To be fair, Urwen did guess DIS or EOL.
Once the D was there, I thought it only fair and sensible to honour your first guess. Yes, you guessed two, (like Gollum's 'String, or nothing!') But once the D was there I decided to give it to you. Then, you instantly posted it anyway. But I gave it to you before I saw that.

OK! Theme, please, before I hand it over.

As for theme, why it's brother-sister pairs again.

IT'S FAST! IT'S FURIOUS! IIIIIIIIIIIIIIT'S THE PASSWORD THREAD!!

ANGROD: Naught splendid about him.
FRERIN: More exquisite direction is what he's all about.
ARTANIS: It's a strain and a muddle to find her.

THEME: BROTHER & SISTER PAIRS

(Or 'How to use up your leftover clues.')

Although I really do think DIS deserved a password of her own, in any case.

Over to you, Urwen!

You used a different name for Galadriel, am I right?

But can you solve this dilemma? If you have two [x] and three [x] with the final [x] being the password, how do you fit in the remaining clue?

Yes, Galadriel has lots of names. Artanis is one of them.

I don't understand your dilemma. Do you mean a pairs and trios one?

When it's pairs, you need a password with an odd number of letters.* Always worth counting the clues when tackling a new password, for this reason.

* Unless the password isn't a clue, of course, like with your SWEETHEART one.

This particular one has an even number of letters. I wanted to attempt trios.

Here it is.


1. For him, there are 24 of these (without direction) in circulation.
2. Note an unidentified flying object for him.
3. Returning endless knowledge? Behold it for him.
4. Two elements come together for him.
5. Complain in turmoil for him.

2 - is this UFFO (UFO + F) Boffin, grandfather of Frodo's cousin's wife?

I'm getting a 'short words' feel off several of these.

4 could be Barium + Indium = BAIN.

Or Sodium + Lithium = NALI of Moria (who died in the East Hall).

Or, of course, Osmium + Selenium = OSSE.

(Sodium + Indium gives multiple NAINs...)

... or it could not be chemistry at all, but where's the fun in that?!

4. AULE?

Au is gold. I think Le is something.

It isn't. You'd be amazed how much chemists hate the letter E.

(Possibly, come to think of it, because e-for-electron shows up a fair bit.)

Aw.

The one answer so far is an obscure Hobbit... is the password 'KUDUK'?

4 again/ Hydrogen + Americium = HAM(fast Gamgee).

But please tell me if I'm on the wrong track with these.

Neither the password nor the theme are connected to Hobbits in any way.

Elements are chemical elements, but none of these.

Molybdenum.

UFFO: Note an unidentified flying object for him.
ROLLO: Returning endless knowledge? Behold it for him.
IRMO: Two elements come together for him.
NAMO: Complain in turmoil for him.

(Theme are pairs of brothers, by the way. I originally wanted to use Feanor as the password, but ran into several kinds of troubles there, so I had to use my dad instead.)
