I have two versions of the Atlas: the old one and the new one.

In the old one, both dwarven mansions are placed around Mount Dolmed rather north, whereas in the new one Belegost is placed in the...

There are only few realms left in Wilderland. We have first the Dwarves of the Iron Hills under Daín, as you mentioned. Second, we have the realm of Thranduil in Mirkwood. Furthermore, there are the...

I agree here with JennyHallu. We must think in other dimensions talking about the behaviour of Gandalf. And of course, not only in things which concerns Gandalf, Elvish things are also 'different'.

I also do not really, what I should think about it.

I could imagine, that this work is a stand-alone work of Narn I Hín Húrin, which
1. should be readable without the context of the Silmarillion...

Another question is bothering me. Tolkien made clear, that Elladan, Elrohir and Arwen had to make their choices. They could delay their choice, but not for forever. But what if they don't choose?...

I agree with you, that Gandalf hadn't really a 'home' in his time in Middle-Earth. He was wandering and helping and wandering and helping all the time, so it is understandable, that there was no need...

Sauron isn't dumb. He had no choice. He tortured Gollum and even so he didn't get the knowledge about the location of the One Ring. He only knew the words "Baggins" and "Shire". But he knew the power...

I think, that it is worth considering the fact, that the Nazgûl were abroad and deep in the 'enemies land'. Although they are very powerful in spreading fear, they had to be careful not to attract...

The Hunt of the Ring is a good reference to the movements of the Nazgûl. The following quotes are taken from Scull & Hammond: A Reader's Companion

There were only three Nazgûl in Bree and two...

I've also been thinking about this difficulty of the 'renewed elvish strain'. Macalaure's explanation may fit well (and is well, too), but could that be? Every child of an "Elvish-Half-Elven" is...

Given the etymology of the name and its meaning, I would say it reffers completely to Harad.[/QUOTE]

But Tolkien decided later 1967, that Incánus was a Quenya name and the name came from the...

Tolkien used many names of his old legends in Lord of the Rings. Maybe this was causes, because he was never thinking, that his Silmarillion will be published. Consequently he could have used his...

It may be another case, because Melkor lost much power or rather gave it away. His body was biological at all thinking on the wounds, which he received from Fingolfin.

How did you come to that meaning? The Ring only stretches the life of someone, when it is in his possession. First, Frodo didn't have the Ring while he was going to Tol Eressea. Second, the Ring was...

Not really, all what I know is, that he went to Tol Eressea at the Age of 53. Tolkien stated in one of his Letters, that Frodo will die there but he didn't mention an exact point of time or an exact...

I agree with narfforc. Círdan is often seen as a simple boat-builder and Guard of the Havens. But one time I analysed Círdan's behaviour in the First Age and came to the conclusion, that all his...

The Eldest Being could be also Círdan, if he has awoken at Cúvienen. But in this case, we could only speculate, how old he is.

About the Seven Fathers it is enough said, I think. But not for the female Dwarves. Of course there should be some female Dwarves from the beginning. Otherwise there wouldn't be a race of Dwarves....

Sorry, but I don't get it. What part exactly means, that The tharni may thus have been equivalent to the silver pennies of Eriador ? :confused:
