Lore of the Ring, Round 79: The Periodic Table of the Rings

by Laiquendi


Behold, fine peoples of the Universe, the astounding mystery that awaits below. For some decidedly handsome and quizzical scientist-type person has uncovered the true meaning of life, the universe and everything and put it forward for your academic inquiry. Push your brain downhill in a cart and walk away from it with a zombie smile on your brainless face, for now you face the ultimate test of Loredom, the one quiz of utter devastation, the only thing that Frodosmiss might ever be able to answer...


The Periodic Table of the Rings!

Mwahahahahahahahah twisted

Conspicuously hidden in the table below are the names of 118 Lord of the Rings people or places neatly arranged and sorted into categories and numbered. All the names in the table (except two) can be found in the Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit books. However, the names have become slightly shortened due to space constraints and it is up to you, blind fool, to unravel the mystery within. Who knew that the entire chemical basis of the universe was made up of Lord of the Rings characters?

All the "elements" are sorted by race, with further patterns hidden within the table for you to deduce. The first letter of each element is always the first letter of the name, the second letter may be found elsewhere in the name. Any "element" with two capital letters represents two words.

For example:

De could be Déorwine, or Dernhelm, or Dúnhere, or Derndingle, or Dwimordene depending on where it is located.
