White-Hand Gollum?

A followed B?

If that's wrong, a clue?

Nope.

One of the names is not being used in the "traditional" sense. Once you figure out which, the answer should be pretty obvious.

Denethor. Beor swore allegence to Finrod just as Pippin did to Denethor.

how right you are, Nilp.

Precisely. There are several instances of men/ents seeing hobbits for the first time, but it was Beregond I was looking for.

Congrats. I thought that was going to be much harder.

Thank you, Sophia.

OK, here goes (it will be a bit of a stretch):

Mīm is to Andróg

as

______________ is to Gollum.

Hmmm, maybe Faramir? Because Mīm cursed Androg and Faramir cursed Gollum("may death find you swiftly, if you do not serve him (Frodo) well") -- and both came true.

Thumbs up Y'know what?

I forgot all about this thread, and my question.

In light of that, and Evisse's convincing answer, she gets the thread.

Your turn.

White-Hand The Ring of Felagund?

The White Tree is the symbol of the Edain's friendship with the Eldar (I think).

The Ring of Felagund (not Barahir ) is the smybol of Finrod's frienship with Barahir and all his kin.

The White Tree was the device on Aragorn's banner

as

A harp and quiver
were the devices on Finrod's?

Thumbs up

Bullroarer (Bandobras) Took, perhaps. That's probably not how you spell it, but... ...

I say this because Killi was a relation to Thorin on his mother’s side, the same way Bilbo was related to Bullroarer Took on his Mother's side.

White Tree Silly Nilp

I'm assuming you meant Isengrim Took, since that is the right answer.

I'd have taken any of the Old Took's children (except obviously Belladonna) for this answer, although I only was thinking of Donnamira and Mirabella when I wrote the question.

Silly of me to forget that Ole Gerontius had 13 children.

Your go, Mr. Felagund.

Question "Silly" is correct.

Sure. Right. Like we'd believe that.

Gondolin is to Finwė

__________ is to Orodreth.

The usual skewed relation.

The Forest of Brethil?

(Turgon, Finwe's heir, died in Gondolin, while Finduilas, Orodreth's only child and heir died near the forest of Brethil.)

Hopefully I got it right, this one's a toughie!

Thumbs up I could be evil . . .

. . . but maybe not today.

I'll accept Forest of Brethil, as it's close enough to the answer I want.

Gondolin was where Fingolfin, Finwė's child, was buried.

Haudh-en-Elleth was where Finduilas, Orodreth's child, was buried.

Wait. Now that think of it, technically, Fingolfin was buried outside Gondolin.

Ha. Whatever. Your turn, Evisse!

White Tree

*chuckles*

Cirith Ungol, in both places the person was not terribly happy about being underground/in tunnels.

Not an event though, so likely not right.

Actually I must have been high on something when I wrote that, because neither the first nor the second are events. Both are places, but Cirith Ungol is not the one.
