Oh, yeah, it's all in the Hostetter book.

#3 is your regular straight+cryptic, classic Password clue.

Correct! If you can figure out why, it might point you at the last two.

Maybe the theme is seven. There are seven gates of Gondolin, among which are the gate of GOLD and the gate of WOOD*. There are seven gems made of ADAMANT in the crown of Gondor. There are seven Dwarven ring-bearers and seven forefathers, and dwarves used AXES (there are also seven Balrogs - according to Tolkien - who also used axes).

(*Take a guess on who built them.)

Is 'stonework' a straight clue?

So: what pulls you (from the mud)?

Or: what verb could mean 'to pull you from the mud', and what would the noun form of it be?

Drag is the closest. Add that to the river and you get Isengard. And its stonework is Orthanc. So Orthanc?

It's not drag, and there's no river in the clue. Also the answer starts with T.

The mud is not significant, except as a thing you might be pulled from.

So work through some verbs for pulling, and consider some nouns that could be related to them. For example, 'drag' might make you think 'dragon', but dragons are not stonework.

My mention of rivers was a reference to river clues in Password, and how they're often presented.

There it is!

GOLD - No, I don't mean Alternate Universe - Sixth gate - Gold
AXES - Weapons on which graphs turn (these ones are red) - Third gate - Bronze (guarded by axemen)
TOWERS - Stonework that pulls you from the mud - Second gate - Stone (surmounted by towers)
EAGLE - Number one deus ex machina (now featuring heavy metal) - Fourth gate - Writhen Iron (with an iron statue of Thorondor)
WOOD - I would tell you the answer, but -- just a second. - First gate - Wood
ADAMANT - Air is to corundum as water is to...? (Now, about that crown.) - Seventh gate - Steel (surmounted by the Crown of Gondolin, surrounded by diamonds)
YEW - You! Yes, you! Fire! (& look up into the light) - Fifth gate - Silver (guarded by bowmen, and surmounted with an image of Telperion

Theme: The Seven Gates of Gondolin

Over to you!

Mostly Turgon, I believe, though Maeglin added the last one after the Nirnaeth. The part where he used it to declare that the Crown of the Hidden Kingdom was more important than the Powers or the Two Trees might, in retrospect, have been something of a hint.

6/ BEREN, ERCHAMION, or MAEDHROS?

9/ ... LUTHIEN? With the 'other name' being the nightingale, which sings at Twilight?

#9: Apparently Collins wrote The Woman in White, which says AREDHEL to me.

#3: The most obvious option here is HAMFAST GAMGEE (aka the Gaffer).

I made a mistake, so you get a freebie

MORWEN: Dark lady.
2. He has a punny name.
3. TOLMAN (I messed up the clue...again...)
4. Unwilling captive.
BEREN: One-handed.
6. He would do well at Olympics.
LILY BROWN: Shares first name with Harry's mom and surname with his classmate.
LUTHIEN: Her other name is associated with Meyer's book title

I guess that's what happens when you're sleepy.....

Ah, father of a future deputy mayor, then. In a fine example of nepotism, Sam tapped his wife's brother to stand in when he popped down to Gondor. ^_^

So... I think I see the theme. Therefore:

#4: HURIN (husband of Morwen, definitely an unwilling captive)
#2: IMRAZOR (the clean-shaven Numenorean), because
Password: MITHRELLAS.

Which suggests #6 EOL would do well in the Olympics... oh! It's javellin-throwing, isn't it?

And so #10... SPOUSES?

Oh, and the riddle answers was javelin, by the phrase 'stick 'em with the pointy end', which originated in GOT. If you really thought about it, you could've gotten it.

Sorry, busy weekend, I've just this second finished writing the password.

Thanks for the last one! Some fun names to puzzle over there.

For this Password, the password letters are all the second letter of the answer as written. (Not for any particular reason, except that I needed the letters.)

1. - I add underclothing, and there are four.
2. - The most powerful will shortly share the way to unlock.
3. - He, or won't he?
4. - A dwarven house has lost its supports (architecture) and gained support (attire), and married a remarkable woman.
5. - The second half of the Millennium follows a ruddy fruit in full.
6. - #87, do (it) backwards, #8 - a chemist's hero.
7. - Not old, not drunk - just the first deer.
8. - Run back, flinger of treasure! Your son is more famous than you.
9. - Most of a frond overshadows partial shadows in a mother's domain.
10. - Higher than Odo is a Welshman discovering America.
11. - Too grim to guard, a digger and the first after the old.
