Thuringwethil–Sauron-Gollum-Bilbo.

Or is that too lazy?

Aiaiai, it's pretty lazy. But I'll accept it, you were smarter than me. I was thinking Thuringwethil -> Lúthien -> Mandos -> Nienna -> Gandalf -> Bilbo.

Please take the thread.

You can also have Thuringwethil– Lúthien– Melian– Galadriel– Anyone in the Fellowship– Bilbo.

So I had that in reserve.

Ah, now that works (obviously), but I forgot to specify that it's five steps maximum. Sorry about that.

Hmmn... I'll give it to you anyway, Andsigil, as your way is quite clever (and completely different from mine). Would you like to have a try at the shorter path, just for the exercise?

I'm beginning to realize that solving these puzzles is easier than making them...

How about: Lossoth Chief > Elphir

Certainly.

Elphir was the twenty-third Prince of Dol Amroth. He was the oldest son of Prince Imrahil.

Yes, it is. Well, if you try to be a tad nasty about it.


Lossoth Chief -> Arvedui -> (Aranarth ->) Elrond -> Aragorn -> Imrahil -> Elphir

(Hm, vzv, Nerwen, using Sauron or Gandalf is illegal in this thread. See first post.)

It's not illegal, Nilp, just not recommended. That's why I asked if my way was too lazy– but Lommy's had Gandalf in it anyway. And you'll see that I had a Plan B that didn't use either of them.

yourself.

I checked before posting this and, while it's not implausible, I couldn't find any evidence that they had actually met. Same with Arvedui and Cirdan.

Still open.

work? Not that I want to take the thread... my brain is a tad cooked when it comes to inspiration, at the moment.

I did put in Aranarth there. *pouts* Or is it too long with him in there?

That's the path I had! Your turn.

Was that one difficult? I had a devil of a time thinking that one up.

Well, as I said, my brain's a tad cooked, so the best I came up with is:

Ulmo -> Sam

Who are rather opposite types, given Sam's fear of water. When I thought of the more convoluted way, I realized there's a very short way as well. Drat.

That's more or less the easy route. Ulmo -> Cirdan -> Sam (since we know that Ulmo spoke directly to Cirdan when he asked him to remain in ME, and Cirdan remained "deep in the counsels" of Ulmo and Osse). My original thought was a bit less direct, though you may certainly take the thread if you like.

Ah. I didn't have the book with me, and I couldn't remember if Ulmo ever spoke to Círdan in person, so I threw in Ossë to be on the safe side.

Out of curiosity, was the other route anything like Ulmo– Tuor– Eärendil– Elrond– Sam?

Anyway, how about

Finduilas of Nargothrond => Finduilas of Dol Amroth?

Yep. There was also a possibility of Ulmo > Tuor > Glorfindel > Sam, but that's supposing Tuor and Glorfindel met, outside of Glorfindel saving Tuor and family when he killed the Balrog. And supposing Tolkien really had made up his mind about the two Glorfindels being the same person.

You could insert Orodreth ahead of Galadriel but Finduilas and Galadriel must have known each other well from Nargothrond.

I'll give it to you, Skip... but see if you can make the path shorter. (Hint: one person can replace Aragorn and Denethor).

Imrahil? He met Galadriel I suppose...

Alright, let's see then Yavanna -> Bert the Troll

(And there's no indication that Gandalf/Olorin ever met Yavanna)

Possibly; I was thinking of someone more pivotal to the story than Imrahil, and who definitely met Galadriel.

Yavanna– Aulë– Saruman– Frodo– Bilbo– Bert?

Faramir, then? But I can't think of an instance when he met Galadriel, apart from at the wedding of Arwen and Aragorn...

Edit: It should be Boromir of course! How did I not think of him!?

I'll allow that, although I'm not too happy with the Aulë-Saruman connection (sure he was originally a Maia of Aulë, but there's no written evidence they met)
