It won't work on my computer but I am pretty sure that the Encyclopedia of Arda has good information on orcs and Uruk-hai. The website is http://www.glyphweb.com/arda/

I know that many times in LotR Tolkien refers to man's mortality as the "doom of man," but did he not also say

Exactly! Saruman grew power-hungry and built his replica of Barad-dur and Sauron's army. Even if it "was just a child's plaything or an ignorant slave's imitation" (paraphrasing) it was still very...

Woops! I forgot about the riders that Theoden left in Dunharrow. As for the math it is hard for me to contemplate how big any of these countries were. I always thought that the Riders of Rohan were...

I saw somewhere an interesting article about how Christopher Lee's character in SW2 tries to seduce Obi-Wan to the dark side when Obi-Wan is a prisoner in his lair, and how Christopher Lee's...

We know at least that the Moria Balrog had no wings because if it did why didn't it fly out of the pit below the bridge before it hit the water? As for the passage reffering to the long distance they...

I think that the trolls were made by Sauron in order to combat the Ents. Treebeard says something about how Sauron tried making something as powerful as the Ents when he made trols but the Ents were...

One thing that may change all of these theories: In the appendices under Calenders it says that 1 "elf year" is equal to 144 of our years. They called the "solar year" loa, or growth. Any age that is...

I think I read in the Proloque that one "breed" of hobbits sometimes wore boots in muddy weather so maybe Bilbo had some of that blood in him. Or maybe Tolkien made an innocent mistake. Was it a...

In response to Leto

The idea of PUs is a theory. Theories are based on observations that are true until further observations prove them wrong (that's a little unclear I think). Theories can...

If I had the Ring I would most likely lock it in a steel box and drop it into the middle of the ocean. I don't understand why they didn't do that in the first place (take it over the ocean). Elrond...

I'm not sure but they didn't see the "black riders" after that. Frodo couldn't remember anything after that though so they could have still been chasing him. The riders did ALL get new "winged...
