    Great work there. It looks to me like the correct answer. I hope Vilnas hasn't left on vacation yet.

    About Quenya; a bit of searching resulted in this: Fanuikarr. I just stuck cloudy (fanui) and head (karr) together. But I am not a Quenya scholar, just a searcher...grin.

    Looks like Vilnas might have left, but I reckon Wilros got it. I vote the turn is his!

    I second that motion.
    Interesting thing Vilnas did there; found a way to turn a two-word clue into a three-word clue.

    Excellent work. You have the riddle stick.

    Grr. Was logged in as Urias again - my old account name from way back in Beta. The forums default to that as my display name and I sometimes forget to change it before posting.

    Anyhoo, Wilros does indeed have the riddle stick.

    Could the answer be as simple as the name of a ship? Eärendil's ship Vingilot would be my first guess.

    On the right track bambu3, but I will hold out for what I believe is a superior answer.

    Could it be ship that caried Frodo to the undieing lands?

    Or possibly the black ship(s) that Aragaorn, Gimli, Legolas and the rangers sailed into the Battle of Pelennor Fields?

  12. #712
    No, and no (unless you can convince me otherwise). The answer I have in mind is quite closely linked to the last of the 3 words, and it will become quite apparent that this answer is well suited.

    What pops to my mind is the Guild of Venturers under Tar-Aldarion and the ship that was their base of operations. Being as this is in the Unfinished Tales, I'm not sure it is an "in bounds" answer, and I don't know what to make of the Bore, but there it is. STRIKE ME DOWN

    Hmm, it appears that I am the one who requires to be struck, not yourself Mulkfather. I was indeed looking for Eämbar - the headquarters of the Guild of Venturers. I had thought I remembered reading about it in the Sil, but after your comment double-checked and I was not able to find any mention of it there. So I borrowed from some "out of bounds" text to come up with this one then.

    A thousand apologies!! The riddle stick may pass to you Mulkfather. Here, take it quickly before I am struck down!

    I honestly don't recall if that is inbounds lore or not. So I won't be dispensing lightning.

    Shard of Doom

    On the first post of the thread the rules were set to the same bounds as the other '- word' threads meaning these:

    The Silmarillion
    The Children Of Hurin
    The Hobbit
    The Lord Of The Rings
    The Adventures Of Tom Bombadil


    were the 'in bounds' texts.

    Seeing as how no one questioned this, I think we can call this one a Gollum and I ain't got no problem with Mulk taking the turn.

    The splinter from the Morgul blade stuck in Frodo's wound? Probably too easy...

    tis not. There is one answer I will hold out for, and it will probably be obvious why when the right answer is guessed.

    How about the shards of Narsil? or the knife Angrist, or Gurthang?

    Just a point of order here:

    Try to remember to only submit one answer at a time.
    Yeah, I know, we all pull a "gollum" occasionally (String or nothing!).
    Just try to remember each post should only include one riddle answer attempt.

    And hey c_, I'm not pickin' on you. I just try to insert a bit of "riddle etiquette" now and then and it happened to be on your turn.

    Have fun!

    Right on the first try. The Shard of Narsil was what cut the ring from Sauron's hand on the slope of Mount Doom, which sealed Sauron's doom temporarily anyway. Your turn!

    Translates from the Elvish as red-jewelled, the name of the rowan tree that was the friend of Bregalad the Ent.

    He he, sometimes worth trying an easy-ish one just to see people going for the more complicated answers

    Anyway, here goes, this is a bit of an attempt at a 3-2-1 question:

    nurses dwarven rings
