Dear lathspell, what made you think I had confused Sirion and Sirannon? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
If you mean that part where I mentioned that The Ring never crossed Sirannon I'm pretty sure that that is the case. Although the Fellowship followed the riverside (of Sirannon - or what was left of it) I think they never crossed it.

Question

Just a guess, but the Sirannon is the only one without an island?

My mistake, Annunfuiniel. I thought you meant Beleriand by that, because it was destroyed. I never realised that the Sirannon was only a dry bed by the time that the company arrived there. And I've read the LotR already for 7 times or so... maybe I need read it again [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Better line of thinking Lindolirian. I like question to turn over fast so I'll give another hint. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

*hint* what was so special about Nimrodel?

Nimrodel because it is the only one that was named after someone or had someone living there.

Nimrodel does not have the ruins of an ancient city. Near the source of the Baranduin is what's left of Annuminas, at the junction of Sirannon and Glanduin was Ost-in-Edhel, and the ruins of Osgiliath span Anduin in Gondor

It's hard to think of another hint!

Nimrodel is not the answer, just a clue to the answer. Go read the book, it's calling you, I hear it...

Nimrodel - The Falls of Nimrodel (I love that little section)
Baranduin
Sirannon - The Stair Falls
Anduin - The Falls of Rauros

Annunfuiniel - you're killing me today! good job. If you run over to Geography grilling you might get a trifecta. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Minas Tirith was never occupied by evil.

Angband was the only structure of the First Age.

Minas Morgul since it was the only place to be taken over by evil.

or Dol Guldur becuase it was the only one to cause a name change for its surroundings.

Minas Tirith is the only place Sauron hasn't been
or
Minas Tirith is the only place where Sauron wasn't ever in the history of M-e in command.

The best I could come up with yet

Minas Morgul because Sauron never actually dwelt there, even though he controlled it.

Cirith ungol wasn't destroyed

or Cirith ungol was the meanign of the tower when it was in control of evil
(i mean its a different name then its original because Mt.Doom was what man called it and Amon sul and Amon hen was there original names so i would sya Coith Ungol)

Cirith Ungol is the only one that refers to a tower, not a hill or mountain with a building in or on it.

Cirith Ungol is a pass the Rinbearer used, I am not referring to the Tower of Cirith Ungol. I will enlarge the list, and that way an extra clue will be added.

Amon Sl
Cirith Ungol
Amon Hen
Orodruin

Woodhall is the only place where a battle hasn't occured.

Alternately, Minas Tirith is the only place Frodo didnt go before the destruction of the Ring.
