Tolkien Trivia

This thread is designed for our members to have an on going trivia game. It’s very simple someone starts with one trivia question. The person to successfully answer the question contributes another trivia for the membership. 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

This is a wonderful way to sharpen your Tolkien knowledge and have fun at the same time. We encourage all Tolkien lovers from beginners to those versed in his work to participate.

Name the Heirlooms of the Heirs of Isidur and Elendil given to Aragorn when Elrond revealed to his foster son what his true identity is?

Hi, Tigger! Welcome and thanks for the good question!
Sing and be glad, all ye children of the West,
for your King shall come again,
and he shall dwell among you
all the days of your life.

Ooooo, that's tricky. Are you looking for the Úmanyar? Elves that never saw the Light of the Trees including the Sindar and the Nandor who set out on the journey, but not the Avari, 'The Unwilling', who refused the journey altogether.

If I'm right I'll let whoever answers Tigger's question (hello Tigger :wave: ) set the next question for us :D .
Now let the song begin! Let us sing together

Iolanthe, you mentioned the Úmanyar and that is the group I was thinking of. Good job my friend. :D

Welcome Tigger. That is an excellent level 1 question. Once someone correctly answers it we will let them give the next question.

Let us keep only one game going at a time shall we? It will be to confusing to have three trivia questions unanswered at a time on one thread. :dizzy:

Elrond presented Aragorn with the "Ring of Barahir' and the "Shards of Narsil"..."The Septre of Annuminas" he withheld for Aragorn had yet to earn it....
