1. Is it a drink? No
2. Is it a person? Yes
3. Is it from the race of Men? Yes
4. Is it female? No
5. Is he good? No
6. Is he from Gondor? No
7. Is it Wormtongue? No
8. Is it Bill Ferny? No
9. Is he fully human? Ye- no. He's not a humanoid like orks or even elves. He's from the race of Men in the way Aragorn is, but not the way Théoden is. I hope I'm getting this right!
10. Is he from the "past" -- ie, from the "history" within the books? No. His history is old, but he appears only in the present.
Which would y'all prefer: if we get to, for example, question 17 and the questions are no where in the ball park, should the... host (?) give a good hint, or should we just continue questions until someone gets it?
