Hoity Toity's turn to ask!! Yay!!!

Gimli got 3 hairs, Gollum 6 teeth and Sauron 9 Nazgul.
The next number in the series would be 12.

Who had 12 what? (May be more than one answer)

What were the seven names of the palantir stones? (including the ones lost...)

Re: New String

Well, let me venture a try. I don't know any names, but I can give locations.

Not including the The Master Stone in Valinor
(1)the chief one in Osgiliath &gt;&gt;&gt; lost in the Anduin during the Kin-Strife
(2)Minas Ithil &gt;&gt;&gt; captured by Nazgul (Sauron used it then)
(3)Minas Anor &gt;&gt;&gt; Denthor had fun with this one
(4)Orthanc &gt;&gt;&gt; Wormtongue tossed this one from the tower
(5)Annuminas &gt;&gt;&gt; Fornost &gt;&gt;&gt; lost in Forochel
(6)Elostirion (the Stone of Elendil)&gt;&gt;&gt; taken to Aman with Gandalf, Frodo, etc.
(7)Amon Sul &gt;&gt;&gt; Fornost &gt;&gt;&gt; lost in Forochel

Re: Ferr!!!

I don`t think they had individual names. As far as I can recall, they are always referred to by location, e.g.
`Anor-stone` or `Ithil-stone`.

Look into the http://www.fortunecity.co.uk/library/classiccourt/77/Mirror of Desire.</a> </p>

Re: Ferr!!!

That's how I understood it, too, Taimar (see my answer above)... But I hope Ferr returns soon to tell us what he had in mind.

Apparently so. Maybe the palantiri have secret names?
