Well, that "minute" could have been mere seconds, as 11:08.52 and 11:09:03 is separated not by a minute.

Oh, get off it! She posted first!

Alright Nil, Finwë's been gone too long. It's your thread now since you also had the correct answer!

Haha... all right...

In the name of which battle was Niobe's stream involved?


This'll take a little knowledge about Greek mythology as well.

1695-1699 Second Age, it was Sauron VS. the elves of Eregion, Lindon and Lothlorien, the dwarves of Moria and the men of Numenor.

Hehe, yeah. We are just sooo good.

In what battle was the first time someone broke through the gate of Minas Tirith, and who was it?

I somehow feel like I'm falling into a trap when I say this..
In 457 FA, Sauron took Minas Tirith (and most likely broke its gate). But you were most likely referring to the Battle of Pelennor Fields in 3018 TA in which Grond under the command of the Witch King was hurled thrice against the gate of Minas Tirith by great mountain trolls.

Oh, clever to find that one too...I hadn't even thought about it. You are right though, it was that pesky Witch-King. But on the other hand, he had to pay for it a short while thereafter.

It was the battle of the Pelennor Fields I believe, wasn't it Theoden? Or was it Fingolfin riding to Angband?

It was indeed fun. I think you should try out my anagrams, nobody does that.

Yes, it was Theoden on his first charge of the Pelennor.
Hmm well anagrams have never been my strong point, but I'll give it a whirl.

Too tired to think of something hard... In what greater battle was Anduril first used?

I don't know if there were any dwarves in Bragollach or Aglareb, but you're correct on the other ones. Please continue!

Unnumbered Tears? Which brothers were slain there?

Anyway, I'll say Pelennor Fields (Derufin and Duilin) and Dagor Bragollach (Angrod and Aegnor).
