I didn't think Emeldir the man-hearted was that obscure. At least she's named in The Silmarillion, and she must be in the Index as well as the family trees. As well as being the mother of a major character. I'm sure we've had similar "ancestry" clues before, and once you had the first letter I didn't think it would be too hard.

That said, I myself have forgotten much lore that I'm sure I once knew. I also very often stare at clues blind to the one element that will solve them.

I have adjusted the N clue - this is how I initially wrote it, but changed it thinking it was too much of a giveaway.

N: Confused lamentation rising from Ivrin's Pools.
ITHILBOR: Mix broth with liquid, adding two eyes, we hear, for the father of a mocker.
POROS: Muddled wild animal’s trail leads to a flower.
HAYSEND: Saruman’s symbol found around troubled affirmative in the Shire.
RHOSGOBEL: Equine creature and online entry mix together in a humble dwelling.
EMELDIR: Dreadful tree mingles for a half-elf’s ancestor.
D: Confused dwarf? Well, the chap has complex parentage.
IVANNETH: Terrible man finds way to join ancient character. It lasts about two fortnights.
L: Record sprinted in minor confusion for a First Age captor.

Oh it probably isn't. I was going to look up the genealogies but had a busy day yesterday and if I heard of Emeldir I hadn't linked it. I have always loathed the Beren andcLuthien story so it is probably just me. I know thecelvish side and Tuors parents.

I don't dislike the Beren and Luthien story (in fact I prefer it to Turin's, and Aldarion and Erendis), but my favourites in the Silmarillion are Fingolfin, Felagund and Fingon.

Hesitant stab at the last with Lorgan, Tuor's captor. It contains ran for sprinted but the rest I can't make work.

And when you record something you log it. LOG RAN with just minor confusion gives you LORGAN.

I agree. Mith's and Galadriel's passwords are brilliant, but the more players the better and everyone brings different angles to the game and keeps it buzzing.

Well, please yourselves, then.

1. The breaking of dawn before the sea reveals a rider
2. A confused cetacean takes to the air.
3. A great age for an excited fangurl.
4. This simple handcart can be quite funereal.
5. Too supple for a Shire holiday?
6. Quite a place, this forest, even if it doesn't sound like it.

I think a certain fangirl is eleventy-one?

Assuming barrow is also correct, I wonder if the password could be EREBOR?

Cetaceans are mammals, not birds, so 2 can't be Elwing.

Spoken like a natural!




Is the E clue Eomer? Something to do with Eos=dawn and mer/mar=sea?

Edit: oooh, and Region for R?

*Bows to Galadriel* - I thought the first clue was Eomer, but could only make the "mer" for sea part work. It's a very poetic clue, too, Nerwen!

Never even thought of Region - very clever clue.

As the only airborne creature in Tolkien's world beginning with R I could think of was ROAC (son of Carc), I worked backwards from that and tried some anagrams. Apparently ORCA is a term for the killer whale.

Roac it is!

Thank you, Nerwen!

Here's one I made earlier:

1. Innovative sea or river creature gets confused and lost on the Grinding Ice.
2. Scottish interjection and French greeting, flanked either side by the same direction for a mount.
3. Hush ordered between two optic organs, we hear, for an orcish preposition.
4. This world sounds more laborious (and perhaps not strictly drawing-room fashion).
5. Vaulted? Swallows liquid for a mount.
6. This great one of Keatsian fame could be rather rude and mercenary in the Shire.
7. Alternatively, this warrior telephoned (but there was confusion and displacement).

Yes indeed.

Yes to Elenwe; no to Aragorn. Your reasoning is close, though.

Elenwe: Innovative sea or river creature gets confused and lost on the Grinding Ice.
Rochallor: Scottish interjection and French greeting, flanked either side by the same direction for a mount.
3. Hush ordered between two optic organs, we hear, for an orcish preposition.
4. This world sounds more laborious (and perhaps not strictly drawing-room fashion).
5. Vaulted? Swallows liquid for a mount.
6. This great one of Keatsian fame could be rather rude and mercenary in the Shire.
7. Alternatively, this warrior telephoned (but there was confusion and displacement).

How about “Ragnor” for 7? (Same reasoning as Mith’s for Aragorn.)

Yes!

Elenwe: Innovative sea or river creature gets confused and lost on the Grinding Ice.
Rochallor: Scottish interjection and French greeting, flanked either side by the same direction for a mount.
3. Hush ordered between two optic organs, we hear, for an orcish preposition.
4. This world sounds more laborious (and perhaps not strictly drawing-room fashion).
5. Vaulted? Swallows liquid for a mount.
6. This great one of Keatsian fame could be rather rude and mercenary in the Shire.
Ragnor: Alternatively, this warrior telephoned (but there was confusion and displacement).

Having realised that sometimes a mount is literally just that...Dolmed? Domed including l for liquid?

Which leads me to guess Eriador for the password.

And have a stab at Ishi for the Orkish preposition. My knowledge of Black Speech syntax is hazy at the most optimistic but ishi is in the ring verse and is two eyes "I"s around SH!

Thumbs up

All right and reasoning correct.

"Ishi" is the "in" element of "in the darkness bind them," as far as I can make out. I went to a couple of websites to check it. (I can't remember which ones).

Odo? Can't get it to work properly but I associate Keats with odes and nightingales and urns won't fit.

Close, but not for the "ode" reason. The Keatsian reference is to a much less well-known poem, but a quick Google search would sort that out. I suppose Odo was rude to put his feet on the table, but I never heard of his being mercenary. With that in mind, working backwards might well help you - guess the hobbit and then Google for the Keats reference.

Yes, Otho Sackville-Baggins, with the Keatsian reference being to Otho the Great.
