Being a recent arrival at the Barrow Downs, but a long-time Tolkien messageboard veteran, I have to say the whole 'chat vs discussion' debate is not new by any means. I applaud Barrow's effort to...

The Durins were not re-incarnated, but just later generations of the Durin line. Example is Rush Limbaugh III is not his father Rush Limbaugh II, or grandfather Rush Limbaugh.

Wow.. alot here! I don't think I buy into the "Denethor a myrter" theory, for if he wished to show his valiance, theree was plenty of battle to be had (note Theoden).

With all the notes and such that are put into the UT and HoME books, I would still go with Celebrimbor being of Feanorean descent since that is what is in LoTR, which is what J.R.R. published. So...

Yes the men of Numenor were perfectly able to do it themselves, but they were friends of the Noldor, and so I'm sure there were skills shared, and they had Tharbad very near the elven cities in...

It is quite true that there was a strain of Elven blood in the line of Imrahil and Findulis for they descended from Galador twenty-one generations before. Galador was half-Elven; his father being...

I alwais assumed the Numenoreans forged them, though in Middle Earth. There was many Numenoreans in Eriador. Maybe they used the smithies of the Noldor?

I doubt heavily that any of the Rangers will ride south, for sadly the movie only mentions Gondor, not Arnor. The sons of Elrond may ride south, but I am doubting it right now.

Just think if J.R.R. Tolkien diwrote fulltime the world of Middle Earth instead of having a day job as a professor at Oxford. I would have been quite interested in more lore about the Second Age!
