Well, I'll hazard a guess here, half laughingly:

#1 Museums? The hobbits had one at Michel Delving, as far as I know they were the only ones. Memory's daughters were the Muses... but there's no Greek letter "Um"

Aged is old.

So the answer must be Oldbuck.

Sorry for the consecutive posting - working these out as I go.

Quote:
7. Taverns around the heedless one's original home?
Assuming that the heedless one is Turgon, who did not heed Tuor's warning, his original home was Nevrast, an anagram of "Taverns".

I'm guessing that the Password is Mallorn.

Thumbs up All three correct!

Thank you, Saucepan Man. FYI, Radbug's eyes were squeezed out (hence, "exophthalmic").

Eye Whoops - here I go again.

Which makes #2 Adorn - a river and a synonym for "decorate".

MALLORN is the Password, and Nevrast is correct for #7.

Contained within "Bedlam began" is Lambe, which means tongue and is (I assume) the 27th symbol of the Tengwar alphabet.

Correct again.

The last one is perhaps a bit obscure, but it's in LotR and, as I said, is a scramble.

EDIT: perhaps felled would be more accurate than fallen.

Question And now for something completely different ...

Thank you Turambar.

A bit different this one. Each clue is made up of the first letter or letters of a word or phrase associated with a number. You need to solve each clue to find the number associated with it. To give a non-Middle-earth example, if the clue were HITD this could stand for Hours in the Day, in which case the answer would be 24. All the clues below are Middle-earth-related.

Once you have all the numbers, you need to add them all up to produce another number. The password is the clue that would be associated with this answer (ie the first letter(s) of a word or phrase associated with it).

Are you still with me? Oh well, let's see how it goes.

1) RFEK
2) ROTW
3) SOF
4) BR
5) TOV
6) HOTE
7) GOG
8) FS
9) S

Fire away!

White Tree guesses

#1 RFEK-> Rings for the Elven Kings (under the sky), 3?

#3 SOF -> Sons of Feanor, which would be Seven?

#6 HOTE -> Houses of the Edain, 3?

#9 S -> Silmarils, 3?

White Tree More guess?

#4 BR -> Black Riders, 9?

#2 ROTW -> may either be Rulers of the World? (in which case I'd say 1, Manwe or Eru), or Rulers of the West? (in which case I'd go for 9, the Aratar)

The numbers I'm totalling up now (minus my weird guesses for number 2) = 34. Inclusive of my weird guess for 2 = 43. I'm wondering whether the secret total number might be 50, the age of Bilbo and Frodo at the beginning of their respective journeys? (AOBAF -> Age of Bilbo and Frodo? )

Saucy, don't quite know what kind of format you're looking for as a password.... of course, don't know if my guesses are right either

Thumbs up Correct answers so far:

1) Rings for Elven-kings = 3
2) ROTW
3) Sons of Feanor = 7
4) Black Riders = 9
5) Trees Of Valinor = 2
6) Houses Of The Edain = 3
7) Gates Of Gondolin = 7
8) FS
9) Silmarils = 3

Glad to see that you've got the idea.

To use my previous example, if the numbers added up to 24, the Password might be HITD (Hours in the Day).

You have to get the correct letters.

Thumbs up That'll do!

Turambar, I think that I should give it to you or this could go on for a while. My answer was KBG (Kills By Gimli), which was incorporated in your last two answers.

So the thread is yours.

Although it was a close thing with Enca.

Question "We like a challenge"

Ok, then. All cryptic:

1. SHAGRAT - (Mordor’s tobacco enthusiast?)
2. ORALD - (Rohan’s old one got confused, and became an enigma by another name.)
3. His glee curable, the warrior composed an elegy to his friend.
4. MANDOS - (What will Man do subsequent to death - did even this one know the answer?)
5. His eye sees Teleri from out the dim past,
The first rider, we know, is one that must fast,
His lore less arcane than wizards forbode,
His might, as if Denethor on Gil-galad rode.
6. TIW - (Even with his backward intelligence, he invented letters.)
7. HASUFEL - (To answer your question, No, I hasn’t – the horse bore me aloft.)

---------------------------

Question

Quote:
1. Mordor’s tobacco enthusiast?
"Shag" is a kind of tobacco and I suppose "rat" might be another word for an enthusiast, producing Shagrat, an Orc of Mordor.


Quote:
2. Rohan’s old one got confused, and became an enigma by another name.
Taking the "R" from Rohan and "a" (ie one) and mixing them with "old" gives Orald, another name for that well-known enigma, Tom Bombadil.
