Good Question.

Assuming Tuor, Beren or Earendil's mariners don't count, I would have to say

Melkor & Ulmo

- Cirdan / Maglor68

P.S. - Perhaps Mandos also spoke with Beren?

Ah - I should have remembered to exclude those rare Men who had been to Valinor themselves.

Cirdan is right - Melkor spoke with Hurin (and probably others) and Ulmo spoke with Tuor.

Which two Valar have the most Maiar identified with them, and what are their names? (Hint - they had three 'known' Maia apiece)

For example, Nienna had one identified Maiar - Olorin.

Okay - Which of the Valar is never given any action, and indeed is the only one not mentioned again after the Valaquenta?

Nope - Nessa "danced upon the grass" after her wedding to Tulkas.

Any other takers?

Just read that, I think! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] The "Gates of Summer" festival. Featuring live music (of the ainur) and 10 cent miruvar, presumably.

"Gates of Summer" was actually a name the Gondolindrim used of the feast before the start of summer. Yet your answer was right - the Valar were having a same kind of festival, a celebration of the arrival of the summer.

Go on, Turambar. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Olrin was associated with Manw but he learned an important trait from another of the Valar - which one and what trait?
