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.

Although, I had forgotten about the references to the possibility of...

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.

Boots It has to be great! It is the most expensive!

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...

That is an interesting idea.

However, Thrain was King of Durin's Folk. It seems oddly specific that he could only give permission to access Gundabad if he was ruling from a specific place.

Boots From the desk of the Lord High Scorekeeper

So on review I noticed that not only was I missing 78 I was also missing 72. These have now been corrected and (I think) categorized correctly.
