Close, but not quite. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Not Eldar because of the broadness it covers and not Morequendi or the other one I can't spell, because, well, I can't spell. Think a shorter name and another branch of Elves.

I can't believe I put Nandor twice, just overlook that. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

The Thains of the Shire:

you're missing Bucca of the Marish, Gorhendad Oldbuck, 10 unspecified Oldbucks, Fortinbras I and II, Ferumbras III, Isengrim I and 8 unspecified Tooks, likely including all the Is for which there are later IIs and IIIs [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img].

Well, I'll go for the obvious and say the hills before Morannon, the connection being that they are all the sites of battles depicted in LotR.

If that's not it, a hint perhaps? [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

*bump* Trying to guess the riddle: - for what it's worth:

Expanding on Mr Saucepan's idea:
...the Cracks of Doom. (desperate situations when victory seemed futile, but which were saved by a miraculous turn of events)?

Morgoth. Each one had a hand injured because they would not let go of a treasure...a silmarillion or the One Ring.

I am absolutely drawing a blank concerning Faramir's disobeying someone. But that is the correct reasoning for my list. Beregond was the missing item on my list.
So, it your turn with my compliments

Oh, duh...now I remember. When he allowed Frodo and Sam to go free..or am I mixing up the movie with the book??? I can't remember.

yes i was thinking when he allowed frodo and sam to go free, although it's made more explicit in the movie it's also in the book. But yeah, I guess Beregond is the more obvious guess. I guess I too am being brainwashed by the movie
Anyway - here's the next:

Tom Bombadil
Aragorn
Gandalf

White-Hand Reasons?

Please folks, give reasons for your answers. Otherwise we could all just keep guessing Middle-earth characters until someone gets it. This is a game, not a character listing exercise.

no one guessed yet...

I guess this is partly my fault for being so vague...it could indeed be anyone and it has resorted to guessing.
Ok, a huge hint: Names.

Another missing one from this list would be Turin, but Saruman is correct as well of course.
