    Dark fire would make me think of the 'blasting fire' used by the Uruk-hai in the battle of the Hornburg, but that obviously doesn't fit the 'friendly' part of your riddle... I'm stuck!

    it is not. I'll hold off any any hints just yet, though.

    How about the balrog of Moria? IIRC the flames leaped up seemingly to greet the balrog as it leapt across the fiery fissure in the second hall.
    So balrog = dark, friendly fire = the flames 'greeting' it when it leaps?

    that's an interesting take. While friendly fire should be considered together, it does not refer to what I'm thinking of.

    OK, my balrog guess was a bit left-field but I was sneakily hoping you give us a clue

    So, "friendly fire" probably refers to someone accidentally killing their own forces - how about the Lord of the Nazgul at the Battle of Pelennor Fields? Haven't got the text to hand but if I remember he was described as trampling even his own orcs? And he's certainly dark.

    well, I was going to start dropping hints anyway! SO THERE!

    Not it. Too recent in terms of Arda history.

    event in question occurs back in the First Age. I've been on a Silmarillion kick lately...

    Dark friendly fire.

    First thing that comes to mind...Charcaroth destroying both his foes and orcs and that as he rampages from the North
    Second thing is Glaurang denying the orcs the treasures of Nargothrond, and expelling them out with fire.

    Good guesses, no to both. You're thinking the wrong side of the war.

    Must be one of the kinslayings then? Perhaps the 2nd kinslaying when Caranthir the Dark was killed?

    If not one of the Kinslayings, it'd be in the Battle of Unnumbered Tears, when Ulfang the Black's Easterlings turned on the Noldor.

    The event in question is not part of a great battle.

  14. #514
    Hmmm, then there are several cases where Turin seems to fit the bill.

    Accidentally killing Beleg when being freed from the orcs.
    Turin killing the Lord of Brethil.

    Turin is correct. He killed his friend Beleg using the black sword thinking Beleg was one of his captors. You're up, Isilmacil.

    Here's a nice easy one as I couldn't think of something more challenging: Lost my clasps

    Bilbo? He used the term quite loosely for his younger friends even if they weren't directly related.

    True. That is what I was looking for.
    Frodo and Bilbo were actually cousins. Bilbo was not his (or anyone else's) uncle.

    Yer up Stride!
