Finally

PRAISE: Give them this.
OLIPHAUNT: He doesn't fib.
EARENDIL: He is above the world, literally.
MAID: An unmarried woman, she.

THEODEN: Much to Robb's chagrin, he could be called 'King in the North' too.
IN: Just a preposition.
TOWER: A building that is also a boat.
LADS: Young boys, they.
ELBERETH: Wife of the God King.
SHIRE: A place of peace and joy.

Over to you.

1. Sometimes he's even called this. What larks!
2. She's a gift. Truly, she is!
3. Wax or oil changes at the end into a little glass.
4. Sounds like coffee, all in Quenya!
5. Ring ya lost? Where? The river?
6. Once camera specialists, they tried making printers. Disemvowelled, you heard, twice. Answer one is one, and so is eight! But take the third.
7. Mount this elvish element, and take the second.
8. Has hubris in one of his extremities?
9. He's a mime artist who's lost both his direction and his painter.
10. Name this county that Christ has deserted!
11. Heavenly pathway atop Mount Pelion. But initially compromised, it now gapes. Take the second.

What was the 'Robb' bit about, Urwen?

It isn't, I'm afraid.

A lot of the answers are just Elvish words. That should make it easier.

#7: "mount, this" -- ie, ORO, a Quenya word for a mountain or hill. Using the R in the password.

#9: if he's lost a painter, he's just a mime. If he's lost a direction too, he becomes MIM.

Have looked at Mount Pelion but even Shakespeare is not helping me this time.

I have to wonder why are you explaining to us something we already know? I mean, if we give those answers, it's clear we figured out the cryptic element. We're not stupid, so please stop doing it every time...

Anyway, the D one is KUDUK, from KODAK, so there is no need for you to explain the obvious again.

No, actually, it isn't always. It's courtesy to just give a brief mention of how you worked out the answer. I usually do. And to realise that explanations are for the benefit of everyone, not just the person who guessed the answer.

Or maybe ESSE, if you interpret 'Christ had deserted' as simply removing the cross, or X, from the county of ESSEX.

#1 could be PIP(pin); I guess he engages in larks (or maybe lark = bird = peregrine). Then the I, I think "all in Quenya" is the straightest of straight clue and the answer is just ILLI (similar to Ilu- in Iluvatar). I'm not sure where the coffee comes in though.

'I'm generally just called Pippin, or even Pip.' - LOTR.
'What larks, Pip!' - Joe Gargery to Pip, the hero of 'Great Expectations.'

ILLY is a make of coffee - in the 'made and served in a cafÚ' sense, I think. I've seen adverts for it.

And over to Urwen.

1. Usually the omens of death, but also helpful.
2. Article precedes twisted destruction. There they are.
3. Two different kinds, known by this single name.
4. Dwellings made of cloth are missing a head, for them.
5. Whether six legged or eight legged, they will eat you.

#4: Tents - T = ENTS?

#1: Could this be RAVENS? They are ominous, but Rońc son of Carc was a handy translator on the slopes of the Lonely Mountain.

2. Ainur (a + ruin).

5. Spiders?

Password: RACES?

3. I'd say CALAQUENDI, but they are from 3 divisions of elves. Plus Thingol, I think.

Huinesoron is battling Black Riders on Weathertop.Huinesoron is battling Black Riders on Weathertop.
If #3 is a C, then it could be CHILDREN OF ILUVATAR, for both Elves and Men. (Elves being just as racist as Gondorians, the dwarves don't get that title despite their adoption by the One.)

I remember Tolkien messed up Shelob's anatomy somehow, but when did he give them six legs?

Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
RAVENS: Usually the omens of death, but also helpful.
AINUR: Article precedes twisted destruction. There they are.
CHILDREN OF ILUVATAR: Two different kinds, known by this single name.
ENTS: Dwellings made of cloth are missing a head, for them.
SPIDERS: Whether six legged or eight legged, they will eat you.

And Pervinca takes the round, as usual.

I especially liked the RAVENS clue, Urwen.

Here's one I made a while ago:

1. Poet hailed Queen Victoria in confusion?
2. Steamy and hot! Stir it well for her, and extract nothing.
3. Shift around raven country to arrive here?
4. Roast rat!? In consternation, find him!
5. Why, we ask, does she disturb the famous water?
6. Are they rhymefully quarrelin' under its branches?
7. Mud spelled backwards, according to the Harvard Lampoon.

No to 'doom.' It refers to a chapter of something written by the Harvard Lampoon.
