    (Saruman as "coercive caller"... I need reminding. I can't think of when he would have filled that role.)
    Perhaps when Saruman is yelling at Grima to get up when they meet Gandalf and the hobbits on the road?

    Isn't Saruman's Jedi mind trick voice sufficiently coercive?

    On the "coercive caller" riddle, my suggestion would have been Sauron speaking to Pippen on the palantir.

    I did some thinking about a square-dance caller making the calls with a mean voice.

    It looks as if you have made a Boraxxe error.
    Could be mistaken though....I have been before...once anyway.

    Would that be the musical crackers from Dale at the birthday party? The tent there was big enough to enclose the Party Tree.

    Alrighty then:

    Impossibly swift

    A caveat - this one is opinion. While I won't say it is inarguable, I think it is very easily defended.

    Shadowfax?

  17. #1317

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    Nope. I totally expected that answer and should have DQ'd it in advance. I think Tolkien pushed the boundaries of realism there, but still kept Shadowfax's speed within the boundaries of the possible within the general parameters of his quasi-magical world.

    How about the promptness of Tom when he shows up to save the hobbits in the barrow downs?

    Gah. That's a winner although not the one I wanted. Same idea though.

    You get the stick, and I will hold the question open if anyone cares to try again.

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    All right, I'm new to this thread (do you know how long it takes to read 75+ pages of these riddles?) so I may be mistaken, but would that be Isil before Tilion was burned?

    In Gimli's song (FotR):
    "The world was young, the mountains green,
    No stain yet on the Moon was seen,
    No words were laid on stream or stone
    When Durin woke and walked alone."

    Welcome iorviel!

    I was really hoping a newbie or someone who hadn't posted in awhile would take a go!

    That seems like an excellent guess to me!

    Welcome indeed, iorviel! Not only have you answered correctly, but quite
    poetically as well. You are up.

    (And yes, it takes a long time to get through these riddle threads, but methinks the knowledge gained is well
    earned.)

    Re: Two-word Tolkien Trivia

    hullo there! I'm also new so I'm not exactly sure how well I'm understanding these riddles but....
    Anyway, as for my guess, it could be: The race of Man - this could come from the idea that the race of man weren't truly believers of the Valar?
    Another more specific guess could be Turin? being that he was very faithless by the end and volunteered to slay Glaurung?
    Third and final guess is Gollum, being that he sought to learn all the secrets of Middle-Earth, and volunteers to guide the bobbies to Mordor.
