I spy

I spy with Sauron's eye... or maybe a palantir...

OK, so this is a game of ME "I spy". For those who do not know how to play, it's fairly easy. I say "I spy with Sauron's eye something that is [ insert colour (s) ]", and you have to guess what it is. You have to continue guessing until you name the thing that I had in mind. The person to get it right says the next colour. If no one can guess, the person asking can give clues.

Example: I spy with Sauron's eye something that is gold.

- Is it Laurelin? No.

-Is it Finrod's hair? No.

-Is it Lothlorien? Yes.


Let's start with something easy. I spy with Sauron's eye something that is black.


PS: Please don't choose things like "grass" or "sky". Do something interesting ME-related. However, you can do places/things/etc that involve something like that. (eg I can say that Calenardhon is green, because it's grassy, but my object is Calenardhon, not grass.)

Do you mean Gurthang? Mormegil was Turin's nickname.

Gurthang - no.
Mormegil - no.

Gurthang - no.
Mormegil - no.
Grond - no
Melkor's cloak - no
Valaraukar (Balrog) - sorry to disappoint you, but no. (I think it's more black+fiery... )

Don't think of people. And think BIG.

You got it! It's Barad-dur!

Your turn!

PS: I means that the Balrog would be fiery and black, not the thing I had in mind. Sorry for the misunderstanding. But you got it anyways!

Hurray for my side! **pats self on the back** I had hoped that string or nothing was the answer but Barad-dur will suffice! Ok, not people, but things...

So, ok, here goes...

I spy with Sauron's eye... or maybe a palantir...

Something that is grey

The rocks and stones
Are hard as bones
All bare of meat
And now we wish - we had an answer.

Nah, that's too general... my guess is... um... um... Mitheithel (Grey Springs, grey, right? )

Owee!

Getting warmer. Fantastic guess, but no. Not Mitheithel. You are on the right track with stones. But it is specific thing of stone, and not a Palantir. As you said before think big!

No Hatin'

Perhaps if I bent the rules and gave a small clue? Don't Censure me if I take too much liberty, just boo me down...

I spy with Saurons Eye
An object grey and cold-
Not caverns deep,
nor vaulted Keep,
still, something new
yet old.

In the running...

I spy with Saurons Eye
An object grey and cold-
Not caverns deep,
nor vaulted Keep,
still, something new
yet old.


Misty Mountains: No, and Too generic

"still, something new
yet old."

Old would cover the Misty Mountain Range but something new? Think of a thing newer than it's host object of origin. Here is another clue...

Beyond the tall
and frothy falls,
The Faithful's
northern lands-
not marked by gates
or fortress walls,
but stern majestic hands.

Even the least inquisitive of Hobbits could guess this one, now.

I'd say the argonath, but they are near Gondor, not Arnor.

Unless the clue means to the north of the land, and then it makes more sense.

String... or nothing!

A Dwarven Perspective~

Not pallored moon
nor star so fair
nor Anduins'
ribboned trail

not Celebrimbor's
silvery hair
compares
to Mithril Mail.

If your guess is Frodo's mithril coat, then I have to say no.
