Yes. Well, presumably. Just how big should a bread box be?

Possibly there may be some green involved - I don't think specific colors are ever described in relation to this person/place/thing/idea.

Next?

Idea? Is it an idea? As in "colourless green ideas sleep furiously"?

Silly silly, that is a normal 20 questions question! And a bread box is generally about the size of a standard mailbox, though perhaps a little wider.

No, but I like the way you think!

(Then again, I guess it was Tolkien's idea to begin with, but we could say that about every part of the story...)

Presumably bigger than a bread box, possibly some green.

Is it alive?

Good heavens, it's an object from LotR. I know, it's a needle in a hay stack!

It's not armor, but it is appreciated.

Is it Sam's cooking kit?

Is it the elfen bread? (don't mock me if that's the wrong term or the wrong book/movie. just remember kindly that I'm the one who asked if the thing was a plant which led you all to the right answer a while back.)

Not elfen bread (lembas)

Not that either.

Nope.



Hint: when searching for a needle in a haystack it helps to take the divide-and-conquer approach rather than diving into the whole pile.

Oh, and as to "appreciated" don't read too much into that - I just meant it in comparison to loving a person or animal since this is a thing. It's just useful.

You can absolutely play! Not a palantir, but if it makes you feel any better I almost chose that for this turn.

Hint?

OK, hint: The object does not go anywhere (it's not carried around), so one might ask to whom does this object belong, or where is it located. We know, so far, that it's good, it is appreciated for its usefulness, and at least one of the Fellowship make use of it....
