~* ELVISH GAMES *~

Let’s have some fun with Tolkien’s invented languages!

There’s a great website HERE that helps you easily create
word searches, criss-cross puzzles, cryptograms, and other games.
You can also post riddles, tengwar transcriptions... whatever fun activities you can think of!

How It Works:

~ Anyone can post a game in this thread ~ include instructions if necessary ~
~ Games and activities must be related to Tolkien’s languages ~ please state which language you’re using ~
~ One game at a time ~ wait until the third day after a game has been posted before posting a new one ~
~ Players answer here, whited out ~ the game’s creator will let people know it they’re right ~
~ Tribute will be given to participants ~
~ If you need an image uploaded, email it to
Alkthoniel@hotmail.com 
~
~ If you use the aforementioned site to make a puzzle, please post with it "
Created with Puzzlemaker on DiscoverySchool.com" ~

WORD SEARCHES:  If you are posting a Word Search you can list the words that are hidden and have players give the row and column where each starting letter is found. Or you can give a category and have players list all the words they find, whited out.

ACCENTS: Most of these games don’t allow accents to be used. Do not double or triple vowels to show accents (do not use duur to represent dûr, write it simply as dur).

Hehe Lori, so it wasn’t too wrong. How could I have forgotten that? Shame on me!

Actually I planned to wait until a new thread would have been opened, but I seem to be a little hasty lately, so here I go:

Lillyth *I thought that the answer might be crebain, these were the only crow like creatures that I could think of other than the ravens, but that obviously doesn’t fit in the spaces as it is a longer word*

Melyanna, everything’s complete and correct! Very well done!

Sea ~ Yes, your intuition didn’t fail you. But I’m looking for a single one of them, so you’ve got to make the word a singular, then it should fit in. And yes, I know I’m mean... ~

Lori and Arwil, looks good, except for the spelling of no.5 ~ It is Craban instead of Creban ~ Good job though!

Drat. I thought it’d be like Sindarin - you change the part behind and get the singular term (er, I think). I’ve learnt a lesson: Never post without checking the EoA first.

Arwil, as far as my rather poor Sindarin studies went, I understood that final and non-final syllables change differentely when a word is pluralized. In this case, the non-final a of craban changes to e, whereas the final a becomes ai. Of course this doesn’t help much, because a non-final e would stay an e anyway, even if pluralized. According to The Thain’s Book (click link) the term craban might be adapted into the dunlandish language from Sindarin carach and Quenya karko. Now I’m confused, I always believed it was a Sindarin term already...

Catran, everything is correct, except for no.5 again. *points at explanation above*

Arry, all look good and correct
Lillyth - ooh, my bad, I tried to make plural into singular... I guess I did not do that well on that, hehe. Great puzzle, btw!

All correct of course, Tarín!

Never mind, Lori! As I I’ve said above, it’s not so easy to get the correct singular form if you don’t know the origins of the word (and who would know such things but a few selected scholars... and I’m definitely none of them!)

Lillyth, good luck with that last one! ^_^ All of the others are correct except Forlond’s position.
Lori, I’ve always been evil, it’s just that you never notice. *grins* You’ve found all the words but the positions of Alqualondë and Edhellond are a bit off.
Mely and Catran, all of them are correct!

I also noticed that the puzzle’s axes look odd on Firefox. Ah well. *shrugs*

Carnil and Sea, you’ve got all of them correct, but next time, remember to white out the words together with the coordinates if the words weren’t listed out by the maker of the puzzle.

Ah, great puzzle Mely! The short words only make it harder to hunt down! And the last two took me more than an hour!

ALDA --> A11-A14
ANDO --> D2-A5
ANNA --> K4-H7 or A1-A4
HARMA --> I7-E7
HWESTA --> M3-M8
LASSELANTA --> N13-E13
NAMARIE --> A6-G6
PALANTIRI --> K15-C7
QUESSE --> B1-G6
SILME --> I9-M5
TENGWA --> F10-A15
THULE --> G3-K3
UNGWE --> H5-D1
WILWARIN --> B15-I8

I can’t believe that I didn’t white out my answers - that would have saved me so much effort.   Anyway, here are my answers to Mely’s puzzle.

