I always thought that Helms Deep was a gorge where the fortress The Hornburg was made? The gorge was probably not made by men, but the fortress was most certainly made by the people of Gondor before it decay.

Helm's Deep and the Hornburg were the same fortress, built in a suitable place on the edge of the mountains. It earned the name Helm's Deep after the long besiegement of Helm Hammerhand there, in TA 2758, by the Dunlendings; Appendix A to LotR, page 429 etc.

Think Battles.

Very good answer, but unfortunately I don't believe that complied with my first clue of being able to substitute Isengard for Weathertop. Well anyway, it's not what I was lookign for, although it would have been a great question wouldn't it?

Anyway no, but with battles you are on the right track.

Hi! I decited to join in your quiz game.

So would the answer be Helm's Deep?
In the battle in the Shire - hobbits
In the battle in Isenguard - hobbits
In the battle of Pelennor (Minas Tirith) - hobbits
In the battle of Helm's Deep - no hobbits

I'm afraid that's not the answer I wanted...

so here's another clue:

think deaths

and remember the other 2 clues!!

Isengard- because no men were killed in its conquest (which did not involve a battle).

finally, someone has the answer! well in fact 2 people had it - no MEN died in Isengard in LOTR. (And of course, if you used my clue, no men died at weathertop).

Well dancing spawn of Ungoliant was first to get it, so Onward!

Orcs have never found a real, good path through the dead marshes and it is Isengard, not Isenguard even though most people would think that...
