Results after second round:

T _ E / _ R E A T / _ E A R / O F /_ L E N T _ (five words of 3, 5, 4, 2 and 6 letters adding up to 20 letters.)

MyLady, you get 2 As and 3 Ts, Mini, here's your 1 N and 1 F, Sir Grondy, there's a L for you and also 2 Rs, Thorin, you strike big time, 1 of O and 4 Es.

Sorry Loss, there was never any S!

Who's banging the bell for the answer??? Elf Winking Smilie Happy Elf Smilie
Feel like an idiot .but I still can't see the answer ..May I have a G please ?
I also feel dumb...may I have an H or two please?


Oh and I'm sure the answer will be no...but any chance of putting which book each phrase is from?
After seeing the status of Rafael's current puzzle and assuming Mellon's G and Ladyoflegolas's H are both correct, I guess it is up to me to fill in the other missing blanks and give the answer. It being:

The Great Year of Plenty found under T.A. 3020 (S.R. 1420) in Appendix B of RotK. I only looked it up after having solved it.

So now try:

_ _ _ _ ' _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ !
(five words of 5, 4, 5, 6, and 5 letters length respectivly.)

Quote:
any chance of putting which book each phrase is from?

Ladyoflegolas: The answer should be yes, but only after a puzzle has been correctly guessed, else they would become far too easy.
Congrats GrondySmile Smilie May I please have a S in your next puzzle ?
Gimme some a's please.
Congrats Grondy, I feel like starting with an E today!

BRing On THe GUesseS ladies and GEntlemen!! Cool Smilie
Oh, one of my Os was out of place.
The answer comes from Gandalf's poem about Ents found in 'The Road to Isengard of TTT.
Quote:

'It is not wizardry, but a power far older,' said Gandalf: 'a power that walked the eart, ere elf sang or hammer rang.

Ere iron was found or tree was hewn,
When young was mountain under moon;
Ere ring was made, or wrought was woe,
It walked the forests long ago.'

So try:

_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ / _ _ / _ / _ _ _ _
(Nine words of 3, 6, 2, 6, 2, 1, 2, 1, and 4 letters length respectivly.)