Alda:  A11 - A14
Ando:  D2 - A5
Anna:  This word actually appears twice, I guess not intentionally A1 - D4 and K4 - H7
Harma:  I7 - E7
Hwesta:  M3 - M8
Lasselanta:  N13 - E13
Namarie:  A6 - G6
Palantiri:  K15 - C7
Quesse:  B1 - G6
Silme:  I9 - M5
Tengwa:  F10 - A15
Thule:  G3 - K3
Ungwe:  H5 - D1
Wilarin:  B15 - I8
Yanta:  N8 - N4

I wont even attempt to find the other two words, my knowledge of Quenya is even worse than my knowledge of Sindarin.

Arwil, yes you got them although I think you misread your own writing for one of the annas. Wonderful on the two extra words! They were tricky spelled sideways and bottom to top.
Mrs Daywalker, perfect. I can understand about the Quenya -- if I didn’t know what they were, I would have only used half of the first word.
for both of you!

I’m glad you liked it, Lori. I enjoyed picking the words.
I think that ’Lasselanta’ may have moved because of Firefox, but the ’spider-web’ hasn’t moved.

For any still looking, the two extra words were yavannamire and malinorni [plural of malinorne]. The latter is ’mallorn’ in Quenya, and the former is the "Jewel of Yavanna", a fragrant smelling evergreen with scarlet globed fruits. There are actually a lot of different trees in Numenor, mostly evergreens, gifts of the Eldar of Eressea.

This will date me, Lori, what do you do with this kind of puzzle? I’ve never done one like it.

oh sorry Mely, here is what you should do - the lines of the song (Tolkien’s of course) is cut into the four-letter/character tiles (as seen above). You need to organise this in the way that you could read the verse.
I made this one ’cause we had too much of word searches and I wanted something else *g*

Here’s my answer to Lori’s puzzle, hopefully its right. *"Beneath the Moon and under star, he wandered far from northern strands, bewildered on enchanted ways, beyond the days of mortal lands." from the Song of Earendil.*

My answer to Lori’s puzzle, that was a hard one, though it’s great to see something new around here.  ~ Beneath the moon and under star, he wandered far from northern strands.  Bewildered on enchanted ways, beyond the days of mortal lands.  ~ Song of ëarendil ~

Dear Lori,this is simpler than I at first made it, but trickier than I like. All I had to do was cut up the little boxes and piece them together. [I thought the song was in proper order and I had to change the letters to read it...] ! I finally recognized ’mortal lands’ and other phrases. I think it’s this: * Beneath the moon and under star he wandered far from northern strands bewildered on enchanted ways beyond the days of mortal lands. "Bilbo’s song of Earendil"*

all right people, I believe we did not have tengwar translations for a long period of time, ever since Naur left his tengwar translations thread.  I sincerily hope that I can use Tara’s old Tengwar chart. So here we go:


Chart created by: Taramuiliel

and here is the phrase for the translation:


Have fun

Yay! I’m gonna avoid the last puzzle because I can’t make heads or tails out of it. *cough* Did I mention I love Tengwar transcriptions? ^_^ (Btw, you mispelt Taramiluiel. )

My answer --> Ai, laurie lantar lassi surinen. Yeni unótime ve rámar aldaron.

Lori, I must remind you that Sindarin words and Quenya words are written in different Tengwar forms.

Lori, you make a lovely Celebrian!
*Ai: laurie la[n]tar lassi surinen, yeni unotime ve ramar aldaron.
I don’t do these letters too well, so I’ve compensated by looking up meaning of Galadriel’s Namarie: "Ah! like gold fall the leaves in the wind, long years numberless as the wings of trees!" ["Farewell to Lothlorien", FotR].

Oooh, Tengwar, it’s been way too long since I’ve seen this!
~ Ai: laurie lassi surinen, yeni unotime ve ramar aldaron. ~ Unsure about the translation to this one, it looks (not sure on it since it’s been a long time since I’ve done a lot of translations) more like it is Quenya than Sindarin, and I don’t know the former hardly at all. ~

Well, it’s been three days since Lori posted that last tengwar puzzle, so I thought perhaps I’d put something up for a bit of a change.  It’s a fallen phrase, from one of the soundtracks.  Enjoy!  And as always, puzzle created with puzzlemaker.com

Here’s my answer to Tarin’s puzzle: * "Hlasta!  Quetis Ilfirimain: Corma turien te, Corma tuvien, Corma tultien te, Huines se nutien.", which was taken from the song, "The Prophecy", and translates as "Listen!  It speaks to those who were not born to die.

Mely - so sorry to keep you waiting with my confirmation of your answer: it is all correct, surely  It was from the Lays of Beleriand.

