aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel

Only 8 out of 10! [In reply to] Can't Post

I found it quite hard some of them, anyway! I think the reason is that much of Tolkien's descriptions of things like mountains and forests or countryside is quite similar. His description of Caradhas could be the same as the Lonely mountain or the mountains of Mordor. But congratulations on the Guardian, and I don't often say that! in creating a quiz which stretched my brain!

Only scored 8 out of 10 Pirate but Tolkien's descriptions are a lot alike on scenery. I'll take it though.

As I have a tendency to read fast and not pay attention. But I got every single one right on the test we took at our Tolkien Reading Day. Those questions included: What is the Helacraxe? here is Eregion? And a lot of other things from TS.

I couldn't remember Rivendell being described as "The First Homely House" so clicked that, thinking perhaps they'd put "Elrond's pad" as a synonym for "Elrond's house". Smile
