Arguably, but that's not what I'm looking for

COH says that he succeeded in escaping, but that his hand was cut off

William Cloud Hicklin 05-10-2019 01:10 PM

1. GRISHNAKH: Arab handmaid ate Jewish pastry- the upset without 440 produced a fiend (sword-hand pierced by an arrow)
2. SAURON: Get out? Nein! He's backwards! (dactylectomy by Isildur)
3. BEREN: Remember England; he was in there. (wolf with the munchies)
4. TRAHALD: Bluetooth gets garbled after tea, so you'll have to unscramble him (hands hurt by Sauron's torturers)
5. MORGOTH: Black. Black clothes, black outlook (burned by Silmarils)
6. MAEDHROS: He's like, "Crazy beach, crazy!" (hand amputated by Fingon, *and* burned by a Silmaril)
7. MAGLOR: Glam rocker without even thinking- he was the first and might be the last (burned by a Silmaril)
8. ???N???: Key crew! Activity will reveal him
9. FRODO: He's a dunce on one side (dactylectomy by Gollum)
10. ISILDUR: The moon, duh? (burned by the Ring)

Over to you, Urwen

Pervinca Took 05-10-2019 01:15 PM

Key could actually be any letter of the alphabet, couldn't it? Every one of them is a computer key.

Yeah, but that's too easy

Pervinca Took 05-10-2019 02:43 PM

Not for the guesser!

Urwen 05-10-2019 02:49 PM

1. A measure swallows a spun carpet for a king
2. A turbulent wind and an insect reveal him
3. Double noted, an article and an animal reveal the flutist
4. A staff is delayed, in reverse, for him
5. A headless amphibian reveals him
6. An ancient animal enclosure circulates for the leader of two
7. A booklet, a drink and a direction are muddled up for the slayer
8. An element, a note and a river fluctuate, and a miner with a broken arm is revealed

ROD-LAG backwards is Galdor

Urwen 05-10-2019 03:15 PM

Yeah, each time Pervinca did one of the council ones, I was disappointed that they weren't Lords of Gondolin, so I made a puzzle for them. (And so I can make the 'one of these things is not like the others' joke. :p)

William Cloud Hicklin 05-10-2019 09:49 PM

It's been a busy evening, folks, and I have to get to bed. New puzzle in the morning

Urwen 05-11-2019 03:19 AM

Before you do, I have just one question: did you get the joke? (The one I've quoted, that is.)

William Cloud Hicklin 05-11-2019 09:06 AM

1: Bean designated tenth man, cut here
2: Here you'll find the bewildered spokesman for the heads of failed enterprises.
3: Washington, Whitney and Hood got together, but it was left out
4: Here they confuse Arwen with a banker
5: Garlicky slowpoke; if you switch church leaders, you're there.
6: 3 nurses donate a user interface, but it's a mess
7: The manors of a Roman family in a noble degree
8: Cabbageville
9: Named for its leading resident, who sounds like a Borg
10: Here is a ruined bargain

No, I don't think I cottoned to it (except that Maeglin was the Judas of the group)

Well, he was still a Lord of Gondolin. Just the bad one.

Urwen 05-11-2019 09:17 AM

Back to your puzzle.

Bean = Sean Bean = Ned Stark.

There is no location with 'neck' in its name, otherwise it would have been perfect.....

Urwen 05-11-2019 09:20 AM

10. DALE (From DEAL)

William Cloud Hicklin 05-11-2019 09:24 AM

1: Bean designated tenth man, cut here
2: Here you'll find the bewildered spokesman for the heads of failed enterprises.
3: Washington, Whitney and Hood got together, but it was left out
4: Here they confuse Arwen with a banker
5: Garlicky slowpoke; if you switch church leaders, you're there.
6: 3 nurses donate a user interface, but it's a mess

8: Cabbageville
9: Named for its leading resident, who sounds like a Borg
DALE: Here is a ruined bargain

Urwen 05-11-2019 09:27 AM

9. Beorn's Hall (Because Beorn does kinda sound like a borg)

William Cloud Hicklin 05-11-2019 09:33 AM

Close enough. Actually because Beorn is cognate with Bjorn, as in Bjorn Borg.

1: Bean designated tenth man, cut here
2: Here you'll find the bewildered spokesman for the heads of failed enterprises.
3: Washington, Whitney and Hood got together, but it was left out
4: Here they confuse Arwen with a banker
5: Garlicky slowpoke; if you switch church leaders, you're there.

8. Lake Town (KALE+TOWN)

Theme: Places/People in the Hobbit

Urwen 05-11-2019 10:05 AM

4. Forest River (Because it almost contains INVESTOR)

Urwen 05-11-2019 10:08 AM

7. Nogrod (contains N, RO and D)

William Cloud Hicklin 05-11-2019 10:58 AM

8 is correct!

1: Bean designated tenth man, cut here
2: Here you'll find the bewildered spokesman for the heads of failed enterprises.
3: Washington, Whitney and Hood got together, but it was left out
4: Here they confuse Arwen with a banker
5: Garlicky slowpoke; if you switch church leaders, you're there.

10: DALE

Urwen 05-11-2019 11:05 AM

Theme: Places/People in Rhovanion.

I am searching for a place which begins with N and ends with D, but there are none that fit the theme

Urwen 05-11-2019 11:14 AM

Password is Wilderland, another name for Rhovanion. :D
