BREGALAD: Expeditious ray? He's quite translated!
OX: Between the eagle and the hart? O sing!
OROFARNE: Beloved tree.
KILLING: It's all the Uruk-Hai think about!

TREEBEARD: Ventilating equipment disappeared, we hear? Another who's quite translated.
HASUFEL: Luxuriant soul! Through chaos, see him.
R: Grishnakh's Nemesis (although why is anyone's guess).
EOWYN: Sorrow returns. Ask why. November begins. And there she stands.
EORED: A company who knows how to address a stag? After a fashion, and with (perhaps) a tone of regret?

For R, the answer is what led Grishnakh to his death, not what 'finally' caused it.

Yes, OX, from Treebeard's Lore of Living Creatures.

It's RINGLUST, but you can have it.

This next one is inspired by you. The password, limerick edition.

1. A mariner's food
2. I do not lie, for I am good
3. A dark path I travel, but I'll come through
4. I stayed up too late, did you know
5. The journey o'er the flowing sea us did include.


Warning: I am not liable for frustrations that may happen because of this puzzle.

Stars or stones, I guess?

It's nice to have a password based on the songs. I've wanted to do one, but couldn't think how to make it work.

I have done two in rhyming couplets, though.

And is E EOMER, from 'Out of dark, out of doubt, to the day's rising' or something similar?

No to Eomer either. There is a reason I've written 'dark path'. It's a named path. Or paths.

Certainly not as creative, but inspired by the rhyming scheme.



1. A set sun to guard against foes
2. A dog and a sharp mind that knows
3. One windy mountain
4. East of shadow a fountain
5. And backwards the true darkness goes


Enjoy!

Yes to Weathertop, no to Fornost Erain. The last clue is a bit different from the rest. I was not trying to group the towers by book or era or geography on purpose, but it just so happened that this one stands out alone.

No...

But I do believe that it will show up on Enc of Arda if you search the word tower - certainly if you search its Elvish variant.

Darn, I was wondering if it was a sneaky ECTHELION, for both the tower and the Lord of the Fountain.

Ecthelion would have been more creative than I had the energy for. I wish I thought of that.

To aid your search, look in Beleriand.

Thanks!


So I checked. Enc of Arda does not pop it up with a search for tower, but it does pop it out if you look for the Elvish term.

Urwen, it might help you to go systematically, because there very much is a tower that fits the clue. You know it's east of shadow and is related to a fountain.

Elvish term for tower is mindon, and if you search that, Mindon Eldalieva is all you get.

Yay! Another word for tower is barad, which would have lead you straight there. East of Ered Wethrin, near the Well of Sirion

1. TIRITH: A set sun to guard against foes
2. ORTHANC: A dog and a sharp mind that knows
3. WEATHERTOP: One windy mountain
4. EITHEL: East of shadow a fountain
5. RUD-DARAB: And backwards the true darkness goes


Over to Pervinca!

Pervinca Took is a guest of Tom Bombadil.
Ah, yes - found the meaning 'well, spring' in a footnote (was searching for the 'fountain' reference).

Good password!

Here we go again:

1. In German, I believe we will find him, if we lose a revolutionary leader, grasp the way and spin.
2. Dwarf gains a thousand for him, despite the turmoil.
3. Fair disgruntled, she is, and a little discombobulated too!
4. Well may you do this, in great perturbation, in his halls.
5. A confused astronomer will lead you to him.
6. See him where a muddled murderer meets a burning sphere returning.
7. Note fea in great trouble for him.
8. An evil look meets a little woman. She shakes it up.
9. For him, a ford and an eighties singer each lose direction, and meet.

1. Google translate says I believe is Ich glaube.
ICH GLAUBE - CHE = IGLAUB. + R and spin = BAUGLIR.
