    Another fine guess, Boraxxe. How about the red arrow of Gondor calling Rohan to honor the ancient alliance and rush to Minas Tirith's aid "in extremis." A hurried alliance indeed.

    None so far have got very close so I'll go ahead and drop a hint...

    You have probably heard the saying about my enemy's enemy...

    Do not meddle in the affairs of Burglars, for they are subtle and quick to shank you.

    In that case is it perhaps the Alliance between the elves, men and dwarves in the Battle of the Five Armies?

    Next: Crystal hair

    Hmm, I believe that Eärwen was known for having star-like silver hair, and thus her daughter Galadriel had a mixture of silver/golden hair, thought to be a form of light of the 2 trees.

    So Eärwen?

    my guess is the strands of hair that Galadriel gave to Gimli, which he was to set in imperishable crystal.

    Amon Rudh, refuge for Turin and his band of outlaws and former home of the Petty Dwarves.

    I lol'ed at your first response. Very clever.

    On the second, afraid not!

    Valinor maybe? That's a refuge for elves and its remote. My second guess is Rivendell.

    I can honestly say that Valinor never crossed my mind as a possible answer, good one. I'll remember that in the future, but it's not the one I'm looking for. Nor is Rivendell - far too long lasting. I'll start narrowing it down further in the next day or so. Keep up the guesses!

    The temporary refuge of Thorin and his kindwarves in the blue mountains after Smaugs arrival to Erebor.

    EDIT: Rather Thráins halls. Originally

    Lothlorien where the fellowship stayed for a while? Or maybe the Gray Havens.

  22. #2122
    no to both. I will say you're in the correct Age of Middle Earth, but neither location is the event or locale that I'm looking for.

    Frodo's new house at Crickhollow? Described as a refuge from the bustle of Brandy Hall, not really remote though?

    Forochel, where King Arvedui hid from the Witch-King?

    afraid not. you're thinking too recently. The event that spawned this riddle did occur in the Third Age, but further into the past.
