Who Said It?

Who Said It?

Image

This game is quite easy and will test your memory. I spotted this game idea on The Council of Elrond and it seemed they were having a rollicking good time of it. You need to know this will be difficult if you are recalling a line from one of Peter Jackson's trilogy. So please, use your books and not the films.

We ask one favor of those posting their question because there are those with various background knowledge of Middle-earth, we ask you also post the level of difficulty.


:arrow: Level 1 is for beginners. This is for our members who may have read The Hobbit and/or LoTR

:arrow: Level 2 is for the well versed. This level is for those that may have read the Hobbit, LoTR and or The Silmarillion

:arrow: Level 3 is for the geeks among us. Members who have read just about any or all of Tolkien’s Middle-earth writings

I'm sure there is no need to remind you of our wonderfully crafted House Rules.

First Question to start us off.

Who said the words in my signature?

"Aiya Earendil Elenion Ancalima!"

Frodo spoke the words in Shelob's lair. :wink:

OK...who said this?

Gil-galad was an Elven-king.
Of him the harpers sadly sing:
the last whose realm was fair and free
between the Mountains and the Sea.

His sword was long, his lance was keen,
his shining helm afar was seen;
the countless stars of heaven's field
were mirrored in his silver shield.

But long ago he rode away,
and where he dwelleth none can say;
for into darkness fell his star
in Mordor where the shadows are.

It was Sam, who learned it from Bilbo.

You're correct Beren. It was Gandalf, but it was at the Last Debate outside Minas Tirith.

You're turn for a quote. :D

It sounds more like Frodo to me. That is a sentiment he repeats many times throughout the book...of course so do a few others. :wink:

A hint maybe? Like the next (or previous) line? (:-o<
