Oh, Ar- Pharazon. I even wrote the Ar in the break down, but got a little overexcited with the answer.

A = ANARION?

ANION with RA mirrored inside.

N = NOM + HILT = NIMLOTH.

Is L Lord something?

Lord of the Rings?

Lord of the World?

Problem is, if the globe isn't a jewel, Middle-earth isn't a globe yet.

Lord Eru/Illuvatar, who then makes it one?

Ah, I was using tartar and mint, and even taco and soy, but I was using dales, vales and valleys.

Nice one, Urwen, and neat work, G55.

I'll have a password ready soon.

Here you go ...

1. Rave, bolt around, but find the little town!
2. Animated king combines with vault for a mount.
3. Iniquity and muck combine for him.
4. Stone me! A book without a beast. Or an article.
5. Gift of a street map book, mirrored within a small round toy one short November.
6. Here is a North Oxford college in minimal confusion.
7. Oh la la! It helps if you look for her carefully. (She’s running along, as was her wont).
8. He’s easily confused with the middle name of Christopher’s sometime helper.
9. A weapon showing effects of peroxide? There’s three scattered inside, barring the loss of direction – and most of it falls in a clump.
10. It’s here, somewhere in this newly risen garden.
11. A very flower of a priest?

I think we might need a hint or two, Pervinca. I'm dry.

OK!

Number 1 is easy, and doesn't use synonyms.

Number 2 uses not a Tolkien king, but a king who gives his name to a set of British books created in 1980, and, (as I actually remember), a cartoon. There was a Viking leader with the same name, but I don't know if he has any connection with the cartoon king. I had a feeling I'd need to give a hint for that one.

Number 3 uses synonyms, but fairly easy ones.

For the final one, think of a Christian priest who is performing a ritual.

I do keep coming back to this, but always get nowhere.

#2 is probably King Rollo, but apart from being very sad that it's not an Oliver Postgate clue I don't know where to go next.

#5: the street map book is probably an A-Z, and 'one short November' sounds like "in". So... ????ZA????IN. The toy could be a ball, but Balzalin isn't a thing.

-- wait. If the toy is a yo-yo, and "small" means it's missing a letter, this could be yo + z-a + y + an == YOZAYAN, an Adunaic name for Numenor.

#6: By pulling out a list of Oxford colleges, it looks like Oriel could become ERIOL, if we're feeling Lost Tales-ish.

#8: The middle name in question is probably Gavriel (as in Guy Kay), but, like... that just leads to GABRIEL, who's not very Middle-earthy.

#9: I ran down a chemical blind alley before realising that the effect of peroxide is probably just "bleach". Or white?

#11: I'm thinking hard about this priest of yours, but he's not giving me the answer; just muttering in Latin.

2. ROLLO is the correct element. But what two things can 'mount' mean? And what is a vault?

6. So is ORIEL. I'm not 100% sure which part of Oxford ORIEL is in, but take North as a separate element anyway.

'Gift' was the straight clue for Yozayan, with A for one and N for the short November.

9. What does peroxide CAUSE?

8. No, it stays at GAVRIEL, until it gets switched around. Try running it through an anagram machine. There are a few on the internet.

A mount is a horse, a hill, or something to put things on. A vault is a safe, a cellar, or a jump. ROCHALLOR at least has Rollo, but I can't put anything useful together out of 'char'.

Noriel... cripes, that sounds like an Amazon name for a dwarf-elf halfbreed. Roniel. Niroel. Nope, clearly too tired.

Oh, yeah, 'confused' is an anagram indicator. I am smart, I promise.

ARVEGIL, eleventh king of Arthedain? (Presumably originally Somethingelsevegil, since it would be a bit of a risk to stick "Ara-" on your firstborn's name when he might die and need a replacement. Perhaps he was originally named Mormegil, stealing the trick from the Stewards of Gondor of just ripping off the Silm.)

Lol, to each their own. My own (much shorter) list of effects of peroxide was "disinfection".

Before Pervinca's hint about what it causes, I was dead set on something that contained Hx2 and Ox2, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Umm... it causes... bubbles? Oxidation?



11. Great Water? Great for "very", water for "flower" (meh?), and of the most frequent rituals performed by priests, baptism certainly involves water.

VAULT can apparently be a synonym of ARCH.

9. Look at all the named weapons in Middle-earth.

No to 11.

P.S. Noriel? Prepare to kick yourself. (No, Autocorrect. Not Muriel).

Please don't drink hydrogen peroxide! This is literally my job, please don't drink the stuff! It will do its level best to oxidise you from the inside out.

And 1 is Tavrobel. Which makes me think of a certain theme...

Nice! That was a good catch. I wasn't even thinking in that direction.


6. I don't know whether to facepalm or if that would reduce brain function even further, but Noriel is an anagram of LORIEN... and yes, it took me this long to figure it out after reading the last post about it, after Hui did all the research and legwork.

TAVROBEL: Rave, bolt around, but find the little town!
ROCHALLOR: Animated king combines with vault for a mount.
ISENGARD: Iniquity and muck combine for him.
S: Stone me! A book without a beast. Or an article.
YOZAYAN: Gift of a street map book, mirrored within a small round toy one short November.
LORIEN: Here is a North Oxford college in minimal confusion.
LALAITH: Oh la la! It helps if you look for her carefully. (She’s running along, as was her wont).
ARVEGIL: He’s easily confused with the middle name of Christopher’s sometime helper.
BELTHRONDING: A weapon showing effects of peroxide? There’s three scattered inside, barring the loss of direction – but most of it falls in a clump.
ISENGARD: It’s here, somewhere in this newly risen garden.
C: A very flower of a priest?

Peroxide causes BLONDING. Scatter the word THREE into it, minus one of the E's, (lose direction), but most of it falls together in a clump, (THR).

SIN + GRIME = ISENGRIM

RAVE + BOLT = TAVROBEL

When I double-checked, it seemed that Lalaith has two syllables, but I think it could be stretched to three.

The straight clue for the last one is flower, yes?

Oh, Google was very helpful. Thanks, Google.

Nice one!

There's still one clue to go, though - the S one.

It's pretty easy. Stone is the straight clue. Start finding the elements with a book we all know very well.
