Who played Earendil? Because I played Elwing! It was a funny coincidence.

Kath has the victory with Arkenstone.

Wilwa has also messaged me with the winner of "Dangerous" and has chosen...

++Minas Morgul.

Citing she did not believe Sauron beats his places outright. Minas Morgul as the home of the Ringwraiths and drawing Frodo to its call fulfills dangerous. The name itself also sounding threatening translating to "Tower of Black Sorcery."

So, sally wins for dangerous.

Bah, Minas Morgul is nothing without Sauron.

Who played Sauron? I would've picked it. (The only other possibility for me would've been Silmarils I think.)

One of them just struck a note...but I want to hear peoples' opinions, and maybe you'll be able to convince me to pick a different one. And no, I'm not telling which one resonated with me, it's more interesting this way.

Great minds think alike... or are dealt similar enough cards to choose from. But yes, I did play Eärendil. It was a nice coincidence! And that was the reason I asked Boro if he'd allow a double-victory on that remarkable coincidence.... but that was not to come, I see.



Of those in play this round I'd say quite many would fit the term "sensitive" (susceptible, sympathetic, tender).


On the top of my hat I'd think the following at least merit consideration (in the order they appear on the list)...


Barliman Butterbur - Haha, always willing to know how people like him, ready to please everyone, feeling strongly about his guests and his own honour ("What would others think if they knew something happened in the Prancing Pony"), sympathtic to the bone, susceptible, especially to flattery, and a bar-tender.

Nienna - Now if there ever was a trump-card to "sensitive" you should consider Nienna. If you are the "ladý of pity and mourning" you need to be sensitive and have loads of sympathy. And being susceptible goes more or less as a job descritpion for Nienna. Maybe not as funny a choice as Butterbur, but to the point on a level of her own.

Beleg - So sensitive and tender-hearted towards Túrin it proved his own downfall. Sympathetic to the edge of that being tragic.

Gwaihir - Always so sensitive and susceptible about who can ride him and how much and what for...

Huorns - Very sensitive to the opinions and actions of others towards forests. Their tenderness and sympathy is pretty limited though and towards any "out-group" they seem to be everything but that. But a nice choice still as I tihnk it is their susceptibility and sensibility that made them join the cause when Gandalf did his "Saruman-tricks".


Others I don't think fit so well, but maybe after some thought I can come up with words on their behalf as well. But at least now I'd say the five aforementioned are the contenders.

Nienna and Miriel are probably best for "sensitive" in the typical sense, though Bert would probably count toward the "takes everything personally and complains about it" type of sensitive.

For this round, I go with Nienna. Hands down.

That basically summs it up. Both funny and serious. And, what can I say? Nienna just looked at me.

I mean it certainly produces some of the most hilarious combinations when you only have two or three cards in your hand and need to pick one for a given green tater... not to talk of the last round.

Arien
Two Trees of Valinor
Phial of Galadriel

All four are good. They are the ones I would consider too.


I suppose I like Phial best, because it's an object and I tend to like objects. Then the 2 Trees. And then Arien, since it's just too true. And fourth comes Varda.

However, Trees beat Phial in epicness.

As you wish.

We may not be able to go to the very very end, since with judges not everyone will run out at the same time. But we will go as far as possible.

Varda- Made the stars. Angelic aura.
Arien- Sun. Angelic. Hot.
Two Trees of Valinor- Both sun and moon.
Phial of Galadriel- Starlight. Spelled with "ph".

Okay, let's toss out Varda.

Two Trees- Perhaps the "right" answer.
Phial- It would be super if Galadriel was the one that played it (along with the "ph").
Arien- Gotta love the sun-lady (especially after Real Valinor's run).

For "Radiant" (shining, glowing, sparkling)

The "obvious" choices:

Two Trees of Valinor - The most obvious of the obvious choices. 'nuff said.
Arien - an excellent choice, if there weren't Telperion and Laurelin played as well, for neither Arien or Tilion carry with them the original light but a faded version of it.
Phial of Galadriel - an excellent choice (well, not perhaps so sparkling but...), if there weren't Telperion and Laurelin - and Arien - played as well, for the phial is just a reflection of a reflection of the light of the Trees - so like two times removed from the original.
Varda - The only possible competition to the Trees if you think of her as the creator of the stars themselves - but she is not the stars as she is their creator: so unlike the three others she doesnt radiate but creates things that radiate (wasn't she initially the dew-collector for the trees?). Is that better or worse than radiating yourself - that's up to you tp.


Good or decent choices but not like the first attribute I'd give them (if you want to think outside the box, then you might find a good candidate from here):

Romenna - Must be one of the most radiant cities ever built, and especially because it became the safe-haven () of the faithful later on...
Tuor - if he manages to be picked by Ulmo, to become the leader of the "House of the Swan Wing" and to be the only human counted as an elven kindred, then he has to be quite radiant.
Nessa - dashing speed and great dancer, not that far-fetched for radiant.
Ulmo - I think all of the Valar must be radiant in some way but I wouldn't think I would go using that term on Ulmo in the top-fifty choices for descriptions on him.
Ithilien - Yeah, you could say that, maybe, possibly, on some fine times. But it is in the end a forest.

Hmm...

Golfimbul - Well, if you think losing your head into a rabbit-hole is radiant, then why not...

Yes, I suppose it would be tough for me to justify one of the others if it's on the same grounds... Ah well...

Silmaril

Maeglin, Gondor, and Curufin seem the best choices to me. I would personally go with Curufin.

Ditto.


And - woohoo! I won a round! Though I wouldn't have minded giving the victory to the Phial of Galadriel. That was one very nice choice indeed.

Of these, Maeglin strikes me as more wicked than conceited, Gondor strikes me as more underestimating Mordor than conceited, Elrond strikes me as a funny choice but not really conceited, and the rest bore me - well, excpet for one...

Ouch Lottie, why so fast?

I was hoping to persuade you to pick Gondor - for it sure wasn't "underestimating" Mordor, well, at least by the times of Denethor - but they, if some, were during centuries the self-centered ones who thought they were the only lineage worthy of the great Men of old scorning their northern brothers and thinking they only could stand against the foul forces of the East etc. They were the "shield of the West" and none else could do anything but them...

But it seems I'm late now...

Well, next time then.

The Running River was quite clever, but the main ones that really fit the theme are the four phantom mentioned. And out of those I would pick

++Imrahil
