Sammath Naur

The Return of the King;Book VI; chapter 3; Mount Doom:
The path was not put there for the purposes of Sam. He did not know it, but he was looking at Sauron's Road from Barad-dur to the Sammath Naur, the Chambers of Fire.

The Seven Dwarfs...

Can you clarify that question a bit?

you & your songs....

I DESPISE Tolkien's poems/songs ~ skip over 'em unless I was reading the books aloud to my children, lol. :*o

I would assume the elves would be singing about Snow-White. If you want a more specific answer, I would say the High elves that the hobbits met in the Shire.

I'm thinking it has something to do with Nimrodel for some reason ~ don't ask me why though.

You are absolutely correct, Starbrow.

All the acient elven-stories derives from lays/songs/poems. In some cases the poems are better than the stories. Eg : The Lay of Leithian/the story of Beren & Lúthien. IMO

My God, that stuff is unreadable, Tom.... Simply awful.

Of course, I haven't tried it in 30 years either ~ once was enough.

I think the Lay of Leithien is fabulous, too. It's too bad that JRRT never finished it. Anyway, back to the topic.

How many days were Frodo and Sam stuck in the Emyn Muil?

four four four......

This silly rule that you have to type ten letters, lol

I guess it's four in the sense that Christ was in the ground three days, right?

Frodo and Sam entered Emyn Muil on february 26, late afternoon or evening.
By Gollums help, they found their way out on the 29th about midday as I recall.

Thats only three (3) days. IMO. But I could be wrong...

Dude.....

For the record, read my post....

'In the same sense Christ was in the ground three days' ~ that means INCLUSIVE.

I checked after I guessed 4 days and saw it said exactly what you wrote:

26th, 27th, 28th, 29th.

That's er, FOUR days.

Gee, I didn't think that this would be so controversial. Both Tom and Bucky make good points and I would accept either answer. Since Bucky answered first, I'll award him the privilege to ask the next question.

Yay! I got one! :*cool:

First....

No guesses on The Hobbit question? I thought it was rather easy. Well, sorta. It's a single digit number each way, lol. :*rolleyes:

Anyhow, back to our TLOR question:

When Pippin watches the men with troops enter Minas Tirith with Bergil, Who comes in from Bergil's grandsire's and with how many?

I think it was Forlong the Fat. I don't remember how many, but I'll guess 2000 men came with him.
