It is Avathar because Elves never dwelt there or went there.

Lorien --> the Galadhrim
Mordor --> the Last Alliance
Sirion --> Elrond/Elros/Elwing, etc.

Hmm, so I take it Avathar isn't the answer? This is a fairly tough one to crack....

Mordor was never evacuated or deserted like the others were, but then Avathar was never exactly populated in the first place.

Was it that Mordor was not on the water? Unless you count Nurnen of course, but that wasn't a landlocked lake and slightly different.

i thought this wasn't really hard, if you reread the Silmarillion about how Feanor was still in the Undying Lands, then you will know the anwser (now that i have expalined it)

Lol, it is in fact quite a hard one you've given us.

Mordor, Avathar, Sirion, Lorien... could it perhaps be that no relative of Feanor ever went to Avathar, if that's the kind of thing you're getting at (no time to fetch the Sil right now I'm afraid =])?

Errr well I was going to say something about shadows but I don't think that's on the right track either... perhaps Lorien (in Valinor) was the only place that an Elf died naturally in (Miriel)? Seems like a long shot... Well go on then, give us the answer. I don't think we're getting anyway with this bilogue of ours.

Really? But surely no Elf died, naturally or otherwise, at all in Avathar. Rather an ill-fitting question wasn't it? =\

Well ok, I'll give the next one anyway (which by the way should be terribly easy):
- Fangorn
- Edoras
- Erebor
- Bag-End

Terribly easy you say? Then I shall give a terribly obvious answer. Bag-End is the only one situated on the Eastern side of the Hithaeglir. It also is the only one that does not have a River Running through it.

EDIT: To avoid onfusion, I just wanted to clarify that the capitalization was toemphasize on my pun of "river running through" and "the River Running".

Hmmm, well perhaps not THAT easy I suppose =]... both decent answers, but neither the one I was looking for. Three or four more and I might give you a Clue.

That was a pathetic pun by the way.

Close, Saucepan, but not quite.

Actually this probably isn't going to be easy at all. In fact it may be quite hard. Sorry if I have deluded any of you with falsehoods of easiness... anyway there's a clue at least, that it's to do with Hobbits.

Hmm when you make four posts in a row something's wrong... the answer was Fangorn, because a Ringbearer never slept there. Slightly obscure perhaps... anyway, anyone who wants to take the next question can go ahead. Maybe I'll have another try at answering that.

Question

Quote:

Slight understatement perhaps ... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Gwaihir, don't assume from the fact that there have been no posts that people are not puzzling over your question. It is quite right that people should avoid posting idle speculation or comments on Quiz threads and that they should post only when they think that they might have an answer. In any event, I for one had been racking my brains trying to think of who went to each location and who didn't. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

And (within reason) there is no requirement that you close off the question while your last post goes unanswered.

But anyway, good question. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] And, since my answer was "on the right track", I will take the liberty of posting the next (which I suspect will be somewhat easier):

Barad-Dur
Cirith Ungol
Minas Morgul
Orthanc

Cirith Ungo lwas teh smallest establishment or Barad-dur wasn't/was really important that much to the WOTR
(Orthanc- atatcked Rohan)
(Minas Morgul- attacked Gondor)
(Cirith Ungol- posioned Frodo)

Could either be Barad-dur, because it was the only tower not built by the Numenoreans, or perhaps Orthanc as it was never directly controlled by Sauron.

Thumbs up

Your first answer is the correct one, Gwaihir. The Towers at Cirith Ungol, Minas Morgul and Orthanc were all built by Numenorians, whereas Barad-Dur was of course raised by Sauron.

Please continue. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
