First age character associations
 
I give some words associated with First age character. If you guess correctly, you continue.

Urwen 04-18-2010 03:25 AM

Here:
1.Stream
2.Song
3.A Balrog
5.Havens
6.Aman

So, who is it?

And this also includes Second age characters...

Hey, this is actually, to my knowledge, quite a new way of asking riddles, and shouldn't be left to die!

And the first answer could be Nimrodel again:

1. Stream = her namesake
2. Song = the one Legolas sang
3. A Balrog = Durin's Bane, whose awakening by the Dwarves was the reason for her and Amroth's emigration plans
(4. got lost - like Nimrodel herself;))
5. Havens - of Edhellond, where they planned to set sail
6. Aman - final destiny which she never reached

Urwen 05-15-2010 12:32 PM

Your turn.It is Nimrodel.;)

Pitchwife 05-15-2010 02:43 PM

Thanks!:)
Now let's see, what have we got here?:

1. Harp
2. Swans
3. Rainbow
4. Cloak
5. Star

Legate of Amon Lanc 05-15-2010 03:28 PM

Would Tuor be it? Harp only as the instrument, Swans on the shore when he came to the coast, Rainbow related to Cirith Ninniach, Cloak the Cloak of Ulmo, Star related to Eärendil?

Pitchwife 05-15-2010 03:58 PM

Verily, Legate, thou hast nailed it. Thread is thine!

Legate of Amon Lanc 05-16-2010 04:59 AM

Woe is me, now I must come up with a new one...

Okay, what about this:

1. Slavery
2. Charity
3. Fire
4. Foes
5. Marriage

Andsigil 05-16-2010 05:27 AM

Aerin

Legate of Amon Lanc 05-16-2010 06:01 AM

Of course. Your turn!

Andsigil 05-16-2010 06:57 AM

1. exile
2. cudgel
3. key
4. stone
5. death

Urwen 05-16-2010 09:30 AM

Maeglin?

Andsigil 05-16-2010 02:28 PM

My apologies.

I just realized that it was (ahem) a FIRST age character we were supposed to use. :o

I'll count your guess as correct and surrender control to you, Urwen, with a mea culpa.

(BTW, my answer was Thorin, who was definitely not around in the First Age).

Urwen 05-16-2010 02:50 PM

Thanks.

What about this:

1.Brethil
2.Orcs
3.Thingol
4.Death
5.Father
6.Brother

It's a little tough...

Andsigil 05-17-2010 07:15 AM

Haldar?

Urwen 05-17-2010 07:28 AM

Warm.Very warm..:D

Andsigil 05-17-2010 07:40 AM

Halmir?

(I'd better hurry and exhaust the entire lineage before someone else gets it...)

Urwen 05-17-2010 07:44 AM

You were closer with Haldar..

Time for a small hint:

Amrod/Amras

Now it should be easy...;)
