Either that or his fear of the bears/orcs/etc would have worked.

Your turn Liriodendron.

All right......Hmmmm, What was Gandalf doing when he got the map (and key) of The Lonely Mountain from Thrain?

Meeting the Necromancer for tea, of course. He has a nasty habit of showing up for things like that, just ask Bilbo.

Now seriously. He was spying to see who the Necromancer really was. Sauron or a Nazgul, or just some random evil bad guy? It was of course Sauron.

I was looking for the specific words Gandalf used to describe his "spying". Sort of cute for a crotchety wizard. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Ok, so he was finding things out as usual, and a nasty dangerous business it was too!

What languages does Gandalf claim to know (in the Hobbit only) other than the Common Speech?

That is true, but it is only one language. More!

Question

....."a great grey wolf. He spoke to them in the dreadful language of the Wargs. Gandalf understood it. Bilbo did not, but it sounded terrible to him",

Exactly what kind of "more" do you want! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

I think he also understood the language of Bears.

Quote:
I once saw him sitting all alone on the top of the Carrock at night watching the moon sinking towards the Misty Mountains, and I heard him growl in the tongue of bears; 'The day will come when they will perish and I shall go back!'

He knew the "correct" thing to say to an eagle! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

"May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks."

But the eagles are speaking the common tounge (I think!) [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

It has been a couple of days and I really like this thread. Since I got the first (of many) correct answers, I'm going to go ahead and ask a question.
After the riddle competition had officially started, what idea was rather on Bilbo's mind?

With the exception of Gandalf & Co. their usual purpose was to look for food & prisoners to work in their mines.

A necklace of silver and pearls that Dain had given him at their parting. (I could have sworn I answered this a couple of hours ago! [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] )

It's not the most expansive of works is it? But of course, pearls are correct. Feel free to conjure up something really obscure [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

No! ha ha, I really meant a "posting" problem! But you are right, Coming up with a good question is more of a challenge than finding the answers! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] (sometimes) [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Well, here's something I always thought hilarious....Who was called a "descendant of rats"?

Extra points for Beren, but I think I will go.

After Bilbo and co. were rescued by the Eagles, the next day, what did Bilbo go to do when he woke up?
