I wont continue it though because anything I post'll be way too easy for you guys because I haven't read LotR in ages.

B) is correct, of course. But I don't deny that D) or even more A) would be very interesting answers as well (meaning it would be fantastic if they were right )

Well, I don't know what is so particularly fascinating about rivers in Dunland , but anyway, the thread is yours as you're obviously correct.

You know, from certain time I realized that all the places in Enedwaith, Minhiriath and Dunland are so mysterious that any information about them would be certainly interesting. And we don't know how the Dunnish names sounded like; so maybe something like Rhosgobel would be possible. The Witch-King's lieutenant was a better idea, though.

Is Adunakhor:

A) a mountain in East Beleriand?
B) the sword of Thingol?
C) true name of the Eight Ringwraith?
D) a Númenorean king?

Even without checking it in the book, you can notice it sounds Numenorean.

So D.

Definitely not C cause his name is Carl.

Yes, it's Finrod. And the "Nómin" were the Noldor– this is meant to be the origin of "gnome".

Yes, I wasn't sure whether it isn't a Took after all, because I don't know the English names of the Hobbits. (So you now know my weakness.) I could have added he's the maia of Ulmo (now that I know I was right I can say that with certainty).

Okay... what about this:

Shathur is:

A) Name of one of the Orcs who died in Cirith Ungol
B) Orcish word for "old man"
C) Adunaic name of one of Aldarion's ships
D) A Dwarven name for a peak in the Misty Mountains

Not even A)

In fact I am content, 50% of the answers were wrong, which in a question like that means a lot.
