Well, actually, Lord of Angmar was right, so I guess he can indeed continue.

The Saucepan Man has been trapped in the Barrow!
Question

Just so there's no confusion, Lord of Angmar's question is:

At the memory of what battle do the Dwarves weep and the Orcs shudder?

Nope. The name of the guy who died in this certain battle means "survivor of the battle" if that helps any.

Right-o! Just because I feel like being difficult, this question is going to be a riddle:


We are partially rabbits,
Famous for bringing chocolate,
We are partially children,
Or an old tea-drinker's word for them,
We were named for our transports,
Our nassty, nassty transports,
Killed a king we did,
Killed his son we did,
And killed his other son who came along,
Yet killed were we, rather disgracefully,
While getting drunk, and drinking some more,
The place we died is something scouts do,
Oh woe are we, Oh woe are we.


Try making sense out of that one. The answer that I'm looking for is the battle where the answer to the riddle was slain.

I just found a quote:
Quote:
I remember it was long ago - in the time of the war between Sauron and the Men of the Sea ...
.
Could it be the war between Sauron and the Kings of Numenor, although I don't recall its exact name? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

All of them? Wow...
  • I suppose there were some when the Valar defeated Melkor the first time, when the Elves where just born.
  • They defeated Ungoliant when Morgoth had stolen the Silmarils.
  • Dagor-nuin-Giliath
  • They captured Maedhros after the battle.
  • Dagor Aglareb?
  • Nirnaeth Arnoediad
  • Dagor Bragollach
  • The Fall of Gondolin
  • The one that Glorfindel fought on the way out
  • War of Wrath
  • Durin's Bane killing Durin and Nain
  • Battle of the Peak

I think that's all...

Anyway, list the battles of the WotR.

Several. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Also, I don't count Dol Guldur as WotR, since it was around 80 years earlier.

I would like to add the following , the attack on Lothlorien and the battle of Dale. Rivendell was also under attack, but Im not sure if you count it as a war (the same with the Ents attack on Isengard).

I'm sure I forget one or two

Rivendell was never under attack. And you're still missing some.
