Right, at least we've gotten somewhere. Someone, anyone, care to take a shot? I'm far too mentally exhausted to deal with Elenrod's nasssty, trickssssy password. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Is the Password a Scramble (anagram) of the first letters, or something else?

Stupid, fat password. If it's not an anagram of the first letters I've been wasting a lot of time. As far as I can tell they don't make anything. My brain is fried. [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

The password letters look like A GERTHA (a rune)

It's not an anagram...it's something like transposition...you know, like, shifting... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

This Password is fading. How about a better description of what "transposition" means ? I tried moving forward or backward one letter (R becomes S or Q, E becomes F or D, etc.); that doesn't work.

OK, maybe "transposition" is the wrong technical term...the clues are in the exact same position, but the password is hidden in another place, away from the initial letters. It's in a straight line...

There! *points at monitor* Do you see it? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Angainor? The chain that bound Morgoth?

Wow! There's another word there? Angaino's there, too? An oversight on my part.

By the way, it's wrong! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Hmm.... since I'm not exactly feeling up to the challenge, after a brain-numbing Password like that, mine is going to be remarkably easy. So, in the interests of all, I'm going to defer my right to a better person. (In layman's terms, someone else can go.)
