    What is Shelob's Lair?

    "Drawing a deep breath they passed inside. In a few steps they were in utter and impenetrable dark. Not since the lightless passages of Moria had Frodo or Sam known such darkness, and if possible here it was deeper and denser. There, there were airs moving, and echoes, and a sense of space. Here the air was still, stagnant, heavy, and sound fell dead. They walked as it were in a black vapour wrought of veritable darkness itself that, as it was breathed, brought blindness not only to the eyes but to the mind, so that even the memory of colours and of forms and of any light faded out of thought. Night always had been, and always would be, and night was all."

    ...when in doubt...twirl...

    You got it! Probably the darkest place in Middle Earth.

    Sorry for the delay- here we go-

    Even alliance with immortals could not save him from the greed of the "stunted people".

    Not Durin- a stronger "alliance"

    Perhaps I should add that the correct question is not a dwarf.

    I seem to have lost everyone here. Should I give the answer and let someone grab the riddle stick?

    Who is Thingol? The dwarves killed him and took the Silmaril that they were meant to be making jewellery out of.

    YAY!!! I guess I just had to wait long enough


    "'How do ye of uncouth race dare to demand aught of me, Elu Thingol, Lord of Beleriand, whose life began by the waters of Cuiviénen years uncounted ere the fathers of the stunted people awoke?' And standing tall and proud among them he bade them with shameful words be gone unrequited out of Doriath.
    Then the lust of the Dwarves was kindled to rage by the words of the King; and they rose up about him, and laid hands on him, and slew him as he stood. So died in the deep places of Menegroth Elwë Singollo, King of Doriath, who alone of all the Children of Ilúvatar was joined with one of the Ainur; and he who, alone of the Forsaken Elves, had seen the light of the Trees of Valinor, with his last sight gazed upon the Silmaril."
    J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Silmarillion"

    You're up!
