Ah, very well. Now a question on objects in M-e:

1. Mouth of Sauron mocked the Elessar.
2. Sam saw himself running up a winding stair in Galadriel's Mirror.
3. The Sceptre of Annuminas was made of mithril.

#3 is false. It was made of silver.

2 is false, I believe that Adelard, the eternal borrower of umbrellas, was given an umbrella of his OWN.

Ok, then a new one:

1. Imloth Melui was known for its lillies.
2. White-socks was a pony.
3. 6 Astron was a holiday in the Shire in the Fourth Age.

Btw, I tried to find hard ones here.

Here comes some Entish stuff...

1. Rohirrim had heard of the Ents.
2. Entmoot was held once in a century.
3. Birds were cruel to Bregalad's trees.

Exactly, that's it. Take the thread, please. (And my apologies for taking time. I wasn't around because I had an... attention-demanding guest for a week, so to speak. )

Ah, Sackville-Bagginses came to visit, eh?

Anyways, let me see, a marshy question:

1. The Hobbits of the Marish were predominantly of Stoor descent.
2. The Riders of Rohan could not enter the Fenmarch.
3. Rushock Bog was located along the Water.

1. According to LotR, Prologue:
Quote:
The habit of building farmhouses and barns was said to have begun among the inhabitants of the Marish down by the Brandywine. The Hobbits of that quarter, the Eastfarthing, were rather large and heavy-legged, and they wore dwarf-boots in muddy weather. But they were well known to be Stoors in a large part of their blood [...]
2. LotR V,3, The Muster of Rohan:
Quote:
east and onward rode the Eorlingas
through Folde and Fenmarch and the Firienwood
and:
Quote:
And then on again through the Folde; and through the Fenmarch[...]
3. According to the Shire map, Rushock Bog was located along the Water (where it divides into two arms, north-west of Hobbiton).

So 2 is obviously untrue!

Well, I'll try my very best...

Casualties

1. Faramir was slain in battle with the Wainriders.
2. Théodred was slain in the second battle of the Fords of Isen.
3. Grimbold was slain in the battle on the Pelennor Fields.

No, sorry, Eonwe, 1. is not a lie. That one was a red herring.

It sure was, since there were two Faramirs. The first one, meant here, was indeed mortally wounded by Wainriders.
And Grimbold did indeed die at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
However, Theodred died at the First, not the Second Battle. So that's the lie.

Might, I knew you would! Correct, of course. Go ahead!
And Eonwe, the other Faramir was the younger son of King Ondoher of Gondor, about a millennium or so before Boromir's little brother (but a little brother as well). Sorry for being mean.

Ok, here comes a new one:

Rog was considered strongest of the Noldor.
The term for a wose in Rohan was róg.
Rodyn is the only Sindarin name for the last day of the week.


Btw, tried to make it hard and with a bit of an alliteration.

OK, if nobody else is interested...

Rog was the strongest of the Noldor in the BoLT Fall of Gondolin - true.
róg = wose in the true language of Rohan, according to UT, The Drúedain - true.
However, Rodyn (the weekday dedicated to the Valar) was also called Orbelain in Sindarin. This one's a lie.

(Alliteration appreciated!)

Sorry to keep you waiting, but I've been busy moving and had no internet access for the last week or so. Have a little patience, it's cooking and will soon be served.

OK, here it comes (theme inspired by current RL events):

1. The eastern tip of the island on which the Eldar were ferried from Middle-Earth to Valinor broke off and became the Isle of Balar.
2. The Edain moved to Númenor on Elvish ships steered by sailors from Cirdan's people.
3. Before the Éothéod moved to Calenardhon, their capital was at the confluence of the two tributary streams of the river Greylin.

1 is definitely true. It used to be Tol Eressea

2 is true (Unfinished Tales?)

3 is false. The Éothéod's original capital (later called Framsburg) was in between the Greylin and the Langwell, which were both part of Anduin.

Okay, let's see...

1) Bifur's kinsman wore a cloak of celadon when he met Bilbo.

2) Groin's son accompanied Thorin to meet Beorn.

3) Fundin's son was the first to have his cell unlocked in Mirkwood.

Actually, you are right, although the reason is wrong, I think. Eorl the Young (My namesake) is called young, not because he died young, but because he kept his youthful vitality and bright-golden hair (instead of turning white) to the very end of his days.

I hope I'm not performing thread necromancy here...

So, on other forums I've been in, posting on threads that have been dead for extended periods is somewhat frowned upon, but I've seen no predilection against it here... so I'm going to go ahead. Please let me know I should avoid this in the future.

1) Tarannon Falastur was the first king of Gondor to die without children.

2) The Steward Boromir had the longest rule of the Ruling Stewards.

3) Arvedui was not yet king of Arthedain when he petitioned to the Council of Gondor for the crown.

I'm way too rusty, and I never knew these geneology detailes that well in the first place. I will take a blind stab at #2, but without researching the facts I can't actually give a proper answer.

Huzzah! You're right! The Steward Boromir actually ruled for only 12 years, the shortest rule of any of the Stewards, and died especially young due to complications from a Morgul-wound.

Oh wow, lucky guess! Well, here's a fairly easy one:

1) When looking in the mirror of Galadriel, Frodo saw only one sunset.
2) Pippin saw only one scene in the Palantir before Sauron's "voice" came.
3) Four Rangers of Ithilien came simultaneously to Frodo and Sam when they were found by the smoke of their fire and taken to stay with Faramir.

EDIT: PS: Caruso, are you familiar with The Silmarillion and Children of Hurin? I was gonna post a question about the First Age, but I realized that not everybody has read these books, and I wanted it to be fair.
