Pipe What kind of person would you be ?

I`m quite new here and hope nobody minds if I start a new topic, when there have been topics like that before...

If you lived in Middle- Earth what kind of life would lead?
Would you be a great adventurer or have also much fun being a hobbit and having a nice little garden in the shire?

In ME I“d like to be an Elven ranger from Rivendell who roams the land...i like this kind of character...

As a hobbit i would be like Bilbo or Frodo.. diffrent than the other hobbits.

hmm well.., if you have ideas of middleearth charaters that you could be, tell me..

I know i have an elf-name, but I'd prefer to be a hobbit. A simple life, but I'd like to be creative, if there are such hobbits. I'd also have a wee garden, and pop round to Sam's once a week for tips! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

If I could, I'd be several things! I love Hobbits and Elves...but I think I'd like to be a Elf, partly because of their affinity for the earth and also because I'd love to learn how to use a bow like an Elf! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I think I would like to be an female elf warrior. Arching is cool, and short blades even cooler... add that with some fury and speed and you got the ultimate fighter [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

With an Elven name, I would be an Elf, Not a warrior Elf though, a sneaky one maybe, raiding the kitchens of Rivendell would be cool, but alas I am a spook and can do that no longer. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

I think I'd be a wizard of air and lightning. I'd travel as much as possible and have a familiar gyr falcon named Darallious. My name would be Wistil and I'd be a master of the whip. I'd have a dapled horse named Rivenli and I'd prefer the mountains over meadows.

I'd most dearly love to be a Hobbit, though with my dependancy on machinary I'd likely still be of the race of Men. *sigh*

But if I could choose, I'd certainly be a Hobbit! (Eh, Sam, can I borrow from your garden? Mine would look horrid; I killed beans, beans for crying out loud!) [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I'd be a bit of a sedentary Hobbit-maid, though. Most assuredly into the reading of books. And I wouldn't have a pony; I'd ride around on a great dain! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

D'you think they'd be nice to a half-blind Hobbit? I know many Men aren't, at least the young ones at any rate...

hey, forming an femal elf-warrior group is a great idea [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]!
As i said before i“d love to be an elven ranger. To roam middle-earth would be such fun and i like arching and elven language.

Enedhil, i think there are at least some very creative hobbits, i would like that, too.. reading and writing poetry and so on the whole day, but i couldn“t be like that for long.
I have so many ideas of people i want to be...a fire-wizard would be cool, too.

Well as you can see by my name, I like Hobbits very much, and I think that I would love to be one in ME. Though I think I would just like to be a simple Hobbit, stick to my own buisness, tend to my garden, and not get caught up in all this adventuring buisness thats going round.

It's a toss-up between hobbit and elf. I love the hobbits because let's face it...they can throw a party! Plus I'm shaped more like a hobbit than an elf. But I would love to be able to shoot a bow and swing a sword like an elf-warrior. Guess I need to join Galadriel's Guard. Will you accept a short elf (or maybe a tall hobbit...)?

I would love to be an elf. Living forever and being able to gather wisdom and much more. I would live a quiet and peaceful life. Being born in Middle-Earth, perhaps in Lothlorien, living there for a long time and then leave for the west.. Once reaching there I would try to become as wise as possible, listening to the valar. Of course I want to know how to handle sword, bow and arrows, but that is not my greatest wish. Living a peaceful life, reading, writing and gathering wisedom would be the best for me..

I'd be a Hobbit, no question about it. In a perfect world one like Sam (ie, loyal and humble and devoted and all that good stuff, with a lot of hobbit-sense, but I still get to go on an adventure), but being a Baggins comes in at a really really close second. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Definitely not your average Hobbit, me.

Hmmm. I would be an elven scout. Not a warrior, a scout who can defend herself through weapon or secrecy and knows her own limitations. Free to wander hither and thither as my heart desires, under the command of no one. I would not fight in wars, but gain as much knowledge as I could from whenever I may travel. A bit independent of the rest of the elves. Ahhh, that would be the life. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
