Umm... go back to "King of Rock and Roll". That's Elvis. Follow the other instruction in the clue, which will get you to (an admittedly vague) synonym for the literal term.

Alternatively, and what's probably easier, think what the straight clue might be and go backwards. The straight clue couldn't be straighter.

Palantir means 'far-seeing' in elvish. Just in case it helps.

That was great! The Spam/Thror's map one was my favourite clue.

Why bundle, though, in the Elvis clue? Is It slang for a nickname or unofficial title?

Anyway, here's the next one:

1. Underground? Overground? Womble, that's he.
2. Medical chap swallows half a Vala for him.
3. Deity overlaps short palindrome girl to meet perturbed footwear? A bigger girl emerges.
4. Mouse changes heads to reveal him?
5. Hard word. Starts with clear direction to a pub. But why, I say? To finish it off with a dwarvish tool.
6. Palindrome girl leads the way to a teacup omen - he's there, but the whole answer is one of his female relatives.
7. One solitary girl? It's revolutionary.
8. Not poetry, but it contains edge - and then she appears.
9. His posterior leapfrogs and is disorientated, but meets a headless 80s singer.

#1: Great Uncle Bulgaria?!?

Ahem.

#6: I have vague memories of Trelawney going on about a Grim, so the clue could point at Ada + L ("leads the way") + grim = Adalgrim Took. His immediate female relatives are his mother, ROSA BAGGINS (TOOK), and his only named daughter, ESMERALDA TOOK (BRANDYBUCK). My guess is more likely the latter.

Yes. I've put it in, above.

Sorry, edited instead of quoting, by mistake, and so erased my praise of Huey for solving the first clue, near enough. (It's one of his aunts, not his wife or daughter).

Not to worry, I saw it.

#1: Okay, not Bulgaria, but apparently there's a Womble called BUNGO, as in Baggins.

#2: Sounds like it's 'Doc' split around something. There's a hobbit named DODERIC Brandybuck, though I can't find half a Vala in "deri". And there's always DOMINIC "Merry" Monaghan, using the miniature Vala Minimusë...

Start with an abbreviation of Doctor for 2, and try a well-known Vala.

I've been working with MD for that, but still not getting far with the Vala. Maybe I should start working through them systematically, there are only seven of them (though many of them do have several names).

Hints, eh?

4. You need a cartoon mouse, not a synonym.

5. Find a synonym for 'pub.'

2. It's a FAR more obvious abbreviation of Doctor!

Oh. Really?

There's Denethor for a start, and he's not even the answer!

Ah right. So if you go with Dr. and Aule, you van get DAUR, which if I recall from your previous passwords is a name for Frodo and fits the hobbit theme going on here. Or am I just quoting from HOME XIII, The Weird Bits?

It's in LOTR itself.

'Long live the Halflings! Praise them with great praise!
Cuio i Pheriain anann! Aglar'ni Pheriannath!
Praise them with great praise, Frodo and Samwise!
Daur a Berhael, Conin en Annun! Eglerio!
Praise them!
Eglerio!
A laita te, laita te! Andave laituvalmet!
Praise them!
Cormacolindor, a laita tarienna!
Praise them! The Ring-bearers, praise them with great praise!'


Mind you, I once thought 'Conin en Annun' meant 'Frodo and Sam.'

And here's the intro to The Wombles, to go with clue 1. :-

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VLCvqAZo5kQ

And here's the whole song:

Wombles *were* the original recyclers!

Correct.

Can you give the reasons?

BUNGO: Underground? Overground? Womble, that's he.
DAUR: Medical chap swallows half a Vala for him.
GOLDILOCKS: Deity overlaps short palindrome girl to meet perturbed footwear? A bigger girl emerges.
MERRY: Mouse changes heads to reveal him?
N Hard word. Starts with clear direction to a pub. But why, I say? To finish it off with a dwarvish tool.
ADALGRIM'S AUNT: Palindrome girl leads the way to a teacup omen - he's there, but the whole answer is one of his female relatives.
ELANOR: One solitary girl? It's revolutionary.
PRIMROSE: Not poetry, but it contains edge - and then she appears.
S His posterior leapfrogs and is disorientated, but meets a headless 80s singer.

Yep.

Footwear was just SOCK, (singular), though.

The S could be SAMWISE, but I can't figure out who the headless 80s singer would be from MWIE. (It's almost 'Bowie', but then there's that spare M).

I'm guessing "Adalgrim's Aunt" is Belladonna Took-Baggins; she's technically his first cousin once removed or something, but that's a closer relationship than between Frodo and "Uncle" Bilbo, so perhaps Hobbits just call anyone one generation above you but within the same extended family Aunt or Uncle.

That N is a puzzler, though, and no mistake.

That's because the answer isn't Samwise.

Gather the elements for the N clue, and you might surprise yourself.

N could be the starting direction. Pub - most likely an INN. Why = Y.

...Ninnyhammer?

I will throw out Sharkey as fitting an "unconventional" resident of that home. No idea how to match the clue.
