Re: What race would you be?

Definitely Elf. Although the idea of eternity is a bit of a bugger... But thinking about it I think I could easily cope with it. And let's face it, who wouldn't love to be able to speak that beautiful tongue of theirs.

Re: What race would you be?

Immortality. Sure the concept is scary at first, but you get used to it! I mean death is a gift??? Well I guess in a way it is, but if you look very carefully it only said death. It did not say that your Fea (or soul for those not as proficiant in Elvish) does not live forever. Just your body dies, as far as I can tell the whateverthepluralof'Fea' is of both men and elves lives on. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong or not making any sense.

Re: What race would you be?

I would say that being an Elf would be the best. Being an Ent would interest me, but it does not seem like they do much. You would have to live a thousand years to feel how they feel about the earth in the remotest sense, and I cant imagine that. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Re: What race would you be?

I'd want to be a dwarf. Why? I'd have dwarves for friends. I've always wanted to hang out with those guys... stay up all night drinking, telling stories around a campfire. Of course, elves and men could do that too, but dwarves are the best craftsmen, the strongest endurance and the highest tolerance for pain. Not to mention the beards. Those are just too cool. Dwarves all the way, man.

Re: What race would you be?

I am inspired by the race of man on middle earth. They did a great deal of the actual fighting. And they are a symbol of strength, superiority and determination. I like all of the other races, especially elves. But the elves were known as mysterious and secret. The men of Middle Earth are the up front bold type, who stands up to challenge the forces of darkness head to head.

Re: What race would you be?

A Hobbit here!! Nothing would make me anything else, except maybe because I'm close to nature (like elves) but hobbits are too. ahh, a simple life, always laughing, nothing to worry about, not messed up in all those big matters away south! and being little wouldn't worry me, because everyone around me would be little as well, so it wouldn't be any difference <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

I'd be an Elf. It would be wonderful to live in Rivendell, Lorien, or even Mithlond. The West too. I guess a Vala or Maia would be asking a bit much! A hobbit would be neat too, the quiet life, lots of meals! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

all the environment and characteristics of a hobbit seem to be much more of a paradise than the others. Immortality would be nice but good food, good music, good people, good dwellings makes up for that! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I would like to be an Ent though I might be a little too hasty in that decision. They're not immortal but sure live for a loooong time. And it sure would be fun to drink with your toes, sleep standing up and go "hoom hm" all the time! Only downside is the Ent-wives. Can't find them!

You could be the one to find the ent-wives Durins Bane86 but I think being an ent would be boring. I would be of the elven kind.

Two sides of me struggle...The conformist would like to be a hobbit, of course (Brandyback, not to make things too boring)

But, my other side desires to be a man...again. But beorning. Beorning and the first female skinchanger in the world! Um, I like animals [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] (not excluding vargs nailed up to the tree [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] )

I don't think I'd be a dragon, I'd get bored laying around all day. I'd ideally be a hobbit cause they have more fun, but I'm more suited to be a dwarf-I like caves and gems and sparkly things. But the generator said I'd be a ringwraith-this alarmed me somewhat, I'm not a bad person! Although it would be cool, Balin999 has a good point!

I would like to be a Dwarf. Despite my elven name i think that Dwarves suit me. Lonely , mysterious beared flok dwelling deep in the earth while forging weapons and othe wondrous items which the sunlight might never see. Moreover i believe that a long, deep grief and an endless mourning accompany Dwarves throught thei lives, They can fierce warriors and yet so noble kings with heroic deed that are kept secret, shining pride for this indeed glorious race. The matter of death concerns me too. They are mortals yet the differ from humans because their lives have meaning and are long enoough to fulfill their desires. In addition they are trustworthy and wise.

Can I be a ringwraith? No? I suppose I'll have to be an elf of Loth Lorien then. That way I get to whinge for the rest of eternity about being forced to leave it to go to the Undying Lands.

I would definately be a Hobbit. I have the same love of life. I don't like change, but, like Pippin, I wouldn't turn down an adventure. I have other Tookish qualities: I'm forever getting into trouble, if I'm not wrong, he and his line are Fallohides, and thet is what kind of Hobbit I'd be anyway. I just love hobbits. If I were Hobbit, I'd be about 3'1, since that is how high my waist is.

I would probably be a human.
Reason: They seem less tied to fate. Elves and Dwarves seem locked into the way that they lead life. Their form seem more malable (sp?). Look at what the humans who had the rings became. I would study magic and learn the extent of the power I could wield and then, being human, with a more malable form would transcend that form [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]. Or mayhap I could acquire on of the human rings and slowly gain the powers of the Ringwraiths and hopefully (but most likely not) stay focused enough not to fall into league with Sauron.

Gee! This is a tough one! I would love to be an elf, anything to get next to Legolas! Riiight...I think I like elves because they have the ears (I know, hobbits have them too, and they are also sweet, but I don't want to be that short), and the grace. Plus, I felt a certain kinship with Galadriel, at least in the movie.
Love,
Lush

I would like to be a Beorning
