    haha, ofcourse I had to look it up :) :) it was a very tricky and difficult one! :) Thanks for that! :)

    Ok :) another one...

    "At the feet of the Golden One
    no horses tramped on it, none…

    Do not forget them, everlasting
    no, not a single king…

    For long forgotten and new to come
    songs are sung here in a humm…

    One covered thick as snow
    reminder of a winter we all know…"


    What and where am I?

    It's the grave of Helm Hammerhand which is covered by the white simbelmynë

    Had to look it up ofcourse... :)

    " Angaino Together with angayassë ‘misery’, angaitya ‘torment’, Angaino is given in QL separately from the ‘iron’ words (see Angamandi) and was first defined as ‘a giant’, emended to ‘the great chain’. In GL Melko has a name Angainos, with a note: ‘Do not confuse Gnomish Angainos with Qenya Angaino (Gnomish Gainu), the great chain of tilkal.’ Under Gainu there is a later note: ‘popularly connected with ang “iron” but really = “tormentor”."

    Angainos/Melkor are one and the same...

    So I looked it up another time...
    You're right, the chain isn't called Angainos (that's the genitiv in my german book:p:rolleyes:)
    It's just Angaino...(without r)

    You sure it's without the r? Everywhere I've read it (except maybe in the earlier stuff, lost tales and such) it's been with the r.

    giant great chain to bind him ... yes :)
    the explanations given some times are open for more than one interpretation... sadly :)

    Next one :)

    "We fly everywhere, yet are no flies
    says one so, he lies…

    We like to bother all and everybody
    to us a sting is like honey…

    You heard of us but once
    strange, for we are a large wild bunch…

    We fly and bother and fly, yet are no flies
    says one so, he lies…"


    What are we called?

    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?

    Indeed !! Well done, I was looking for Gnats, but the Neekerbreekers refer to the same :)

    Here's one :

    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

    I was guessing Amandil, but i don't remember any mention about a ring of his. All these riddles seem at first easy but they're not.
