"Are you not entertained?" "Are you not entertained" [In reply to] Can't Post

But to entertain you, I can guess?

Thank you DanielLB! Yes, I was entertained.... Tongue And your answers are ALL correctly wrong (no book??) that's hard to believe. I wish to thank one and all for playing... ooops, I mean ONE.

All seriousness aside, for ONE and all that give a poo here's what I came up with: Robert Foster’s comments are in “quotes”, my corrections are in (parenthesis).

1. Battle of the Hornburg. “..Theoden, Eomer, and Aragorn at their head, sallied forth from the Hornburg..”
(Eomer was NOT in this sortie; he was back in the Deep with Gimli. They were not reunited with Theoden and Aragorn until after the victory was won.) II 182, 189

2. Battle of the Pelennor Fields. “..the Lord of the Nazgul scattered the Rohirrim and slew Theoden..”
(Theoden was crushed by his horse Snowmane. The Lord of the Nazgul never laid a claw on Theoden.)

3. Bruinen. “..joined the Mitheithel at Tharbad to form the Gwathlo.”
(The Bruinen (Loudwater) and the Mitheithel (Hoarwell) conjoined over 100 miles N. of Tharbad.)

4. Cirdan. “He built Vingilot for Earendil.”
(Earendil built Vingilot with the aid of Cirdan.) S.304

5. Eored. “Eomer’s, which was perhaps typical had 104 men.”
(Eomer’s eored had 120 men. The size of an eored seemed to depend upon need.)

6. Forest Gate. “Thorin and Company were shown this gate by Beorn..”
(The Forest Gate was 2-3 day’s pony ride from Beorn’s house. He only told them about it.)

7. Gollum. “He caught up with Frodo and the Company of the Ring outside the West-gate…”
(He was (already) inside Moria when he “caught up” with the Fellowship.)

8. Gwaihir. “Lord of the Eagles of the Misty Mountains.”
(Can’t be! This has been discussed previously, but ask if you need an explanation.)

9. Half-orcs. “..(the term is not used in LotR)..”
(“We had many of these half-orcs to deal with..”) II 218

10. Holman Greenhand. “He lived at Number 3 Bagshot Row.”
(Hamfast & Sam lived at Number 3 – Holman’s address is unknown.)

11. Lord of the Nazgul. “..he killed King Theoden..”
(See Battle of the Pelennor Fields above.)

12. Mithril Mail. “A corslet and helmet of mithril made in Erebor…”
(The helmet was not mithril.) H 228

13. Side-door. “..and the door, five feet high and three feet wide…”
(..”and three may walk abreast..” must have been much more than “three feet wide”.) H 32

14. Stone of Erech. “..was perhaps six feet in diameter.”
(Had to be at least ten feet in diameter. Tall as a man yet half buried.)

15. West-gate of Moria. “The West-gate was made of ithildin..”
(It was made of stone. Only the “hidden markings” were of ithildin.)
