Sting 20 questions on ME

OK here is a new idea! Instead of asking a question I will think of an answer. The answer can be a Person, a place, an event or an item of ME - then its up to you guys to ask questions - BUT ONLY questions that can be answered YES or NO - that way you can make your way to the correct answer.

The one that first guesses what I am thinking of, has earned the right to 'think of the next answer' .

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE:

Is it a person? - NO
Is it a object? - YES
Is it a building? - NO
Is it a weapon? - NO
Was it possesed by a man in the 3rd age? - NO
Was it made in the 1st age? - NO
Was it made in Valinor? - YES
Was it made by Fëanor? - YES

IS IT A SILMARIL? - YES!!!

And so on and so on... Remember that the clues that you achieve can be read by everyone - so though you may be really really close, someone else may pass you by and find the correct answer...

OK IM THINKING ABOUT SOMETHING! KEEP 'EM COMING.

I meant "Man" as opposed to "elf" or "dwarf", wise-guy. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I assume that "person" would cover all 3 - or elves and men at least.
