    I am aware that this is a SW forum, yet my movie has much excitement surrounding it. That people have asked for such a thread here.

    To test JC'ers memory of names, places, things and events in Middle Earth. Texts allowed to be used include:

    "There and Back Again" - A Hobbits Tale, By Bilbo Baggins. (A.k.A - "The Hobbit")

    "The Fellowship of the Ring"

    "The Two Towers"

    "The Return of the King"

    I thought about that as I posted it, but I dont have the book with me so I couldnt do any research. I still got one!

    Am I right in saying Edoras? Because if you are thinking of Minis Tirith, it is not the capital of Rohan as Rohan is North East of Minis Tirith, and a number of leagues away too!

    ;) :D :p

    If I am right in that Bilbo killed Gollum in the original, this is my next question (and should have been my question before JP's :p)

    What does Legolas mean?

    SFL, I answered your Uruk Hai question correctly (from a certain point of view).

    Anyway Legolas means Greenleaf

    You haven't answered my jump-the-gun question correctly, so it will remain;

    In the original 1937 First Edition of "The Hobbit", what major event was re-written and subsequently changed in all other editions of the story?

    They are chapter names, not "events".

    The chapter entitled "Gollum's Cave" is where the changes occur.

    Anyone venture as to what they were (or what happened in the original book)?
