    If you could add a scene to the LOTR or take out a scene would?

    LOL... You said A scene. ;*) So.... "Go Home to Sam" from the original releases is the greatest infamnia. From the EE's, Gandalf versus the Witch-king. Add? Well, I guess Sauron having his body & not being a Lighthouse. :*confused: Oh... Take out one of the 6 endings in ROTK that took 21...

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Anduril ~ only sword never in Beleriand. Gurthang ~ only sword made of a non-Arda metal Ringil ~ only sword to wound Morgoth Bingo! (maybe) But a good one ~ Orcrist: The only one of the 5 swords not owned by a king at one time. (Gurthang was owned by Thingol as Anglachel ~ sorry about...

    You always do so, good, you have extra credit built up, Starbrow. ;*) Daeron ~ the only one to create a set of runes (of those listed) I thought me saying 'Like Daeron was the only minstrel...' Would give you the nudge you needed. But alas. Now, to put the thinking cap on... :*confused:

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Well, one always tries to be tricky, so I tried the exact opposite here. ;*) Hint: look at each name separately & what they did... instead of looking at a 'group of three and odd 'man' out' So, it's an 'only one to___' question. :*eek:

    No. You surprise me, Starbrow... This one is really easy. But, the person giving the riddle always says that. ;*) In this case, it just happens to be true.

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    No & no... Although they're both true. Thingol also fought in the First Battle.

    So, as the thread's dormant & I appear to have given a valid answer, I'll resurrect it.... ;*) Mablung Daeron Luthien Thingol

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Why do i bother? There is NOTHING in the text which even slightly implies Gandalf used Glamdring in defeating Durin's Bane.... "Those who looked up from afar thought that the mountain was crowned with storm. Thunder they heard, and lightning, they said, smote upon Celebdil, & leaped back...

    Actually, regarding Shelob, didn't I recently post a quote out of the Letters about the Balrog being a 'holdover' from Thangorodrim along with Shelob? So, therefore, Shelob was from Nan Dungortheb & the First Age.
