Well, WT and Gna don't seem to be about at the moment, so we've all you've got!

Edit: So we could be in trouble!

XVII. Footnotes (numbered per chapter, 'Of Dwarves and Men' in particular)

e: The clues you've been giving on XIV are to me contradictory. Which may of course just mean that I'm thinking up the wrong tree. But what's on the keyboard? Letters, digits, special characters and editing and special functions. Yet you say the answer is an "it", i.e. singular. Which makes me think of concepts like 'Alphabet', 'Script', 'Character set'. Yet Tolkien emphasised that Tengwar are not an Alphabet (App. E II i), and a Script is what Tengwar are, not what is created using them (neither is Alphabet, for that matter). And I refuse to think of 'Character set' as a Tolkienian concept.

I can just barely make 'Alphabet' work in the sense of the 'New English Alphabet' that Tolkien developed using some of the Tengwar shapes and similar characters.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
I am in too great doubt to rule. To prepare or to let be? To prepare for war, which is yet only guessed: train craftsmen and tillers in the midst of peace for bloodspilling and battle: put iron in the hands of greedy captains who will love only conquest, and count the slain as their glory? Will they say to Eru: At least your enemies were amongst them? Or to fold hands, while friends die unjustly: let men live in blind peace, until the ravisher is at the gate? What then will they do: match naked hands against iron and die in vain, or flee leaving the cries of women behind them? Will they say to Eru: At least I spilled no blood?
'When either way may lead to evil, of what worth is choice? Let the Valar rule under Eru!
- Tar Meneldur [UT 2 II:173-174]

Very well thought. But why couldn't it be one of the things I chose to put in bold ? It would be a singular, then. And remember, some tengwar also corresponded to other things than just letters, especially in Tolkien's English mode - for instance what's written on the first page of the HoMes [] What I'm looking for is the English equivalent : a character that means more than one letter.

Okay, no-one finding what object gets cut in two in LoTR would be kind of disturbing []

Can someone please guess the scrambled password and the last two guesses please ? []

Taking a quick look at the password - eh - taking another look, finding out what part of the inscription actually is the password ...

Took an extra look, as I actually never think of Edith & John Tolkien - I think of Edith & Ronald Tolkien ...

Not complaining, as I wasn't actively looking for the password.
