I hope you apreciate that I make a fool of myself Turambar [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Here is another shot in the dark: 1) Calenardhon I dont get the '2 tens (20???)' reference, but lacking a head and a tail could be something about being sparsely populated before Cirion gave it to Eorl whereafter there came both men and horses (tails)... gosh it sounds lame...

Telchar - Normally, In Cryptic-ese, "lacking a head and tail" means you take off the first and last letters of the word referred to.

#4 Amon Uilos ?
#5 Maeglin ?

No, Telchar. Thinks something that sounds like two numbers put together...oh, no! I said too much! [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

No...

Keep guessing...there aren't that many Gondolindrim... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

NightKnight 10-25-2003 05:31 AM

5) Glorfindel, as dell would be valley. First one from Gondolin I could think of.

Ah! And fin is a fish's top, I deem. I think you've got it, Night Knight. Good one!

Uhh -
  • helm/helmet
  • hat
  • cap
  • Fedora ?

NightKnight 10-26-2003 04:20 AM

A wild guess would be Anórien at 1), as we need a vowel there. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Telchar 10-26-2003 06:34 AM

4) Ulmo ?

Quote:

for the arising of the King of the Sea was terrible, as a mounting wave that strides to the land, with dark helm foam-crested and raiment of mail shimmering from silver down into shadows of green.

Voralphion 10-26-2003 08:34 PM

4) Nevrast? where Ulmo appeared to Tuor, and where Tuor got his helmet (headgear)

Nilpaurion Felagund 10-26-2003 11:54 PM

Sorry for the disappearance. Anywhen...

NightKnight is right!

Updating...
1. A land in Gondor, two tens with and without me, lacking a head and a tail.
2. Mahal-He created the present moment ahead of cruelty.
3. Heren Istarion-They were many, but only three did something.
4. Epessë of the ocean of headgear.
5. Glorfindel-Hidden elf ends in fish's top valley.

Nilpaurion Felagund 10-27-2003 12:07 AM

Quote:

Uh...no! It doesn't begin in a vowel, and Anórien is not mathematical in any sense. Choose another Gondorian fief.

4) Nevrast?
No, sorry.

By the way, I repeat the clue for the password: Reverse Saucy.

NightKnight 10-27-2003 04:25 AM

Not a vowel, eh? Then the only letter that could work would be S, and the only place I can find is South Ithilien.

By the way, what does Epesse mean?

Turambar 10-27-2003 07:35 AM

Belfalas? Lamedon? Dol Amroth? Lebennin? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Epessë means "later name".

[ October 27, 2003: Message edited by: Turambar ]

NightKnight 10-27-2003 10:43 AM

Ocean of headgear could be Helm's Deep. As for later name, Aglarond?

Also, are both H and I in 3) parts of the password?

Turambar 10-27-2003 01:56 PM

Night Knight - another good solution!

Not sure on "Heren Istarion", but for the meaning of "Reverse Saucy", see p. 3 of this thread. (The answer to Sauceman's puzzle was the first letter of clue #1, the second letter of clue #2, etc.)

NightKnight 10-28-2003 02:49 AM

Then it's probably 1st letter in the 5th clue, 2nd in the 4th, etc. *Sigh*

My next guess is Lamedon for 1), since it has "me" in it.

4) Himring?

Lebennin?
You're correct!

Updating...
1. Lebennin-A land in Gondor, two tens with and without me, lacking a head and a tail.
2. Mahal-He created the present moment ahead of cruelty.
3. Heren Istarion-They were many, but only three did something.
4. Epessë of the ocean of headgear.

No...but Helm's Deep is right. Choose another name for it.

NightKnight 10-29-2003 04:31 AM

I believe the password is Narog.

The Glittering Caves ?

Nilpaurion - can you explain #1 ?

Yes. I'd be grateful if you could explain it too.

#4. Hornburg?

Gladly.
  • Two tens, the first with me(or I, which represents the number one)= 10+1 =11(eleven)
  • The second ten without me = 10-1 =9(nine)
  • Elevennine lacking a head and a tail=Levennin, or Lebennin

Tadah! (OK, that wasn't good, wasn't it?) [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Yes, but NightKnight already got the password. Your go.

Turambar 10-31-2003 01:38 PM

*bump*

Night Knight is up.

NightKnight 10-31-2003 02:03 PM

1) Other confused moon between defeat and a half goblin with flowers.
2) No wooden bow edge.
3) High starts with back, before the right one river.
4) River stopped by white speaks at last note.
5) Muddled steel youngling.
6) Pointy Greek ship before cut king's chair followed by a note.

It's my first, and I hope it's a good one. A clue for the entire password would be gold.

#5 Nargothrond ?

Could #3 be Ringló ?

[ November 01, 2003: Message edited by: Turambar ]

Nargothrond is right, Ringlo isn't.

Is the password Lorien by any chance? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

NightKnight 11-02-2003 04:01 PM

Argh! You're too fast! Well, it is Lorien. Well done on getting it. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Now guess the others. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

#4 Isen ?

Finwe 11-02-2003 04:46 PM

1) Lossarnach?
3) Anduin?

[ November 02, 2003: Message edited by: Finwe ]

NightKnight 11-03-2003 01:04 PM

Lossarnach is right, Isen and Anduin aren't.

1) Lossarnach (Other confused moon between defeat and a half goblin with flowers.)
2) No wooden bow edge.
3) High starts with back, before the right one river.
4) River stopped by white speaks at last note.
5) Estel (Muddled steel youngling.)
6) Nargothrond (Pointy Greek ship before cut king's chair followed by a note.)
