    Could you remind me what a 3-2-1 question is?

    To be frank I've never been 100% sure myself! I think there's some definitions / clarifications in the first page of the thread?

    But anyway: for this clue it means there are 3 words which will 'condense' into 2 words, which will lead to the final answer, i.e. it's a series of steps. Obviously the ultimate answer is Tolkien-lore based (LoTR, Silmarillion, Hobbit) but the intermediate clues might not be.

    Hope that helps a little.

    Anyway, here goes, this is a bit of an attempt at a 3-2-1 question:

    nurses dwarven rings
    I remember the messenger from Mordor promised the dwarves of Erebor many rings if they told him about hobbits, probably not though.
    Chrisandir, man Captain 100 | Raxus dwarf Guardian 51 | Chrorin dwarf Hunter 30 | Strillo hobbit Burglar 3 | Butche man Champion 29 |
    | Falaminianteraglith dwarf Runekeeper 20 | Randu man Lore-master 17 | Nafthali woman Warden 12 |

    Nope, way off I'm afraid. EDIT: actually thinking about it that is somewhat relevant after all, nothing to do with the messenger from Mordor though.

    Clue: one of the intermediate parts of this 3-2-1 involves a number, although the final answer does not.

    I do not have the full 3-2-1 answer clear in my mind, but I think I may have figured out the final 1-word answer (if that is indeed what you are looking for).

    It has been stated (maybe by Gandalf, don't remember for sure) in reference to a dwarven ring that it "takes gold to breed gold".
    So, in a sense, gold is what nurses or feeds a dwarven ring of power.
    Perhaps the interim portion (since you mentioned a number) is a reference to the seven dwarven rings?

    Gold is not the answer.

    You have correctly identified the number in the 'intermediate' answer.

    The final answer is not a single word.

    Clue: Think of a synonym for nurses that will go with that number...

    Is it Nar perhaps

    No, although I'm intrigued to know how you arrived at that answer.

    Well one of the seven dwarven rings was Thrain's Ring and a synonym for nurse is "attendant" or "assistant"

    Riddle: nurses dwarven rings

    Clues so far:
    - the answer is not gold
    - the solution to the "dwarven rings" part is seven
    - the answer has nothing to do with Mordor
    - the answer is not a single word
    - the other part of the clue is a synonym of nurses

    Another clue: the answer is something in the heavens.

    Well, based on the above (with a bit of misspelling) I come up with:

    Valacirca, the Suckle of the Valar (also known as Durin's Crown)

    It's not gold.
    It has seven stars.
    It is not related to Mordor.
    It has more than one word.
    Suckle and nurse can mean the same thing.
    It is in the heavens.

    Ooo I hadn't realised there were actually two valid answers to this!

    The answer I had in mind was indeed Remmirath (The Netted Stars) which are equivalent to our Pleiades (The Seven Sisters) where nurse = sister, I'd forgotten that Valacirca was also comprised of seven stars

    If no-one had responded with Remmirath I'd give it to Boraxxe, but I think the riddle stick has to go to Reaboj.

    Ain't that supposed to be Sickle, not Suckle?

    Grin, yeah, the only way my answer works is if we allow that misspelling.

    One thing that seems a bit outa whack: "-the answer is not a single word". Isn't Remmirath a single word? I guess "The Netted Stars" must be the non-single word answer.
    No matter.
    Gratz Reaboj!

    I suppose you could try to Suckle a Sickle...but I wouldn't recommend it.

    Yeah I shouldn't have said that since Remmirath is a valid answer, apologies for any confusion.

    Hmm, hoping Boraxxe is OK as a new riddle is usually posted quite quickly?

    With all deference to Boraxxe, who has been such a stalwart in this subforum for the past 7 years, we have now passed the waiting period before the riddle stick is relinquished by default and passes back to the group. I declare the stick open to whoever next posts a new riddle.

    I do hope Boraxxe is ok.
