It is not the Brilthor, Bree, or Bifur.

The only answer I could think of for paavo's question (and if this isn't what you meant, I'll give you the next letter) is Brego, who was made into a horse in the movie. It's not him either.

Question

Quote:
to Evisse and Saucepan man: it's not Shelob.
Quote:
if you don't get the anwer your looking for you can simply ask the same question again.
Paavo, doesn't that mean that you should have given separate answers to the questions that Evisse and I asked? I know that this was the last game, but I just want to be clear on the rules.

Anyway, as to Firefoot's clue:

Is it a mountain?

that's completely true. it just seemed that you were both after Shelob so I thought I'd answer to both of you. I did intend to say that if the answer doesn't satisfy you, just ask the same question again, but somehow I didn't.
sorry for the confusion

And Firefoot you are one shrewd woman Brego is excatly what I was looking for! And I thought I was clever and would get the next letter...


EDIT: lets see how you manage this! is it a sword that talks?
