How many times did Fingolfin swipe Morgoth with his blade before being smote to the ground by Grond? <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

Re: Ask

I know of a small nameless elven port at the Belfalas from which Amroth and Finduilas wanted to sail west.

Tooks

Congrats on 600 posts, Sharku! Milestone after milestone <img src=wink.gif ALT=""> Argh! I had a really good question that I thought of during a boring class but have now forgotten. So while I'm trying to conjure up that question again: Name the Took who was responsible for building the Great Smials.

No I think Galdalf was invited (the previous day, when Bilbo was flustered), so I'll say &quot;1&quot;.

Yes, one is correct, for Gandalf was indeed invited, as opposed to dwarves who came uninvited

It's in a song, and, I have shamefully forgot to add, from HoME.

Further hint: the town is Kortirion...

Re: Go!

<blockquote>Quote:<hr> &quot;Thou art the inmost province of the fading isle
Where linger yet the Lonely Companies.
Still, undespairing, do they sometimes slowly file
Along thy paths with plaintive harmonies:
The holy fairies and immortal elves
That dance amoung the trees and sing themselves
A wistful song of things that were, and could be yet.
They pass and vanish in a sudden breeze,
A wave o bowing grass--and we forget
Their tender voices like wind-shaken bells
Of flowers, their gleaming hair like golden asphodels.<hr></blockquote>

The answer, then, would be 'the Lonely Companies,' holy faeries and immortal elves. Thankyou for introducing to me that poem Sharku (The alt codes are stuffing up, Opera 5 doesn't have an 'insert symbol' option and IE always crashes. ACK! <img src=smile.gif ALT=""> ) it truly is one of Tolkien's more beautiful and melodic writings.

Not to say it's the only one <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

It took me a while to find that song. <img src=smile.gif ALT=""> Ok, to continue with an easier trivia question:

According to Gandalf, what was the thing that [Balin] and the dwarves came back to Moria for?

Re: Go!

I think Odysseus is correct <img src=frown.gif ALT=""> , but I can't help answering that they were looking for mithril. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Re: Go!

Yeah I think you're giving me that one -- Gandalf says right in &quot;Journey in the Dark&quot; that they came back for mithril. I was remembering the part in &quot;Council of Elrond&quot; where G. says that Balin went away partly in search of Thror's ring. But I'll take your reply as meaning &quot;close enough&quot;.

Re: Surprising News

So here's my Q -- everyone probably remembers the scene in Bilbo's room after the Council of Elrond, when Bilbo jokes with Gandalf that he (G.) had been surprised at the news that Gollum had escaped, and G. says with typical arrogance that he knew all about it, was the only one at the Council who was not surprised by anything, etc. etc. But what was reported to Gandalf at the Council that DID surprise him?
