    I changed my mind. I made a hasty decision in the past. All my post are really long, a-lalla-lalla-rumba-kamanda-lindor-burúme, and my wife says that I never get to the point. Taurelilómëa-tumbalemorna Tumbaletaurëa Lómëanora, I must already be an ent. hoom hom.

    I would choose dwarf. I've always been fascinated with them. They are very different, almost alien, compared to the other races. I love the urban lifestyle, so living in an underground city would be cool. I admire the endurence and toughness as well. They're hard core, serious folks. They get really fired up by loot. For me especially, the skill and craft. I'm a painter/illustrator. I know that's more of an elven thing; but picking a Noldo is too easy. I'm more the rough around the edges type (half nerd, half barbarian).

    Well has to be Ainu for me, although I'd probably slum it a lot and take an Elven form or whatever in MiddleEarth to take part in events, Deliberately limiting my power and changing form to say a Hobbit for a while and eat and drink loads.. etc etc..

    Can't recall if JRRT himself ever noted the meaning, but anyway I think Mithrellas could mean *Grey Leaf (mithren + las(s)).

    My OC is called Grey-Leaf for it is the only name he knows. He is half elven and is visited in his dreams by Luthien who encourages him to seek out Star-Dome (Elrond) at Imladris (Rivendell). Elrond takes him under his wing and gives him the name Atreyu a and teaches him elven magic and fighting techniques.

    It's my OC! A half elf who only knows himself as "Grey-Leaf" is visited in his dreams by Luthien who tells him to "Seek Star-Dome of Imladris" Grey-Leaf goes to Rivendell and meets Elrond who gives him the name Atreyu and teaches him elven magic, fighting skills as well as elven lore and history.

    I would probably be a human, why would i be anything else? Other than a hobbit, or dwarf of course! (I have the feet of a hobbit anyway, stupid genetics)

    It's pretty obvious, an elf. Wait but I already am an elf. Oh, then an eagle. Soaring so high and being so free. Not to mention saving good guys and dropping boulders and dive bombing the evil ones!

    I identify as a man of Numenor. I like the idea of having a long lifespan but not necessarily being immortal.

    Only as long as Sauron lives, he's the one who keeps them alive.

    I would be a Hobbit. I'm more into the hobbit lifestyle myself. So I would be a Hobbit.

    I would be a Hobbit. I'm more of a home body. Who like to eat like hobbits. and read my books.:)
