    That's not easy. I had to look it up. I could never read the Silmarillion for long. It's very boring.

    I was able to get the answer by exclusion. I found the Silmarillion hard to read, too, or at least many parts of it. I am not even sure I have read the whole thing, even though I am a big Tolkien fan.

    b) should be "Laurelindórenan", by the way.

    With the exception of ainulindale which is an unbelievable mythical masterpiece.

    exclusion waorked for me - never read the silmarillion - just th lord of the rings and the hobbit. point though - mirkwood the wood where sauron once resided is no place of lords and lindon just sounds really wrong. b) is the only logical conclusion.

    No. Laurelindórenan is Lothlórien, which was Celeborn's and Galadriel's realm.

    Absolutely! I love the idea that the world was created by singing.

    Here's an easier one. Where are the Rings of Power at the beginning of LoTR? The Nine, the Seven, the Three and the One...

    More specifics please. No Dwarves had them.

    The beginning of LoTR is the time period in the fictional land of Middle-Earth in which the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring is set.

    Well yes. The movie officially starts after bilbo has found the ring, but the story is told back as far as sauron forging it and having it cut off his hand.

    Who cares about the movie?

    The movie had a green cloud of ghosts swarming battle elephants.

    But as far as I know:

    The 9 were still on the hands of the Nazgul

    The Seven were all in the possesion of Sauron

    The three belonged to Gandalf, Galadriel, and Elrond.

    I don't remember the elven names off the top of my head. Except for Gandalf's, which was called Narya. (The ring of fire?)

    The army of the dead didn't really kill those elephants?

    And don't be silly. The rings didn't do anything. They were just put in for there to be a reason to have the One.
