Thinking about the change in Gandalf leads me to another though too.
Does Gandalf the White still have the limits imposed on the Istari? We know he is more powerful but how much? One thing that...

Ever since coming here, I cant visit my favorite tech site without expecting Goldberry to do a hardware review of the new Pentiums. Any other computer nerds might want to check out Toms Hardware.

Male, 25, and new to Tolkien.

I just started reading this summer because I knew the movies were coming out, and I know how much better books usually are than movies. Also, many of my favorite...

Sting More Istari limits?

I am almost done with UT and I think I have discovered another limit placed on the Istari while in ME. I think it may also shed some light on the nature of their other limitations too.

In "The...

Ok, actually now to shoot myself in the foot. Later in the same passage, the Mines of Moria there is evidence for the Balrog being much larger. Again, its all circumstantial and supposition....

I made an arguement about Balrog size in one of the 'wings' threads. Going by LOTR references in Moria we can get a clue.

While they are fleeing the orcs a "great fissure had opened" which was...

For Tolkien fans (any here?) I would suggest Elizabeth Moon's "The Deed of Paksennarion" as well as the pre-quel books, Oath of Gold and Liars Oath. Very Tolkienesque feel, yet not a rip off. Great...

Just a hint as to the power of a Balrog, and a clue as to the relative number.

In the Sil, concerning the making of the Sun and the Moon it states that the Sun (Aren) will be drawn by Arien, who...

I dont know, I just saw the movie again last night.<P>I didnt see Aragorn as being an opportunist. He was the second one to speak up after Frodo says he will take the ring (Gandalf being first). ...

Men must be able to use magic, or at least sorcery. When Sauron gave the nine to men, it is stated they became kings and sorcerers. I dont think the magic they would have wielded came only from the...

I like Tolkiens theme of everything working out in the end. Eru states that even when others do evil, it is really doing his will.

I disagree with the idea of a supreme will guiding us, but think...

Gayhitthwen, are you sure it was an X-ray? More likely it was an MRI, as soft tissue like hearts doesnt show up on X-ray.

MRI's use incredibly powerful magnets, so no metals are allowed,...

To make matters worse, men in ME could be extremely long-lived themselves, were they of numenorian blood. Aragorn for example.
