The Enemy is Morgoth Bauglir
I don't rightly know this, but I thought: Turin, Eonwe and Fingolfin
Turin delivers the death stroke with his Black Sword, thus revenging his dreadful life.

There were three survivors. Ohtar, his companion, and Estelmo.

From Unfinished Tales:

Quote:
There were eye-witnesses of the event. Ohtar and his companion escaped, bearing with them the shards of Narsil. The tale mentions a young man who survived the slaughter: he was Elendur's esquire, named Estelmo, and was one of the last to fall, but was stunned by a club, and not slain, and was found alive under Elendur's body.

There's a differance in being here and participating here. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] So just follow the rules and everyone can have a good time!

Now, Elfhelm has been gone for more than 10 days, even with my PMs he has not posted here, so it's anyone's turn.

Glad to see your back Beren87. Hope all is okay. Let's try this one:

In what Battle was an elf, who had been enslaved in Angband and escaped, slain?

That would be the Battle of Tumhalad, if I remember correctly. And the elf that was mortally wounded was Gwindor.

Hi, Beren, nice to see you're back! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
But to the answer you gave...you got 2 out of four right.
Battle of the Gladden Fields is usually referred to as Disaster of the G.F.
And the Battle of Hornburg...well: Saruman's forces vs. Rohirrim+Aragorn, Gimli& Legolas
Yes, I'm picky! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

OK, how about:

Battle of the Peak (Gandalf and the Balrog)
Battle of Bywater! (Last battle of WR in the Shire)

plus

Battle of Anulzibar (sorry, haven't got my book handy to check the spelling) - Dwarves and Goblins/Orcs

Battle of the Ford of Isen - Saruman's forces and Rohirrim.

That is a valid answer, Saucepan Man, congrats! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img](the spelling:Azanulbizar)
Two other battles that would have been correct were the Battle of Greenfield (hobbits and orcs, TA 2747) and
the Battle of the Powers (between Valar and Melkor soon after awakening of the elves).

Battle of the Five Armies
Battle of Bywater
Battle of the Pelennor Fields
Battle of the Greenfields
Battle of Fornost (The Shire sent a company of bowmen...err...bow-hobbits.)

And actually the Battle of Gladden Fields is called by that name in quite a few places. With the number of men involved it really is considered a battle but oh well.

Congrats, Beren87. I must admit, I'd forgotten about the Battle of Fornost, which is why I was only asking for four ...

... Your turn. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Before which battle does Borondir suspect the Lady of the Golden Wood to be on his side and why does he make this assumption?

Sorry, I deleted my original post, because I realised that it was the Battle of the Field of Celebrant, not the Disaster of Gladden Fields as I put originally.

So my answer is:

Is it the Battle of the Field of Celebrant? There is a mist issuing forth from Lothlorien which allows Eorl's forces to attack with surprise.

Edit: Hmm, now that looks mighty strange, with Lindolirien's confirmation coming before my answer. [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

There be strange things afoot on the Downs. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

How many recorded Battles in ME have a name that is water-related and name each of them.

Ring

Battle of Bywater
Battles of the Fords of Isen
Battle of the Crossings of Isen
Battle of the Crossings of Poros
Battle of the Crossing of Erui
Battle of Unnumbered Tears (Hey tears are water too)

So that would be six unless I can't count.

There was the battle in the Fens of Serech in which Barahir saved Felagund, and then the battle where Beren kiled the dwarves who slew Thingol, and got the Silmaril back at Sarn Athrad. Oh yes and the Battle of Laketown in which Smaug was destroyed. I can't think of any others at the moment.
