It is simple indeed, and I didn't expect it to be anything too difficult So it was indeed just the fact that they have lived in Dunland for a while. Your turn, Miggy

Not that tricky, but here goes:
What do Húrin and Basso Boffin have in common?

I checked again, and his name is spelled correctly, it is Basso.
Well, you'll have to figure that out.

Well, Basso (as far as I know) traveled to the Sea, and Hurin drowned himself in the Sea...if that's a connection at all.
It's be nice to know if I got the answer right, but it'd would be a miracle if Might still didn't forget the answer!

It's been a long time, but I still recall what I had in mind.
It is indeed the fact that they both reached the sea as the first of their kind.

Right you are! They all have "grey" in their names: Mithrandir, Thingol, Ered Mithrin (or Grey Mountains).

It's been a while since Nerwen should have replied, please let me know if I'm being presumptuous in taking her place

Here's an easy one (I think):

They all went on a 'journey', so to say.

Beren and Luthien to Angband
Frodo to Mordor
I don't really know who Gwindor is
And Maedhros with the Curse


(*looks up Gwindor* Wait he was also captured...so they all were in an evil land. 'Cause he was captured during the Unnumbered Tears)

Good guess, BG, but not what I was thinking of.
I never thought of it that way - all of them being captured. That's a really good guess.

They were all permanetly injured because of the enemy

Maedhoros's hand had to be cut off to escape.
Frodo's finger was bitten off by Gollum
Gwindor was bent and broken following his escape from Morgoth.
Beren's hand was bitten off by Carcharoth.

If I'm right Blind Guardian can have my turn.

You are right, though I was thinking more specifically that Gwindor's hand was cut off when he escaped from Angband, so all of the have maimed hands.

They all have ears, and noses, and a mouth each, and they can all speak, and hear, and they all have names, and they all have a mommy and a daddy...

Seriously now:

Who's Ingwion? The Enc. of Arda and Google both failed to tell me that. Is it the son of Ingwe that Tolkien never wrote about?

If so, they are all the sons of rulers. Ingwe - the Vanyar, Dior - Doriath, and Thranduil - Lasgalen/Mirkwood.

Hey, he was written about...in HOME.

And very close...I was looking for something a bit more specific, they were all the sons of Kings, who never were what?

When I read your post, the first thing that came to mind is "they were all the sons of Kings, who never were ... married!" Aparantly all my common sense went on holiday.

They weren't... ummm.... Wait, are you referring to the Kings or the Sons?

O, because I thought you meant the Kings. They had sons, but never married.

All princes that never became kings?

Huh? Eludred and Elurin's father was married - to Nimloth (and I'm like the only person in the world who remembers that I think...what can I say, I fangirl Celeborn and his relatives. )

That's what I meant - you can't be a father if you're not married, unless... yes, that. My brain went on strike.

(you're not the only person, I remember Celeborn's relatives )

Nimloth
Morwen
Glorfindel
Celeborn


Bad list, but I don't have any good ideas.

Ah - it seems Androg and Mim cursed each other, which means all four had curses laid on them. Is that specific enough? I'm worried by the 'that other characters don't have' part of the thread - there were a lot of curses bouncing around Beleriand.

As for me, I like half of them more than I should like, and I like half of them less than half of what they deserve.

Well, Androg was a murderer and attempted rapist, Mim went around scattering curses wherever he went, Turin brought down Nargothrond, and Maeglin betrayed Gondolin and tried his hand at infanticide. I think all of them fall firmly into the 'if you'd died sooner everyone around you would have been better off' category; whether I like them is beside the point. (For the record, I feel a lot of sympathy for Mim, but yikes was he malicious.)

Yes, it is.

And what's is this? You feel sympathy for an 'evil' character? Well, so do I. What a happy coincidence.

The only three known/named as owners of Sting?

Or the only three actually *referred to* as Ringbearers in reference to the One Ring, since Sauron, Isildur, Sméagol and Deagol were not? Bilbo was ONCE, by Frodo, at the Havens, where he said 'Yes, I am coming. The Ringbearers should go together.'

Correct - though wielders, rather than owners. Bill, Bert, and Tom were collective owners, after all, but it's hard to imagine them wielding it. And presumably some Gondolin elf (maybe even Turgon himself) once owned and used it... but that's not confirmed.

Over to you.
