    What is Simbelmyne?

    Theoden:
    Simbelmÿne. Ever has it grown on the tombs of my forebears. Now it shall cover the grave of my son. Alas, that these evil days should be mine. The young perish and the old linger. That I should live to see that last days of my house.
    Gandalf:
    Théodred's death was not of your making.
    Theoden:
    No parent should have to bury their child.
    Gandalf:
    He was strong in life. His spirit will find the way to the halls of your fathers.

    I won't ask you to phrase it as a question, as you did that in your first guess.


    'Look!' said Gandalf. 'How fair are the bright eyes in the grass! Evermind they are called, simbelmynë in this land of Men, for they blossom in all the seasons of the year, and grow where dead men rest. Behold! we are come to the great barrows where the sires of Théoden sleep.'

    (The Two Towers, LoTR Book 3, Ch 6, The King of the Golden Hall)

    Over to you, kittykat!

    Hey Kitt,
    Paint me confused.
    Are you saying that Pontin has it right and it is now his turn?
    Or,
    That you are waiting for someone else to come up with the other answer that fits the clue?

    Did not mean to confuse anyone, & I just now got time to get online. I actually had someone else in mind, but seems i asked something ambigous & confusing, so I will accept Pontin's answer. I was thinking of Lungorthin. I will try to choose more wisely next time! Thank you all for your patience.

    "Lungorthin was a Balrog mentioned in earlier versions of The Silmarillion. Like Gothmog, he bore the title of "Lord of Balrogs". He was the captain of security in Angband and, like his superior officer, Gothmog, was fiercely loyal to his lord, Morgoth."

    Thank ye kindly!

    Here's (I think) an easy one:

    A place where supper/dinner involves ovine, equine and canine species.

    What is Beorn’s hall?

    “Inside the hall it was now quite dark. Beorn clapped his hands, and in trotted four beautiful white ponies and several large long-bodied grey dogs. Beorn said something to them in a queer language like animal noises turned into talk. They went out again and soon came back carrying torches in their mouths, which they lit at the fire and stuck in low brackets on the pillars of the hall about the central hearth. The dogs could stand on their hind-legs when they wished, and carry things with their fore-feet. Quickly they got out boards and trestles from the side walls and set them up near the fire.
    Then baa—baa—baa! was heard, and in came some snow-white sheep led by a large coal-black ram. One bore a white cloth embroidered at the edges with figures of animals; others bore on their broad backs trays with bowls and platters and knives and wooden spoons, which the dogs took and quickly laid on the trestle-tables.”

    Excerpt From
    The Hobbit
    J. R. R. Tolkien
    “...and he lived happily ever after, to the end of his days”

    What is the Hornburg?

    The Titanic was touted as unsinkable. The Hornburg was touted as impregnable.

    I was thinking Helm’s Deep, but the Hornburg is more specific! Your turn!

    Would it be the battering ram Grond, the “Hammer of the Underwoord?” That’s the single fattest offensive device I can think of in Middle Earth...

    Grin...
    That's the right answer. And it's sort of in the form of a question.
    But it's the wrong reason.
    From Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fat_Man



    "Fat Man" was the codename for the nuclear bomb that was detonated over the Japanese city of Nagasaki


    You have the Jeopardy! stick!

    Argh! What is Grond? ... I should have known better than that. Was in three word trivia mode!

    OK next one:
