    where do you get all these answers?
    I got no books to refer to, everyone wants to borrow them and read them.

    Well it started out as a game that questions and answers could be found in the texts - so people would have to skim through the certain chapter to find the answer. Now JP and I and probably Graal know about this web site:

    [link=http://www.glyphweb.com/arda/default.htm]The Encyclopedia of ARDA[/link]

    its quite in-depth!

    but people cant keep getting Questions from here - as the thing in question MUST STILL BE FROM THE BOOKS (and im not sure if the "race of hobbit" that gollum is from - IS mentioned - so JP is naughty. nevermind.

    try to keep it to the books - but if you find a closly related question - you can use it i spose.

    Bombur!

    "I'm always last and I don't like it," said Bombur.


    Q. In FotR, who first identified the Balrog?
  13. SithForceLord Jedi Master

    Correct!

    Poor fat Bombur

    I especially liked the part where Gandalf tells all the dwarves to come in pairs 5mins apart (when going to meet Beorn) He and Bilbo go first and when Gandalf gives a whistle the next pair comes (every 5 mins or so). To start Gandalf tells Bombur he's last - and he will be alone as he is the size of two! [face_laugh] Then when the last pair are called Bombur doesn't wait at all and follows immediately. :p

    And yes - again he is last when crossing the stream/river in Mirkwood (which is where Sil has quoted from).

    I shall wait until the morrow to answer Sil's Q - for someone else can try first.

    Who sings the following song (I'd like who sings it - what are they singing about and when are they singing it)?

    Down the swift dark stream you go
    Back to the lands you once did know!
    Leave the halls and caverns deep,
    Leave the northern mountains steep,
    Where the forest wide and dim
    Stoops in shadows grey and grim!
    Float beyond the world of trees
    Out into the whispering breeze,
    Past the rushes, past the reeds,
    Past the marsh's waving weeds,
    Through the mist that risith white
    Up from mere and pool at night!
    Follow, follow stars that leap
    Up the heavens cold and steep;
    Turn when dawn comes over land,
    Over rapid, over sand,
    South away! and South away!
    Seek the sunlight and the day,
    Back to pasture, back to mead,
    Where the kine and oxen feed!
    Back to gardens on the hills
    Where the berry swells and fills
    Under sunlight, under day!
    South away! and South away!
    Down the swift dark steam you go
    Back to the lands you once did know!


    (I doubt you'll find those answers on the ARDA site :p :D)

    Is it the mirkwood elves, when they put the barrels (with dwarves in) in the water after bilbo uses his magic ring to free the dwarves in the hobbit. they are singing to the barrels, whilst hoisting them into the stream to return them to the lakemen for refilling

    well I thought that was quite good considering I haven't read the hobbit since I was 12...

    where do the paths of the dead lead to and what happens there?

    It leads out the back of some hills.

    And actually NOTHING happens there, even though everyone walking through it gets s&*% scared.

    EDIT: OK, some ghosts get released.

    (Can you tell I was let down by that chapter, I was expecting something really freaky happening in there, and well, it didn't really eventuate - my money's on it being dropped from the ROTK movie).

    one thing im waiting for on the edge of my seat in the next LOTR movies - the dead marshes - I WANNA SEE THE DEAD GUYS IN THE SWAMPS!

    :p - with the special effects i assume its gonna be MINT!

    Actually they lead to Gondor or if you prefer Erech

    (JP has my book - which holds the answer, im just using the map in the back of the fellowship book (this map is not a close up) so im just guessing - the large area IS Gondor - but the exact place, im not sure :p)
