Finaly you got it!

Gethron it was. . .I chose Gethron over Grithnir, because Grithnir sounds like Glitnir an Icelandic bank for whom I did some very dull work. Well, not for them, but for some of their supliers.

What was the Titel of the part of Narn Hin Hurin in which you found their names?

well I told you that they where travel companions. . . and the Danish is called "Turins afrejse" so I figured the German would be called "Turins abreise" (reise and rejse meaning travel)

You are German, right?

not really
I am a Romanian, living in Germany, and all my books are in English
I like English to German when it comes to Tolkien, because it's the original, just as he wrote it

anyway...to keep it similar, but clearly easier

a companion of Thror

Congrats

btw it was with Nar that Thror travelled to Moria. There he was killed by Azog, and after the Orc branded his name in Thror's head he sent Nar back to the Dwarves to give them the message that any other Dwarves that would come to Moria would also suffer that fate

Just one question. Would you let me take the thread if I tell you more than 40 persons who I surely know are not the right answer? I just spent a lot of time in the books with a calculator, and I really didn't happen to find anyone who would fit this.

I guess it's a lot harder than it seems, eh?
