Nope.

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 02:02 AM

Just to be able to see it.

2. Muddled defects reveal him

ULDOR: Noisy, in a spin, with direction? See him!
6. Related to fungus he is, after a spin.

Try guessing the theme instead.

Traitors?

Urwen 06-22-2019 02:06 AM

Did you read my hints?

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 02:11 AM

4. SMEAGOL, if he loses the O, is an anagram of GLEAMS.

I was playing around with flaws/faults and glimmers/gleams/etc/etc way before you posted any hints. I can't find synonyms that work.

Urwen 06-22-2019 02:39 AM

Nope.

'Faults' is correct. Play around with it some more.

Here are my hints for 4 and 6 again.

4. ;)

6. What's the other word for 'of fungus'?

There is a reason my hint for 4 is this particular emoji. Think about what the reason could be.

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 07:54 AM

Is it the Ring that shines?

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 08:36 AM

Of fungus
 
Mouldy ... but I could not achieve anything with that.

I believe moldy is the North American spelling, but no luck there either.

Urwen 06-22-2019 08:43 AM

No to the ring, and as for 'of fungus', it's FUNGAL.......


I thought you would realize that, surely.....

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 09:11 AM

No, because Tolkien himself used the adjective FUNGOID. So I didn't think of fungal.

ULFANG, then.

Only one left. If you need a hint, it's there.

(By the way, I have immortalized my top three favorites: One with username, one with both avatar and signature, and one with location)

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 10:54 AM

I did guess traitors upthread, though. ;)

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 10:58 AM

GURGOF for the password (elvish for traitor).

And now, over to you. And somehow, my themes keep drifting in that direction lately. He sunk his claws into my heart and he doesn't let go.

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 11:16 AM

I have 3 puzzles ready at home. I'll post one tonight, when I get in.

Thanks for teaching me a new word. :)

And well done for producing another themed password. :)

Urwen 06-22-2019 11:31 AM

Well, I try.

Pervinca Took 06-22-2019 02:52 PM

Here we go again, then:

1. A little town, a dwarf, a lost path and one Master of Ceremonies combine – however tumultuously – for him.
2. She’s like a country in turmoil.
3. He confuses the French king.
4. A wilder roar than that will bring him.
5. Vegetable changes vowels and is blended for him.
6. It takes three paths, a sheep, and great unrest to find her.
7. See a Dark Elf gallivant around for him!
8. See him suffer lashes, initially, then chaos.
9. Policemen’s chorus loses order and sailor for him.
10. How the toga’d ones were toga’d, he shows, if chaotically.
11. For this, Petrarch’s muse, (here unsung), meets one who brought us a shieldmaiden, (we hear).
12. With seven pushbacks, it sounds like a seventies serial might cede a fragrant one for a bun fight.

Urwen 06-22-2019 03:03 PM

2. Rian, from Iran?

Urwen 06-22-2019 03:09 PM

Musings for 7
 
There are only two people called Dark Elf: Eol and Maeglin......

Urwen 06-22-2019 03:17 PM

6. Elenwe (EWE+L+N+E)

5. Tuor (Root-O+U)

Urwen 06-23-2019 12:31 AM

For the French king clue, is it some specific King, or just a French translation for the king?


For the Dark Elf clue, is it Eol/Maeglin, or am I off the mark entirely?

No, you need to take an actual vegetable, not a root, and change both its vowels.

You're on the right track for Dark Elf.

Why not try the French for king?

Urwen 06-23-2019 03:06 AM

Is it Eorl again?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 03:09 AM

No. Only 'around' is the anagram indicator. You need a synonym for 'gallivant.'

Urwen 06-23-2019 03:10 AM

Roam?

Urwen 06-23-2019 03:10 AM

3. Ori, from Roi?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 03:58 AM

1. A little town, a dwarf, a lost path and one Master of Ceremonies combine – however tumultuously – for him.

I don't know where you got ROAM from, but it isn't right.

I got it from here: https://www.thesaurus.com/browse/gallivant?s=t

Well done! Elin Jenkins brought us a wonderful Eowyn, which we heard on the radio.

Ah, I see. You need a different synonym for 'gallivant,' though. It jmplies more than wandering ... also being carefree and maybe irresponsible.

Urwen 06-23-2019 04:42 AM

Vagabond?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 04:44 AM

No, it's a verb.
