Urwen 05-15-2019 09:54 AM

Which makes me think I am right, and the theme is people with two siblings.

I don't tend to refer to the films if I can help it. ;)

5/ 'at sixes and sevens' makes me think of Don't Cry For Me, Argentina
Indeed. Or it *could* be an anagram indicator.

Quote:

7/ At the time? Er, when? :O Is the answer URWEN? ^_^ It would actually kind of fit - 'heard' indicates a soundalike, and it's a valid answer to 'at the time?'. Could also be 'her, when?'.
The WEN bit is right. Think back to playground days. What might you have said to someone to mock or gloat at them?

:O I am shocked, shocked that you think I would ever have done such a thing.

I was the one hiding in the corner. :p Ner ner ner!

... oh.

#7 NERWEN, perhaps?

Is the password Elfhild or Elfhelm? Yea or nay?

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:10 AM

Women with 'wen' in their name: Morwen, Nerwen, Emerwen, Arwen, Urwen....

Uh-oh. Silmarien? That rules out, um... every name starting with 'elf'.

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:11 AM

Maybe it is Urwen, with the phrase being 'You are' or 'U R'.

Only if the highlighted letter is the first one.

Pervinca Took 05-15-2019 10:13 AM

MENELDUR: Repair and reign through turmoil, he does. Move along one.
LALAITH: Back number thirteen. Initially lose trust, but replace with direction. See her!
FIRIEL: She reforms one long-serving prisoner.
SILMARIEN: A dwarf sickens, but is restored by her.
5. No ease of the womb, we hear. At sixes and sevens, he is.
6. He arranged a note of complaint.
NERWEN: Was she heard to mock or gloat at the time?

Sorry ... did not see that Huey had worked out what 'at sixes and sevens' was indicating. Things have been moving very fast!

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:14 AM

And if my supposition that individuals with two siblings is correct, then that leaves one of (Turin, Nienor, Isilme, Faramir or Artamir) as one of the remaining answers.

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:16 AM

Oh, oh, is the password ELFSTAN. There, I've nabbed it.

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:21 AM

Elfstan - sibling to Firiel
Lalaith - Sibling to Turin and Nienor
Nerwen - Sibling to Finrod and Orodreth and Angrod and Aegnor
Meneldur - Sibling to Silmarien


Meaning that 6 is Angrod (GROAN + D)

EDIT: THIS WAS THE POST I MEANT TO ADD 'NERWEN' INTO ... BUT I HAD TO LEAVE WORK IN A HURRY!

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:25 AM

Does that mean Angrod, the password and the theme are all incorrect? And here I was certain I had it...

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:32 AM

The T clue must be either Turin or Orodreth. Not sure which one.

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:38 AM

Of the womb is UTERINE. UTERIN sounds like UTERINE. If we remove NE (for No Ease) we get Turin.

ANGROD: He arranged a note of complaint.
N: Was she heard to mock or gloat at the time?

THEME: BROTHER & SISTER PAIRS

Please give the reasoning for Turin and Angrod, though, (apart from them completing the pairs and starting with T and A respectively!)

But I did. You just missed them......

In case you didn't see them.....

No, it leaves you with UTERI. :D

However, TURIN is UTERINE with NO E'S (which sounds like (we hear) 'no ease.'

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:42 AM

6 is Angrod (GROAN + D)

Urwen 05-15-2019 10:44 AM

And I think you forgot to include NERWEN......

Pervinca Took 05-15-2019 10:46 AM

Well done on ANGROD, and good effort on TURIN.

Sorry, the posts in this thread have been coming so thick and fast today, I literally haven't always seen them in time, or they've arrived while I've been writing a post.

The theme is specifically brother and sister pairs.

ELFSTAN and FIRIEL are the two children of Elanor Gardner/Gamgee and Fastred of Greenholm.

Ya, I figured that out.

Do I get to make a new one now?

I thought I'd added Nerwen in. I was about to, but I had to pack up quickly to get a lift home from my boss.

Well done all, and over to Urwen!

Urwen 05-15-2019 11:46 AM

Enjoy, for I am an oathkeeper, like Feanor.

1. Diminish, with direction, for a noble maiden.
2. The Nazgul are in disarray, alternatively, for her.
3. Note a wild goose for her.
4. Combine a note and an element with wrath for her.
5. A whole country for her.
6. Bloomers are in turmoil for her.
7. Initially, ride or move. Not old? Reverse and see her.
8. Before direction and a dwarf woman, she appears.

Pervinca Took 05-15-2019 11:57 AM

8. Erendis.

Ere + n + dis.

Pervinca Took 05-15-2019 12:19 PM

4. Maybe AMARIE.

Am (Americium) + A (note) + IRE.

Pervinca Took 05-15-2019 12:21 PM

5. RIAN? (Iran).

Urwen 05-15-2019 12:22 PM

For 4, right reasoning, wrong element
For 5, take the 'whole' part of the clue into account too.

Urwen 05-15-2019 12:23 PM

1. Diminish, with direction, for a noble maiden.
2. The Nazgul are in disarray, alternatively, for her.
3. Note a wild goose for her.
4. Combine a note and an element with wrath for her.
5. Every language for her.
6. Bloomers are in turmoil for her.
7. Initially, ride or move. Not old? Reverse and see her.
ERENDIS: Before direction and a dwarf woman, she appears.

I've amended the clue 5 slightly.

Pervinca Took 05-15-2019 12:26 PM

1. ARWEN.

Wane + r.

Pervinca Took 05-15-2019 12:27 PM

Maybe women who waited a long time for their men?

Urwen 05-15-2019 12:29 PM

Pervinca Took 05-15-2019 12:29 PM

Maybe ANCALIME for the password?

Nope. As with yours, you need to figure out more stuff before you can see the theme.....
