    trick question how? were the lovers not "star-crossed"? Did her father approve of the young man? Did they not both die tragically? Like Sam and rosy?

    I am a bit confused.
    Eddie, can you explain how you think a 3-2-1 riddle works?

    A 3 word clue leading to (in this case) a non-Tolkien 2 word clue leading to a 1word answer from Tolkiens works

    Nice clarification Boraxxe. I had completely forgotten that he'd said 3-2-1.

    Hmm, let’s try:
    Romeo and Juliet -> William Shakespeare -> Bilbo (a famous writer in ME?)

    Second step is spot on, but not the Bilbo part. Won´t give hints just yet

    That was my 2nd thought, this time it is you beating me to the punch sir!

    Not Bard, sir. My last step is actually a very simple and shallow association. Nearly ridiculous.

    The valiant Théoden as his army entered the Battle of the Pelennor Fields:
    Arise, arise, Riders of Théoden!
    Fell deeds awake: fire and slaughter!
    spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered,
    a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!
    Ride now, ride now! Ride to Gondor!
    (JRRT in ROTK, The Ride of the Rohirrim)
    (BTW, although PJ's move change the quote slightly, I still thought it did an awesome job of capturing this moment).

    that is actually the best of the answers i would have accepted. You got the Shake-speare part pinned down. You're up

    Yes, whatever problems one might have w/ Jackson's interpretation or the good professor's works, one cannot deny that the visuals are stunning, amazing, outstanding (it beggars the English language to attempt to adequately describe the incomparable visuals of Jackson film).

    Awesome riddling and solving, btw.

    Next riddle:

    Opposite Erect Vision

    (and yes, this is a PG-rated riddle so don't take it that way!)

    probably wrong, but it made me think of the Hills of Hearing and Sight around Rauros - the Hill of Hearing would be opposite the Hill of Sight, which could be said to be an erect place where vision could occur. So, Amon Lhaw.

    Again, gotta start somewhere, so; In mirror of Galadriel, Samwise saw a vision of the party tree cut down (opposite of erect)?

    Wow, very close to the answer I'm looking for! Hmm, should I guide you further or let you figure out on your own? Let's see if someone can get it just knowing this is quite close to the answer...

    OK, guess I need to add a hint:
    - riddle: Opposite Erect Vision
    - 1st hint: Hills of Hearing and Sight around Rauros was very close
    - 2nd hint: Consider Opposite & Erect together

    The vale in Mirkwood where Bilbo climbed a tree and tried to see how much there was left of the forest? But he couldn't, 'cose it was a vale.

    EDIT: Or no. I think I'll change that to Boromir tryin' to find Bilbo after he put on the ring.

    EDIT(2): nonono. cancel out that too. The Seat of seeing on Amon Hen. Sitting is opposite to standing.

    The judges are conferring, having a heated discussion... and yes they will accept an edited answer! Sitting is the opposite of erect (standing), so the Seat of Seeing is what I was looking for.

    You're up!

    Think I'll roll the next riddle to someone. Can't come up with a good one.

    But hereby I solemnly swear on my copies of the lore (on multiple languages) to make it a sake of honor (for myself) to have riddle ready before I throw guesses. (If You, My Fellow Riddlers, Approve Of It)
