V?

CHAIN TV

"---/ hav-/ ---n/ -nt-/, -/ -in-/, -nt-/ --t/ --/ -an---n/ -----t/, -hich/ in/ ----/ t-n---/ ---/ ca--/ th-/ -nt----/. -i-/ ---/ thin-/ that/ th-/ na--/ -a-/ -iv-n/ -n--/ in/ i---/ -anc- ?"

Merry Christmas!

AGH! I know it but I don't know the whole thing and I don't know what book it's in. :(

The last part is "Did you think that thy name was given only in idle fancy?"

"---/ hav-/ ---n/ -nt-/, -/ -in-/, -nt-/ --t/ --/ -an---n/ -----t/, -hich/ in/ ----/ t-n---/ ---/ ca--/ th-/ -nt----/. Did/ you/ think/ that/ thy/ name/ was/ given/ only/ in/ idle/ fancy ?"

You're KILLING me :Merisu:

Blind Guardian 12-26-2021 08:14 PM

Oh, I just realized I didn't give a guess.

How about O?

I know the second word is HAVE, but the fourth word can be ENTS or ONTO, or maybe something else. So let's clear that up.

Blind Guardian 12-26-2021 08:17 PM

I'm leaning strongly towards Lord of the Rings.

You have...something...maybe about Ents? Was it Gandalf that said this?

Guinevere 12-27-2021 03:08 AM

HAVOC TIN

"-o-/ hav-/ ---n/ -nt-/, O/ -in-/, -nt-/ o-t/ o-/ -an-o-n/ -o---t/, -hich/ in/ -o--/ ton---/ -o-/ ca--/ th-/ -nt-oo-/. -i-/ -o-/ thin-/ that/ th-/ na--/ -a-/ -iv-n/ on--/ in/ i---/ -anc- ?"

(O was a very good choice! :) I was wondering why you didn't ask for more vowels...)

Blind Guardian 12-27-2021 01:22 PM

Oohh O was a good one!

"You/ have/ seen/ Ents/, O/ -in-/, Ents/ out/ of/ Fangorn/ Forest/, which/ in/ your/ tongue/ you/ call/ the/ Entmoot/. Did/ you/ think/ that/ thy/ name/ was/ given/ only/ in/ idle/ fancy ?"

Is the last bit "king"?

Guinevere 12-28-2021 04:48 AM

Now you nearly got it!
the sixth word is indeed "King"

Quote:

And in that first set of commas there is one lone letter. It's not an a or an I. I don't remember Tolkien using O by itself without an apostrophe. Hmm.
;)
and yes, it was Gandalf who said that to Theoden

There are two mistakes though: it's Entwood, not Entmoot! And of course not "thy" name, but "the name"

Blind Guardian 12-30-2021 09:34 PM

Do you want me to continue or should we wait a bit and see if Morsul joins us again?

Blind Guardian 01-06-2022 12:48 AM

Okay I'll just throw one up here in case someone wants to participate

"----, --- ---- -- --- ----, ---- ------- ----. ---- -- --- ---, --- ---- -- --- ----. --- -- ---- --- --- ---- --- ------ -- --- -------. ---- ----- -- -- ---- --?"

Guinevere 01-10-2022 04:55 AM

I'll start rightaway with asking my favourite letter: O

Blind Guardian 01-13-2022 04:02 PM

"----, --- ---- -- -o- -o--, --o- ----- -o ----. ---- -- --- ---, --- ---- -- --- ----. --- -- ---- -o- --- -o-- --- ------ -o o-- ----o--. ---- ----- -- -o ---- --?"

I missed a space at the end of the first sentence. It's corrected now.

Guinevere 01-15-2022 03:15 AM

Let's have some T, please

Blind Guardian 01-17-2022 04:01 PM

"----, t-- T--- -- -o- to--, --o- ----t to ---t. ---- -- --- ---, --- ---- -- t-- ----. --t -- ---- -ot --t -o-- --- ------ to o-- ----o--. ---t ----- -- -o --t- -t?"

OT

Guinevere 01-20-2022 04:22 AM

S please

Guinevere 01-20-2022 04:43 AM

Wait, I think I found it! :) The last sentence seems to be "What shall we do with it?"
and that leads me to the Council of Elrond:

"Well, the Tale is now told, from first to last. Here we all are, and here is the Ring. But we have not yet come any nearer to our purpose. What shall we do with it?"

Blind Guardian 01-23-2022 02:11 PM

Yes it is! Wow that was easy :D
