    I'll take a shot in the dark here. Gollum as he followed the Fellowship down the Great River?

    Strider speaking from FOTR -

    Since we took to boats, he has been lying on a log and paddling with his hands and feet. I have tried to catch him once or twice at night; but he is slier than a fox, and as slippery as a fish.

    Haha thats the one. Nice job.
    Well, I suppose you could always say "flame resistant sunglasses" if you prefer that to "shoes"

    Heh - I wondered whether it might be an elf hearing Bilbo:

    "That was no fish!" one said. "There is a spy about. Hide your lights! They will help him more than us, if it is that queer little creature that is said to be their servant."

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    You know you can never have enough alliteration!

    Recovered Relation

    This one might be stretching things a bit, but I think it still falls within the rules.

    How about Frodo at the Prancing Pony (still more alliteration).

    There were several Underhills from Saddle, and as they could not imagine sharing a name without being related, they took Frodo to their hearts as a long-lost cousin.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    How about Theoden?

    He was uncle to Eomer and Eowyn so he was a relation.

    And, he was suffering from either possession or poisoning at the hands of Grima/Saruman and when treated by Gandalf he recovered.

    So while he was transforming from crotchety-old-crippled-guy into big-strong-king-that-kicks-butt he was a recovering relation.

    Yet another very good answer that is still wrong. Closer though in the sense that the recovery was an actual event. This one may be harder than I thought. The event in question is less...public.

    How about Hurin recovering what was left of his family; Morwen when he found her at the site where the stone was marking the deaths of Turin and Nienor?

    Or Faramir finding Boromir's body by the Anduin in Osgiliath?
    Or Frodo escorting Lobelia Sackville-Baggins out of the Lockholes?

    Starting to look like a wide field! Maybe it's time to think more obliquely.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    Wow! I didn't realize there would be that many possibilities!

    Maybe a few more clues then. The relative was recovered alive, but you might say it was not an altogether happy ending. No hobbits men or dwarves were involved as far as I know.

    Oh well in that case, what about Maedhros?

    Okay then, keeping in the spirit of all the alliteration...

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    Just a friendly reminder, these riddle games work best if qualifying answers are accepted, even if not the answer that was intended. When workable answers are rejected without giving a basis to distinguish them, the guessers can get discouraged. We should try and avoid the "guess which of several correct answers I am thinking of" game if possible.

    You're absolutely right. I stretched that one a bit too far, especially considering I've won several without actually getting the intended answer. In retrospect, Boraxxe's Frodo answer was both clever and perfectly acceptable. I'll try to keep this in mind in the future!

    The "messenger" that came to ask Dain at the Lonely Mountain about a hobbit thief and the "least" of rings.

    Well, not what I had in mind, but that works too. You're up, Boraxxe.

    Attempting additional alliteration:

    feathered forks



    BTW Itaras, the coercive caller you had in mind...was it the Mouth of Sauron?

    the eagles

    And no, it was actually Saruman.

    Eagles is correct.

    Bilbo speaking after being rescued along with the dwarves and wizard: "Now I know what a piece of bacon feels like when it is suddenly picked out of the pan on a fork and put back on the shelf!"

    Your turn.


    (Saruman as "coercive caller"... I need reminding. I can't think of when he would have filled that role.)
