Teacher?

Pervinca Took 12-07-2019 12:02 PM

Carried forward from the last page ..
 
TYRN GORTHAD: Thank you, nurse!í (American text speak). Here, a twisting cave leads to the beginning of the underworld.
H: Nimble Field Marshal gains direction even as all becomes confused here.
ERESTOR: See him before the decay returns; a sibilant is swallowed.

F: Ask Debussy when it sounds like he sings. It might be after noon.
ERIADOR: Thingolís land is transformed into another, as a fricative element gives way to hesitation in the general turmoil.
LINDIR: Is he a lover of confectionery, with just one small exception?
LEMBAS: Food guilt? Itís confusing when someone lays that on you.
ODO PROUDFOOT: His table manners leave much to be desired.
WITHYWINDLE: Shrivel without hesitation, here in France? Decline, after first loss. But on it flows.
SILVERLODE: Fifty pence pieces can really weigh your pockets down, I hear! That considered, on it runs.
HOBBITON: Here youíll find a stove with tooth marks in it, they say!
IMLADRIS: Girl traps boy here. Mother too, initially, and first.
PARTH GALEN: Here find oriental bread, lose two articles, and meet a physician.

OLD WINYARDS: Flatulent and sibilant childrenís author? (Forget his surname). It's confusing, but perhaps heís sampled this?
FANUIDHOL: Spanish greeting for Balinís directionless dad; despite the confusion, itís not that far from where his son lies.

T: Charlatan of a professor Ė looks peaky after much confusion!
HALFAST: Heís semi-sedentary, with very minimal disturbance.
EVERARD (TOOK): An eternally tough dancer, we hear.

RAUROS: Dark Lord changes direction as he tumbles here.
I DRANN: What Drogo might have yelled here, in 2980, had he been a Cockney?
NOB: Does he really ban the use of a certain plosive?
GILDOR: To a linguistís mind, he seems almost to specialise in golden tautology.

No. A short word specifically used for a professor or academic.

Urwen 12-07-2019 12:15 PM

Prof? Or chair?

Pervinca Took 12-07-2019 12:16 PM

No. I'm sure you'll have seen it if you've ever read any books about Tolkien.

Urwen 12-07-2019 12:17 PM

Chair?

Pervinca Took 12-07-2019 01:21 PM

No.

The same word is used for a Mafia chief.

Urwen 12-07-2019 01:56 PM

Don?

Pervinca Took 12-07-2019 02:04 PM

That's the one.

Urwen 12-07-2019 03:58 PM

Is the clue referring to a character, on an object, or something else?

Pervinca Took 12-07-2019 04:11 PM

The straight part of the clue is in the second half.

Urwen 12-07-2019 04:15 PM

Oh.

Urwen 12-07-2019 04:25 PM

So it's a peak?

Pervinca Took 12-07-2019 04:35 PM

Yep.

Urwen 12-07-2019 05:07 PM

So Redhorn and Fanuidhol have 'don' in their names....

Huinesoron 12-08-2019 05:05 AM

How about TOL BRANDIR? Don + ...well, I don't know, but it does include 'don' and start with T.

hS

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 07:37 AM

None of those.

What sort of a don would it be who was a charlatan? Who was only *pretending* to be a don?

It would be a ___________ don.

For the F clue, the answer is IN the title of the piece of music by Debussy that Huinesoron mentioned/found.

Urwen 12-08-2019 07:39 AM

False? Fake?

Urwen 12-08-2019 07:44 AM

And the F clue could be Fundin (Faune D'un)

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 07:45 AM

No to both.

But you're right with 'Faune' ...

The big giveaway is that 'he sings.' :D

Urwen 12-08-2019 07:50 AM

Can't find a synonym for charlatan with T in it.

Urwen 12-08-2019 07:54 AM

Wait a minute.....your favorite character sings and his name begins with F.....

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 07:57 AM

Ah, he does!

But he's not the answer.

The answer is someone probably known *first and foremost* for singing.

It's just a very rare name for him.

Find a list of named mountain peaks and work backwards. Wikipedia should have one.

Urwen 12-08-2019 08:02 AM

It only has a list of mountains, not mountain peaks specifically.

Urwen 12-08-2019 08:04 AM

And Forn for F.

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 08:10 AM

TYRN GORTHAD: Thank you, nurse!’ (American text speak). Here, a twisting cave leads to the beginning of the underworld.
H: Nimble Field Marshal gains direction even as all becomes confused here.
ERESTOR: See him before the decay returns; a sibilant is swallowed.

FORN: Ask Debussy when it sounds like he sings. It might be after noon.

FORN indeed. A rare name for Tom Bombadil.

Only H and T left.

EDIT: I've just realised that Huinesoron was *incredibly close* with Tol Brandir.

Still relevant.

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 08:28 AM

Well, so is the clue in my EDIT above.

Urwen 12-08-2019 08:30 AM

So Amon Hen or Amon Lhaw? None of them begins with T.


Tol Brandir is also called Tindrock, but once you remove don from that, the rest doesn't form any coherent word.

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 08:32 AM

Of course it does.

It's an anagram of TRICK DON.

Urwen 12-08-2019 08:34 AM

Now H: Hitler?

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 08:36 AM

No.

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 08:37 AM

Try an earlier war.

Urwen 12-08-2019 08:39 AM

First World War, then?

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 08:42 AM

Yes.

Urwen 12-08-2019 08:44 AM

Hindenburg?

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 09:58 AM

Wrong country.

Urwen 12-08-2019 10:10 AM

Not from UK?

Pervinca Took 12-08-2019 11:25 AM

Yes, UK.
