Right. Not a doubt.
What if we got to Middle-earth, and it wasn't what we wanted? We'd be stuck and disappointed.

I think that it's hard to speculate unless we know more about what the rings actually DO. Narya (the Great) is the ring of fire; Nenya is the ring of adamant; Vilya was the ring of... air? We could...

Sting Elvish food

What did the elves eat? I know they a) drank wine (Hobbit and TTT) b) cooked over woodfires (Hobbit) and c) had feasts (FOTR). But what did they actually eat? Rivendell, for instance: I can't see a...

Sting Olorin the Maiar

Why, do you think, Saruman was accounted the mightiest of the wizards when Olorin was the wisest of the Maiar? WAs it because of Saruman's cunning? Or was it a design of Olorin's? Also, were the...

Sting Prince Imrahil's elven descent

Were the Eldar only the Noldor elves? If Prince Imrahil was descended partially from Amroth's people, then either Amroth was a Silvan elf, which is implied in the book, or Prince Imrahil's ancestors...

What was the doom that Celeborn referred to in ROTK?

I'm sure that somewhere in one of the books it says that Cirdan dwelt in the Havens until the last ship had sailed, and that he was possibly still there. Where does it say that the Keepers of the...
