The Seven Butterflys had two correct answers

Mariska Greenleaf has 4 correct nobody can beat her.
Saucy a ruling please.

But Yavanna228 and Turambar can take it to a tie-break if either of them answer both of the remaining questions correctly.

In any event, it has been the practice in the past to ask all 10 questions even when a clear winner has emerged before the end (the final ones being for honour alone [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ).

Which is to say I think that you should continue. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Um, sorry to interupt again. But isn't there one more question left?

The number of points that you have awarded is 10, but you awarded a point each to Beren and Yavanna for the first question. So nine questions have been asked ...

I just gotta comment on the last one - sorry [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] but....

alquadae:
Q: How many palantir(i) did Feanor create

Yavanna228:
A: Seven

... alquadae gives credit for a correct answer????

Well there has to be at least 8 stones, as the Master Stone is said to be in Avalln...

Actually, Telchar, you're right to question that question. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] After I answered it, alq wasn't sure whether or not to give me credit. Apparently alq chose to do so. But I do understand what you mean, and since there was somewhat of a conflict between the different passages that we used to arrive at the conclusion of the answers, I told alq to decide if she wanted to give me credit or not. So, if she decides to revoke that, it's perfectly fine. Thanks for keeping a tight reign on us, Telchar. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
