    Brandy Hall?

    So many possibilities...

    Angband with orcs issuing from many exits and overwhelming the attackers?

    Valinor with Noldorin exodus through different routes?

    you're thinking in terms of events there or seem to be - I'm thinking of a specific location during the first age whose name suggests/implies/states my two-worder.

    Lengthy guess, but what comes to mind is Smaug deducing the number and race of thieves by hunting their ponies.

    Orthanc is said to have a dual meaning of "Cunning Mind" in Old English, and "Mount Fang" in Sindarin, so combining the 2 meanings could lead to wisdom tooth.

    If it ain't what Boraxxe guessed I'm gonna go with the general 'dragon spell' which Bilbo almost surrendered to and spilled his guts to Smaug

    First thing that popped into my head was the sign Gandalf scratched into Bilbo's door. Ain't sure if a doorway is considered an arch, but gotta start somwewhere right?

    That's true, you do need to start somewhere.
    You started at the wrong place.
