Two truths and a lie...

I would guess that most of us have played this game, but I've never tried it online, so I think it would be fun. Just remember that it has to be LotR.

For those who don't know how to play: here are some simple rules.

You post two true statements and a fals statement. Such as:

1. Frodo was a hobbit.
2. Gandalf was a hobbit.
3. Sam was a hobbit.

Then someone guesses which is the lie. It is then their turn. (You might specify book or movie, too.)

So:

According to the movies.
1. Pippin ate four pieces of Lembas.
2. Denethor gets his butt kicked by Gandalf for being a crazy, despairing leader.
3. Merry and Pippin found two barrels of Old Toby at Isengard.

I'm not very strong on the movies, I'm afraid, and I am not sure whether to take the No 2. literally. I think I'll choose 3, as I don't remember the phrase 'Old Toby' in the movie anywhere.

I will guess at 1. Was it not Gimli who ate four pices of Lembas?

I guess number two. Gandalf hits his head with a stuff, not kicks his butt. (But if it isn't literal, then I'm wrong.)

Sorry, Thinlómien, it isn't literal. The correct response is number 3.

It is a lie because Merry and Pippin find two barrels of Longbottom Leaf, not Old Toby, which is what Gandalf and Bilbo are smoking in FotR.

So it's your turn, Eorl of Rohan.

Okay, here it goes!

1. Feanor is the most powerful and intelligent elf ever.
2. Morgoth kills Felagund.
3. Eorl was called young because he died young.

Actually, you are right, although the reason is wrong, I think. Eorl the Young (My namesake) is called young, not because he died young, but because he kept his youthful vitality and bright-golden hair (instead of turning white) to the very end of his days.

I hope I'm not performing thread necromancy here...

So, on other forums I've been in, posting on threads that have been dead for extended periods is somewhat frowned upon, but I've seen no predilection against it here... so I'm going to go ahead. Please let me know I should avoid this in the future.

1) Tarannon Falastur was the first king of Gondor to die without children.

2) The Steward Boromir had the longest rule of the Ruling Stewards.

3) Arvedui was not yet king of Arthedain when he petitioned to the Council of Gondor for the crown.

On the whole it is preferred here that you do ressurect old threads rather than restart near idrentical so feel free.

I'm way too rusty, and I never knew these geneology detailes that well in the first place. I will take a blind stab at #2, but without researching the facts I can't actually give a proper answer.
