I bid two points, and say unknown. We know of six plus Balin: Ori, Oin, Floi, Frar, Loni and Nali.

Really starting to hate the emailing system.
But on a happier note - yes NightKnight you were correct, you're too clever to be fooled by trick questions!

I bet 2 points and say Beleg - because I'm sure there was also someone else who wanted to kill him.

I'll also bid 2 points, but I'll say Hurin, because he did kill him and I suppose if he killed him, he must have wanted to....I guess.

I think Kath, that Sirith gets only one point since he didn't place a bid, according to one of Perky's previous posts. Nice try, though .

Sorry Kath. Sirith has the right answer, but since she (?) didn't place a bid there is only one point awarded. Your turn Sirith.

Hey, Fingolfin, we posted on the same minute!
