I think the fact that they broke their oath and Isildur condemned them for doing so was enough, and Isildur didn't have any special powers. It's a common theme in fantasy. One breaks an oath - one...

You should always read the books first, as they clear a lot of questions. If you ask something in the Downs, you're going to get MANY spoilers. I assume that you haven't read even LotR yet, or at...

He may have been a nazgūl, though I too believe he was a Black Numenorean. But we cannot be sure.

The Host of the Last Alliance was greater. It's even said in the books, as no host as great has ever been seen after it, and only once before it, in the War of Wrath. For me, that settles it.

Hitler was sort of dark lord, wasn't he? :P I believe many men could be said to have been a dark lord, but all of them were of a lesser scale.

The Dwarves
As the halls of Moria show, Dwarves like building and inventing.

So, they should be considered facts? I don't think so - they aren't made by Tolkien, therefore they can't be facts. Fanfics aren't usually(=never) considered true(well, with the exception of the Fall...

Does a child of Eru have flaming hair, wings of shadow and his body in flames? Don't think so.

And about the number of the Balrogs - there were certainly more than seven in the Silmarillion. The...

Hmm, I've always thought that the elves will live even after the end, when Arda is made again. And the elves cannot die even if they want to, so I guess they are pretty much immortal. They don't die.

There's nothing wrong with a LotR parody, and I think anyone who think it's an unforgivable insult against Tolkien is an idiot.

But Bored of the Rings is bad, can't call that humor really, and...

"Nine for mortal men doomed to die" means that Sauron gave them to men, not that the elves crafted them for men.

I believe Gollum's life would have ended very soon after the destruction of the Ring anyways. Remember, Bilbo was already nearly sleeping away, and he was "only" 130 years old - compare it to Gollum,...

Sauron was unbeatable, at least nobody in Middle-Earth could beat him. Gandalf's plan failed, as Frodo couldn't destroy the Ring. Wouldn't Gollum have taken one step, Sauron would have won. The Good...

The Witch-King was finally dead, there was no way he could come back. I believe Tolkien didn't simply think mu too much about it when he wrote that "in that age of the world". The other Nazgūl were...

I don't think that a balrog could have ordered a dragon. Sauron, who was the mightiest of Melkor's servants, never tried it, which I think means he couldn't, or that it would have been very hard for...
