Well, maybe SILMARILLION - LION, for Silmaril?

Pervinca Took 05-15-2022 02:15 PM

TAVROBEL: Rave, bolt around, but find the little town!
ROCHALLOR: Animated king combines with vault for a mount.
ISENGARD: Iniquity and muck combine for him.
SILMARIL: Stone me! A book without a beast. Or an article.
YOZAYAN: Gift of a street map book, mirrored within a small round toy one short November.
LORIEN: Here is a North Oxford college in minimal confusion.
LALAITH: Oh la la! It helps if you look for her carefully. (She’s running along, as was her wont).
ARVEGIL: He’s easily confused with the middle name of Christopher’s sometime helper.
BELTHRONDING: A weapon showing effects of peroxide? There’s three scattered inside, barring the loss of direction – but most of it falls in a clump.
ISENGARD: It’s here, somewhere in this newly risen garden.
CELEBRANT: A very flower of a priest?

THE SILMARILLION - LION (BEAST) - THE (ARTICLE) = SILMARIL.

And over to Urwen!

Well, I had the 1st letter, and it's kind of what they're both known for.

Vietnamese money is DONG. Dongron? Dongbill? Nogrod? ;)

Whoops! It starts with S.

Wrong unit.

Pervinca Took 05-16-2022 03:31 PM

N = Naugrim?

TOM(B) ?

Do Bombadil's verses count as craft? :D Or perhaps his arrangements of lilies?

It doesn't unravel, either ....

Urwen 05-17-2022 04:17 AM

No. That clue (and the Celebrimbor) clue is inspired by your own clue in the last password.

2 sounds ominous. Is it literal?


I suppose you can count Gollum as a hero, having ended Sauron's reign and all that.

Pervinca Took 05-20-2022 07:34 AM

Not completely sure what you mean by that. The answer is a fallen hero, though.

Oh! Sorry.

It isn't a hero who fell from grace.

Just someone who died heroically.

Urwen 05-20-2022 09:56 AM

Lowry for Lori, Lori+doln or something = Lorindol?

Pervinca Took 05-20-2022 10:38 AM

Lowry is the correct element, but Doln is wrong.

It's not an obvious or elvish-sounding hero, and it's only 'sounds like' Lowry.

I'd try some of the other clues first.

Urwen 06-06-2022 06:02 AM

4 is COMBE (COMB+E)
6 could be some variation of Sherwood or Shire?

Pervinca Took 06-07-2022 09:13 AM

Huinesoron 06-07-2022 09:59 AM

Oh! Is #8 cheat+wood - A = CHETWOOD?

Which might make the password "BREELAND"?

And that means #1 could just be the barley-man... er, BARLIMAN.

Indeed you do!

What's ETA, Galadriel? I only know it as 'estimated time of arrival.'

I've picked up the acronym from Werewolf games, and no one really ever explained what it stands for, I don't think, but by context I interpreted it as "edit to add". Like P.S. I guess in WW it's important to mark any changes that were made as an edit, so maybe that's how this particular combo evolved. I actually only learned that it also means "estimated time of arrival" a few years ago, and the first time I saw it used that way I was confused because what is there to add or to edit in a text message?

Straddle A Saddle In Staddle: The Limerick

There once was a hobbit from Staddle
Who attempted to straddle a saddle.
So he swaddled and swaggered,
And ladled and staggered -
In the end all his wits were quite addled.

Great limerick, Galadriel! :)

One to go. There's a term for three notes ... think three notes together, kind of like a chord ....

Galadriel55 06-08-2022 09:32 PM

Embarrassingly, I had to look this up - embarrassingly because I am supposed to remember something about music, but I have no recollection even of learning this term in the first place - but a three note chord is called a triad. Making the final answer ERIADOR.
