Ach, quite right, quite right! I am sorry, for some reason I had it in my head that it was something else.

And I apologize for sounding (as I now see) like a know-it-all!

No worries, Elengil. I also think of it as "Beren and Lúthien", but wanted to be exact, given its a puzzle..

Is this the one:

He sought her ever, wandering far
Where leaves of years were thickly strewn,

That's the one!

And having even just read it, I was still so sure it was the Tale of Lúthien LOL

The Lord of Wisdom immediately sat and angry and laughed at him.

Is "Lord of Wisdom" an accurate translation of the original?

Is it from Frodo's song remembering Gandalf (when he thought Gandalf had fallen in Moria)?

"A lord of wisdom throned he sat,
swift in anger, quick to laugh"

That is a very good guess, and would be even a better guess if the published Silmarillion included all of Finwë and Míriel's sad story (or if we included in this game material only published in HoMe).

I will say that it was said by (but not to) someone who was a descendent of Finwë's (though not of Míriel's).

I skimmed through the sections with Maeglin and Aredhel, and didn't spot it. Should I be looking elsewhere?
