Should probably throw some questions at you first - I think we're all just very distracted is all.


Is this from Lord of the Rings?
Was it spoken by a wizard?

Yes, from The Lord of the Rings.

No, not spoken by a wizard.

No, spoken much later than when they met him.

elengil, not the Nazgûl.

Alatar, the translation I posted is closer to the original. The meaning didn't really change in the translation.

If you include me, then I say elengil is the rightful solver. I was thinking Rohan and nowhere near the Oliphants.
