Nono, you're thinking the wrong way. Look on page 1 of this thread, SPM has made a good guide to Cryptic Clues.

I know I was merely hoping you used straight clues

Herumor?

Half an archer=her

her+umor= herumor

Eye That helps ...

Mr Myers -> Wayne -> Iarwain
Mr Affleck -> Ben
Mr Atkinson -> Blackadder -> Adder -> Adar

The whole = Iarwain Ben-Adar, aka Tom Bombadil, a fun clothed man.

Thanks Morsul.

No takers?

OK, here's a clue. The word "heard" is often used in cryptic clues to denote a "sounds like".

White-Hand A guess.

Peregrin Took.

The peregrine is a bird (in fact it's the fastest living thing), which sounds like the first name of our inquisitive fellow.

The "thousand" part is lost on me, though . . .

Well OK then, since this question might otherwise go unanswered for a long while.

1420! Explanation

Well I tried to post a picture of a seagull but that doesn't work on BD. And M (besides being a decent old movie) is the Roman numeral corresponding to 1,000.

"About" = scramble pointer; "swift ones" = swift fliers.

E: And "risers" might be considered a bit of a stright clue, in addition to being part of the anagram ("magic risers").

Eye OK, I've waited long enough ...

The answer is Crissaegrim.

An anagram of "magic risers", and home to Thorondor, King of the Eagles, and his kin.

Dear Lord... I arrived yesterday, so I read today 13 pages of cryptics... and then English isn't my native language... These are hard nuts to crack for a Dutchie. But giving up isn't a word I know...

Sorry for the interuption of the game... Keep them coming please!

If Nilpaurion Felagund isn't reacting I like to toss one in. I think I have made up a good one, but I don't seem to be able so solve any off these myself
