Yep.

Here, a hint... add Prince Imrahil to the list. So

Boromir
Elrond
Ar-Pharazon
Arathorn
Imrahil

Try that.

Well, you said this was easy, so I've stopped toiling over all the complicated things that just don't work and have decided that they all have dark colored hair. Or elvish blood.... arghhh... *trying to think of easy things*....

Ah, I knew it. The easy ones are the hardest for me cause I always think to hard.

ok I think this one is easy too, so, I'll try to make it harder by giving other names for the folks involved:

the father of Bolg
Wingfoot
Ironfoot
the brother of Pimpernel Took

In this one, I'll tell you what they said, then you have to figure out who they are and what they have in common... Good luck!

"Further counsel I cannot give, nor may I go further on your road."

"Haha, he comes too late!"

"There's something mighty queer behind this."

I feel like I'm always the one who kills the good threads with really hard questions. But we did have a great spell of easy ones back there. C'mon are we getting lazy? Think!

Hint:
the first quote is from the Sil.
the second quote is from the Lay of Leithan.
the third quote is from FotR.

Cool?

2 versions:
-each of them was named 'elf-friend';

Now, are both wrong? [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

Hrm... I saw in the Very Easy Trivia thread that you have not read UT. It is in there. I'll give you a hint though... Hallas was the son of Cirion. That probably won't give you much unless you know what Cirion did... Sorry, I don't want to give away too much.
