Not unless you can find a Rowan who fits with the pretty extensive hints I gave in my last post. Which is very unlikely.

...

I'll repost the lot - hints and all.

EAST END: A place for a soap opera?
LAURA: Could be a pioneer girl; could leapfrog for a listening exam.
S He advocates teenage kicks.
E They’re very musical.
WALDA: Twelfth king, or one of Martin’s women?
HAMA: A city on the Orontes. Is he?
EGLANTINE: She’s fragrant, and Chaucerian.
R She was a Seventies copper. Different gender, though.
EORL: That Crabtree! He’s a rugby player!

Further to my apology about Saeros, it really DOES sound like Saeros in an American accent! (Sarris from Galaxy Quest).

On this occasion, the 70s cop is not from the 'Life On Mars' universe. When I said comedic, I meant FULLY comedic. There was a gentle late 70s/I think early 80's comedy about a copper in northern England. The title of this is both his nickname and the answer to R.

You're on the right track for the first E, and might apply the same kind of logic to the new clue I have written for the new answer for S. Both have a musical connection, but neither of them are connected to 'inspired by Tolkien' music.

I saw East End when I was looking something else up on the Encyclopaedia of Arda. I think it's up Rohan way.

Well, google doesn't help. Also, by 'copper', do you mean 'cop'. Yes or no?

New S: apparently Feargal SHARKEY is lead singer of The Undertones, who performed Teenage Kicks.

Apparently "East End" is a term Treebeard uses to describe the former state of Fangorn (as the East End of the ancient forests). So now I'm imagining the London-map title sequence playing out over Fangorn instead, with Isengard in place of the Millennium Dome. ^_^

Yes. Cop is short for copper.

Did you think I was talking about 1970s vintage tea-kettles or something?

Exactement. Not a bad song, actually. Feargal Sharkey did some solo stuff after The Undertones, too. John Peel played Teenage Kicks quite a lot, I think - a DJ who really encouraged and helped new talent.

Rohan ... Fangorn ... I was in roughly the right part of the story.

...

The R that I'm looking for is classed as a sitcom, not a cop show. It was a sitcom about a police station, with a young PC as the central character.

It was renamed with that copper's nickname from Series 2 onwards.

Btw, you could have used Esmeralda for the remaining E as well.

I've prepared something new. Also, it rhymes.

Hope you like it.

1. One king, who chose to go along for a ride
2. And one who slung rocks from the other side
3. One holy race that caused the tide
4. And another, from whose members you cannot hide
5. A title of one who caused an island's destruction on a whim
6. And lastly the one who's hated during Purim

3. Ainur, or perhaps Valar?

5. Ar-Pharazon?

No to Ar-Pharazon.

(All the answers have a Tolkien connection due to something I found when I Google searched.)

Maybe Sauron or Annatar or Mairon for the wrecker of Numenor?

Close, but it's another name - or self-made title - of his, designed to mock Phary...

I initially planned to use him as a clue for a different theme, but then I remembered your puzzle and decided to do a spin-off of my own...

Okay, so this idea clearly isn't panning out, so I'll make a new password in a couple of hours.

It might be better to post a few hints, unless you think the password is so opaque that nobody can possibly get it.

The only idea I had even vaguely was that the rocks in #2 might have something to do with Anarion taking a rock to the head, but I couldn't come anywhere near an answer with that.

I don't have any good thoughts about the rest of the clues. 4 sounds vaguely Mafia-esque. 2. Did the Witch-King lob rocks at Minas Tirith among the heads and the fireballs, or is that only a movie thing?

Just remembered this morning: didn't Sauron call himself something like KING OF THE WORLD, which led directly to Pharazon's invasion of Mordor? Shades of Titanic there

Close, but not quite.


But like I said, this isn't an entirely Tolkien puzzle, so unless someone objects within 24 hours, I am making a new one.

Well, as Hui said before, maybe just consider adding hints to the clues or rephrasing them. Up to you.

Did the fact that it's not fully Tolkien-themed escape you?!

And doesn't it say somewhere in the rules that the password has to be fully Tolkien-themed?!

Like, I would provide clues, but not if you are asking me to break those rules intentionally...

Then why post it in the first place?

For whatever it's worth, Sauron's title was KING OF MEN.

About the rest I have no ideas whatsoever.

Okay, I looked, and there is no such rule, so a hint: half of the solutions are not Tolkien.

1. Peter or Edmund in Narnia?
4. Death Eaters?

If any of them are GRR Martin, I won't get any of those answers. Never read or watched, and no plans to.

If any of them are GRR Martin, I won't get any of those answers. Never read or watched, and no plans to.

None are.

I think we need to admit defeat, Urwen. Do you want to post an exclusively Tolkien puzzle, (where at least we can guess if we get really stuck), or shall I post one?

You're not familiar with the Bible, I take it? The fact Haman is there should have tipped you off...

Oh well

Is there any reason why I should be familiar with the Bible, or expect biblical answers in a Tolkien puzzle?

That would have been a great hint 20-odd days ago.

I'm guessing the password is TANAKH, and the second A is some variant on ANGELS. My Biblical Kings memory is limited to four, none of whom start with T or A, and unlike with the Legendarium I have no interest in digging through the Bible for more.
