Time for a break! The Third HOLTS Trip to Middle-earth has just started! "Who am I?" is suspended during the trip, that is, the next two weeks. After that, it'll be reopened! Now, hurry up, we have already departed!

"Who am I?" is re-opened!

And here is the next riddle:

I was the son of Fëanor's fifth son.
As my father was forced away from Nargothrond, I stayed.
Killed I was by the Dark Lord,
but not before I had forged some of the most amazing things ever seen.

Who am I?

Are you Celebrimbor?

I was the son of Fëanor's fifth son.
The son of Curufin and grandson of Fëanor

As my father was forced away from Nargothrond, I stayed.
He survived his father, so his father was forced to leave this world

Killed I was by the Dark Lord
He was killed in II 1697 during an attack by Sauron's forces

but not before I had forged some of the most amazing things ever seen.
He played a great part in the making of the Rings of Power.

I am Laughter that died
Followed by tears
They all died young
Leaving no heirs
A tragic end to their house

Are you Lalaith?


I am Laughter that died
Her name ment laughter. She was loved by all around, especially her older brother Túrin. Sadly she became ill and died as a child

Followed by tears
Her parents Morwen and Húrin, had another girl after her death. They named her Nienor, which means lament. When she lost her memory, after meeting the dragon Glaurung, she was called Níniel, which means tear maiden, by Túrin, who found her and married her, not knowing who she really was, as they had never met.

They all died young
Nienor Níniel, jumped over a cliff and comitted suicide, when she discovered that her husband was infact her long lost older brother.

Leaving no heirs
Nienor, was pregnant when she died, but since Túrin killed himself just after her and Lalaith was already dead, there was no heirs.

A tragic end to their house
Which was deffinately a tragic end.

I am the Maiden from the White Cave,
I lived by the waterfall and river,
which carries my name.
Though he loved me and I loved him,
he followed my wish and we did not marry.
What happened to us, you may never know,
only the water can re-unite us now.

Who am I?

next one then:

I am the sea-lover
whose sons must chose
their path themselves

I was born in Spring
Fair of face and wise
My mother's child indeed

I was seven years of age
When destruction came
and we were forced to flee

I went to seek aid
I saw no hope no more
So I dared to go where I shouldn't

My plea was heard
the exiled saved
I sail yet to this day

Who am I?

QUOTE
My plea was heard

I descent from kings,
and kings would descent from me.

I married young,
and lost him just four years later.

I was called fair,
and given a name of stars.

I gave hope,
but kept none for myself.

There are no rules for how many times in a row you are allowed to guess are there?
Or how many times a day?

Well, anyway; next one...

I am the golden king
I won a great victory,
but was deceived
to chance a foolish deed.

For my folly
my people was lost
though those faithful ones
were saved from the wrath.

Who am I?

Are you Ar-Pharazon?

QUOTE

He was called the golden king. He won a victory over Sauron and brought him to Númenor as a prisoner. Sauron deceived him, and persuaded him to challenge the Valar, and try to conquer Aman. He was killed in the attempt.

QUOTE
For my folly
my people was lost
though those faithful ones
were saved from the wrath.[/quote]
Because of the this, the Valar destroted Númenor, and only the few faithful ones, were saved and sailed to Middle-earth.

OK, my last one today, then I better go wink.gif

I am the Lady of the Stars,
married to the king of this world.
I gave light to the night,
so the children would not fear.
I have been given many names,
and their beatiful voices still praise me in song.
