It's one of the Elven guards in the Elven-King's palace. I'm working from memory here, but is it one of the guards in the first room that Bilbo comes to when he enters the caves? The female one nearest the exit, I think.

Well that just goes to show how quickly I finished the level (*ahem* if only ...)

Next question, and I am hoping that this will be quite tricksy:

I'm guessing something from the Hobbit or FOTR? In other words, is it from HOBBIT or FOTR

You are correct, Thorongil. It's not from TTT or RotK. I told you that it was tricksy. Keep guessing ...

What?!! You still want a hint? Oh, OK then. It is from what is probably one of the less well-known games.

What do you mean that doesn't help?

Less known games? Could you tell us what platform its on? I have this strange feeling its one of those really old games. That have now gone out of existance.

Pipe Implying ...

Are you implying something about my age there, Sleepy?

I have it on X-Box (I don't know whether it is also available on other systems).

I just went through a list of all the Xbox games ever made(and still to be made) and all the games I ended up with were
  • Hobbit
  • LoTR:FoTR
  • LoTR:TTT
  • LoTR:RoTK
  • LoTR:The treason of Isengard
So is it any of these?

1420!

It carries the name of one of those, although it is perhaps not the one that you are thinking of. [insert evil smilie]

Enough clues. I want answers.

White-Hand

No. Wrong game, although it is a good guess.

Try working out who might have said this and to whom. Once you get that, it won't be too difficult to work out where it was said. If you can give me those three things, the thread is yours.

Question No guesses?

Come on folks. Think who might have said this sort of thing.

And here's another hint. This character is not one who you would necessarily expect to feature in a videogame (or at least not in the parts where the player controls the action).

Well, Without having played the game in question it is difficult, but it sounds like something Gildor could have said when he met Frodo.

No, the character is one more likely to feature in a videogame than Gildor.

Orcrist's guess was close, except that the game wasn't the Hobbit and the character saying the quote wasn't Elrond. Now, that should be a BIG hint.

Thumbs up

Bingo! Well done, Thorongil.

The game is indeed FotR, although not the pure fighting-based one that seems to be the more popular. This one follows the book story more (it has Bombadil and the Barrow-Wight, for example) and you play (on different levels) Frodo, Aragron and Gandalf. Personally, I preferred it as there was more exploring and puzzle-solving involved, but that's probably just me.

Your up next, Thorongil.