**O Elbereth Gilthoniel o menel palan-diriel. Le nallon si di-nguruthos a tiro nin Fanuilos!   Tolkien translated it as a comparison to the verse in the song “I Sit Beside the Fire”: O Elbereth, Star-Kindler, gazing afar to thee I cry, here beneath-death-horror.

Lori, I’m only 2 1/2 days behind. This is the previous one:
The grasses hissed; their tassels bent; the reeds were rattling--on it went; o’er shaken pool under heavens cool, where racing clouds were torn and rent.
Punctuation is a little fuzzy here. I’ll try to get the next one done on time.

Lori, may I suggest copying a link to your chart over to this page?  For those of us on dial-up it takes awhile to load both this and the last page to get to it.   Anyway, my answer is as follows.
A king he was on carven throne, in many-pillared halls of stone. With golden roof and silver floor, and runes of power upon the door. Part of a dwarven chant about the Dwarrowdelf that is. ~

Mely, tis quite all right *g* and your answer is perfectly correct
Tarin - do you ever need confirming? Perfectly correct as usual. And as per your request...

Very good, Mrs. Daywalker. I tried very hard to find a mistake in your answers ( I looked two times) but I couldn’t.  Anyway, you probably did it in about 10 seconds and said that it was hard! (Just Kidding!)   I’m terribly sorry if I sound impatient, but does anyone know when and how much tribute we get? It’s been a while since we got it.

I don’t believe this is tributed any longer Eo, no one’s been by since... Lae stepped down I think.  Anyway, answers to your puzzle, though also remember for future reference - this is supposed to be of language puzzles, not people or races(even though I know you used to, you may recognize me as Tarín) when not using one of Tolkien’s languages.

Baggins ~ A12 - G6 ~
Bilbo ~ G4 - C8 ~

Sk8erphan: All of your answers are correct.

Sheik: When I was on the plaza a few months ago I posted similar puzzles to the one I just posted. The rules were exactly the same then, and no one ever told me that the type of puzzle I was creating wasn’t allowed. Also, the thread’s first post says that this thread is tributed by Ally. So either the first post needs a little updating, or we still get tribute. Anyway, all of your answers are correct.

Bilbo: ~G4 - C8~
Brandybuck: ~N14 - E5~
Frodo: ~J7 - J11~

yay, a new word-search! woot-woot :P here are my answers:

Baggins:  *A12 - G6*
Bilbo:  *G4 - C8*
Brandybuck:  *N14 - E5*
Frodo:  *J7 - J11*
Lobelia:  *C13 - I13*
Merry:  *E14 - A14*
Old Took:  *H7- H1*
Pippen:  *I1 - N6*
Rosy:  *E7 - B4*
Sam:  *D10 - F8*
Took:  *B10 - B7*

As to the tribute thing - Tarin is right, Lae used to give trib while she was an admin. I asked Fea for small trib to those doing the tengwar transcriptions, but after that I’m in great doubt that any trib has been given. And the first post states that Ally can help uploading images, it is not said that it’s exclusively up to her to give trib *g*

Alright, here’s my answer to Tarin’s puzzle...

"Nêbâbîtham Magânanê.  Nêtabdam dâurad.  Nêpâm nêd abârat-aglar îdô Nidir nênâkham.  Bârî ’n Katharâd." which is Adûnaic, and translates as "We deny our maker.  We cling to the darkness.  We grasp for ourselves power and glory.  Now we come, the Nine, Lords of Eternal Life." which is taken from The Revelation of the Ringwraiths. *

~ Nêbâbîtham Magânanê
Nêtabdam dâurad
Nêpâm nêd abârat-aglar

Well its been three days since the last puzzle, and its ages since I made one for here, so here you go.  Its one of those letter tile things, and the answer is a line taken from one of the movies.

As usual, this puzzle was made using puzzlemaker.com

Ish totally loving it *g* Here are the answers to Sea’s latest puzzle:

*Cuiva nwalca Carnirassë! Nai yarvaxëa rasselya taltuva ñotto-carinnar! ~ These words were uttered by Saruman and maybe translated as the following "Wake up cruel Redhorn! May your blood-stained horn shall fall upon the enemy-heads!" ~ tis from FOTR movie *

Lol Lori, your answer to my last puzzle was indeed correct.  Now onto Sea’s puzzle...
~ Cuiva nwalca Carnirassë! Nai yarvaxëa rasselya taltuva ñotto-carinnar!  ~ Said by Saruman in one of the movies.  Translates as "Wake up cruel Redhorn! May it be your blood-stained horn shall fall upon the enemy-heads!" ~

