    Strider used bolsters in the prancing pony to fool the nazgul into thinking the Hobbits were asleep in their beds.

    There it is!
    Yes, he set up a charade in their rooms with the help of Nob....pillows stuffed under the blankets and stuff....

    'Well Masters,' said Nob, 'I've ruffled up the clothes and put in a bolster down the middle of each bed. And I made a nice imitation of your head with a brown woollen mat, Mr. Bag - Underhill, sir,' he added with a grin.

    No hits so far on "Fiery." Perhaps we should institute categories: Person, Place, Thing, etc. This one would be Person.

    I believe Feanor was described as having a very fiery spirit.

    That would have been my first guess after the additional clue.

    Instead I'll go with Aegnor.

    Feanor it is! The name means "spirit of fire." The fire of his spirit burned so fiercely that when he died, his body was burnt to ash. Now that's "fiery."

    Golfimbul, the goblin whose head was knocked into a hole by Bandobras Took. (There's an amusing stump-carving statue of this very act in-game in Brockenborings.)

    Anardil Aldarion - He was the lord of Numenor's fleets during the reign of Tar-Meneldur, as well as the leader of the Mariners Guild, as I believe it was called. Also, he was named by Gil-Galad "The greatest Elf Friend that is now among men, as I deem"

    Hmm... Anardil Aldarion was of the line of Eärendil - is it Eärendil the Mariner?

    Bilbo discovered at 11:00 that he had forgotten his pocket handkerchief (while running to catch up to the dwarves).
