Ok here's the new puzzle:

_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ N
five words (3/5/2/3/8)

We have an "N" for Loss (hey I guess that's your entire quota for this puzzle? LOL)
but no "L" for Grondy. Very Sad Smilie

Good luck everyone! Wiggle Smilie
May I have an O please ?
Maybe it's the end of my bad streak Orc Smiling Smilie Nonetheless, let's test it... I'll guess a T
How about an R please?
Wow! Loss is coming back with a VENGEANCE. Everyone scored this time, here is the update:

T _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / O _ / T _ _ / _ O R _ O T T _ N

N = 1 for Loss
L = 0 for Grondy
O = 3 for Mellon
T = 4 for Loss
R = 1 for Grondy

Hey I just noticed...you guys asked for those letters in the same order as Lord Of The Rings, LOL!!!
I'm sure there are some F s' may I have some ?
AH! Could it be third time lucky for another letter? Orc Smiling Smilie

I'll shout for a G, "GGGGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!"
Go a head and give me three Es please. If we're lucky we might even get a clue about the second word. (I think i'm eeed out.)
Once again everyone scored: 2 F's for Mellon, 1 G for Loss, and a WHOPPING FOUR E'S for Grondy.

T _ E / _ _ _ E _ / O F / T _ E / F O R G O T T E N

Alright, come on now, we're playing for some BIG MITHRIL PRIZES here. Someone's gonna solve it soon, I can just feeeeeeeel it!

N = 1 for Loss
L = 0 for Grondy
O = 3 for Mellon
T = 4 for Loss
R = 1 for Grondy
F = 2 for Mellon
G = 1 for Loss
E = 4 for Grondy
May I have a T or two please ?
There have already been four T's which yours truly has guessed and I am going to swoop down again and steal the prize but this time I'd have deserved it Orc Smiling Smilie

The Caves of the Forgotten - The prison that Ar-Pharaz˘n and his army were trapped beneath the Earth for attempting to take Aman from the Valar
Wiggle Smilie DING DING DING DING DING WE HAVE A WINNAH! Wiggle Smilie

Good work Loss, your turn! Elf Smilie

Of course you did Loss..I meant H anyway ...Congrats Brother Smile Smilie
May I please have an A in your new puzzle ?
And an N please.
Orc Smiling Smilie Okay, try this:

_ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (5,2,7)

_________________________________________________________

_ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ A _ A N N A (5,2,7)

At the end of the first round, we have:

Three A's for Mellon
and Two N's for Grondy Orc Smiling Smilie

End of Round One
Well how about an L or two, please?
I think I got it -- "SLEEP OF YAVANNA", the time after Melkor overthrew the Two Lamps, and Yavanna set all the plants, trees, and growing things to sleep until there was light again.
Hahaha! Well done Meneldur, I thought, "Hmm, everyone can tell that it's going to be Yavanna, but will they know the first word"......... Lo and behold! You did! So, in addition to your next puzzle I'll go for an R

Though I did think at first it was going to be Grondy Orc Smiling Smilie
Here is the new puzzle, it's a long one. 5/3/8/5/4/2/7 = 34 letters in 7 words

_ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ , / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _

And yes that's a comma in the middle.
__________________________________________________

_ _ R _ _ / _ _ R / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ R , / _ _ R _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ R

Loss already scored 5 with the R's. Maybe I should pick a different phrase. Elf Winking Smilie
All right, just to show you that Grondy ain't no dummy!

Note: I looked at the last half and thought it could be 'first king of' and the last R suggested 'Numenor', and then the first R fit for 'Elros'. But I did have to go to Unfinished Tales to find his Numenorean moniker, which I knew was 'Tar-' something or other.

