I'll bid 4 points and say Dwalin, even though Durin is said to have lived so long as to be called "Deathless", but since we don't know exactly how long he lived for I'll stick with Dwalin.

Right, here's the points i'm about to add:


Firefoot +10 (wow, I wonder who our winner will be )

Luthien-elvenprincess +4 (Nice try editing )

NightKnight +7

Fingolfin II + 4

The Perky Ent +2

I'll add them up as soon as I post this post Now for the question! I know this is dwarf jeopardy, and although this is a twist, it is dwarf related! The question is:

For 1 point, who plays Gimli in the 2001-3 Lord of the Rings Movies?


Remember: 1 more day then we'll have our May champion!

Much thanks!

For two points, which cardinal direction is is on top of the compass on Dwarven maps? (Sorry if this is kinda confusing, but I don't really know how to word it.)

I'll bid the full 4 points and say he said 'For my son' and was talking about the Dwarf Ring he possessed. Before this he was ranting 'The last of the Seven' over and over.

Lucky for Fingolfin II, since he doesn't have points, he has nothing to lose. Ergo, I'll do the same thing

Um...his last words were about the map and key and what he meant was for gandalf to give it to Thorin? Hey, I got nothin to lose!

I'm assuming that you mean the same last words that Fingolfin said? If so, then that is correct.

Yes I did mean "For my son", so, I guess I'll go! For 2 points, who re-crafted the gate of Minas Tirith out of Mithril?
