my answer is Master aka Tom bombadil.

"No one has ever caught old Tom walking in the forest, wading in the water, leaping on the hill-tops under light and shadow. He has no fear. Tom Bombadil is master."

Well done, paavo. You have forcibly extracted the next letter from me.

It is 'R'.

Fingolfin II, it's up to you whether you want to put your question again.

It's not Mardil (although I have given him as an answer earlier so, if you have a different one, I'll concede the next letter).

Well, that's pretty vague, so I'll just say it's not the March of Maedhros.


Quote:

It's not Marigold, no.


Quote:

It's not Marwhini.
