Sure!

Loved by The Master- Master of Doom, that´s Turin
killed by The Father- of Dragons, that´s Glaurung, he destroyed Nargothrond and killed Finduilas
buried in The Hill- Haudh-en-Arwen, a hill, that´s her grave
daughter of The Second- her fathr is Orodeth, second in the line of Finarfin

I liked it! [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

Thumbs up

Ah-hah. I was thinking only that she had been killed by the orcs who captured her. I'll try to remember to look at other connections next time. Btw, wasn't she buried in the haudh-en Elleth? The Haudh-en-Arwen was the burial place of Haleth, I believe. It was an excellent riddle, though.

My guess is from The Hobbit:
Perhaps Bard? Stunted meaning Dwarves, of course, as they felt the dragon's treasure to be entirely theirs, thus making any other claim false. Then of course there was the Arkenstone, which was, in a sense, stolen.

I would say Fram, who slew the dragon Scatha, inherited his treasure which was largely Dwarvish in origin, and was promptly killed by the Dwarves for his trouble.

Thank you, Gil-Galad. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I ruled for a time
In the place of a king
And made up lost time
By his reckoning

You are correct, Nuranar. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] It is indeed Mardil Voronwe, who ruled Gondor as Steward in the King's stead. He "made up lost time" by adjusting the King's Reckoning, the calendar of Numenor.

Aha, I haven't totally lost my touch. Although your riddles have me pulling out my hair.

Flee from the foreshortened warrior

No, both wrong.

Misleading in name...think full name/title/anything known by.

And the first two lines are a cryptic clue.

Forshortened- He's a hobbit.

Dim Companion- Merry was a little woozy during his Uruk-hai captivity period.

Yeesh. I was really thinking that it was Sam. You know, as Samwise the Strong being the 'warrior' and the name being misleading, for both 'strong' and 'wise', and his dim companion being Frodo while he was fading... but you said it wasn't...

Is it Legolas as the foreshortened warrior giving the illusion of depth? And Gimli being his dim companion?

I'm lost. I'll keep thinking on this

Good guess, Lily, but not what I was thinking.

I should clarify that the first two lines provide a cryptic clue to something very closely concerned with the person in question. They are not a clue to the person him/her/itself.

May I guess Frodo? Misleading in name, as he was a Baggins, and unerring in his successful path to Mount Doom. Perhaps the dim companion was... er actually I don't have much idea what it could be but the last two lines might point to him.

Sounds good, Gil-galad, excellent reasoning. But it's not what I had in mind.

The first 2 lines are a cryptic clue to a thing, not to a person.

The last 2 lines are the Who Am I itself.

If you hadn't said that it wasn't a major character, I'd guess at Sauron. Misleading in name, as Annatar, the Ring as the 'dim companion' -- but of course if it isn't major, then it couldn't be him.

I'll carry on thinking.

I GOT IT

is it Gandalf becasue his elven ring he never showed and he was the one that brought together all of man aganest Sauron

foreshortened warrior- gandalf was thought as a old man or begger by the Rohirrim
dim companion- his elven ring was never revealed entirely
misleading in name- Gandalf the Grey, old man
unearring in path- did many things too change the fate of Middle Earth, liek kill Balrog and then he returned

No, no, and no. Excellent, excellent work, Gil-galad. But, like I have already said,

It is NOT a major character in any sense of the word.

The first 2 lines are a CRYPTIC clue to a THING, NOT to the person.

Only the last 2 lines correspond to the person.
