Balin for B one.

Pervinca Took 02-15-2023 08:52 AM

DORA: Unlike at least two of her kinsmen, this one is most likely no explorer!
IRMO: Gardener and dream-keeper?
SAEROS: Elvish gob****e forced to go commando and the rest.
YELLOW: The facial hue that Gollum dreads?
LOTHO: A guy with a salty wife starts to howl, revealing him.
LINDON: Find this fair place in a tunnel in Doncaster!
APPLE: Projectile fruit for a Breeland gob****e.
B A famous gravestone bears his name.
ISEN: It flows through Paris. It mingles and loses direction. Then it flows again.
C A warrior. But changed fully at his core, and flipped at either side of it, he is cruel no longer.

Nope.

Good idea, though.

Urwen 02-15-2023 08:56 AM

Gorthaur comes to mind for C one.

Nothing to do with Gorthaur.

Urwen 02-15-2023 08:59 AM

Then what does 'cruel' mean?

Pervinca Took 02-15-2023 09:03 AM

It means cruel. The clue is cryptic.

Urwen 02-15-2023 09:04 AM

Celegorm?

Urwen 02-15-2023 09:11 AM

Or just Ceorl, by changing the u in CRUEL to O, and rearranging the word?

Pervinca Took 02-15-2023 09:12 AM

No.

I (pretty much) always account for every letter in my clues.

That's more like it. And flipping the letters either side of the U.

No.

Urwen 02-15-2023 09:34 AM

Barrow?

Pervinca Took 02-15-2023 09:36 AM

No.

It's a name that appears on a gravestone.

Urwen 02-15-2023 09:42 AM

Which one? A real-life one?

Pervinca Took 02-15-2023 10:23 AM

Could be.

Urwen 02-15-2023 10:30 AM

Beleg?

Pervinca Took 02-15-2023 10:33 AM

No.

Urwen 02-15-2023 10:54 AM

I am out, then.

Pervinca Took 02-15-2023 12:44 PM

You were warm when you said 'real life.'

Oh.

Oh

It just dawned on me. It was right there the whole time!

Beren.

Indeed! Well done. And over to you!

Urwen 02-16-2023 06:47 AM

Well, I've managed to come up with this.

1. Son of the one called crafty.
2. [Name], son of...
3. One of leaf-droppers
4. A messenger.
5. ...[Name]
6. A villain by another title
7. Used to deceive her spouse by the one above.
8. One of the four that 'bow to no one'.

Hope you like it!

(P.S: I am not sure 7 fits the theme, but the text implies she does.)

Pervinca Took 02-16-2023 08:47 AM

3. Pippin?

1. Maeglin / Lomion?

Urwen 02-16-2023 08:50 AM

Maeglin does fit the theme, too, but I couldn't make him fit all the letters.

Galadriel55 02-16-2023 12:08 PM

6. Enemy?

Nope. It's a more...obscure title.

Pervinca Took 02-16-2023 02:09 PM

7. Eilinel?

6. Bauglir?

Not Morgoth. The other villain. The one who used Eilinel directly.

Password: CAPTIVES?

If so, Sam for the last one.

Or maybe CAPTURED?

Or CAPTURES?

Urwen 02-16-2023 06:10 PM

Galadriel55 02-16-2023 07:06 PM

1. Celebrimbor, son of Curufin? Both crafty and craftsy.

Oh, and A/U must be AGARWAEN, son of UMARTH.

Urwen 02-16-2023 07:28 PM
