Turambar - I noticed that it was 2nd Age after posting too. But if it is stated that I am correct, I will bring it back to the 1st Age.

Yah you guessed it. Shoot, you guys are right it is the Second Age. Oh the shame! Will I ever live it down. Anywho, go ahead and bring us back Joy. I'll go and do penitence for my transgression.

P.S. Cool avatar Joy.

Dagor Bragollach ('Battle of the Sudden Flame') and the Ruin of Beleriand

Quote:
Thus began the fourth of the great battles, Dagor Bragollach, the Battle of Sudden Flame.
Quote:
Thus Turgon lived long in bliss; but Nevrast was desolate, and remained empty of living folk until the ruin of Beleriand.
Quote:
But many Men remained in Estolad, and there was still a mingled people living there long years after, until in the ruin of Beleriand they were overwhelmed or fled back into the East.

The wife of Fingolfin was Anaire. She remained on Aman mainly due to her friendship with Earwen. All her sons went with her father.

Sorry to break this to you Amathoronion, but only Joy may ask a question because she was the person to answer the previous question correct

The Quiz Room only allows you to ask a question when you have answered a question that somebody else asked, correctly

If you wish to start your own line of quizzes, you may add a "New Topic" on the main Quiz Room page.

Don't feel bad though, i have noticed that you are new to the downs, and may not have understood how this works

Keep looking for a question that you might know the answer to, then you can give the hardest question you can think of.

And if Joy is reading this....please give a question.

Welcome to the Downs Amathoronion !

Gees, Joy, this must be a mighty hard question your thinking of...or else you have forgotten First Age Trivia.

I'm gonna go with my instinct on this one and say that Joy is having a little break.

So, since this is a good quiz topic, and because i asked the question to Joy, I may as well continue the line of questioning.

If anyone has any objections, Let me know [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Ok, How did Brodda die, and who killed him.

He was in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, but he fled and was branded a coward. Let the points go to Pallando, I was just furthering the info.
