***Fellowship of the Ring Anniversary: Bilbo's Brainteaser! Can't Post

Welcome to a special Fellowship of the Ring Anniversary edition of Bilbo's Brainteasers! (Back in the early days of TORn, Altaira (and Bilbo) would pose a weekly Brainteaser puzzle.)

Below are ten places or features in Middle-earth, and which are mentioned in Fellowship of the Ring. You need to figure out what each is, from the riddle provided. For clues, three letters are already given. Try this closed-book! (But you can peek, if you really need to. Wink)

Have fun! Remember, do NOT put any answers in your subject line! I'll post the answers in a couple of days.


1. Beware when you cross; this mountain is cruel!
_ _ R _ _ H _ A _

2. In the midst of its bridge, was left a green jewel.
M _ _ H _ _ T _ _ _

3. Lillies afloat, it winds through the Old Forest.
_ _ _ _ Y _ _ N _ _ E

4. For singing and stories, or simply more rest!
_ I _ _ N _ _ L _

5. Darkness and stillness, you dare make no sound...
_ _ _ Z _ D - D _ _

6. In a dark, cold crypt, Frodo's courage was found!
_ A _ _ O _ - _ _ W_ _

7. Listen: do you hear a fair maiden sing?
_ _ M _ O _ E _

8. A throne and a sceptre, the signs of the King.
A _ _ _ M _ _ A _

9. Bright sky shines above, yet but stars will you see...
_ _ R _ _ R _ _ R _

10. Home sweet home, near a fine Party Tree!
_ A _ ... E _ D