Elros Tar-Minyatur, First King of Numenor

But just in case, I'll wait for confirmation before posting the next one. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
HOLY COW!!!!!!!!! Super Wow Smilie Super Wow Smilie Super Wow Smilie Super Wow Smilie

Excellent detective work Grondy!! Your turn. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

BTW you didn't have to go digging through UT, "Tar-Minyatur" is mentioned in a few other places: LOTR Appendix A, "Elros was the first King of N˙menor, and was afterwards known by the High-Elven name Tar-Minyatur". Akallabŕth, "Amandil and Elendil were great ship-captains; and they were of the line of Elros Tar-Minyatur, though not of the ruling house..." And Silmarillion appendices, family tree #2, "The descendants of OlwŰ and ElwŰ".
Nice work Grondy, I'm glad I could help with the R's Orc Smiling Smilie

Seems like you should put that in the list with a little star next to it or something to show the record, plus, you need to put in Sleep of Yavanna in the list too Orc Smiling Smilie
I gotta share something funny with "Sleep of Yavanna"... With only the A's and N's filled in, the first thing that popped into my head (even before "Yavanna") was BANANA, LOL!!!

Quote:
Yavanna, Yavanna, bo-banna
Banana-fana fo-fanna
Fee-fi-mo-manna
Yavanna!
Haha, too true... Banana Yavanna... I bet that's what the other Valar used to call her when they were at Eru's School for Creating Worlds Orc Smiling Smilie especially Melkor... that bully....
I used 'Unfinished Tales' because it has a profile for each of the Kings of N˙menor and I didn't have to spend much time finding it,

So try:

_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (four words of 3, 9, 2, and 7 letters length respectivly.)
I also think you know Unfinished Tales, as well as I know The Silm. Elf Winking Smilie

Okay well for this one, since I'm first I think I'll go with tradition and ask for an "A" please.
Yes! Happy Elf Smilie We have one A for Meneldur.

So now it reads:

_ _ _ / _ _ _ A _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Hmmm I think I'd like to try an "N" please.
I'll go for an R please...

You need to add the previous solutions to the list on the front page Grondy... we wouldn't want the same puzzle again Orc Smiling Smilie
Yes! Happy Elf Smilie We have one A for Meneldur and four Rs for Loss.

So now it reads:

_ _ _ / _ _ _ A R _ _ R _ / _ _ / _ _ R _ _ _ R


Sorry, Orc Sad Smilie nary an N.

I done dood it, dude, thanks for the reminder. Happy Elf Smilie
Hmmmmmmm I think I'd like a "T" this time around.
Yes! Happy Elf Smilie We have one A and two Ts for Meneldur and four Rs for Loss.

So now it reads:

T _ _ / _ _ _ A R T _ R _ / _ _ / _ _ R _ _ _ R

Sorry, Orc Sad Smilie nary an N.
I'll guess a Y please, I feel like a Y fits in...
Nope! Orc Sad Smilie

However, we still have one A and two Ts for Meneldur and four Rs for Loss.

So it still reads:

T _ _ / _ _ _ A R T _ R _ / _ _ / _ _ R _ _ _ R

Sorry, Orc Sad Smilie nary an N nor a Y.
Grondy, what about an 'e'?
No Y eh? Well, in that case, I'll go for a P
Yes Happy Elf Smilie we still have one A and two Ts for Meneldur; one P and four Rs for Loss; and three Es for Glorifindel.

So it now reads:

T _ E / _ E P A R T _ R E / _ _ / _ _ R _ _ _ R

Sorry, Orc Sad Smilie nary an N nor a Y.
May I have a D please ?
Yes Happy Elf Smilie we still have one A and two Ts for Meneldur; one P and four Rs for Loss; three Es for Glorifindel; and one D for Mellon.

So it now reads:

T _ E / D E P A R T _ R E / _ _ / _ _ R _ _ _ R

Sorry, Orc Sad Smilie nary an N nor a Y.
What abouty an "H" Grondy and also an "U".
The departure of Boromir?
Sorry Glorifindel,Orc Sad Smilie you may only guess one letter per round, unless you choose to solve the whole puzzle, like Mellon has correctly done. It was the first chapter title of TTT.

Your turn Mellon Happy Elf Smilie