Yay, another puzzle! Here’s my answer:

~ "Cuiva nwalca Carnirassë! Nai yarvaxëa rasselya taltuva ñotto-carinnar!" - these are Saruman’s words, and the translation would be: "Wake up cruel Redhorn! May your blood-stained horn shall fall upon the enemy-heads!" - from FOTR. ~

This is the tile puzzle response. I spent a lot of time trying to make it something about the Helacarxe and then realized I was spelling it wrong.
*Saruman in movie FotR: Cuiva nwalca Carnirasse! Nai yarvaxea rasselyn taltuva notto-carinnar! ’Wake up cruel Caradhras! May it be your blood-stained horn will fall upon enemy heads!*

Okay, this one was hard, but I think I got it:

* Cuiva nwalca Carnirassë! Nai yarvaxëa rasselya taltuva ñotto-carinnar! *
Translation: * Wake up cruel Redhorn! May your blood-stained horn shall fall upon the enemy heads*
I think that my translation is a little off, because it sounds a little wierd.

Hmm, where did that crossword disappear to, I had half the answers and was going to post them.   Well never mind.  Eolord, thats the answer that I was looking for, and your translation is pretty much right, I think there was only one extra word there.

Hmm... same question as Sea.  However, seeing as it’s definitely been over three days since the last puzzle went up - here’s a new one.  A tengwar teaser for ya’ll, lyrics from LotR - enjoy.

Yes, I also like this song very much.

This is how it should be read (the sign indicates a long vowel):  O mo’r henion i dhu’ //  Ely siriar, e’l si’la // Ai! Ani’ron Undo’miel //  Tiro! E’l eria e mo’r //  I lir en e’l luitha uren //  Ai! Ani’ron...   That’s what was sung in the first movie in Imladris, right?

Translation : "From darkness I understand the night// dreams flow, a star shines// Ah! I desire Evenstar /// Look! A star rises out of the darkness// The song of the stars enchants my heart// Ah! I desire..."

By the way, you’ve missed the last "o" in the first word of the fourth line

Ack!  I did?  I thought something looked a bit off when I c’ped it from word to paint, must’ve lost a letter there somehow...anyway Elenwen, your answer is most definitely right, well done!

Here is a new question--one more tengwar puzzle.  It’s not quite like Sheik’s, as I have written vowels above consonants (well, just like it was on the One Ring, for instance.) I have honestly tried observing all the spelling and punctuation rules... This is my first puzzle, so please don’t judge too strictly...

Here it goes-- a saying in Quenya.  Try and guess who said it as well.  I’m sorry for the quality of the picture--I hand-drew it in Paint...

here is my answer to Tarin’s puzzle:
*"From darkness I understand the night: dreams flow, a star shines. Ah! I desire Evenstar. Look! A star rises out of the darkness. The song of the star enchants my heart. Ah! I desire..." ~ Aniron,  FOTR soundtrack *
Elenwen - we usually post new puzzles after three days have passed since the last one  And another thing - did you write in quenya (if so, could you please provide a chart XD)
Elenwen 24/Apr/2006 at 04:49 AM
Craftsman of Minas Tirith Points: 1452 Posts: 695 Joined: 31/Mar/2002

Loriwaynen:  Oops! Sorry! I tohought if I was the first to answer Sheik’s puzzle correctly, and got her approval, I had a right to post a new one at once.  Won’t do it again.

Yes, the saying is in Quenya (as I wrote in the post with the puzzle itself). All the tengwar’s meanings are in the Appendix E to Lotr, but here are some charts for your convinience. (Though I didn’t quite understand what you meant by XD, is this what you wanted?)

The consonants:

Here are the vowels (written above consonants; read AFTER the consonant in Quenya). What’s writtne in this chart below the carriers, denotes reduced form of a vowel (never found in Quenya, but plenty in Westron). If there is no consonant to precede a vowel, a carrier (see above) is used.  if a vowel is long, the sign for it is doubled, or a long carrier is used. A long carrier is always used to indicate long a and i, as you can’ double the sign for a (too many dots), and in the case of i doubling the sign would change its meaning, as seen in the chart below: 

I hope this will help you!

I seem to have forgotten a couple of things.

Two dots below a consonant indicate palatalization (No such thing in English, it’s usually represented by the sond /j/ (like in yes)by most English-speakers I know, but it really should add such shade to the sound as a tilde above the letter N adds to it in Spanish, for instance. It’s like y in "Quenya"). 

