Fingolfin!

Too many F names :rolleyes:

By mortal I meant anything that is born to Middle Earth (Men, Dwarves, Elves) and not Ainu (Vala and Maiar).

If you can kill it, it ain't immortal. :D

The purpose of this thread is to proclaim that Dwarves are the greatest of all races. We are slayers of Dragons and builders of great stone halls. We are brewers of the finest ales in all the land...

Bilbo shouldn't paint a nice picture of the Dwarves. The journey of the Hobbit is Bilbo's transformation from "nice, quiet hobbit" to adventurer. He shouldn't greatly appreciate those that took him...

Thinking about it, I'll put a vote in for dragons as the Dwarves external opposite.

The head is not so large as to cause you to fly off balance and leave yourself open (think a Great Axe). However it is rather hefty and double-edged which...

A grapeshot catapult.

Take a normal bowl shaped catapult fill it with small rubble and sharp bits and let loss. Those nice membranous fell beast wings won't appreciate it.
