Shield Nasssty trickssy questions!

Goodness, me. I go away for a couple of days and come back to face all these tricksy questions!

Oh well, I shall do my best ...


Quote:
Is it where they found the survivor?
It's not the Misty Mountains (I'm thinking of Celebrian, but you probably have something different in mind).


Quote:
is it no mine it is a tomb
It's not Moria.


Quote:
Is it one who came back?
Hmm, this one again. Well, this time it's not Melian (who returned to Aman following the death of Thingol).


Quote:
Is it an enemy of the Enemy?
It's not Meriadoc Brandybuck.


Quote:
Is it a town in the Shire?
It's not Michel Delving.


Quote:
Does it have white horses?
Gah! I was hoping not to have to see this question again. It's not Meduseld (white horse banners).


Quote:
is it something that people came to see from afar places, but not a single man has seen it?
It's not the Master-Stone (of the Palantiri).


Quote:
Is it a steward of Gondor?
It's not Mardil Voronwe.


Quote:
is it an elvish realm?
It's not Mithlond.

I have a horrible feeling that I am going to see some of those questions again. I also have a horrible feeling that I am just staving off the inevitable, and that I will be forced to reveal the next 2 or 3 letters very soon ...

Are you implying that Elves aren't glad to see Merry?

Evisse, you're not thinking of Mithrandir, are you? I gave him as the answer to an earlier question.

Assuming that you are not, who could it be? Malach Aradan? He spent a lot of time with Elves.

Well, it's not Malach Aradan.

*LOL* No - far from it. But you have to admit they're not exactly beside themselves with delight when they meet him - or any hobbits, for that matter
But still I haven't found my answer. So:

Is it an enemy of the Enemy whom the Elves are glad to see?

You people and your pesky questions!

It is not Minas Tirith (where Luthien and Huan found Beren).

Nope.


Quote:

It is not the Mindeb.


Quote:

By Jove, I think that I may have got it at last! It is not the Moon.


Quote:

Hopefully this one too. It is not Minastir.


Quote:

It is not a Mallorn Tree.


Quote:

Ulp! I think that I am going to have to call you on this one, paavo. What is your answer?

So we're supposed to wait until paavo answers his question and Saucepan gives the next letter. Afterwards, some of the questions we're asking now, may not even apply.

White-Hand Evisse is right

Once paavo gives his answer, I will give the next letter. You can then decide whether your question still applies or whether you need to ask a different one.

It occurs to me that giving into questions in this way can be a good tactical move, as it may allow me to avoid having to try to answer questions which I know will come up again but for which I have no answer.

You know paavo, this really is a good game.

just my luck...

to tell you the truth saucepan man, you already answered to my question.
the word I was looking for was Mallorn. Not Mallorn generally but the Mallorn Sam got from galadriel and planted in the shire. I suppose no man ever saw since "big folk" were forbidden to enter inside the shire.


thanks. I like this game too, I've been playing it with my family for years (although not ME related).

Darn it! That means I have to answer Perky's question again.

OK, here we go:


Quote:
is it the race doomed to die which according to Elrond is weak?
It is not Men.


Quote:
Is it where they found the survivor?
It is not the Mound of the Elf-Maid (where Nienor was found).


Quote:
Is it a holy mountain that existed in Numenor?
It is not Meneltarma.

Keep 'em coming.

You put a brave stand, Sauce! :)

My answer is Menelvagor - the constellation. It had a special significance to the Elves, who sang when it appeared in the sky - as it reminded them of the final battle. More than that, it's mentioned that he represents Turin, who will fight with Melkor at that final battle, so he's the enemy of the Enemy.

Good one, Evisse.

OK, the next letter is 'A'.

Hopefully, that should make things a lot easier for me as well as you lot.

Double Doh! OK, no books to hand, so I'm gonna say ... it's not the Master of Doom (as Turambar doesn't seem the sort to scare easily ).

Took some effort, though. It's not Mallos.
