Do you perhaps mean Thorin? Anyway, the last thing that Balin said to Bilbo in the book was...

Quote:
"The new Master is of wiser kind,' said Balin, "and very popular, for, of course, he gets most of the credit for the present prosperity. They are making songs which say that in his day the rivers run with gold."
If you meant Thorin...

Quote:
"No!" said Thorin. "There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more men valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. But sad or merry, I must leave it now. Farewell!"

Would that be four? I assumed that you were talking about when the spiders were talking about the strung-up dwarves.

All right. What did Thorin say to Bilbo that he later repented?

That they (the dwarves) should give him little of the treasure 'cause he was no longer their friend (squabbling little dwarves are like children, honestly).

Hirilaelin, please read the Quiz Room Rules. We give ten days before we move on, and that applies to all threads in the Quiz Room.

I don't know if 8 is the answer Beren87 is looking for, but here is where I got it:
Quote:
The day after the battle with the spiders Bilbo and the dwarves made one last despairing effort to find a way out before they died of hunger and thirst. They got up and staggered on in the direction which eight out of the thirteen of them guessed to be the one in which the path lay;...
Chapter 9: Barrels Out of Bond

It says "eight out of the thirteen of them" not "eight dwarves" so it a little iffy.

I agree, ten days is too long! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I feel more comfortable with three. Players like to play! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Anyway, I didn't make the rules, so it doesn't really matter what I think! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

all right, but i really thought that was the answer.... know i'm all confused! and I don't think that any dwarf had a silver hood with light blue tassel. counld have sworn so...

Quote:
Then they hung up two yellow hoods and a pale green one; and also a sky-blue one with a long silver tassel. This one belonged to Thorin, an enormously important dwarf...

Hoods: dark green (Dwalin), scarlet (Balin), 2 blue (Fili and Kili), 2 purple (Dori and Nori), grey (Ori), brown (Oin), white (Gloin), 2 yellow (Bifur and Bofur), pale green (Bombur), sky-blue with a long silver tassel (Thorin).
This is from the long expected party, I don't remember any other dwarf hood colors being discussed. Did Dain's crew wear colored hoods? I just remember mention of weapons and armour type garb! I think you two are on to something! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

If you read this thread, you will understand why Beren can't continue his threads.

At what stage in The Hobbit a hidden rock mentioned.

Thank you Pallando, for both the answer and the question. As for the answer...

Would it be with the trolls? I'm thinking not... Well, here's my other guess. The hidden rock door? I really have no clue. Must read the book again!
