    Could it be Dain, who replaced Thorin as king under the mountain?

    You are all thinking along the right lines, however, the character I’m looking for is pre-LOTR and the Hobbit.

    Sauron that replaced Morgoth as "the big badass one"? ;P

    I'll guess something a little different, undoubtedly incorrect but here it is all the same: Durin the Deathless. Through all it's tribulations, the line of Durin has never failed, and often times the new heir is so like unto his forefather that he has taken the name "Durin" for his own.

    A little stretched perhaps, but there's my guess.

    Some very interesting guesses (I didn’t see Durin coming!), but still not the answer I’m looking for. I’ll summarize and provide an extra hint.

    Trivia question: Steady Replacement
    1st Hint: It’s a character
    2nd Hint: The character precedes the events detailed in The Hobbit and LOTR
    3rd Hint: Part of the answer is in the meaning of this character’s name

    I will be hosting a family function over the weekend, so if I don't get a chance to respond to your guesses I will do so on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!

    oh! Mardil Voronwe. Gondor's first ruling steward. this has to be it! =P. I thought perhaps Tulkas because of the tulca (strong,steadfast) root, but I think Mardil Voronwe makes more sense, since Tulkas wasnt really a replacement, but an addtion

    Excellent work husaragi, a quick answer so you didn’t have to wait for my slow reply over the weekend! Yes, the answer is Mardil Voronwë. As the first ruling steward he was a replacement for the King of Gondor (Eärnur, who has an interesting destiny in the Vol1 Epics in LOTRO), and it is said that Mardil ruled Gondor with a steady hand. His epithet, Voronwë, means "the Steadfast" in Quenya.

    Could it be Glamdring, Gandalf's sword?

    Glamdring translates as Foe-Hammer, so it is a sword that is also a hammer - hence 'Thud Cut'?

    A long shot
    oh no! thats a very good guess! but, not what I was looking for =) i think even a small hint will give it away, so im not giving any just yet =)
    [edit] where did your post go?!

    Thank you I had a feeling it wasn't right, but never mind! I'll keep thinking about it.


    (Apologies, I didn't mean to delete my first post entirely; I was trying to edit it to figure out how to post under my character instead of account name!)

    Hmphh... This is quite a difficult riddle indeed. I'm going to make a wild guess: Grond, Hammer of the Underworld. It was in, or at least relatively near Gondolin, wielded by Morgoth. A hammer makes a thud, but I have no idea how the "cut" would fit in (except Fingolfin the elf lord cut Morgoth's leg, but it isn't relevant)... So, most likely this is wrong. :/

    oh man...another really good guess. very interesting logic with the fight between morgoth and fingolfin! but once again, off by a bit.

    ok perhaps a more fitting riddle that still means relatively the same thing would have been Thud Sharply. you guys are close. it is indeed a weapon.

    Hmm...

    I think I have it.

    Dramborleg, the great axe of Tuor (I think it translates as "Thudder-Sharp").

    correct! nice job =)

    When Tuor dwelt in Gondolin, he carried with him a great axe rather than a sword. Its name was Dramborleg which is translated as 'Thudder-Sharp' because it could strike a thudding blow like a club, but with a sharp cutting edge. The Axe survived the Fall of Gondolin, and was carried across the Sea to Númenor, where it became a royal heirloom. Its ultimate fate is not known with certainty, but it appears to have been lost in the Downfall.

    In the original post for this thread I stated:

    "Lets try to keep the subject material restricted to the major published works that are related to the world of Arda:

    The Silmarillion
    The Children Of Hurin
    The Hobbit
    The Lord Of The Rings
    The Adventures Of Tom Bombadil"

    Now, I know we haven't always followed that stipulation and I never meant for it to be a hard-and-fast rule.
    But I hope that if you know that you are posting a riddle that falls outside those guidelines you will at least hint at it.

    Now that I have set this up, I will explain that the next riddle I am proposing has it's origin in one of those 5 canonical works, but the details come from a different (though still Tolkien) work.
    So, here ya go:

    Ten spies
    "Just like Mary Shelly, Just like Frankenstein, Break your chains, And count your change, And try to walk the line"
