It is not Fingolfin I have in mind, Bucky.

To be honest, I don't know if he also had a silver-hafted knife.

Think LOTR...

Really? Just a logical guess. I recall Legolam had a long knife and nobody else in the Fellowship had one that I recall. Remember Legolas 'hunting' the Orcs at Parth Galen with a long knife after he ran out of arrows.

Okay, so this one's open to anything......

For what exact reason did Gil-Galad write Tar-Meneldur, King of Numenor in S.A. 883, causing him to resign the sceptre prematurely to his son Aldarion?

I'm looking for the exact words in the letter....

I'll take one of either of the two phrases used.

Obviously. "Sauron arose' or "Sauron's back and we're in a heap of sh*t' won't do. :*D

Actually, since this is a rather tough one, I'll take anything reasonably close to the exact phrases....

I don't know why this always stuck with me ~ actually I do, lol ~ but it did.

Hmm... I'm not quite sure what you want here... :*confused:

But I'll have a go anyway...

Gil-Galad needed more men and materials to hold the pass at river Isen against Saurons hoards. Cirdan could not afford to send men so Gil-Galad send his request to Meneldur via his good friend, Aldarion. Meneldur would not make such a decision (to send Númenoreans to war) and saw it as an opotunity, to keep Aldarion at home, so he desided to resign and pass the staff (or was it a crown?) to his son.

Edit : Ohh yeah... and there were something about a harbour that Aldarion had already made...but I don't quite remember that bit...

Hope thats ok.....

I had to read and reread, not just your question but the letter itself.

I kept reading the bottom of your question instead of the bottom of Gil-Galads letter :

The darkness that is to come is filled with hatred for us, but it hates you no less. The
Great Sea will not be too wide for its wings, if it is suffered to come to full growth.

That if nothing is done, even Númenor is in jeopardy.

Is that, what you were looking for? If not, I don't have a clue....

No, what I was looking for was:

'A new shadow arises in the East' or 'A servant of Morgoth is stirring'

Let's try again.....

In what year did Tharbad finally become completely deserted?

No bites on this one?

I thought this was simple...

We'll give it one more day before Tom can look it up. ;*)
