    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Carcharoth No horseback riding with him. :p

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    You got it Strider (and you doubted yourself :p). The 'pairs' were just a smokescreen (and to add a little twist ;)); because I thought it would be too easy otherwise. The so-called 'controversy' was Gimli; because it was only 'rumored' he went with Legolas. Anyway, nice job Ranger; you're up.

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Prince; you are in the ballpark (in fact, right there in the infield ;))! However, in what way I will not say. :) Actually, here's another little hint. There is more to my 'infield' analogy if you think about it. Let's narrow it down to third base. What comes after third base?

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    I can't believe I'm hearing these 'out-of character' faint-hearted words from the TTF ring leader "Strider" herself! There isn't an 'invasion of the body-snatchers' thing going on - beginning in Japan; is there? :D Ranger; it's Illuin - your TTF comrade; remember? You love those Black and White...

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Come on folks. What's the story here? This is not the usual expertise I have come to know and expect. :p Are we getting rusty? :cool:

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Hey cool; I won. OK, here's one that is pretty easy (and straightforward). I'll begin with a hint: The correct answer may cause some trivial controversy. :D Sam Frodo Elrond Arwen Galadriel Gimli Bilbo Gandalf Despite the pairs, the answer is one individual :p

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Saruman - The White Wizard Gandalf - The White Aredhel - White Lady of Gondolin Éowyn - White Lady of Rohan Aragorn - Erm.... :D I should always remember to guess Aragorn when it is you Strider :p

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    One haughty contestant wasn't particularly exhilarated traveling on horseback :D. He prefers walking here and there, they say, as an old man, hooded and cloaked. :p

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    This isn't a vowel consonant thing, is it? :D

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    I think your spelling is fine, but if you're anything like most women I know, you try to type 3,000 wpm (rush, rush, rush :D), and e and a are very easy to reverse.

    The "WHAT IF...?" game

    They didn't have the experience or intellect. Anything Men did, the Elves could do better if they chose. I'm not a big fan of the snooty Elves either, but they had Men beat in every possible area and every possible way. Many of the Elves in Aman had been alive for nearly 15,000 years. I'm...

    The "WHAT IF...?" game

    Eönwë was a Maia. And I'm in the corner of those who do not think the Valar actually participated in combat. The army is never referred to as Valar, but rather as the host of the Valar. There is some evidence given in the 'Istari' chapter of Unfinished Tales: Also, it is Eönwë (Maiar); the...

    The "WHAT IF...?" game

    I don't know CoE. Granted, the Númenórean navy was very impressive considering they scared Sauron stiff - and he had to implement plan B. But those gullible West-folk would have been a feast for the buzzards after the Eldar got finished with them. The Elves were a bunch of haughty snoots, but...

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    Bombadil No one knows what the heck he is. :D EDIT: Oops. Looks like Fir already said that. Hmm. Anything to do with wings? :p

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    There are some issues I would like to address here (ehem :rolleyes:), but since another game is already underway (and I'm too lazy :D), I'll take a rain check. Glorfindel was re-embodied. Technically, Saruman was "embodied" (incarnated) in the flesh, but Glorfindel died, was re-embodied, and...

    The "WHAT IF...?" game

    Manwë and his close-knit incompetent clique would have debated and remained inert as usual, prompting Tulkas and Ulmo to take matters into their own hands, and like Fëanor & Co.; they too would have been banished from the Undying Lands and sent to Middle-Earth; in which case Sauron would have...

    The Tolkien 'odd man out' game

    No one slew Húrin (at least physically :D).

    The "WHAT IF...?" game

    That was good CoE & WW. Although I think the Quest would have failed HUGE were it not for Aragorn's bluff (for more reasons than I can count). Gandalf knew exactly what he was doing when he gave the palantír to Aragorn after the Pippin incident. He hinted Aragorn should USE IT (but he should not...

    Quiz/Trivia

    Almaren I was around (Illuin) at that time. I was invited to the wedding, but had to decline (no days off for me). It was all for nothing, because I died anyway, so I couldn't kick back on my social security. Would have gone South for retirement and lived with my brother who was in Florida...

    Quiz/Trivia

    His name was Manthor, and he plays a big part in The Wanderings of Húrin in War of The Jewels. This is a continuation and conclusion of Narn i Chîn Húrin (Tale of the Children of Húrin) that wasn't included in The Silmarillion or Children of Húrin. Manthor befriends Húrin when a civil war in the...
