For 14, Miner+Dune?


Oh wait, Dune + Dain (Ironfoot) = Dunedain.

15. A potato is a spud, and if we change dental D to plosive B, and mash it (), we can get PUBS.

And sticking with the pub theme... #5: Wetherspoons is a very generic pub chain. If we remove the letters for 'others', we get 'wepons'... add that final article for WEAPONS.

And for 22 (which I had to try, given ions)... disadvantages, declare, by, charged atoms = CONS + TELL + AT + IONS = CONSTELLATIONS which are very shiny.

1. Games and a Surrey town lose direction for them.
2. One may mither a ewe’s consort, (slowly at first), to see them.
3. They sound like the transgressions of a Shakespearean thief.
SHIPS: They pass in the night.
WEAPONS: For these warlike things, a generic British pub gains an article, but loses others.
ORCS: A murder of them disperses and loses direction. But the end result is still pretty murderous!
7. Concerning charity, they stand clear.
8. A good war vest reveals them.
9. They type backwards, swallowing a very Welsh beginning.
HOBBITS: They are parts for a cooker top.
11. For these flowers, a weaver loses an article and is conflicted between two ways.
12. Delve safely to find them. Go on!
AINUR: Rian, you hear, was conflicted about them.
DUNEDAIN: For them, see the dwarf of the sand mountain appear.
PUBS: Mashed potato turns dental to plosive for these.
16. Tear around before embracing truth for them.
17. Ancient fortress returns for refreshment.
18. Here is a kingdom in disarray, with endless damnation.
19. Reset (twice) and see them.
WIZARDS: Hospital rooms swallow endless zip for them.
21. Confused but giving person sings backwards for them.
CONSTELLATIONS: Disadvantages declare, by charged atoms, their shining name.

Well done.

I still think 8 and 12 are easy ones.

11. If we take the A from Vaire, scramble her up and stick her between East and Down, we get 'Everid', which is very nearly EVERMIND.

I am confused. Huinesoron's idea works, but it's still incorrect, and nothing else seems to fit.

Wait. Shamelessly piggybacking on Morsul's reasonings, how about 'Password thread is now cc' for the password?

No. Huinesoron was closest, with his first guess.

Why not try guessing those final clues?

I intend to take a stab at it (though with nearly half of them unguessed, I don't think 'final' is fair), but first...

No.

They are all things we use as answers in passwords, except for one that is another thing we use to make them, like anagrams.

Think of all the things that have names, and that we use as answers.

#3 is surely SYNONYMS, which sounds like "sin o'[nyms]". I assume the missing word is a Shakespearean character, but I can't place it.

#7 I think starts with RE (as in 'concerning'), but can't come up with a charity word to follow it.

#9, the Welsh beginning could be LL or even LLAN, but what could go around it?

Aaaand can I try:

PASSWORD·THREAD·PAGE·TWO·C?

What I take to be the straight clues suggest that 11 ('these flowers') and 17 ('for refreshment') should be the easiest, but what could they be?

#11: ... oh wait, flowers, this one catches me every time. RIVERS = Right + VaIRE + South.

As for 'refreshment', I'm still no further.

Sin o' Nym's.

(Nym is a thief who appears in (I think both) Henry IV plays and in Henry V (he dies at Agincourt, I think - offstage, but given that his mate Bardolph was hanged for robbing a church, he possibly spent most of the battle thieving from corpses - the Branagh film gives this interpretation, anyway).

The name 'Nym' is derived from an Old English verb which is cognate with modern German 'nehmen' (to take), kind of indicating that he takes/half-inches things. He is friends with Falstaff, Pistol (the only one to survive to the end of Henry V) and Bardolph.

LL is the Welsh element you want.

RE is indeed the 'concerning' element.

What's a slang word for refreshment?

It's one of the towns marked on that map. But I wasn't being smart. I once lived in a small town/much enlarged village (England is full of these) very close to it. We did a lot of shopping there and it's where my brother's school was.

T: TROLLS = sort (type) + LL


For the other T I can't help thinking that you have to scramble "twice", but neither that nor its synonyms are working.

Oh. *facepalm*

R = REALMS: re + alms.

I had both elements but for some reason couldn't put them together.


Also, by the way - however you got "weapons" from "Wetherspoons" is very impressive.

It means that you have to 'reset' twice. 'Twice' here actually means 'in two different ways.' I know the word 'twice' doesn't mean that, but I think the sense of the clue still works.

Yes, I was being crafty with the other meaning of 'type.'

It was Wetherspoons + a - others.

P: Games and a Surrey town lose direction for them.
ANAGRAMS: One may mither a ewe’s consort, (slowly at first), to see them.
SYNONYMS: They sound like the transgressions of a Shakespearean thief.
SHIPS: They pass in the night.
WEAPONS: For these warlike things, a generic British pub gains an article, but loses others.
ORCS: A murder of them disperses and loses direction. But the end result is still pretty murderous!
REALMS: Concerning charity, they stand clear.
DWARVES: A good war vest reveals them.

TROLLS: They type backwards, swallowing a very Welsh beginning.
HOBBITS: They are parts for a cooker top.
RIVERS: For these flowers, a weaver loses an article and is conflicted between two ways.
ELVES: Delve safely to find them. Go on!
AINUR: Rian, you hear, was conflicted about them.
DUNEDAIN: For them, see the dwarf of the sand mountain appear.

PUBS: Mashed potato turns dental to plosive for these.
A: Tear around before embracing truth for them.
G: Ancient fortress returns for refreshment.
E: Here is a kingdom in disarray, with endless damnation.

T: Reset (twice) and see them.
WIZARDS: Hospital rooms swallow endless zip for them.
ONODRIM: Confused but giving person sings backwards for them.

CONSTELLATIONS: Disadvantages declare, by charged atoms, their shining name.

THEME: A CELEBRATION OF 200 PAGES OF THE PASSWORD THREAD.

I wanted to have STARS rather than constellations, (because we've made more clues about individual stars), but I really wanted SYNONYMS and SHIPS in it, so I settled for constellations.

I wanted TAVERNS, but settled for pubs so we could have TROLLS (Bill, Bert and their mate) and ... the other one.

And I originally had WARGS, but then I thought of passwords about SWORD names etc, and I had chosen SWORDS, but then realised I wanted SHIPS (Morsul had just done boats, and I believe Huinesoron once did ships too) as well as SYNONYMS. So SWORDS became WEAPONS.

I couldn't honour every category, but I tried to choose ones of which we have used lots of named examples.

I think this is a brilliant password, and a fantastic tribute to a thread that is now old enough to drink (under certain circumstances).

I've finally figured out G: a Burg is a fortress, and a refreshment is GRUB.

Grub indeed! (I did food passwords, but I think Morsul did one first).

Glad you like the password, Hs.
