Find the Subject
 
I've looked, and it seems that there are no other threads like this, so let's go!

The object of this game is to find the subject of the quote. You would have to give the book that the quote is from.

Here is an example:
"And I'm not used, _____ ______, to waiting on people while they eat!"
This quote is from Return of the King, and the answer is "Master Beregond". You see? It doesn't necessarily have to be spoken, but try not to get too obscure or that makes it less fun. Or is it more fun? I'm not sure. Well, here's one to start off:

Quote:

Five miles beyond ______ they halted, ending their first day's march.
This is from Return of the King.

Firefoot 03-12-2004 05:59 PM

Okay, sounds interesting. Are you supposed to say which book it is from? Or is that optional?

Osgiliath?

Mad Baggins 03-12-2004 06:08 PM

Firefoot, you're right, and yes you do have to give the book that it is from. Your go.

Firefoot 03-12-2004 06:27 PM

Okay. This is from FotR.

Quote:

They set no watch. Even ______ feared no danger yet

luthien-elvenprincess 03-12-2004 10:12 PM

Frodo:)

Firefoot 03-13-2004 07:59 AM

Yes.

luthien-elvenprincess 03-13-2004 08:38 AM

From The Two Towers

Quote:

And further still there are more lands, they say, but the _________ ________ is very hot there, and there are seldom any clouds, and the men are fierce and have dark faces.

Firefoot 03-13-2004 10:42 AM

Yellow Face.

luthien-elvenprincess 03-13-2004 12:46 PM

You are right, Firefoot

Firefoot 03-13-2004 06:47 PM

Thanks! This one is from FotR.

The _______ long defended us, but they are a sure guard no more;

Mad Baggins 03-14-2004 05:35 PM

Is it Elves?

Firefoot 03-14-2004 07:12 PM

No...

luthien-elvenprincess 03-14-2004 09:19 PM

Rangers?

Firefoot 03-15-2004 06:42 AM

Nope.

Hint - It isn't a person/group of people.

Evisse the Blue 03-15-2004 06:55 AM

Swords?

Arvedui III 03-15-2004 05:23 PM

Forests?

Mad Baggins 03-15-2004 05:47 PM

Eagles?

Firefoot 03-15-2004 06:08 PM

Nope.

Arestevana 03-15-2004 06:12 PM

Could it be mountains?

Firefoot 03-16-2004 06:30 PM

No.

Hint - It is in part 2.

Firefoot 03-20-2004 05:56 PM

Anyone? Do you need another hint?

Mad Baggins 03-22-2004 09:02 PM

Um...yes? :rolleyes:

Firefoot 03-23-2004 03:06 PM

I didn't think this would be as hard as it is - an Elf other than Legolas said it.

Mad Baggins 03-23-2004 04:34 PM

Humm...trees? Towers?

Firefoot 03-23-2004 05:51 PM

No. Alright, one more hint. It was in Lothlorien.

Iaurhirwen 03-23-2004 06:08 PM

Yea!!!!
 
Quote:

The rivers long defended us, but they are a sure guard no more;
Spoken by Haldir outside of Lothlorien, in conjunction with his remarks on how little trust there is among those who oppose Sauron, and how is power is steadily growing, and the protection that was offered by the rivers for so many years, is now gone.

Firefoot 03-23-2004 07:08 PM

We have a winner!
 
Bingo!!! I never know what is going to be hard with you people and what will be easy.

Iaurhirwen 03-28-2004 09:47 AM

I'm Back!
 
Ok. After I remember this thread now.

Hmmmm, a question:

Quote:

They knew not what could save you if the _______ _______ could not
Happy hunting!

Oops, I forgot to mention: This one is also from FOTR

Firefoot 03-28-2004 11:10 AM

white horse?

Iaurhirwen 03-28-2004 11:18 AM

You got it Firefoot. You're up.

Firefoot 03-28-2004 12:12 PM

Thanks!
 
I promise this one should be easier than the last one.
Quote:

"Do _____ live in these woods?"
From FotR.

symestreem 03-28-2004 12:25 PM

elves?

Firefoot 03-28-2004 05:59 PM

Yep.

symestreem 04-02-2004 10:48 AM

Was there ever anyone like him? Except _______, of course.

This should be easy.

Evisse the Blue 04-02-2004 11:09 AM

Gandalf, I believe.

symestreem 04-09-2004 06:47 AM

Your instincts have not led you astray. ;)

Evisse the Blue 04-09-2004 02:56 PM

"We have been warned against ______"

Iaurhirwen 04-10-2004 06:34 AM

I see that the last two "questioners" have forgotten to list which book their quote came from, as listed in the original rules . . . . . anywho, I'll just give a random quess anyway . . . . . . . . The River

Not a very good guess, I know. But it's 8:30 in the morning here on a Saturday and I'm supposed to be in bed. Mean parents for luring me out of bed with food.

Evisse the Blue 04-10-2004 08:41 AM

Sorry!
 
It's from The Two Towers. And no, it's not the river.

Mad Baggins 04-12-2004 06:35 PM

Travelers?
