    Since there are three countries, I though that maybe we should divide the words into groups, again (like in Amigos). I'm getting something like that:

    Countries:
    -Austria
    -Mongolia
    -Qatar
    -Macquarie? (Not a country, but an Australian district...)

    Animals starting with S () :
    -Snail
    -Salamander
    -Sabretooth Tiger

    Science-related (for lack of other definition... physics or astronomy, maybe):
    -Orion
    -Zenith
    -Quartz

    Real People:
    -James Watt
    -Sonny

    Fictional Characters:
    -Sparrowhawk
    -Smaug
    -John Connor

    Miscellaneous Objects:
    -Umbrella
    -Banjo
    -Steps (maybe not)

    No category:
    -Engaged


    Other than that, there are a lot of answers starting with S.

    Nice division. Maybe the answer for the missing puzzle will fit with the objects and then the two extras are "engaged steps"

    Macquarie can be a person, that'll fit better. (Although in the puzzle it was a street, but I don't think it matters)

    Engaged steps can't be the answer, can it?

    Edit: Pianoman, but what do we do with the other categories? For the countries, we can take capitals - Vienna, Doha, Ulan Nator. Duv? Vud? or is this part of a word?

    Animals starting with S () :
    -Snail - Gasteropod
    -Salamander - Amphibian
    -Sabretooth Tiger - Mammal

    GAM

    With an E from Engaged that could be GAME. Gam is a word (collective noun for whales), or it could be a syllable of a longer word.
