White-Hand Ummm . . .

I've found a way, but it requires using Saruman and Sauron:

Fréa -> Fréaláf -> Saruman -> Sauron -> Ar-Pharazôn -> Ar-Zimraphel

The Eye Sorry, wrong.

I think the confusion stems from the first element of the puzzle.

Right. OK, during Eorl's ride to Calenardhon, there was a chap with him, a senior commander of his army, perhaps, by the name of Éomund. He can be found in The Chronicles of Cirion and Eorl, Unfinished Tales.

Dark-Eye Ugh.

This is tougher than I thought.

This is my answer:

Éomund -> Galadriel (through the river mist) -> Éomer -> Éomund

Anyone can take this thread.

Anyone can take this thread.


Though that line of thought is very creative, it might be just a little too creative. Specially if you read the rules on page one of this thread. Offen in these threads the connection between Galadriel and Eorl is discussed to be valid as a link in this game, but is always dismissed - the same goes for any connection for using dead people, such as Baldor. If using dead people was allowed then another correct answer to the Eomund / Eomund question could be: Eomund - Elendil - Eomer - Eomund... But dead ppl is no good - so there you have it.
The only correct way to go about it is family ties and wizards ;o)

Eomund - Cirion* - Húrin II - Orodreth - Egalmoth - Beren - Saruman - Eomer - Eomund

*) We must assume that all stewards meet at least their grandchildren...

Hi Nilp

Its difficult to tell right from wrong - basicly it's all about how freely one chooses to interpret the rules...

Have I said you can't use wizards?

The interesting point in this question is, that there is a direct qoute that says that a certain wizard met, in this case, a specific king of Rohan.

Only with that knowledge can one solve the problem in the shortest way.

I know that the first post of this thread advices to avoid the use of wizards, but this I thought, was a nice exception.

Cheers T

You're up Nilp.

I'll set my regulations and restrictions in my questions. Solve them under those conditions and everything will be fine.

Question Well . . .

The 'No Wizards' rule is part of the original rules. So to cancel it, one must actually state that it could be ignored.

Enedwaith . . .

Aranwë -> Aranarth

hmmm....

Aranwe -> Voronwe -> Tuor -> Elrond -> Cirdan -> Aranarth

I orginally had Tuor -> Earendil -> Elrond, but I assumed Tuor would see his Grand son before he left Middle Earth.

...but then I'm also assuming I'm correct :P

...but then I'm also assuming I'm correct :P

Actually, Milord Felagund, I think that that may be an incorrect answer. I believe that it's generally accepted that Tuor left Middle-Earth PRIOR to the birth of Elrond and Elros. Checking with the Silmarillion leaves it a LITTLE unclear, but Tuor and Idril's departure is listed at the end of "The Fall of Gondolin" chapter, while the birth of the twins occurs at the start of "The Voyages of Earendil". Furthermore, I believe that comparisom with the History of Middle-Earth will bear me out.

T'is a minor quibble, however, since I believe that one can skip right over Earendil and Elrond and go: Tuor -> Cirdan. It says in the "Fall of Gondolin" that mariners of Cirdan came to the aid of the refugees (including Tuor), and it seems likely that at some point, Tuor would have met Cirdan. If not, Earendil certainly did, since the two of them worked together quite closely.

Just a quibble, and by no means let me interrupt the game. I just thought that since this game is based on sure connections, one ought to discourage Tuor -> Elrond ere it became prevalent.

An interesting point indeed. My main source of quick information in reguards to Middle Earth Fun and Games is the Encyclopedia of Arda . According to it, Tuor left c. 560. and Elrond was born c. 525. The c. makes it a grey area, but I think they would have met, although it probably wouldn't have been worth mention in the Silmarilion. Now....Theoden --> Bolg!
