Well, I don't think I know that one. And I think the rule is, if you can't guess it, you have to give the next letter.

So....El

actually you have to wait for the asker to give the right answer before giving the next letter. since otherwise the asker could ask for the same answer with a slightly different question. I have edited this also in my first post.

I thought that might have been it, but anyways....hmm. I'm stumped both ways. I can't get the mountain, unless you were going for Erebor, which I highly doubt. As for the mistaken Rohirrim, the only one I can think of is Eowyn, and that's not right. So, if you can, give me your answers, and we can get this over with.

my answer is Elrohir. Rohir could be translated "horse-lord" and thus Elrohir could be mistaken for a rider of rohan.

White-Hand

Paavo is right. The game only works if, when the person setting the clue cannot answer a question, the question-asker gives the answer that they had in mind. Only when they have done so should the next letter be given. Otherwise people could ask questions to which there is no answer that fits and thereby get all the letters.

It would be best of people hold off from asking questions until the asker has given the answer that they had in mind and the next letter has been given. Otherwise it tends to get somewhat confusing.