Underlining a consonant (curved in the mode I wrote the saying in, but may be also straight) means a consonant is doybled.

That’s all, I think.  Good luck!

Here’s my answer to Tarin’s puzzle (I will work on Elenwen’s puzzle later):

"O mor henion i dhu:  Ely siriar, el sila, ai aniron undomiel, pir el elia e mor, i lir en el luitha uren ai aniron.", which translates as "From darkness I understand the night,: dreams flow, a star shines, ah I desire evenstar, Look, a star rises out of the darkness, the song of the star enchants my heart, ah I desire." which is from the song Aniron (I Desire) from the FOTR soundtrack. *

Elenwen, your puzzle is nicely painted, don’t worry. But if you could make it more readable (say, write it in word using special quenya font and c/p here) , that would be great (honestly), cause me, silly elf, is being slightly confused

Here is the New Improved Calligraphic Version of my puzzle *wipes the ink from her quill and puts it away*.  There are two changes in it: 1) I have corrected a slip of my quill in the third word of the first sentence (the last vowel);  2) I have rewritten the last but one word in the last sentence in its full form (added the last vowel).  It is in the contracted form originally, but it’s not good to use such contractions in writing.

Loriwaynen:  Me, silly child of Men, is being slightly confused by your abbreviations.   If you want me to understand you, please write it in full form.

Yay, new puzzle! Here is my answer:

~ Nîn o Chithaeglir, lasto beth daer, Rimmo nîn Bruinen dan in Ulaer! - translated as: Waters of the Misty Mountains, listen to the great word, flow waters of Loudwater against the Ringwraiths! - said by Arwen in FOTR movie. ~

I have finally gotten Elenwen’s puzzle. Et Earello Endorenna utulien. Sinome maruvan ar Hildinyar tenna Ambar-metta.
I checked ROTK when I finally realized the quotation wasn’t in Namarie, and, finding the quote, I was able to capitalize and hyphenate properly. Otherwise, that would have been impossible.   I doubled the ‘u’ in utuulien initially, and it took a while to realize that the ‘y’ in Hildinyar was before the ‘a’, but otherwise the alphabet and pointing of vowels is relatively simple [I think].

Geez, I seems to have missed a lot
First, my answer to Elenwen’s puzzle: *
Et Eärello Endorenna utúlien. Sinome maruvan ar Hildinyar tenn’ Ambar-metta! - Translation will be the following "Out of the Great Sea to Middle-earth I am come. In this place will I abide, and my heirs, unto the ending of the world." ~ these words were first spoken by Elendil when he came to the Middle-Earth and then later by Aragorn, when taking the crown.  ~ [ROTK, THe Steward and the King]*
Second, my answer to Sea’s puzzle: *Nîn o chithaeglir, lasto beth daer;  Rimmo nîn Bruinen, dan in ulaer!  - the translation is the following "Waters of the Misty Mountains, listen to the great word.  Flow waters of Loudwater, against the ringwraiths!"  Those are Arwen’s words in FOTR movie*

Here’s my answer to Nienna’s puzzle:
*
"Aníron i e broniatha, ad ae periatham athar i methid en-amar hen. Aníron i e círatha na Valannor." which I belive translates as "I would have her leave these shores and be with her people. I would have her take the ship to Valinor.", which was said by Aragorn to Galadriel in the scene for FOTR (the extended edition I think) where the fellowship are leaving Lorien. *

Doorwarden of the Mark Points: 3085 Posts: 1995 Joined: 14/Jun/2005

Umm, I hope this is the correct answer to Nienna’s Puzzle:

###"Aníron i e broniatha, ad ae periatham athar i methid en-amar hen. Aníron i e círatha na Valanor." I think that the translation is this: "I would have her leave these shores and be with her people. I would have her take the ship to Valinor." It was said by Aragorn to Galadriel, but I think he was talking about Arwen.###

Craftsman of Minas Tirith Points: 1452 Posts: 695 Joined: 31/Mar/2002

Well, shall I give Nienna’s puzzle a try? The answer is as follows:

~ "Aníron i e broniatha, ad ae periatham athar i methid en-amar hen. Aníron i e círatha na Valannor." which means:  "I would have her leave these shores and be with her people. I would have her take the ship to Valinor."  I think Aragorn said it about Arwen in the first LotR movie. ~

Yay, Rohirric, something I can vaguely understand (well about three words, but thats better than my Sindarin).  Here’s my answer to Lori’s puzzle (I hope):

* "Swift déadlic géar Stieppað geond willan.  Ac éagan gíet lóciað Beorhtre gesihðe;  Heorte gíet béateð.", which translates as "Swift mortal years outpace the will.  But the eyes still watch clear-sighted.  The great heart is beating still.", and is taken from the song "The King" from The Two Towers. *

~ Swift déadlic géar Stieppað geond willan. Ac éagan gíet lóciað Beorhtre gesihðe; Heorte gíet béateð.

