Sting **Of Orcs**

I am bringing this matter to light because I think that the various essays and other texts on the origin and nature of the Orcs should be somehow included in our work.

However, I am still not entirely sure where and how to include them, and what to include.

In my version, I have included all the matter of the Orcs (with various differing versions - deliberately, because I think that even in the world of Middle-earth such things should be left obscure and worth pondering) in the chapter Of the Coming of the Elves.

Now - I SERIOUSLY think that we should start a thread on that chapter - to me, at least, it seems the most problematic of all the chapters of The Silmarillion (not minding FoG and the Ruin of Doriath...and Erendil).

Seems we have cross possted, Arvegil145. Seeing what gondowe had done in his spanish Version I revised my draft and included at least part of the text on orks from Myths Transformed. I will try to come up in the next days with expalnatory comments on my changes. But feel free to start a discussion even before that.

Respectfuly

Actually, I was thinking of including a sub-chapter in the Coming of the Elves.

Of the Orcs I named it - it seems to me, at least, better to deal with that matter separately from the main narrative.
