Does it have a specific name?

Is it the stone that Pippin threw in the well in Moria?

I think my answers to Menel's questions may have been slightly misleading - maybe I should say he could attempt those things but may have slight difficulties due to weight, size, etc...

White-Hand *salute, duck, slash (aka Aragorn technique) at Menel*

Hm... in the past 15 questions Menel is the only one to have gotten a 'yes' answer, and both of them involve hurting Nilpaurion. Is this a problem? Yes

No, wait. It's not my turn.

Is it a building?

Is it located east of the Misty Mountains?
Or south of the Misty Mountains?

About the sig - Thanks! I have my mother to thank for it, she says the most hilarious things sometimes...

Used for a greater purpose basically means a small thing realted to a big thing, my thinking was a white stone used for Minas Tirith, and i take it was you that gave me the bad rep... i don't see why it was a bad question?

No, it wasn't me who gave you a bad rep! I don't think it was a bad question, just a little unclear. I understand now, though.

Doh! I forgot the south of the Misty Mountains thing. Then again, I took "not in Mordor" to encompass the Mountains around it.

Is it a Tower?
