William the Troll-Gandalf-Durin's Bane-Gothmog-Echthelion

That perhaps works, as Durin's Bane would have had to have 'met' Gothmog, Lord of the Balrogs.

Ah, I'm going to have to work harder at this. The second one was what I had in mind.

Hint: akhtene wouldn't know because she doesn't have the book.

unless by some odd chance she does know and in that case, she'd better go ahead and post! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Mm ->Hrin ->Elw ->Galadriel ->Gandalf ->Treebeard

I don't think Galadriel met Treebeard or if Hrin met Galadriel, but if either one of those metting occured, you can deduct the chain for me.

Did Manw meet Gandalf? Lrien or Nienna would have been more plausable, but i'll still give it to you, since you were on the right track.

Well, Gandalf was a Maia of Manw and Varda, though also Niennas greatest pupil. SO Manw works.

Elros->Orodreth

Did you mean Ulmo. Only because I've never read about an Elmo.

If you did...

Ar-Zimraphel ->Ar- Pharazn -> Sauron ->Melkor ->Ulmo


Note: I haven't read Akallabth for a long time and I'm not sure if Mriel met Sauron. If so.

Ar-Zimraphel ->Sauron ->Melkor ->Ulmo

Nope I didnt, but a good connection. Elmo is Elwe and Olwe's younger brother (according to UT) and it seems to be held as fact though i am not sure about that. My previous question still stands.

I didn't think so:

In that case:

Great, mine went like thus:

Ar-Zimraphel - Elendil - Elrond - Celeborn - Elmo

or was it

Ar-Zimraphel - Elendil - Gil-Galad - Fingon - Celeborn - Elmo

but perhaps that one doesn't work. The first one definately does because I am assuming Celeborn did know his grandfather.

Your turn!

Adrahil-Imrahil-Gandalf-Thorin II-Frerin

Adrahil was either the father or grandfather of Imrahil, either way they would have met.

And btw, WHERE on earth do you pull these characters. I didn't even know who Adrahil was!

Very nice Beren - your turn.

Adrahil was also Denethor's father-in-law, so the connection could have been made that way.
