    Is it worth more than the postage?
    It would be except that I am sending it "next day-surface" from Vladivostok.

    What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good on this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?
    I think bilbo started it, not gandalf

    Which tells me the postage is very low; but how much is the check?

    Low?
    I guess it depends on where you are.
    Getting a check delivered "surface" by the next day from Vladivostok could be a bit spendy.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were indicating the next surface mail to leave Vladivostok.

    In that case the value of the check is less than the postage, so I think you can keep it

    And still another try:

    Gates of Morning: a portal in the easternmost reaches of Imbar, where the Sun pops out each morning after passing through the Void.

    My first thought was "Eärendel", but I have no hope of it being correct after Boraxxe's clever assays.

    Alas, it is the wrong answer, though one of two (the other being Luthien) I most expected from my clue. If it helps at all, Earendil is six (or three) steps of the right answer, as Luthien was four (five steps) from it.

    Is it Galadriel? I seem to remember Gimli and Eomer's conversation about Galadriel. Gimli said that he chose Galadriel as the morning Eomer chose Arwen as the evening.

    Is it Galadriel? I seem to remember Gimli and Eomer's conversation about Galadriel. Gimli said that he chose Galadriel as the morning Eomer chose Arwen as the evening.
    In three days, as the King had said, Eomer of Rohan came riding to the City, and with came an eored of the fairest knights of hte Mark. He was welcomed; and when they sat all at the table in Merethrond, the Great Hall of Feasts, he beheld the beauty of the ladies that he saw and was filled with great wonder. And before he went to his rest he sent for Gimle the Dwarf, and he said to him: "Gimli Gloin's son, have you your axe ready?"

    "Nay, lord," said Gimli, "but I can speedily fetch it, if there be need."

    "You shall judge," said Eomer. "For there are certain rash words concerning the Lady of the Golden Wood that lie still between us. And now I have seen here with my own eyes."

    "Well, lord," said Gimli, "what say you now?"

    "Alas!" said Eomer. "I will not say that she is the fairest lady that lives."

    "Then I must go for my axe," said Gimli.

    "But first I will plead this excuse," said Eomer. "Had I seen her in any other company, I would have said all that you could wish. But now I will put Queen Arwen Evenstar first, and I am ready to do battle on my own part with any who deny me. Shall I call for my sword?"

    Then Gimli bowed low. "Nay, you are excused for my part, lord," he said. "You have chosen the Evening; but my love is given to the Morning. And my heart forbodes that soon it will pass away for ever."
    (LotR p 953)

    Correct!

    Hi all, long time reader, first time poster here.
    That's the passage I was thinking of, but I didn't have my book handy to put it all down.

    Try this one - Mourning.

    Welcome.

    If I were forced to hazard a guess, I would say Nienor (Mourning), last child of Hurin Thalion.

    In that case, may I propose as a riddle, "First"? (There are two answers which I will accept as correct.)

    Edited to make the clue accurate (sorry if I confused anyone).

    Glaurung the father of Dragons had no father either since he was the first dragon, or maybe the ents since they were created by Yavana and thus only had a mother.

    I believe that Morgoth developed dragons by breeding drakes (essentially very large lizards) for size, and then when one was sufficiently large, introducing an Ainu to be its soul. So while the case is ambiguos, I believe that Glaurung had a father. The father was just not a dragon.
