This recent event has led me to pick up Tolkien's works again, which I haven't done in awhile (I know, for shame! :o)

I came across this today in my read through of The Silmarillion and it seems...

Boots Removes Hat in Sorrow

Not much to add other than condolences for the family and gratitude for the work.

I don't know that it matters, the game is almost certain to be horrible.

It is my understanding that while there are individuals on the design team who have MMO development experience, most of the...

Is there any hope that since GoT is commonly held to have ended on a sour note, that perhaps that will pour some cold water on Amazon wanting to pursue this enterprise too avidly?

Probably not. :(

Boots Time to indulge in some serious pedantry

The Orocarni (if that is what those are supposed to be) should be a much larger mountain range.

Given the names on the map, I agree with Huinesoron that the Second Age looks more likely.

True, but "Scorpion" is hardly a symbol in keeping with a Numenorean origin. I would submit that it suggests a Haradric provenance.

What about the theories that King Scorpion II and Narmer were one and the same person?

I think that would tend to undermine your theory a bit.

I guess I should clarify that I meant that it seemed un-Tolkien to me that Turgon could have defeated Morgoth by force of arms.

Boots Just some thoughts

1) I would like to express my gratitude that Tolkien abandoned the term "Gnomes" for the Noldor. I realize this is a post facto preference because if he hadn't I would have never know, but every...

Hooray!

Sadly, we seem to have become a bit more Entish around here.

Or maybe it is just me.

Boots Birthday Wishes

I drift back to the Downs today for the first time in a few months and notice that today is Lush's birthday.

A long departed but still missed member here, I hope she is doing well wherever she is.

Siding with the Melkorian forces to any extent from a moral standpoint is "evil" by definition in Middle-earth. It is heavily implied that dwarves did serve the Melkorian side in some cases.

For some reason I am not feeling reassured by any of this (https://www.marketwatch.com/story/amazons-lord-of-the-rings-series-reportedly-will-cost-500-million-2018-03-20).

I can't figure out why...
