Huinesoron has just left Hobbiton.
1. FAROTH - You might spy them from far off, but the hunters would see you first.
2. E - "He's red with wine," they slurred of Fingolfin before his death.
3. LADROS - Boys with German flowers in the mortal lands.
4. AMON RUDH - Turin held that it was quite rude of the sun.
5. GUARDED PLAIN - If those who love spelling are dead, plainly within this they'll see you coming.
6. UMBOTH MUILIN - Not a mere name: pool your thoughts, think in Sindarin, and dream of the sea.
7. N - Beneath the hills, Elvish, ancient, and French: the (not a) sun goes round.
8. DORTHONION - It sucks to have a lisp - the portal's on chloride before the night's shade.

:-/ I desperately need to start checking all the bits of my clues before I post them. In fairness, I was thinking of this carol, which definitely uses 'Ros', though it sometimes comes with an apostrophe.

Two to go!

NARGOTHROND for #6? "Go(e)th rond" for the "ancient" and "French" parts, but I don't get the "sun" part (assuming this is right). The rest would be the straight clue.

In Quenya, the sun is Anar. If you remove the first A ('not a'), you get Nar.

One to go!

It isn't, though it's pretty geographically close.

Correct! With "He's red with wine" heavily slurring to be a soundalike. (I see Nerwen actually guessed this one earlier... sorry, missed that!)

Inspired by the fact that, taking in the various places subject to him, Finrod's domains totally dwarf those of the High King and of Thingol.

Well done to everyone, and over to Nerwen.

Oh, it *was* that after all! At there I was thinking I'd misjudged you!

Ah, well, it's the quiet ones you have to watch (as we say in Werewolf).

... House Finwe Plays Werewolf was something I didn't know I needed.
  • Celegorm and Curufin are always accused of collusion - except when they actually are wolves together.
  • Orodreth is infamous for the time he drew Seer, yet still ended up voting with a confirmed wolf to lynch a confirmed villager.
  • The one time Idril played, the game ended on Day One; it turns out having an actual Seer present makes things rather easy.
  • Celebrimbor only ever hosts weird, off-the-wall variants. He says he's trying to perfect the rules, but it never seems to work.
  • Aredhel is always supremely confident in her suspicions. She's not often right, but by golly she's confident.
  • Finrod is actually worryingly bad at the game: he has a tendency to trust everyone, and is always surprised to be killed.

... I should probably take this to Mirth before I get carried away.

Not yet- I've been rather occupied the last few days, sorry. I'll get onto it!
