It's been a few days, so how about a couple of hints?

#4 is probably the easiest; 'dwarven house' means 'Dwarven House', not settlement. There's only seven, and only one has a support in it.

Prediction 8 & Prediction 6

Once again, I was correct in stating that one of Tolkien's sets of seven would be about rivers. In fact, I was more than correct: both of the remaining sevens are sets...

WOOOO! I get what you mean about listening to all the old parts again, but I've mostly listened to them with vocals over the top. I just listened to the whole thing unadorned, and it's really good! I...

Hmm... this could work. I'd probably have to draw a bit more of them (they're mostly not much taller than their frames, just wider), but it could work. I'll have to look at it.
