Wow, I wasn't expecting replies so quickly, and thanks for responding.

I guess it would be true that Gandalf (I remember him saying it in the movie, I'm not sure if it's in the book) meant only...

The Great Darkness

My question I suppose is one of practicality for Melkor and Sauron. Suppose Sauron won the War of the Ring, recovered the One and brought the land into a second darkness. Assuming he had the power to...

Question Malbeth the Seer and his prophecy

In RotK, Aragorn cites an old prophecy made by Malbeth the Seer and proves that he is its fulfillment as king of the Dúnedain. This is the quote from the Appendices (from A I'm pretty sure) in which...

Question Gandalf before the War of the Ring

Just as the title says, I was wondering what Gandalf did exactly between 1000 T.A. when he arrived in the Grey Havens and the War of the Ring. In the Silmarillion it says

Thanks for your response, Dininzilielen. I just read something on that as well. I believe it was in the Silmarillion, I can't quite remember though. Arnor gave one of its three palantiri to the...

Thank you Gwairhir, for your response. I suppose this is just another reason why I need to go buy and read UT and the LT, since it seems there is a lot of information I'm missing with just LotR and...

Sauron and the palantir

Around T.A. 1980, the Nazgul took Minas Ithil, which housed a palantir, which was subsequently taken by Sauron. We know that Sauron used the seeing-stone until his demise, and communicated directly...

Silmaril Standard of Arnor

I know Rohan, Dol Amroth, and Gondor had their own flags and symbols for their realms, but does anyone know what the symbol for Arnor would be? After some research I'm wondering could it be a star....

Question Aragorn, the Rangers and life spans

I know Aragorn's life was longer than most Men, and I've heard of two reasons why:

1) He is the 38th (or something of the like) generation of Elros, brother of Elrond,who chose a mortal life....
