Fingolfin and Finwe are both correct. Lothiriel is the maiden of the vegetable garlands, and her son Elfwine is the old intoxicant. (elf=Eldar=elder, wine=intoxicant that is also old.)
Fingolfin's turn.

I'm really bad at this sort of stuff, so Finwe can go.

I fought bravely and fell by an invincible hand. I lost my family, and died in a mirror that would reflect what happened to me 260 years later.

None of the Aragorns, and none of the Durins. When I say 'invincible', I really mean invincible, but it's not old age.

Fingolfin? since he died by Melkor a Valar, which was considered a God, and Gods were considered immortals

Nope. It's a man. And the invincible thing is really invincible; it's not a sentient being.

Since we're over the 10 page limit, I'm closing this thread. Symestreem, could you start a new one please and include in your first post the rules for the game and a summary of where we are with your question.

Thanks.

Who Am I II?

The point of this game is to guess the person from the information given. The information will vary, but it's rarely straightforward. Sometimes it's cryptic. (If anyone can give a better summary I'd appreciate it... I can't find the original 'Who Am I?').

Righty-ho then, the riddle on the table is

I fought bravely and fell by an invincible hand. I lost my family, and died in a mirror that would reflect what happened to me 260 years later.

We have established that
-It is not any of the Boromirs
-It is not any of the Aragorns
-It is not any of the Durins
-It is not Elendil
-It is not Fingolfin
-It is not Ar-Pharazon
-It is not Isildur
-It is not Denethor or the last king of Gondor
-It is a man
-The 'invincible hand' is really invincible- it cannot be defeated, although it does not always win. It is not sentient or sapient.

I knew someone would say that

No. Think of the "mirror" part.
Hint: The 'invincible hand' also threatened the Fellowship of the Ring.

Could it be Helm? He died 260 years before Frodo and Sam looked in the Mirror of Galadriel, he lost his family, he froze to death, and cold is quite invincible.

You're so close! Really! But the "Mirror" but is not literal. Rather, it shows a duplicate of what happened. If that helps any.
