Gad?

Urwen 06-23-2019 04:50 AM

Also, I don't know what to make of #1 either, and do you have time to make a new riddle for riddle game?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 05:13 AM

1. A little town, a dwarf, a lost path and one Master of Ceremonies combine – however tumultuously – for him.
RIAN: She’s like a country in turmoil.
ORI: He confuses the French king.
4. A wilder roar than that will bring him.
5. Vegetable changes vowels and is blended for him.
ELENWE: 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.
LAURELIN: 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.

GAD is correct, and you have the other element.

Has hS said it's my turn yet? I thought he wanted all the seven rivers.

Leave 1 for now. There are easier ones to solve.

Urwen 06-23-2019 05:26 AM

Except there is no character name comprised solely of Gad + Eol, or at least Tolkien gateway shows none.

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 05:44 AM

Oh yes there is.

Get out a spoon and stir it.

Urwen 06-23-2019 06:04 AM

Oh, I see. Deagol?

Urwen 06-23-2019 06:07 AM

Suffer lashes initially = SL

You only need one of those initials, Urwen.

Leave 1 for now. There are easier ones to solve.

Urwen 06-23-2019 07:28 AM

So it must be L.

Urwen 06-23-2019 07:30 AM

Is it deceased people/things? If so, 12 must be Telperion.

Yes, more or less, but 12 isn't Telperion.

Yes, L is the right initial.

Urwen 06-23-2019 07:45 AM

L+Writhe, L+Ail, L+Get, L+Hurt, L+Undergo, L+Ache?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 07:49 AM

Only undergo, out of those, is really a synonym of suffer.

And not the right one, unfortunately.

This link says otherwise: https://www.thesaurus.com/browse/suffer


Maybe L+Bear, then?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 07:55 AM

Well, the link is wrong.

'Bear' is closer.

Urwen 06-23-2019 08:23 AM

Endure?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 08:23 AM

The website you are using gives related words, or words in the same semantic field. They are often the wrong part of speech to be a synonym.

Or, for instance, to 'writhe' is something you might *do* if you were suffering, but it doesn't *mean* to suffer.

I have tried that website before, but for the reasons above I find it far better to type the word into Google, add the word 'synonyms,' and press 'Enter.'

Correct!

Urwen 06-23-2019 08:27 AM

There is no character named Lendure......

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 08:29 AM

No, there isn't.

You are ignoring an essential word of the clue.

Urwen 06-23-2019 08:29 AM

Chaos means anagram, no?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 08:30 AM

Of course!

Urwen 06-23-2019 08:42 AM

Ha!
 
Elendur (Endure + L)

12. With seven pushbacks, it sounds like a seventies serial might cede a fragrant one for a bun fight.

Urwen 06-23-2019 09:52 AM

Which ones should I tackle next?

I think 4 is quite easy.

And 10 is one I've used before, with a similar clue, if you want to use the 'Search' function again.

Urwen 06-23-2019 10:16 AM

The 'clad in Rome' thing for Romendacil?

Urwen 06-23-2019 10:17 AM

and for 4, is a synonym of 'roar' what is needed?

No. Look for an anagram indicator.

Urwen 06-23-2019 10:29 AM

Wilder is an anagram indicator?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 10:32 AM

Yes.

Urwen 06-23-2019 10:44 AM

But you said we don't need a synonym for 'roar' either.

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 11:38 AM

You don't.

Urwen 06-23-2019 11:39 AM

So it's something like Rora, or Orar, or Aror......

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 11:40 AM

Not enough letters.

Urwen 06-23-2019 11:45 AM

There are only roar and an anagram indicator in a clue.....if there are more clues, I don't get the meaning of those.

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 11:57 AM

Try including the word after 'roar.'

Urwen 06-23-2019 12:40 PM

4. Arathorn (ROAR+THAN)
