    Silmarillion Trivia Game

    Maedhros's Quenya father-name is Nelyafinwë, and his mother names are Maitimo and Russandol. Sorry, I'm a huge Fëanorian fangirl; I should've asked something less specific. XD; Another question, then? What was the name of Caranthir's realm in the east of Beleriand?

    I did not look it up; I know his names. And his brothers'. XD Maedhros is his Sindarin name. He has two mother-names and one father-name; any of them will do. :3

    Where have all the palantir gone?

    I've read that there were seven palantiri in Middle Earth, they were originally in Minas Anor, Minas Ithil, Amon Sul, Orthnac, Osgiliath, and the Tower Hills. I also heard of another palantir in some place called Annuminas, but where was that? And where did the palantir go after they were lost...

    just a quik Legolas question

    Mithril, why not consider making up a name for your paintball gun? I named a favorite stick of mine Waverush. (I use it for bushwacking, in case anyone's curious.)
