    Am I allowed to guess? :oops:

    I think he was their cousin? Btw, Faramir is my favorite Man in the Tolkien world. :D

    Course you can guess - They weren't cousins but you're close.

    I think it's interesting how "Melkor" is not an evil name, but it suggests within it a potential to fall! "Mighty rising". Melkor was the greatest of the Ainur, and all his later names had to do with his evil. "Morgoth" the Black Foe. "Bauglir" the Constrainer. This makes me think of the Ainulindalë, how Melkor knew most of the mind of Ilúvatar and then brought in the Discord by his own free will.

    That's right. Boromir and Faramir's mother was Imrahil's sister.

    Who was the tallest of all the hobbits?

    Bandobras Bullroarer Took was the tallest Hobbit that ever lived at 4'5" - tht was until Meriadoc and Peregrin drank some Ent draught. That made them even taller than Bandobras, though their actual height is not recorded.

    Correct! :D I can't recall, did it ever say which was taller? I thought I remember it being Pippin...

    Anyways, I knew that one wouldn't trick YOU, EcthelionL! :D

    Oops! Sorry, didn't see these! :oops:

    In a way you're both right: Merry and Pippin were technically the tallest hobbits, but Bullroarer was naturally the tallest-- so free cookies for everyone! :D

    I don't know - I don't know everything!

    So, whose turn to pick a question - Starbrow or Azrubel?

    ;) So you say...

    Honestly idk, don't make me pick! :confused: I guess whoever has a chance to post first (since these forums aren't terribly active :().

    But of I HAD to pick, I'd say Azrubel, since I'm kinda a perfectionist :oops:

    Ok! What type of runes appear on the maps in The Hobbit, different from the rest of Tolkien's work?

    Would these be the Anglo-Saxon runes? Which are used to stand for Dwarvish runes?
