Ah, but you forgot the rule: they never get past the quarter finals. I might pop into the other game today. We'll see.

Ladies & Gentlemen I hate to say it but I have been defeated and that sort of stuff. I've got a crazy notion but I guess its just a crazy notion and since my books aren't with me(I'm starting to wonder if they really are mine.), I can't try it out.
So with any hopes perhaps a hint or something like that would be in order.
And with any luck I may not yet have been beaten.
We need more of these kind of quotes.

Pipe Bump...

There have only been two guesses, so I'm reluctant to provide a clue at this early stage. After all it's already narrowed down to a single volume of The Lord of the Rings; how much more of a hint do you need?

But Arvedui did not take his counsel. He thanked him, and at parting gave him his ring, saying: "This is a thing of worth beyond your reckoning. For its ancientry alone. It has no power, save the esteem in which those hold it who love my house. It will not help you, but if ever you are in need, my kin will ransom it with great store of all that you desire."(emphasis mine)
It is from Appendix A, specifically The North-kingdom and the Dúnedain.

Alas!

Sorry to start a 'back-and-forth' affair, but I recognized this one instantly; it is Gandalf, speaking about his guess that Denethor was in possession of a palantír.

Has anyone else noticed how often the word 'alas' appears in Lord of the Rings dialogues?

Oops, I nearly forgot this thread, sorry!
Of course your answer is correct, Son of Númenor!
And, yes, I've noticed the many instances of "Alas!" as well, and I do like this word! It is not used in every day English anymore, is it?

The quote is from TTT. That'll teach me to use an online version of Lord of the Rings.
