Re: Surprising News

Erm...herm. Ok. I was specifically looking for the passage where Gandalf states that the dwarves were looking for mithril. Thror's ring is an answer, but I was looking for mithril. Sorry Odysseus. <img src=ohwell.gif ALT=":/">

Re: Surprising News

Well of course I used a secondary source. I'm too impatient not to. <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

To continue with the entymologies (sp?):

I'm not sure where this answer lies...(a secondary source mayhaps? <img src=smile.gif ALT=""> ) but what is the name in Black Speech for 'guts?'

Re: Surprising News

From a translation JRRT gave of the curse of the Mordor-orc in 'The Uruk-Hai': bubhósh means pig-guts, hósh is guts.

Re: Surprising News

Absolutely correct...I had to use another of my amazing secondary sources to get that one. It said that the meaning was in LotR...but anyway.

Ask away! <img src=biggrin.gif ALT="">

How many of the Ents who had walked the earth before the darkness are still there when Merry and Pippin enter Fangorn forest, and what are their names?

Re: ENT-ymology

Was looking for the month and day, I don't really no if 2510 is correct though, it may be 2509 not sure. Continue, I don't feel like looking up to see if you are irght <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

Anyway the day if i remember correctly is the 6th of Sulimė.

He was not at ease wearing it (only his father and grandfather were), and he prefered to meet the enemy with his face open, rather then cause fear by the horrible mask of the helm.
