"Many names have these [the Seven Stars] been called, but in the old days of the North both Elves and Men called them the Burning Briar, and some the Sickle of the Gods."

Sickle of the Gods or Valacirca

Nardol was one of the signal beacons of Gondor, used to quickly spread a message or summons throughout the kingdom.

No, it would be the lamp of Gwindor. Tuor, Turin's cousin saw the lamp of Voronw.

As I brush away the dust in the back halls of the Quiz Room, I find a thread that is in my control. How silly of me!

Who were the Falmarindi?

The Falmari are the Sea Elves, those of the Teleri who went to Aman. I will guess, though I'm likely wrong, that Falmarindi is an early form for that same group?

Falmarni were the spirits of sea foam that followed Oss&nen(Uinen) to Arda. Is that the answer you are looking for?
