TORn History Scavenger Hunt : Tookish's Ticklers Can't Post



And yet there lie in Denethor's hoards many records that few now can read, even of the lore-masters,
for their scripts and tongues have become dark to later men.



Tookish's Ticklers is, like Quickbeam's Out on a Limb, found in GreenBooks. It is worth copying the intro for this section:
Welcome to TheOneRing.net's Lord of the Rings & J.R.R. Tolkien humor section! This area contains a wide range of comedy for the Tolkien fan. Please be aware that some entries may be vulgar, or contain profanity or other inappropriate content for some readers. Movie and story spoilers may also be present! Parent supervision is advised. Caution: reading this page in the wee hours may disrupt sleeping family... Enjoy!

There are 6 areas in Tookish's Ticklers and I have one challenge from each area. To find all items in each section, click on the 'archives' link next to each subhead.
[ Writings Archive ] - [ Filk Song Archive ] - etc.

I'm hoping that 'hint' is enough to steer you to the proper area but if you need more hints, just ask. I love hints.

Be sure to find the Bonus question at the end of the hunt.

As per my earlier hunt, I'll post the answers and collectible medallions for those who participate in a few days. The game has no deadline, however, and you can complete any challenge at any time at which time you will claim your medallion. Discussion beyond simple answers is always welcome.

So now... let the hunt begin!



1. Where can you find Andrew Arensburger's map that gives "Walking Directions to Mordor"
(This really did tickle me and I thought it so clever it was one of the first things I saved it to my hard drive.)


2. How many Tolkien purists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
(Remember, the goal is to find these items in Tookish's Ticklers. The goal is not to write an answer. Although, I 'spect someone will chose not to care. :P )


3. List one of the mistakes Steven S said we all "hope Peter Jackson will avoid in filming Lord of the Rings".


4. What is the the Number One Reason the Other Istari Vanished?


5. What webcam is Sauron monitoring on his computer desktop and who just sent him an IM?


6. Who wrote the following filk song and to what popular tune is it sung?
He is just a poor boy, though his storyís often told
How he followed Mister Frodo out into a life of peril
And of suffering
He could have stayed
Still old Sam does what he ought to do
And never once betrayed
Hm-mm-mm, hm-mm-mm-mm

When he left his home and his Gaffer there,
He was no more than a boy
In the company of hobbits
In the danger of the Great East Road, theyíre
Runniní scared
Laying low, hiding out from big Black Riders
Creatures they donít want to see
Looking for the relative safety of Bree

My-my-my, my-my-my-my-my, my-my-my
My-my-my, my-my-my-my-my-my-my
My-my-my-my-my

Seeking only to be loyal
Sam would not be left behind
Elrond couldnít stop him
So he struck out with the Fellowship from Rivendell
I do declare
Itís a good thing he was with Frodo
They made a perfect pair
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

My-my-my, my-my-my-my-my, my-my-my
My-my-my, my-my-my-my-my-my-my
My-my-my-my-my

At the breaking of the Fellowship
When Frodo tried to leave, go alone
Samwise swam out to the boat and made him take him on
On the road Ė to the end

In the clearing stands a hobbit
And a gardener by his trade
But he stood by Mister Frodo
Through every trial that laid him down or cut him.
And he cries out through his anger and his pain,
"I wonít leave him, I wonít leave him,"
And the gardener still remains
Yes, he still remains
Hm-mm-mm

My-my-my, my-my-my-my-my, my-my-my
My-my-my, my-my-my-my-my-my-my
My-my-my-my-my


Bonus: What's your favorite tickler in Tookish's Ticklers?



Happy Hunting. :-)
