Fun! I don't remember "Amon Lanc" at all, or Khamul being the leader.Couple of suggestions - "Angband" missing an "n". In #8, it should say "former realm of #7." In #10, it should say "former name of #9."

Is it meant to believe that Arkenstone is the last of the Silmarils? Never! Correct me If I got it wrong... Nice quiz, though!

I agree. There were only three Silmarils, and their fates are accurately described in the quiz, so where would the Arkenstone come into it? It was mined by the dwarves, the Heart of the Mountain, not an elf-made Silmaril.

Yeah, not trying to argue with you guys. I was just trying to throw a slight curveball in the quiz. Some interesting reading though http://askmiddlearth.tumblr.com/post/41497309376/was-the-arkenstone-a-silmaril

Would you consider giving us Thorin without his second name? Ran out of time :(

While the Arkenstone as a Silmaril is an interesting theory, it would have been INSTANTLY recognized by Gandalf, Thranduil, and anyone else who saw it and knew anything about Middle-Earth history.
