34 too. [In reply to] Can't Post

That poem tripped me up.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Silverlode

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

...but I should get extra credit for correcting them that Bill Ferny, not Sam, called Aragorn "Longshanks." I'm sure Sam would have thought it disrespectful. Unless it was in the movie? Too much of the movies in theis quiz for my taste. Good thing it didn't ask the name of Aragorn's horse or I would have missed out of sheer cussedness. Pirate

We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhúr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a Mûmak. But we got him!

I missed that down at the bottom in the explanation. Ferny also called him “Stick-at-naught-Strider”.

So extra credit for you… Smile

I stopped at 20 because this quiz is a waste of time for any true middle earth fan.And the first question is stupid, BIlbo left the Shire twice, and it doesn't specify final or initial destination.

35, but I question #26. [In reply to] Can't Post

About a half dozen of the questions concern Jackson's films--which I don't know well--rather than Tolkien's book, usually explicitly, but I needed a hint to answer #26 correctly. It asked from whom Gandalf learned of Sauron's plans to attack Minas Tirith.

The right answer, says the quiz, is Pippin, who had "a glimpse of the enemy's plan. Sauron moves to strike the city of Minas Tirith".

Is that from the movies? It's not in the book.

for if it prosper none dare call it treason.

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

... in the movie Pippin looks into one of the seeing stones and sees a withered, white tree, in a courtyard in flames. From the vision, Gandalf discerns Sauron intended to attack Minis Tirith, even to the Citadel.

#1 Being multiple choice there can be no doubt as to which leaving is being referred to. And the destination is obvious for any Middle-earth fan such as you or I.

He mentions Macbeth IV, i in the Letters, IIRC. "Macbeth shall never vanquished be, until Great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill Shall come against him." Unsure

And it didn't really affect the answer, unlike no. 26 which in the book simply isn't true.

Yes, none of the answers made ‘book’ sense to me either. So I had to switch to a movie guess which logic told me it was Pippin. The question should have indicated “movie”… Crazy

I got 34 [In reply to] Can't Post

I deliberately got one movie question wrong. Tolkien never liked people getting too smart did he? Otherwise I might wear a coat of many colours and call myself Saruman! Yes, though I must admit this was a bit too movie over book for my tastes! And possibly a bit easy for the movie/internet generation. Although I have seen quizes set in forums such as these ones in the internet which where really tricky and I didn't know all the answers.

I'm sure it's in the movies [In reply to] Can't Post

In the book Gandalf just assumes that Sauron will attack Minas Tirith because it is what anyone who wants to conquer Gondor would do and he knows that is what Sauron has been planning for a while. Although I think that Denethor has this confirmed to him be what he sees in the Palantir by Sauron,

When Sam, Merry, and Pippin burst into the room at The Prancing Pony Sam brandishes (I believe) a candlestick and yells "Let him go! Or I'll have you, Longshanks!"

So, it's a moment when Sam is concerned for Frodo's safety and before Strider has properly introduced himself (not that he ever does in the film, now I come to think of it).
