The Saucepan Man 02-24-2004 12:00 PM

None of the above. :rolleyes: :D

symestreem 02-24-2004 01:47 PM

5) Esse? It is the Quenyan word for name; Quenya is high elven; a name is a title.

Finwe 02-24-2004 02:07 PM

5) epessė?

High Elven (Quenya)

title (an epessė often described what a person did or a defining characteristic ex. Gil-galad)

Nilpaurion Felagund 02-25-2004 01:28 AM

Don't ask...just don't ask.
 
4. Istari.

The Saucepan Man 02-25-2004 11:02 AM

Nope!
 
Keep guessing! (Now, where's that evil smiley gone ...)

Turambar 02-25-2004 01:08 PM

Can't be right
 
#5 Ilśvatar ?

Evisse the Blue 02-25-2004 06:13 PM

Is the Password Valaquenta ?

Finwe 02-25-2004 08:06 PM

Are any of the guesses even near?

Nilpaurion Felagund 02-25-2004 08:20 PM

4. Envinyatar?
5. Tari? Tarma?

Nirvana II 02-25-2004 10:12 PM

#5 Prince?

Celebrian 02-25-2004 10:21 PM

#5

Indeed it is, Evisse, so your up next. Well done. :)

But first #s 4 and 5 remain to be guessed, so here's a hint for each:

#4 is cryptic. The straight clue is "poorly".

#5 is the title of an individual Elf (and two non-Elves too), although it's not an Elvish word.

:smokin:

Finwe 02-26-2004 11:24 AM

4) Nob?

5) Tall?

The Saucepan Man 02-26-2004 07:12 PM

1. Valacirca: Bringer of a heavenly harvest?
2. Langflood: Commonly said to be the longest bearer of the One Ring.
3. Quendi: Named speakers.
4. Remove first letter of alphabet poorly.
5. Tall: Lofty Elven title.

Correct on #5, Finwe. The Elf was Maedhros. :)

#4 shouldn't be so difficult. How many words are there for alphabet in Tolkien's works? And how many of those words make another Tolkien-related word when you remove the first letter? ;)

Nilpaurion Felagund 02-26-2004 11:55 PM

There are only so many words that begin with "en"...
 
Hmm...

Tengwar(rune) - [its initial letter] = Engwar(sickly). Another word for Men.

In case you didn't notice, this isn't the Rebus thread.

Shut up, Adam. Alter-egos, jeez! :rolleyes:

The Saucepan Man 02-27-2004 08:13 AM

That's the one!
 
1. Valacirca: Bringer of a heavenly harvest?
2. Langflood: Commonly said to be the longest bearer of the One Ring.
3. Quendi: Named speakers.
4. Engwar: Remove first letter of alphabet poorly.
5. Tall: Lofty Elven title.

Evisse the Blue 02-27-2004 02:06 PM

Bring it!:smokin:

The Saucepan Man 02-27-2004 05:59 PM

#2 Grey Havens or Mithlond?
#4 Aragorn? (The spirits of the Oatbreakers "paid off" their oath in serving him.)

Nilpaurion Felagund 02-27-2004 09:03 PM

Me! Me! I wanna guess!!!
 
3. Maedhros?

Evisse the Blue 02-28-2004 12:27 AM

Nope, sorry no correct answers so far.

Additional hints:

4. Spirits pay off for him. Person, entirely cryptic
5. Muted malice broken by a bright memory. A key word here is muted

Miriel 02-28-2004 10:53 AM

Finwe 02-28-2004 11:04 AM

2) Lindon?

6) Ainulindalė?

Firefoot 02-28-2004 02:12 PM

3. Boromir. With my little brother I shared a jewel but not a passion.
4. Spirits pay off for him.

#1 Rana or Isil ?

#2 Gulf of Lune ?

Evisse the Blue 02-28-2004 03:41 PM

Yep, Turambar, those are the ones, well, actually the Elvish equivalent of those. But not to worry, I'm not that nitpicky, so I'll add them.

Nirvana II:smokin:

Finwe 02-28-2004 04:36 PM

5) Finrod? Sauron? Luthien?

(The clue seems to be talking about the singing duels between Finrod and Sauron or Luthien and Sauron.)

Nirvana II 02-28-2004 04:38 PM

for #5 uhhhhh........Sauron?

Evisse the Blue 02-28-2004 04:54 PM

Nirvana II - #3 was aready guessed.
Finwe - you're on the right track, just think on a lower scale.

Finwe 02-28-2004 05:07 PM

Umm... ok... it has something to do with singing then...

Aragorn? (He was singing when he met Arwen.)

Evisse the Blue 02-29-2004 12:38 AM

Nope. Not singing and not Aragorn.

1. IthilThing that starts a sword's harmless touch comes out at night.
2.Lhun Final journey begins here.
3.Boromir With my little brother I shared a jewel but not a passion.
4. Spirits pay off for him. Hint: slang
5. Muted malice broken by a bright memory. Hint: confrontation; key word: muted
6.Angband Hellish way to contain a musical ensemble.

NightKnight 02-29-2004 04:47 AM

Evisse the Blue 02-29-2004 07:52 AM

Mandos? Nope!

Finwe 02-29-2004 03:16 PM

5) Cirith Ungol (when Frodo and Sam broke the spell of the Watchers by using the Phial of Earendil)

Thorongil 02-29-2004 03:37 PM

5) or could it be the watchers themselves?

Nirvana II 02-29-2004 08:10 PM

Yes!

3.Boromir With my little brother I shared a jewel but not a passion.
4. Spirits pay off for him.
5.Silent Watchers Muted malice broken by a bright memory
6.Angband Hellish way to contain a musical ensemble.

Almost there... Hint for no4: it's cryptic, it's a person's last name, one of the words is also a slang term.

Nilpaurion Felagund 03-01-2004 02:08 AM

Another one of those off-target shots...
 
Is the password Thorin? :)

That's a hit! The password is indeed Thorin, so you can start preparing the next mind game.
In the meantime, there's still #4 to be guessed.
