    Good one C! Let's keep the alliteration alive!

    power pass

    First thing that's springs to mind is the 'power' of being the White Wizard 'passing' from Saruman to Gandalf?

    One of these characters is part of the answer, and there is also a physical object too.

    Bilbo passing the Ring of Power to Frodo via Gandalf?

    I feel that is slightly superior to the other similar examples that might apply (e.g., Cirdan passing Narya to Gandalf, Gil-Galad passing Vilya to Erond, Celebrimbor gifting Nenya to Galadriel, Narya and Vilya to Gil-Galad) because the One Ring is the ring of power rather than one of the lesser rings of power.

    That was it. I pass the riddle-stick of power to you Vil.

    Alright, here is a harder variation on a riddle I once posed the group. I will post a simplified version after a few days if it turns out I have gone too far with this one.

    Boxed 126

    Okay, how about this:

    Boxed 47 and 79.

    Hmm, will have to ponder this...

    I ain't got a real guess yet, but would I be on the right track in thinkin that this has something to do with two terms if imprisonment or confinement?

    No. That's not it. Focus on the numbers. Once you get that figured out you can solve for the box.

    More of a math problem huh? I hear there's basically three kinds of people when it comes to math: those who can count and those who can't.

    I'll keep working on it then.

    Actually, it isn't a math problem.

    So nothing to do with 47 and 79 being prime numbers?

    Not as intended. If you can construct a good JRRT answer on the basis, I would accept it (and more power to you).

    Hmmm tricky! Anything to do with dates? or ages of persons? or something like that?

  18. #2643
    Sorry, I was away camping. No dates or ages intended. The means of decoding the numbers is outside of JRRT lore.

    You mean a 3 2 1? Ugh, these drive me crazy.

    Well, if it helps, the key to the solution is not a pop culture reference or even a classical culture reference. It does require some knowledge commonly learned in the basic high school curriculum.

    Well, the fact that 47 and 79 are primes does stand out. But the first clue with 126 doesn't fit. Pondering on...

  22. #2647
    Wilros already noted that they are primes. This is not a math problem.

    Greetings folks.
    I have decided to end my hiatus and pop in again on these "word" threads.
    This has been and interesting puzzle.
    I think I have it figured though.
    47 is silver in the periodic table of the elements (Ag).
    And 79 is gold (Au).
    Boxed up are they?
    From The Hobbit:
    In the end he would only take two small chests, one filled with silver, and the other with gold, such as one strong pony could carry.
