I've got the first, but I'm still having trouble with the second. Even the slightest hint would be appreciated...

OK then....I didn't think they were too difficult (but then, I knew the answers [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]) The first one is:

NIRNAETH ARNOEDIAD or Tears Unnumbered

The second one is:

YEAR OF LAMENTATION

I guess the floor is open [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I'm so sorry Nuranar, I didn't notice your post before I posted the answers [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

(Now that I've looked at the times on our posts, I think we were posting at the same time!)

Why don't you have a turn now? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I think the first one is

ERYN LAS GALEN which was the name given to Mirkwood after it was cleansed of evil. I'm working on the second......a hint would be nice [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

"A-ha! *snaffle-snaffle*" cried Doug, "But where's your next anagram?"

I was a little disappointed when I saw there were no unsolved ones, so I thought that I'd continue. Feel free to butt back in with your own, O Saucepan.

U LIVE IN THE UNLIT

MINE BEER ON ARCH

The first one is kind of relevant to the person or place, but I don't think that the second person or place ever actually put their beer on an arch.

Lol... poor Saucepan... you anagram people, go play on Tolkien's letters. It's great fun, and I can't spell [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]. Definately a challenge (doug*platypus' would have been great) because your words actually have to make a phrase.

O! A MARVAL = Valaroma, the horn of Orome

FLOOD FORTRESS = Lord of Forests, the translation of Tauron, one of Orome's names.

"Third woe" is not correct. The periods are not part of the answer.
