Silmaril Who or what am I talking about (I don't even know myself half the time) 2

Restarted, as the old thread was quite long.

A quick summary of the rules:
  • The poser gives a (fairly) simple clue as to the identity of their subject.
    We are allowed to ask questions requiring a yes or no answer.
    Further clues may be given if necessary.

The game so far:
I am an elf who became a king. I became king because of the death of another. I am not Gil-galad, Finrod, Feanor, Turgon, Fingon, Fingolfin or Finarfin.

An extra clue: I was killed in battle.
(By process of elimination there are only a few choices left)

I would say it is Dior, the heir of Thingol, but Thingol was slain by Dwarves who were after the Nauglamir...maybe you could call it a battle of sorts. Of course, Dior was only half-elven, his father being Beren and mother Luthien, so I could be wrong again! But he did take over for a time as the King of Doriath.

Cheers,
Lyta

By process of elimination, you are either an elf or some kind of monster.

Therefore...are you an elf?

Evisse, you have said that you are not human. Are you including Hobbits in the definition of "human"?

If not, are you a Hobbit?

Hmm, you must be someone ... or something ... bad. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Unless ... well, let's eliminate him anyway if not ... are you Tom Bombadil?

Oops! I'm really sorry - I am not in the Silmarillion, it was my ancestor. (blushes and smiles sheepishly) I was, however, in Lord of the Rings, and also in the Hobbit (though my name was never given in the Hobbit).

Yes, I am mortal.

Sorry again about the confusion!

In its original conception, this game was too similar to Who am I?, and so it became a kind of 20 questions. In a way, therefore, it has now been superseded by Telchar's new 20 Questions on ME thread. Although that game can have anything ME-related as the answer, while the questions on this one generally only concern characters, they are nevertheless somewhat duplicative. And, although this was the earlier thread, my instinct is to close this one in favour of the new game.

Plus I'm starting to get irritated by the title to this topic. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

So, this game is closed for now. If anyone has strong feelings about it, and can provide a good reason why it should stay open, PM me and I'll reconsider.
