1. Note, more lowly he sounds.
2. Befuddled elephant sings differently for him.
EVENSTAR: Events a royal initially disturbs, ever so slightly, reveal her.
SHARKEY: Jaws's unsung spying organ? Not just a hungry predator, though. Actually evil.
5. Send the remainder back! Surround the pen fluid! Adjust very slightly for him.
6. Elver's parent sings at this time, although a little out of sync, for her.
7. He joins Elizabeth Windsor, once one jumps out to the front.

For 6....


EEL - E + NOW?

EEL is right, but not E (wrong note) or now (wrong time expression).

Urwen 07-20-2019 06:12 AM

Elenwe (EEL+WHEN-H)


Though then it should have said 'German note'.

Urwen 07-20-2019 06:13 AM

Password: Epesses?

E: Note, more lowly he sounds.
P: Befuddled elephant sings differently for him.
EVENSTAR: Events a royal initially disturbs, ever so slightly, reveal her.
SHARKEY: Jaws's unsung spying organ? Not just a hungry predator, though. Actually evil.
S: Send the remainder back! Surround the pen fluid! Adjust very slightly for him.
E: Elver's parent sings at this time, although a little out of sync, for her.
S: He joins Elizabeth Windsor, once one jumps out to the front.

No to Elenwe, though. (Also no proof/indication that Elenwe is an epesse, AFAIK).

Urwen 07-20-2019 12:08 PM

Eledhwen (EEL+D+WHEN)

Urwen 07-20-2019 12:17 PM

1. Elessar (E+LESSER, or A+LESSER)

Urwen 07-20-2019 12:20 PM

And 5 is Stinker, where there is INK surrounded by STER, which is almost REST backwards.

'He sounds' covers the altered spelling.

Urwen 07-20-2019 01:56 PM

Now, I am struggling with those last two.

Pervinca Took 07-20-2019 07:22 PM

The P clue is pretty easy.

Urwen 07-21-2019 12:28 AM

So we don't need synonyms, we just rearrange ELEPHANT with a different note?

That is correct.

Urwen 07-21-2019 08:26 AM

It's not PANTHAEL again, is it?

Urwen 07-21-2019 08:28 AM

Elephant - E + A

Urwen 07-21-2019 08:32 AM

As for the last one, I found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince...e_of_Edinburgh

Urwen 07-21-2019 08:33 AM

But that doesn't have an S in it.

Urwen 07-21-2019 08:35 AM

If it is assumed that S is not the first letter, we have 'WISE'.


Wait.....

ELESSAR: Note, more lowly he sounds.
PANTHAEL: Befuddled elephant sings differently for him.

Elizabeth Windsor is indeed Queen Elizabeth II, but if you want to know how she comes into the clue, find a picture of a British post box on Google Images.

Urwen 07-21-2019 10:43 AM

You mean this:
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/GWIAA...64C/s-l300.jpg

Pervinca Took 07-21-2019 02:16 PM

That's the idea.

Urwen 07-21-2019 02:26 PM

It only says ER.

Pervinca Took 07-21-2019 02:37 PM

Well, maybe that's what you need!

It stands for 'Elizabeth Regina.'

It means it was put there during Elizabeth's reign. The post over here is called the Royal Mail, and officially owned by the Queen, I think.

There are a few post boxes with GR on them, put there in King George's reign.

Urwen 07-21-2019 03:46 PM

I still don't see anything with an initial S.....

You have already *almost* guessed it. ;)

Urwen 07-22-2019 06:40 AM

When?

Pervinca Took 07-22-2019 08:42 AM

When you correctly guessed one of the others.

Urwen 07-22-2019 09:07 AM

Slinker? Has ER as the last two letters.

And LINKS for joins, and the S (one letter) jumps out to the front.

ELESSAR: Note, more lowly he sounds.
PANTHAEL: Befuddled elephant sings differently for him.

Over to you!

Urwen 07-22-2019 01:16 PM

Here's the next one:


1. She is made of three elements in disarray.
2. In confusion, praise a dwarf, for him.
3. Endless element in turmoil, inside a ruse. See him!
4. Adhesive, linger! Hear it for her.
5. An unsung cry returns for him.
6. Diminish an artificial sweetener for him (with slight adjustment).
7. A confused Rohirric warrior gains direction, for him.
8. Chaotically, a small herb reveals her.
9. He is made of a turbulence and a bird.

Pervinca Took 07-22-2019 01:52 PM

7. Eorl + S = Elros?

Urwen 07-22-2019 02:11 PM

Nope.

Urwen 07-22-2019 02:17 PM

Also, can you make that riddle now?

Pervinca Took 07-23-2019 10:11 AM

Done - and just guessed by Huinesoron, I'm afraid.

Pervinca Took 07-24-2019 12:52 AM

1. Re No La

Elanor?

Urwen 07-24-2019 02:34 AM

Nope.

Huinesoron 07-24-2019 02:42 AM

BELETH - Be + Tl + He
HALETH - He + Th + La
MELIAN - Am + Ne + Li
NIENNA - Ni + Ne + Na
NINIEL - Ni + Ne + Li
NIENOR - Ni + Re + No

There's probably others.
