Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
NOLIMON: Nay, a fruit! Switch a vowel for him.
ULBAR: We hear you took a direction to a tavern, but found him instead.
MIRIEL: Finwe's daughter gains a path, for her.
ELATAN: A backwards story and an article? See him!
NUNETH: A religious woman and a fractured article form her.
ORROSTAR: McCulley's hero loses head, but gains a heavenly body. This place is revealed.
ROMENNA: A girl returns to a city, or is it a harbour?

Password & Theme: Numenor

And over to Pervinca.

Had this one planned for a while, but have only just now found time to write the clues for it. Hope you like it.

1. See him where the deer runs back and the alder wood begins.
2. This thing seems to lisp about where some random bloke has been supine!
3. ‘Mere nothingness!’ He’s in Angst, sure, or turmoil at the least, but is he really such a nihilist?
4. Someone who complains when fasting will really come unstuck here.
5. Here, a healthy water meadow meets Meduseld, perhaps.
6. ‘Alternatively, be gracious here,’ we heard.
7. A bad experience with caviar in the North? Well, somewhere. It’s appalling.
8. A biblical dude and an Amsterdam bloom get together – cacophonously – to trumpet its presence!
9. Desire good opinion here, despite losing an article in transition?
10. Here comes an equine hybrid carrying stoat furs? Sounds like it … pretty much.
11. Here, with a cruel, gloating shout, they ended the Maid of Orléans - give or take a couple of vowels.
12. Mixed rag hats are his style, perhaps?

#1: a deer could be a HART, which we can run back to get TRAH + ALD = a Smeagol by any other name (would still smell of fish).

#10... I think stoat fur is ERMINE, and the one real equine hybrid I know is a MULE... getting them in that order takes me right to the EMYN MUIL.

Indeed ... did you use 'hart' as an element in your own Trahald clue, not that long ago?

Yes. It's gracious to thank people, so OR plus a 'heard' THANK.
