It is not. I think the straight clue is pretty direct here, and it's a major chunk of NoME (though I know that doesn't help much).

New page:

NUMENOR - The numinous root, otherwise known as a gift.
AROMA - Perfume from one Italian city.
3. T - Chronic rails, year by year.
UNBEGOTTEN - A French one, conceived by the first to rise.
RADAGAST - Not grey... not gray, a German guest.
ELLIPSE - In the round, Hell ends, and I am retro-telepathy.
ORIGINS - Let's begin: Oh, snigger backwards, but with me instead of the example.
FEAR - Spiritually scary.
MELIAN - The queen's scrambled citrus - o! Change it for two others.
ENTERTAINMENT - Go in, men in the corruption, and enjoy it.

Precisely! The first third of NoME is basically all timelines.

NUMENOR - The numinous root, otherwise known as a gift.
AROMA - Perfume from one Italian city.
TIMELINES - Chronic rails, year by year.
UNBEGOTTEN - A French one, conceived by the first to rise.
RADAGAST - Not grey... not gray, a German guest.
ELLIPSE - In the round, Hell ends, and I am retro-telepathy.
ORIGINS - Let's begin: Oh, snigger backwards, but with me instead of the example.
FEAR - Spiritually scary.
MELIAN - The queen's scrambled citrus - o! Change it for two others.

Very good password, hS, and very topical!

Here's one I made earlier:

1. Two French determiners add five for the life of him, but get her instead.
2. Destroy portal destroy it all! Sauron would have, if hed thought of it!
3. See him claim a glory within it.
4. See him lambast, then lose his way in the confusion of making something soapy.
5. Loan offal (for a feast?) around here?
6. Is Davids enemy just slightly confused here?
7. Additional potassium mixes with a little lithium before hes revealed.
8. Latin hurrah meets Bible girl bereft of alternating current to reveal him.
9. See him change direction on the way to Damascus onerously, for a while.
10. Behold! Tear! Reassemble him!
11. Here, its broad and troubled around a London suburb.

Ruin that door, Sauron, yer pillock!

Urwen 09-13-2021 10:01 AM

6. And this one is Osgiliath. I recall you used the same trick once...

Galadriel55 09-13-2021 10:52 AM

I wonder if 7 is MELKOR. MORE + K + L(i... or ithium, I suppose).

1. Two French determiners add five for the life of him, but get her instead.
ORODRUIN: Destroy portal – destroy it all! Sauron would have, if he’d thought of it!

Both correct. :)

Urwen 09-20-2021 08:58 AM

Uh, some help? :D

Pervinca Took 09-20-2021 10:19 AM

Try 3. Just read it. It's easy.

10. 2 synonyms, then scramble them.

Urwen 09-20-2021 10:22 AM

3. Maglor?

Urwen 09-20-2021 10:28 AM

10. Elrohir?

No to 10. What were your two synonyms?

Urwen 09-20-2021 01:17 PM

Lo and hie

LO is correct. Hie isn't.

5 is another where you take 2 synonyms and scramble them.

Urwen 09-20-2021 03:40 PM

Lo+run?

No, it's the literal meaning of tear, as in rip, (but not rip).

Urwen 09-21-2021 05:08 AM

Lo+shred?

Urwen 09-21-2021 05:11 AM

Or Lo+rend? I think this is more likely...

Urwen 09-21-2021 05:14 AM

Elrond?

Urwen 09-21-2021 05:45 AM

Closest I can get for 1 is Lalaith (La+la+???)

Urwen 09-21-2021 05:48 AM

Oh, wait.

Life of him = Life of Brian

So Ce+le+brian

Still haven't managed to find anything for 5, though...

Also, 8.

Rachel - ac + Io?

Urwen 09-21-2021 02:23 PM

Last D is Dwimordene (WIDE+MORDEN)

Urwen 09-21-2021 02:44 PM

And S is Sauron :D

Pervinca Took 09-21-2021 02:56 PM

Yeah.

Urwen 09-21-2021 03:03 PM

Two left...the hardest two...

Urwen 09-22-2021 03:25 AM

Could R be Rivendell?

Huinesoron 09-22-2021 04:26 AM

P could be Panthael - Pan = lambast (as in a review), and thael is lather - R.

Pervinca Took 09-22-2021 06:27 AM

It's a wrap!
 
CELEBRIAN: Two French determiners add five for the life of him, but get her instead.
ORODRUIN: Destroy portal – destroy it all! Sauron would have, if he’d thought of it!
MAGLOR: See him claim a glory within it.
PANTHAEL: See him lambast, then lose his way in the confusion of making something soapy.
RIVENDELL: Loan offal (for a feast?) around here?
OSGILIATH: Is David’s enemy just slightly confused here?
MELKOR: Additional potassium mixes with a little lithium before he’s revealed.
IORHAEL: Latin hurrah meets Bible girl bereft of alternating current to reveal him.
SAURON: See him change direction on the way to Damascus – onerously, for a while.
ELROND: Behold! Tear! Reassemble him!
DWIMORDENE: Here, it’s broad and troubled around a London suburb.

RIVENDELL is LOAN LIVER.

SAURON = SAUL - L + ON(EROUSLY).

Perfect reasoning for DWIMORDENE and PANTHAEL.

All compromised in some way, I trust you'll agree.

And over to Urwen!

Urwen 09-22-2021 10:37 AM

1. Your, we hear, inside an element. For him.
2. Troubled precipitation reveals her.
3. Noah's son returns. A broken reward and a direction lead to her.
4. Behold, a stern and troubled man!
5. Gaseous mixture meets a place he lives in. Twist it to find him.
6. A star loses Cobb. Add a Roman 1000 and a broken round ball for him
