Re: The Tolkien Translation Game!

Does the shadow gate refer to the Black Gate(s)?

Re: Lord of the Rings series!?

Linguistically, I really liked the dwarves invoking Aulë. I have noted this technique in a lot of fantasy books I’ve read recently. Instead of “oh God”, there is “Oh <Deity>”. It’s a clever technique - it jumps out at the reader/watcher and makes perfect sense in terms of linguistic evolution. I did...

Re: The Stranger of Udûn? - New Info and the Identity of Meteor Man

Lol. I’ll be highly annoyed if the Stranger is Gandalf. Two reasons. First, I find all the interactions between him & Nori very irritating. If he can’t understand the language then he can’t understand a gazillion things. Including “friend”. :roll: Second, it is absolutely counter to how Gandalf ...

Re: Episode 3 (Spoilers)

Finished Episode 3. I didn’t find Elendil (ooh, I liked him & the Lore library!) as only a Captain, and nothing indicating a “noble” house that surprising. He is of the Faithful, and the Faithful are out of favor in Númenor. Makes sense (to me). The whole harfoot tribe leaving behind Nori’s fami...

Re: The Stranger of Udûn? - New Info and the Identity of Meteor Man

I felt the fireflies dying and his reaction to it was not evil. It reminded me of uncontrolled power leading to loss, and regret for that loss. I really don’t see Why the showmakers would change the way the known Maiar came. That is so much more in line with their purpose on ME. But then, look at wh...
