GROND: Some love departs from the south kingdom. It’s certainly left in turbulence by this. (3)
2. Pain without silence, directed to the centre of hell! Now see it! (4)
ORCRIST: Alternatively, Cynewulf’s poem will lead you to it. (3)
4. Stuff quaffed in Whitby? A secondary change will reveal it. (4)

Not ORCS, I'm afraid.

For 4, I searched and found 'beer' or 'wine'. So we change a second letter from one of those?

Yes, one of those, and Whitby is known for a particular kind of festival - due, I believe, to its 'Dracula' connection.

I made a quick one

1. Naomi's other name; read backwards. Add an article, and there it is.
2. Dwarvish weapon surrounded by broken ham. Run past here.
3. Broken grain and returning rodent, here.
4. He's the Lord of the Dead...or two element symbols put together.

#4 must surely be sodium molybdide... er, NaMo.

(Molybdide... [Shudders] That just sounds like an astoundingly bad idea. You think you're getting a nice stable salt, and instead you get molybdenum rapidly reacting with anything it can find. Eww.)

ARATHAR has a backward RAT, an A and the RA of grain. Can't account for the H, though.

Trouble is, I have no idea which Naomi you mean. I'm not that immersed in pop culture these days.

Could the Naomi one be ALALMINORE?

I've assumed it's the Biblical Naomi, but I don't remember enough of the story to know her other names. Google however says that she was also named Mara, which turns into ARAMAN with "an" for the article.

Hoping that G55 has this one, so that leaves the returning rodent. Hrm.

How about AVALLONE? It contains VOLE, pluse... AALN. Is NALA a grain?

Alqualonde is also an A-place in Aman, but I can't find anything approaching a rodent in there.

ANNATAR would have come from Aman, and has a returning RAT. But ... it's a place we need.

The best I've got so far for grain is that "Amon Amarth" contains an anagram of Amaranth.

A-places I can find that we haven't suggested for this clue so far, in case they inspire anyone:

- Alqualonde
- Alalminore
- Antaro
- Amon Uilos
- Arfanyaras(se)
- Afros

Actually I'm going to go ahead and guess ANTARO, the obscure mountain in southern Aman, because it has a backwards rat in it (though I can't find any anagram of ANO which relates to grain).

Also curious about the grain.

And here's the next puzzle!

1. Silver fruit combines for another shiny thing.
2. Hang around in confusion, with eye turned to the Orient, so to speak, to see it.
3. Cambrian rebel, but no longer in debt, reveals it.
4. Lionheart and son of Njal! Change the fourth to find it.
