    At a cat. At a cat. Just to scare them off. They torment my dogs to no end.


    Pining could also mean to grieve or fail in health so my next guess is Bill the Pony.

    You know what cats that roam around outdoors are called here in New Mexico? Coyote snacks.

    Thats the ticket!

    From TFOTR:

    "The stay in Rivendell had worked a great wonder of change on him: he was glossy and seemed to have the vigour of youth. It was Sam who had insisted on choosing him, declaring that Bill (as he called him) would pine, if he did not come."

    In the next paragraph Bill is referred to as "the beast of burden".

    You're up bambu!

    Perhaps a clue? I can think of Earnur as a possible candidate, but...

    Too early for a clue my friend - it's only been posted a few hours! And your guess of Earnur seems like a good one to me. Just in case that's not correct, I'll throw Theoden out there as my guess.

    Figures the riddles I think are going to be easy ain't...

    Both good guesses, but both are not the one I'm lookin for. Agree with Wilros that it's a little early yet for a hint. Maybe after a few more guesses.

    Puts me in mind of the restoration of Theoden King, the LORD of Rohan Who's LOST in a prison of the mind (spirit) of Saruman's design through hi agent Grima and LIBERATED by Gandalf Stormcrow.

    Isildur who lost the Ring & his life.

    Isildur was amongst the Last Alliance that liberated the people of ME from Sauron, for some time at least. Also liberating may mean stealing, and Isildur liberated the One Ring from Sauron.

    Eärnur is an obvious candidate because he literally liberated Arnor from the clutches of Angmar, and then he was "Lost" later *cough* Mordirith. Another one, I guess, would be Boromir: He fought countless battles in Gondor and 'liberated' Osgiliath, but he too was lost. The problem is that there are hundreds of characters like this: I could go so far back as to mention Denethor, son of Lenwë, who was killed in his attempt to aid Thingol. Back in the first battle of Beleriand.

    Okay time for a clue: the Lord in question did liberate a place, but it was only for a short time. And it was more recent than Eärnur or Isildur, and not Boromir.

    Aragorn himself, maybe. He liberated Umbar from the hands of the Haradrim (for a while as you say) under the guise of Thorongil... and he went away afterwards and wasn't seen again in Gondor for a while. Does that count as lost?

    If 'lost' refers to dead, then I guess any number of Lords who died at the Pelennor could count. Grimbold springs to mind - He and Elfhelm liberated the Fords of Isen for a while (until the second battle). Might it be him?

    How about Thorin briefly becoming King under the Mountain again?

    Oh you are very close to the mark on this one...

    And lost does mean dead.

    *slump* Well then. We shall see. How is he 'close' though? Close with Thorin, or close with becoming king?

    Close with this example especially with Thorin. One of the Company in fact...

    Unlucky ReallyFat, have a go with this next one (following the alliteration theme we've had going): marvellous menial menagerie

    On the off chance that Boraxxe didn't get it correct, I will offer the alternative guess: the cats of Queen Berúthiel.

    Yep it's beorns animals, thought that was a bit too easy but once I'd thought of it I couldn't get it out of my head! You're up Boraxxe.

    @Wilros - I guess it could have been the cats, they were definitely a marvellous menagerie, but it was the menial bit that clinches it for Beorn's food-serving animals.
