Thanks Beren, I seemingly misplaced this thread. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Who was the first to use symbols or signs to record song and speech?

Who quotes Rumil saying that the Valarin tongue sounds
Quote:
like the glitter of long swords, like the rush of leaves in a great wind or the fall of stones in the mountains.

Mortals were not allowed to enter the Undying Lands so the Valar banned Nķmenůreans from sailing so far west that they could not see their coast anymore.

Feanor's second son was considered second best at what and to whom?

Ah, excellent! Wonderful! It is comforting to know that I know my son's family.

He became second-best after a one who lost something later came in. He took the coward's path, yet became famed throughout history for what he was best at.
