Close!

Urulókë is singular ("fire-serpent" or "dragon") and Urulóki is plural ("dragons"). At least according to the manuscripts in The War of the Jewels - it does appear that in putting together The Silmarillion Christopher went with the wrong form - at least from my limited understanding of Quenya plurals.

Hello Mr Burns
Maybe ebay worth a look. You could easily pick up books 1-8 very reasonable if not first impressions and in good condition if you shop around and be patient. Even 2-8 firsts regularly go for less than £40 subject to condition. Books 9-12 are a little more tricky but maybe with some nice hot tea in you it will ease the purse strings! :.) i spent the last 3 years building up my set and still would like to change 1 or 2 - guess thats the fun of it.
Maybe HC will have a sale if future !

I still need some tutoring on the derivation of the new name!


According to the Index in the back of The Silmarillon, Urulóki is a Quenya word meaning fire-serpent or dragon, very apt for Jeremy's avatar. I assume that Urulókë is the plural of dragons.

Contrary to an earlier post, I have replied to Urulókë's email (I still need some tutoring on the derivation of the new name!) and will accept the tea. As I noted to him, I don't remember the last time I won anything (except for $2 on a scratch off lottery ticket.) However, I have enough unopened calendars to satisfy that obsession. (OK, I'll never have enough but that's my problem!) So I will open the boxes of tea and share them with my coworkers (who are a great bunch of people), talk about this gift, capture their comments, and report back when I have done so. If I can find where to hide the boxes, I will stash them away though. I guess we all share that compulsion or we would not be posting here!

Beaming from The Green Hill Country,

Parm
