LILO, from Lilo and Stitch?

LOTHIRIEL?

LILO stumbles upon/around/into THE with IR inside it.

Bingo

6. ELPHIR - the German note H in PERIL.

Brothers and sisters for the theme.

3. LORIEN, brother of Nienna?

LO + (S)IREN.

Pervinca Took 05-20-2019 05:23 AM

EILINEL for the password? (Must check if she had a brother).

Not Eilinel.

Pervinca Took 05-20-2019 06:56 AM

AILINEL.

So Aldarion must be there somewhere. EDIT: Must be the first one, if Ailinel is right.

It's ok. I'll do the work ...

Trouble is, none of Tolkien's deceivers seem to fit. Neither do synonyms like 'liar' or 'cheat' or 'fraud.'

Actually, one of those three synonyms does fit.

Urwen 05-20-2019 07:08 AM

A: A deceiver and a headless element circulate for him.
I: A confused Newfoundlander, within, reveals her.
LORIEN: Behold a headless mythical creature. In turmoil, he is revealed.
I: A den and a pronoun are in disarray for him.
NIENNA: A girl and a German number return for her.
ELPHIR: Rearrange a note in danger, and he is revealed.
LOTHIRIEL: A Hawaiian girl stumbles upon an element within an article. She is revealed.

Pervinca Took 05-20-2019 09:03 AM

Oh yes!

So ... ALDARION - LIAR = DAON.

Something -adon? Although that sounds more like a painkiller.

...

RADON!

So yes: ALDARION.

I think the last two can only be IMRAHIL and IVRINIEL. But I need to work out how.

Imrahil is LAIR + HIM.

You can do it.

*Feeling dim.* I am doing a lot of looking but not seeing on this puzzle.

I am stumped on Ivriniel, though. I have found famous Newfoundlanders, but none of them have names that provide the elements needed.

Pervinca Took 05-20-2019 10:54 AM

If within indicates IN, we're left with VIRILE.

Perhaps 'a' indicates 1/I. That would leave VRILE to account for.

Urwen 05-20-2019 11:05 AM

Well, you got the name, so I'll tell you.

There is a synonym for Newfoundlander: LIVIER. If you add IN, you get the name.

Urwen 05-20-2019 11:07 AM

ALDARION: A deceiver and a headless element circulate for him.
IVRINIEL: A confused Newfoundlander, within, reveals her.

It's yours.

Pervinca Took 05-20-2019 11:15 AM

That was really good, Urwen. It's hard to fit pairs in *and* use all first letters.

I will post one when I get home. I have a couple ready.

Well, I couldn't find the answer at all, and I worked backward from your guess. So, team effort. :)

Pervinca Took 05-20-2019 12:56 PM

Indeed - and it's most fun when several of us are solving a puzzle together.

Once more, then:

1. For him, a liquid and a fricative blend with sweet Italian!
2. The Spanish pull the oars in this place, we hear. Now see him.
3. He initially turns a machine for her.
4. Ugh, he dropped one! Slightly sibilant, and mildly unsettling!
5. He enticed him, we hear (in slightly improper English).
6. Barnet youth loses one, but see him reform.
7. Ancient letter elemental! Mix to find him.

Urwen 05-20-2019 01:01 PM

5. Elured (E+LURED)

Galadriel55 05-20-2019 01:08 PM

2. Elrohir - El, row, and here

Urwen 05-20-2019 01:09 PM

6. Haldar (HAIR-I +LAD)

Galadriel55 05-20-2019 01:11 PM

7. Thorin? Thorn + Iodine...

Pervinca Took 05-20-2019 01:26 PM

ELROHIR: The Spanish pull the oars in this place, we hear. Now see him.

All correct except for Thorin (which is an excellent answer, just not the one I'm looking for).

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:02 PM

Liquid is L or R. Dolce is italian for sweet. But there are many fricatives....

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:03 PM

3. Lotho (Tool+H, the initial of HE)

True. But try a few.

Have you any idea how many mythological creatures I went through before the theme told me it was *siren* I needed? ;)

EDIT: Also, no to Lotho.

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:40 PM

Folcred (DOLCE+F+R)

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:45 PM

4. Fengel (Eng+Leaf-A)

Pervinca Took 05-20-2019 02:49 PM

That's the chap!

No to Fengel.

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:49 PM

7. Elladan (Edan+La)

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:51 PM

That was supposed to be for 3.


So.....


3. Fengel (Eng+Leaf-A)

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:53 PM

Wait, the password is Elladan.

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:53 PM

Which means, he is out as a clue.

No. I don't know what Edan is, and I always account for every letter of the answer.

None of the answers is Fengel.

Urwen 05-20-2019 02:58 PM

Edan is an ancient letter (ᚫᚪ or eadan)
