    This is a topic I'd like to see debated. There is no time limit. There is no team size requirement. If you want to take a side, just post. The debate ends when it ends. After it ends, I'd like to move it to the book forum for further discussion.

    Oooh! :D

    I think he did, there wasn't much use in the maggot folk of Morgoth as it is, he just used them as fodder, they couldn't be trusted in possitions of power, e.g. Shagrat and Gorbag in TTT and ROTK, very treaturous (sp), so they couldn't be trusted with possitions of high power such as "Gothmog, the mouth of Sauron".
