HADROMES > MAEDHROS

MAEGLIN: A puzzle gains direction for him
EOWYN: A state abbreviation inside of a long period of time, for her
FARAMIR: Muddled distant reverse edge for him.
AREDHEL: Follow through, with a direction? She will not do this.
VANA: A vehicle, noted. She appears
FRODO: Muddle up his task to get his name.
IDRIL: Note Maltese money, returned. For her
TURIIN: Mix this compound for him
LALAITH: Greet the key for her
TAR MIRIEL: Rearrange a rodent containing lime for her
MAEDHROS: Mixed complex plant tissue, for him


And yes, he was my first favorite, and still is.

A botany lesson, indeed.

Have sent a couple of my passwords to my e-mail, but am not able to copy and paste them from there on my 'phone. So may have to retype them, or wait until I can get onto a laptop. Bear with me.

Here you go:
 
1. Laureate? Last of a score! Disturb her sonnet for a brave man.
2. Does he eat his veg? No! A deceiver swallows it for him! (Whole). (But not the deceiver).
3. Hes an elf of the twilight, blended and liquid.
4. No fear. Perturbed? Well, it sums him up, really.
5. Reveal, after much spin, a velar consonant and the man himself.
6. A donkey, a Shropshire town, and a perfect square! Mix them together, and whom do you see?
7. Hes a teacher in Gondolin, but hes suffered dental loss.

Urwen 05-08-2019 10:28 AM

3. Maeglin? (Elf of Twilight)

Pervinca Took 05-08-2019 10:37 AM

Nope.

William Cloud Hicklin 05-08-2019 10:40 AM

5: Arveleg (reveal + g)

Urwen 05-08-2019 10:44 AM

4. Feanor? (No fear, rearranged)

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:01 AM

Maybe the theme is descendants of Finwe?

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:02 AM

Names of Gondolin: Hidden City, Ondolinde, White City, Rock of the Music of Water.....

William Cloud Hicklin 05-08-2019 11:02 AM

7: Tutor- T = Tuor

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:03 AM

7. Tuor (Tutor-T)

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:05 AM

2. Beren (Because Carcharoth swallowed his hand?)

Pervinca Took 05-08-2019 11:27 AM

1. Laureate? Last of a score! Disturb her sonnet for a brave man.
2. Does he eat his veg? No! A deceiver swallows it for him! (Whole). (But not the deceiver).
3. He’s an elf of the twilight, blended and liquid.
FEANOR: No fear. Perturbed? Well, it sums him up, really.
ARVELEG: Reveal, after much spin, a velar consonant – and the man himself.
6. A donkey, a Shropshire town, and a perfect square! Mix them together, and whom do you see?
TUOR: He’s a teacher in Gondolin, but he’s suffered dental loss.

No to Beren. Carcharoth's act was not a vegan one!

No to your theme suggestion.

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:36 AM

I tried solving 1, but I cannot find anything tolkien within 'NOBELE' and 'HERSONNET' anagrams......

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:38 AM

2. Celebrimbor? (Celeri sounds like Celery)

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:41 AM

And maybe #1 is Beren.....Because N O B E L E comes close and her sonnet alludes to Luthien's song.

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:43 AM

Or 2 could be Celegorm, because he was called 'Celery' in Terrible Dad Feanor comics. :smokin:

It also contains 'CELE' which sounds like 'KALE'.

Pervinca Took 05-08-2019 11:46 AM

No.

Start with 'Laureate.' What is a Laureate? Or a Poet Laureate, to be more precise?

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:51 AM

It says it's an officially appointed poet, or a bard

Urwen 05-08-2019 11:54 AM

You missed these, btw.

There is a character Bard as well......

No I didn't. 'No' applied to those too.

Not Bard.

Start in the 'real' world for the Laureate clue.

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:08 PM

Major poet is a synonym for Laureate in the real world.

Pervinca Took 05-08-2019 12:10 PM

So ... find one!

However, look first at what Poet Laureate means in the UK.

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:11 PM

Albertino Mussato, Francesco Petrarca and Bernard Andr were the first appointed ones.

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:14 PM

In the UK they ere called 'minstrels' and 'versifiers', and Shakespeare comes to mind.

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:15 PM

It's an office appointed by the monarch or the Prime Minister.

Pervinca Took 05-08-2019 12:17 PM

Yes. And it's a British Poet Laureate you need.

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:22 PM

Alfred Tennyson?

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:25 PM

Who wrote Lady of Shallot (her sonnet) clue.

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:27 PM

And the main character of that poem suffers from a curse, just like Turin did.

Pervinca Took 05-08-2019 12:36 PM

Was Tennyson a she? And is 'The Lady of Shallot' a sonnet? ;)

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:45 PM

Found it

1. Huor, from Hour.

:D

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:46 PM

In which case, the password is Hamfast, and the theme is fathers and sons.

Pervinca Took 05-08-2019 12:52 PM

HUOR: Laureate? Last of a score! Disturb her sonnet for a brave man.
A: Does he eat his veg? No! A deceiver swallows it for him! (Whole). (But not the deceiver).
M: He’s an elf of the twilight, blended and liquid.
FEANOR: No fear. Perturbed? Well, it sums him up, really.
ARVELEG: Reveal, after much spin, a velar consonant – and the man himself.
S: A donkey, a Shropshire town, and a perfect square! Mix them together, and whom do you see?
TUOR: He’s a teacher in Gondolin, but he’s suffered dental loss.

THEME: FATHERS & SONS

There have been 20 British Poet Laureates, (a score).

The current one, and the first ever female one, is Carol Ann Duffy.


'HOUR' by CAROL ANN DUFFY


Love’s time’s beggar, but even a single hour,

bright as a dropped coin, makes love rich.

We find an hour together, spend it not on flowers

or wine, but the whole of the summer sky and a grass ditch.


For thousands of seconds we kiss; your hair

like treasure on the ground; the Midas light

turning your limbs to gold. Time slows, for here

we are millionaires, backhanding the night


so nothing dark will end our shining hour,

no jewel hold a candle to the cuckoo spit

hung from the blade of grass at your ear,

no chandelier or spotlight see you better lit


than here. Now. Time hates love, wants love poor,

but love spins gold, gold, gold from straw.

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:53 PM

Maedhros, Maglor, Curufin, Amrod, Amras, Caranthir.

Unless Caranthir is synonymous with carrot or Amras is an anagram of sarma, I don't see how any of them ate a veggie.

Or Carcharoth himself, as his name contains carrot, and he swallows stuff.

Urwen 05-08-2019 12:58 PM

And since there are no Sons of Feanor whose names begin with S, that leaves the A clue and M clue. And since none of their names contain vegetable, it has to be the M clue. And 'twilight' is 'LOME' or 'LOM', derived from LOMION.

MAGLOR contains LOM.

Urwen 05-08-2019 01:00 PM

And the S clue is SAMWISE, Hamfast's son, whose initial is S.
