Re: Odd man out continued...

Frodo never killed anyone in the War of the Ring?

Re: My last post on this topic.

Please ignore the above. I hadn't realised that there was more than one page, and so was guessing at the last one posted on Page 1.

Only Frodo didn't get married?

So the Universe is not as you thought. You better change the way you think, for you surely cannot change the Universe.

Denethor didn't have a close relative in the Company?

Bilbo didn't have a close relative in the Battle of Pelennor Fields?

I'm not going to look it up, but I thought I would say that I would have guessed what Scuzzle said... about Bilbo the only one not being a father.

Oh! Welcome to the Downs, ScuzzleButt!

Hmmm It's so seldom that we see you in here BW so I'll give it to you [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] The Precise answer was that Only Bilbo didn't have a son present at the counsil of Elrond - Proceed, please [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

They all held a palantir (even if only for a short moment), but Gandalf was the only one not to look into one.

These are all good suggestions, but it's a bit trickier. Turambar's suggestion was on the right tracks.

Think of the women in their lives (not necessarily wives).

Was it that only Finrod did not lose a woman he loved, as Turgon lost Elenwë and Finwë and Feanor lost Miriel?

Yep, that's it.

In Finrod's case it was actually other way around - Amarie didn't go to exile, and so she lost him.
(Just by the way, does anyone know whether they got married after Finrod came back from exile through Mandos?)

Frodo - the only one with only nine fingers - or the only one that could speak end understand elvish (to some degree) - or for not producing a bloodline heir.

3 of them did something in a certain way, the 4th is not recorded to have done so.

I've seen this one before - and I cant seem to get about it...

well - Isildur didn't cross the Grinding Ice og Helkaraxe, but thats too obvious. and He was never High-King of the Noldor.

on the other hand Fingolfin was the only one to be burried???

It's not a great Q because it has a "subjective" element but 3 of them are renowned for doing something in a certain way and the 4th (hopefully !) is not.

I'll just give the answer and we can move on to a better question. Fingon (rescue of Maedhros), Isildur (rescue of a fruit of Nimloth) and Fingolfin (challenge to Morgoth) all undertook a heoic act, ALONE. Turgon is not especially renowned for doing so (at least I don't think so.)

Ask one, Telchar !

Hmm the word resque came to mind, but it didnt fit fingolfin that well, as for heroic hmmm Yes well I always thought it pretty heroic when Turgon Marched to the Nirnaeth, risking the secret of his hidden city... But OK it still was a good question [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Try this one:
Tuor
Elrond
Dior
Celegorm

HINT: it has nothing to do with Family and bloodline.
