Nice quiz! I recommend that for the 5 wizard question, you allow their names, not just their titles. Also, allow orodruin for Amon Amarth, and don't use plural for palantir! Just a little reminder!:)

good and challenging, but the name of the stairs is "The Secret Stairs" not Cirith Ungol which is a orc and uruk-hai inhabited tower in mordor. Which is where Sam goes to save Frodo after Shagrat removes his mithril shirt.

Loved how challenging this was! Gandalf, however, is older than Arda itself, and his age is unkown but thought to be closer to 24,000 years.

Nice quiz, enjoy the challenge, BUT... I typed out the correct names and colors of all five Istari over and over and over - it kept telling me that Gandalf the Grey, Saruman the White, Palando the Blue, Alatar the Blue and Radagast the Brown WERE WRONG. They're not. However, in your own answer key, Radagast the Brown is spelled "Bown" is THAT what was keeping it from accepting my answer?

I did type Eru and Iluvatar a number of times, but honestly did not think to type them together, my bad.

In regards to Mount Doom, why is Amon Amarth the only accepted answer when it is also called Orodruin? The question does ask for names (plural) for Mount Doom, so I kept typing "Orodruin, Amon Amarth" and again it would not accept despite both being correct answers.

In regards to the player above calling the Stairs of Cirith Ungol "The Secret Stairs" - that must be either from the movie only or in an unauthorized translation or reprint. The title of Chapter 8 TT is "The Stairs of Cirith Ungol"
