Hey Perky, any confirmation? I think I'm probably wrong because of the second clue [(what) is foreshadowing!], but it'd be nice too know .

Time to resurrect this thread...

I'll be asking 5 questions, of different types (i.e. riddles, straight questions, etc.). Anyone can answer the first four questions, but only those with points can answer the last one. The one who answers the last question correctly gets to set the next set of questions if they can correctly guess the theme.

I've been babbling for long enough; here's the first question-

1. Please tell me who is an Elven lore reteller of nice demeanour.

The first letter in each word of that sentence spelt 'Elrond' .

2. Less loved than the Faithful Jewel; read into the minds of Men yet did not scorn them as fools.

3.
He was the most reluctant to leave,
To no home would he cleave.
Through water and fire
He befriended the halflings of the Shire.
Seemingly the weakest,
He united all the meekest,
And was the last to come,
Sent by the mightiest under the One.

4. A cat, a rabbit, an aardvark, an iguana, falcon, beaver, a Thorondor.

The order of these is correct, yet they should be taller. Arrange these properly, and use the letters to find the name of a famous traveller.

Good luck .

Nope- arrange them in a suitable order, and see what's spelt. The animals have no relation to each other, it's the letters.

No, no, no; that was just a hint of how to arrange the clues. I put Frodo in there as an example- that find-a-word isn't the one which the answer is hidden in. The clues (i.e. an aardvark, etc.) form the find-a-word, and then you have to find this famous traveller. Please show me how you got the answer also when you get it .

Bilbo gave Frodo the "prize" of the riddle contest, the Ring, but only after Gandalf persuaded him.

Hmm... Elrond, Faramir, Gandalf, Aragorn and Bilbo. They all withstood the temptation of the Ring/let it go?

Well I'm back from camp now, and while I was thinking that they were all loremasters, your answer is certainly correct so you're up.
