Hmmm
Maybe as simple as:
Ungoliant - Shelob - Sam/frodo - Pippin - Bergil

Tch-Oh! Telchar found another way. I'd had
Ungoliant - Shelob - Gollum - Faramir - Bergil .. but there it is ... Telchar takes up the baton once more.

Perfect - I hadn't even seen that one!

BtW could somebody clarify the rules to me? For ex. must there be a explicit statement that two persons interacted or are you allowed to assume that they did???

For ex. Melian - directly to Olorin - Grima ??? or Melian - Irmo - Olorin - Grima ??? would they hold in court???

and to weird things: What about Melkor - Thorondor - Gwaihir - Sam ?

As a matter of fact I'm not too clear on the rules myself. I tend to make a 'link' when there has been a meeting or directly implied meeting (i.e. 2 characters in the same place at the same time) between 2 characters. I probably wouldn't connect Melian to Olorin unless I really had to, even though it's very likely that they met.

I'd hesitate to make the link between Thorondor and Gwaihir, since Gwaihir was only descended from Thorondor but didn't actually meet him. But that's just my opinnion, and I'm not sure what BW's original intentions were.

Anyway, the next one is:

Tar-Anrion -> Anrion

Good one!

Tar-Anarion - Tar Ancalime - Tar Aldarion - Gil-galad - Elendil - Anarion

I would probably leave out Tar Ancalime and Elendil ...

Do you mean Mahtan, the Noldorin smith? If so then:

Ibun -> Turin -> Orodreth -> Finarfin -> Fanor -> Mahtan

This is the best I can do here.

Working in the assumption that Galadriel was there when Celeborn and Thranduil met, Joy's answer is fine. Personally I would have had Bilbo instead of Thranduil, with everything else the same.

Ask away, Joy.

Legolas - Beren - Dior - Elwing - Elros - Vardamir? Probably wrong, I'm assuming Legolas met Beren in Doriath.

Gimli, don't you think it's a bit hasty to dismiss an earlier question and answer after only six hours of waiting? I can't stay up all night waiting for someone to answer my question on a message board.

Lindolirian: I guess your answer is all right - I'm not that sure about the link between Thranduil and Beleg, though. On the other hand, it's quite likely that they met in Doriath, since they were both highly respected Sindar. The route I had in mind is Tom Bombadil -> Frodo -> Galadriel -> Thingol -> Beleg.

He's assuming that since they both lived in Doriath they met.
