Tolkien Name Quest Can't Post

For those with little better to do here are a few nonsensical ill-written lines wherein are hidden in plain sight 45 Tolkien ďpeopleĒ.
How many can you find? (Some may cross-through punctuation or sentences.)
(Example: The eye is a shinning orb aglow with radiance. (Gorbag)).

1. In this crude rude narrative some favorite people are hiding.
2. Iím listing them to-and-fro. Do look forth or instead donít snag an answer.
3. A hero accepts this challenge and may begin or imbibe.
4. A grade-a-goldbrick may claim immunity and put a boycott on the game.
5. This may be disgusting folderol or incoherent but donít gripe Ė
6. reach far, odd things may happen. Reach far, a miracle may be had.
7. Or if this seems to move ad nauseam or go thoughtlessly donít be half
8. astonished if amid rile or rage some sense appears.
9. Our cabal insists on quality and will grab obscure clues.
10. Now, maneuver smartly and you may go far wending through these lines.
11. To excel end illogical thinking. During this attempt to excel an orderly
12. and bold man will own each name. Unto bold men go the spoils!
13. Stop ere grinning; go slow, and limber up.
14. Donít be a rube, render, describe, or name as many as you can.
15. Or be proper and wise, have some style Ė go last.
16. Nonetheless are you a nobody or the best? Elevate yourself!
17. Smile. Odds are you need not be so grim.
18. A sample herein lies to test yourself at typographical searching.

Yes, Leod is one. He was the father of Eorl. Miscount, there are 47 not 45 - sorry.....Blush

Don't forget the end of a line or sentence is fair game, as a name may continue from one line to the next ie 6-7.

And Beor and Beorn counts as 2 names. Thanks for playingSmileBG

Although "Anor" is Sindarin for "Sun"... Sorry no can count Unsure

And, yes, Ori is in there 2-3 times but only counts once. (as is another) Easy combo of letters I guess.

And Beor and Beorn count as 2..

Hi Na Vedui.... Nice work... [In reply to] Can't Post

But "Sting" isn't a "people"... no count.Mad

[Ent] you got me thinking about this, but as the Post Subject is "Tolkien Name Quest" this could go either way. "Ent" is a "people" but not a person. Nevertheless as there are 47 total "Ent" would make it 48....

Goodness me... I tries to think of everything, I realy does.
