Aragorn to me built up to his reclamation of the throne.



One of the reasons his last ancestor (Arvedui) to make a claim to the throne was denied it was because he had not proved himself...

Check the chapter The Land of Shadow where Sam and Frodo escape Frodo's captivity. For instance at the bottom of a valley was "the bed of a now dry and withered stream" and "Mordor was a dying land,...

It's supposed to be that way in the American republic as beauracrats are unconstitutional. Yet most of what you'd find in the Constitution is not followed much anyways. The legislature does not even...

No just a means to do things more effectively. Like a bulldozer rather than tons of men wielding shovels. I think the Rings did effect the bearers internally because for Elves they were meant to stay...

I think it was perhaps a mitigating of the fading effecting Elves that Felagund said was already apparent in the First Age that had such an effect on mortals. The Rings were meant to stay time,...

I think that perhaps the Nine and the One did have effect on the Númenórean population overall for many hundreds of years. In 1697 Sauron got the Rings of Power for the most part, but by the late...

I understand the machine to be those magical artifacts that allow one to do things quicker than normal, that is the enhancement of one's abilities, and also results in less of the exercise and growth...

I don't think it matters that the purpose of Sauron was to remove the disguise and that of Finrod to maintain it. Had Sauron tried to remove the disguises physically and force them off, surely that...

Well, I don't know about this because it is shown that "Felagund strove with Sauron in songs of power" (Of Beren and Lúthien)

I don't think Galadriel overcame any man like qualities, but she did humble herself rather in the mode contrary to her earlier drive, to rule over realms of her own. This is what drove many of the...

I don't think Mandos was necessarily deciding their fates here, rather than stating two facts in his interaction with Ulmo. Half-elves are mortals.

If one believes in the rumor in Dol Amroth, than...

Éowyn is actually part Dúnadan from her grandmother Morwen which is why she and her family are a bit different from the other Rohirrim. Her grandmother was related to Dol Amroth's Prince and she...

Tolkien mentioned in a letter that even if he was not wearing the Ring, Sauron was in rapport with its power. He would not be diminished.

I think the Elven Rings were made to arrest time, to bring Aman to Middle-earth as was Sauron's pitch to the Elves. In the First Age the Elves generally left Aman for empire in Middle-earth, to...

I've no idea what the power source is for the Three. Perhaps in their design to do specific things, they draw on the power or essence of the wielder to work. The One itself draws on the power that is...

I doubt his line ever was immortal. The Dúnedain did not appreciate their Doom and feared death. It was more noticeable in the King's house on Númenor, but it touched even the band of the Faithful....
