May I have an A then Thorin ?
Sure mellon you get 2 As

_ A L _ _/_ _ _/_ _/_ _ _ _ _ _/L _ _ _/_ _/_ _ _ _ A .

2 Ls for grondy, 2 As for mellon

No Es.
Would you please place my two or three Rs in your wheel, Thorin?
Now I'd like a couple Ns or fewer, please.
I'd like a couple of Is, please!
May I have an O then please ?
Moderator Smilie As Thorin hasn't come back to maintain his puzzle, anyone else may start a new one, if they promise to try and be around to maintain it almost daily until it has been guessed. Happy Elf Smilie

We may finish his after he returns.
I suggest you start it Grondy! If we may start to forward letters I feel obliged to enter my usual R.
okay, try:

_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ (five words of 3, 5, 4, 2, and 6 letters length respectivly.)
No correct answers, try again.

So it still reads:

_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ ]


Sorry, nary an R. Orc Sad Smilie
May I please have an A then ?
I'm wishing for a L, Grondy.
Yes, we have: two As for Mellon and two Ls for Rafael. Orc Smiling Smilie

And now it reads:

_ _ _ / _ L A _ _ / _ A _ _ / _ _ / _ L _ _ _ _ ]


Sorry, nary an R. Orc Sad Smilie
Anee E's?? Orc Grinning Smilie
May I have an H ?
the word was Blin son of fundin. Sorry folks but i will not be here for quite a long time. see you when you see me Dead Smilie
Sorry, we'll be missing you, friend Thorin! Very Sad Smilie

Grondy I may offer an I or twoon your wheel! Brown, not blue my eyes are, though I'm ever so blue-eyed!! Super Wow Smilie
Yes, we have: two As and one H for Mellon; one I and two Ls for Rafael; and three Es for Laurelome. Orc Smiling Smilie

So now it reads:

_ H E / _ L A _ _ / _ A _ E / I _ / _ L _ _ E _


Sorry, nary an R. Orc Sad Smilie
Thanks Grondy Smile Smilie May I have a T then please ?
Thanks, Grondy! May I use an S then!
Yes, we have: two As, one H, and two Ts for Mellon; one I, two Ls, and two Ss for Rafael; and three Es for Laurelome. Orc Smiling Smilie

So now it reads:

T H E / _ L A _ _ / _ A T E / I S / _ L _ S E _

Do you have it now? Happy Elf Smilie

Sorry, nary an R. Orc Sad Smilie
I do think I see a clue, please enter my O. pretty please, Grondy!
I have it!!! Taken a good deal of thinking, but it's;

"The Black Gate is Closed"

Sorry Raffy Orc With Thumbs Up Smilie but I'm sure you shall be happy today as The Red Devils won!!! Elf With a Big Grin SmilieModerator SmilieElf With a Big Grin Smilie
Congratulations Loss! You did it again!

This time I'll start with an E, please!
Rightio, let's get this started;

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ (7)

Sorry, your E is a no-show Raf Man
And I bet myself that an E was the answer, the whole answer and nothing but the answer. ! I am ever so disappointed; that was a double-huff!!! Shocked Smilie Very Sad Smilie Shocked Smilie

Well, then I have to try an I or two, young brother Loss! One Eye Smilie Super Wow Smilie One Eye Smilie
Well done Loss; I'd like an N please.
Congrats LossJumping Flame Smilie May I have an H please ?
May I chip in an A?
_ I _ _ A I N (7)

Alrighty then, that's 2 I's for the Raf Man, (which I think makes up for that no-show of an E Orc Smiling Smilie ) 1 N for Grondy, and of course you may chip in an A Laurel Orc Grinning Smilie

After that turn, there are no E's for Raf, no H for Mellon Orc Sad Smilie but that brings us to three spaces remaining Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Any S then Loss ? Can't see the word yetSmile Smilie
Hm...Let's try an L?
I haven't the foggiest of an idea, so I guess I'll guess a G, please.
I'm asking for a V this time, Loss! V means Victory doesn't it?
_ I _ _ A I N (7)

No correct guesses this time round, but that's 2 I's for the Raf Man, 1 N for Grondy, and chipping an A for Laurel Orc Grinning Smilie

Okay, now to the wrong guesses, there are no E's or V (no victory today) for Raf, no H or S for Mellon, no L for Laurelome and no G for Grondy Orc Sad Smilie hopefully next round will better the last Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Hmm..Is there any T then Loss ?
Well then if you please, are there any Fs?
aRe there any R's?
_ I R _ A I N (7)

Aye, 1 correct guess, so that's 2 I's for the Raf Man, 1 N for Grondy, (this round's correct guess) 1 R from Tinúviel and chipping an A for Laurel Orc Grinning Smilie

From this round, there are 2 additional wrong guesses, there are no E's or V for Raf, no H or S or T for Mellon, no L for Laurelome and no G or F for Grondy Orc Sad Smilie but do not despair, two letters left Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
The word still confuses me ..any M then Loss ?
Maybe there is a W in there somewhere, please.
I am ever so confused, but I'll try a K, please! Disturbed Smilie
M I R _ A I N (7)

Now, it should be relatively easy now, just one letter left, that's 2 I's for the Raf Man, 1 N for Grondy, 1 M for Mellon 1 R from Tinúviel and chipping an A for Laurel Orc Grinning Smilie

Onto the wrong guesses, there are no E's or V's or K's for Raf, no H or S or T for Mellon, no L for Laurelome and no G or F or W for Grondy Orc Sad Smilie just one measly letter left Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Mirdain - that was a bad one LOSS! I was almost out of my snakish skin!

But it has to be MIRDAIN!
One word puzzles are quite hard, especially when the are obscure words. It took me almost forever to find the word in Tolkien's writings as it is usually paired with 'Gwaith-I-' = "people of the" Mirdain, the jewel-smiths, who lived in Eregion and were almost as famous as Fëanor.
Indeed it is Mírdain, and I thought I'd chuck in a single word as we all need a challenge at some point or another, refreshes the knowledge Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Well, here we go:

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _/ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _/ 2 words, 18 letters

Good hunting everyone!

I would like an L, please. Jumping Flame Smilie
