I like trivia <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>I'll start by asking a question, and whoever is first to post the right answer gets to post the next question. Easy enough, I suppose.<BR><BR>I'll start with a semi-hard one:<BR><BR>What was the name of the seer who spoke in the days of Arvedui, last king at Fornost?

uh... Bilbo?? or Frodo. I think it was Frodo. I could be totally wrong. But I don't think so.<BR><BR>my question - Which dwarf killed that that big nasty dargon. (can't believe I forget) I'll give hint to make easier because it;s so vague.<BR><BR>Which dwarf-king of Belegost killed which big nasty dragon?? <BR><BR><BR>2-in-one!!!

Uh-oh -- we're branching here. SAM finished the Red Book. Frodo, when he gave it to Sam, said "The last pages are for you."<BR><BR>And nobody has said who King Elessar's chronicler was. I don't know, but I suspect the answer is in Unfinished Tales.

I'm quite sure it was Frodo.<BR><BR>First one to answer my question can just move it on, or prove my answer wrong. Remember, it was at the BEGINNING of the 4th age if we're gonna get technical.

Findegil, yes. But he was just a copyist, it says. (This is in the last section of the Prologue. I had forgotten.) I maintain that it was Sam who actually finished WRITING the Red Book.

OH GOD I AM SO STUPID! I DON'T KNOW ANY OF THESE! Just don't wet yourself. I really wish I could help. What's the order now, anyway? I got kind of confused by the wrong answer posting a question. Is his answer wrong? Does his question count? (This is a question to Loccrist, not part of the Trivia, just to prevent more confusion.)

I always thought the King's chronicler was Findegil. He is also mentioned as completeing the Red Book of Westmarch, or so I thought.<BR>Well, I meant Findegil anyway, so Elbren was right.<BR><BR>I don't rememmber a Dwarflord of Belegost slaying a Dragon. What I do know is that Azaghal, Dwarf King of Belegost was slain in a brave attempt to kill Glaurung. He was slain by Glaurung in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad.<BR><BR>My next quetsion then:<BR><BR>"What was the name of the tower where one ofElendil's Palantir was kept" Hint: The Palantir was always directed towards the West

The tower was called Elostirion.<BR><BR>And by the way, Mithlond was NOT a kingdom, its just the elven name for the Grey Havens and they were considered part of Lindon. The two kingdoms founded at the beginning of the Second Age were Lindon and Eregion.<BR><BR>My turn: What is the only place in ME where a dwarven word and a Quenya word are combined to give that place its name?

I'm going to guess "Barad-dur", but I'm any idiot so feel free to point and laugh at me. I don't have any clue if I'm right, and if I am, expect the next question to be extremely easy.<BR><BR>Loccrist, do you mind if I start a "ME trivia for idiots" thread? Don't mean to steal your idea, but this stuff is WAY too hard for me and I like trivia.<BR><BR>

Go for it Fatty <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> I don't know any of this stuff either. I'm way more versed on LotR than I am the Sil and everything after. Maybe I could actually know some of the stuff on the idiots one <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>
