Thumbs up

You've got it!

ERESTOR: To revive, counsellor's end becomes new beginning.
LEGOLAS: Building blocks? Near-maiden? Isn't he obvious?
VORONWË: Wander at this time, in turmoil, to find lost sailor.
EÖL: Feline is confused- but he is dark and perilous!
SERINDË: Meanwhile, antelope's cousin is tumbled about and suffused with evil. (No wonder she has a death wish).

Over to you.

Here you go ...

1. Is he just a mixed up loser?
2. Material for a sailor’s headgear, inspired by Eighties pop icon?
3. Chaotic rain reveals her.
4. Cattle sound changes vowel: spin and see her fly!
5. More agile blow in a whirl here.
6. Ancalagon’s brass instrument? A substance for a sailor’s weapon.
7. Sounds like a sick sailor, without hesitation. A lofty place, indeed.
8. Makeshift dwelling and large river combine for a maiden.

I think #3 and #4 are RIAN (anagram of "rain") and ELWING ("lowing" with altered vowel)? And is #8 LUTHIEN ("hut" + "Nile")?

But what is with all the sailors?

Is the answer by any chance EÄRENDIL?

Correct! Earendil is both password and theme. And I think you've answered your own question.

I know Luthien is only his grandmother-in-law, but I preferred it to another answer that was closer to Earendil but would only fit in backwards.

Silmaril

As I thought...

Then is #2 ADAMANT? (Eärendil's helmet. As for the other part- wasn't there somebody in the Eighties called Adam Ant?)

#5 must be NIMBRETHIL ("nimbler hit"), and I believe #7 is ILMARIN ("ill mariner" - "er").

And finally I guess #6 is DRAGON-HORN.

Nice clues!

Thumbs up Well done!

Elros: Is he just a mixed up loser?
Adamant: Material for a sailor’s headgear, inspired by Eighties pop icon?
Rian: Chaotic rain reveals her.
Elwing: Cattle sound changes vowel: spin and see her fly!
Nimbrethil: More agile blow in a whirl here.
Dragon-horn: Ancalagon’s brass instrument? A substance for a sailor’s weapon.
Ilmarin: Sounds like a sick sailor, without hesitation. A lofty place, indeed.
Luthien: Makeshift dwelling and large river combine for a maiden.

I made this password because I was peeved at not being able to fit more stuff from the Earendil song into my last one.

Well done, Nerwen! Over to you again.
