No. Arvedui went on a journey west and then south... the answer to this question was bound south and then west.

I can think of two possibilities.

Aragorn's heart....he told Frodo that it would lie there forever.
Or:
Arwen's life.....at Cerin Amroth, she laid down her life, and her grave remains there Until the world is changed...So sad.

Eruanna takes it, as I was thinking of Arwen's life.

The final score is:

Eruanna 4
Arestevana 2
Alaklondewen 1
Finwe 1
Earwen 1

Eruanna, you may continue! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Aha after searching UT for a while I belive I found it.

Three times every year the king of Nemenor would speak upon the pillar of the heavens. He offerd prayer for the following year.

Yes, you're right Gil-galad, about the name of the ship and Veantur being Aldarion's grandpa. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I wrote from memory, should have checked first!

I think both you and Gwaihir should have a point each...if that is ok, by the rules.

Gil-galad 3
Elven Maiden Earwen 4
Alquadae 2
Gwaihir 1

Question 10) By what other name was the region of Eldalondë known, and what was the reason for this name?
