There is already an "Odd Man Out" thread , Tarien. Maybe you could try your luck there. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Or if you want to start a new quiz maybe this would then be the odd CREATURE out? Just a thought...

Tarien, you might want to Edit your first post a rename the thread. Just a suggestion as to not confuse.

And Elentarimir, if you're that worried about a new question, don't just yell out with no purpose, take time to PM Legolas, he is quite a busy person.

OK, this game has been renamed so as to differentiate it from Odd Man Out.

Would anyone like to ask a new question?

Bob, on multiple choice style threads like this, you should always give the reason for your answer. This ensures that no one gets the answer right on a 1 in 4 chance just by guessing.

So, you should explain why you think the Crebain are the odd creatures out (however obvious it may seem [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ).

Nope. Come on, guys! I know I'm being a nitpick with this one, but it's fun. Think of their features. Use those dead brains of yours! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Features??? Was it that Crebain were the only ones with beaks, feathers and wings, perhaps? Or Wargs the only ones that walked on four legs?
I'm sure Crebain is the answer for some reason or other. :/ It certainly appears the be the odd one out.
Was it that they were not neccessarily evil?

Gwaihir, you got it. It was that Crebain were the only ones that had wings and could fly, and you got the wings part so I'll give it to you.

Surely it can't be this, but....dragons, because there were lots of varieties- unlike all the birds, which were just thrushes (or whatever)?

Is it Thrushes, because the others have been altered in some way to make them more...interesting?

i.e. The Eagles have been made huge
The Crebain are Crows, but more evil
The Dragons can, er, talk

But the Thrushes can understand Thorin!

Hm.

Maybe it is thrushes?

Ooooh! I know!

It's Thrushes, because there was only one of them, whereas there were lots of Dragons, Eagles and Crebain.

Am I right? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Is it Dragons because there are wingless Dragons within Tolkien's works, Glaurung for example, whereas all Eagles, Crebain and Thrushes that appear are (not surprisingly) winged?

Choux, your persistance... hasn't paid off. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Sorry. Lyra's guess was good, but also wrong.
Saucepans, however, is right -- Dragons being the only creature that cannot neccessarily fly; well done, your turn.

Hmmm, I take it this is in relation to Tolkien somehow? =] In that case, Sheep, that race of mystical divine woolly things that bleateth and graze in the fields, as their meat is the only one recorded to be eaten in LotR (mutton).
