You need to work out what Tom's accumulation might be
What does Tom accumulate?

I dunno. Hobbits, maybe?

It does say the accumulation was small, after all.

And if that were so, his collection of hobbits would include each flower. Umm... "ea" for each-> eaflower, rearranged-> leaf ower. Did one of the hobbits owe somebody pipe-weed?

Question Any more takers ...

Nope. Nothing to do with Hobbitses.

There is a clear reference in the Book to Tom accumulating something other than lilies ...

Mallos, I think:

Tom was a moss-gatherer, as Gandalf tells us. His small accumulation is therefore MOS; if it includes ALL ("each"), we get the bell-shaped flower of Lebennin.

Excellent clues!

Not Elendil, and not a man.

This one is both cryptic and "straight".

Eonw

It's right there in the clue:

Quote:

And, of course, Eonw was a teacher as well as the leader in that battle.

1420!

Ecthelion?

The name was used by a Ruling Steward of Gondor as well as by an elf of Gondolin; the latter was associated with a fountain ("wet").

before you start hinting. Sometimes we have to think about it a little first.

Believe you me, we're pondering.

White Tree out on a proverbial limb

I'm tempted to go with Feanor. I can't make any sense of the clue cryptically, but as far as straight clues go, Feanor was certainly hot-headed. And earth driven too, if you think about his love for things mined and then crafted.

The one style clue makes me think of the Tengwar, which were developed by him, and were written in several styles (the Quenya style which used no vowel letters, just tehtar; and the Sindarin sound which incorporated letters for vowels).

My first guess would have been Feanor....but as Gil said "around Feanor", I'm thinking perhaps

Melkor,

Who could be described as hot-headed, and as earth-driven, he sought to dominate the world...

Maybe a hint is needed.

Are the clues cryptic within The Saucepan Man's definition?

Maedhros?

"Hot-headed" may be seen as red-headed.

"Earth-driven." Try Earth-diving.

Nil is correct, it was Maedhros


A Hot-headed Earth Driven Rascal, One Style Maybe, are you?


basically i used it in Pig Latin...that explains the a and the y

the one style means that he was the only son to try and go for peace, his style of doing things was much different then each other son...your turn nil