"A Bereth thar Ennui Aeair!

Yup-yup, Sea, there was no need to post where the words are, only the phrase. And yours is surely correct

Okay, it’s been almost a week since the last puzzle was posted, so I believe it is time for another one. *g*
It is a fallen phrase hiding a couple of lines from the poem taken from LotR. Hope you’ll enjoy it!

Just incase you thought that no-one was trying your puzzle Nienna, I am attempting to solve it, I am just stuggling to find the answer (probably me being dumb again), but I am not giving up yet, so hopefully I will have an answer son.

Hehe, well I’ve just been thinking that everybody has gone from this thread!  No worries Sea, take your time for solving the puzzle. I hope it is not too hard for ya (’cause it’s really simple, IMHO) *g* I’ll be waiting for the answer. :P

Okay, since it’s been almost a week and I can not see any answers to my puzzle (am I blind or there is another reason? *g*), I will just post the answer and leave the floor open to anyone who wants to give us a new puzzle. So, here it is:

"The long years have passed like swift draughts of the sweet mead in lofty halls beyond the West, beneath the blue vaults of Varda wherein the stars tremble in the song of her voice, holy and queenly." - translation of the song that Galadriel sang, taken from FOTR, Farewell to Lorien.

 

I do hope now that someone will grab the floor soon. :P

Nienna - looks like your puzzle was a real pain to us all  My poor head still aches from hours spent pondering and trying to solve it *g*
Anyways, you are right, tis time for a shiny new puzzle *g* First you need to unscamble the words above (I’ll help you a bit, saying that tis river-names) and then using the letters guess the hidden phrase (as usual, created with puzzlemaker.com). Enjoy

Wow! That one sure took me a long time to do! Here is the final answer that I got:

( "Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes." ) Do you want me to show my work? (#1-15 rivers?) I hope not, and I don’t think that I need to, right?

What a nice puzzle Lori, I really enjoyed it (my head is okay, luckily :P). Here is the answer:

~ Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes. ~

High Counsellor of Elrond Points: 22212 Posts: 17274 Joined: 16/Aug/2005
Eolord - of course you didn’t need to post all the fifteen rivers (only if you wished to). As to the phrase - it is absolutely correct *g*
Nienna - all righty, next time I’ll make a puzzle that will produce headaches  Glad you enjoyed this one. And your answer is surely correct as well.
Eolord 29/May/2006 at 05:47 PM
Doorwarden of the Mark Points: 3085 Posts: 1995 Joined: 14/Jun/2005

Just to annoy you, I’m going to post the 15 rivers!  Here they are:

1.(Teiglin)
2.(Silverlode)
3.(Withywindle)
4.(Celebrant)
5.(Anduin)
6.(Nimrodel)
7.(Lefnui)
8.(Gwathlo)
9.(Mitheithel)
10.(Esgalduin)
11.(Rivil)
12.(Limlight)
13.(Sirannon)
14.(Entwash)
15.(Duilwen)

Anyway, your puzzle isn’t really related to elvish, so I take it I’m allowed to post puzzles like that too. I will try to come up with one in a couple of days, if I have the time.

Loremaster of Lothlorien Points: 7374 Posts: 4894 Joined: 02/Dec/2005
Eolord - actually, let me correct you if you don’t mind. This puzzle is of course related to Elvish, because many of the river names have the root in Sindarin language. Remember, who gave the names to all the living creatures and places?

High Counsellor of Elrond Points: 22212 Posts: 17274 Joined: 16/Aug/2005
Eolord - let me quote from the opening post: Let’s have some fun with Tolkien’s invented languages - mind the plural form *g* I believe any non plain english names Tolkien created are valid for use here. And Nienna has a point here - we (elves) named everything around us:
"Long they dwelt in their first home by the water under stars, and they walked the Earth in wonder; and they began to make speech and to give names to all things that they perceived." ~ [The Sil,
Of the Coming of the Elves]

Here’s my answer to Lori’s puzzle (better late than never).  Great idea btw, I really enjoyed this puzzle, even if it did take me forever to work out half the rivers.

