In the book it's vaitya
But how I can see have the names chabged a bit
Ah ok different spelling then, no sweat, you were right!
Maybe this is an explanation:
Vaiya or vaia (from earlier waiya, waia) means "fold, envelope". It derives from the root WAY- 'enfold'.
In the earlier Book of Lost Tales, the early Qenya forms Vai and Vatya are derived from the root vaya- "enfold". From that root are derived the Gnomishforms Bai and Baithon "the outer airs".
Before the writing of the Lord of the Rings, Waiya > Vaiya was the name of the Tengwa that would appear as Vala in Appendix E.
I see I have to read much more...
Haha no! One can't read everything and rememder it!!!
I like these sites very much:
Many items and in depth details !
Curiously enough, the word "Valla" means "fence/hurdle" in Castilian.
Tolkien was a master talent wonder...
Jonathan @mazzly solved the problems!
A hill green and yellow
For a good brave fellow
Fighting against his foe
He fell down with him low
There both of them were killed
One's funeral was fulfilled
In a hill green and yellow
Where and who is it?
Verrry nice riddle!
Is is Brytta Léofa at Dunharrow?
2. Nope sorry
The place is Cirith Thoronath and the good brave fellow is Laurefindil!.
It was at that time that a balrog and a contingent of orcs ambushed their company. Glorfindel there accomplished his greatest deed, for he saved the lives of Tuor, Idril, and all the company when he defied the balrog. They fought long. According to The Fall of Gondolin Glorfindel stabbed it in the belly, but as the balrog fell it reached out and grabbed his long golden hair, pulling him back down over the edge of the cliff. He perished in the fall, but his body was borne up by Thorondor, and buried him with a mound of stones in the pass. On that mound grew yellow flowers (possibly celandine), despite its remote location.
Yes that's it!
A new one
"I was the last, numer seven, guarding,
six to begin with, they were learning…
I saw Gold and Silver to my back,
precious metals I lack…
After me there it lay,
but for eternity it was not to stay…
Some suggest the betrayer was my maker sore,
ah, never mind, it does not matter any more…"
What am I ?
Difficult, requesting hints!.
Is it the dwarven ring Thror lost when he was in the dungeons of Dul Guldur?
