    I feel like maybe I'm a little too enthusiastic about this whole LotR party thing... no, not possible to be over-excited about LotR. Anyway, here are my trivia answers! http://poetreeandbooks.blogspot.com/2013/12/a-trivia-game-to-rule-them-all.html

    Ha! I went through this whole list in about five minutes, mentally answering them all, and then I read it out loud to my family for them to answer before I remembered that I should probably leave the answers in a comment. (Let's blame the previous post about Faramir, shall we? I was too moved over that to do much else afterward, especially considering I didn't leave a comment on that post, either; oh, well, maybe one day I'll rectify myself.)

    Ahem!

    Garulf "Papa says Eothain must not ride Garulf. He is too big for him!" (Sorry, I can't help the quotes. They're coming too quickly for me to hold back.)

    You're amazing. What a terrific list of questions. Gave my Tolkien trivia a workout!


    Q: Who first identifies correctly the flock of Crebain that flies over the Fellowship?
    A: That would be Legolas, always such a smart elf.

    Q: What battle gear does Eowyn try to block the Witch-King's blow with?
    A: Her shield, which ends up being a major mistake, poor thing.

    Q: What four-legged creature does Gandalf say has been his friend through many dangers?
    A: Shadowfax! How I love that horse!

    Q: Who did Elrond lead to the Mount Doom abyss after Sauron's long-ago defeat?
    A: Oh, poor Elrond, that is Isildur. I should think trusting men would be really had after that moment.

    Q: What two-word phrase does Grima say is an "ill guest" as the broken Fellowship enters the Golden Hall?
    A: Ah, yes, “Ill news” is what he says at the beginning of that sentence.

    Q: What is the name of the horse that Eothain and Freda escape on?
    A: I think it’s Garulf, or something like that.

    Q: Who throws the palantir from the Tower of Orthanc?
    A: Ok, if we’re talking the books, then it’s Grima. If we’re talking the movie, then it falls out of Saruman’s hand/sleeve/whatever after he’s been stabbed by Grima and fallen off Orthanc first.


    Q: What realm is home to the Shards of Narsil in the Third Age?
    A: Well, I know that they come to Imladris (Rivendell) in the Third Age, so I guess the realm of Elrond Halfelven.

    Q: What's the name of the actress who plays Arwen?
    A: Liv Tyler plays Arwen.

    Q: What two people does Frodo willingly offer the Ring to because he thinks them wise?
    A: Gandalf is the first and Galadriel is the second.

    Q: What broken object washed up on a riverbank confirms Boromir's death to his brother?
    A: It was Boromir’s horn, the Horn of Gondor. So sadddddd!

    Q: How many Fellowship members are killed by the Uruk-hai?
    A: Just the one, poor, poor Boromir.

    Q: Where in Moria does the Fellowship make their stand when first attacked by Orcs: East Gate, Dwarrowdelf, or Balin's tomb?
    A: Ah, yes, that would be Balin’s Tomb. The next time I watch that scene, I’m going to cry so hard because now I know Balin!

    Q: What's the name of the makeup artist who applied Sean Astin's prosthetic feet each day?
    A: Seriously? I have absolutely no idea and that actually pains me. I’ll have to look it up now.

    Q: What direction are Eomer's Men riding in when they meet part of the Fellowship in Rohan?
    A: Ooh, ooh, I know this one and I’m usually so bad about directions! They were riding SOUTH!

    Q: What legendary king said acquiring the One Ring had caused him great pain?
    A: That’s Isildur. Maybe he should have thought twice about keeping it and saved Middle Earth a lot of heartache!


    Q: What is Aragorn's advice to Gimli about his weapon as they walk through Fangorn Forest?
    A: He tells him to lower his weapon, which only makes good sense.

    Q: Who leads the Elves that come to the aid of the Rohirrim at the Battle of Helm's Deep?
    A: *sniffle* HALDIR! WHY!?

    Q: What precious stones are used as serpent eyes on the Ring of Barahir?
    A: Ooh, good question. Let’s see. I’m pretty sure they’re green stones, so probably emeralds.

    Q: What is the name of the forest that the Ents still dwell in?
    A: That would be Fangorn Forest.

    Q: Which member of the Fellowship wears armor for the first time at Helm's Deep?
    A: That’s Gimli. It’s a little tight across the chest!

    Q: What Fellowship tracker kneels when he meets Gandalf the White for the first time?
    A: Legolas, and he does it almost immediately. I love that about him!

    Q: Who goes to Rivendell to find the significance behind a recurring dream about Isildur's doom?
    A: That’s Boromir unless I’m very much mistaken.

    Q: In which movie of the trilogy is the city of Minas Tirith first seen?
    A: Amazingly, its first scene is in The Fellowship of the Ring.

    Q: Who is the only member of the Fellowship to carry a shield?
