There is one orcish expletive that stands out in my mind: GARN, which we, as readers, may translate into any number of recognizable expletives in use today.

Given that Minas Morgul was home to the Nazgul, it makes perfect sense to me that the Lt. of Minas Morgul would have been a Nazgul as well.

Phantom brings up an interesting point on why they didn't know each other prior to the Council of Elrond.

I imagine there may have been other way's to reach the front door. Remember that Aragorn was rather anxious to reach the safety of Lothlorien before the orcs of Khazad Dum were able to regroup and...

I saw it. I thought it was pretty good as far as poking fun at the current pop culture surrounding PJ's films. Anyone who thinks the episode makes mockery of JRRT's works is missing the point of...

While the boats of Lothlorien may be unsinkable, nothing is mentioned as to wether or not they may be capsized.

So perhaps Gimli is merely concerned about an unplanned dunking, through...

Birdland seems to raise the best point so far, about only Nazgul Controlling a Fell Beast, as to why Sauron didn't have an Air Force.
I don't think time would have been much of a factor against,...

I'm not so sure it was Sauron who made the morgul blades. The name implies they come from the Morgul Vale, which is inhabited by the Nazgul. And the leader among the Nazgul was the Witch-King, a...

I am going to add to Gandalf theGrey's line of reasoning.

This is my second attempt to post in this topic, for some reason the first wouldn't go through (a day or two after the initial start of this thread). So better late than never.

Otherland is a good series. I think that the Tolkien references found within were a nice touch, and help exemplify Tolkiens works as a driving influence on the modern Fantasy genre.

Given that JRRT more or less describes the Arkenstone as a unique object, I would say that the Dwarves valued the Arkenstone for it's self and not in terms of it's monetary value.

And who's to say those same orcs hadn't made any other entrances to and from Moria, or that the Dwarves hadn't made any secret entrances, as well?
