3) where they had to pass to get to where they wanted

I didn't put a lot of effort in it due to my busy schedule, so there you go!

NightKnight 09-23-2004 10:35 PM

4. Dragon-helm?

Turambar 10-26-2004 06:30 PM

No. 5
 
Osgiliath?

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-15-2005 05:47 PM

Another favorite thread of mine. If nobody minds I'd like to pose a new question here? Familiarity with Saucepan's cryptic techniques will be helpful.

1. thereís one for meat, and one for scrambling the short world contained.

2. Legolas = young lady lawyer takes a shot in the dark

3. Iris = Deep purple sword-bearer of Ithilien

4. Ye gods! It's Elton Johnís single sensational sister

5. Airy entrance for merpeople, and "well met" at that

6. Beer Mona! Iíve been lonely far too long.

7. Boy precedes one small ball walking backwards.

Good Luck and happy decoding.

Sophe

Firefoot 01-16-2005 06:12 PM

I'm glad you've resurrected this thread - I wouldn't call myself good at these but they're fun to try to figure out anyway.

2 - Legolas? Young lady - lass, lawyer - ?, and Legolas took a shot in the dark when he shot at the NazgŻl's steed over the Anduin.

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-16-2005 07:10 PM

Yes, It most certainly is Legolas. And I must say, I pillaged the clue from Phrim earlier in the thread. Young Lady Lawyer = Legal-lass ;).

I'll edit in the correct answers as they're given in my original post.

Sophia

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-19-2005 12:24 AM

*bump*
 
a clue or two?

1. is the hardest clue in the game
3. is a straight clue and has nothing to do with the band Deep Purple ;)
4. appropriate song title should provide a substantial clue. Original clue has been modified.

the phantom 01-19-2005 12:36 AM

Don't have much time, but I might have something for number three.

3. Deep purple sword-bearer of Ithilien

This text can be found in LOTR when the hobbits are passing through Ithilien-
Quote:

iris-swords stood in ranks about it
So, could 3 be "iris"?

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-19-2005 01:04 AM

I told you it was a straight clue.
 
Indeed.

the phantom 01-19-2005 01:12 AM

Quote:

It's Elton Johnís single sensational sister
The only thing I can think of is that one song of his "Your Sister Can't Twist (But She Can Rock'n'Roll)".

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-19-2005 01:18 AM

name that tune...
 
sorry, not that one. :smokin:

[edit:] if it helps, "sister" is not an allusion to the song, but part of the straight clue. And perhaps the clue should be worded "Ye gods! It's Elton John's single, sensational sister." (Note, comma added)

Turambar 01-20-2005 04:56 PM

#4 Nessa?

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-20-2005 04:58 PM

Absolutely
 
The Elton John song in question being "Tiny Dancer". ;)

Hi Turambar.

Relisted questions and answers:

1. thereís one for meat, and one for scrambling the short world contained.

2. Legolas = young lady lawyer takes a shot in the dark

3. Iris = Deep purple sword-bearer of Ithilien

4. Nessa = Ye gods! It's Elton Johnís single sensational sister

5. Gildor = Airy entrance for merpeople, and "well met" at that

6. Beer Mona! Iíve been lonely far too long.

7. Labadal = Boy precedes one small ball walking backwards.

Nilpaurion Felagund 01-21-2005 12:27 AM

The WAG of mortals came upon me.
 
Is the password Glingal?

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-21-2005 02:41 AM

You'll face the sure and swift wrath of Phantom for this...
 
...because I'm pretty sure he had it.

But yes, that is the password. Once all the clues have been worked out the thread will be yours Nilp.

Sophia

the phantom 01-21-2005 11:17 AM

It's okay, King Nilp.

I wouldn't have taken the thread anyway. I couldn't justify it considering I can't solve any of the mini clues.

(but, if I have the time this afternoon to think and I'm able to solve a couple clues- then you'll be in trouble :p )

Nilpaurion Felagund 01-21-2005 10:21 PM

Answer, then! Answer.
 
And then yield the thread to me! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! http://www.geocities.com/louis_martian/smilies/evil.gif

Sorry, people. I had trouble solving the clues, but _LIN___ just beckoned to me (must be all those days at PoF . . . )

Anywhen, is #1 Gamgee?

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-22-2005 10:00 PM

#1 is not Gamgee..

Since I'm looking at the clue again, and finding that it is ridiculously difficult, here's a few hints.

1) it is an object.

2) it is two words.

3) the first part of the clue reference the second word.

4) the second part of the clue references the first word.

Now it should be much easier. :smokin: I think.

Sophia

The Saucepan Man 01-22-2005 10:05 PM

*Saucepan shamelessly takes Sophia's hint to the phantom on the Cryptic Clues thread*

Airy entrance for merpeople = Gill Door

So the answer to #5 must be Gildor, who was "well met" by Frodo, Sam and Pippin.

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-23-2005 12:22 AM

Shame on you!
 
But you're right, of course. ;)

I was wondering when you'd show up...

Sophia

Encaitare 01-23-2005 04:19 PM

I have been pondering this for so long!

Is #7 Ladros?

Sophia the Thunder Mistress 01-23-2005 04:29 PM

#7 is not Ladros. Sorry...

the lad part of the clue is almost right, but not quite... the last part should be applied to the entire clue.

Sophia

The Saucepan Man 01-23-2005 06:35 PM

Once again piggy-backing on the efforts of others ...
 
7. Boy precedes one small ball walking backwards.

Boy = Lad
One = A
Small ball = Bal

Which give Ladabal.

But, walking backwards, it is Labadal, aka Turin's friend Sador.
