Saruman, because he liked pipe weed, perhaps?

This is reallllllllly far out but, Sauron, because he was in Mordor, and Mt. Doom was expelling all that sulfuric fumes, so he could have been entoxicated?!?

I'm trying to think of a likely bad guy that was chewed out by Gandalf...I expect you would most often find a baddie speechless after a verbal beating from Gandalf... A guess, for sure: Denethor.

Or is he even an actual 'Bad Guy'. Hmmmm...he seems to fit fairly well...

Boromir? I don't know if he technically counts as a bad guy.

This is going movie, but is it Saruman? Because Saruman is giving a lecture about embracing the ring or his own destruction, and then he says his thing about him not sharing power and ditching him?

None of the above!
BTW, I don't quiz the movies unless I specifically say that I am, which is rare.

Who took command of the forces of Mordor after Merry and Eowyn tore up on the Lord of the Nazgul?

Three bad guys are known to have killed two dwarves each from the family tree in Appendix A. Who were they?

Dark-Eye

Well, Azog (I'm pretty sure) is correct...Thror and Nain.
The Bolrog, I think, is correct too...Durin and Nain I.
I also found this in Appendix A:
Quote:
At last Dain I, together with Fror, his second son, was slain at the doors of his hall by a great cold-drake.
I have no clue if that is what you were looking for though.

Question

Yay!
Ok, an easy one:
What injuries did Shagrat sustain during the fight in the Tower of Cirith Ungol?
Good luck, and don't solve it too fast!

Too fast!
Yes. It was also "scored as if by rending claws," but since I didn't specify two, you're good to go!

Oops, sorry. I tend to forget about threads if I don't have the time to ask a new question immediately.

How many times did Gandalf encounter wolves, as far as we know?

Yeah I forget about threads a lot too, I just happened to be in the second QuizRoom page cause I just got back from not being here a while and saw this one...
Gandalf encountered wolves at:
  • Glade where he burned them with pinecones
  • Battle of the Five Armies
  • Foothills of Caradhras
  • During the Battle of Helm's Deep when he gathered Erkenbrand and his men
Possibly I could add in when he escaped from the Orthanc, but he was many leagues away when they issued to pursue him, so it doesn't really count. I'd say four.

I hadn't thought about the Helm's Deep one, so you get a cookie for that one. Please continue.

After searching for it, the only site I found was in Italian. Anyway, I think it's Saruman, since Methon Amon is Methedras.

No, I don't, but it said Methedras in the same sentance, so I took a guess. Where do you get all those strange names from anyway?

How many orcs attacked Isildur on the Gladden Fields?

Isildur went with his three sons and a guard of two hundred men. The attacking Orcs were said to have out numbered them many times even up to ten times. So I'd go with around two thousand Orcs.
