An astute guess. Showing a
knowledge of early Middle-earth ages.
But...no.

Yes. This is tricksy, precious. They canst figure
it out.

But is it a legitimate poser, we wonders.

Yesss. But will they cheats by insisting on asking
several questions , like Thief Baggins?

(Further questions can be asked, but I probably
won't get to them before Tuesday).

No. It's a group. (That should be a bit of a hint).

Yes. At least some of the group was definitely in Numenor.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Actually a rather good question. But I don't have The
Silmarillion with me so I'll have to check later to see
whether I located the topic there or in another work,
and if I didn't find it in The Silmarillion, is a mention also in
The Silmarillion.

Pipe

Okay. I've checked Firefoot 's question and,
as far as I can see it's not in The Silmarillion. I
found the reference in another work.

Btw, as a general rule I think it would be too easy
and mechanical to allow questions as to what book
something is in, since it could progress to "Is it in a
given chapter?", "Between pages so-and-so?", etc. But
in this case I'd say it's a valid line of question, especially
since the group/incident I'm thinking of is only mentioned,
as far as I can determine, in one not overly obvious place,
although it is a valid bit.

Third Age? Yes. Highly probable.
First Age? No.
Second Age? Yes.
Man (as in race)? No.
Living? Yes.
Elf? No.
Dwarf? No.
Auinu? No.
Olvar? No.
Ent? Nope.
Snow-men of Forochel No.
Evil? Not so.
Plant? No.
Thorondir??? No.
Does it have a gender (not is it known; does it have one)?
Yes. It/they do.
Is it a single living thing rather than a group? No. It's a group.

Yes. At least some of the group was definitely in Numenor.
Are the members of the group able to talk? Yes.
In The Silmarillion? No.

I don't think it's ever gotten quite that specific. Asking about the book is usually about as specific as I've seen it go.

Not in the Sil, then... UT?

I hope so...

YES!

But it's still tricksy. If you're trawling for it be warned, it took
me almost half an hour yesterday to "refind" it.

Peachy... (strange word, that.)

Did any of the group ever have contact with Aldarion?

As the elves might say, both yes and no.
Let's say a subset of the group did, but I'm
thinking of another event involving a subset of the group,
and not including all of the former group that had contact
with Aldarion. (wish I knew what I just said)

Look. It happened later!

ENORMOUS HINT (well, sort of)
What was the nature of this group? Who were they?

Yes. They're all of the same race.

But what could it be, we wonders. Isn't man, or hobbit,
or nassty elves with bright swords, or entses,
or Snow-men's, is it, preciouss?

As the elves would say, both yes and no.

They are enemies and fighters against especially orcs, but
I don't believe there are reports that they ever
fought in large scale wars.

Are they Spiders?
No.

Yes. And yes.
But a more specific answer is required.

I understand. But it seemed to me to answer "yes"
would have been more deceptive. Even in UT
it seems a grey area. While they were admitted to the rank of the Atani,
it also says:
Quote:
The strangest of all the customs of the Folk of Haleth was the presence among them of people of a wholly different kind, the like of which the other Atani had evers een before....(and) They were considered a race apart.
Despite the views of the Elder, it seems a question whether they
were, indeed, a seperate free people. Could there even be interbreeding?

The clue is in the name:
