Is it the dwarven ring Thror lost when he was in the dungeons of Dul Guldur?
@Miguel and @Starbrow ... :) : tis no dwarf business :) , they were once there, now no more... there were 7, the one I am looking for was the last one, lacking the precious metals... :)
They were providing safety ...

Alas, nope, tilkal is still too precious and special...
thr chain was to keep someone in, what I am looking for is to keep someone out...

A giant Crown was placed on it in the middle...

It was supposedly build by Maeglin before his capture by Morgoth's spies ... at the end of a hidden path ...

It is the last of the seven gates of Gondolin

I'm reading the lost tales at the moment and when I got to Tuor and the fall of Gondolin I had it;)

IT is indeed The Seventh Gate, The Gate of Steel, protecting Gondolin... :) Well done! :)



Okay :) A difficult one, to chew on during the vacation... :)

"Is it a movie? A book? A song? Use your skill
I know, you not yet, maybe you will…

In it is a history bloodstained
of creatures then untamed…

It tells of Old Halls, a battle fought,
an account expected to be taught…

It was found, then given; never heard of or seen again
not by Elves, Dwarves or Man…"


What is it??

You have a talent for this Belthil! :)

Can I give one of my own, too?

Which event could make our so positively-minded Samwise Gamgee lose hope...? ;)

PS - No, it's not about snakes...

Thanks Merroe :)

Sure ! the more the merrier! :)

Wich event? ... I am going to think on that!

Could that have something to do with Rose Cotton, his future wife...? (With 40.7 degrees C (105.26 F) in the shade over here I can not think clearly... :) )

No. Another tip...

Sam said himself what it is, at the time when he had a huge task to accomplish and held a tool which could have helped him but he couldn't use it...!

Now that should bring you right into the right book and chapter! :cool:
