Sting Numbers......

This game has do do with the "numbers" of LOTR...
The first person will post a number, and the answer will have to be (correctly) what that number has to do with LOTR.

For example, if I put up the number "9", the answer would be: "The number of Walkers" or "The number of the Ringrwraiths".(some might have more than one answer. It's up to the poster how many of the possible answers they want)

Anyway, if you'd like to try it, here's the first number:
99
What's the significance of this number in LOTR? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Quote:
"I don't know about that," said Sam. "But how would this suit? It ain't what I call proper poetry, if you understand me: just a bit of nonsense. But these old images here brought it to my mind."
Standing up, with his hands behind his back, as if he was at school, he began to sing to an old tune.

This is a really great idea Samwise!!! I don't recall any significant thing that has to do with 99. I'll have to go look or something! I'll be back! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

TY, Lothriel! 99 does have to do with something! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Quote:
Troll sat alone on his seat of stone,
And munched and mumbled a bare old bone;
For many a year he had gnawed it near,
For meat was hard to come by.
Done by! Gum by!
In a cave in the hills he dwelt alone,
And meat was hard to come by.

which is probably what you are after... you could also claim that 99 was the age at which Bilbo began to be called 'Well preserved' or maybe you are thinking about the age of Dora Baggins ? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Goodness....actually, though, no. None of those were the answer I was going for in this case.
Quote:
Said Tom: 'I don't see why the likes o' thee
without axin' leave should go makin' free
With the shank or the shin o' my father's kin;
So hand the old bone over!
Rover! Trover!
Though dead he be, it belongs to he;
So hand the old bone over!'

The only thing I can remember currently is 99 bottles of beer on the wall. But I know that isn't it. Could 99 be how many years for something. Like, in the First Age, it was one year before the foundation of Nargothrond. Or how about (First Age still) it was 1 year after the Return of the Noldor. Eh, probably not. Can you spare us a hint??

It's not as complicated as you're making it. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Hint: the answer is in the very beginning of the story (well, down a paragraph or two....)
Quote:
'For a couple o' pins,' says Troll, and grins,
'I'll eat thee, too, and gnaw thy shins.
A bit o' flesh meat will go down sweet!
I'll try my teeth on thee now.
Hee now! See now!
I'm tired o' gnawing old bones and skins;
I've a mind to dine on thee, now.'

But harder than stone is the flesh and bone
Of a troll that sints in the hills alone.
As well set your boot to the mountain's root,
For the seat of a troll don't feel it.
Peel it! Heal it!
Old Troll laughed, when he heard Tom groan,
And he knew his toes could feel it.

Oh. My. Um, lets see... This MIGHT be a bt hard, it might not... Dunno. I'm not too terribly good at riddles, making them up at least.

What does the number "20" have to do with the books?

Hm. Telchar, I think the next time I see you in a game, I'll just split 'cause you're too smart! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] That's probably it!

Quote:
"If you don't come back, sir, then I shan't, that's certain." said Sam. "'Don't you leave him!' they said to me. 'Leave him!' I said. 'I never mean to. I am going with him, if he climbs to the moon, and if any of those Black Riders try to stop him, they'll have Sam Gamgee to reckon with.' I said. "

Sam looked from bank to bank uneasily. The trees had seemed hostile before, as if they harboured secret eyes and lurking dangers; now he wished that the trees were still there. He felt that the company was on a river that was the frontier of war.

Gollum claimed only to have 6 teeth, however Butterbur made a strong point that he didnt have six legs and six eyes - and Merry of course had six ponies in the stables in Buckland - Gloin told Frodo that it took six young Dwarfs to lift fat old Bombur and Bergil brought Aragorn six leaves of Kingsfoil.... just to mention a few.

There were 6 members of the Fellowship at one time, after Frodo and Gandalf went into the West-Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Sam, Merry, and last but definetly not least, Pippin.

The number...
  • 15

Any idea what this pertains to? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
