Lang strand is close but not correct. It is close it has to do with water and is something both directly deal with in fotr.

Elmo. As in St Elmo’s Fire then replace the beginning with IR for IR Baboon

1. Plymouth settler of a middling shade but a more common name.
2. Informally myself won’t then again myself seeing the back of a horse man. That’s one way to get over water.
3. A long trek for a soldier followed by the first American note. Akin to Washington or Jefferson.
4. Stretched but replacing the first of orange with the first of apple. With result of monsoons.
5. Take a puppet known for fire but the beginning is seen as the Weasel ‘s baboon foe. This should bring a vision of the answer.

1. GandalF
2. Iant IauR
3. MarchO
4. LangflooD
5. IrmO

I thought Elmo, but couldn't make out the fire bit.

It's somewhere near Moria, I guess. Where the bad weather drives them indoors.

Pervinca Took 08-24-2019 06:59 AM

No it isn't. It's LORINAND, I think, another name for Lothlorien.

Morsul the Dark 08-24-2019 07:08 AM

Lang is the correct start
The monsoons bit would lead to the second half of the word. It’s an alternative name to something.

Pervinca Took 08-24-2019 12:13 PM

I had to look this one up, but apparently LANGFLOOD was a name used for the Anduin by the ancestors of the Rohirrim, and a monsoon is/can cause a flood.

Morsul the Dark 08-24-2019 12:15 PM

So it is you may proceed :smokin:

Pervinca Took 08-24-2019 03:52 PM

Thanks, Morsul! Good puzzle.

I have racked my brains to think of a new idea, and have just succeeded.

You'll have to wait for the clues, though. I'll write them tomorrow.

Pervinca Took 08-25-2019 03:47 AM

1. A good guy finds his way, then stumbles, then finally arrives.
2. Turn around, Midge! Go on - for him!
3. Tartan article mingles for him.
4. Three breakfast items, dental loss, nasal gain. Mix it up for him.
5. Stop, dwarf! Dance for him!
6. Scarlett back home? Sound the brass for him!
7. Cattle? Well, he's lowing with chaos, sans direction.
8. A melancholy raven is further troubled for him.

Morsul the Dark 08-25-2019 12:40 PM

6. Redhorn? Scarlet red back home might be like back to basics or primary color so red. The Horn is a a brass instrument (I think)

Pervinca Took 08-25-2019 12:57 PM

Horn is correct, but note the spelling of Scarlett.

Morsul the Dark 08-25-2019 07:00 PM

6. Arathorn? I spent a while looking for a Scarlett Johansson movie that worked but couldn’t. BUT in that search Gone With the Wind popped up. Scarlett’s home is Tara Backwards Arat then horn.

Morsul the Dark 08-25-2019 07:03 PM

If this is right I’m making a really bold guess at the Password. Arathorn is really only famous for being Aragorns father. Fathers isn't long enough neither is parents but.

Lineage fits.

TARA backwards is correct.

Sorry, it isn't a 'first letters' password. (This one wouldn't work with first letters).

P.S. Very good point about Arathorn's claim to fame!

Morsul the Dark 08-25-2019 08:30 PM

I was banking on the Second A being in the password;).

Tartan is most associated with Kilts. can’t find a related anagram for that though. In the meantime did you know Tartan designs act as a sort of Coat of Arms?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tartans

Edit; 4 has to be a super long name. But I’ll wager a guess.

Hamfast Gamgee it has Ham, egg, meat in the name. Not sure how phlegm, snot, or boogers enter into it though.

I'll let you have HAM GAMGEE.

It's HAM + EGG + TEA - T + M.

D is classed as a dental sound/letter; M as a nasal.

Urwen 08-26-2019 02:23 AM

Is the theme fathers?

Pervinca Took 08-26-2019 03:43 AM

Yes.

Not Scottish myself, but been there quite a few times and yes, I know each clan has their own tartan.

8. Sad Roac becomes Saradoc, Merrys father

Denethor fits for a possible password Boromirs dad

Indeed, on both counts.

??? indicates that the red letter could be ANY letter of the answer, including the first and last one.

Afraid not.

Pervinca Took 08-27-2019 01:34 AM

I'm not saying Paladin isn't AN answer. ;) But not that one.

Also, my clues tend to account for every single letter. That's just how I write them.

Morsul the Dark 08-27-2019 05:21 AM

So here’s where I’m working from and I realized I have a big issue. I’m thinking so far they’re all fathers of members of the fellowship all well and good until you realize there’s 9 answers including the password. Nine members of the fellowship nine answers all well and good. But Gandalf doesn’t exactly have a dad. Could be stretching and have Eru in there somewhere.

If Paladin Took is an answer it’s 3 or 7 It’s the only one to include kilt. But taking kilt out leaves paadnoo and how that all fits beats me. And on 7 I’ve got nothing

5 being Thranduil works because Halt Durin

See, that was the problem I had, too. But then I thought: well, if Eru isn't Gandalf's father, then who on earth is?

Bending the rules is Password Thread tradition, anyway. :D

Well done, Morsul and Urwen!

And over to Morsul.

Midge Ure: writer of Ultravox's 'Vienna' and co-writer of Band Aid's famous 'Do They Know It's Christmas?'

Morsul the Dark 08-27-2019 09:36 AM

I never would’ve gotten the Midge one. I was stuck on Midge being a gnat and trying to make tang work. I’ll have to think a bit before posting one. I really enjoyed these they were super fun!

Morsul the Dark 08-27-2019 06:02 PM

Might be a bit easy but honestly I’m in love with a few of these clues so I couldn’t resist.

1. See With with centers of activity would reveal these overweight friends
2. Brass Players are always welcome guests.
3. None to be had unless speaking on 4.
4. A piece of boiled leaf is quite the venture.
5. Truly a pleasure if one replaces their pleas with trees.
6. Very Matt Smith-Like with a little extra to follow
7. A dedication of direction that goes on and on.
———
8. A Single Disgusting expression
9. If you could see multiple raps at the door the long of the short of it, it would be this incredulous fellow.
10. On the whole this whole affair could be said to be awaited to use a similar term.

Pervinca Took 08-27-2019 11:53 PM

2. Hornburg, perhaps?

(Or daffodils? :D)
