    wood?
    The first answer is close however if that were to properly be the answer, my clue would have had to be 'agile smiler' as opposed to just 'smiler'.

    You are getting away from "Quickbeam". I had said 'agile smiler' was the clue, Quickbeam would be the answer. But my clue was 'smiler'.

    Then the answer should be "beemer", but, alas, BMW never exported to Middle-Earth...

    beam+er.
    The -er is an agentival suffix now for the most part but originally was far more broad and was used to indicate 'one who has something to do with'
    The 'ray of light' meaning of beam is not the original meaning of the word.
    The 'piece of wood' meaning of beam is not the original meaning of the word but is in fact close to it.
    The original meaning is simply 'tree'.
    So, the answer is 'someone who has something to do with trees' and whose name should now clearly be seen to indicate that, if you do some sleuthing with the philological background here provided.

    ok, I was thinking alda -> tree in Quenya and possibly oron -> tree in Sindarin

    next:
    Quisling

    Hint: there's a reason it's "Quisling" and not "Benedict Arnold", who is probably referred to in higher degree in America, for these cases. (reason not only being that this is the one-word trivia;-)

    Let's see... So essentially we have collaborationism without direct official defection.
    The prime example would be Saruman then. Who was even judged and punished in the end (so to speak) mirroring Quisling himself.

    A good line of thought. But I'd like to have one more part of this stand out a bit more. Another character, but your guess isn't far off

    Indeed it is. I think of it as if Saruman would have succeeded in conquering Rohan I think it is possible that Gríma would have been selected as the head of the marionette government. Provided that Rohan wouldn't have been completely destructed and fed to the half-orcs, which come to think about it, would be the likelier scenario.

    Anyway, Boraxxe's up.

    PS. Has anyone else had trouble with posting on the forums?

    Sorry it has taken so long. I forgot that this was on my plate.

    Here's the clue:

    How about Aragorn and Arwen walking 'unshod' on Cerin Amroth?

    I have not heard that walking barefoot is considered streaking.

    Hmm would that be Golfimbul, Who came from Mt Gram? Or then Bullroarer who knoked his head off? Or the 8th king of Rohan?
    Chrisandir, man Captain 100 | Raxus dwarf Guardian 51 | Chrorin dwarf Hunter 30 | Strillo hobbit Burglar 3 | Butche man Champion 29 |

    I'll trust your word on that, weighing warg drool is beyond my dedication level. :P
    But there is a reason I used capital g in "Gram".

    No, the clue itself doesn't come from Tolkien legendarium. It's a different Gram.

    Looking through Google, would Gram happen to be the sword of Sigmund, which was broken by Odin? In which case....maybe it could relate to Narsil/Anduril?