* "Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.", which is taken from LOTR, Three’s Company. *

Well, methinks it’s high time a new shiny puzzle is posted and seeing that you liked the previous one, hope you’ll like this one too (as ever, created with puzzlemaker.com):

This time you need to unscramble the names of the cities of men and as usual guess the phrase. Good luckers *g*

Hope you won’t kill me for usurping the thread, but three days have passed and it is time to post a new puzzle again. Feeling not too creative, it is the same type as the previous two (made with puzzlemaker.com as before): you need to unscramble the names of seasons and such and guess the phrase. Good luckers *g*

~ Anirne hene beriad i chen lîn. Ned Imladris nauthant e le beriathar aen. - it was said by Elrond in FotR. The translation would be: ~ She wanted to protect her child.She thought in Rivendell you would be safe. ~

1. - write the text
2. - highlight the text
3. - Select ’Eru white’ or ’white’ for the color.

The blue underneath is just the automatic color it comes up with when you highlight it

Nienna: Good job. The answer you missed was ( 8. The Naith ) in case you wanted to know. And 15 is wrong(but extremely close) It should be Galadriel bain ben gilgalad.. * You should have finished reading the post at teh transaltion desk, me and Aelindis made corrections....:-)*

Aww, thanks for the correction, Harlindon! I wasn’t sure about the answer missed, so I just left an empty space instead. *g* ~ And trust me, I have been searching around for the bonus question, and after finding it, I just copied it without reading further. Ah, that hastiness :D ~

Red Saelind: I realized how unfair the bonus question was after I posted the puzzle of course, with my wonderful luck lately. Sorry about that. You are right about the ’Gorge’ question! Thanks for pointing that out. (that might be why it confused Nienna) They are all correct except for one. (and the bonus question but that one really doesn’t count)
The answer to number 2 was ( Thingol cf. Silmarillion ). excellent Job other than that

15. I am not sure what you mean by the language tidbits section, (to lazy to go looking - we have got 35° Celsius here ) - but if I got you right and you only intended to recieve a simple translation of your sentence, I would propose: Galadriel bain sui gilgalad / calad/claur Elennath / calad in-elin; there are different ways to translate this.[/WHITE]~

Tinu: All correct. For number 15, I made this puzzle to submit to the Lorien Newspaper, which has a language tidbits section that I am also submitting an article to. So, the languge tidbits part doesn’t exist yet (although I used the word ben instead of sui. ) Great job

@ Harlindon: I am not sure whether "ben" = according to, concerning; should be a adequate translation for "as" or "like". In the e Adar (VT 42) we find: "sui mín i gohenam" = like us who forgive... In my opinion this should fit much better for a comparison. ~

Better late than never, here is my answer to Lori’slast puzzle (I couldnt get onto the other comp to print it out).

* Dance all ye joyful, now dance all together!  Soft is the grass, and let foot be like feather!  The river is silver, the shadows are fleeting;  Merry is May - time, and merry our meeting.", which was taken from The Hobbit, The Last Stage. *

Harlind-MO-n, I’m not quibbling: I enjoyed the puzzle. But #2 down could perhaps be Legolas through Thranduil: "Welcome, son of Thranduil! Too seldom do my kindred journey hither from the North." [quoting Celeborn, ’Mirror of Galadriel’, FotR]   Of course, this might be ’kindred’ in sense of being another Elf...

Late once again, here’s my answer for Harlindons puzzle...

Across
5.  Galadriel
7.  Celebrian
8.  Naith
10.  Nenya
11.  Lembas
13.  Haldir
16.  Nimrodel
15.  I couldn’t work out the answer ot this one

Down
1.  Caras Galadhon
2.  Thingol
3.  Mallorn
4.  Talan
6.  Amroth
9.  Alatariel
12.  Cerin Amroth
14.  Celeborn

Before I forget, I was wondering how you guys make the puzzles where you have to unscramble the words then add the letters to the phrase?  I have tried to make them before, but puzzlemaker always puts the words as a long list going across the top of the page, rather than going down the page, and the letters that need to be unscrambled are nowhere near the boxes.

Sea, you think of the double puzzles? I have no idea, cause I had no problems while making them. Perhaps your phrase was too long, or you had too many words? *wonders*

Okay, time for another puzzle, don’t ya think? And I need to prove Sea that making double puzzles is possible *g* First, you have to unscramble the words above (those are the names of famous Middle Earth weapons), and then add the letters to the phrase. Good luck, I hope you’ll have fun!

