Gosh, we're really zipping through these now, aren't we?

I believe #3 & #6 are APPLE and RABBIT?

Pervinca Took 06-26-2017 11:07 PM

4. Taters

2. Eggnog

7. Isengard?

Pervinca all three are Super close. Two are just other versions of the words.

Galadriel55 06-27-2017 02:13 AM

Ah, thanks Pervinca!

Pervinca Took 06-27-2017 03:34 AM

Damn! I've pressed Edit intead of Quote AGAIN!

So, I first suggested Potatoes, Nog and Orthanc.

Then, after Morsul's feedback, I tried Taters, Eggnog and Isengard.

And very nice there were too, although Isengard was a bit chewy.

P.S. You're welcome, Galadriel. :)

Actually, I would re-edit Eggnog to Eggs, because no-one drinks or mentions Eggnog in the books, I think. (Unless it's consumed in The Father Christmas Letters).

Pervinca Took 06-27-2017 03:45 AM

Is it MEAT & DRINK ... the way food and drink are sometimes referred to in Middle-earth?

I think the one about the door and mead might be Nob.

Ooohhhh ... kingsfoil?

Pervinca Took 06-27-2017 03:48 AM

I think I know the other 2 as well, but will hold back for now.

1. Mushrooms - as in much room?

Morsul the Dark 06-27-2017 04:44 AM

Indeed

Pervinca Took 06-27-2017 06:12 AM

And hobbits eat DAINTIES to fill up the corners.

Was EGGS wrong? Is the tall tale to do with eggs-aggeration?

Morsul the Dark 06-27-2017 03:22 PM

Eggs is incorrect no eggs involved.

Dainties is correct will update

Pervinca Took 06-27-2017 11:07 PM

ENTS, with their ent-draughts that make you tall?

(Edited because at first I put *elves* (who make miruvor).

Either way
Over to you

Pervinca Took 06-28-2017 06:21 AM

Went! And there was me fixated on East and Eggnog. :D

You are all setting the bar very high. See if you like this one:

1. Slain warrior-guard gains note before meeting sanctified one. Now see him, clearly.
2. He’s a great laugh, however confused.
3. Being melodic, lazy spider starts bidding, starts spinning, then reveals his killer!
4. Desert old measure in confusion for a feisty girl.
5. Gloin, initially, but joins first person and others of his profession to mingle for one highborn.
6. Plosive divides utensil; dental plosive completes him.
7. Claudio and Hero’s trouble - though not much – still acquires the legacy of a wound. All are shaken before he is revealed.

P.S. I spelled 'Romestamo' wrong on my last password, so I will go back and adjust the clue. I had the second 'm' as an 'r.' Sorry about that.

Married to Celeborn, I guess you have to be! :D

I have now edited ROMESTAMO and its clue on the opening and closing posts of my last password. The in-between ones I have left, as penance for my idiocy. ;)

Is 1 Hamfast? Hama + F. (A note) + a s (ain) t ?

Pervinca Took 06-28-2017 03:22 PM

Indeed it is! There are already two A's from HAMA, so after putting in F (a note), just add ST, the abbreviation for 'saint.' (Which you did, pretty much).

Of course.. silly of me..one of those ones where I hit the right answer changing track and lost track.

Mithalwen 06-28-2017 03:55 PM

Is 3 Bilbo? I think his song was lazy LOB which scrambled with the first two letter of BIdding give the spider killer's name.

Not Olo (is there an Olo?), but the right method and thinking. It's 'a great laugh' in a slightly different sense.

'Gone without direction.' Took 'E' (east) from 'gone' to get 'nog,' because eggs are used to make the sweet drink 'eggnog' (I don't remember ent-draught being sweet, but maybe it does say so, or sweet here means good to drink?) The answers all seemed to be edible, and you had implied all 3 of my answers were close, so I thought it must be eggs, which are eaten in Middle-earth (Bilbo dreams of bacon and eggs). Not as significant in the stories as rabbits, apples or taters, but I thought maybe it was just hard to find a comestible starting with E. (I guess kingsfoil might be drunk as an 'infusion for headaches,' but I thought the afflicted person probably bathed the affected part of the head with it).

P.S. Have copied Morsul's way of bolding whole answer, because it looks good.

P.P.S. Well done both!

O for OTHO? ("Hoot" = slang for "laugh").

T for TOBOLD? (With "bowl" as the utensil).

And that is probably the only circumstance in which I would use the 'pipe' icon! (In fact, is there an explanation page for the Downs' icons anywhere?)

Correct answers, Nerwen, but TOBOLD does not come from bowl. It's TOOL for utensil, divided in the middle by a plosive (B), then finished with a dental plosive (D).

Anagram of 'hoot' is the correct thinking for 'Otho.'

Silly me! I was puzzled by your use of "divide", but I couldn't think of anything else that made sense at all.

Not sure how we lose the c, but AR + ACORN almost gives us ARAGORN (called Longshanks by Bill Ferny).

I used the elvish exclamation in one of my last clues (the Melian one), and I also looked at lots of Maiar as that was both the password and the theme.
