Silmaril Live!

Behold! The power of the Onodrim shall not forsake you! LIVE!

I make the 10 day rule sound fun
  1. He who brought that which would be revived
  2. The lands in which the stones were divided
  3. The cleaver that belonged to the reclaimer
  4. The last of his kind who gave shelter to the doomed.
  5. What Bombadil argues against Treebeard to be his

Ask away!

good guesses! good guesses indeed! no...for the actually answers

1. no, it isn't feanor.
3. Narsil is a close answers for #1. its not close for 3 though
2. Arnor is part of the answer. not in the name, but of what the name incompasses. oh wait...did i just make it too easy?
5. It's not old man willow. has nothing to do with the movies

Wow, cool. I think this is only the second Password I've ever got.

Here's my new one:

1. Oh Lord, what a holy song!
2. The G-Message loses two points and gets confused but stays anyway.
3. There is a tough man in most riders of the North.
4. Wanna-be Dragonslayer was a chicken!
5. Half an archer makes us blind.
6. The Master Smith is a Demon.
7. Captured Hobbit.
8. A man born inside a forest.

Well, I hope it's not too easy or too hard. Good luck!

1. Ents - Guardians sent hither and thither.
2. Stone of the Hapless - One that took her whom he shouldn't as lover
With the one who bore him, do I cover.

3. Gwindor - Like roaring wind or waves he charged and fought.
4. Angrist - Beheaded fellow, with grain for Sandyman, made a damaged weapon.
5. Ravenhill - Professor Spooner remembered this place as Shelter-Brook, though in truth one may be visited by birds there.
6. Orcrist - Alternatively that Old English poem would make a mighty sword.
7. Thingol - "Nothing old can stay," as the poet said, and so he proved.
8. Hithaeglir - Eighth lair about the mighty peaks.

Pipe The final clues solved

1: Ents

3: Gwindor. "Like roaring wind or waves...". He did indeed fight at the Nirnaeth Arnoediad.

6: Orcrist. Crist (Christ) is actually three poems, which cover major episodes in Christ's involvement with mankind: the Advent, the Ascension and the Day of Judgement. Christ I, actually a number of separate lyrics, may have been written by the poet Cynewulf; Christ II is signed by him, and Christ III has been argued to be his work, although this is a bone of scholarly contention.

All correct, and thanks for the info on Crist. Crist, I believe, is where Tolkien saw the word earendel and was inspired to write a poem about the voyage of Earendil.

NightKnight is up next.
