I'm pretty sure I'm missing some vital reference in #2. (Googling "Melon wizard" didn't actually help much. There's a bunch of pictures of melon wizards, sure, but I still can't figure out where it originated. And now I feel old. XD)

Lol, I think they meant to write "Merlin" the famous wizard from King Arthur's time, but autocorrect happened.

Ooooooh. :D That makes much more sense. (Although there are way more versions of a Melon Wizard out there on the internet than I would've expected.)

OMG, I was wondering the same thing!!! lol

I guess I should've asked the person if that's what they meant. I did think "well, this looks like Merlin" but I thought maybe Melon was some obscure reference (like Nielo did), and just went with it. Now I totally see how it's very likely an autocorrect thing :laugh:

Melon reminds me of Lord of the rings. It is the password to open Moria's gate. 
Melon means friend in elfish :D And Gandalf said the password so I thought that would be related to Gandalf. 
I think I'm wrong then xD

Mellon! Speak friend and enter! Gandalf throwing his toys out of the pram because he couldn't get the door open. :laughingsmiley: Whenever I read that I always give him a bit of mental side-eye at his, "Merry, of all people, was on the right track." comment. Sour grapes there, mister!

Nice connection you made there, @Yuiina :D

Oh, so it could be a reference after all! And not even an obscure one at that, haha.

I guess only the person who made it can tell us for sure... we'll find out tomorrow! :laugh:

Mellon is the word for friend in elvish, is.a reference for the lord of the ring, the fellowship of the ring, when they are trying to get to Moria, It's the password 

*My inner superextrahypernerd is crying in the background for the missed reference* r

c3bd760490ef1fefce45dd9ab75d5f01.jpg

Obviously, I voted for that entry, since I read the books at least one in a year.

"The Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak, friend, and enter. I, Narvi, made them. Celebrimbor of Hollin drew these signs."
 

The Moon now shone upon the grey face of the rock; but they could see nothing else for a while. Then slowly on the surface, where the wizard's hands had passed, faint lines appeared, like slender veins of silver running in the stone. At first they were no more than pale gossamer-threads, so fine that they only twinkled fitfully where the Moon caught them, but steadily they grew broader and clearer, until their design could be guessed.

At the top, as high as Gandalf could reach, was an arch of interlacing letters in an Elvish character. Below, though the threads were in places blurred or broken, the outline could be seen of an anvil and a hammer surmounted by a crown with seven stars. Beneath these again were two trees, each bearing crescent moons. More clearly than all else there shone forth in the middle of the door a single star with many rays.

'There are the emblems of Durin!' cried Gimli.

'And there is the Tree of the High Elves!' said Legolas.

'And the Star of the House of F.anor,' said Gandalf. 'They are wrought of ithildin that mirrors only starlight and moonlight, and sleeps until it is touched by one who speaks words now long forgotten in Middle-earth. It is long since I heard them, and I thought deeply before I could recall them to my mind.'

'What does the writing say?' asked Frodo, who was trying to decipher the inscription on the arch. 'I thought I knew the elf-letters but I cannot read these.'

'The words are in the elven-tongue of the West of Middle-earth in the Elder Days,' answered Gandalf. 'But they do not say anything of importance to us. They say only: The Doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak, friend, and enter. And underneath small and faint is written: I, Narvi, made them. Celebrimbor of Hollin drew these signs.'

'What does it mean by speak, friend, and enter?' asked Merry.

'That is plain enough,' said Gimli. 'If you are a friend, speak the password, and the doors will open, and you can enter.'

************

With a suddenness that startled them all the wizard sprang to his feet. He was laughing! 'I have it! ' he cried. 'Of course, of course! Absurdly simple, like most riddles when you see the answer.'

Picking up his staff he stood before the rock and said in a clear voice: Mellon!

The star shone out briefly and faded again. Then silently a great doorway was outlined, though not a crack or joint had been visible before. Slowly it divided in the middle and swung outwards inch by inch, until both doors lay back against the wall. Through the opening a shadowy stair could be seen climbing steeply up; but beyond the lower steps the darkness was deeper than the night. The Company stared in wonder.

'I was wrong after all,' said Gandalf, 'and Gimli too. Merry, of all people, was on the right track. The opening word was inscribed on the archway all the time! The translation should have been: Say "Friend" and enter. I had only to speak the Elvish word for friend and the doors opened. Quite simple. Too simple for a learned lore-master in these suspicious days. Those were happier times. Now let us go!'

In the movie, they put that the one to ask Gandalf about the riddle was Frodo, but in the book was Merry

Okay, but now I really wanna know if it autocorrected from Merlin or Mellon. XD
Although if it's a LOTR reference, it makes sense that I missed it. My apologies to @hriven's inner superextrahypernerd, but I could never really get into LOTR (neither books nor movies). :guiltysmiley: (Even though I would happily call myself a superextrahypernerd as well. Just... not including LOTR. XD)

At least my autocorrect knows Merlin, so i'm voting for Mellon

I've already messaged the person who made it, I'm waiting for their reply... I said we'd know tomorrow, but I forgot that it's still Friday... I was thinking it was Saturday already (there's a general strike going on in my country so everything feels different).

Does anyone want to place any bets while we wait? I'm putting down 5 NP for Merlin lol.gif just kidding!

Me too! The suspense is killing me. What if it's some other wizard entirely? Maybe it's Dumbledore, randomly muttering 'melon'. :upsidedown:

I always have trouble finding the entry threads. :blush: It's because they're in the other customisation sub-forum. I find myself going round and round in circles looking for them. >_<

Hopefully, now that I've figured it out, I'll remember in future, but we shall see!
