Fishy, you say? I wonder, can you make leather from fish skin? Does fish leather make good boots?


Anyway, since it doesn't look like there's going to be much of a town meeting at this hour, I'm...

Werewolves, hm? I bet they come from that naked hill over yonder, the one with no trees on the top, just bare rocks rising over the forest. There's always a shadow over the place, gives me the...

Good point. I suppose you could say they're portrayed as savages, but at least they're OUR savages. ;) Anyway, they're portrayed with a lot of sympathy, especially taking in account material like The...

Elijah Wood finally looks like an adult, he might actually make a decent Frodo if the movies were made today.

I tried to be sensible, but even my wife says I should play, and who am I to argue with her? Also I'd bite myself in the butt, as we say in German, for missing this.

Is it weird that the index and the appendix on elements in Quenya and Sindarin names may well be the parts I've read most often? The map, too.

I did! For a while at least, and whether you were the seer or not, I was pretty sure you were innocent, like Legate earlier; at the time of my death you were one of a handful of villagers I felt I...

Yep, LotR was a huge step forward in Tolkien's development as a writer, and I think he knew it - hence the reworking of the Great Tales in a more detailed, vivid, LotR-ish style that brought us the...

As far as I know it was Mac who came up with it, you'll have to ask him. I didn't get it either.

Why would Ordomir88 plead with Brinn not do dream him? He'd have nothing to fear. Besides, with just him and Rune left undreamed, the result would be the same either way. Nah, he just enjoys messing...
