an 'E' please.

Diamond18 12-08-2002 03:28 PM

If it's unfair of me to solve it right away, somebody slap me, okay? But the fact that it's a song and those telling hyphens kinda gave it away, so....

Gil-galad was an Elven-king.
Of him the harpers sadly sing:
The last whose realm was fair and free
Between the Mountains and the Sea.

May I join the guessing team? I think I know what it is:

"Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes." (Frodo to Gildor)

Diamond18 12-09-2002 05:43 PM

That's right, Guinevere. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] It's your turn.

Guinevere 12-12-2002 02:28 PM

May I have an R please? Lathspell? are you there?

lathspell 12-17-2002 01:28 PM

Yes, I am here again. And I am sorry to have kept you all waiting for so long.

Here it is:

-E-R/N-T!

---N/T-E/---ENESSES/--/-S----R/
-N-/-N-R--N,/--/S-RES/--/---.

---SE/--/V---N---/-S----R'S/S-N,/
-E-R/--/E-EN--L,/--S/N----T/T-/-RE--!

I believe I have left no letters closed.
Good luck!

Guinevere 12-17-2002 05:26 PM

Ah, at last ! And I think I have already solved it :
"Fear not!
Long have I desired to look upon the likenesses of Isildur and AnÓrion, my sires of old. Under their shadow Elessar the Elfstone, son of Arathorn of the house of Valandil Isildur`s son, heir of Elendil, has nought to dread!"
(Aragorn to the Fellowship when they are approaching the Argonath)

This game is really fun, it`s rather similar to crossword-puzzles! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

lathspell 12-18-2002 09:18 AM

Well done, Guinevere.
You're to do the next [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

'R' please. Some of us unlucky fans aren't able to see it yet. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] I'm hoping tonight.
