TORn History Scavenger Hunt : Tehanu's Notes 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.

The answers to the TORn History Scavenger Hunt all lie within the domain of TheOneRing.net. My goal is that all who seek to be one of the 'few that now can read" find the answers. Using any method at your disposal is good (remember: Google is your friend). I will give you some resources to get you started and a few hints along the way.

Every hunt will focus on one area of TORn and if you find the answers you seek, you will be awarded a special, collectible (digital) medallion - one for each area.

So, get out your torches. Bring along those goblets of drink. And dig through the scrolls of TORn. .

This week, we're leaving GreenBooks and wandering into Features to visit Tehanu's Notes. Interestingly, none of these 'notes' are dated. I suppose each was announced on the Home Page so a search of the archives for news articles might reveal the dates. That can come later. For now, let's just see what she has to say.

1. In her Introductory Note, Tehanu says that one reason to start her page is "sometimes there there just isn’t a lot of news about the LOTR film project and we’ve got to find something else to occupy our minds besides __________ and __________."
bonus: Can you illuminate us a little on each of items?

2. While discussing the Silmarillion, how does Tehanu address this big question: "How does The Lord of the Rings lend reality to the real world?

Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English:
rarefied: a rarefied place, organization, or type of activity is only available to or understood by a small group of people - used to show disapproval:
the rarefied atmosphere of academia

rarefied air: is the air in high places, which has less oxygen than usual

3a. What high place does Tehanu describe as having Rarefied Air?

3b. What two things did she realize after visiting alt.fan.tolkien?

4a. After the release of ROTK, Tehanu asked, Where to From Here? and observed that "TORN was about more than just spy reports on the movies". What did she say it was?

4b. Tehanu wrapped up this note by asking again, "What to look forward to now that the movies are as good as done?" What answer does she give?

5a. Name one of the Tehanu's Notes no longer available online because it was published in TheOneRing.net's book, "The People's Guide to J.R.R. Tolkien."

5b. Who is the editor of
"The People's Guide to J.R.R. Tolkien."?

Happy Hunting!
