#8: Fan + Kil(ler) = FANKIL, a servant of Melko.

#11: Just sounds like SAURON again, but could be CELEBRIMBOR to mix things up.

#nu15: could be Car + Cart + hoh = CARCHAROTH

Not Sauron, but the right character. Think more literally.

1. An article, a broken container, a delay, and a preposition come together for him.
2. A direction precedes a musical instrument for him.
3. Headless argot and a preposition form him.
4. A preposition, a verb, and two directions form them.
5. A holiday and headless throws form them.
6. They're ghosts of unlight.
7. Reversed chromium is within a confused Disney bear. There he is.
FANKIL: An admirer. A murderer, cut in half? That's him.
9. A bilabial nasal, a vowel and a Vala make him up.
10. A heated metal stick is warped. He is revealed.
11. He is a band creator.
12. An insect, a verb and a note spin in circles for him.
13. Centers are muddled and vowel-less. They appear.
14. Twisted sword handle meets little mother; a robot with two directions moves in circles; there they are.
CARCHAROTH: A medieval vehicle, a modern vehicle, to stop, are in a muddle for him.

2. L-organ.

Correct. But I have to ask, why not try guessing more than clue at a time, like Huey did just now?

I mean, I only guessed multiple because I could come up with multiple possible answers. That's the reward for being the first to respond. From now on it'll be one at a time unless I have a really good five minutes somewhere down the line.

Or none at a time, as now.

#7: Look for the - bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
And cleave ol' ORCOBAL right to his teeth!
I mean the - bare necessities
Those Gondolindrim recipies
For slaying any Orcs who give you grief!

Urwen, I have tried the others and couldn't solve them. I guessed Sauron/Celebrimbor, then deleted my post because Huey had answered correctly 2 minutes earlier. I don't know why his previous posts weren't showing when I posted that.

Can't get 9 without scrambling. Am I right?

Actually, you can. You can substitute the nasal and vowel bit for a solfeggio note and get the same result.

Tevildo's cook.

Password: SLAVES OF MORGOTH?

Tolkien Gateway helped me once I'd guessed some of the elements. I'm not that good at First Age stuff, though ... well, First Age villains, at any rate.

Urwen 06-21-2021 02:07 PM

Try using this page for the rest: http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Categ...ants_of_Melkor

It lists all of them, believe me.

Thuringwethil has HILT. But it isn't plural.

Maybe the answer is some kind of TROLLS, but I can't fit MA into a kind of troll, (or Thuringwethil), or anything else signifying a little mother.

It doesn't have to be plural...

Check that page again...

I believe Huey could guess the last one easily, though.

If you're really stuck, I can provide you with a small hint...

Pervinca Took 06-21-2021 04:37 PM

No other T's on the page except Tevildo.

Urwen 06-21-2021 04:40 PM

There is, but it's hidden. Let's just say some of the entries on that page, have other names, which you'll find with reading the remaining links on that page. One of those other names begins with T.

Urwen 06-21-2021 04:42 PM

Additional hint [only open if you're really stuck]: The answer is a group of people whose leader you're looking at in this very moment.

That was a very good password, Urwen. :)

1. Relief for flatulence? Mix it first, if you want to see her!
2. She mixes a spinning circle and a lair.
3. Number is slightly shaken, but does not apply for her.
4. Vend and eat, she says.
5. Madcap prince meets an old character, and she appears.
6. I am both objective and mirrored. And angered and confused. As she will attest.
7. Hautboys, note, mingle for her, losing nothing but gaining direction.
