Could I get some hints now?

Pervinca Took 06-23-2019 02:39 PM

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.
ARATHORN: 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.
DEAGOL: See a Dark Elf gallivant around for him!
ELENDUR: See him suffer lashes, initially, then chaos.
9. Policemen’s chorus loses order and sailor for him.
ROMENDACIL: 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.

THEME: UNTIMELY DEATHS

9. Look for a chorus sung by policemen in a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta. Or rather, an expression repeated a lot in a chorus they sing.

5. Try some vegetables with short names.

Urwen 06-23-2019 03:14 PM

Policeman's lot is not a happy one? Or just Policeman's lot?

Not that song. There's another song they sing. Same operetta, though.

Urwen 06-23-2019 04:39 PM

Can't find any other song. :/

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 02:45 AM

Ah ... apologies.

Also in ' The Pirates Of Penzance' is a song called 'When The Foeman Bares His Steel.'

The 'words' TARAN TARA are sung after nearly every line and also repeatedly as a chorus. I thought they would appear as part of the lyrics when the lyrics appear typed up, but (at least, in the first place I found them, just now) they don't.

Well, if there was another N, removing TAR (=sailor) would give ANNATAR. Who I suppose can be said to have died untimely, since he wasn't supposed to die at all.

hS

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 03:31 AM

He didn't absolutely, completely die, though, did he? Although he was reduced to a sort of impotent shadow.

Big clue: one of his brothers has already been guessed.

Urwen 06-24-2019 11:54 AM

9. Aratan?

That's him!

Urwen 06-24-2019 12:59 PM

I reckon that 1 and 12 are the hardest, so some hints for those?

Urwen 06-24-2019 01:01 PM

The second word of the password is DEARLY, but cannot piece together the first.

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 02:51 PM

It doesn't end in 'dearly.'

12. Look up British 70's serials ... one has a middle word that is echoed in the clue.

It's not Poldark (only one word).

Not 'The Forsyte Saga' (think that might be late sixties anyway).

Not 'Upstairs Downstairs' (no middle word!)

I think it was played in the daytime, not the evening.

Urwen 06-24-2019 03:06 PM

Any of these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catego...evision_series

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 03:07 PM

Not my job to look through a list.

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 03:09 PM

Besides, most if not all of those aren't even serials!

Not series. SERIALS. DRAMA SERIALS.

Urwen 06-24-2019 03:11 PM

The Cedar Tree? Cede sounds a bit like Cedar, and it is fragrant.

Mithalwen 06-24-2019 03:34 PM

Forsyte Saga was late sixties-the original anyway. Was in black and white! My mum watched the Cedar tree when I was very young. It was an afternoon thing. Can’t solve clue though.

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 04:03 PM

You start with THE CEDAR TREE. Then you have to 'cede' the most fragrant word of it, and replace it with one that means the same as a bun fight.

Urwen 06-24-2019 04:24 PM

12. The Party Tree?

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 04:37 PM

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.

ARATHORN: A wilder roar than that will bring him.

THE PARTY TREE: With seven pushbacks, it sounds like a seventies serial might cede a fragrant one for a bun fight.

THEME: UNTIMELY DEATHS

And seven pushbacks would result in the Y lining up with the other red letters.

(I pinched the term 'pushbacks' from a game show called 'The Chase.')

Urwen 06-24-2019 04:39 PM

But you said that the second word isn't DEARLY.....:eek:

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 04:40 PM

It isn't. :D

Urwen 06-24-2019 04:41 PM

Can I finally get a hint for #1?

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 04:43 PM

All right.

He's an elf.

Put some elements together and see what you come up with.

Urwen 06-24-2019 04:51 PM

Let's see


Celebrimbor? (Bree+Ori+MC+L)

Urwen 06-24-2019 04:52 PM

And he fits with the password too, which is CROAKED EARLY

Pervinca Took 06-24-2019 05:25 PM

CELEBRIMBOR: 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.
ARATHORN: A wilder roar than that will bring him.
K: Vegetable changes vowels and is blended for him.
ELENWE: It takes three paths, a sheep, and great unrest to find her.
DEAGOL: See a Dark Elf gallivant around for him!
ELENDUR: See him suffer lashes, initially, then chaos.
ARATAN: Policemen’s chorus loses order and sailor for him.
ROMENDACIL: How the toga’d ones were toga’d, he shows, if chaotically.

THE PARTY TREE: With seven pushbacks, it sounds like a seventies serial might cede a fragrant one for a bun fight.

THEME: UNTIMELY DEATHS

(They all 'croaked early' or before their time).


Now ... how about the remaining clue? ;)

P.S. Right end result, if not quite the right method. Yours only provides one B!

It's BREE + BORIN - N + IMC. :)

Urwen 06-25-2019 01:43 AM

When kale changes vowels, we get Kili. What a suprise!

Urwen 06-25-2019 03:38 AM

P.S: Try solving my riddle?

Actually, that gives us two Is, and there is only one in Celebrimbor.

Pervinca Took 06-25-2019 04:18 AM

Oh yes. Well, an MC, then. And I should have put 'changes path,' because we need an L.

The vegetable I had in mind was LEEK. BLENDED is an anagram indicator. Kale doesn't need one

Over to Urwen!

Urwen 06-25-2019 04:25 AM

I'll post one later today.


Also, try solving my riddle, please?

I'm at work, Urwen! Later.

Urwen 06-25-2019 11:25 AM

Here's a new one, hope you enjoy it. Also, I seem to be running out of unused themes......

1. A befuddled dwarf amid two notes reveals him.
2. A dwarf changes vowels for him.
3. Sturdy within untruth? It returns for him.
4. Greek 17th, in a spin, receives the vowel for him.
5. A german note precedes destruction in a spin for him.
6. He sounds like you're gone after tea.

Pervinca Took 06-25-2019 12:02 PM

3. EORL, from ROLE.

Urwen 06-25-2019 12:11 PM

Actually, this password lacks an important letter.....

Urwen 06-25-2019 12:18 PM

This has been fixed, but I had to alter two of the clues for this.
