    That’s it!

    I would have said: “Who bore the three elven rings of power?”, but hey

    You’re up again!

    OK, next one: ...sorry for the delay...new content takes precedence.

    These items have alliterative nicknames applied to them by goblins.

    You have the riddle stick! Or rather, you would have it if your answer was posted in the correct format...a question.

    The young hobbits got in all kinds of trouble with Farmer Maggot when they trespassed to find them...

    I actually did not think I was right at all, so a nice surprise!

    Next one:

    A mighty warrior, possibly even stronger than an elf-lord.

    Who is Turin Turambar?

    He was also called Adanedhel (Man-Elf - a name given to him in Norgothrond) because he was so like an elf, though he was human.

    Nice guess, but not the one. Wrong age, to begin with...

    OK, recap:

    A mighty warrior, possibly even stronger than an elf (wording changed slightly - my mistake, the word "lord" is not actually used in the text)

    Hint already given: Not first age

    New hint: much smaller than an elf

    Who was Bullroarer Took? He led the defence against the Mount Gram Goblins, & supposedly knocked Golfimbul's head off & down a rabbit hole, thereby creating the game of golf!

    Not Bullroarer, but you’re getting closer in size.

    This person was mistaken for an elf due to the scale of their deeds...

    Who is Sam?
    After "sticking a pin" into Shelob.
    The goblins thought there was a great Elf Warrior prowling around.

    You got it!

    “By all the signs, Captain Shagrat, I’d say there’s a large warrior loose, Elf most likely, with an elf-sword anyway, and an axe as well maybe; and he’s loose in your bounds, too, and you’ve never spotted him. Very funny indeed!’ Gorbag spat. Sam smiled grimly at this description of himself.”

    The Lord of the Rings
    J. R. R. Tolkien
