    Ah, so this must be one those other parlours young Nob hinted at. I think we’ll use this one to discuss the Ent’s rumour about a new MX. Well, as he says himself – and he should know, since he’s involved – it is more of a fact than a rumour.

    But what is it going to be?

    You can write your answers on a postcard and put them on the mantlepiece along with that letter from Gandalf that I’m supposed to give to…um, someone (alas, can’t remember who).

    I guess the new MX has got six legs, but only two on the ground.:lol:

    Six legs but only two on the ground? Or do you mean two NOT on the ground? If it’s only two on the ground, then I guess it could be a rider on a rearing horse, or Sam carrying Fred up Mount Doom. But I think I need more clues.

    I should add (since I know that Fred doesn’t have four legs) that I had in mind the exact moment when Gollum leapt on them. Still, it doesn’t matter really, since Theobald has intimated that I’m barking up the wrong tree – um, if he’ll pardon the expression.

    But why are we having to guess at all? Why doesn’t he just tell us? Probably he’d regard that as being too hasty.

    Huoommmm …. so it would be … much too hasty … as I for myself have to find out more about it first … so to say … nice pun, by the way, Master Barliman.

    Ent? Six legs, two on the ground? M185!!!

    Oups. We need a miniature NOT made yet…

    Many horses only have two legs on the ground, mainly those running (and Theoden). Can we hope for another rider?

    Huooooommmm … I think so … what about three legs down and three legs up? … rhuoommm. This way even Master Barliman might guess the posure more correctly, methinks … huom.

    No, Master Axel. … rhuuoommm .. nice to see you again here at the Pony by the way …huoomm
    though your guess concerning feet was quite humorous … huommm … rhuooomhom … I would neither think of me being wise – as that elf judges me – nor being that blinded to consider any thought in that direction for the pose of that tiny metal thing… rhuuuuooommmm …hom …
    alas … just saw that I might mind my spelling … rhuuoomm

    I got it!!!

    Its Sam, Merry and Pippin performing a drinking song and throwing one leg high …

    No, that would involve one of them having BOTH feet in the air (only two of the six are on the ground, remember).

    Huoommmmm … maybe three feet up and three feet down …. I guess

    No, Holger has said only two feet are on the ground.

    Maybe it is something with no feet on the ground!:lol:

    Presumably SOMEONE knows what the new Mx is going to be, so why don’t they tell us? I can’t think of a single reason why it needs to be kept a secret!

    maybe because until the master is not fixed yet and from it the master mould being tested…. saying what it will be without knowing if it will come to life or if it’ll have to be changed due to lastminute technical problems…, well saying it could prove a desillusion, would it happen not to be possible to get it..

    Well that’s only my theory…. I don’t know what the MX is . Still, remember the problem for the Moria gate… indeed all of us knew it was planned because it is MS, not MX… but Mithril had to keep quiet and tried everything before giving up… because it was an announced project. They would not have the same problem (involving time and money) if there is no guarantee due to the fact there is no announcement, so nobody is frustrated (except the one who is submitting the idea)

    Hmm…. I think this theory doesn’t work. I also believe the gate was not produced, not because of problems with the mould, rather because Chris was not happy with the design and there was just no time left to start again, or rework what was existing. I would love to see the gate in the state it is, unfinished! It really is amazing what you actually can cast in pewter and believe me, I know what I’m talking about. :)

    well, there was a project around to resubmit the gate as a MX along with Narvi and Celebrimbor, an unfinished gate but in a vignette rather than by itself. I was among the volunteers for this project, so Theobald was I think… but landpruneir did not give any news lately so I don’t know the state of this project…

    I see from the Mithril newsletter that the Mx is awaiting TE’s blessing, so whatever it is has obviously been completed.

    I therefore ask again, why is it’s identity such a secret? Surely one of the my patrons knows what it is and can tell us? (The Tree will say I’m being ‘hasty’, but patience has never been my strong point.)
