Tuor?

Urwen 02-17-2023 04:56 PM

CELEBRIMBOR: Son of the one called crafty.
AGARWAEN: [Name], son of...
PIPPIN: One of leaf-droppers
TUOR: A messenger.
UMARTH: ...[Name]
RINGLORD: A villain by another title
EILINEL: Used to deceive her spouse by the one above.
DAUR: One of the four that 'bow to no one'

And over to you!

Pervinca Took 02-17-2023 05:06 PM

That was a good 'un, Urwen!

Here you go:

1. Also known as frequent Welsh consonant cluster – one little woman’s tale!
2. It’s as common as gulping, as can be seen within. (But change the fricative).
3. In a very twisted way, a vampire could be seen (or heard) as one of these.
4. Alpha male changes liquid, then uses the same liquid on an (initially compromised) French lawn.
5. A city plunged into chaos by surrounding dynamite? A practice to hurt and dement, in truth!
6. All vowels and a liquid, but he’s no pushover.
7. Does the grub ail and suffer perturbation for this wicked one? At last?

Urwen 02-17-2023 05:09 PM

7. Bauglir?

Indeed!

All the other clues use the first letter for the 'red' one.

Urwen 02-17-2023 05:26 PM

5. Torment (ROME+TNT)

Urwen 02-17-2023 05:28 PM

And 1 is Malbeth (MAL?+BETH)

Urwen 02-17-2023 05:35 PM

2. Nazgul?

Urwen 02-17-2023 05:37 PM

Malbeth is incorrect, but you have the correct little woman.

1. Akallabeth?

Oh! Also Known As + LL + A + BETH

Then the password is ANNATAR!

I see the party, and I crash it
I see a password, and I smash it!
Cause I find that business rather fun!

I said that....why are you telling me what I already know?! :mad:

Urwen 02-17-2023 06:37 PM

The two As are Ar-Phary and Aule. Now get off my lawn, Ar-Phary! :D

Urwen 02-17-2023 06:49 PM

Well, I am going to bed, so might as well finish it. The last N is Necromancer (NECK ROMANCER).

See you in the morning! :D

So do I get to make a new one?

Pervinca Took 02-17-2023 08:41 PM

Of course!

Urwen 02-18-2023 06:59 AM

This one had to be cryptic, or else it would have been too easy. Every clue except 2 and 7 is cryptic.



1. Alternatively, a limb. For him.
2. He's obsessed with bees.
3. A term pertaining to womb loses a same vowel twice. In chaos, the leader is revealed.
4. A broken boy surrounds a fiream. For him. Take the second.
5. Very insipid regulation, initially, follows a conjuction, for him.
6. A perturbed smithy with direction within reveals the former leader. Take the fourth.
7. The last to join; this is a translation of his name.

Pervinca Took 02-18-2023 07:42 AM

1. Orleg?

2. Beorn?

3. Turin, from uterine?

5. Andvir - AND + V I R.

6. FORWEG - FORGE + W.

Password: OUTLAWS.

Beorn is wrong.

Urwen 02-18-2023 08:07 AM

ORLEG: Alternatively, a limb. For him.
U: He's obsessed with bees.
TURIN: A term pertaining to womb loses a same vowel twice. In chaos, the leader is revealed.
L: A broken boy surrounds a fiream. For him. Take the second.
ANDVIR: Very insipid regulation, initially, follows a conjuction, for him.
FORWEG: A perturbed smithy with direction within reveals the former leader. Take the fourth.
S: The last to join; this is a translation of his name.

Pervinca Took 02-18-2023 10:09 AM

U = ULRAD, I think, although I couldn't find anything to do with bees.

L = ALGUND. LAD around GUN.

S = STRONGBOW.

His quotes in COH all mention bees.

And over to you again!

Pervinca Took 02-18-2023 03:05 PM

Fab! Another great password.

I have one half finished. I'll try to post it tomorrow.

I think you've put 2 L's in Algund, (very easily done when you're editing).

1. Hey diddle diddle, this earth’s in the centre.
