You guys seem to have already covered it quite extensively [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Just one thing: Is it possible that the Balrog had nothing to do with the dwarve's slaughter? After all, i would think that whoever was recording their final moments would have said something about the monsterous fire-shadow of death standing outside the door. Its possible they didnt know what it was, but that doesnt seem likely considering even Gimli, a young dwarf, had some knowledge of it. I think the balrog probably just hit the sleeper during the whole thing. After all, the dwarves certainly wouldnt be a threat to it, and the moria orcs didnt have the power to summon it forth as Sauron probably did.
There long the golden leaves have grown, upon the branching years, while here beyond the sundering seas, now fall the Elven-tears...
but if of ships I now would sing, what ship would come to me, what ship would bear me ever back, across so wide a sea?
