Tolkien Oops

I thought "Merpeople" meant folks who dressed up in elven costumes and brandished wooden swords.

Excellent puzzle!

Why of course it is...

Relisted questions and answers:

1. Goblin-Cleaver = there’s one for meat, and one for scrambling the short world contained.

2. Legolas = young lady lawyer takes a shot in the dark

3. Iris = Deep purple sword-bearer of Ithilien

4. Nessa = Ye gods! It's Elton John’s single sensational sister

5. Gildor = Airy entrance for merpeople, and "well met" at that

6. Amon Ereb = Beer Mona! I’ve been lonely far too long.

7. Labadal = Boy precedes one small ball walking backwards.

Only one more...

And since it's hard, and not a very good clue, here's a mini guide to solving it.

Shorten a synonym for "world" add a synonym for "contain", scramble.

That gives you part 1 of a hyphenated word. The other part of the word often follows "meat" in the same hyphenated fashion. As in, "meat-__________"

The first part may be Goblin - a small globe + in, scrambled - but I can't think of a word that follows both "Goblin" and "meat".

White-Hand Piggybacking again

"Cleaver" would be just such a word Turambar, so the answer must be Goblin-cleaver (aka Orcrist).

You've got it!

Between the two of you, at least.

But either way, the thread goes to Nilpaurion now that all the clues have been solved.

Question OK, here is it!

1. Star namer's wife confused with first universe Ainu.

2. Landed boy before starless diminutive king?

3. Iceman and Batman first name presently demolished home.

4. My first bread, boy!

5. Jewelry befuddle, maul grain.

Have at it!

Eye Having at it ...

#5 Jewelry befuddle, maul grain.

"Maul grain" unbefuddled is Nauglamir, an item of jewelry.

Edit: Cross-posted with Sophia (just to avoid any further accusations of piggybacking ).

This is easier than I thought--which is already quite easy.

Oh, well. I just thought it up on the way to school.

On the way to Downs, perhaps you mean.

School, Downs--ain't that the same thing?

And you expect to get that degree in European Languages . . .

Tolkien Hinting . . .

1. Ainu. For "Star-namer", see Silm.

2. "Landed" means a land in the past. "Diminutive king" is a clue I used once on this very thread.

3. Place. You must find a guy who played both Iceman and Batman, then get his first name. Then find out where to put that with the rest of the clues.

If more hints are needed, more guesses are required.

Question

#3 Valinor, or Valmar?

Though I admit I don't see how "presently demolished" fits in.

Question "Valmar" is correct.

1. Star namer's wife confused with first universe Ainu.

2. Landed boy before starless diminutive king?

3. Valmar - Iceman and Batman first name presently demolished home.

4. Ibūn - My first bread, boy!

5. Nauglamir - Jewelry befuddle, maul grain.

~*~

"presently demolished" -> present tense of "marred" -> mar.

I shall guess Ladros again! But I think I have it for real this time.

#2: Ladros

- A boy is a lad.
- Diminutive sounds like Tar-Minyataur, aka Elros, a king. Take away the "el"= star and you are left with ros.
- Thus I got Ladros, a land of old.

Question Encai, it *is* correct!

1. Star namer's wife confused with first universe Ainu.

2. Ladros - Landed boy before starless diminutive king?

3. Valmar - Iceman and Batman first name presently demolished home.

4. Ibūn - My first bread, boy!

5. Nauglamir - Jewelry befuddle, maul grain.

Vy ze vay, the password is initial letter-anagrammatic. Or whatever better jargon I could come up with . . .

Is the "star namer" Oromė, because he named the eldar?

The "star" is really a star, albeit a weird one.

White Tree

Idril as the "star-namer's wife"? I would assume that Tuor named Earendil...

Tolkien Clarification/s.

"Star-namer" is not one who gives name to a star. It was the one who said that there shall be a new star.

Oh, and initial > first for the last/first clue.

The password requires de-anagramming.

White-Hand

In that case, I think Arien is the Ainu, being Rķan confused with the first letter of .

Which makes the Password either Alvin, the Chipmunk of Valinor, or perhaps vilna, the troposphere in BoLT 1?

Thumbs up Sharp, Turambar!

1. Arien - Star namer's wife confused with first universe Ainu.

2. Ladros - Landed boy before starless diminutive king?

3. Valmar - Iceman and Batman first name presently demolished home.

4. Ibūn - My first bread, boy!

5. Nauglamir - Jewelry befuddle, maul grain.

All three of your answers are correct!

Present the next conundrum!

Eye Thanks, Nilpaurion - Good Puzzle!

Here's a new one:

1. A letter returned to a Greek goddess (memory’s daughter!) becomes something that (in M.E.) only hobbits build.

2. "Flower" that decorates Rohan.

3. Bedlam began on the 27th, when he spoke in tongues.

4. Sat aimless about the silent fallen one in the woods?

5. What may be passed by the irresponsible, when aged, became a local leader.

6. Suffered an exophthalmic demise.

7. Taverns around the heedless one's original home?

No, it can't.

#2 is not a flower.

I've edited some of the clues.

Erm . . . shouldn't it be "flōwer"? Entwash?

5. Haldad?

Eye

Not the Entwash, though you're on the right track. There is a sort-of-pun in #2 (on the name of the "flower").

#5 - like all the clues in this puzzle except #6, perhaps - is cryptic . You have to ask yourself, "what is passed by the irresponsible?" Or, inversely, what do responsible people not pass?

White Tree

Not Shelob.

Reminder: around and about are scramble (anagram) indicators.

I hope I didn't kill this thread . . .

Here are some hints:

1. A Greek letter. Which Greek goddesses were the daughters of memory?

2. "Flower" = river. There's a pun in the clue on the river's name.

3. Tengwar.

4. "About" = scramble pointer.

5. What do responsible people not pass?

6. Look up "exophthalmic" An evil character in LotR died this way.

7. "Around" = scramble pointer.
