If so he seems to have been able to modulate or defer this compulsion; e.g., the land around the Sea of Nurnen, that was fertile enough to feed his armies, and fair enough for Aragorn to gift to the...

I'm not sure I'll post anything coherent in one, but I will lurk the heck out of any Zigūr-going-on-about-Sauron threads.

Tolkien's works would certainly be refined and deepened by a sympathetic, butt-kicking (And oddly alluring!) girl-orc-character or three. Or yrcharacters as we'd be down-right obligated to call...
