anyone else think Isengard was Sauron at first?
May 4th, 2011 at 11:45 GMT
Isn't 17 a goblin? Good job! I was waiting for it!
May 4th, 2011 at 12:10 GMT
@H0limkill- Actually, Tolkien uses the word goblin in the Hobbit and the word Orc in LOTR, in the latter identifying goblins as a breed of orcs. http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Orc I've added goblin as an accepted answer. Glad you liked it!

i believe the phial of galadriel is also refered to as the Light of Elendil
May 4th, 2011 at 14:04 GMT
Excellent suggestion, it's added.
May 4th, 2011 at 16:40 GMT
i tried pipe-weed for tolkien too many times. luckily i recognized the face afterwards.
May 4th, 2011 at 19:28 GMT
It's actually Light of Earendil
Jul 28th, 2011 at 21:11 GMT
That close up or a warg looks so much like a rancor that I almost put it as the answer.
Sep 17th, 2011 at 19:14 GMT
Definitely thought Tolkien was Bilbo at first. Great quiz!
Oct 7th, 2011 at 14:10 GMT
Another good quiz. Would you consider accepting Light of Eärendil for the fourth one? Can't believe I didn't get the last one, I've just finished the book (again) and that picture's in the back.

I think the Witch King should be acceptable for #13 since the picture is of him. Mumukil should be another answer for oliphant as well.
Feb 14th, 2012 at 12:58 GMT
@bizzlebiz13- The correct spelling is 'mumakil' and it's already accepted. Similarly, "Witch King of Angmar" is also already an accepted answer.
Feb 14th, 2012 at 22:00 GMT
Mumakil probably ought not to be accepted, but Mumak, yes, because it's just one (It annoys me on the Extended Version DVD set how Peter Jackson, Richard Taylor et al consistently refer to a singular Oliphaunt as "a Mumakil").
Feb 17th, 2012 at 06:23 GMT
@Hejman My bad about the spelling error. My first thought should have been to check the spelling instead of it not being accepted. I still don't get why "of Angmar" is needed though.
Dec 31st, 2012 at 02:51 GMT
That pic of Orthanc looks so much like Barad-Dur. Tried to type dozens of different ways. Didnt work, and I gave up
Jan 18th, 2013 at 01:37 GMT
I guessed every human character I could think of, for Tolkien. :(

I think you should accept star/light of earendil for the phial of galadriel.
Feb 21st, 2013 at 16:23 GMT
I just went to add it and it was already there. Not sure if it had been there all along or if the admins just added it. Thanks for the suggestion and thank you to HQ for adding it.
Feb 21st, 2013 at 16:51 GMT
I just took the quiz and tried both "star of earendil" and "light of earendil" and neither worked for me. :-(
Feb 21st, 2013 at 16:55 GMT
@skythrock: That's probably because it's "Elendil," not "Earendil." I can vouch that Light of Elendil worked for me. Source: http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Star_of_Elendil
Feb 21st, 2013 at 17:02 GMT
this is a great game!!!!
Feb 21st, 2013 at 17:14 GMT
I thought the last clue was Longbottom Leaf!
Feb 21st, 2013 at 17:16 GMT
I'm looking at the wolf pic going "Is that a warg? No, wait, that's a term from Game of Thrones..."
Feb 21st, 2013 at 17:16 GMT
To clarify, it is most definitely the Light of Earendil. Elendil was a king of Numenor, why would his star be their most beloved? The Star of Elendil was a jewel worn by the kings of Numenor, and then recovered by Aragorn after retaking Orthanc. http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Phial_of_Galadriel is the Light of Earendil. Admins, please chance the acceptance from Elendil to Earendil.
Feb 21st, 2013 at 17:29 GMT
Yep, that was it. I was an idiot and had it set to Elendil, not Earendil. The good folks at Sporcle HQ have already corrected it, though. I'm not sure whether that mistake means I need to get my hearing checked or my eyesight. Or both...
Feb 21st, 2013 at 17:56 GMT
Didn't expect Tolkien. Tried Bilbo a number of times!
Feb 21st, 2013 at 19:19 GMT
Earendil still not working.
Feb 21st, 2013 at 19:46 GMT
Yeah, I looked up the spelling of oliphaunt.
Feb 21st, 2013 at 19:58 GMT
Least guessed? Really? I guess I spent WAY too many hours playing Angband (rephial.org)...
Feb 21st, 2013 at 23:02 GMT
I tried Tower of Isengard for Isengard.... *facepalm*
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 03:40 GMT
Isn't LotR about hobbits?
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 04:41 GMT
Tried "Galadriel's Phial" but not "Phial of Galadriel". D'oh!
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 13:00 GMT
Didn't know the Warg - I've got a feeling they're also called Wolves of Isengard, or Werewolves of Isengard, at least in the book (unless I'm thinking of something different). Can anyone confirm/refute?
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 13:11 GMT
@Richard Wortham: in the films they are certainly also called Wolves of Isengard (Theoden says "The wolves of Isengard shall return" after they are attacked on the way to Helm's Deep), but I can't remember if they are referred to as such in the books. As for Werewolves: they exist in Tolkien's universe, but are of a different species to Wargs.
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 14:51 GMT
I tried starglass for phial of Galadriel. I'm not sure if that is just a name Sam used at some point though.
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 15:46 GMT
So close! I forgot Balrog! And I thought Shadowfax was Shadowmere for some reason o.O
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 21:01 GMT
Somebody already said they tried Longbottom leaf, I opted to guess "Old Toby" and "The Finest Weed in the Southfarthing" with no success
Feb 22nd, 2013 at 22:22 GMT
"Light of Earendil" still doesn't work for Phial of Galadriel. Also, "Star-glass" should be accepted for it, according to http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Phial_of_Galadriel.
Feb 23rd, 2013 at 00:50 GMT
Why is the picture of Orthanc not from the movies, but everything else is?
