Yes, Cora (from The Last Of The Mohicans) switched around to give Roac. (Nerwen used Roac recently as an anagram of Orca, which gave me the idea).

The remaining two are as follows.

Aros - a source of water and anagram of soar
Hrin - an anagram of Halbarad's initial and ruin, which certainly was visited upon him.

Yes, I once used "oars" as the anagram for Aros, saying that rowing implements might be needed there.

4 Can loan silver periodically to this bte noire?

Ancalagon?

Can loan + Ag (symbol for silver in the periodic table).

(Rumoured to be quite a beast, too!)

Nice one, Galadriel! (Nice two, in fact!) I wondered if mute figured somewhere in there, but that was as far as I got! (And I forgot all the elvish secret places and could only think of Henneth Annun!)

8. Was ORODRETH a weak ruler?

Which prompts me to guess ARTANARO for the password.

7 R Source of scandal shortened in parts for elf or elves.

Before I knew this one started with R, I thought it had something to do with a shortened version of Rumour, and that it might be Rumil. But I couldn't work out "elf or elves." Looked up Rumil, though, and there were two of them. Brother or Haldir and Orophin, of course, but also Rumil of Tirion. I can't work out the "in parts" bit, though.

Rumil is correct...source of scandal = rumour mill.

Ah - that explains "shortened in parts" and where the "il" comes from. Good clue! Wouldn't have got the mill bit.

Fabulosity! Another player. An obscure name, too (Anaire, I mean).

Fingolfin is one of my favourite elves. I wonder if they met again after his death. I would hope he would have been rebodied by Mandos. He had done no evil that I can remember.

I would think so..wasn't his main reason for going so not to abandon the Noldor to the folly of the Feanoreans? And his valour against Morgoth must count for something.

6 A Place in the principality here and in short there.

I've been looking for principalities in the First Age, but although elven-princes are alluded to very much, it seems to be a rather loose use of the word. The First Age seems to be about kingdoms with one High King overall.

That seems to leave Dol Amroth and Ithilien. Arnen became known as Ithilien, which isn't really the same thing as being a place in it. But I will venture it as an extremely feeble guess. Can't satisfy "here and there," but it has directions in it, and two letters of "and" ....

Have changed in short to in part. Third age is correct. Here and there is the crucial part. No anagrams or directions involved.

Here and there - is Anorien partly in Ithilien and partly not? Or is it Anorien and "part" of it - "Anor" - is in Ithilien?

Not Anorien. I think you may be overthinking it. Where would I, as the question setter mean by here and there?

If you're referring to the Downs, I did think of Arthedain, but as far as I can make out that was only ever a kingdom (albeit a small kingdom).

OK, that was dim of me. I suspect some elvish-sounding name from a principality closer to home (Wales). Hmmmmm.

Nooo you are going backwards... and forgetting the clue. The name occurs in it's entirety in Wales and is part of a placename in one one of the ME Principalities ie Belfalas or Ithilien however it is quite distinguishable. No happening to have the same letters in there somewhere. If you want a hint consult the National Trust... Actually don't.. sorry I thought there was a NT property there but there isn't how odd

Amroth - a village in Pembrokeshire and part of Dol Amroth?

It wasn't in the lists of Welsh place names I consulted. I found it by working backwards.

Some good brainteasers there, Mith. Much kudos to Galadriel and The Saucepan Man and LadyBrooke for getting probably the trickiest ones.


1. Stately Elgar piece joins the Spanish and reveals her.
2. Gimlis father is disturbed, but gains direction for a flower.
3. Siren of French in a whirl for a lady.
4. One of the Professors names gains note and direction, but its scrambled before it gets to him.
5. Confused rain chart reveals this character.
6. Drain mirth in perturbation to find him.
