Once more, marevlous! Oh, and thank you for the reference to Elvorama. *bows* That is very much appreciated.

Alright...for 4 points.

Where and when did Thorin Oakenshield first met Gandalf? By 'when', I mean month/day/year.

Eye I will bid all 4 points ...

... and say 15 March, 2941 (Third Age) in an inn at Bree (although the Unfinished Tales has them meeting on the road to Bree). The name of the inn is not specified, but it was quite likely the Prancing Pony.

Thumbs up Quite remarkable ...

Sorry Thorongil, but samwise8504 got there first. And samwise, you didn't place a bid which, according to the Perky Ent's rules, means that you get minimum points for the question, ie 1 point. But you do get to ask the next one.

(Perky Ent: I think that you should add the rules on the consequences of not bidding to your first post on this thread.)
