Re: What race would you be?

I think I'd stay right as I am now. Being a Hobbit wouldn't be bad, but I wouldn't like being that short. Being an Elf, well it would be good, but the concept of forever boggles my mind. Being a Dwarf wouldn't be bad, either but I'd be short. Ents are too lonely, even by my standards.

Re: What race would you be?

I would have to say that, without a doubt, I would be of elven-kind. Look at the advantages. Imortality. Passing from the circles of the world when you grow tired of it. Re-incarnation for those untimely accidents like running with scissors and what not. Living alongside the Gods in Valinor. Being surpassingly fair. The few disadvantages are way off set by the obvious advantages.

Re: What race would you be?

I suppose that &quot;Vala&quot; isn't an option? <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

I wouldn't like to be an ent forever, but for a limited period of time (say, a week) it'd be great. It'd be nice to do everything slowly, not rushing around like everyone else does.

Ent for a week... heh... Zoe's are such hasty creatures <img src=wink.gif ALT="">
I'd think you'd need at least a decade to truly begin to appreciate being an Ent.

Re: What race would you be?

Surely, Feanor, elves are bound to the circles of the world, until the end of Arda? That's the reason why I prefer mortality.

I agree on the wanting to be a wizard comment. That would be interesting. If not, elf is my 2nd choice, since they love song and verse so much.

Re: Race

I'd be Man, preferably descended from Hurin's side of the House of Hador.
You see Men are mortal; they leave the world when they die to be one with Eru. They do not live forever, but instead have the gift of Death, 'that even the Powers shall envy ere the End'. Of course, hobbits have that gift too, but they are a little short for my liking.

Elves rule!

I dunno, Gwaihir. Since it is highly likely that elves will become 'one with Eru' too eventually, though not for a long long time (the end of Arda), I think I'd sacrifice the gift of &quot;Death&quot; for an immortal body free of disease and fair 'beyond the measure of men'. *sigh*

Who I would have been..

I would have liked to be a Ranger, and to have been one of Aragorn's buddies.

I like the idea of roaming Middle Earth while helping protect the Shire, hunting for Gollum etc...

Re: Who I would have been..

I voted MAN on the assumption that Magic Men were included.
Elves also appeal for their unique brand of magical insights into mortality and nature and truth and harmony and all, but I wouldn't really fancy running the risk of becoming inescapably immortal....
I reckon Rangers carry a pretty romantic appeal aswell,
if you ignore the fact that they hardly ever change their under-garments. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Who ever said that Ranger do not change undergarments, what about Hobbits then??????????

I think all the characters in the LOTR have taken offence.

Yes, but at least hobbits had more chance to change clothes. And they probably wouldn't have gotten as dirty anyway, living in their nice quiet Shire.

Re. What I would have been

I voted an Elf. Elves are the most fair, can somewhat communicate with thier minds, can do magic, make lovely music and are adored by all the other races.
My second choice would be a Maia, the ability to shape shift is very nifty. I wouldn't choose Maia over elves tho because I just love Elves and think they are the most wonderful race.
Elves can become like men and not be bound to Arda as Luthien and Arwen show. I suppose Arwen is a better example because Luthien had to sing to Mandos for her mortallity. btw what did Arwen do to have this or am I reading the book wrong.

Re: Re. What I would have been

I just read through and realized that I never said what I voted for. It was MEN. The more I read through the UT and HoME (and re-read Sil and LotR) the Mannish histories interest me more and more.

Re: What I would have been

I like the elves, but the thing about being immortal kinda scares me off. I don't think I want to live for thousands of years.
I think I would like to be a hobbit, because they don't worry that much and are always happy...

Re: What I would have been

I too said elf. Primarily because they were the most relaxed, care free of the races. But also, they were more in tune with nature, immortal (if that's a good thing or not is another story), strongest of mind, more knowledgeable, most artful. Sounds great to me.<img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Hobbit or prehaps Dwarf

When I started this strain I said hobbit but now I think dwarves are nice too (I dunno why but I seem to be drawn to short folks) Hobbits are so peaceful and live in the pleasent sunshine and are very cheery. On the other hand dwarves are craftsmen and live in the dark torch lit halls of carven stone and can be very ill tempered. Kinda like the two sides of me, really depends on what day you catch me on. As for elves, love 'em just don't like immortaility and honestly, I don't like popularity. I'd rather be unknown than be praised, I dunno why but that's me.

Dwarves

dwarves are really cool, that would have been my second choice. but to stubborn and hot tempered, not to mention short.

the reason i would choose dwarves would have to be for their huge and beautiful mansions and great craftmenship, i would have forged me some really kickass armor and weapons. i guess that is why my favorites beside turin and tuor are aule, the noldor, and eol

Re: Dwarves

Ent for me...they had the best deal out of all. Long lived, wise, kind to little forest creatures, yet fearsome in battle. if only their senses of humor weren't so wierd. And they got to live in forests. <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Re: Race?

I would love to be a Ranger. It sounds like such an exciting life, fraught with risk and danger.
My second choice would be an elf. They make enchanting music and they live in their own beautiful world which can't be snatched from them even when they're in trouble. Legolas lived in that world even when he was with Aragorn and Gimli.

Re: Race?

i also agree in the wizard comment (Look at the name). It would be a great life to live to know so much and to guide people and to just be a master of magic.

&quot;dont meddle in the affairs of wizards&quot;

Re: What race would you be?

Could it be anything but elf? Immortality, although it would eventually go weary...think of the possiblities. Millenia would pass before you - the knowledge and wisdom you could acquire! ARGH! I'm still here. Damn. Hobbits are happy though, the Shire is nice and 130 odd years for a long-lived one isn't bad. Dwarves live longer, and they have all the riches...but I'd get a bit claustrophobic all cramped up in the center of a mountain. Ents..nope. I couldn't stand being a tree. Boooooring. Elves rule.

Re: What race would you be?

Dwarves have the coolest towns. After Elves, of course. <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

It's holiday in Elvenhome and the glades of the forests are covered in white snow. Come in and enjoy.

Re: What race would you be?

Now that I have been leafing through my UT book I think the Druedain were a pretty curious bunch of people, ugly but nifty little fellows, so I think with all of the diversity in the human race I would definately choose human, from there it is hard to say.

Hmmm

I would have to undoubtably agree with...elf. Despite their decline. <img src=wink.gif ALT="">

Re: Hmmm

Although most would suspect me of being an elf, Im starting to lean mroe and mroe towards being a hobbit... although the elves are quite the merry folk, I think living for such a long time would eventually become rather dreary, having to see good friends leave time and time again.... whereas hobbits are sill a very merry folk (although with their exceptions as well *cough* Sackville-baggins *cough*) and a pretty long lifetime (by our standards) as well... I think I would prefer being a hobbit.. not much o worry about living nice and cozy in the Shire blowing smokerings all over ME.. yeah thats the life <img src=smile.gif ALT=""> Not to say that I wouldnt mind being an elf, but the lifespan of a hobbit is more to my liking.

Try but once more to usurp my place and the love of my father, and maybe it will rid the Noldor of one who seeks to be master of thralls." -Feanor to Fingolfin- -=I may be found merrymaking at <a href=http://www.barrowdowns.com/>The Barrow Downs</a>=-</p>
