Why is Of the Enemies in the Valaquenta only semi-finished? Also why is the Athrabeth semi-finished? Arvegil, you, and me all reached a consensus on the draft, is that not enough to reach the...

DE-EX-10: agreed

DE-EX-11: This is true, it does seem to only repeat the same thought in different terms. I am leaning towards Aiwendil's point of view on this.

DE-SC-06: The Sun reference...

A minor change, but the Quenya version of Thingol given in LQ (Singollo) was replaced in Q&E with Sindicollo. We should make a general change throughout. It is only used three times I believe, so it...

This is amazing! I do not have access to any of the VT or PE writings, so any additions from them will have to come from you guys. Fin, your edit looks good.

DE-EX-07: I agree with Fin

DE-EX-07.1: I agree that leaving it ambiguous is best, so I would also go with b)

DE-EX-09: Agreed.

If there's nothing else, is that the end of Chapter 3?

Fin that was amazing kudos!!!

It appears that the issue of the Years of the Trees to Years of the Sun ratio is far more important than we thought. Hopefully it only becomes material in this...

As for the smaller variety, random mutations occur in any generation, especially since the Dwarves are a very small gene pool. That there would be a portion of them born even in the third or fourth...

I'm sorry.... What? Literally every project has the goal to make money. If they did not, they would not be made in the first place. Do you not understand capitalism?

DE-EX-07, 07.1: For the first one, I think simply removing the second part of the sentence is the safest bet, like Fin suggests. As for the issue with the Dwarves propagating, by the old relation of...

I just felt like if we could finish off the easy chapters first, it would give us more of a confidence and momentum boost to get into the more difficult chapters.

I agree that that'd be a good place to put Aman and Mortal Men, since the Akallabeth is written by a Man and not an Elf. However, if this part is to be inserted into the Quenta Silmarillion, I think...

EPE-EX-12.5: I do not think it is explicit enough to warrant a deletion, but I suppose there is no real harm.

EPE-EX-12.6: Ah, I was not thinking. I agree.

On a side not, are you taking up the...

I agree with all of these, except for d) as I think the correct geography is more important than the south = heat general rule. The entirety of the south was not hot, as the AMbarkanta tells us that...

While I agree that if it is to be placed in the story, it fits well here, were we not planning to include it in Volume III as a standalone essay?

I use NiŽnna and LůriŽn, as I thought those were the latest versions of the names? Similarly to AriŽn.

This actually brings up an issue we have not discussed with Aiwendil, and I meant to comment on, but had forgotten. Fin and I, in our editing, have been replacing the word "magic," since Tolkien...
