Hmm..Aragorn believes that Merry was a victim of the Black Breath (in Bree) and yet seems to have escaped serious harm.

I agree that it seems to be a spiritual or psychological ill. As Merry was...

Was the Steward, Boromir inflicted with the Black Breath? I recall the Appendices mentioning he suffered after a battle with the Witch-King and died before his time, shrunken/in pain? *goes to check*...

Oooh, first Rune, then Bb and now Esty! Form, how many long-time members returning does it take that it does become a party house, in your opinion?

Oh good topic that is open to a bunch of wild guessing and speculation. :D

I'm not sure if this is directly related, but from Inzil's thread there was discussion about the plague Melkor sent and...

I've had to use Discord for work and it is better than apps that are similar (Skype, GoogleMeet) in my opinion. But that's because the creator of it has set strict privacy settings.

I'm just glad this forum is still around, even though it's gone treeish over the last couple years.

Hey good to still see you around Morthoron. I know nothing about William Morris, so I can't add anything to that piece of information. I am familiar with the connection Tolkien makes between the Dead...

Well, it could have simply been an old man, that is I believe the traditional reading is the face value interpretation. Some 2500 years pass from when Isildur cursed them and Baldor finds the door....

Interesting about the door Baldor finds, and it may give some clues as to the Sauron-worship by the Men of Dunharrow:

Thank you for the link (and the link in the thread you linked), Mithadan. I think they will do exactly what you intend, and spark more discussion. Necromancy is certainly linked to a topic about the...

The White Council

A rather basic question that stood out to me last time reading Lord of the Rings, about the formation of the White Council. It might be one of those "sorry, Boro, there's no definitive answer" but I...
