I would say this chapter reveals more than it seems at first glance.
The first thing would be the detailed description of the Ringwraiths' hunt for the Ring. In most stories, including the Lord of...

I don't think that Tharbad was populated by Numenoreans anymore by the time of Fell Winter. They probably all died centuries ago, and were replaced by Dunlendings. How did that happen? Their...

I would agree with the Dwarves being the physically strongest.

True, true. There is a very good story on that subject by George R.R. Martin, it's called "With Morning Comes Mistfall". I've just read it recently, and it basically supports everything you said...

Well are there supposed to be some special virtues? Maybe they were merely an example of fine craftsmanship (ok, crafts-elf-ship :D ) of Lorien.

What seems more interesting to me is why didn't...

Yes, I said Aragorn showed no fear. I didn't say he didn't have any fear. I am sure he did fear, because apparently everyone who saw the Balrog (and I mean Dain too) were very much afraid.

But the...

Well, if Aragorn was scared, he certainly didn't show it. Charging at the Balrog like that... truly heroic.

Actually, I was talking about the ordinary Men of Rohan and Gondor, who were afraid of the ghosts on Paths of the Dead. Not Aragorn and Boromir. Considering them, everything you said is true. They...

That is possible. However, you're not mentioning the fact Legolas was also pretty scared when Balrog appeared, was he not?

I'm pretty sure the dwarves did use missile weapons. How else would they defend the Bridge of Khazad-dum, which seems to be built exactly to be defended with arrows.
Of course, there would be...

I don't think any dwarf was really a match for the Balrog. I mean, Balrog single-handedly killed two of the dwarven kings and banished the Longbeards out of their ancestral home. The dwarves fought...

Yes, but later he was surprised to see no people or animals in Eastemnet; though he said they usually live far south. Here they used to have herds and paddocks, and shepards tended for them.

well, they could have made a TV series out of LOTR (like HBO's Rome), but that just wouldn't be it. I guess we'll have to accept the limitations of modern cinematography :(
