"Angrod is gone, and Aegnor is gone, and Felagund is no more. Of Finarfin's children I am the last. But my heart is still proud. What wrong did the golden house of Finarfin do that I should ask the pardon of the Valar, or be content with an isle in the sea whose native land was Aman the blessed?"

Galadriel to Celebrimbor, in version 2 concurring the Elessar in Unfinished Tales. Ah, I do love that book...

For clarification what Tolkien books are we allowed to use in this thread? Obviously UT, Silm, LotR, and the Hobbit but are we allowed to use others?

In Lórien the Fair."

The HoME and the Minor Works have their own "Palantir of Fortune" threads, as you can see in the Quotable quotes forum, but they have not been used in a long while; there were too few participants.

Thanks, Inzil. First, the puzzle:

"_ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ /
_ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ , / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ . / _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ /
_ _ _ _ , / _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ , / _ _ _ _ _ _ /
_ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ , / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ /
_ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ /
_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ . / _ _ _ / _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ . /
_ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ ?"


Now, the comment:

For myself (as I am a latecomer to the game and couldn't find a single clear statement of the rules), I mostly use LotR, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion (I've only read The Children of Hurin once, so I'm not as familiar with it), but I occasionally use Unfinished Tales as well, as it contains some good stories in a reasonably finished form that do not appear in the central completed works. I wouldn't touch the HoME books because they contain a lot of conflicting ideas, abandoned versions, and stuff that is just too much "scholarly" material for one to presume that all fans of Tolkien's world would be familiar with them. Almost all Tolkien fans I know (or, more explicitly, those who read the books before the movies came out, which at my age is a hefty percentage of them) have read UT; very few have even touched the HoME books. So I kinda figure that using them as the source would be a rather underhanded attempt to be obscure. It's very safe to assume that any puzzle I post will come from LotR, TH, TS, or UT (probably in that order). I'll eschew UT in the future if people feel it violates the rules too greatly. Just FYI.

Oh, I hope UT is allowed. It's far easier for me to solve a puzzle from it then it is from some parts of LotR or the Hobbit. I'm far more likely to be found rereading a portion of the Silm or UT then the others.

First, the solution:
Quote:
But all worthy things that are in peril as the world now stands, those are my care. And for my part, I shall not wholly fail of my task, though Gondor should perish, if anything passes through this night that can still grow fair or bear fruit and flower again in days to come. For I also am a steward. Did you not know?
Gandalf to Denethor
Great quote!

In those days they had to close threads after 10-12 pages and start new ones to conserve bandwidth , and at the head of those later threads the rules were stated . However, later, when the site was upgraded all the old threads were joined together again. (btw, in the beginning we were able to use capital letters for the whole quote, so names couldn't give it away too quickly)

I agree with you that posting quotes from the HoME in the main Palantir thread wouldn't be fair, because only very few people are familiar with them (I guess that's why the separate Palantir-Threads "died"). (Same with the "Minor works" )
