I seem to remember a line in the Silmarillion that always made me think each time I read it. Though I cannot remember it exactly, I remember clearly that when the Valar attempted to destroy the...

By the Light! I was expecting some serious disagreement to this! Oh well, as I said, "That's the human-mind for you!"

Anywho, I have to say that some excellent bits of information have slipped...

Dark-Eye Servant or Master?

In several threads, I have noticed, when people list the "main-players" in Arda, they will always place Melkor(Morgoth) at the top with Sauron usually below him. It may just be my thoughts of Melkor...

Indeed. And this topic has come up in another thread.
"A 10th Nazgul?" was the name I believe. An interesting thread that I had my part in.

Well, there's where I have to disagree with you. Remember, the Balrogs would cloak themselves in shadow and flame, which, to anyone else, would be blinding. But to a demon of fire, it would be no...

And yet despite this, most of the artwork that I have seen (including those of Glorfindel's battle) have shown the Balrogs with niether helm nor plate, only weapons and muscle.

A tad off-topic, but I'll answer you anyway. I believe that Feanor was born in the year 1173 of the Years of the Trees and the Silmarils in the year 1450.

As for the topic itself, I would expect...

You sure know your Japanese folklore don't you. I can't even read most of their names, let alone the legends themselves(and believe me, I've tried:D).
