I would want to make the line of the stewards the new line of kings. Probably through showing that my line is the closest living line to the kings and hence should be awarded the throne.

However...

I always pictured Morgoth as someone "beautiful" when he walked among elves as the... god damn it I can't remember the phrase, but something like the giver of gifts. But then, when he lost the...

To anyone who haven't seen the film, go watch it. It's available on youtube and on bornofhope.com and it's amazing. I normally hate to promote things but everyone should see it.

Born of Hope

I've read the books more than twice and seen the official movies ten times but I'm still most moved by the fan film "Born of Hope". I just wonder if someonelse likes it as much as I do or at least...

I considered Aragorn himself and the sword of Elendil as great enemies of Sauron, however I felt that that was more dangerous to Sauron himself than to his armies. Of course it would cause fear among...

Why did Sauron fear Aragons coronation?

Correct me if I'm wrong, or if have drawn to much from the movies as I have lost my (digital) copy of the trilogi, and the Silmarillon.

Gandalf says something like (and I'm pretty sure I'm...

WOW! This thread has exploded since I last checked on it, and I love it!

Nerwen, I suppose you are right, the "what if"-thinking got a bit unrealistic under the affection of an ale to many. I apologise and I thank you for pointing that out :)

You have valid points Borormir, but Gandalf reveals himself at Caradhras, does he not? At that point, would it change Saurons mind having Glorfindel with them? I mean, if Sauron did discover that...

Didn't they know that a few Balrogs (or was it just the one?) just run away, rather than fight to the end? (Altough a Barlrog perhaps would't be their first guess as to what Durins Bane really was)....

No one knew what Durings Bane was, but surely Gandalf and Elrond would have suspected that it was a Balrog, or am I just drunk and confused here?

I didn't mean that Glorfindel was to join the...

Since none of the members of the fellowship, except Frodo, were bound to go Mordor (Aragorn and Boromir were heading for Minas Thirith for example) I think that it wouldn't be a problem that...

Inziladuin:

Yes the Noldor weren't much involved, directly, to the events of the late third age, but to send Glorfindel to Lorien wouldn't have hurt, would it?

To make this clear

As the title says I just wan't to make the posts question clear.
1. Why didn't Glorfindel join the company?
2. What would have happened if he did? Would he just kick the a** of the Balrog and let...

What if Glorfindel joined the fellowship to Lothlorien?

I know that the discusson of replacing and/or adding some of the elves of Rivendell to the fellowship has been discussed before. I know that it would be folly to send the most powerfull elves to...

No I didn't really mean that Boromir was an ordinary man, if that was the case he wouldn't have fitted in with the rest of the company and would, from the readers point, seem misplaced. I...

Boromir - An example of a man?

Long time lurker, first time poster and I'm afraid I might be a bit to affected by the films. I've read the books, as well as the silmarillon, several times but watched the movies countless of times....
