I would swear Bilbo called him "Smaug the Golden" somewhere in his praise, but apparently not. There is a possibility that he was gold, and that like his treasure Bilbo just saw him "red-stained in the ruddy light", but Occam's razor suggests he was red-gold.

... and rainbow underneath, of course!

At least we know Smaug took the lesson of Glaurung to heart, though how he heard about it is a mystery. Perhaps Morgoth broadcast his stalking of the Children of Hurin to all Angband, in the first reality TV show of Arda?

He is red. The images do not lie.




Also, in a freaky coincidence, the site just spewed his quote.

A simple one:


Soul of flame,
Dark my fame,
Fateful is my name.
My hair burns,
My rage churns,
As dark cloud my mood shows.

Easy. It's the dude who started it all (aka Feanor aka Curufinwe)

Thought Feanor would come up. But no! It's a different very easy answer.

That I did not expect to come up at all. No. Not even close. Look in other places for the answer. This riddle is supposed to be very straightforward, plus a tiny bit of poetic license.

Well, it does describe his life, and his rage towards Morgoth and co.


But if he's not it, how about Smaug? Does Smaug's hair burn? Cos if so, he's a perfect fit.

Closer but still sooo far.

You're falling into the same trap with all of my riddles. Why do you assume the speaker literally speaks? It's a riddle, not a documentary. And as I told you, this particular one isn't meant to be difficult - it's not referencing a million related things, it's just one description which fits one answer, in some ways less and in some ways more literally than your guesses.

Because objects don't have hair? Nor do they rage.

Unless it's a 'living object', but only 'living objects' are Gurthang and Troll's purse.

So there's no mention of wings () but could it be a balrog? They do literally have both burning hair and a dark cloud. And they don't speak, certain movies aside.

In fact, given 'fateful is my name', I'd go so far as to specifically guess DURIN'S BANE.

hS

PS: Are those two really the only talking objects? It seems like the sort of thing Tolkien would use a lot... does the Ring speak in the books, or just the movie?

Remember how, when I made a riddle about Boromir's horn announcing great beginnings, you insisted that only people-type answers could do that? And I made you a whole list of non-humanoid things that could do the job, including animals, items, and places?


It is not Durin's Bane, but Huey is correct in focusing on the fateful name. And correct in assuming the literal dark cloud.

So you mentioned trees, which have hair (ie. leaves). A tree of some kind?

When did I mention trees in conjunction with this riddle? Not a tree. Nor Fingon's heart - if that is what you intended as the answer in your last post.

Yes, but that list is not exclusive and not meant to be an exhaustive checklist for solving my riddles, just an illustration of thinking outside the box.

No to Barrow Wights.

To make this easier: the answer is NOT humanoid.

I just figured it was poetic imagery, but now that I know about Pele's Hair, I'll be picturing Mt. Doom with beautiful locks from now on.

Well, I was going to ask what I have in my pocket, but we all know that's a terribly unfair (not even) riddle, so I guess I'll just have to come up with something else. I'll make this easy on me and everyone else. It turns out I'm terrible at coming up with riddles.

Right, so it's either Sam or Beleg, and since not many people are familiar with Silm, my guess is Sam.

Never mind, I just thought of it.

I was brought forth
And in turn, death I brought
I spilled the wrong blood
All because of love

(Don't pay too much attention to the third line, it's a poetic description and was put there to complete the rhyme.)

Gurthang?

Specifically, before its reforging. [Checks] Anglachel, then. It was brought forth from Doriath by Beleg out of love for Turin, but was also the direct cause of Beleg's death (it woke Turin - and indeed, by spilling his blood).

Nope. This one is factual, but somewhat sneaky. And I told you the third line is poetic, as in the speaker didn't technically spill blood, but...

Could it be the Arkenstone? Bilbo brought it forth from the Lonely Mountain, and because of love for Thorin stole it and started the Battle of Five Armies, which led to Thorin's death.
