My bad. It seems that the password isn't entirely operational. Please stand by while I fix this.

Pervinca Took 05-13-2019 04:49 PM

Is it romantic pairs, with SWEETHEART for the password?

Urwen 05-13-2019 05:02 PM

Okay, you may now continue.

Pervinca Took 05-13-2019 05:06 PM

Oh, of course - GO *is* a Monopoly square. 'Do not pass go.'

Urwen 05-13-2019 05:17 PM

I am going to bed now. Will look at all the remaining answers come morn.

(P.S: No. 1 is preposterously easy, and so is number 10 - once you find no. 1, that is. ;))

Pervinca Took 05-13-2019 05:21 PM

Oh ...

Rosie. I within rose.

SAMWISE

AIMS + WES(T).

I suppose the rest is Gamgee, or Gardner. Can't see the animal, unless it's GG. And can only see A for the article.

(Password: SWEETHEART).

William Cloud Hicklin 05-13-2019 06:02 PM

1 is ROSIE (ROSE + I)

William Cloud Hicklin 05-13-2019 06:31 PM

Hmmm- 10 has to contain a T; SAMWISE doesn't, and neither do either of his 'normal' surnames.

Urwen 05-14-2019 02:31 AM

Try one of his titles.

Pervinca Took 05-14-2019 05:01 AM

Samwise the Strong would give us the article.

The article has no tail, and don't forget the animal clue either.

Urwen 05-14-2019 05:09 AM

Look on this page, under the heading of 'other names', and you'll see what I mean.

Pervinca Took 05-14-2019 06:23 AM

Well, PANTHAEL has TH and APE, but not much else, AFAICS.

Urwen 05-14-2019 06:25 AM

Not that one.

Pervinca Took 05-14-2019 06:27 AM

One I used recently has a HART, but it's unperturbed. ;)

Urwen 05-14-2019 06:27 AM

Here is a hint

I meant one of these:

Over to Pervinca.

And thankfully, I now have a lovely new laptop with my documents installed on it, so it won't be a fourth one about the Council of Elrond that I've had to make up on the hoof!

Here you go:

1. Repair and reign through turmoil, he does. Move along one.
2. Back number thirteen. Initially lose trust, but replace with direction. See her!
3. She reforms one long-serving prisoner.
4. A dwarf sickens, but is restored by her.
5. No ease of the womb, we hear. At sixes and sevens, he is.
6. He arranged a note of complaint.
7. Was she heard to mock or gloat at the time?

Urwen 05-14-2019 09:13 AM

Three 'he' and four 'she'.

.....Are you continuing my 'romantic couples' idea?

Pervinca Took 05-14-2019 09:15 AM

No.

I did 2 couples ones myself, quite a while ago.

(Well, a while in terms of this thread. It moves very quickly these days!)

Urwen 05-14-2019 09:17 AM

All right, 1 is Meneldur (Mend+Rule)

Urwen 05-14-2019 09:17 AM

And the theme is rulers of Numenor.

Pervinca Took 05-14-2019 09:20 AM

MENELDUR: Repair and reign through turmoil, he does. Move along one.
2. Back number thirteen. Initially lose trust, but replace with direction. See her!

4. A dwarf sickens, but is restored by her.

7. Was she heard to mock or gloat at the time?

Nowt to do with Numenor.

Urwen 05-14-2019 09:25 AM

There is only one Meneldur, the King of Numenor, though. There are no other people who bore that name.

Urwen 05-14-2019 10:22 AM

4. Aredhel (RED (DWARF) + HEAL)
