10. Grimbeorn the Old

12. Malbeth the Seer

Seer is a noun, not an adjective. (Just to be pedantic).

There's Boromir the Bold ...

And

13. Eorl the Young

(And Samwise the Stout-Hearted, if we quibble that Sauron and Gorthaur are the same character).

Now let's have ... cooks/bakers/food or drink makers (can be just one meal/ a one-off item if we run out).

1. Old Stone Troll/Perry-the-Winkle: Cramsome bread.

It doesn't have to be Middle-earth, right?

1. Old Stone Troll/Perry-the-Winkle: Cramsome bread.
2. Alf of Wootton Major: baker, notably of two Great Cakes.

To honour a favourite chapter:

1. Old Stone Troll/Perry-the-Winkle: Cramsome bread.
2. Alf of Wootton Major: baker, notably of two Great Cakes.
3. Samwise Gamgee: stewed rabbit, though I trust he makes great fish and chips too.

(nice topic!)

Trying not to eat sweet things, so bathing in them and making puzzles about them instead.

Indeed, anything Tolkien is fine, Hs. I wonder if we can find 13?

5. Mim the Petty-dwarf: Earth-bread (aka Mim's taters. )

I bet we can hit 13 easily. Do they all have to have personal names, or does a job description suffice?

Job description fine.

Do all answers have to be sensible?

Next up, how about Confirmed Ringbearers, broadly defined.

1. Durin III (Dwarven ring)

(I really wanted to do 'people who have touched the One Ring', but I could only think of ten of them. Ah, well.)

Hui, who are your 10 One Ring Ringbearers? I got Sauron, Isildur, Deagol, Gollum, Bilbo, Frodo, Bombadil, and Sam in chronological order. Gandalf never actually touches the Ring I believe, though he does hold it with the fire tongs. But that's still 9. It's bothering me not knowing who is your 10th.

[Edit: I suppose you can count Gollum and Smeagol as separate people, and I believe in the movies Boromir holds it for a bit on Caradhras. So maybe you can stretch it to 11?]



Next topic: Transportation, broadly defined.

1. Fell Beast

Gandalf does touch the One. He looks at it, then throws it manually into Frodo's fireplace.

There is whoever takes the Ring from Frodo's pocket, takes it off its old chain and puts it on a new one and around Frodo's neck in Rivendell. They could have hooked it with a stick, I suppose, but ....

My money would be on Elrond.

Reminds me of early themed passwords and spelling Khamul backwards, or something. But the last Oxonmoot Quiz had a questiom like this too, IIRC.
