I've been trying to find a chunk of time to continue reviewing this chapter. I'll really make an effort to do so in the next two or three days.

Continuing to work through this slowly, as we now come to what I think may be the most difficult (or at least most contentious) bit.



I’m unsure about “Falman” and “Vailimo”. I see that...

I continue to make my way through this slowly. Some more comments for now:

CE-EX-25: I suppose LQ does add some details here that may be worth including, but I think that since we have included...

Agreed.



You have a good point here, and it's probably worth some heavier editing to keep that thread. However, in your first draft I find a redundancy between LQ and AAm, as we twice tell...

I got off to a good start but then got bogged down with some other things. I think I'll post the comments I have so far, which mainly address the easier early parts.

Sorry again I've been taking so long with this. I was going to try to write an all-encompassing post, but perhaps it's better if I just post what I have for now.

As an exercise, I tried...

Just wanted to let you know that I am now looking at this chapter. My plan is to generate a version of my own first, before looking at Findegil's and ArcusCalion's, just to see how different it ends...

Sorry for the absence in recent weeks. I should have some time to get back into things in the next few weeks, and I think I'll start by reviewing the work on "The Coming of the Elves" unless you...

This looks good to me. I also think ArcusCalion is probably right that we must remove this reference to the scantiness of the treasure of Nargothrond.

One small correction. In RD-EX-40:

Thanks to Huinerson for that summary; it was fascinating. As noted, it is third-hand information, so it may not be completely accurate, but (and this is entirely subjective) judging by Boorman's...

And even in that case, the Valar themselves didn't act; they merely petitioned Iluvatar to intervene, and Iluvatar took action.

It seems that the Valar had been somewhat traumatized by the...

You're right; I didn't review our text sufficiently. I think the two phases of smithying could be retained (i.e. I don't think it's necessarily contradicted by more authoritative sources), but I...

This looks good to me. On small note is that looking again at RD-EX-36.5, I don't think the editorial addition is actually needed. It's clear from the previous paragraph that they are working on...

Oh, I see - we somehow never name the necklace when it first appears. I would have no real objection to adding something like what you suggest. Though if it is not named when first made in the LT...

This looks good to me - I think we can consider it done. Would that all the chapters were this easy! But then we'd have a lot less fun.

Good to see you, Lindil!

All right, I think that after being away for a bit, it might be best for me to start back in with something easy, so I'll try to look at "Thingol and Melian" this weekend.

Sorry for my absence recently. Can someone remind me if we had decided on what chapter to review next? I should be able to take a look at Findegil's and ArcusCalion's drafts again soon.
