    I'm now in the sad position of being forced to pose a riddle I find less satisfying than the one I just answered! Hard act to follow. Oh well, here goes.

    Mining shield.

    Give us a clue please.

    This is a much more conventional riddle of the synonym type. I admit it's neither your typical miner nor your typical shield, though...

    Oak branch.

    Thorin used an oak branch as a shield during the dwarf/goblin war.

    Thorin is not your typical minor and an oak branch is not your typical shield.

    True, Thorin is typical in no way at all :P

    Good guess, but I don't think Thorin's shield would be very good at mining, whereas my preferred answer was.

    Hm, another hint?

    Not just a DwarfFriend like our friend here, but also an anthropophile.

    Hmm. This hint and the "mining" part makes me think of the famous elven "miner", Finrod also known as Felagund, son of Finarfin. Buuut, I have no idea about the shield.

    Dweorg gets it. Finrod was Beren's "shield" in Sauron's wolf-pits, where he lost his life.

    Ah, goody! 'twas a nice riddle there.

    Let's see if this riddle will be decent enough.

    Jolly roger

    Desparate guess just to keep my brain working: Túrin Turambar. He had an outlaw career

    A good guess but not correct.

    Not what I had in my mind, but certainly something that'd fit. Nonetheless, not correct this time.

    Goodness, I'm not that clever riddler at all. There's no shrewd or plot or trickstery in my riddles. They're quite straight-forward, heh.

    I have a baleful feeling that I did a crucial mistake with the riddle. It should have actually been a hint, I think.

    Hint: the answer contains no jollyness, neither rogers. Still, it should have something to have with jolly roger.

    Woe me.

    Arwen's standard that Aragorn unfurled when he approached the Battle of Pelennor?

    Hmm. I am misleading with my riddle and hint.

    I'll rephrase my hint: who does use jolly roger?

    That should bring you to the place I'm seeking for.

    Indeed, Umbar, or Corsairs of Umbar. I admit, my riddle was misleading. I'd rather plan better next time. Anyhow, it's your turn!

    The worst part of guessing correctly

    A very simple one since I'm very bad at this:

    noble sacrifice

    As no one else has answered for reason or another, I'd try.

    Could it be as simple as Frodo, the answer? The whole journey was a noble sacrifice on his behalf.

    It would be a valid answer indeed but I'm looking for another one Tip: Don't disregard the literal meaning of the words.

    Weell, Finrod Felagund as an answer then? He was literally a noble and he did sacrifice himself to save Beren in the werewolf pits of Melkor.
