    Arathaert you are definitely headed down the right path and one of the things you have mentioned is the 2nd half of Step 2 in the 3-2-1. For the 1st half of Step 2, think of an alternate word for horse.

    Horse Maggot Dog -> Steed Wolf/Wolf Steed -> Warg?

    (Also, please tell me I'm not the only one who is slightly bugged that Tolkien's name in the thread title is missing the L...)

    LOL, I had never noticed that mis-spelling before. I'm sure I'll notice it every time I check this thread now!

    As for your answer, as I said previously, you are headed in the right direction in general, but in this case, neither Wolf or Steed are the clues I have in mind to get you to the final answer.

    Celebdil? Horse -> mount -> mountain, and fang -> tine? Far-fetched.

    Actually Dweorg, you are very close to the mark. I believe you have the correct 2 clues in the 3-2-1 sequence :P

    Horse Maggot Dog -> Mount Fang -> Orthanc!

    Orthanc translated is roughly Mount Fang isn't it?

    Yes, Orthanc is the correct answer. Sorry Arathaert, you got beat by 20 mins!

    Boraxxe, the floor is yours.

    As owner of the floor, I hereby announce that shoes must be removed before any treading is attempted.

    Next one: (3-2-1) as per this:
    A three-word clue implementing the two-step concept (thanks Vilnas) leading to a one-word Tolkien answer.

    In other words:

    The clue will consist of three words that may or may not be Tolkien related.
    This clue will lead to something (any number of words) that is not Tolkien related.
    That intermediate step will lead back to a one-word Tolkien related (from the canon) word.

    Gotham's puzzler would be Riddler, I'd assume?

    50-50 punt here but I'll go for Bilbo Baggins.

    Bilbo was the one-word answer (no penalty of the surname)

    Your turn!

    Tantelisingly close. Lúthien is the undisguised Barbara Gordon to the Bat Girl I'm looking for.

    Ah, that gave it away!

    California psychedelic musicians -> The Grateful Dead -> the oathbreakers / the Grey Host / the not-so-living Men of Dunharrow

    My reasoning is that the oathbreakers were grateful when Aragorn freed them after their service to him.

    The sig-quote gave us a handy hint with that one.
