Well shucky darn.. [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't either Frown but I think the last name was Greenhome.

First name? Uh.. uh... Harvey? Roberto? .. Nope. I'd have to look. Angelic Nuts!

But from them I do recall came the Fairbairns that moved to the Westmarch Undertowers and carried on with the Redbook.

The Authorities... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it's mentioned in the Prologue to FotR.

Something like... The Authorities agreed that Bilbo's (pocket) question/riddle was not according the the 'Rules', but once he agreed to let Gollum have three guesses they considered it suitable. Or something to that affect.

You didn't say 'Simon says.'"

Here it is [In reply to] Can't Post


Quote
The Authorities, it is true, differ whether this last question was a mere 'question' and not a 'riddle' according to the strict rules of the Game; but all agree that, after accepting it and trying to guess the answer, Gollum was bound by his promise.

Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

fuzzy Fox. Smile

I'm getting to lazy to look up some of this stuff and end up paraphrasing. Amazing how much the gray (that's gray not grey) matter retains.

Hmm, I wonder now, what's the diff between a Grey Wizard and a Gray Wizard?.... Hmmm - English vs American?

“Daro” You’re getting tough [In reply to] Can't Post

Rumil and Orophin
I believe there was also a First Age Haldir but I don't know if he had any bro's..

Talan is “flet” in Westron

And Rem, John-dir was a distant cousin that started a lucrative tractor company (horse drawn at the time of course). Wink

Give three names for the rope 'bridge' the company used to cross the Silverlode with Haldir. Unsure
