4. Túrin
5. Merry and Éowyn
6. Gandalf
7. Gollum
8. Helm Hammerhand (punched Freca so hard that he died; I don't know if the Professor thought this amusing, but I've always considered it to be one of the most hilarious instances of over-the-top heroic violence in the whole legendarium)

Surely killing Túrin Turambar is epic enough in itself, even if a talking sword did it? *

(However, please delete if you don't agree).


(punched Freca so hard that he died; I don't know if the Professor thought this amusing, but I've always considered it to be one of the most hilarious instances of over-the-top heroic violence in the whole legendarium)

It's typical Old Norse humour - I think JRRT would have found it amusing. So is the killing of Golfimbul, I suppose.


* "There he drew forth his sword, that now alone remained to him of all his possessions, and he said, 'Hail Gurthang! No lord or loyalty dost thou know, save the hand that weildeth thee. From no blood wilt thou shrink. Wilt thou therefore take Túrin Turambar, wilt thou slay me swiftly?'

"And from the blade rang a cold voice in answer: 'Yea, I will drink thy blood gladly, that so I may forget the blood of Beleg my master, and of Brandir slain unjustly. I will slay thee swiftly.'

"Then Túrin set the hilts upon the ground, and cast himself upon the point of Gurthang, and the black blade took his life.

...

"Then they lifted up Túrin, and found that Gurthang had broken asunder."

Yes indeed, I thought of all the dismemberment in Njal's Saga and the like when I mentioned it. Ooh, and now that you've implied it (sorry if I'm hogging the thread a bit):

I would also like to register my support for Gurthang as having performed an 'epic kill'.

Yes, Aglarond has it all).

Places to go on holiday in Middle-earth
1. Gondolin (very tight security measures, be sure to go during the First Age,
flight by Giant Eagle recommended), possibility of major conflicts-please
check ahead.
2. Umbar (a lovely spot by the sea, beautiful seaside, luxurious accomodation, exotic markets, and one of the Wonders of the World - the architectonic monument to Ar-Pharazon's victory over Mordor)
3. Rivendell (Elrond's house is perfect, whether you like food, or sleep, or work, or story-telling, or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all.)
4.

5. Lothlórien (warning: visitors may not want to ever come back from their holiday. Also, please pay attention to the following announcement from the customs office regarding imported goods*: "The only evil found in Lothlórien is the one you bring with you!")
*or actually, evils...

If signed up for southern tour leg sail past Far Harad for nighttime sky watching (where the stars are different).

11. The Great Middle-Earth Paragliding Race-1st Age version:
(Getting clearance from the valar to enter the race is a must)
Start at Taniquetil. Glide across to the Mountains of Mithrim. Beware of dragons and Giant Eagles as you then coast from Beleriand to Mount Gundabad. Perhaps the most dangerous leg is Gundabad to Caradhras (esp. as the race is held in winter). Caradhras to the Lonely Mountain and then to, you guessed it, Mount Doom. (Warning! There are said to be strange wrinkled reptile-like giant birds who like to interfere with participants). Ride shore winds across to Andrast before the final challenging leg back to Amon Uilos.
