Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
AULE: He is a lord of two metals, mixed up.
IRMO: Briefly, a gentleman returns, within Jupiter's moon, for him.
NIENNA: A confused female goat reveals her.
ULMO: A light-conjuring spell loses direction, in a spin, for him
RADAGAST: Slightly confused male deer meets a returning Elvish father, for him.


And Morsul wins the right to make the next round.

Another not first letter puzzle. This particular puzzle is all very obscure(especially for me).However I Think once one or two are discovered the rest will be easy.

1. Skateboarding prankster gets disoriented within a sound sensor.
2. There’s a big cat interviewing for a job. If they get the job it’ll be a big mix up
3. My friend, Mr. Eckhart, who played Harvey Dent, is sailing.
4. Herzog tells me this feathered appendage very much floats.
5. A truncated prison story being followed by Burgandy is in this Spiegel article

1. EamBar
2. HirlOnde
3. PalArron
4. VingiloT
5. AlcarondaS

A guess at Wingelot for 4. Wing for the feathered appendage. For Herzog I found a Werner Herzog, but couldn't make the connection.

You’re only a couple letters off. Herzog is known for a particular trait.

Vingilot? With German-sounding W implied by Herzog?

Wikipedia tells me Herzog makes films about people with impossible dreams or extraordinary talents. What aspect of him does the clue allude to?

Could the password be boats? (Although I don't know of any other named ones ... maybe Aldarion's, but I've forgotten it!)

If it IS boats, though, Tol Eressea could be one of the answers!

It really just meant to put a German accent on Wing and get “ving” it’s a running gag that German accents are just caricatures of Herzog.

I think 5 is ALCARONDAS, because ALCA is ALCATRAZ truncated.

Spiegel is mirror in German, I think? Is it also a German newspaper?

Alcatraz + Ron Burgandy + Das Spiegel(yes it’s a German newspaper worked with the journalist angle)

Don't know much about skateboarding pranksters, but I guess whatever it is must lie between the EA and R of EAMBAR.

Aaron is Mr Eckhart's first name?

(Looks it up).

Ah, indeed it is.

I have the next password planned, and will write the clues as soon as I can.

Here you go:

1. Games and a Surrey town lose direction for them.
2. One may mither a ewe’s consort, (slowly at first), to see them.
3. They sound like the transgressions of a Shakespearean thief.
4. They pass in the night.
5. For these warlike things, a generic British pub gains an article, but loses others.
6. A murder of them disperses and loses direction. But the end result is still pretty murderous!
7. Concerning charity, they stand clear.
8. A good war vest reveals them.
9. They type backwards, swallowing a very Welsh beginning.
10. They are parts for a cooker top.
11. For these flowers, a weaver loses an article and is conflicted between two ways.
12. Delve safely to find them. Go on!
13. Rian, you hear, was conflicted about them.
14. For them, see the dwarf of the sand mountain appear.
15. Mashed potato turns dental to plosive for these.
16. Tear around before embracing truth for them.
17. Ancient fortress returns for refreshment.
18. Here is a kingdom in disarray, with endless damnation.
19. Reset (twice) and see them.
20. Hospital rooms swallow endless zip for them.
21. Confused but giving person sings backwards for them.
22. Disadvantages declare, by charged atoms, their shining name.

I don't know how to proceed from here. Which clues should I try to solve first?


(Also, this password is big, really big)

Yes, but you don't have to solve it all by yourself!

Try whichever clues take your fancy.

Not ALL will be obviously Tolkienian at first, but there is a good reason for this, which I will not disclose now because it would spoil the puzzle. But some are, and it will all make sense in the end.

I considered 'Curse of Morgoth' for the password, but it's too short for the number of clues.

Good idea, given the letters guessed so far, but it's not a curse of any kind.

Ok. So. 22 a charged atom is an ion. Ion is used as a Quenyan suffix a shining name could refer to the sun Anárion? I can’t get the first half though. I’m also worried it’s wrong because most of these clues imply multiples which would perhaps I indicate the last one should be an S to make is plural.

Edit: Silpion literally derives from Sil meaning shine

No further correct answers as yet.

Try 8, 10, 12, 13 and 14 next. I'd say they're the easiest ones.

Both correct answers.

1. Games and a Surrey town lose direction for them.
2. One may mither a ewe’s consort, (slowly at first), to see them.
3. They sound like the transgressions of a Shakespearean thief.
SHIPS: They pass in the night.
5. For these warlike things, a generic British pub gains an article, but loses others.
ORCS: A murder of them disperses and loses direction. But the end result is still pretty murderous!
7. Concerning charity, they stand clear.
8. A good war vest reveals them.
9. They type backwards, swallowing a very Welsh beginning.
HOBBITS: They are parts for a cooker top.
11. For these flowers, a weaver loses an article and is conflicted between two ways.
12. Delve safely to find them. Go on!
AINUR: Rian, you hear, was conflicted about them.
14. For them, see the dwarf of the sand mountain appear.
15. Mashed potato turns dental to plosive for these.
16. Tear around before embracing truth for them.
17. Ancient fortress returns for refreshment.
18. Here is a kingdom in disarray, with endless damnation.
19. Reset (twice) and see them.
WIZARDS: Hospital rooms swallow endless zip for them.
21. Confused but giving person sings backwards for them.
22. Disadvantages declare, by charged atoms, their shining name.

HINT TO ALL: This password is celebrating something.

Try clues 8, 12 and 14.

Edit: Silpion literally derives from Sil meaning shine
ION is correct for that element of the clue. The answer to this one is something we get in Tolkien's works/world, but in our world as well. This is true of several of the answers.

For 2 and 3, think of some of the crafts and wiles we use when creating the clues. For 2, G55 was right in using RAM for the ewe's consort.
