that would be 'Laer cu Beleg', which he made at the lakeside of Ivrin.

When Morgoth was cast into Void, he got a collar on his neck. What was that color made of?

The collar was his Iron crown beat around his neck.

And remember to wait for confirmation to see if you are correct before asking another question.

P.S.: if this is correct, this will be the new question: what did Felagund and Beren do wrong that made Sauron sent to waylay them.

Once again lathspell, you should wait for verification....lucky you're right.

In answer to your question, I think Felagund and Beren disguised themselves as Orcs, in order to pass between Ered Wethrin.

Sauron doubted who they were, since they went with haste and didn't reported there deeds, as was commanded by Morgoth, for anyone who passed that way. So he sent to waylay them.

My apologies, Pallando B.C. and Beren87! I did not read Beren87's message until today, for I was away for some time and in haste when I returned to this Quiz. But I have read it now, so I shall wait for verification the next time.
My motto shall now be: Do not be hasty [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Your answer is quite correct, good Ithron Luin.

Ithron is Wizard. The Sindarin words for the Blue Wizards is 'Ithryn Luin'. Though, if I'm correct [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img], you are just one person it becomes Blue Wizard and therefore 'Ithron Luin'.

And now for the answer to your question.
That would be Lalaith, daughter of Hurin and Morwen and sister of Turin, who died when the Evil Breath came to Dor-lomin.

Thank you, Pallando.

Here's the new question:
What was the second name of Holman, who was the gardener of Bilbo and to whom Hamfast Gamgee, Sam's father, was apprenticed?

I think 'Eru Iluvatar' is most likely to get that title.

No, I'm afraid not. Mithrandir can be translated as Greay Pilgrim or Grey Wanderer. Gandalf translates rather different.
It's in UT.
