View Full Version : OT: can you solve this "The Lord of the Rings"-puzzle for me, please?

I know this hasn't got anything to do with Tomb Raider and I'll make sure that this won't become a habit, but I'm puzzled with something and I need all the help I can get.

I could win a special prize if I can solve the next puzzle. Underneath you'll see twelve characters which (when put in the right order) make a word, an actor's or character's name, the name of a book or at least a word that's got something to do with the amazing movie: The Lord of the Rings.

The characters are: T L O I V N N U U K J A.

I've tried very hard, but since I only got in touch with The Lord of the Rings AFTER the first of three movies got out, I obviously don't know too much about this -already- classic trilogy.

Could you take a look at the twelve characters and try to make a decent "The Lord of the Rings"-word or name with it? I'd be more than greatful.

This is also a test or even a challenge for the die-hard Lord of the Rings-fans to see how much they know about it. It's not a joke or a tease ... in case it takes a while before you get the solution. And please: don't bother asking for the correct answer, because the reason why I contact you is simply BECAUSE I don't know the correct answer.

C ya later, alligator!

And thanks a lo'!

Err ... thanks for -at least- trying

I don't drink alcohol; I've tried it many times, but it tastes like poison http://www.gamers-forums.com/smilies/contrib/edoom/throwup.gif; in a way it is too. http://www.gamers-forums.com/smilies/otn/ez/ezpi_wink1.gif

You really need to read the trilogy to know about Barliman Butterbur
and the story behind the Fourteen Twenty Ale.

I once had the answer to everything written on a piece of paper.

Left that piece of paper in my favourite jeans.

Washed 'em...gone forever.


Can't go back....

Pity http://www.uniquehardware.co.uk/server-smilies/cwm/3dlil/cry.gif; let's just hope someone else has the answer http://216.40.249.192/mysmilies/contrib/edoom/sad2.gif... or maybe even that piece of paper! http://216.40.241.68/contrib/anym/hal.gif

OR you can wait to find out when they tell you at the END of The Return Of The King movie
due out in December 2003.

What's our incentive to help you,
who obviously knows very little (not that you couldn't learn) about LOTR,
win a LOTR contest?

The answer is easy if you've read the books.

Never mind ... apparantly the word is in Dutch, so only Dutch "The Lord of the Rings"-fanatics could help me out here. When I've found it, I'll tell you all about it.

I tried really hard to solve this but I can't find anything about it that could be a name. The only thing I can think of is the word "avontuurlijk", but then one of the n's should be an r so that wil not be right. I would like to solve this, I even looked in the book but reading it thoroughly would take to much time, I'm sorry :(
