    Heehee, these are fun!

    Yikes a real brain bender for me! The only answer I can think of is Manwë. One of the great spirits, and his domain is the air I believe. Probably way off though...

    My guess was Fëanor, soul of fire, but I'd have to ask a chemist to make sure fire is really the answer

    Wow, that was hard. I'll try to make an easy but twisted one

    Exist, take place, belong.

    Hmm, tricksy, very tricksy.

    Ea, perhaps? The World that Is, to which everything belongs?

    No, it's one word made by joining both definitions

    ...okay...

    Araphor then? "Exist=to be=are=ar-" and "Belong=for=phor"

    Re: Obfuscated Tolkien Trivia

    Well, that's a relief. I was running out of ideas.

    Okay let's try this one.

    A diminished form of a multi-paged communication in print form published at a regular frequency often featuring high definition images which may serve as a venue for budding creators in combination with accumulated facts, traditions, and beliefs about a particular subject.

    Okay the only thing I can think of is the Red Book of Westmarch. It's probably way off though. This is a tough one for sure.

    Hmm, sounds like a mini-farmer's almanac.

    Hope that helps someone decipher this puzzle....

    Re: Obfuscated Tolkien Trivia

    Wow I was not expecting this to be so difficult.

    Anyway, here's a hint to keep things going...

    Though the description is of a publication, the answer is the name of a character... not a book.

    It's been another few days...perhaps another clue?

    Have to admit this one has me baffled but good! Of course that's not exactly a hard thing to do...

    Maglor

    Mag (short for magazine) A diminished form of a multi-paged communication....etc
    lor (lore misspelled) ...in combination with accumulated facts, traditions, and beliefs about a particular subject


    Edit: Maglor is one of Feanor's sons.

    Wow that was a great riddle and answer. I was thinking 'mini' + ' Elle' (the fashion magazine) = Miriel. I know, ridiculous.

    Well, I guess that's close enough....I thought that one might be a bit too easy...
