The Second Kinslaying

Alright my little elflings! I created a little challenge that I’m going to take myself and I’d be happy if some of you might like to join!
Now, there are a few questions that require Silmarillion knowledge but if you haven’t read the book and don’t know the character the questions is about…don’t let this discourage you…just skip to the next question :)
Also I’d love it if you’d tag your answers as ‘30 day tolkien elves challenge’ so I and others can see your opinions :D

Enjoy!! :D
