    This is on the wrong track.

    Triple is the right track.

    OK then, for the next riddle let's try:
    Spirit's Embankment

    Dead Man's &&&&? The Breelander's name for the ruins of Fornost.

    EDIT: d-y-k-e which apparently is a profanity ffs.

    Exactly correct Stride. Deadman's Dike, better know as Fornost Erain.

    OK next one:

    concluding sovereign

  10. #1810
    If concluding sovereign refers to the last of a line of kings, there are a few options to choose from, but I will go with Ar-Pharazon, last King of Numenor for my guess.

    Reckon Aragorn could also fit the bill, as he brought a few things to conclusion including the rule of the Stewards of Gondor.

    Both on the right lines but not in the money.

    OK then, for my 2nd guess I'll go with Arvedui, whose name even means ‘Last King’.

    Correctamundo!

    "whose name even means ‘Last King" <-- that was the important bit that differentiates Arvedui from the other guesses.

    You're up.

    Well, I will venture the first thought which came to my mind, and that is Boromir with his famous horn, though your wording of "trumpet" instead of "horn" makes me suspect otherwise.

    And if multiple guesses are permitted in one reply, now that I think about it, with "loud" ~ "bold" and "trumpeter" ~ "hornblower", then "loud trumpeter" might refer to "Tobold Hornblower", the first cultivator of pipe-weed in the Shire?

    Loud trumpeter.... hmmm.... Could that be the battle of the Last Alliance in Mordor? Lots of Trumpeters there. Or it could be Boromir, who had the Horn of Gondor. Or would it be.. hmm.... A Cappy/Champ from in game?

    I have recently started reading Silmarillion again. I especially like the more mythological parts of the beginning; Valar, Maiar. I'm not sure if the English translation is the same, but in the language my copy of Silmarillion is written with, Oromë's name means 'one who plays a horn/trumpet' or 'blaring of horn'. My guess is Oromë
    "'Nonetheless they will have need of wood', said Aulë and he went on with his smith-work."

    I'll guess an Oliphaunt.

    I wouldn't say Oliphaunt, moreso the army of Harad.

    Yes, fairly straight forward, and the english translation is basically the same. Oromë had a great horn called the Valaróma which could be heard above all other horns, its sound was supposedly like lightning cleaving the clouds. It is even said that its echoes made Melkor quail in Utumno.

    Your turn to befuddle us Dweorg!

    I say Grond too, but not as a Siege weapon, but as Morgoth's weapon.
