Well, the theme is Middle-earth couples: Finduilas of Dol Amroth and Denethor II, Faramir Took and Goldilocks Gamgee, Elanor Gamgee and Fastred of Greenholm. That leaves Arwen and Thorongil (Toil,...

Pipe Might as well clear this one up

I think these are probably the remaining answers.

1. Finduilas: Find, u, anagram of sail
4. Turgon: T[rade] U[nion], and anagram of Gron[d]
7. Denethor: Den, E, thor

I don't know how I missed this. That is the right answer. Sorry about the mix up: I've been particularly tired lately. Now that you've mentioned it, all I'm thinking is: Dunhere ye cannae get guid...

It's not Hma, but you'll get there if you follow various ideas you've put forward already.

Neither of those, I'm afraid. Try more wordplay and less allusion.

That fits the clue nicely, but it's not the answer I had in mind. I was being a bit less metaphorical about the stairs.

None of those are the right answer, but Mithalwen is headed in the right direction.

It is Halifirien. Setter (I) doubly and En, around fir, after Lah backwards. The definition is rubbish, though, as nobody ever hid anything there. I must have confused it with Dunharrow.

Quite so


Both reasonable. It's probably worth seeing where they go.
There are more options that you're not considering, but that's also a good direction to try.

Huan isn't a setter. Tolkien seems to imply that he's some special breed native to Valinor. Also the answer isn't Hornburg, which is too close to Aglarond to make for a good password. As for doubly...

Not a trap, although I may claim later that it was a cunning double bluff. In any case, that's the right answer.

At the Council of Elrond



Orald is an Old English word, so should represent Rohirric. It's likely that it survives from a now extinct language spoken by the ancestors of the Rohirrim before...

While the primary meaning is intended to recall genius loci and therefore Tom, the alternative meaning is an intentional misdirection.

Did it really? Just goes to show how little help Google is going to be, I suppose. Rock on, though.

Exactly.

There's a very good reason why you can't get Helm's Deep to work for 9: it's not the solution. I can tell a setter from a collie, even when it's barking up the wrong tree.

I think some answers predate or are otherwise not exclusive to Rohan, so I suppose it's an important distinction. Having a theme that's not the password just seems like too much work to me.

You're right about everything except 10. And the theme if I'm being really pedantic.

That was a good little theme, and Ithil does fit, albeit tangentially. Minas Anor only became Minas Tirith after the fall of its sister city.

I've put this together in something of a hurry, but...
