Not the best of clues, but I had a complete blank on how to clue 'dross'. So.

1420! A wild password appears

1. 'Tween the flower lacking an insect and a Faithful Easterling, a reversed note sits. A grandson is revealed.
2. An alcoholic liquor makes him endlessly sick.
3. A biblical sister returns without end. Hear the pronoun within. For him.
4. He went a long way and for a long period of time.
5. A returning rodent and a spinning dinosaur triggered an endless warning. He is revealed.

#2, I believe, is RUMIL (rum + il(l)).

3 could be TURIN - RUTH backwards plus IN (within). You can hear U (you) but you don't need to, because it's already accounted for.

I think 1 is CELEBRIMBOR.

BOR= Chief of the Faithful Easterlings.
IM = MI backwards.
CELEBR(ANT) = river (flower).

Famous grandson of Feanor. I wonder if they ever knew each other.

Have you heard of the pairing called 'Fallen Banners', by the way? That pairing is rather popular on teh interwebz, and I'm starting to see why.

Silmaril

Is #4 FËANÁRO (far + aeon)?

Is the password CRAFT?

(And no, I haven't heard of that pairing and I'm chicken to google it...)

Right

It's a pairing of Feanor's grandson and Fingolfin's grandson.

CELEBRIMBOR: 'Tween the flower lacking an insect and a Faithful Easterling, a reversed note sits. A grandson is revealed.
RUMIL: An alcoholic liquor makes him endlessly sick.
A: A biblical sister returns without end. Hear the pronoun within. For him.
FEANARO: He went a long way and for a long period of time.
T: A returning rodent and a spinning dinosaur triggered an endless warning. He is revealed.

And it's your turn to make a riddle as well.

If it's crafts, I guess A must be AULE, with LEA(H) and U.

I was expecting it to run backwards without mixing up.

Ruth (my previous guess for the sister) is I think a daughter-in-law, not a sister.

'Returning rodent' must be TAR-, and the best fit for the rest of the clue is dino + alar(m) = TAR-ALDARION, the shipwright.

1420!

1. Adding note to a vessel results in a failure to shed light.
2. An isle without water about it.
3. Flowers receive radiation. Sounds like it's a boy!
4. Exclamation from opening creates a tempest.
5. It stops everything from happening at once.
6. An unwise thing to do at the Mewlips' door!
7. One who has no need for bicycles.

6. Knock? (According to the poem).

3. Hwaet? Not sure about storm, but it has 4/5 of water ... perhaps it doesn't have to be from the *exact* opening of something, though.

7. Mr Bliss? He has a motor car.

#3. No.

#7. No.

#6. Yes, but I'm looking for an equivalent action to perform at a door... and the poem is oddly ambiguous about this.

Call?

2. Thinks an island is a MOUNTAIN

6. And slow and softly RINGs their bell

7. We only wish to catch a FISH

5. Give me more time! Give me TIME!

At which point I think I may have found myself a theme, so I may as well round it out:

3. SUN on the daisies it means, it does (= son)

1. The answer was all round him anyway: "DARK!" (D + Ark, and very appropriate for the black-themed Downs)

4. WIND, wind of course. (window - OW!)

If it weren't for 5 & 6 I could make the password RIDDLES (by taking 3 as 'sun on the daisies'), but it doesn't quite fit. Ah, no, it's ANSWERS, isn't it?

Nice password!

Was UIN strictly the island, though, or the whale moving it?

Thanks, Nerwen - that was fun! I don't think I would have got it if I hadn't started off by quoting poetry in my first couple of answers.

Well, let's try this:

1. A proper plural and archaic form gives the black its English name.
2. Named for their master in the blackened green.
3. Known by where and what it is, home of gold.
4. Belted and counted; look three from the back.
5. Fear halved, an elementary rise for the new king.
6. Elvish fire, depart! The hammer begins to be cast by the river.
7. Firearms - the evil in the north.

Maybe Meduseld for 3 ... mead-hall but also the golden hall?

6. NAR + GO ... is there a hammer called THROND?

Or maybe NAROG?

NAROG contains most of GROND... maybe that's the idea.

Yeah, I was in a rush (lunchtime). But I did think of Grond.

Wondering about FELAGUND for 5 .. FE + LA ... but can't account for 'gund' or 'rise.'

Dáin II, then? He was called Ironfoot and came from the Iron Hills, which could be an "elementary rise", I guess.

6. NAR + GO ... is there a hammer called THROND?

Or maybe NAROG?
No - but there's one called Grond, which can be changed to have the beginning of 'be cast' - ie, THrow.

'Elementary' is indicating that 'Fe' is iron, but rise is indeed the hills, which are the answer (they are themselves for Dain).

1. A proper plural and archaic form gives the black its English name.
2. Named for their master in the blackened green.
3. Known by where and what it is, home of gold.
4. Belted and counted; look three from the back.
IRON HILLS - Fear halved, an elementary rise for the new king.
NARGOTHROND - Elvish fire, depart! The hammer begins to be cast by the river.
7. Firearms - the evil in the north.

Oh come on - would I ever do something so crude?

No, but there is a reason so many of them are.
