I did have Palantiri and Rings in it at one point, but not now.

Look at the Surrey names in the link that Morsul posted.

P: The most likely Surrey places from the map to be usable in a password look to be Woking and Dorking, and possibly Horley. Epsom is also a possibility.

'A' could be:
-A synonym for 'tear' split around a synonym for 'before' around a synonym for 'truth'.
-A synonym for 'tear' reversed, followed by a synonym for 'embracing truth'.
-Some combination of the above.

The fact that 'tear' and 'before' both have lots of meanings makes this even harder.

E: I really want this to end with 'hel', but that just throws up a lot of Eithel relatives, which isn't much help. I assume the start is either a synonym for or name of a kingdom, scrambled.

T: Two synonyms for 'reset', one of which starts with a T. Seems simple enough! Except I can't come up with anything. ^_^

I'm going to put two questions here; whether and how you answer them, Pervinca, is of course up to you.

1. Are there any straight clues left other than 'them' and 'here'?
2. Are any of the answers Tolkien-specific words, or are they English nouns?

T are something Tolkien loved. Several of them, in his books, have names. You only need one anagram. That's where you're going wrong! It's an anagram, not a synonym. One of the resets ('twice') is an ORDER to reset.

Basically, you need to reset 'reset!'

A was a way of covering rings, Silmarils, Palantiri and jewels/jewellery of any kind, and more besides.

And if I reset (like movable type) 'reset', I get TREES.

Tear, spun around a bit + 'truth' = ARTE-FACTS. I guess 'embracing' meant to push them together?

Indeed!

Two to go! And both are specifically Tolkien words/names.

Surprisingly close, but 'here' is the straight part of the clue.

Nice idea! But no.

Start with a synonym for GAMES, then use one of the Surrey towns. Not one that Huinesoron chose in his last post, though.

No.

I suspect Pervinca is thinking of P.E. (short for Physical Education, a lesson sometimes - particularly in secondary school - referred to as Games), but I still can't conjure an answer from that.

'Lose direction' could mean either an anagram, or dropping one of the direction letters from the Surrey town. The latter has been a complete dead-end for me so far, though.

It starts PE (short for Physical Education, as Huinesoron said).

All you do is add one of those Surrey towns on to PE, and then remove a directional letter. You don't have to mix anything up.

Not Dorking, Woking, Epsom or Horley (none of which make anything Tolkienian that I can see, added to PE or not). One of the others.

Okay. So 'here' is the straight clue; could it mean literally here?

EARTH begins with E, and things from Earth are used in passwords from time to time. But while H is the beginning of 'Hell', I can't make 'eart' an anagram of any kingdom.

The Barrow-Downs are in ERIADOR, which... nearly contains 'Dorado', as in El Dorado? I dunno.

Okay, so probably not here-here. What other places start with E? Um... actually quite a lot of places. ENDOR seems the most promising for the theme, but once again I can't fit it to the clue at all.

Find a synonym for KINGDOM and scramble it.

...

There is already one in the collection of guessed clues, albeit pluralised.

... well, you can almost get EMERALD from Realm + D, but I don't think the Emerald City is particularly close to Tirion, jewelled theming notwithstanding.

ELDAMAR, from REALM + DA(mnation)?

Correct. All done!

And over to Huinesoron!

P.S. Now wishing I'd made H horses (as there is no fauna covered, except for the human/speaking kind) and made the first P Pheriannath, as per one of Urwen's guesses. But I guess Peredhil covers the Half-Elven, which none of the other categories (singly) do.

That was an excellent password, Pervinca! Unfortunately the idea I had for the next one hasn't panned out (or rather, I'm too stressed to come up with clues for any of the words in it); I'll try and come up with another one.

Yeah, that was a pretty hectic weekend, but I finally have something for you.

1. - A dull pub between the rivers.
2. - I say: Oh sir! I hand this damp place (to you).
3. - An area, with trees.
4. - A little later, the shortened line of Italian nobles stands on the shore.
5. - By a slightly longer name, would still smell as sweet, and probably of holly.
6. - Big, purple, fancy glove - no, sorry, I misread, it's just a river.
7. - A cry of greeting over most of a thousand kilos of rabbits, just outside the door.
8. - You send, formally and pretty much, Latin cautions underground.
9. - A division without us? Normally after a short monster where the capital stands.
10. - Attila in bad French runs towards a haven.
11. - I am aged, I am off to bed, I am just west of here.
12. - In anger and the voice of the laws of Hell, name me a second time after the battle.
13. - Hell, Mike reversed into a pit and found the leader a step in.
14. - He stole ads? You'd never hear it once in the camp.
15. - A scrambled article, a stick, and a singular lens got turned around in the woods.


This may be of relevance.

1. Well, a FORSAKEN INN might be a bit dull.

P.S. Hope your week is more relaxing!

I can understand Maglor being weary and raddled after all this time, but he'd be very hurt to hear your appraisal of his pub karaoke sessions.

Is Deadman's Dyke between two rivers, and did you just think it sounded like a pub name?

O.o Um, no.

I mean, it totally does though. I'd have a drink there. (I wouldn't, but I would, if you know what I mean.)

(I don't know what I mean, so good luck!)

You're right with the Rose connection, but not with Rosie. There is a straight clue here as well (well... pretty much), and in all the clues for that matter.

10 Lhun Attila is generally known as Attila the Hun which could be rendered into French as l’hun. Lhun was the river that ran out to sea and The Grey Havens was near its mouth.

5 I can’t get beyond Eregion which I think literally means “of holly”.

Mith referring to Eregion has given me the idea that the 'area with trees' one is REGION.
