OK, my fault. I knew I'd burn my wings when talking of things I'm not sure of. I confess, I haven't read the Silmarillion. Nevertheless I have read elsewhere of the waking of the elves, and there...

I agree on the Ring changing size for it to fit Hobbit fingers, but I disagree on the weight. The Ring getting heavier as Frodo approaches Orodruin is purely the Ring's affect on Frodo and it's not...

The names of the first-born Elves are given in the Silmarillion, and Tom isn't in them. I won't address the issue of Tom's beard. smilies/wink.gif

Oh, ok! Agree on that. That can be explained with the loss of motivation, as I stated previously.

Wormtongue, Sméagol was a Hobbit. A primitive form of them, at least. Their descendants were the...

Weren't there very few dragons left at the end of the Third Age in the first place? Wasn't Smaug one of the last?

What makes you think that Gollum lost much of his memory? As for the aging, 500 years in the company of the Ring makes you very lustful of it. Gollum was merely alive after Bilbo took the Ring from...

Of course there is an analogy between Hobbit & Human ages. Say Men reach maturity at 18; if Hobbits reach maturity (for the sake of the comparison we'll admit both physical & mental) at age 33, then...

That's a good idea, though it would definitely have to be in RotK. We meet Faramir in TTT, so maybe the flashbacks (if any?) will be then. In Henneth Annûn maybe? Flashbacks would introduce Denethor...

Thanks lathspell, I was too bored to fetch my books! Wormtongue, you're just 1 or 2 chapters away.

Bilbo's farewell party takes place 50-33=17 years earlier than the Council of Elrond (Frodo's 50 in the rest of LotR and 33 in the party). That means it's in 1418-17=1401 SR. Merry, Pippin & Sam were...

The host of the Dead was made up of people cursed to be strained on Earth until someone pardons their sins. That someone was Aragorn. After the takeover of Pelargir, Aragorn set the host free and the...

There was no indication against the theory that it was Caradhras itself that refused to let the Fellowship pass. Saruman had probably nothing to do with it, and Sauron even less.

I see a more political meaning in some sense (no allegory though!): Memory of the past must not be forgotten, even when times are changing.

What do you mean lathspell? If Frodo was dead, there's no reason to rescue him in the first place. It would be too late if he was dead. If Sam succeeded alone, Gwaihir & Gandalf would rescue Sam only...

O for Orthanc, the very strong tall black tower in the centre of Isengard, built by the exiled Númenóreans, later "inherited" by Saruman. I know, it was too easy.

Welcome jimithing_36

I guess bounders is the same with boundaries, frontiers, borders, edges of the Shire. Bounders has the same root with boundaries, and in this context it's logical to think it...

We can suppose that the Three were invisible depending on the will of the bearer: Gandalf didn't reveal Narya (?) until the end and I think Frodo saw Nenya (?) not until Galadriel decided to show it...

Adamant should be another name for diamond. I don't know if adamant takes another meaning in some fantasy works. I highly doubt it.

Sorry to be perfectionist, but what we call the (recent) Ice Age took place about 65 million years after the extinction of the Dinosaurs. It ended some 10-12,000 years ago.

Weren't the Huorns plain Ents who spent too much time idle among trees, and ended becomeing like trees (apart from appearance)?
