9 minutes...I think that's some kind of new record. Your go, Laurenendôrian.

Oath of 'nome loss mare clone

As often seems to happen with my scrambles, the beginning is a hint and the end is a mish-mash of whatever letters I had left over.

Edit: and there was one that went in two minutes on the first page of this thread.

A hint of sorts: the answer is part of direct speech.

One question:

quote:
The rules are very similar to the trivia threads. The only additions are that clues are optional and any special characters or punctuation must be included (ex: zap-rôhanar = Ar-Pharazôn) . And again, please stay within the parameters of the topic.

Did y'all decide to disregard that rule? Not that it really makes much of a difference, I already figured that Fëanor was in it, I just thought that it would have made it easier knowing.

Yeah, we generally disregard that rule. It's okay if you're just going to jumble up the letters, but it's undesirable if you want your scramble to be (or come close to) a recognisable word or phrase.

*bows low to Aerel*

*bows low to Mandos as well* (Can't do any harm...)

DEATH OF FRIEND TO BEREN, FELL HORN

There's a clue in the first part of the scramble, just in case you didn't spot it.

Unless the answer is HIGH PEOPLE MAY TURN, which I highly doubt, could I ask for a clue?

Cough...er...yes...it must have snuck in when I wasn't looking. They're tricksy things those letters. My apologies for not keeping a close enough eye on them.

I know there's something in that scramble, I just can't spot it. Would you be prepared to give a clue, Celebrían?
Edit: Maybe I'm just too sleepy.

NEIGH ON HILL, FOR SCAR'S FLOOR

I know this is a break with tradition, but please do not ignore the punctuation. There is also a clue contained within the scramble.

(Please note: the above scramble was checked thrice for mistakes.)
