    Silmarillion project

    I have a CD reading of the Silmarillion and it takes over 13 hours:eek: to listen to it all so I guess that you should take it in small chunks:D It is a series by it self.

    Silmarillion project

    Some opinions off the top of my head.:) All Chapters should be done. I vote for word for word Since most of Beleriand is now underwater, archeological digs are a nonstarter. Some chapters should be narrated and some would be better as re-enactments If you can do it accuately then go for...

    How did Boromir bide his time in Rivendell?

    vampires in lotr

    The only mention of a vampire in the Silmarillion was when Huan took up the wolf-hame of Draugluin, and the bat-fell of Thuringwethil. Thuringwethil was the messenger of Sauron and was wont to fly in vampire's form to Angband; for her great fingered wings were barbed at each joint's end with...

    Favorite Quote from Tolkien's Work

    '.....No taste of food, no feel of water, no sound of wind, no memery of tree or grass or flower, no image of the moon or star are left to me. I am naked in the dark, Sam, and there is no veil between me and the wheel of fire. I begin to see it with my waking eyes, and all else fades.' 'What a...

    The power of the curse

    I think that there is a code of conduct and ethics in play here. Feanor basically cursed himself. With his 'Oath' he commited to a course of action that could not be avoided.

    Elf deaths, etc.

    Elves that died by the sword went to the Halls of Mandos. Bilbo and Frodo went to Tol Eressea, there they lived out what live they were to have without pain and in peace. I speculate that Frodo being only 52 years old when he left had at least 80 more years ahead of him, about Bilbo I am...
