    Just finished Fellowship...

    Tolkien's writing is so rich and meaningful. I hope you enjoy the next volumes of The Lord of the Rings!

    Why doesn’t Frodo cry when leaving Middle-Earth?

    I think Frodo is a very interesting character. In this impossible journey he often searches for reassurance from his friends, but not very often does he completely shut down. He always knows what he has to do but seldom wants to do it, but he does anyway. Frodo is unique in the sense that he's...

    I really don't think this is the answer, Belthil, but . . . Dori?

    Sorry Miguel, I really don't think this is it but . . . Eärendil?

    Why didn't Lúthien overthrow Morgoth?

    Although Lúthien could have been instrumental in a possible ambush of Morgoth, I think she was just there to get the Silmaril to be free to love Beren. She really was just thinking about their future together and not the future of both of their races which could have been more helpful in the...

    You can never study LoTR too much! I am currently re-reading The Hobbit because its been a while since I last read it. I look forward to figuring out your trivia!

    Hurray! Miguel, you are correct! I would have also accepted Throngil, or how Aragorn was known when he was the counselor of Ecthelion, father of Denethor (an ungrateful father.) The following is a direct quote from the Appendices at the end of The Lord of the Rings: "Thorongil men called him in...

    Miguel, you are so close! Boromir is not the answer, but I think you know who the right answer is now!
  9. Elros Tar-Minyatur

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    Also, another good guess, Belthil, but not the right one. Big hint: I was the counselor of a father of an ungrateful father. I am one of the Walkers.

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    Belthil, again a good guess, but not quite. The answer I am looking for did become a king one day though!
  11. Elros Tar-Minyatur

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    Both good guesses, but the answer to my riddle is someone who was born in later times in Middle-earth.
  12. Elros Tar-Minyatur

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    Wow, I'm surprised I got that right! That was a good riddle! My Riddle: I was the counselor of a false king And am the possessor of an old ring Five points I wore The responsibility of my ancestors I bore

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    Belthil, I really don't think this it the right answer but I'll give it a shot. Is the answer Neekerbreekers as Sam called the creatures during their travel to Weathertop in The Fellowship of the Ring?

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    Belthil, you at correct. Ringil was Fingolfin’s sword that stabbed Morgoth in the foot. Congratulations!
  15. Elros Tar-Minyatur

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    You are so very close! You are correct that the answer is a sword, but Túrin was not an Elf. Think of swords wielded by Elves at the time of The Silmarillion.
  16. Elros Tar-Minyatur

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    Thank you, Miguel, but that is not correct either. Think a little earlier than the events of The Lord of the Rings. Think about The Silmarillion. Hint: My master was an Elf.

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    Very good guess Starbrow, but Grond is not the right answer. If you are referring to Grond the battering ram, you are cold. But if you are referring to the Warhammer, you are very close.

    ~Tolkien Trivia Game~

    This is my first ever post and since there hasn't been another riddle in quite some time, here's mine. My Riddle: Cold is my bite And I filled my enemy with spite I was brought to the dark gates So my master and enemy could meet each other face-to-face