Woot, finally a new shiny puzzle! And gah, we haven’t had cryptograms for years! *g* Here’s my answer:

~ Some like kings, terrible and splendid; and some as merry as children. And the music and the singing - not that I have had the time or the heart for much listening since we got here. But I’m getting to know some of the ways of the place. ~ (FotR; Many Meetings) ~

Now that I have finally worked out how to make Double Puzzles, I thought I would give it another go and make one for you guys.  All of the words are places in Rohan.

Woot, new puzzle. Here is my answer, Sea:

*Their horses were of great stature, strong and clean-limbed; their grey coats glistened, their long tails flowed in the wind, their manes were braided on their proud necks. ~ [TTT, The Riders of Rohan]*

Good one, Sea. here’s my answer:
*"Their horses were of great stature, strong and clean-limbed: their grey coats glistened, Their long tails flowed in the wind, their manes were braided on their proud necks." ["Riders of Rohan", TTT]*
I had a little trouble with the fourth one -- until I found the right book!

I’m glad you both liked the puzzle guys (I love making these now that I have finally worked out what I was doing wrong when making them before).  Anyway, both your your answers were 100% correct.

Here’s a Tengwar Transcription... in Latin! According to how JRRT transcribed it in some of his doodles.

Tyrhael  Do you have a chart or a link to a chart for this mode of Tengwar coz I have been looking but not able to find one.  I am sure someone did one a while ago, but wish thead it was in I have no idea, and that might even have been different.

Here is another double puzzle, so you have something to do until Tyrhael gave some hint how to solve that transcription. Words required are those of various villans. Have fun.

A very nice puzzle, Hakatri. Here is my answer:

* But the Temple itself was unshaken, and Sauron stood there upon the pinnacle and defied the lightning and was unharmed; and in that hour men called him a god and did all that he would. ~ [The Sil, Akkalabeth] *

I have it! [I think], Tyrhael. RedRada doesn’t really have knowledge of Tengwar, but does have Hammond and Scull’s J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist & Illustrator, with Figure 186. They don’t translate it, but I’ll try. If you have a chart for this script, I’d be grateful, too. It reads:
*“ab incursu et daemonio meridiano”. I think it is part of the Vulgate translation of Psalm 90, which would be: [Who dwells in the shelter of the Most High …will have no fear] “…from invasion or the noonday demon.”*

Here is my answer for Hakatri’s puzzle (I’m still working on Tyrhael’s puzzle):

"But the temple itself was unshaken, and Sauron stood there upon the pinnacle and defied the lightning and was unharmed;  and in that hour men called him a God and did all that he would."  The Silmarillion, The Akallabeth *

Okay, I think quite a time has passed since a puzzle has been posted. Here is an easy tile puzzle (created with puzzlemaker.com as usual) for ye to enjoy - it’s a phrase form either Hobbit, Lotr or Sil. Have fun

Shiiiiny new puzzle! Here is my answer coloured in Eru White.

Gah, these things take me forever to work out the answer to, so hopefully this is right...

* "I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water.  I came from the end of a bag, but no bag went over me.", which is taken from The Hobbit, Inside Information *

So, no new puzzle so far? Then it’s time for me to post one. It’s a Fallen phrase one, with the phrase taken from either Hobbit, LOTR or Sil. As usual, tis created with puzzlemaker. com. Enjoy

Lori  Sorry its taking so long to get an answer for this one, I am trying, but I am completely useless at this sort of puzzle so its taking me ages.  Just thought I would let you know that your puzzle isnt being ignored *g*.

Aww thanks, Sea  In fact I’m useless with such puzzles as well and looking at it again, I might have used a shorter phrase to make one *g*

Lori: I believe the word with é to be <Cuiviénen> as there is no other name in the Silm. or LotR that works with the letters given, but I cannot place that word anywhere according to how the boxes are blacked out! It’s been over a week; can you give a hint by showing/saying which row the é belongs in?
Lori 07/Oct/2006 at 12:30 PM
High Counsellor of Elrond Points: 22212 Posts: 17274 Joined: 16/Aug/2005
Tyrhael, I can say for sure that the word with the é is not the one you mention. This letter belongs to the second line and in the ninth row from the right. I’ll even say that it is used merely for the sake of rhyme. I do hope that helps.
