Sheepland is Numenor, isn't it? Erendis and Ancalime don't want to leave their sheep, IIRC.

Erm ... Durin III?

So we can see it on the new page.

Pervinca Took 05-01-2020 11:47 AM

Maybe ALDARION for number 10. (The clue, not Downing Street).

5. ELROS, equating Numenor with Atlantis?

I was going for Anardil, but since they're the same person, it works.

Pervinca Took 05-01-2020 11:54 AM

3. ERENDIS? (Elestirne)

5. ELROS?

Pervinca Took 05-01-2020 12:04 PM

I don't know if 'sheep land' needs to be a whole country, but EMERIE is the sheep district of Numenor.

Password: The Second Age.

4. Siril.

11. Galadriel, because of the Ring of Adamant?

2. Hat-hold-ir, friend of Tar-Meneldur.

Would the last one be Ossiriand?

No. My bad, that one is cryptic too.

Pervinca Took 05-01-2020 03:42 PM

Here we go, then:

1. It drags the bearer earthwards.
2. Zero edge to this hang-out! But itís colossal.
3. Within a vow are mingled a note, two ways and two eyes, we hear? There!
4. A Fallohide shows it to a Stoor.
5. Here! Lisp an orcish preposition, and add a legal property right!
6. May they redirect a mumak!

Urwen 05-02-2020 06:54 AM

3. Osgiliath (Oath + Two I's + S + L + G)

Pervinca Took 05-02-2020 06:57 AM

Precisely!

The first one isn't The One Ring is it?

It is, but can you give it a descriptive name? (Descriptive in a way that goes with how the clue refers to it).

Urwen 05-02-2020 11:32 AM

Burden for 1?

Pervinca Took 05-02-2020 12:04 PM

That's the one!

Regarding 5, there are no Orcish prepositions.

Pervinca Took 05-02-2020 12:13 PM

There is one. I've used it here before, but long, long ago.

Urwen 05-02-2020 12:17 PM

Is it Ithilien (Ithi+lien)?

Galadriel55 05-02-2020 12:20 PM

2. Oliphaunt, from O (zero) + lip (sort of edge) + haunt (hang-out)

And thus Book VI for the password?

Yes. One can extrapolate that 'ishi' means 'in' from 'agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.'

Nearly ... nearly ...

(Yes to OLIPHAUNT).

I think Tolkien used 'lip' in that sense: 'the lip of the dell,' or something.

Urwen 05-02-2020 12:35 PM

You forgot 'Ithilien'.

Urwen 05-02-2020 12:36 PM

Book IV for the password?

Pervinca Took 05-02-2020 12:42 PM

BURDEN: It drags the bearer earthwards.
OLIPHAUNT: Zero edge to this hang-out! But it’s colossal.
OSGILIATH: Within a vow are mingled a note, two ways and two eyes, we hear? There!
K: A Fallohide shows it to a Stoor.

ITHILIEN: Here! Lisp an orcish preposition, and add a legal property right!
V: May they redirect a mumak!

Yes. I think that's what Galadriel meant, too. BOOK VI was my last one. ;)

Lol. No Oliphaunts in Book VI, except the ones Sam regrets not seeing. :D

Galadriel55 05-02-2020 12:46 PM

V for Valar then! See Mablung / Damrod's (forget which one actually said it) prayer-like exclamation when they guard Frodo and Sam.

Easy to make typos with Roman numerals. ;)

'Mumak! Mumak! May the Valar turn him aside!'

(I guess lady oliphaunts didn't go to war?) :D Or maybe he was referring to the rider.

You can have it, you got the right book. ;)

Pervinca Took 05-02-2020 12:55 PM

One clue to go first, though! ;)

Urwen 05-02-2020 12:55 PM

Knife for the last one? (Is Frodo a Fallohide?)

Ooohhh, that's a good one!

However, right Fallohide, right Stoor, wrong thing.

(Frodo has Fallohide blood, yes. Hence his physical appearance and adventurous nature. And skill with languages and speech. He would presumably also have some Harfoot traits from his Baggins father, though, like Bilbo had).
