    One-word Tolkien Trivia

    Yeah....an experiment.
    One word with a question mark should lead to only one answer.
    I'll start.

    Fatherless?

    Edit:

    Rule #1: Subject matter is limited to JRR Tolkien's major canon works;

    The Silmarillion
    The Hobbit
    The Lord Of The Rings
    The Adventures Of Tom Bombadill
    The Children Of Hurin

    (No movies, Radio or Lotro)

    I know what you're looking for, but I'm going to be a jerk and say "iluvatar"

    Are you suffering from seasonal affective disorder?

    You are correct in that I was not looking for Iluvatar. And by the way, can you site a passage where it is stated that Iluvatar is fatherless?

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    The only argument for him being fatherless I think is the fallacy of there being nothing that says otherwise...

    "You never hear of his father, so he must not have one!"

    Are you saying Iluvatar does have a father?

    Tom Bombadil is Fatherless! Durin is the 'Deathless' (in reference to another reply).
