    Captain's Folly:
    My next guess would be Arvedui refusing the counsel of the Lossoth and getting aboard the ship that would be wrecked by a storm of the Witch-king ending the line of the kings and losing two of the palantiri.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    No. Now I'm worried my original answer isn't that good....

    The answer is a place, if that helps.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    A place, hmmm...

    Would it be Amon Hen, where Boromir (we seem to be coming back to him with this riddle) succumbed to the call of the Ring?

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    If it is a place my guess would be Umbar, where Ar-Pharazon the Golden decided to capture Sauron and bring him to Numenor as a "hostage."

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    Folly actually can have a specific meaning in connection with a place. It means something to the effect of an building or structure that is inordinately extravagant but of little practical purpose. It could be that Konstantin is using it in that sense, but I am struggling to think of an example of such a structure in LotR, much less one that was built by a "captain."

    Did Aldarion the great sea-captain build such a structure for Erendis? Would his massive ship count? I wouldn't think so since I don't recall it having an accident and sinking.

    Did Earnur build anything that might qualify?

    There is Bronwe's Folly in near Archet in LOTRO, but that was invented for the game and as I recall Berephon just made up the name Bronwe (or rather appropriated for use with LOTRO without a lore basis).

    Vinyalonde was considered a folly by Tar Aldarions daughter and fell into disuse and wasnt compeleted untill the war between Sauron and the elves.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    Im pretty sure the Old Winyards vintage of 2980 was known as "Captains Folly" to commemorate the drunken night time boating antics of "Captain" Drogo Baggins.

    All good answers, everyone, but Morthaur you are correct. Tar-Aldarion was the "Great Captain", and even in his lifetime most thought Vinyalonde to be folly (considering it fell apart almost every single time he left Middle-Earth).

    Your riddle, sir.

    Muppet Grandfather:
    My first guess would have to be Gaffer Gamgee.

    Muppet Grandfather:

    Celeborn, son of Galadhon, son of Elmo. :P

    (Technically, this answer doesn't jive with the guidelines laid out by Boraxxe in the OP.)

    ROFLCOPTER

    If that is indeed the answer, then that has to be the best JRRT trivia question ever.

    *SNOW DAY HERE*

    Well a muppet makes it not sound like the free people so maybe it's a bad guy. Maybe Old Man Willow in FotR?

    Tom Bombadil? He is oldest and fatherless, a grandfather is generally one of the oldest of the family, and often his father is dead. As to muppet: He was a children's doll.

    Correct, be sure to tell that old stiffneck Celeborn that his grandfather was a muppet next time you see him, reference for Elmo is UT 233-234 so I guess BUG is doubly right.

    For the relatively new participants in our trivia threads, UT stands for Unfinished Tales, one of the volumes of JRRT's writings about Middle-earth assembled, edited and published after JRRT's death by his son Christopher.

    The OP guidelines Morthaur and BUG are referring to indicate that the answers to the questions in this thread must be found in the three "canon" works - LotR, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion. For my part I'm prepared to waive the limitation for particularly excellent riddles like this one.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    Yeah, I'm not stuck on the rule, myself. Though I think the game is a bit more democratic the more we stick with the well-known works.

    New one: "Mighty Mite".

    There's a few good answers I can think of offhand, but I'm looking for a particular one.

    If I stray into esoterica, its because its so hard finding tricky riddles for you guys.

    Mighty Mite:

    The Stripling Thorin Oakenshield (aged 53) at the battle of Azanulbizar.

    My vote is on a different dwarf, Dain, only half Thorin's age when he "bounded up" the east gate steps and took Azog's head.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    My thoughts went more towards the Hobbits then the Dwarves. Hobbits are small, as are Dwarves, but Hobbits went, as mites, relatively unnoticed in the big scheme of things.

    So... Samwise Gamgee?

    It's not the inestimable Samwise Gamgee.
