Okay, some answers and some guesses ... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What does Bilbo take from his fireplace mantle before leaving Bag End?
His pipe -- can't leave home without it.

2. Who is the first member of the Fellowship to kill one of the Uruk-hai?

Aragorn, I think -- since he wades in first (that we see)

3. What precious stones are used as serpent eyes on the Ring of Barahir?

They're supposed to be green, so I'll say emeralds. I think Grima supplies the discription to Saruman but I'm not sure if he says *what* they are.

4. What weapon does the Orc carry that chases Merry and Pippin into Fangorn?

Ooh, that deadly looking curved simitar-like sword.

5. What character first appears on-screen like "someone who has never gotten out of his bathrobe", according to Ngila Dickinson?

That would have to be Theoden -- good description.

6. How many miles is the Brandywine Bridge from the Buckleberry Ferry?
"20 mile" as Merry says. Does he have something against plurals?


Bonus Round:

7. What actor plays the role of Hama?
That's John Leigh. Why do I know that? No idea.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

Of rings, bathrobes and door-wardens... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. What does Bilbo take from his fireplace mantle before leaving Bag End?

He takes a pipe and puts it into his pack.

2. Who is the first member of the Fellowship to kill one of the Uruk-hai?

I assume it's Aragorn, since he takes them on single-handedly at the start.

3. What precious stones are used as serpent eyes on the Ring of Barahir?

Grima: "...it bore a strange device. Two serpents...with emerald eyes..."

4. What weapon does the Orc carry that chases Merry and Pippin into Fangorn?

Some kind of curved, heavy orc-scimitar, I think.

5. What character first appears on-screen like "someone who has never gotten out of his bathrobe", according to Ngila Dickinson?

Never heard this before! I'll guess Bilbo, since his red waistcoat always reminds me of those old-fashioned dressing-gowns, the kind Sherlock Holmes likes to wear! - No, on second thoughts, I'll say Theoden, since he essentially is in his bathrobe when we meet him.

6. How many miles is the Brandywine Bridge from the Buckleberry Ferry?

Frodo: "How far to the nearest crossing?" - Merry: "Brandywine Bridge, twenty miles!"

Bonus Round:

7. What actor plays the role of Hama?

Don't know. Don't even know what country he's from. I'll be interested to find out.


...and the sails were drawn up, and the wind blew,
and slowly the ship slipped away down the long grey firth;
and the light of the glass of Galadriel that Frodo bore
glimmered and was lost.

Somethings tells me .... [In reply to] Can't Post

... this isn't going to be a perfect score Unsure Oh, well.

1. A brown wig. Imagine arriving at Rivendell with a gray head, that'll never impress Arwen.
2. Shakespeare.
3. Moonstones. Pretty amazing huh?
4. A copy of the collected works of Shakespeare. If the weight doesn't kill the opponent, the contents will. (Or at least it is lethal when read out aloud in Orc.)
5. Pippin
6. None at all, for it's actually the same place. Unless one decides to make one's way around the lake of course, in which case it'll take a while to return to where one started.
7. I only know it should've been Tom Cruise

more answers [In reply to] Can't Post

1. His pipe
2. Ah, that depends, as the action is intercut between Aragorn and Boromir. I'd say Aragorn.
3. Sapphire. Is it ever mentioned in the movie
4. A scimitar
5. No idea. King Theoden?
6. 7 miles

Bonus round: Pass. Can't answer without looking on the net, which would be cheating!

Questions for the Week of March 26:

1. What does Bilbo take from his fireplace mantle before leaving Bag End? Hmmm. His pipe, perhaps?

2. Who is the first member of the Fellowship to kill one of the Uruk-hai? Now how the heck am I supposed to remember that? I'll guess Aragorn because I think we see him kill one first at Amon Hen, but I just don't know for sure. (Technically it may have been Boromir with Merry and Pippin, but they didn't show it that way.)

3. What precious stones are used as serpent eyes on the Ring of Barahir? Emeralds? Saphires? Rubies? Yes, precioussss. Rubieses. That'sss my final answer.

4. What weapon does the Orc carry that chases Merry and Pippin into Fangorn? It was some kind of a knife or short sword. I don't know if it had a technical name...maybe scimitar?

5. What character first appears on-screen like "someone who has never gotten out of his bathrobe", according to Ngila Dickinson? I don't know. Really. I have no clue. My guesses would be Frodo or Gandalf, both of whom seem a little rumpled looking. I suppose I have to pick someone. Hmmm. I'll go with Gandy. Final answer. (Now watch, it's probably Aragorn!)

6. How many miles is the Brandywine Bridge from the Buckleberry Ferry? 20 miles. Finally....one I know for sure!

Bonus Round:

7. What actor plays the role of Hama? Oh, please. You may as well have asked me who plays the fifteenth orc to get killed in the Battle for Helm's Deep. I would have just as much chance of getting it right!

Thank you weaver and elvenhobbit. These are always fun!

Aragorn threw back his cloak. The elven-sheath glittered as he grasped it, and the bright blade of Andúril shone like a sudden flame as he swept it out. 'Elendil!' he cried. 'I am Aragorn son of Arathorn, and am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dúnadan, the heir of Isildur Elendil's son of Gondor. Here is the Sword that was Broken and is forged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!' TTT, Book III, Chapter 2
And Éomer answered: 'Since the day when you rose before me out of the green grass of the downs I have loved you, and that love shall not fail.' RotK, Book VI, Chapter 5
