White-Hand One Thing in Common (cont)

This is a continuation of One Thing in Common, the previous thread having been closed as a result of its length.

The rules, originally posted by Lostgaeriel, are as follows:

Quote:
In this game, you must identify the one thing in common for the persons (or things or places) in the list. Of course, there may be more than one thing in common and the quizzer may not have thought of all of them. Quizzer's discretion as to whether alternate answer will be accepted.
Lindolirian correctly answered the last question on the previous thread, and so it is his turn to ask the next.

This isn't that hard... or is the hardest part scrolling down and looking at old topics? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Is it Hurin Thalion. Hurin is the only one who killed a dwarf [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Is it that they were all taken captive?

Pippin was captured, along with Merry, by Saruman's Uruk-Hai.
Hurin Thalion was captured by Morgoth's forces and taken to Angbad.
Tharkun was taken captive by Saruman and held at Orthanc.

Saucepan Man fell for the trick! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] That was the answer that was to lead you away from the real one that Turambar gave. They all killed trolls. Proceed Master of Doom!

I posted this so long ago that I'm not even sure I'm remembering the answer correctly. But if I am, a hint for Túrin would be: Beleg.

Someone they loved died because of them?

Regarding the previous one, when did Hurin kill a troll? And Tharkun is Gandalf, right?

I guess this is what you're looking for....
Quote:
Last of all Húrin stood alone. Then he cast aside his shield, and wielded an axe two-handed; and it is sung that the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-guard of Gothmog until it withered
And Tharkun/Gandalf had some dealings with some three trolls in The Hobbit ;o)

I think I'll give my answer in an attempt to revive this thread.

They were all song writers. Each of Beren and Lúthien wrote a song about the other; Túrin wrote a song for Beleg, and Finrod wrote a song for the first men, as well as the song of power against sauron.

This is one thin in common, and secondly as a hint - race has nothing to do with it. Some might find it easy, but I think this one is in the tougher department [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]
