I, as the starter of this topic have read them all, in the book of the fairytales of Tom Bombadil (don't know the english name) and was excited about the Anglo-Saxon poems. (The same week I borrowed Beowulf from the library :) I now almost know it from heart, to the horror of my classmates and family...)

I started this poll here because of the title of this section, and of course, the enthusistic visits around here ;)

Well, firstly, it is just plain old Tom Bombadil

Second, you forgot one, being

Loonis Logghe [ aka Mithrandil ]

'Shouldn't we send him a message and call in his help?' Erestor asked. 'It seems that he even has control of the Ring.'
'No, I shouldn't say it that way,' Gandalf said. 'Rather say the Ring hasn't got control of him. He's his own master. But he can't change the ring, nor break the power it has on others.'


No, my name isn't wrong, it's just a combination of Mithrandir and Mithril: look and see: MITHRandI(L/R)
