#4 Death Down ?

Celebrian 12-10-2003 05:56 PM

'Tis not...

Nilpaurion Felagund 12-10-2003 09:01 PM

2. Moria?
6. Bag-End?

Celebrian 12-11-2003 07:43 AM

2 is close, 6 is far away

#2 Chamber of Mazarbul ?

#6 Oxford? Sandfield Road ?

Celebrian 12-11-2003 08:25 AM

2 still holds its mystery.
6 is indeed Sandfield Road, Turambar!

Reposting for this page:
One, Gondorian grouping, Butterbur drooping
Two, a monster cache, a place of doom: Angband
Three, at this age what angst a tweener would be suffering?: Nwalme, torment
Is four a mound, or stone, a place for bones? : Tombs
A fifth, a time in Bree to be mead a-drinking: Afterlithe, called "Mede" in Bree
The sixth is where there lived an Inkling: Sandfield Road, Oxford
Seven's a remedy for overheating: Isenmouthe
Guess eighth and poser end is soon, for it is a burial bloom: Evermind

Turambar 12-11-2003 09:44 AM

Were any guesses for #2 close?

Tyrn Gorthad?

#5 LoŽndŽ ?

<font size=1 color=339966>[ 10:49 AM December 11, 2003: Message edited by: Turambar ]

Celebrian 12-11-2003 10:12 AM

2 - Not yet. Hint: switch to "cache of monsters"
5 - Close.

Turambar 12-11-2003 10:48 AM

#3 Thirty-three ?

#5 Mid-Summer's Day, or Eve ?

<font size=1 color=339966>[ 11:50 AM December 11, 2003: Message edited by: Turambar ]

Celebrian 12-11-2003 11:07 AM

3 - Knice knumber, but knot that one, knimble plum-gatherer!
5 - Master of Doom, again close!

Turambar 12-11-2003 11:18 AM

Thirty-two, then - last year of the carefree tweens ?

#5 Overlithe ? Or, more topically, Yule ?

Finwe 12-11-2003 11:51 AM

2) Utumno?

7) Isenmouthe?

Celebrian 12-11-2003 12:07 PM

2 - Nay.
3 - Too old. Think of another word for angst.
5 - Close again. When ye rede it write.
7 - Isenmouthe (ice in mouth). Yes, Finwe

Dexter, sinister, dexter.

Finwe 12-11-2003 12:15 PM

4) Barrow?

Turambar 12-11-2003 12:28 PM

Hmmm. #3 Twenty-four (angst = fear = vier) ?

Celebrian 12-11-2003 01:12 PM

3 - Think Elvish.
4 - Think English. Hint: Denethor was awfully anxious to be there.

Turambar 12-11-2003 01:28 PM

#3 Ten ? (S. caer, sounds like "care") [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

Celebrian 12-11-2003 01:53 PM

3 - More elvish than that. Too young, too.
I'll start giving hints for #1 only after first guess.

Turambar 12-11-2003 02:10 PM

Last attempt for #3 - Twenty-four (CANTA RASTA) ?

Celebrian 12-11-2003 02:20 PM

3 - Sorry! This one's toltolly tengwar. And I must away...

Turambar 12-11-2003 02:34 PM

Ah - is #3 twenty ? (Tengwa 20 is nwalme = "torment".)

Celebrian 12-11-2003 02:45 PM

Turambar, yes, nwalme is the clue!

"I'm in a hurry now. Evening will follow day."

Finwe 12-11-2003 05:20 PM

4) Tomb? Grave?

Celebrian 12-11-2003 05:52 PM

4 - The Tombs, is correct, Finwe! Denethor headed there with sickly Faramir.

Nilpaurion Felagund 12-12-2003 01:30 AM

1. Company?
2. Azanulbizar?
5. Elves' New Year?

Celebrian 12-12-2003 07:32 AM

No, no and... no. Keep quessing, I think the pass is getting obvious, however.
1 - Another group was there, albeit briefly
5 - Turambar's last guess was closer, wordwise

<font size=1 color=339966>[ 12:57 PM December 12, 2003: Message edited by: Celebrian ]

Turambar 12-12-2003 12:35 PM

How about just lithe for #5 ?

#2 Misty Mountains?

<font size=1 color=339966>[ 1:39 PM December 12, 2003: Message edited by: Turambar ]

Celebrian 12-12-2003 01:00 PM

#2 - You may have to look in the SIL to find this dark Home. Is this thread limited to LOTR?
#5 - So close you're tickling me!

Turambar 12-12-2003 01:07 PM

#2 Angband ?

#5 Overlithe?

Celebrian 12-12-2003 01:45 PM

2 - Yea, Friend, and
5 - Nay, you've already used that guess and it's still wrong. You might have to be a Breelander to get this one.

Turambar 12-12-2003 02:25 PM

The Summerdays ?

Celebrian 12-12-2003 02:34 PM

You're hot, 'tis the correct time of year to be enjoying the May-Honey

Turambar 12-12-2003 02:42 PM

Thrimidge ? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Celebrian 12-12-2003 05:39 PM

[img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] Alas! No. Hint: About the brew and the bees; bees gather the honey in that month of blooming, so anyone making a mead (honey added) drink is going to have to wait 'til the bees are done to gather it, then make the mix and wait a bit for it to ferment.

Finwe 12-12-2003 07:34 PM

1) Fornost? Norbury?

Celebrian 12-12-2003 09:12 PM

Ah, Noldorian, #1 is a grouping of ... characters (as opposed to place or thing)

Finwe 12-13-2003 12:06 PM

1) Rangers? Dunedain?

Celebrian 12-13-2003 02:46 PM

Nice group, Finwe, but Butterbur's still not happy about #1's grouping.

<font size=1 color=339966>[ 8:58 PM December 14, 2003: Message edited by: Celebrian ]

Finwe 12-13-2003 02:51 PM

5) Forelithe? Afterlithe? Lithe?

Celebrian 12-13-2003 02:55 PM

Afterlithe is correct, Finwe! Surely you have the password on the tips of your fingers, also.
