Diamond18 11-07-2002 12:23 PM

Weathertop is the only place that the Hobbits weren't safe, and/or where one of them was injured.

lathspell 11-07-2002 12:34 PM

Fangorn is the only place where not all of the Hobbits went.

mordor136 11-08-2002 09:12 PM

lathspell got it. well done

lathspell 11-13-2002 05:38 AM

Cair Andros

Hint: Names!


HerenIstarion 11-13-2002 07:08 AM

Imladris - cleaved valley
Lothlorien – flower of dreams
Cair Andros - ship of long-foam
Carrock - Carrock

carrock is not sindarin
out with it

(I'm good at showing off, am I not? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img])

mordor136 11-13-2002 11:24 AM

Darn you beat me to it. Well enough of being a bad sport. Thats what I would have said.It took me to long to translate the names.

lathspell 11-13-2002 12:05 PM

You are VERY good at showing off HerenIstarion [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]... but it was not what I was looking for :P

Try again!

Diamond18 11-13-2002 12:22 PM

Hmmmm...Imladris is the only place usually called something else (Rivendell).

Lindolirian 11-13-2002 07:31 PM

Well, what I'm thinking of seems too easy, but I might as well try it anyways: Imladris is the only one west of the Misty Mountains.

Precioussss 11-13-2002 07:50 PM

They all have Elvish names, except for Carrock?

HerenIstarion 11-14-2002 05:45 AM

Well, I'll put my finger on Carrock again, on the ground that all three others are composed names (i.e cleaved+valley etc) and carrock, well, is just carrock (I don't think it was the stony place where beornings were parking their trucks [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img])

lathspell 11-16-2002 12:16 PM

Diamond18 is in the good direction, but still I haven't heard the answer I am looking for.

TolkienGurl 11-16-2002 12:27 PM

Imladris is the only one not by the Anduin?
Imladris is the only dale, or valley?

Gwaihir the Windlord 11-16-2002 07:58 PM

Er... they were on rivers, but Lothlorien was the only one whose river did not have a permanent way of crossing over?

lathspell 11-18-2002 08:01 AM

Good gracious, what things you all come up with. Yet I've not seen the answer yet.

I gave you ppl a hint in the beginning, remember it.

here it is again: NAMES!

mordor136 11-18-2002 11:08 AM

Imladris is the only one that starts with a vowel. that was stupid

lathspell 11-19-2002 02:37 AM

I'll give a second hint! Be ready, here it comes: TREEBEARD!

tom bombariffic 11-19-2002 07:58 AM

Is it that carrock is the only one written in Westron (common language of Middle Earth)

Curulin 11-19-2002 08:29 AM

hello all.
right, my guess is that treebeard has met people from all of the places except Carrock. I believe he met Elrond (imladris), Galadriel (Lothlorien) and i dunno who from Cair andros, but its worth a guess, cos he didnt (as far as i know) ever meet Beorn from Carrock. thank you, Curulin

Curulin 11-19-2002 09:00 AM

Ah ha, i have had another idea... here goes: is the answer that treebeard calls lothlorien by another name (Laurelindorenan) and none of the others? Alternatively, he calls all but one of them by another name, unique to him, although i cannot find where he says any of the others... thanks again, just say if im way off or along the right lines...

mordor136 11-19-2002 11:26 AM


treebeard calls lothlorien by another name (Laurelindorenan) and none of the others?
I cant believe I didnt think of that. COOL answer

[ November 19, 2002: Message edited by: mordor136 ]

lathspell 11-20-2002 03:38 PM

Curulin is correct!

Lothlorien is the only place to have had another name that we know off.

Good job and please ask another.


Curulin 11-20-2002 05:04 PM

ok, here goes:

(near) Taur-nu-Fuin

By the way, nothing to do with elves...... Be specific! Good Luck!!!

HerenIstarion 11-21-2002 05:11 AM

Taur-nu-Fuin, for it is a forest, and all of the rest are (more or less) caves

Curulin 11-21-2002 07:27 AM

No doubt you are correct HerenIstarion, however, it is not the answer i was looking for. Guess again....

Clue: think of events that happened in the places.

HerenIstarion 11-21-2002 08:08 AM

Taur-nu-Fuin again, on the ground that Luthien haven't been there. She was raised in Doriath, held captive in Nargothrond and journyed to Angband with a brief official visit [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img], but I don't recall her visiting Taur-nu-Fuin

Curulin 11-21-2002 09:46 AM

hehe, im afraid you'll need to reconsider, that is also incorrect. Luthien has been to Taur-nu-Fuin, but you're geting closer...

HerenIstarion 11-22-2002 08:32 AM


silly me [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]


Clad in these dreadful garments Huan and Lúthien ran through Taur-nu-Fuin, and all things fled before them
I will vote for Angband this time. The only place were Lúthien was not helped by Huan?

Curulin 11-22-2002 10:50 AM

Ah ha, now you are getting very warm indeed, in so far as you have now mentioned the beast the question concerns. although still not quite there... keep going though, it shouldnt take too long....

lathspell 11-24-2002 01:39 PM

Taur-nu-Fuin is the only place where Huan did not rescue Luthien from prison or a person.

Doriath - Two of the sons of Feanor
Nargothrond - Luthien held captive
Angband - Werewolves, Draugluin himself and at last Sauron
Taur-nu-Fuin - the only place that they only ran through without any action.

I have no books here, and only thought of this because of the things said above. If this is it: thank you, Order of Wizards [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]


Curulin 11-24-2002 01:50 PM

hmm, im afraid thats still not the answer i was looking for... forget Luthien and focus on Huan. good luck....

HerenIstarion 11-25-2002 06:37 AM

well, Doriath?

place were Huan met his match...

Curulin 11-25-2002 10:09 AM

afraid not...
ill give you a clue, its got something to do with something that most ordinary hounds cannot...

lathspell 11-25-2002 01:08 PM

Taur-nu-Fuin is the only place where Huan the Wolfhound did not speak.

1st time: in Nargothrond he speaks to Luthien Tinuviel about his plans of escape
2nd time: in Angband, counselling Beren about his choice and doom.
3rd time: in Doriath, bidding Beren farewell after the Hunting of the Wolf, when his Doom was fulfilled.

Curulin 11-25-2002 04:18 PM

YAY!! well youre basically right, Huan doesnt speak in Angband, he speaks near Taur-nu-fuin. Very well done. so, now its your turn to ask a question i suppose. my reign is over, sigh....

lathspell 11-26-2002 11:20 AM

Ah yes, I doubted between those...


Dol Guldur

Good luck!

Salix 11-26-2002 01:39 PM

Angband is the only one that Sauron didn't visit? (that I know of)

lathspell 11-27-2002 11:55 AM

Sauron did visit Angband, he was captain of Angband in the Time of Morgoth. It had to do with Sauron though.

Keep up the good thinking.

Curulin 11-27-2002 12:20 PM

umm, angband, as it is the only place Sauron was not chased out of, or destroyed in.
Numenor, his body was destroyed along with numenor when the seas were bent.
Dol Guldur, he was chased out by the white council in the time of the hobbit,
Mordor, he was defeated by the last alliance, when the ring was cut from his finger, and when the ring was destroyed.
hmm, hope thats right...
