3# Rathlóriel ?

Finwe 11-03-2003 08:31 PM

4) either Isenmouthe or Ivrin?

NightKnight 11-04-2003 12:50 AM

1) Lossarnach (Other confused moon between defeat and a half goblin with flowers.)
2) No wooden bow edge.
3) High starts with back, before the right one river.
4) Isenmouthe (River stopped by white speaks at last note.)
5) Estel (Muddled steel youngling.)
6) Nargothrond (Pointy Greek ship before cut king's chair followed by a note.)

Turambar 11-04-2003 07:10 AM

Can you explain 1 and 3?

NightKnight 11-04-2003 01:26 PM

Sure.

Quote:

Other confused moon
Take another word for moon, Rana, and mix it up to get arna.

Quote:

between defeat and a half goblin with flowers
Another word for defeat is loss.
Half goblin = orch without or
With flowers was the straight clue, as Lossarnach is a flowery region.
Then stick in arna between loss and ch. Lossarnach! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

As for number 3, High is the straight clue. Think of a prefix meaning back, and I think you'll find it. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Turambar 11-04-2003 01:50 PM

I meant 4, not 3, but thanks for the hint on 3.

Rerir ?

NightKnight 11-04-2003 02:04 PM

Oh, well, here it is:

Quote:

River stopped by white speaks at last note
River stopped by white = Isen was stopped by Saruman
Speaks = mouth
And then an E.

NightKnight 11-04-2003 02:06 PM

#2 Oakenshield? I'm not getting that one . . .

NightKnight 11-05-2003 03:02 AM

Nope. It's mostly synonyms in that one.

Finwe 11-06-2003 06:39 PM

2) Onodrim?

NightKnight 11-07-2003 12:43 AM

1. Camlost?

4. Nibs?

5. Curufin?

Finwe 11-13-2003 09:23 PM

Here's a hint:

1.) (person)

2.) (place)

3.) (place)

4.) (person)

5.) (person)

6.) (person)

Many of them are in the Silmarillion.

Turambar 11-18-2003 05:38 PM

Apparently we need more hintses.

Nilpaurion Felagund 11-18-2003 07:25 PM

Yes, yes...more hintses...*gollum, gollum*

By the way...how many avatars have you had, Turambar...just a question...that one's new...

Finwe 11-18-2003 09:57 PM

Look in the Silmarillion, especially in the index where it gives you the meaning of the names and the characteristics of the main characters. A couple of them are quite easy actually.

I'll give you a hint for number 1: He was a very famous wanderer.

Nilpaurion Felagund 11-20-2003 12:29 AM

5. Arvedui?

I'll be stabbing blind here, for my Silmarillion has been snatched by a fool...a friend, actually...

Finwe 11-20-2003 09:40 PM

Right on!!!! I'm so glad someone finally got one!!!!

NightKnight 11-21-2003 09:56 AM

For some odd reason I think number 1 is Beren. No idea why, though.

The Saucepan Man 11-21-2003 07:49 PM

I think that it would be helpful all round if the person giving the answer or (if they cannot) the question-setter could explain the answers when they are not obvious.

Finwe 11-22-2003 07:34 AM

Ok. I'll change the questions around a little bit, to make them a little easier.

Nilpaurion Felagund 11-23-2003 11:36 PM

First, I thought it was Curufin, and heroic archer referred to was Derufin. But I was mistaken, so I went for Duilin. The first person that came to my mind that has either half of Duilin is Arvedui. So, I stabbed wildly and I posted my answer.

1. Tuor?

3. Argonath?

4. Bilbo?

The Laurenendorian 11-24-2003 08:08 AM

1) Eärendil?

And it appears the Master of Doom has beaten me to the answer to 6).
