Can you say what the password and the theme are now?

Pervinca Took 06-25-2019 03:30 PM

Does FEDHIN mean hero, or something?

Is it First Age heroes?

Pervinca Took 06-25-2019 03:33 PM

"fedhin*

"adjective.*ally, friend, bound by agreement, bound by agreement, ally, friend, friend, ally"


Ah, ok.

Are they pairs of allies ... pairs bound by an agreement of friendship?

Not pairs, trios.

Urwen 06-25-2019 03:56 PM

I wanted to use Finrod and Beren in a password cos I had their awesome dynamic in mind for quite a while now, but no word fit, until I found Fedhin. :smokin:

Pervinca Took 06-25-2019 04:16 PM

Great idea!

Tell me who the trios are. I'm not as good as you on the First Age.

New password tomorrow. It's at work.

Urwen 06-25-2019 04:19 PM

Finrod+Beren+Edrahil, and Hurin+Huor+Turgon

Urwen 06-25-2019 04:27 PM

But.....are you always at work? You were at work when it was morning for me, and you're at work when it is evening for me, which is kinda weird, since most jobs have only one shift..... Is there a time when you're not at work?

Pervinca Took 06-25-2019 11:41 PM

No. I solved your password at home, but my two prepared passwords are on my laptop, and *that* is at work, in my cupboard. I take it in at the beginning of the week, and bring it home at the end. Because I need it at work but don't want to carry it home every day.

Pervinca Took 06-26-2019 02:03 AM

Here you are, then:
 
1. A dark fish for a hill? (Dark Elves).
2. Linger, wife of Abraham! Switch an exclamation, and take a turn about here! (Elendil)
3. Partition switches note and meanders. (Frodo).
4. A German baptism unit and a spy, note! How it all twists around here! (Tolkien).
5. Note boy returning here, (or show surprise to him, in Yorkshire!) (Frodo).
6. Disemvowelled red room in a mess around here! (Aragorn).
7. Leave him in singularly dire straits, when they all mingle here? (Boromir).
8. Sweetly old-fashioned tile broken here? (Dark Elves).
9. Rob thin person? No, place. Confused? (Frodo)
10. Place to shoot Carry On films, severally (Frodo). *
11. A bird changes its note here. (Bilbo & Frodo).
12. The first of November! Behold, heraldic fur! Scramble for it! (Dark Elves).
13. A dwarf in his rightful place, with his mother surrounding him? (Thrain).
14. Note quaint fruit with an unusual core, after an article here. (Pippin).

* Probably/possibly

The names in the brackets relate each clue to the theme. Ignore them for now. They will start to make sense when you have guessed a few of them.

[CLUE 1 HAS BEEN AMENDED]

Urwen 06-26-2019 03:43 AM

For 1, are we looking for a particular species of fish or just a synonym for fish?

Pervinca Took 06-26-2019 04:08 AM

A kind of fish.

Urwen 06-26-2019 04:18 AM

I believe tuna is a pretty dark fish, when not mixed with mayonnaise.

Is there a place called Thinbor?

No. You need synonyms.

One of the thin ones is right.
Mug is wrong.
Aros is wrong.

Urwen 06-27-2019 01:27 PM

Theme is the places unseen/unvisited by people in brackets.

Urwen 06-27-2019 01:57 PM

I looked, and nothing seems to fit both words.....
