No more takers?

A hint:
The first paragraph: Two lines form a cryptic clue toward the person's name, and two give instructions on solving the second paragraph.
Second Paragraph: A clue toward the person's name, revealed by directions in the first paragraph.
Third Paragraph: Clue toward the person themself. This paragraph should be taken quite literally.

I can't shake the conviction that it must be a woman.

I've got the same feeling as Evisse.
Best I can think of is Niniel, the Tear-Maiden

No and No.
The best hint I can give is what I said before: The person's name is actually in the question. And yes, it is a woman.

I would say Aragorn but as it's not a major character...I'm stumped.

I'll take a wild guess at Beren (although I have no idea where that came from).

My last guess on this would be Arwen. (heart - when).

Great clue, by the way, Arestevana. You should join us more often in the Cryptic Clue thread. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

No, it is not Arwen.
Saucepan: Congratulations, would you like to go now? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Somehow I think all the other cryptic people are already on Cryptic Clues, seeing as how no one's getting this one and I can never figure one out over there. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I'm officially the stupidest person on these boards because I still don't get it!
[img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] Is it Nienna?
Mr Saucepan, sir, please don't leave us humble ones in the dark and tell us who the person is!

*sighs* Not Nienna.
Okay: The person's name is actually spelt out in the second paragraph. The last two lines of the first paragraph will show you where.

Actually, I got it by looking at the first letters in the second paragraph thing. I wouldn't have been able to get it your way, Evisse, so good for you! I don't have anything ready, so I'll just think on it until Arestevana confirms my answer.

Thankee much, Arestevana! This is probably waaaay too easy for you folks, but we shall see.

A namesake of precious metals,
He lived in the city, among the petals.
But before long peace met its horror,
They packed their bags and went to war.
But victory they could not defend,
He met the stunted father's end.
A reincarnation of himself,
I ask of you: Who is this elf?

[img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] Okay. It is entirely cryptic. There are no intentional clues toward the person themselves, only toward their name. You are only working with words and letters, not with LotR characters or anything. The biggest hint: Find a word that fits the definition. This is part of the name.

yay new quiz!

this'll be easy one

When the north failed, the victor was unguarded
When the south won, the victor was unguarded
When the king died, the victor was unguarded
When south came too north, the victor, which was unguarded, was slaguhtered and the south victor won teh crown, yet the true north, says the there linage is of kings and asks for the crown, they denied and the victor of south became king

Who is the Victor of South?
