    "A mighty snow-clad peak that rose in the inner regions of the White Mountains. From its feet sprang the Snowbourn River, whose widening valley ran northwards through the mountains to emerge onto the plains of Rohan. The Rohirrim called that valley Harrowdale, and built their courts of Edoras at its mouth, from where the lonely white peak of the Starkhorn could be seen along the straight length of the valley."
    I look forward to your riddle, Vilnas!

    Alright, I'm going to try and make this one as intentionally difficult as I can:

    Forest breeze.

    Creative answers, but not what I had in mind, and not airtight enough for me to award the cup for an alternative answer.

    This is going to require some lateral thinking.

    Forest breeze:

    Withywindle (willow-winding)

    I'm pretty sure this is wrong but heck, maybe I'll get another clue....

    Perhaps you're thinking of the breeze Bilbo felt when he emerged above the trees in Mirkwood, after climbing up?

    Hmm. I have no idea how to disqualify that. You may take that as the winner if you like. If you want to keep guessing, I'm looking for something that isn't actually a forest breeze, but a two step process using synonyms of the original clue. It's up to you Sir-rinthian.

    That's a really good guess... If you end up right, you can have the riddlers cup - if not, I'll see what I can come up with...

    Edit: Oooh.... I know what I could ask... *giggles mischievously*

    That was indeed my intended answer - either that or clarinets. Nicely done. I will leave it to you and Sir-rinthian to determine who goes next.

    Ok. Here is the next one.
    This is either really easy or really hard. I have proven that I cannot determine what other folks find easy to solve.

    Cordial stag.

    The only stag I can remember in any of the books is the one shot by Thorin at the black river in Mirkwood. The one that was polite enough to drop dead just on the other side of the river where they couldn't get it

    An interesting and literal answer, but incorrect.
    One way I would describe a riddle is that in essence it is word play.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    Vacation time = clue time

    This is similar to Vilnas' last one in that synonyms are your friends. It's not a two-step though.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    I wonder.... Synonyms and antonyms, maybe?


    The Bullroarer? Bull = synonym of Stag, and roarer would kind of be an antonym of cordial.


    Being that it's been a week with no activity here, anyone want a spare riddle to guess just for fun?

    Still on the wrong track.
    Synonyms are what is needed....BTW, both cordial and stag are used in this riddle as nouns.

    When you first introduced this, my first though on "cordial" was miruvor, the cordial of Imladris. Still not seeing how that fits in with stag though.

    Now you are on the right track, just the wrong words. There are other cordials...

    Miruvor was also sometimes referred to as the "liquor" of Imladris. It could be you are using that somehow, or it may be that you are going for another type of cordial altogether.

    Still not sure how to tie it to stag though. I had actually been thinking of "stag" in the sense of "solo" rather than "antlered deer" but you said it was being used as a noun.

    Just looking for a clarification:

    You entered Interment, not internment. You did not intend internment.
