Bombur was the most exhausted from being pinched and prodded, but Balin seemed the least drowsy since he had enough wits about him to follow Bilbo's plan.

Lindo - 5
Rune - 3
Tuor - 1

10. Which Dwarf was most often carrying Bilbo around?

An easy one, since Lindo's already won anyway.

Good gracious, that Dori must have enjoyed being a pack horse. Or grumbling.

No worries Rune, that's the glory of the quizzes: there's always another chance.

The next topic is Elves, but this is gonna be pretty broad. Not just about single Elves, but anything that has to do with them and their culture.

1. What do Elves typically give one another at their betrothal?

Sorry, Rune, I tried to post questions when no one (or more than one person) was online to make it fair.

I know I've heard this before and I think I know where to find it, but unfortunately that would not be a book that I own... So a guess: rings?

So you are testing wether we have read Morgoth’s Ring or not ?

Well Rune, I suppose on that question I was... but this one comes from a different source:

2. Of what house of Gondolin was Duilin?

Finrod built Barad Nimras on the coast of Beleriand, to protect against an attack from the sea.

Voronwe had already lived there, so I wouldn't really count him as on outsider.
