Well, that works (obviously).

But can you make a Maia-free version? (Call it another bonus challenge).

Now that's pushing it.



But I tell you what. If you post a new riddle soon, I'll find a way to do it.

And.....there is no other way. Either I have to use Galadriel or it becomes more than six steps.

No, no, I think we can do it (drawing shamelessly on your prior work):

1. Bill was sent on the quest by
2. Elrond, who was the herald of
3. Gil-Galad, who was the son of
4. Orodreth, who was king over
5. Turin, who was kind of mean to
6. Mim.

I wanted to go via Legolas, but you have to use both Thranduil and Oropher to get a confirmed connection to Thingol, and then you don't have space to reach Mim.

Oh, but can we do:

1. Bill was best buds with
2. Sam, who met
3. Celeborn, who was kin to
4. Thingol, who sent out
5. Beleg, who was hated by
6. Mim?

I'm not sure if the Celeborn-Thingol link is strong enough, though.

Huey, I guess yours work, but what if I told you it can be done without using Sam (or any member of the Fellowship) either?.

Well, I got it correct the first time, and the rest are just the bonus challenges. So, er, could I continue the game or not?

I would say 'Elrond isn't in the Fellowship'. But okay, how about this?

1. Bill was present when the hobbits met
2. Glorfindel, who was fellow Lord of Gondolin with
3. Tuor, who once on the road met
4. Turin, who was still fairly mean to
5. Mim.

I can't see any way to get anywhere from Barliman Butterbur or Bill Ferny - they seem to lead only back to the Fellowship or Maiar. The Nazgul only take me to Glorfindel again. And I really wanted to use the Watcher in the Water, which took Oin, letting us reach into The Hobbit - but the quickest ways I could pull that off were Bill-Watcher-Oin-Dain-Durin's Bane-Morgoth-Hurin-Mim and Bill-Watcher-Oin-Thranduil-Thingol-Turin-Mim, which are 8 and 7 respectively.

Well, I guess that works too. But what I was thinking of was-

1. Bill carried Sam to the Havens to meet
2. Círdan who, back in the Elder Days, sent
3. Gelmir and Arminas to Nargothrond, where they spoke to
4. Túrin who as you mention was really rather mean to
5. Mîm.

Beor and Bereg didn't have a direct contact, though. Nor are they directly related.

Well Bereg was Beor's great-grandson. But let's try this:

Maeglin was the son of
Eol, who was scorned by
Curufin, brother of
Maedhros, who took into service
Amlach, whose Melkorian doppelganger supported
Bereg

My assumption has been that the 'relatives' rule is to account for 'they obviously met, because they're siblings/parent and child, but the book never says'.

Of course, opinions have differed... I've spent a bit of time looking at the early parts of this thread, and I definitely saw someone attempt to directly link Aragorn with Earendil.

Hmm... how about this?

1. Lobelia bought Bag-End from
2. Frodo, who was rescued by
3. Glorfindel, who served under
4. Turgon, who was very fond of
5. Tuor, who was the messenger of
6. Ulmo.

I'd need to check the book to see if Goldilocks and Tuor interacted directly, but can definitely hit it in 6 through Turgon.

That works fine, although my path was

1 Lobelia was thrown into the Lockholes with
2 Will Whitfoot, who preceded in office
3 Sam, who was at the Council with
4 Galdor, who was an emissary from
5 Cirdan, who spoke with
6 Ulmo

So a little while back I started mapping all of the connections that have been made so far in this thread. 13 pages in, most of the Fellowship have made a bunch of appearances, and have been cross-linked with each other and with the likes of Elrond and Galadriel.

... except Boromir. In 13 pages, he only appeared once - and that linking Denethor to Aragorn, when they actually met directly.

I want to give Boromir his due, but I also like the whole 'linking two people with the same name' thing. Now, I could ask you to link him to Boromir of Ladros... except that that would just leave him sitting uselessly on the end of a chain. What's needed is for Boromir to be within a chain, and therefore:

Denethor II of Gondor > Denethor, King of Ossiriand

... by way of Boromir.

1. Tar-Miriel was pals with

3. Gil-Galad, who was the son of
4. Orodreth, who totally adored
5. Turin, who was the son of
6. Hurin Thalion, Lord of the House of Hador.

Okay, I am up for trying this.

I wonder if I could remove Finrod too, as I imagine Beren and Orodreth have met......

I think I had something like that, yeah. I think either Finrod or Orodreth is specifically mentioned as hanging out with Turgon in Valinor, so that lets you chop out one step, but overall this works fine.
