Nice password, G55!
Thank you! Yes, the "I never lie" is ambiguous out of context, and kinda sounds like the Oliphaunt is defending its honesty.

Wasn't it an ORC CHIEFTAIN who nearly made a Frodo kebab?

And is K CARAMAC... sorry, I mean KALIMAC?

Indeed - and, in Book 2, Merry surprises Gandalf by being on the right lines about the 'riddle' or instructions on the Door of Moria.

Caramacs are candy bars, and L's and R's are classed as liquids.

'Fierce enough, at need' is making me think of 'fierce as a dragon in a pinch', but that was Bilbo back in The Hobbit.

... OROPHIN, brother of Haldir? As in 'Horror Fin'?

'Orror-Fin, indeed. And I wouldn't dispute the fierceness of those Lorien archers.

One to go!

Okay, what do you brew? Ale and tea. And it...

...

...

-_-

If the brew keeps winning, is it on a T(ea) ROLL? I wouldn't be at all surprised if one of the Hobbit trolls made tea, and there might well be one in Book Two. (There certainly is in the film, thank you Boromir.)

There is a troll in Moria who gets Sting in his foot, and two others, I think, who lay slabs of stone for the Balrog to pass.

The one who makes the tea is the troll in 'Perry-The-Winkle.'

Over to Urwen!

1. Note a masterless samurai, and spin it for her.
2. Note one that gnaws, twice, in disarray? He appears.
3. Turbulently, those who deny reveal her.
4. An estimate gains direction. A twist reveals him.

Note one could be musical note plus A or I.

One that gnaws could be rat, dog, molar ....

'Twice in disarray' could mean add A or R.

Hmmmm.

Unless 'gnaws' refers to the 'cold hard lands tgat 'bites our hands' and 'gnaws our feet.'

Oh ... is it the troll who gnaws the bare old bone?

Or is it gnawer, or biter?

...

Agarwaen?

Gnawer + A (note) + A (occurs twice in 'disarray').

So 'disarray' serves two purposes in the clue.

I know. But I can't figure the password out, so there is nothing to make the clues any easier.

A masterless samurai is a ronin, apparently (I knew there was a word, but had to look it up). By the letters that follow it, the answer can't start with a vowel, so...

#1 NIENOR? With E as the note.

An estimate could be a guess, which seems fairly easy to spot - how many characters have both a G and a U in their name? But I can't spot it in any of the lists I'm generating...

If the password is NAE_H, what could that last letter be? It can't be a vowel. C, T, or S would make English digraphs with the H, while D would also work in Sindarin.

... NAEDH for the password, the Sindarin word for 'wound' according to Eldamo and Parma Eldalamberon. Though Aule only knows who that last answer could be. Deguss? Dugess? Dusseg? Probably not based on 'guess', at this point.

This synonym for 'estimate' is usually used to designate whether movies are suitable for children viewing them or not.

Rating.

But I can't get a character from that with any directional letter. I tried NE, NW, SE and SW too.

You forgot the two other 'direction' letters, ie. R and L.

Also, I am using yet another 'obsolete' name for a character here, that's why you might be confused. I considered using Tar-Miriel, but decided against it because she didn't fit my 'woe' theme as accurately.

No, I tried RATING with R and L too. And looked at some TARs.

...

Was TARLING a rejected name?

Alternatively, how about another password while we wait to hear about Tarling?

Also big kudos to Huey - I guessed it was an elvish word, but could not work it out until he found NIENOR and guessed NAEDH.

1. Most beautiful and beloved.
2. Troels gets mixed up with the horses? Well, it’s his job! We heard it in a song.
3. One of a quartet that we were bidden (in song) to give the right of way.
4. Deafening explosive reveals her in devastation.
5. Swamp where Ultravox have had a wee?
6. Anger is reversed? What a fuss on the way here, though!
7. Showboat time? Sing! But trade a flower for a tree to reveal him.
8. Two negatives: one French, one English, mingle circularly.
9. A Latin queen, initially? Add mixed stock to reveal him.

Let me see if I can guess the password without any letters provided.

Password: Book three

Also, I just remembered it was TARGLIN, not TARLING. *laughs at her own blunder*
