If they want a GOT political intrigue story-at least partially, the downfall of Numenor would be one of the best periods and places to do it.

You could have conflict between the king's men and the...

I think Jackson's films did an all around good job, where they perfect? No but I was satisfied with them. Maybe its just because I'm not a die hard when it comes to this sort of thing.

I guess you could do that and tie it into the LOTR movie prologue. Maybe get Cate Blanchett to narrate again.

They have the rights to the Hobbit and LOTR and the appendices. They don't have the right to the Silmarillion or the unfinished tales or the HoME.

They've said Young Aragorn, second age would require either the Silmarillion, or the writers are delving ever deeper into outright fanfic.

I agree. Rhun should be vast.

I suppose it could be a connecting chain of the orocarni which stretch westward or something.

But given the fact that it is so noticeable and the series is about...

I think the evidence is pretty clear Gandalf is a Maia, Maiar and Valar are both Ainur so they are the same "essence" or "group"

Well if the legendarium is true, that means a lot of cool things happened. Also we'd probably be able to find evidence of numenor under the ocean.

I seem to recall some easterlings made a stand at the River Anduin and fought till the last man while the orcs fled. This always spoke volumes to me about their combat quality.

As I understand it, the easterlings were Sauron's best troops-the dwarf king had fallen, and so had the king of Dale,

And the easterlings weren't "rabble" but rather Sauron's best. Think my...

Pro Morgoth version of the Dagor Dagorath

Forgive me, I know this is somewhat obscure.

But I've read somewhere about four versions of the Dagor Dagorath. One of them being a pro Morgoth version, with a chant by orcs.
