The password has a connection with all the answers, and I don't recall Amarie/Androg or Amarie/Maeglin having any connection.

Nerwen 05-22-2019 08:43 AM

Well, I don't recall Maeglin, FŽanor and Androg having much in common either. I wonder what it can be..?

Something that I discovered while re-reading the book.

Nerwen 05-22-2019 09:12 AM

All three got put under deadly curses- is it that?

Urwen 05-22-2019 09:19 AM

Yea, so they were, yet there are more who were.

Urwen 05-22-2019 09:23 AM

1. Moody, with a direction? In confusion, he is revealed
MAEGLIN: He played one in endless queue (mixed up), and he lost it.
ANDROG: Rearrange the mythical monster for him
FEANOR: In the front, with direction? Mix it up for the fiery one
5. Initially, he is taking secretion, without end
6. Elemental destruction? Spin it for him.

THEME: CURSED INDIVIDUALS

The solution to #1 is a bit of a stretch, but you'll understand my reasoning once this is solved.

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 09:35 AM

5. Turin was cursed.

I suppose it could be the initial of 'taking' that you're after.

Urwen 05-22-2019 09:38 AM

That's the one
 
1. Moody, with a direction? In confusion, he is revealed
MAEGLIN: He played one in endless queue (mixed up), and he lost it.
ANDROG: Rearrange the mythical monster for him
FEANOR: In the front, with direction? Mix it up for the fiery one
TURIN: Initially, he is taking secretion, without end
6. Elemental destruction? Spin it for him.

THEME: CURSED INDIVIDUALS

And that's where the password comes in. Think his aliases, and you'll find it.

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 09:48 AM

UMARTH, ill fate?

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 09:50 AM

And HURIN for 6 - H(ydrogen) + RUIN.

Urwen 05-22-2019 09:50 AM

Yeah
 
U: Moody, with a direction? In confusion, he is revealed
MAEGLIN: He played one in endless queue (mixed up), and he lost it.
ANDROG: Rearrange the mythical monster for him
FEANOR: In the front, with direction? Mix it up for the fiery one
TURIN :Initially, he is taking secretion, without end
HURIN: Elemental destruction? Spin it for him.

Urwen 05-22-2019 09:52 AM

The last one was included because of his epithet (and because I needed someone with an initial U. :p)

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 10:15 AM

Oh ... I was thinking GOLLUM ...GLUM + L, but leaving an O unaccounted for.

Nope, he had no epithets which implied he was cursed.

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 12:54 PM

ULDOR the Accursed.

DOUR for moody, plus L.

Urwen 05-22-2019 12:57 PM

Here comes the solve
 
Did you like it? I tried to make it easier this time....

ULDOR: Moody, with a direction? In confusion, he is revealed
MAEGLIN: He played one in endless queue (mixed up), and he lost it.
ANDROG: Rearrange the mythical monster for him
FEANOR: In the front, with direction? Mix it up for the fiery one
TURIN :Initially, he is taking secretion, without end
HURIN: Elemental destruction? Spin it for him.

THEME: CURSED INDIVIDUALS

Over to you.

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 12:59 PM

I did like it, very much. It had an original theme, and they are getting increasingly difficult to find.

You're a dab hand at passwords now!

Urwen 05-22-2019 01:02 PM

I mostly use anagram maker these days, which is why some clues are more difficult than others. Also, technically, Uldor doesn't fit with the theme.

Urwen 05-22-2019 01:06 PM

Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing what you'll come up with next.

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 01:25 PM

Uldor is fine. Who were the others cursed by, by the way? Turin I guess was cursed by Glaurung.

Hope you enjoy this one:

1. She's a wheel known (and used) by typists in the recent past.
2. Metal Indian dish rotates to reveal her.
3. Add note to the man (a singer, indeed!) - all for her.
4. An adder may also be a setter! But shake it to see. *
5. She tangles a cloth.
6. Wizard with sparkle, but confusingly, it's not a him, but a her!
7. Article about an actor's part, or is it the other way round? Work it out. For her.

* Don't try this at home. Or outside. Or anywhere else!

Urwen 05-22-2019 01:30 PM

Answer to your question: Mim cursed Androg, Hurin and Turin were cursed by Morgoth, along with Morwen and Nienor (and possibly everyone who views any of them in positive light, as the deaths of Gwindor, Finduilas, Beleg, Orodreth, and Brandir prove). Maeglin was cursed by his father. And Feanor, along with his entire house, was cursed by Mandos.

Yes. Or rather, ROLE around AN. ;)

No to the theme you suggested, though.

Singer could be a bard, or maybe not......

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 02:18 PM

That's pretty broad. Define 'bard.'

Urwen 05-22-2019 02:19 PM

Singer in medieval times.

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 02:20 PM

It's a singer, but not a mediaeval one.

Urwen 05-22-2019 02:23 PM

Modern one, then?

Urwen 05-22-2019 02:24 PM

Is it a famous singer? Because there are many of those, and there are few synonyms for singer which contain the letter needed.

Urwen 05-22-2019 02:38 PM

5. Niniel (Linen+I)

Pervinca Took 05-22-2019 02:42 PM

It is. I mean, in the sense of not Elizabethan or something. :D (Although in literature, that's Early Modern). ;) But he's been around a long time. I saw him perform in the late 80's, and he wasn't young then.
