Thanks! Telchar [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Well, here goes nothing:

I am Child of both darkness and light.
At first I prefered the light in me, but I betrayed it, when I was confronted with darkness itself.

I hope that's not too easy..or too flawed for that matter [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Or is it Gothmog lord of Morgul [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Gothmog Lieutenant of the Balrogs killed at least two kings, Feanor and Turgon and Gothmog lord of Morgul killed none.
Gothmog lieutenant of the balrogs protected Morgoth, Gothmog lord of Morgul protected Sauron who was great but not the Greatest.
The lieutenant of the Balrogs was killed in Gondolin. The lord of Morgul was killed, I think some were at the Battle of the Pelennor fields.

Surely it's Ugluk. He was certainly a strict leader, although there was infighting (camp against camp and big against small) amongst the Orcs he "led". He fears no-one except Saruman, and he stood and fought when the Rohirrim attacked.

It is almost perfect Sauce, except the bad guy and the part about Saruman.

Hint- take "There I stood high" literal

Er-Murazor was the "human" name for the witch-king, before he became a NAzgul

Indeed, Shagrat is the bad guy.

There was a fight (the Shagrat camp fought against the Gorbag camp) because Shagrat forbid the other orcs to search (and steal that mithril coat) Frodo. Big against small is the fight between Shagrat and Snaga. Shagrat was pretty fearless, until he saw Sam with the one ring. He ran away like a frightened schoolgirl

Hmmm.... I thought that "Er-Murazor" was a name that came from a set of commercial LoTR playingcards which has nothing, what so ever, to do with anything JRR Tolkien wrote...

I plead that the quizroom sticks to what is Written in the books unless anything else is asked for...

A point of view - shared by Telchar...

I agree. And I also plead that side discussions be kept to a minimum on the Quiz threads. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

And so to my question:

Which "Bad Guy" was driven mad by internal torment and, in his madness, breached the defences of a well-protected place?
