote:
Can you describe Frodo's orc-helm?


Yes I can, if I could find my copy of LOTR... Animated Wink Smilie OK here we go:

Teacher Smilie It was a "black cap with iron rim, and iron hoops covered with leather upon which the evil Eye was painted in red above the beaklike nose-guard." Cool Smilie
Tommie gets the Pseudo-Silmaril for her description, or rather Tolkien's. Happy Elf Smilie


Who betrayed Beren and Lthirn to Thingol Question Smilie
Ehhmmm....it was the fellow who used to sing with Lthien and was in love with her.....I am sorry Grondy I cant remember the name.....Saeron was accidently killed by Trin right? so I cant remember!
It was actually Daeron. Sorry Aule! Wink Smilie
Aul knew he was a minstrel; however, the wrong story, but Tommie came up with his name, so she gets the pretty bauble. Happy Elf Smilie

(Technically, Saeros wasn't accidentally killed by Trin, he accidentally ran off the precipice when running away from Trin, having failed in his bushwhack (ambush) attempt. The problem was, even though Trin was only defending himself, after being set upon by Saeros, Trin thought that no one would believe him due to his previous threat and action.)


Which Dwarves were sent by Thorin's Company to find a cave in which to shelterQuestion Smilie
Yup, those were the two who went looking for a safe lodging and instead came back with the keys to the Goblin's Front Porch. Perwing gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.


What road crossed the River Poros Question Smilie

Nononono I didnt mean that it was Saeros....I knew it wasnt him but I knew that Daeron had a similar name(the ae) but I couldnt figure out his name.....and I didnt mean that Turin killed him but it was that he was so afraid of Turin that he fell down a cliff or something like that.....but Tommie is still right and I know that!!
Keereckt Ringfacwen, you get the Pseudo-Silmaril. Happy Elf Smilie
