Answer: b). The island has the form of a star.
2) Who were the first humanoid creatures to breath the air in Arda(the earth)?
Answer: c). Although by right the Elves were suppose to be the first humanoid creatures, which is why they are known as the Firstborn. However, the Vala Aulë made the Dwarfs and they had lived, though only for a little while, before Eru Iluvatar put them to sleep to awaken when the Elves came.
3 The Maia Sauron is known by many names. What is his true name and the one he calls himself by?
Answer: a). Mairon, the admireable, was Sauron's true name and he called himself by that until the end of the Second age.
4 In Middle-earth there are/were two fortresses known as Minas Tirith. Which was the first that was built?
a) The one in Gondor.
b) The one at Tol Sirion.
c) The one in Valinor.
Answer: b). This is a trick question. There is no fortress called Minas Tirith in Valinor. The first Minas Tirith was built by Finrod Felagund, brother of Galadriel, on the island of Tol Sirion in the northern Beleriand.
5 The Silmarils were crafted by the great smith Feanor. Of which elven kindered was he?
a) The Vanyar.
b) The Teleri.
c) The Noldor.
Answer: c). Feanor was the son of Finwe, first king of the Noldor, or Gnomes as they are called some places. The Noldor are great craftmen, and we can thank them for discovering the gems or we would not have so many juicy jewellries in-game.
In his encounter with the Balrog, Durin's Bane, at the bridge of Khazad-dum, Gandalf says: "I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dak fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn." What is this "Secret Fire", "Anor" and "Udûn"?
Answer: Minas Tirith in Gondor was earlier called Minas Anor - the tower of the Sun. Anor is the sindarin name for the Sun.
Udûn is another name for Utumno, Morgoth's great fortress in the north.
The Secret Fire, also known as the Flame Imperishable, is what Eru Iluvatar used to give things life. When the Ainur made the Music of the Ainur, Iluvatar put the Secret Fire in the middle of the void and gave their music life, and thus they had created Ea, the world that is!
