1. Balrog now I’m forcing the clues to fit

Bulldog + …synonym for courage scrambled in the middle… sounds like Balrog

I think B might be BOLDOG instead, from the Lay of Leithian era.

For E, "bane of the young" plus Urwen saying it suggests EVIL BREATH, killer of... well, Urwen!

Thanks - but I only solved the easiest clues, I think, and only got the password because of G55's work. Still, here, according to the rules, is the next password:

1. Initially ruby red hot spam in a mélange shows directions.
2. An affectionate chap, this Bill.
3. Exclamation jars out here.
4. Nothing for Pony waiter who’s lost weight? See what a muddle there is here!
5. Oh Mr Branagh, protect us! Hear him! See him!
6. Gallant and brave, but confused, and with a liquid shift.
7. He’s all about this undergarment and its cup size!
8. Haradrim lad rises to the challenge. See the place within!
9. French betrayal without care meets a mixed-up boy for this chap.

For the second B I originally thought Bra'n'D, but 'all about' makes it even simpler: BARD.

T: French for "betrayal" is trahison. If we drop the -ison as somehow being "care", and add lad > ald, we meet TRAHALD.

E: so you can make a soundalike for ESGAROTH from the first syllables of your three words: Ex > es, jar > gar (like "gif"), out > outh > oth.

H: so I wanted "lost weight" to mean a letter or two removed (eg g, lb), but that makes it really hard to find an H. If it doesn't, mean that, then we could be looking at O + (B/N)ob + light, which... I guess it has most of the letters for HOBBITON? You can get even closer with Nil + Bob + hot, if the weight-loss made him attractive (or sweaty).

B: No idea; I'm gonna guess BILBO or BALIN, as both are either gallant or brave and have liquids in their names.

TRAHALD: French betrayal without care meets a mixed-up boy for this chap.

ESGAROTH is OH + GRATES (jars) mixed up. 'Out' is the anagram indicator.

TRAHISON - SOIN (care) + LAD = TRAHALD.

O + BOB + THIN = HOBBITON.

B starts off with a word meaning gallant and brave.

I'm running up against Boldog, who does not appear in The Hobbit. BOLG?

... or, okay, if the synonym is "noble", we can do an L>R shift and hit BEORN?

Thank you! Here's another (hopefully) easy one.


1. Angband? Singular and undescriptive. You in, by the sound of it, and cold and blue.
2. Me, a Numenorean queen, loses myself when confusion noted, and shining bright.
3. The sun shines in rightless kingdom.
4. Ringil gets five first over top for a right, before it floats.
5. Earwen changes the head of war for backwards top, and a relative appears.
6. Light goes a different way and becomes its opposite.
7. A fictional coin for reaping.

Silmaril

(Urin is an old form of Hurin's name.)

In order of my thought process this morning:

#7: A SICKLE is a coin from Harry Potter, I believe.

#3: Can't make this Gondor, but if you remove R(ight) from Arnor, you get ANOR, the Sun.

Hmm... lots of sky stuff here.

#5: the 'head of war' is W. "Earen" evokes a certain name that fits the theme, and sure enough, a top is a lid > EARENDIL.

If #4 gets 'five first', that could be a Roman V, which means the password can be HEAVENS.

#1: Should end with -uin (but not the whale). Angband is the Hells of Iron; take away the plural and the descriptor and we get the stay HELLUIN.

#4: 'it floats' + V suggests VINGILOT, ship of Earendil. Ringil > Vingil, 'over top' could be top backwards, and 'for a right' would indicate that we're only using the right part, ie -ot.

Yes and yes and yes! Vingilot comes from Ringil - R(ight) + V (Roman 5) + O. T. (first of Over Top).

Well, working backwards from "I can only think of two astronomical Es and the other one is gone"... Me + Miriel - I + E, shaken not stirred, = ELEMMIRE.

Correct! And with that, over to Hui.


1. HELLUIN: Angband? Singular and undescriptive. You in, by the sound of it, and cold and blue.
2. ELEMMIRE: Me, a Numenorean queen, loses myself when confusion noted, and shining bright.
3. ANOR: The sun shines in rightless kingdom.
4. VINGILOT: Ringil gets five first over top for a right, before it floats.
5. EARENDIL: Earwen changes the head of war for backwards top, and a relative appears.
6. NIGHT: Light goes a different way and becomes its opposite.
7. SICKLE: A fictional coin for reaping.

Great! That was fun, putting it together a piece at a time. And here we go:

1. - Speaker of a spell: "Become a limb!"
2. - The opposites of your wife's parents are wicked.
3. - A son named his father, but hesitated at the beginning of the world.
4. - A tasty king.
5. - Sounds grim, heir to the house.
6. - Before the road, a woman can go back and forth and seem fair.
7. - A confused alien with a Greek eye, and the first High King? I'm seeing red.
8. - In the shadows, hear me initially name my ideas for a villain.
9. - Muffin lost his tail, found a big stick, turned around and went down into a cave.
10. - Link up and profit in a break in the sun.
11. - A cat in eyeshadow definitely can't fly, but...
12. - The wretched band with an icy world covered in glitter.
13. - The Elvish fingermarks left by the childlike, or close enough for the youngest.
14. - Take a note at the top of the park, direct to the start of the word, and hide from him.
