    It could be either the roads that led to Mordor or the crossroad that Sam & Frodo found, where they saw the statue of the king crowned.

    Just read an interesting article on that. It said that the lord of the eagles carried the hobbits and Gandalf, but his name was not mentioned, but I thought of that incident from "The Hobbit" too.

    Incident or not is part of the whole story, the name is Gwaihir but I bet you knew that

    Nope, the use of stretch was less literal than stretching of wings.

    1 the barrow-wight
    2 Shelob
    3 the orcs of Cirith Ungol
    Another good guess but not the character I had in mind.

    Another clue: The character I have in mind is very powerful.

    How about Melkor/Morgoth

    He served a sort of imprisonment (or outprisonment) in the void after The Battle Of Powers. That sentence lasted "three ages"

    That´s a good answer and technically also right, but I thought of something slightly more subtle/less clear. Guess again

    The thrush pecking at a snail at the Lonely Mountain mini-door at which Bilbo was to "sit on the doorstep" and think of a way to get at Smaug's horde.
    The Thrush was pecking out "knock knock".

    Aand Boraxxe's up.
    although who's there on Durins day when the tresh pecked?
    but it's the right situation and context so...

    Ok here'e the next one. This will be a two-step riddle. In other words, the clue will lead out of Tolkien related material and that result will lead back to a Tolkien related answer.

    Ent draught, a strange brew. "Strange Brew" was a single from the album "Disraeli Gears" by Cream.

    You are dancin' the 2-step!

    You picked one of the 3 possible answers (and quite quickly too).
    The other 2 strange brews were Miruvor (Elf liqueur provided by Elrond to Gandalf to assist with the journey of the nine walkers) and the orc brew that the orcs forced Merry to drink during his captivity (along with Pippin) on the way to Fangorn Forest.

    Yer up!

    Cool

    Well, yeah, which is why I referred to him as Gwaihir in my guess.

    However it is up for debate if Gwaihir was one of the eagles that saved Thorin and Company, as it is said by Gandalf in Return of the King that Gwaihir has carried him twice, while the proper counting would be three if Gwaihir was Lord of the Eagles. -Lord of the Rings Wiki-
    The hobbit only refers to the eagle who led the rescue of Thorin and co. as Lord of the Eagles

    Although wasn't it said that Gandalf had rescued an eagle from a poisoned arrow. Don't remember who was specified tough

    I almost felt guilty answering because it seemed tailored specifically to me. I love that album and wore out (quite literally) a vinyl copy of it as a teen and young adult. I of course thought of Miruvor and the orc licquor, but have always been delighted by the account of M. and P. drinking ent draught and growing taller than Bullroarer as a result.
    Have to think a bit on a new riddle. It shall be forthcoming.

    Yes and most people believe that eagle to have been Gwaihir the Windlord, though not really sure it's specified.
