Sting First Age Trivia

Let's try to follow the standard trivia rules on this thread and keep it in the First Age.

When Glaurung first came forth from Angband, who fought with him?

If you mean who fought against him, it was the dwarves of the Blue Mountains.
If you mean who fought alongside him, i believe it was Gothmog, Lord of the Balrogs...

Actually, Azaghal and the dwarves of Belegost came later.

I'm asking who fought against him - sorry for the confusion.

I think it was Fingon who first fought Glaurung.

You may ask.

The armies of the Noldor under Fingolfin and Maedrhos were victorious in the Dagor Aglareb.

Maeglin, who was cast from the walls of Gondolin onto the Caragdûr like Eöl, his father.

Heh, we lock horns again Lindolirian.

Here's a nasty tricksy one.

How many maiar following Melkor have names in the Silmarillion and who are they ?

What do you mean by "following Melkor"?

The Maiar mentioned are Ilmare, Eonwe, Osse, Uinen, Melian, Olorin (Gandalf/Mithrandir), Sauron (Gorthaur the Cruel), Arien, Tilion, Curunir, Radagast, "and others of the Istari who went into the east of Middle-earth, and do not come into these tales."

There they are, in order. 13, if you count the indirectly named Alatar and Pallando.

Also, you might've wanted "the Valaraukar, the scourges of fire that in Middle-earth were called the Balrogs, demons of terror" included.

Well, for one Sauron, and also the Valaraukar. It is mentioned that Ossë followed Melkor for a time, but repented and served Ulmo once more.

Correct. The key word is following, ie continuing to serve and not followed, served for a period of time.

Ungoliant did serve Melkor once but had disowned him to be her own mistress. It could be argued that Thuringwethil may be included as it specifically mentions that she was 'wont to fly in vampires form', indicating that she took the form of a vampire bat voluntarily.

If I am correct, then I will proceed. I will also proceed if I am not correct, so who cares.

Question: Who did Finrod love, and what kind was she from?

Okay, this one's easy because I'm too lazy to think of a harder one. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

What secret name does Aredhel give to Maeglin?

Who was the only in Feanor's army to speak against the burning of the white ships?

Close guess, but Fingon was not in Feanor's army, but his father's, Fingolfin's. It was someone close to Fingon, though.

Yes, it was. Meadhros and Fingon was close friends, and Meadhros did not approve of Feänor burning the ships at Losgar.

What did the people of Middle-earth call Vingilot when it first set sail in the heavens, and what did that name mean?
