Question

Quote:

Well the only link that I can see between these two is that they were both shepherds.

So is it Shepherd of the Trees or Ent?

Question

Thanks Morsul. Although, for future reference, it's best to indicate a word in word clue by preceding it with something like "found in" or "hiding within".

Eg "Boy who cried wolf forgot what it looked like when hidden in vent."

A-n-y-w-a-y, the next clue is the previous one, which remained unguessed:

Head-line writer produces article for exiled king.

*sits back and waits for unadulterated silence*

I shall try Frodo

Frod is writing LOTR in the book...
and he offers the ring to Aragorn(I'm trying to remember if that was in the book as well.)

Or it could be Bilbo he wrote the Hobbit and he gave an article of clothin to Frodo who was master of Bag-End
master being a synonym*(SP?) for king

wow that completely destroys all my hopes of knowing it hehe so Sauron he was very well known and he was most likely a headline subject and he made to ring to serve his lord Melkos who was exiled from Valor

The Eye You are correct Morsul.

That is so wrong.

The only literal clue in the question is "head-line writer", although it's a tricksy one. The other elements are cryptic clues (and require a reasonable knowledge of twentieth century European history).

By the way, that lasy post was intended to provide a hint. But don't be put off if you know little of modern European history. You should be able to get it by thinking of a "head-line writer", but you will need to think a little bit laterally.

Nope, sorry. Not Sam either.

OK, here's a BIG hint. You have to think both laterally and literally. Who was literally a head-line writer?

Nope. Not Bilbo or Saruman.

OK, here are some BIG clues:

Think of a head line writer.

As for the cyptic clues, the article is grammatical in nature and the exiled king was South-East European in origin.

White-Hand Azog.

The "exiled king" was King Zog of Albania.

Azog wrote on Thrór's head.

Tricksy, Saucepan.

Thumbs up Bingo!

Well done, Nilpaurion.

Naughty of me, I know, to use an exiled Albanian king as part of the clue, but I do enjoy the occasional bout of tricksiness.

Sorry, Morsul. Better luck next time.

Take it away, Nil ...

Question Thank you, Saucepan the man!

Don'tcha worry, Morsul mah man, I'm-a lay it easy on you.

So there's this dude, an' he was, like, just waitin' for me, man, y'know what I'm sayin'? So then, I pass him, an' then he started shoutin' like crazy.

Photographic equipment without age is missing, man.

I just, like, say, "Whatevah, dude."

But the "photographic equipment" is general, not a specific brand.

Thumbs up Yes!!!

Camera (photographic equipment) - era (age) + lost (missing) = Camlost, or Beren.

Good job, Morsul!

Here's my cryptic clue perhaps to easy but I think it sounds cool

"deep into that darkness peering long I stood there wondering fearing doubting, for 20000 leagues under the sea that Cursed word repeated again and again and I began to wonder would this be my tomb?"

I used a a bit from Edger Allen Poe's the Raven for anyone that actually cares

Dark-Eye Sorry, Morsul.

I'm not learned in the lore of Pôe, so I can't answer.

And I'm already drowned in readings as it is . . .
