"My dear People!" Hannihr announced, as she reached centre stage. "Thank you for your patience! It has been too long since Round One. To show my thanks, I have increased the winnings. An extra 100 gold coins are now in the pot! Good things come to those who wait. But remember, not all that glitters is gold!"
"The winnings for the Big LOTRO Quiz 2016 are as follows: 200 gold coins, level and class appropriate armour, a commemorative cloak, an almost infinite amount of ales, wines and beers, as well as an interview with yourself featured in Evernight's occasionally daily newspaper, The Evernight Report!" Hannihr took a hefty swig of her drink before continuing.
"Round two is dedicatedly solely to LITERATURE BY TOLKIEN AND TOLKIEN SCHOLARS*. This round will be particularly difficult, so do your best!"
*Tolkien Scholars refer to writers who are knowledgeable in Tolkien literature (published essays, critical literature, translations and commentary).
"Let Round Two begin! Good luck!"
