    Discrepency in Hobbit Birthday Customs

    Thank you Rosie, and yes... I do remember you! :) Well I was hoping for a theoretical approach... but you cant win them all!

    Discrepency in Hobbit Birthday Customs

    Hey, it's been a while!!! But I'm rereading FOTR and discovered an interesting something in regards to birthday customs of Hobbits that could probably be stretched to some sort of discussion and theories: The Hobbits give other Hobbits presents on their birthdays. Yet when Smeagol claims...

    War of the Ring- A little to good to be true?

    No one has really touched upon the most crucial deciding factor in the WotR: cavalry and element of surprise. Cavalry was everything in those sorts of battles. The Rohirrim were by far the best horsemen, which accounts for their outstanding victory at the eaves of Fangorn. Another thing that...

    Yet another allegorical question

    Hmmm... I see it now. It wasn't the Ring or Sauron that was evil... it was the hills! Frodo succumbed to the Ring on all those lovely Amon's! :eek:

    What is your favourite character

    Sam didn't kill Shelob! (I'm assuming you meant Shelob) I do agree with the Sam = true hero thing. Go Sam!

    The Oath-Breakers

    Ah thank you Beorn. Im just too lazy to look it up. That makes sense now. For some reasonI thought the Oath Breakers were the numenoreans...

    The Oath-Breakers

    With the upcoming third movie, and because I was wondering this one day while swimming laps... who were the Oath Breakers again? It makes sense when I read it, but I dont have the time to do it, so could someone please explain to me who and when and what these Oath Breakers are that Aragorn...

    Finding God in "The Lord of the rings"

    Great points Madame Maggott, was this topic brought up before? :confused:

    Finding God in "The Lord of the rings"

    Well I did not feel like looking back in the thread for this subject, but I noticed a very interesting familiarity between the story of the beginning of Dwarves and of Abraham and Isaac in the Old Testament. Aule has one thing he loves above all else (save Illuvatar), the Dwarves. Simarily...

    Celeborn: Empty?

    Be he a male or not, Galadriel was much stronger than him in mind, body, and power. In the UT, of Galadriel and Celeborn, it states she was just as lithe and athletic as any male Elf in Valinor, and just as tall. She was the wielder of Nenya and single handedly upkept the glory of Lothlorien...

    How do Orcs Breed?

    Eomond: Orcs actually DID used to be Elves. Read the Sil, Melkor caught Elves and twisted them with the dark arts.

    The "secret" dwarves tongue?

    I bet if Gimli told anyone his real name, it was Galadriel or Legolas.

    The "secret" dwarves tongue?

    I KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION!!! I dont feel like digging up LotR but in the Appendices, Tolkien states that the Dwarves had issued that battle cry since before the days of Men. Something to that effect. That is the ONLY thing they say in teh Dwarf-tongue, minus the various places in...

    Finding God in "The Lord of the rings"

    I am only stating what I read in the prologue and what was said in the EE. Tolkien specificaly made the LotR as a universe of its own and was not to be confused with or compared with the real world. I have heard this a number of times, and if I wasnt at school right now I would find some...
