    Alright then, Frodo passed over the Ford of Bruinen on Asfalof, the horse belonging to which elf?

    Better? I'm always happy to acknowledge my errors and correct them.

    Now, have you got a question for us Merroe?

    Let's wait for the correct answer.
    I'll be glad to offer a question then.

    Wait, isn't it hxrxy's turn?

    If you're looking for an answer to EcthelionL's question, it's Glorfindel.

    Gah, I'm still sad Glorfy didn't join the fellowship, he's pretty awesome! :D

    The question just needed more clarity, such as "In the movie, which elf carried Frodo across the Ford of Bruinen?"

    No, it was my error which I freely admit.

    It was a trick question, aimed at fooling those who've only seen the film and never read the book. In the book the Hobbits and Aragorn are met by Glorfindel who puts Frodo on his horse to carry him over the ford. In the film, Glorfindel's role is taken over by Arwen (as if Elrond would send his daughter out when the Black Riders are present!) and she does carry Frodo over the ford.

    My mistake - hands up. That'll learn me not to try to fool anyone.

    It was Theoden's sword. It spent a long time hidden away by Grima but once more saw action at the Hornburg and the Pelennor.

    Is it allowed to ask questions like: how many islands had been on the first maps of Middle-Earth?

    Hi Romendacil, welcome to TTF! I'd suggest asking in the Hall of Fire forum as it's for discussing stuff about Middle Earth that isn't specifically in the books . Let me (the most if not only active mod) know if you need anything!
