    I'm not sure if the timing is correct (haven't read Silmarillion in a long time!), but could it be Aule creating Kuzdul for the dwarves?

    Aulë was also a linguist, but not the one I am looking for.

    Clue: the one I'm seeking is an elf.

    Wasn't there an elf in Valinor who before Daeron and, I'm not sure, but maybe before Fëanor dabbled with written form of some early language? I can't remember the elf's name even if I am on the right track. :/

    Nice to hear that you thought it was a good thing. I "found" Rúmil recently when I was rereading Silmarillion for the n:th time and realized I didn't know squat about this one elf. It turns out there is some info about him in "The History of Middle-earth" too.

    Dweorg: Rúmil more than dabbled in some language - he was the first one to create a written language for the elves. A language that Fëanor later expanded and refined.

    You're up Urwendil!

    Neptunus rather than Poseidon with whom he was equated to be precise (and nitpicking ) but you are correct indeed

    I think the leading riddle-guesser is Boraxxe.

    My guess for the riddle, nonetheless, is Beorn. He's one of the most antisocial characters in Tolkien's works.

    Nope, not Beorn, even if the riddle fit for him too.

    Would gloomy be referring to Dark as in the Dark Elf Eöl?

    Exactly =) Pretty antisocial and gloomy, the Dark Elf that everyone hates! Still his swords are really good to cut contacts with other elves ;P

    You're up ^^

    Ok. This is quite farfetched - hope I'm wrong and someone comes up with the right answer really fast.

    Florence

    I had some clever idea a while ago but it seems I've forgotten it. My guess will be Minas Tirith because in my opinion it's closest to Florence in ME.
    "'Nonetheless they will have need of wood', said Aulë and he went on with his smith-work."

  18. #1968
    Nope, sorry that is not the answer I was looking for.

    I guess this one is so illogical I'll have to give a clue right away:

    The answer I'm looking for is the name of a character from one of the many books (might be in more than one too).

    Could it possibly be Luthien, by any chance....
    Well, I suppose you could always say "flame resistant sunglasses" if you prefer that to "shoes"

    Yes. Lúthien is the correct answer. I would also have accepted Melian.

    Florence was a reference to Florence Nightingale. Tinúviel = nightingale - that is Lúthien. Melian is also said to have been in the company of Nightingales wherever she went.

    You're up Itharas.

    Narchost and Carchost

    I hope I got the names right, if not the answer, without checking the book
