I think I have it.

Urwen 12-22-2019 10:54 AM

I think there is something obvious there that I can't see.....

Yes, that's the bit you need.

Two words of that form the anagram.

Carried forward from the last page ..
 
TOL ERESSEA: Here, a biblical fellow returns, to meet an archaic palindrome and a sibilant ocean.
HALBARAD: Half German article and liquid marketing. For him.
ERECH: Place of mirth ... but it's not unmixed.

RADBUG: Brag - dubiously, at first, you hear - before chaos ensues to expose him.
EAGLES: Seasoned sailors have more than one of these. But be that as it may, it's mangled to reveal these majestic creatures!
TEARS: Not all of these are evil.
UMBAR: Does one hesitate to suggest a pub here?
ROSE: She's inflamed - and troubled.
N: One must dress, groom, prepare? - put nails in order, certainly - for them.

OSGILIATH: Is David's foe around here?
FORLONG: Beat a Weasley? He's there - but discombobulated.

TOOKS: Group of sheaves slightly disturbed by - or rather for - the first ones to kill.
HAVENS: They're beardless and bewildered.
ELANOR: A role reversed; an article swallowed; a girl revealed.

KNIGHTS: Merry and Pippin, in white satin? (For thus it sounds, in song).
IORLAS: A painter's choice - Rembrandt's, initially - and Goya's, finally - mingles to reveal him.
NAZGUL: See this fearsome thing return, endlessly crazy, to endlessly deceive.
GILDOR: Aged apparatus collapses to reveal him.

I keep coming back to NARSILION (NAILS + IN + OR)

Pervinca Took 12-22-2019 03:44 PM

No.

What do you think is the anagram indicator?

Urwen 12-22-2019 04:57 PM

order.

Pervinca Took 12-22-2019 07:49 PM

In order.

Urwen 12-23-2019 03:59 AM

There is no entry anywhere online which is an anagram of PUT NAILS, though.

Pervinca Took 12-23-2019 04:11 AM

There are anagram solvers online. I'm pretty sure you'll find one if you feed that phrase into one of them.

Urwen 12-23-2019 04:16 AM

It only gives me NUPTIALS, and there are indeed three sets of those in ROTK (well, four if you count Eomer and Lothiriel) but nuptials isn't a Tolkien word.

Who said they all have to be Tolkien words? Nuptials/weddings feature in Tolkien's *story.* I like to make things a little different sometimes. We've had passwords about food and drink in the books, and Tolkien didn't invent tea and coffee! And the same goes for 'Tears,' (clue 6).

I'm pretty sure Eomer and Lothiriel's wedding is only in the Appendices, along with Merry's and Pippin's.

Over to you! :)

I think the password is "Something(s) of Middle-earth.'

'Minions,' perhaps? But are these characters really minions?

Pervinca Took 12-24-2019 06:01 AM

Could 14 be LONI? Loki would need to lose its K, though.

Urwen 12-24-2019 06:22 AM

Nope. I used this character in a password once before.

Urwen 12-24-2019 06:23 AM

And you're close with the password. Think about your last three passwords. ;)

Ist H.

Huan? (A Hun?)

Attila's father's name begins with M. That's why I guessed 'Minions' at first.

Urwen 12-24-2019 07:52 AM

Not an answer to that. :D

Pervinca Took 12-24-2019 02:31 PM

Is the second H HUAN, because JUAN is a frequently occurring name in Spain, and sounds the same?

Well, I didn't know many of the words you used either, so it's only fair.

Pervinca Took 12-25-2019 12:43 PM

Well, of course. We learn stuff from this thread! :)

Is mirly a word used in America? I just found a very few male characters with names starting in Y and then tried scrambling them.
