Minor Characters of Tolkien Quiz


Second game for this year's party!  Match the name of a minor character from The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings with what Middle-earth race they belong to.  Obviously, there will be more than one character for some races.  Your answers should be in the form of the number that corresponds with the name, then the letter that corresponds with their race.  So, like "21. A" -- make sense?

1. Bill Ferny
2. Dain
3. Elladin
4. Elrohir
5. Eothain
6. Fatty Bolger
7. Ghan-buri-ghan
8. Grishnakh
9. Gwaihir
10. Haldir
11. Hama
12. Ioreth
13. Lugburz
14. Nob
15. Nori
16. Quickbeam
17. Shagrat
18. Snaga
19. Ted Sandyman
20. Theodred

A. dwarf
B. elf
C. human
D. hobbit
E. orc/uruk-hai
F. other

Good luck!  I'll post the answers and your scores on Saturday.
