I think so too, Happy Elf Smilie So, I'll guess an H will be in your next puzzle, please.
Here's a tough one, with an H for Grondy to start it off:

_ / _ _ _ _ / _ H _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _

(8 words of lengths 1, 4, 5, 3, 2, 4, 2, and 3 respectively)

Best of luck.
Mormegil is correctSmile Smilie
May I have an H please ?
Sorry, gave my only H to Grondy Orc Smiling Smilie

Mayhaps there would please be an L or two.
A / _ _ _ _ / _ H _ _ _ / _ A _ / _ _ / _ A _ _ / _ _ / _ L _

(8 words of lengths 1, 4, 5, 3, 2, 4, 2, and 3 respectively)

Grondy gets 1L
Mellon gets 3 As
May I have a S this time please ?
I do have to guess that there is at least one D and I think it will be at the tail end of the sentence. Won't it please?
I'll go with a C please Orc Smiling Smilie
A / _ _ _ _ / _ H _ _ _ / _ A S / _ _ / D A _ S / _ _ / _ L D

(8 words of lengths 1, 4, 5, 3, 2, 4, 2, and 3 respectively)

No C for Loss
2 Ss for Mellon
2 Ds Grondy

The letter monster claims a C! Bad! Smilie

Found it; two Is please. I knew I had heard it before; though I never finished wading through the complete book.
A / _ I _ _ / _ H _ _ _ / W A S / I _ / D A _ S / _ _ / _ L D

(8 words of lengths 1, 4, 5, 3, 2, 4, 2, and 3 respectively)

In the last round:

1 W for Turgon
2 Is for Grondy (Would you like to solve the puzzle, or leave it to the others? Congrats though, it was a tough one.)

The letter monster has claimed a C! Bad! Smilie
can i hav an n
I'll leave it for others for a day or two and ask for a Y please.
A / _ I N _ / _ H _ _ _ / W A S / I N / D A Y S / _ _ / _ L D

(8 words of lengths 1, 4, 5, 3, 2, 4, 2, and 3 respectively)

Grondy gets his Y, and Turgon gets 2 Ns

The letter monster has claimed a C! Bad! Smilie
Best if I take the K now, please; that should be enough for someone else to guess it. Happy Elf Smilie
o and f
A / K I N _ / _ H _ _ _ / W A S / I N / D A Y S / O F / O L D

(8 words of lengths 1, 4, 5, 3, 2, 4, 2, and 3 respectively)

A K for Grondy, and Turgon gets 2 Os and an F.

The letter monster has claimed a C! Bad! Smilie
I'll guess a G Orc Smiling Smilie
Okay, as no one wanted to guess it and post the new one, I will: A king there was in days of old', which is the first line from the poem entitled 'The Gest of Beren and Lúthien', which is found in The Lays of Beleriand, (H.O.M.E. Volume 3)

So try:

_ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (four words of 5, 2, 6, and 7 letters length respectivly.)
May I start with an A please ?
Yes, Happy Elf Smilie we have one A for Mellon.

So now it reads:

_ A _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _
May I have a N this time please ?
I'll still go with my G Tongue Smilie
O Please.
Yes, Happy Elf Smilie we have one A and one N for Mellon; one G for Loss; and two Os for Aldaradan.

So now it reads:

_ A _ O _ / O _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ N G

Hooray, Happy Elf Smilie still no incorrect guesses.
May I have an E please ?
Yes, Happy Elf Smilie we have one A, two Es, and one N for Mellon; one G for Loss; and two Os for Aldaradan.

So now it reads:

_ A _ O _ / O _ / _ _ _ _ E _ / _ E _ _ _ N G

Hooray, Happy Elf Smilie still no incorrect guesses.
Great Smile Smilie May I have a I please ?
Yes, Happy Elf Smilie we have one A, two Es, two Is, and one N for Mellon; one G for Loss; and two Os for Aldaradan.

So now it reads:

_ A _ O _ / O _ / _ I _ _ E _ / _ E _ _ I N G
Hooray, Happy Elf Smilie still no incorrect guesses.

And that almost takes care of the vowels in this one Orc Grinning Smilie
A D or two please
I'll go with a U to be awkward Orc Smiling Smilie
Yes! Orc Smiling Smilie We have one A, one D, two Es, two Is, and one N for Mellon; one G for Loss; and two Os for Aldaradan.

So now it reads:

_ A _ O _ / O _ / _ I _ _ E _ / D E _ _ I N G

Sorry Orc Sad Smilie there is nary a U.
I think I see it;

Mayor of Michel Delving? Tongue Smilie
That's it Loss; your turn now. And well done, by the way. Happy Elf Smilie
Thanks Orc Smiling Smilie

And here we go;

_ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (6,2,7)
Congrats Loss Smile Smilie May I start with an O please`?
Well, I guess I'll guess an L or two for my openning number, or letter, as it were. Please.
F?
Ding Ding Ding!!! First round...

_ _ _ _ L _ / O F / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (6,2,7)

We have one O for Mellon *waves*
One L for Grondy *low bow*
and one F for Caudimordax *throws a stick of gum*

and the second word is worked out...

Ding Ding Ding!!! End of first round...
Battle of Bywater? May not be the answer, but it fits. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
You've got it Grondy! *takes off hat* Orc Grinning Smilie A very well done my friend... Just having sweet revenge on me from earlier? Touché...

In fact I was going to PM you Grondy with the answer as I am going on vacation tomorrow and I won't be able to add in the letters, so this is better Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Okay, have a most excellent vacation Loss. Happy Elf Smilie and the rest of you can try:

_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (three words of 3, 10, and 7 letters)
May I start with a T please ?
Let me enter a R or two, please!

Long time no see (or read)!
E?

Quote:
one F for Caudimordax *throws a stick of gum*


I don't get it?
Yes, Orc With Thumbs Up Smilie we have one T for Mellon; two Rs for Rafael; and four Es for Caudimordax.

So now it reads:

T _ E / _ _ _ _ E _ _ _ E R / _ _ R _ _ E _

Hooray!Orc Smiling Smilie No incorrect guesses.

If the next person's letter guessed also gives doulble the number of of the last person's, I'll be very surprized, as there are only thirteen blanks left and I don't think eight of them being the same letter would make a very Tolkienesque phrase. Orc Grinning Smilie
May I have a S please ?
