I think 5 might be RATHLORIEL - it contains most of the Golden Wood (Lorien) and it's a river.

Could RA be the westernmost part of Raleigh? (The letters furthest to the west/left?) - oh, we want the L of Raleigh too. 'Not in west London' isn't 'Don't take the L from London, take it from Raleigh' ... it's 'The N from London isn't in - the letter from the east/ right of it (not the west) - so take it from LORIEN.' The rest of it goes in RA ...L.

Damn. Thought I'd solved it. Where does the TH come from?

It's EDEN, plus THOR, I guess.

Is Ossiriand also the theme? Did the other Denethor also have two sons?

7. ADURANT, the most southerly of Ossiriand's seven rivers. RANT for angry speech, but can't provide the rest.
Yep on Denethor. I don't think the other one had kids, but I was trying to be tricksy. Ossiriand is the theme.

Spot on with the reasoning for Adurant, and well done finding nowglamour.

ONODRIM - They march, conjunctionless, on an odd rim.
SEA - See, hear - it's great.
SILMARIL - Our rock, silly Mary - ill. Not asking why or playing doubles.
ISLE - I'll hear amid the waters.
5. R - The Golden Wood, a river? Not in west London, more like in west Raleigh.
6. I - Take inventory in Adelaide, three times each, put it on a Serbian site, and fight.
ADURANT - First, during Frodo's burden's loss, an angry speech in the south.
NAUGLAMIR - Miners make now this, now glamour - it's in there if they listen.
DENETHOR - A tumbling garden meets a hammer's lord, father of two sons.

Only two to go!

Well, you did get the right answer! It's LOTHLORIEN minus LO... N, plus RA... L.

I think it's this:

Gelion-Ascar Stockade

Take inventory = Stock + Ade (from Adelaide), also lai sounds like 'lay' which is a synonym for put on.

(Also, Riddles in the Downs needs some love.)

I would have loved to use Stockade for one of the S, but... I didn't think of it. Not this, though ADE is right, and correctly derived to boot.

No time, and prefer this thread. Sorry.

I found I VAETH or I MAETH for battle, but nothing else beginning with I.

The only other thing that comes to mind is Land of the Dead that Live, but it doesn't seem to fit either.

It's none of those.

... all right, all right. It starts with I, and is formed of three parts. ADE is the second part.

And it's not a specifically Tolkien term.

I didn't, for one!

What is the Serbian site in the answer, and where does 3 times each fit in? 3 invasions?

Is the Sea strictly IN Ossiriand?

Not a Serbian site, but the domain.

Oh, 3 times = 3 letters from each.

Is RS the domain for Serbia, like DE (I think) for Germany?

I did not! I just checked Wikipedia to see what RS could stand for.

In my professional capacity I'm quite fond of Serbia, because it looks like Serbian chemical labels will also be accepted in at least three nearby countries. That makes my job much easier, and is probably why I picked it from Wikipedia's list.

Completely EXCELLENT answer regarding the Sea. Not the full Numenor treatment, but War of Cross Valar was no joke.

Pedantry satisfied.

Any road, here's the next one:


1. The first – an archangel – who’s guarding a vase?
2. The second – spends more than an age at his house?
3. The third graced our screens in ‘Auf Wiedersehen, Pet!’
4. The fourth was a Prince on a Veronese set.
5. The fifth, though no hobbit, loves victuals and drink,
6. The sixth – Walford matriarch allows us – I think!
7. The seventh played quack to Ross Poldark’s old flame -
8. The eighth, (flag the second), definitive Thain!*
9. The ninth, (flag the fourth), a Walfordian quack -
10. The tenth – Tucker’s sister? (Once a river flows back).
11. In eleven, a saint meets a foundling most poor -
12. In twelve, it seems Shakespeare’s nearby, but wherefore? **
13. Thirteen is a saint, and a visionary too, **
14. Fourteen is a maid, and a gemstone most true.
15. Fifteen: Eighties game, plus a bounder and measure, **
16. Sixteen plays the son of an elf who loves treasure.
17. For seventeen, no spade? Petrified, but not dead!
18. Eighteen, (flag the sixth), Attercop! Poison-head!
19. The nineteenth, twice queenly, a pen or car-stopper?
20. With twenty as glue, the tale won’t come a cropper! **
21. Twenty-one is no Jekyll. On horseback he jogs,
22. Twenty-two steers a barge, or plays fair Lewis Boggs!
23. This sibilant genius is our twenty-three - ***
24. Two dozen! - a Potter, and Old English sea!

The whole means a drama, of quality rare,
Where thesps and their ilk show considerable flair!
I left out the ‘sounds likes’ to make it flow better,
So - enjoy the clues! (From Pervinca, your setter).

( * Well, future Thain).
(** Flag the second).
(*** Flag the third).

... Seems like a lot of actors, based on the clues' phrasing. Oh geez.

Yes, more or less. But once you figure which set, you'll tumble them very quickly. And it's mostly first letters. Where it isn't, it says 'flag the second,' etc.

I would try the ones that obviously refer to an actor's other work first. The password will gradually reveal itself.

Galadriel, find someone who PLAYED Escalus. On film.

Ah, I see. I know the pattern now. All I need to do is match the remaining actors from that to their other roles as described.

No to the rest.

1. The first – an archangel – who’s guarding a vase?
2. The second – spends more than an age at his house?
CHRISTOPHER FAIRBANK (Shagrat): The third graced our screens in ‘Auf Wiedersehen, Pet!’
4. The fourth was a Prince on a Veronese set.
5. The fifth, though no hobbit, loves victuals and drink,
6. The sixth – Walford matriarch allows us – I think!
7. The seventh played quack to Ross Poldark’s old flame -
8. The eighth, (flag the second), definitive Thain!*
9. The ninth, (flag the fourth), a Walfordian quack -
10. The tenth – Tucker’s sister? (Once a river flows back).
11. In eleven, a saint meets a foundling most poor -
12. In twelve, it seems Shakespeare’s nearby, but wherefore? **
13. Thirteen is a saint, and a visionary too, **
14. Fourteen is a maid, and a gemstone most true.
15. Fifteen: Eighties game, plus a bounder and measure, **
DAVID COLLINGS (Legolas): Sixteen plays the son of an elf who loves treasure.
17. For seventeen, no spade? Petrified, but not dead!
18. Eighteen, (flag the sixth), Attercop! Poison-head!
19. The nineteenth, twice queenly, a pen or car-stopper?
20. With twenty as glue, the tale won’t come a cropper! **
21. Twenty-one is no Jekyll. On horseback he jogs,
RICHARD O'CALLAGHAN (Merry): Twenty-two steers a barge, or plays fair Lewis Boggs!
23. This sibilant genius is our twenty-three - ***
24. Two dozen! - a Potter, and Old English sea!

The whole means a drama, of quality rare,
Where thesps and their ilk show considerable flair!
I left out the ‘sounds likes’ to make it flow better,
So - enjoy the clues! (From Pervinca, your setter).

( * Well, future Thain).
(** Flag the second).
(*** Flag the third).

THEME: THE BBC 'LORD OF THE RINGS' RADIO DRAMATISATION.

Quite sure, thank you.

You are right that 'Walfordian' - in both cases - refers to 'Eastenders' - but neither of the stars is Gillian Taylforth.
