    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    I really hope I'm wrong on this one, because if it's right then these threads are starting to become the Vilnas and Boraxxe Tolkien Trivia threads.

    Bilbo's stomach pops into my head. Not sure why and I don't have the text handy just now.

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    Nope, not Bilbo's stomach. I'm not sure it would be fair to pick something very mundane and non-LOTR specific like a stomach rumbling as the answer for our trivia questions. My riddle points directly to a person's name, but that person is as trivial a character as it is possible to be.

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    Had to rely to Google on an obscure name like that. So i'm going to guess that Rumble is referring to the working class Hobbits of Hobbiton.

    Thattickles, Thangorodread - Table Smashers

    i looked it up too, and was wondering if that was even in the books?

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    I feel like there could be a correlation between rumble and roar, meaning Bullroarer... He's not exactly trivial though, despite his only existing in a single line of The Hobbit.

    Edit: Nevermind. I know who you're talking about now. I was looking down the wrong lineage...

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    The clue points directly to a particular individual who is indeed named in the body of the text (as compared to the appendices), although I believe only once.

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    If it helps, the person is in fact a hobbit, and the reference takes place in one of the chapters that deals with events in the Shire.

    Yes indeed. It made me think of LOTRO's own Widow Froghorn when I noticed that in the text for the first time recently.

    To the group, the reference to Widow Rumble appears in RotK when Frodo is inviting Sam to move into Bag End. He reassures Sam that the Gaffer will be ok because he will be very well looked after by Widow Rumble.

    I had to look up Lisle apparently its a cotton used in stockings, so my answer is Saeros who lost his stockings (and everything else to Turin.

    Wrong definition of Lisle, sadly!

    (At least based on what I found.)

    Must be referring to Holly Lisle.
    Unfortunately, I am not familiar with her work.
    Maybe this will help someone else (that is, if it's on the right track).

    Morthaur's definition was a hair's breadth away from the intended definition.

    Could be a reference to the Cotton family. Rosie was who Sam was interested in.
    Maybe he was "Cotton-less" when he was traveling with the fellowship.

    Re: One-word Tolkien Trivia

    Ghosttaker strikes closer to the meaning, though you need shrink it down a bit...


    That which is lisle-less is not a character...

    Allow me to clarify: "Character" should have been "living or dead humanoid or beast".


    EDIT: Lisle is indeed thread for this riddle.

    Ah, but I do believe his waistcoat was torn. It is possible that they still have "threads" attached to them.

    This technically qualifies, though what I'm looking for is not made of thread either. And it's much larger.

    Vilnas gets next riddle, but I'm holding onto the riddle mantle until the actual answer is discovered!

    (I have a hint that should blow this wide open, but I'm withholding that for about ten more wrong answers.)

    No, but when it came down into Sam's hands he was concerned that it must have broken (he was sure he had tied it securely) but when he examined the end it was not frayed at all. That is one of the characteristics of lisle fabric: it is smooth and completed without frays.

    Just another stab in the dark.
