All of them have rings, or in Gollum's case, carried one, for a loooong time.

Elrond-Vilya
Galadriel-Nelya or Nenya (I already forget!)
Gollum-the One ring (that is, did have the one ring)

And Shagrat is left out

I say the last one is Galadriel. She is the only one that was not Half-Elven. Also, she was the only Calquendi, those that had seen the Light of the Two Trees.

Lothiriel Silmarian, you are very impatiant, but also correct.

Cimmerian

Boromir because he is the only one who was never a stward or king.
Eomer was the only one with blond hair? (in book)
Aragorn the only one without blond hair (in movie)
Eomer the only one not from Gondor
Eomer the only one with a sister.

Well, nubile means 'of a marriagable condition", (thank you Webster's), so I'm gonna say that it's Boromir, 'cause he was the only one who didn't get married, poor guy. Aragorn=Arwen Faramir=Eowyn Eomer=Lothiriel Boromir=no one [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

But Bilbo and Saradoc weren't part of the fellowship.

Perhaps Belladonna was the only one to have come from a rich and famous family of Hobbits? I can't remember any other references to the Goolds, Goodchilds, or Browns.

Better idea: Bungo was the only one of their Husbands not to appear in LR. This still points to the former miss Took, but gives a more positive connexion between the others.

I don't quite see how that makes her the odd one out. Couldn't you equally well claim that it was Menegilda, because she was the one with the maiden name 'Goold'? (Or in the same way, either of the others?)

That is the case with all odd-man-out threads. There are usually a number of possibilities...you have to come up with the one that the person was thinking of. It just adds to the challenge.

Lindir was the only one who never set foot in to the Barrow-Downs? Or are you looking for something more complex than that?

Gee, I hadn't thought of that, but no.
You could add Glorfindel to the list if that might make it easier.

Question

Lindir/Glorfindel is the only one who lives in Rivendell? While the rest live...uh...outside of Rivendell? But wait, that wouldn't fit into the rules of the game, now would it? So it's obviously something else...Drat.
By adding Glofindel to the list, do you mean adding him to replace Lindir, or adding him in general to the rest of the names?

He was added to the list. Lindir is still on it. It doesn't have much to do with the books. Think outside of the book. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Ooh, you're absolutely right, but it wasn't what I was thinking of. Think of actions preformed.

Eowyn has never been into an Enemy kingdom. Beren was in Angband and Frodo and Elrond were in Mordor.

You know, you're sort of on the right track, but it's a little less complex than that. The thing I'm looking for relates directly to plot, and is an action that was preformed by three of the four names. It's actually really easy once you think of all the smart things each character has done. You could call this thing a tactic.
