Good ideas, but no.

Well, you're right about 'a hunt.' But it's the wrong hunt.

I wonder if it's to do with Earendil and/or Numenorian traditions. I don't remember any of their prayers though.

Still thinking of hunts... I believe Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas are called the three hunters. If you count the hunt for Gollum to be a thing, Gandalf and Aragorn. I feel that as I still don't know what to do with this information, I am probably still on the wrong track.

Quite right about the hunt, and almost there on the prayer clue.

Nope.

That isn't a present.

I'll accept that, because I think you were referring to Galadriel's gift to Gimli.

I gave up trying to think of something clever for the prayers and looked them up. The Three Prayers in Numenor were the Erukyermë, the Erulaitalë and the Eruhantalë. Any of these?

I thought ERUKYERME meant all three of the prayers together. Just looked it up again, and it's just one of the three, as you rightly state. Apologies! That was the answer, but I've amended the answer to all three of them.

'On a star' means 'on a star-shaped island,' of course.

1. Eye fluids are disturbed, with a vowel switch, and they emerge.
2. Types of boats? Well, not really. They are high.
3. A pen is mightier than these, even if they're deadly.

2. Are there boats called TOWERS, because they tow things? TOWERS are high.

3. SWORDS, from the famous saying?

And could the password be TWO? Using the third letter of each answer?

...

1. TREES!

Two of all three. The swords could be Orcrist and Glamdring, perhaps?

Short, but very sweet! Thank you.

And here we go again:

1. He’s fierce! Vehicle … scorch at great and troubling temperature!
2. Stone cat – proportion without direction, but noted. Why, we ask? And such spin, for an unpleasant way to go!
3. She’s more innovative, with vowel switch and further revolution.
4. He’s sibilant immediately - sounds like a principal.
5. Greeted Radagast, initially, in his confusion.
6. Fruity soap goes end to front to form something much sharper.
7. Large stones, thrown about, lose the original fourth for them, (a multitude, parenthetically).
8. French finished, you hear, with Laurie Lee’s village? Mingling reveals her.
9. No clearing around him.
10. Like Covid, but the next category downwards.
11. Very cold place loses chariot of somewhere very hot (or so it sounds) to leave a weapon?
12. At that time, a song within him.
13. Pester for an animal.
14. Ledge containing French husband produces a shiny thing.

#8: I tried FIN + SLAD (thanks to Wikipedia), and stared at it for a minute before realising I could go for fini > FINUI + SLAD = FINDUILAS.

#12 sounds like something inside THEN. ODE would fit as a song, to give THEODEN.

Well done, all! Four down, ten to go.

CARCHAROTH: He’s fierce! Vehicle … scorch at great and troubling temperature!
2. Stone cat – proportion without direction, but noted. Why, we ask? And such spin, for an unpleasant way to go!
3. She’s more innovative, with vowel switch and further revolution.
4. He’s sibilant immediately - sounds like a principal.
5. Greeted Radagast, initially, in his confusion.
6. Fruity soap goes end to front to form something much sharper.
7. Large stones, thrown about, lose the original fourth for them, (a multitude, parenthetically).
FINDUILAS: French finished, you hear, with Laurie Lee’s village? Mingling reveals her.
9. No clearing around him.
10. Like Covid, but the next category downwards.
AXE: Very cold place loses chariot of somewhere very hot (or so it sounds) to leave a weapon?
THEODEN: At that time, a song within him.
HOUND: Pester for an animal.
14. Ledge containing French husband produces a shiny thing.

Indeed! Well done.

#14: I vaguely recall from a song that the French for husband sounds like 'marry'. SILL + MARI = SILMARIL?

#10: if taken literally and considering the Middle-earth theme, PLAGUE is a possibility.

'Plague' is close, and on the right lines, but what is Covid, and what would be the next step down from it?
