No problem, Gothmog, I should still have known that Orcrist was called Biter (not wondered which, Glamdring or Orcrist was called so). And perhaps I should also have remembered that the sword was buried on him...

#2 is correct, and I'll give it to Firefoot because of a more correct answer, and for a first time on the thread. Good guessing!

Sorry, I was away for a few days and yesterday I wasn't very creative...

After trying to make a difficult enough but still mindful question for half an hour I conclude that it is an impossible task for me.

So, anyone can take the thread now, and I continue to practise my question-making skills...

With a name like that, it has to be a messenger from Eorl...so Anglo-Saxon...

Hengest, isn't that one of the earliest characters of Tokien's world? Named after the myth of a man who is said to have conquered Britain, and Britain was supposed to be Tol Eressea in the early Tokien works?

I know I've read this in UT, but I don't have a copy with me right now... The brothers Horst and Hengest or something like that seems familiar...I could be totally wrong

My answer is A if I'm not clear enough.

Right, that's what I meant... Got the English booktitles confused, sorry about that.

The name Hengest is interesting. Probably from the word Hengst=Stallion in Old English. Stallion=Hingst in Swedish. Something for Rune's thread about Tolkien and Norse myths maybe?

Anyway:

Tauremornaloma

1. One of the older Ents
2. Other name for Taur-nu-Fuin (in Dorthonion, not Mirkwood)
3. Other name for Oromë
4. Eöl's home
5. Other name for Fangorn

Good luck!

Number 5 it is. I've only come across that name once, and it's in Treebeard's song to Merry and Pippin on their way to his "house". I hope I understood the text correctly and that it is an old name for Fangorn... he also names Amraborna, Aldaloma and Tauremorna. If anyone knows anything more about these names, please pm me...

Your turn Firefoot.
