Guinevere is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
I don't think posting quotes from the HoME in the main Palantir thread is a good idea, because only very few people are familiar with them, so it wouldn't be quite fair. (Same with the "Minor works" )

The main "Palantir of Fortune" started out with only LotR, but already in 2003 quotes from the hobbit and the Silmarillion were used as well, and later U.T. quotes. In those days they had to close threads after 10-12 pages and start new ones to conserve bandwidth , and the later threads explained the rules at the heading. Later, when the site was upgraded all the old threads were joined together again.
